I am a femme-y, professional, fun-loving, single woman in Atlanta. I support myself as a corporate drone for "duh man." My passions are movies, books, music, playing games (like Taboo... not mind games), going out to dinner with friends, and meeting new and interesting people. My favorite TV shows are Glee, Lost, So You Think You Can Dance, and Top Chef. I'm a sucker for reality TV. I'm somewhat extraverted, very loving and affectionate, and independant.
I grew up in Atlanta, lived in North Carolina for 15 years, and moved back in 2007. I have a degree in vocal performance(opera), and love singing, whether on stage or in the shower. I am a self-proclaimed dork, and enjoy being silly, but I have a closet serious side as well. I laugh as much as anyone I know. I don't take myself too seriously, so I don't mind looking goofy in front of others. Right now I am looking for some casual dating and a little affection!
I love to be surrounded by positive, honest people who care about themselves and others. I enjoy my life and would like to hear from others who enjoy theirs as well. I am embarking on a wonderful spiritual journey, and enjoy learning about new ideas. I am committed to becoming the best me that I can be, and would love to meet someone who shares that desire.
Dorky sense of humor important,
Excellent communication skills ESSENTIAL!
I'm very much your average lesbian-next door, although no one ever thinks I'm gay. I'm hoping to meet someone that I can click with and have some chemistry. I'm sure there are plenty of people like that in Atlanta but I'm not finding them. COME OUT COME OUT WHEREVER YOU ARE!!!! I guess we're all just sitting at home complaining about the same thing! :-)
Be brave! Take a chance and say, "Hi!" What's the worst that could happen?
remembering obscure facts that don't really matter (not even trivia... just dumb stuff)
