Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm giving online dating a try because I'm shy around guys in
person and figured this would be an easier way for me to meet guys.
It's worked for a lot of people I know; one of my best friends from
college met a guy online and I just went to their wedding in
I was born with a birth defect so I do walk with crutches and use a
wheelchair. While I understand that can be quite intimidating,
please don't dismiss me because of it. I'm a pretty "normal" girl,
and I can do just about everything anyone else can. I drive my own
car, am capable of taking care of myself, and I am completely
capable of having kids of my own, which is something I want.
I'm a sucker for a love story, and I want one of my own. I totally
believe in soulmates and "the one." I want someone who loves me for
me but also helps me be a better person, as cliche as that is.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently living at home, (graduated from college in 2010), taking
a semester of classes to earn my Health Unit Coordinator
certification. Volunteering at the local humane society every
chance I get. If I'm not at home or school I'm at the shelter.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making friends, interacting with animals, listening, helping, word
finds, reading, spelling, grammar.
The first things people usually notice about me

Unfortunately I think a lot of people notice the chair first (I've
used a wheelchair since I was 12), but maybe that's not giving
people enough credit, who knows? People also notice that I'm
friendly, respectful, polite, and mature.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

As far as books go, I mostly read mystery novels.
My favorite movies are the rom-coms, but I also like comedies. As
long as it's not an action packed, shoot 'em up thriller, I'm
pretty easy to please.
The Backstreet Boys have been my favorite since I was 10 years old
and still are. I just went to my 5th BSB concert in July. I LOVE
them! I listen to mostly pop, some country, and a little tiny bit
I'm a pretty picky eater, I still take the crusts off my
sandwiches! I love mac and cheese. My family calls me Spud because
I like potatoes so much, especially mashed. I'm a true Minnesota
girl, I like my meat and potatoes and my hot dishes! Nothing spicy.
Seafood. Pretty much anything that's bad for me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Animals (I love love love animals)
5. Chapstick (Seriously, I have a problem. I find them all over the
house. I keep one in my purse and on my dresser at all times. If I
don't wear any my lips feel like they're on fire and I go
6. Music, ESPECIALLY my Boys!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't drink, so going out on the town or to bars is something
I've only done a handful of times. I usually spend a lot of time
with my parents and my dog. I go to a lot of movies, and out to
dinner with friends. I'm hoping Friday night will eventually be
date night! ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I often wonder (and worry) that I'll never find a guy, because of
my disability. It's a tough situation for me.
You should message me if
