I'm a really easy-going and open-minded kind of person and I enjoy the simple things. I can be perfectly happy with a good beer and a good book, but I have discerning taste, as well, and can appreciation the finer things. I don't think I'm your typical female in that my drama tolerance is very low and I'm not high maintenance. Ideally, I would like to find a man that inspires me - romantically, intellectually, creatively, and emotionally.
What I’m doing with my life
Working hard and taking time to appreciate the small things. I'm easily content with life.
I’m really good at
I love to bake and do it often (and well, or so I'm told.) I am an
avid knitter, as well. I've got a good hand for sketching.
I'm also very good at organization, problem-solving, and caring for
others. Maybe some people wouldn't consider those "talents", but I
The first things people usually notice about me
This question threw me, slightly, so I asked my friends what they noticed and got the following:
-My gentle nature, kindness, and warmth
-I laugh a lot
-I'm usually quiet during conversation because I'm absorbing it all
-I've got "good gams"
-I'm quick to be sarcastic
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music comes first for me and my taste is wide and varied. I listen to anything from classical to classic rock, pop to country, metal to folk. The Beatles, Opeth, ZZ Ward, Dresden Dolls, System of a Down, Led Zeppelin, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Joshua Radin, Eric Hutchinson, Faith Hill, and Sara Bareilles are all favorites.
I read daily--anything from Sci-Fi, fantasy and horror to historical fiction, cook books and Oprah's book club. Some of my favorite books are by Robert Jordan, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman and Bill Bryson.
I'm pretty picky about TV, but some of my favorites include The Big Bang Theory, Heroes, Sherlock, Dr. Who, and Battlestar Galactica. The movies that I’m drawn to are typically either British or action flicks, though I rarely get around to watching one anymore. Some of the films that I love include Clue, The Princess Bride, Love Actually, Sherlock Holmes, Dogma, Stranger Than Fiction, Talladega Nights, Across the Universe, Pride and Prejudice, the Harry Potter series, and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also love any Bollywood film I can get my hands on.
Food. I love going out to eat and trying new places, new foods. Asian food – whether it’s Thai, Indian, Chinese, or sushi – is my favorite, but I can just as easily be convinced to go out for pasta or your standard American fare. I have a love affair with potatoes. Also, after being a bad vegetarian for years, I’ve given in to the hamburger loving side of me completely. It's a craving I just can't shake.
The six things I could never do without
Music, baked goods, my best friends, caffeine in the morning, the
internet and a good book.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Finances. My job. My friends. What I'm going to make next.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sitting at home watching Netflix but I would love to have a reason not to be sitting at home watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was in a relationship with a woman, once.
