Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello there and thanks for stopping by. I'm looking to meet new
friends and also searching for that special someone for a long term
relationship. I want a life partner--someone to come home to and
share details about our days, make plans with, fall asleep next to
and who makes me happy just by being near them.
Please understand: I am NOT looking for a casual hookup or
just some "fun."
Please do not use cutie, sexy, gorgeous, babe, sweetie, or any
other "pet" name in an initial message. It triggers such a visceral
negative reaction that I feel the need to mention it. I know people
are just trying to be endearing or break the ice, but it has the
opposite effect for me. Please get to know me first! This is a
simple and polite request -- if you're genuinely interested in
getting to know me then it shouldn't be a big deal, right?
I value honesty, respect and intelligence. I like to hit a the
Kernels or Roughriders game, play board & card games, go
mini-golfing or bowling (most adults use bumpers, right?), throw
darts poorly or hit pool balls with only slightly more skill, watch
movies and cuddle, cook or go for a walk together. It's more about
who I'm doing an activity with than the activity itself. I am an
optimist, can be contradictory at times, but always try to do what
I have 3 cats. Fortunately I'm in no danger of becoming a crazy cat
lady because I am not now, nor will I ever be, a lady! Seriously
though, if you're allergic, this probably won't work out long term.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a great job working in sales/marketing for an IT company, a
second job working at a video store, and I've finally made friends
since moving here. I want to become involved in my community and
experience what life has to offer! Iowa may not be the most
glamorous place--I did live in Hawaii for 4 years, but it has
unique charm. I bought a house here a couple of years ago and I'm
learning the joys and pains of homeownership. Really, I asked for
this--proves I am crazy. :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
organizing things. I also dabble in a fair amount of craft-y type
things like scrapbooking, knitting, photography, etc. I enjoy
making jewelry and I've sold some too! I'm a pretty good cook, a
very good friend and listener, and I excel at packing due to a
talent for Tetris. Actually I'm really really good at Tetris.
Consider yourself challenged!

I'm a human!!! Run!!!
On here, probably the photos posted from a recent shoot. They are
PG-13, but I bet people get the wrong impression. Call it a social
experiment. I have gotten many compliments on my smile or eyes, so
I guess those are front runners. Otherwise, it probably depends on
the setting I'm in.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: anything by Anne McCaffrey, Janet Evanovich, Laurell K
Hamilton, JR Ward, or Dick Francis. I absolutely love to read!
Mysteries, fun and lighthearted romance novels, sci-fi/fantasy, and
historical fiction top my list but I always welcome suggestions for
new authors. From what I see on here I should read Vonnegut
Movies: Given that I work at Family Video part time, I try to watch
the 'big titles' that come out as time permits so I can make
recommendations to customers. Personally, I enjoy pretty much
anything but horror/slasher flicks or slapstick/stupid
comedy--except for Tommy Boy, Mr. Deeds and a few others. Movies
from my childhood like Willow, The Goonies, Disney movies, or Robin
Hood: Prince of Thieves and action movies are all pretty great,
especially disaster flicks like The Core, Volcano or The Day After
Tomorrow. I'm a Star Wars fan over Star Trek, but enjoy both. And
as a girl, feel-good romantic comedy works for me too
Music: I run the gamut from musicals to hard rock, country to top
40 and pop. I'm not a big fan of rap,opera or bluegrass.
Food: I really really hate mushrooms, bananas and raw tomatoes. I
love to cook though and generally prefer to have someone to cook
for. I try to make healthy eating fun and interesting, so I often
try to add new produce or seafood to my repertoire. Some of my best
creations are probably fried rice, chili, stuffed manicotti, herb
chicken with rice, homemade pizza, and BBQ. Now that I have a house
I want to learn to grill. Watch out steak, here I come! And my
steak preference keeps getting less cooked as I get older. From
well done as a kid to medium rare now...by the time I'm 70 I
suspect I'll just bite cows.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love most people's answers to this because they don't seem to
grasp the concept. It's the most private thing I'm willing to
admit, which means I'm okay making it public. So yeah, it's not
actually private, it's just toward that end of the continuum.
Drumroll please; here's the unveiling of my most private public
statement: I'm open to or interested in alternative relationships
and lifestyles. If you're genuinely interested, feel free to ask
what this means.
