Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a constant contradiction. I'm quiet, but can get seriously
loud. At first I'm shy, but I warm up quickly. And I swear, I'm
completely sane, although I can seem totally crazy. I'm a preschool
teacher for developmentally delayed/disabled 2-5 yr olds.... sanity
is completely overrated in my line of work. :)
I have two teenagers that keep me young. We have a very interesting
and surprisingly open relationship. I'm still "mom", but am
secretly tickled that I'm also "friend". He (19) is my rock. She
(16) is my sunshine. I can't imagine my life without either.
I love animals. I've rescued a sweet full size collie (Lassie, only
black instead of tan), and two very spoiled cats. If it were
practical, I'd probably have more. I'm soft hearted and hate to see
I'm not a damsel who needs to be rescued (although I enjoy the
thought). My daddy really wanted a son, but was blessed with two
daughters, so he "made do". I love fixing and building things. I
actually own tools, and not that creepy pink set from Walmart. I
can change my own oil, unclogg a drain, and rework the wiring in a
lamp (after the cat chewed through the cord). Don't worry, I do
"women things" too. I love to cook and would everyday if my
schedule allowed. I can sew, both with a machine and by hand. And I
have other "talents" as well.... (there has to be *some* mystery
left for later though)
I'm not afraid to get dirty, but I clean up pretty well (or so I've
been told). I can hold my own in just about any social setting from
hanging out with the guys, to dinner with the company execs. I
think my favorite is snuggling on the couch, watching a movie, or
just talking. Intelligent conversation is my drug of choice. If you
can keep up with the way my twisted mind works.... wow. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm really quirky and as crazy as this sounds (considering I'm in
my 40s), I'm constantly discovering new things about myself. I've
lived a bit of a sheltered life up until my divorce. Since then,
I've opened myself up to a lot of new experiences (hell, let's be
honest, I went through the typical "you can't tell me what to do
anymore" phase and got a little wild). I've discovered a lot of
things about myself that I hadn't realized before. And
surprisingly, the more I learn, the more I really like myself....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
figuring things out. I have an unusual way of looking at things.
When there's a problem, I have a tendency to figure out how to fix
it, and it's not always the most conventional solution.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my smile, my sarcastic wit, my eyes (and if I was honest, I'd add
my wide ass to that list, although I've been assured it's not as
big as I imagine.... )
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: Stephen King, Anne Rice, John Patterson (although there's
always a book in my purse, on my nightstand, and in my car, and
yes, I'm reading them all at once...)
movies: horror, thrillers, comedy
music: just about anything as long as it has some sort of
food: no mushrooms (allergic), otherwise I'm open to anything.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
do my kids count for one thing or two? lol
family, friends, love, sleep, time, sex
not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
random craziness.... I did say you have to be careful to keep up
with how my mind works. I have a tendency to jump from one topic to
another with seemingly no connection between the two....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
burned out on the day to day. ready to either relax with the
family, or go out and have some fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to hate carrying a purse (I know, not the typical "girl"
attitude), but in the past year or two I've not only changed my
mind, but you never know what you'll find in there.... really,
sometimes it surprises me what I can pull out of that thing....
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You live in the general vicinity, I sound interesting enough, and
Take a chance. I don't bite.... hard. lol
If you're married, attached, seeing someone, etc... You may not
want to waste your time. I'm not looking to be the reason someone's
marriage/relationship failed. I've been on the other side of that
situation, and it hurts. I won't knowingly cause anyone pain.
