Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's taken me a while to fill this out.I find it difficult to sum
up my life and "self" so briefly and online at that!I've read
summaries that go on for paragraphs!Which is fine but mine will be
brief: I am a work in progress.However my childhood growing up as
the youngest of nine siblings was/is an essential part of the woman
I am today.At a young age I learned the importance of
forgiveness but still strive to convey these qualities without
fail.Far from being spoiled,I was encouraged to stand up to
bullies,fight fair,be independent and mature.That being said,I will
own up to the occasional flash of bratty behavior but am mature
enough to apologize.As for labels(which I try to avoid):I'm
feminine but not overdone,attractive and am attracted to feminine
women.However I am open to the possibilities of attraction and not
into role-playing.I hope this gives some insight for now.Besides
isn't the point of dating/friendship "getting" to know someone
versus knowing it all before you even meet?
