My self-summary
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 have a friend with benefits but would not continue that if a relationship were in development - it's respectful after all.

I enjoy spending time with others but also need downtime. 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 / going to shows with friends.

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 neither a very fit person nor a very curvy person.
What I’m doing with my life
I teach high school English.
I have a senior cat that requires a little extra care and attention. 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.
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.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depending on the day, my long hair or my smile.
I look like a teacher, a librarian, or someone very religious. Students have described me as hippy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
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!
The six things I could never do without
1. Books
2. Cuddles with a pet or person
3. Friends
4. Blankets
5. Chocolate
6. Lists
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to improve by making my life and world more effective, efficient, peaceful, and secure.

How to help my students succeed and my friends be happy.

My beautiful baby nephew.
On a typical Friday night I am
Doing whatever I feel like doing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I do not trust you; even if you think I do, I don't.
You should message me if
You think we could enjoy spending time together out and about since we share interests. If you are interested in creating something real.
