Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not on this site for hookups or cyber sex. Move on if that is
why you are here. I am looking for a relationship, to actually
develop something meaningful.
I enjoy spending time with others but need downtime alone. I expend
a lot of energy to be social whether for a night out dancing,
playing games, going to a SCA tournament, or watching movies with
friends. Going to shows and events is also a lot of fun. I do not
trust people easily and it is even harder for my trust to be
rebuilt once broken.
I am looking for someone I can trust and believe in. Someone who
has similar interests and takes pleasure in a variety of
activities. Someone who will encourage me to go out and try new
things and will try out what I enjoy too. I am worth the effort to
know and love, and I expect someone who is also worth the effort I
am willing to put forth.
For many hobbies, I am involved with the Society of Creative
Anachronism (SCA). I am loving it! Medieval life, arts, crafts,
fighting, and more are at my disposal. I also enjoy RPG and
tabletop games. I enjoy physical activity but am not athletic.
Dancing is fun; I can do a passable two-step but my industrial
dance moves are lacking some punch. I don't own a bicycle and I
rarely go hiking. I enjoy bicycling and hiking but without proper
equipment and the right people along, I simply pass on both.
Dating is an adventure and I have been in monogamous relationships
with both women and men - they are equally confusing.
I thought about this for several months but feel strongly that it
needs to be said:
While my head and heart know size should not be a big deal, I find
I am generally attracted to people who carry their weight well.
Being 50 or so pounds overweight can still be extremely attractive
to me. I keep this in mind when someone is not attracted to me
physically; everybody has different preferences and I'm am neither
a very fit person nor a very curvy person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach high school English.
I have a senior cat that requires a little extra care and
attention. This means I can't just go away without planning. Yes,
he is like my child - a pet is a lifetime commitment.
I took in a roommate this summer so I have been adjusting to
sharing my space. It is very different than living with a partner.
I’m really good at

I teach. What's your superpower?
Others will say I am organized and a problem solver. They might
mention I have a calming influence in stressful situations.

I read a lot of fantasy and also enjoy contemporary supernatural
tales when I'm not reading about hobby topics.
I enjoy a range of movies from action (Die Hard) to teen (Harry
Potter). I only have difficulty with gore and any horror that I can
imagine happening in real life.
Television: Grimm, Person of Interest, and Scorpion, Agents of
S.H.I.E.L.D. I only get local channels through my antenna so I
generally watch on Netflix.
Soft rock, classic rock, and folk music are my go-to choices.
I love chocolate, pizza, and spaghetti but I have been trying to
remove gluten from my diet. This is not an easy endeavor. Mexican
food and jalapenos are a requirement in life!
