Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a small town girl with a wide variety of interests, who is
looking for a long term, meaningful relationship. I grew up a
tomboy and turned into somewhat of a girly girl, which means that I
can be very feminine one day and go camping and fishing the next. I
tend to lean toward elegance when dressing for an evening out but
am just as comfortable in a pair of jeans. I love the arts, good
music, good books (yes, I even love a mindless romance from time to
time), and the out of doors. Family is very important to me. I have
an unabating thirst for knowledge. I am perhaps best described as
an introverted extrovert. Passion is important to me, as are
honesty, integrity and respect. Availability, both physical and
emotional, is a must. I understand about the need for each of us to
have time we can call our own but the person I will make a priority
in my life must want me as a priority in his. To paraphrase Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr., I do not make decisions about the men I'm
my life based on the color of their skin, but rather on the content
of their character. Communication is very important and can get
people through the toughest of times.
I am very loyal and very patient, which sometimes works against me,
but these traits are nonetheless part of who I am and I genuinely
like me. If my life were a glass, it'd be half full. I am known to
have and voice my own opinions and beliefs, but just as importantly
I love to hear and contemplate the opinions and beliefs of others
(it goes back to that unabating thirst for knowledge thing).
Oh, I should point out that I am not interested in being a
sidekick, friend with benefits or part of a group. I'm looking to
be part of a stable relationship, not a stable of relationships.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After what feels like many years of focusing on only one thing, I
have finally finished my schooling and am in the process of
rediscovering myself, my hobbies, and pleasures. My children are,
for the most part, adults, although one of my children will most
likely be with me for years. I am not looking for a replacement
parent for her. I am a teacher.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm an excellent parent, teacher and friend. In my personal life, I
believe that when everyone tries to be the chief, it makes for a
chaotic and confusing life. I am an excellent follower of the right
person. People say I'm very smart, but generally I find myself
wondering why since most of what they're referring to just seems
like common sense to me. Oh, I also write really well. I'm sure
I'll think of more, but this is a good start.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Honestly, I have no idea. I'm not the kind if person to be flitting
around a room, so I really dont know. I am very shy and I think I
try to mask that which sometimes comes off as aloof. In actuality,
it's because crowds are difficult. One on one is much easier.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have an eclectic variety of musical interests which span
everything from country to classical. Music most often on on my car
radio would be old school R&B/soul, jazz and softer rock. My
favorite reading has always been in the area of historical fiction,
adventure, mysteries and the odd biography. I love love love
Shakespeare. He made words musical to me. My current favorite
authors are Vince Flynn and Daniel Silva. My secret favorite
authors (you know, the ones you love but rarely admit to) are E.L.
James and Christine Feehan. I'd love to be able to say that I love
the Tolkien books, but the truth is, I never could read those.
Thank goodness for movies! I'll answer the movie part of this a bit
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My children
3. Love in all of its many forms
4. Someone who understands me
5. Opportunities to learn new things
6. All the experiences that went into making me who I am today.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything. There are times I wish I could turn my brain off. If
this question is about my soapbox, then it would have to be
prejudices, and why people have them. I know. I wish I could say it
was the last joke I heard.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On a typical Friday night, I am probably catching up with my family
or friends. But I'm always open to better ideas. Any ideas?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I rarely admit private things online and in writing. These
questions have me talking more about myself than I usually do. If
you have questions it'd be easier to talk about them face to face.
However, I will say that blatant attempts at manipulation using
guilt tactics is an immediate turn- off. I never dignify such
practices with a response. I try to answer my messages. Sometimes I
fail at this.
