Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First---I realize many guys won't bother to read this. So, for
those: I am NOT on this site looking for a hookup. Sorry to
Second--I receive upwards of 8-15 msgs/day on here and I don't take
the time to make ths site a part time job. So, please be patient
with me in replying. Many times it's 24-48 hrs until I reply to
everyone, and I find some have already blocked me. I try hard to be
a decent person and reply to most (who send me more than a two word
msg)...even if in regret.
Well, now that I got that out of the way, on to my profile....
After a long hiatus, I decided to try this site again. Here goes
it..... I'm on this site hoping to meet a great guy that I can
someday call my boyfriend. I am ready and open to meeting that
special guy. I'm divorced and learned a lot from it. I spent 14
years with the wrong guy (Yikes, I know!). This translates to me
being picky and not willing to settle...and often asked, "How is a
girl like you single?". I'm a fun, confident, drama-free,
tell-it-like-it-is girl, who tends to think more like a guy than a
quintessential "chick" (eye rolls when I encounter those).
Socializing with friends is something I enjoy. Definitely not a
loner. But, there is a part of me that yearns for someone close to
enjoy spending one on one time.
Working out is an important part of my life. For those that it's
not a priority, I completely get how you can't fathom how someone
could enjoy intentionally torturing themselves. I once thought
that, too. Well, I ask you this: Do you enjoy really good
sex...where you're working up a sweat? You know that amazing,
relaxed, feeling afterwards? That's working out! It's
sweat-producing physical activity that creates that incredible
endorphin rush feeling in the end! It becomes addicting. Haha! Hey,
on the topic...listen to some of the sounds people make at the
gym.... Now you are gonna think of me every time you hear a moan or
So, why bring this up? A guy doesn't have to be a gym rat. But, I'm
definitely not looking for a couch potato who spends hours in front
of the TV or playing video games. He doesn't have to be PlayGirl
material (though that would be a perk ;-). What I'm definitely
interested in, is a guy who is active and takes pride in himself.
Hey, I'm not in model shape, so I don't expect my partner to be.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love hanging out with a friend(s) on any night. My couch has a
reserved vacant spot for snuggling while watching a movie, too.
Applicants welcome! As far as hobbies: I love to dance (including
playing Dance Central with my daughter and her friends) and play
piano. I'm not an expert in either, though! I have a inherited
crappy metabolism, so also try to hit the gym 3-4 days/wk.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Let's see... My parlor tricks are: I am able to sit Indian style
(or, criss-cross applesauce for the politically correct folk), with
both knees touching the floor, and bend completely over to touch my
forehead to the ground (lots of practice sitting Indian style
because I'm short and my feet don't touch the ground in most
chairs). And, I can maintain a headstand indefinitely. Despite
being short, I'm fairly strong for a chick. I'll admit to a very
slight Napoleon complex. Being short, I've felt I needed to prove
myself. Hmmm...I'm pretty good at playing foosball and I function
well on little sleep. And, if you couldn't already tell, my sense
of humor. I specialize in sarcasm and playful teasing.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height. Can't help it when you are this short!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love comedies and action adventure movies. I especially love movies
that make me laugh and are a welcome break from everyday stressful
All The Hangover movies
Hot Tub Time Machine
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Dumb & Dumber
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
You get the drift...
As far as music...my rule of thumb is I like music that makes me
want to get up and dance or sing-a-long. I have such a deep
appreciation and love for music and musical talent.
Love a capella groups (Pentatonix, Home Free). A deep bass voice
singing to me will work as foreplay!
Black Eyed Peas
Boyz II Men (they do a lot of a capella)
Zac Brown Band
Big & Rich
Pitbull (ie: dance music!!)
The list goes on...
I honestly don't watch much TV except for movies. I don't even have
cable or satellite TV (can you believe that?!). I cancelled it
years ago because I was spending lots of money to fill my DVR up
with movies and for the kids to watch endless SpongeBob episodes. I
do Netflix and Redbox for movies and a tv series here and there. I
loved The Walking Dead, LOST, Breaking Bad, Orange is the New
Black. My latest series is How I Met Your Mother.
As for food...I like and eat most everything. I love spicy foods
and love trying new foods. I'm probably the least picky eater you
will ever meet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-A gym (refer to next on the list for why)
-Sweets--Well, not without some hypnotherapy (yes, I have an
addiction) And, admittedly the main thing preventing me from that
-Fleece sheets in the fall/winter (100Xs better than
-Heat (I hate the cold!)
I left out the obvious (boring...yawn): my children, food, hot
showers, water, oxygen, soap, toothbrush, blah, blah, blah...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wondering why so many guys don't smile for their pics on here? A
genuine smile makes you so much more attractive and draws us ladies
Many times, when perusing OkC questions of a profile, I wonder why,
when I answered the same answer as him, my answer is in red? I
didn't realize the concept of how to pick his acceptable answers
was so complex. [Eye roll]
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There isn't a typical Friday night for me. I could be out with a
friend(s), or having them over, chatting over a drink or playing
games. With my kids, we play games and often watch a pg 13 movie.
Hopefully soon, I will meet someone special to be able to snuggle
under a blanket together for a special treat: watching a rated R
movie! I would love to say dancing, but I need more dancing
buddies, as I don't get to do this as often as I would like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, this isn't something "private", but something selfish (insert
devilish smile here). I guess this would be the appropriate place
to reveal, or "admit" this...
I look younger than my age and I LOVE it! I absolutely love when
someone asks how old I am. I counter with, "How old do you think I
am?" Hehe. I'm mostly told I look between 28 and 32. I still get
carded, though less and less frequently. I am secretly dreading the
day this stops.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You actually read through my profile to the bottom, and a fair
amount of answers to the questions, and still think we would be a
good match. If you are less than say...a 65-70%ish match, you
probably are wasting your time messaging me. It's obvious there are
enough values we differ on that we aren't compatible for
This profile is your resume. You wouldn't go to an interview
disheveled and unshaven. Nothing turns me off more than reading a
profile or message of interest permeated with grammatical errors.
If you can't appear to have passed 3rd grade, I'm not
Sadly, I've found I need to write this disclaimer:
Please DON'T message me if you are not over your ex. And, when I
say "over", I don't mean you still love her. I mean you haven't
moved on and she is still ruining your life. Hence, you are not
past the anger stage. I've went on enough dates where he talks
non-stop about his ex for 40+ min straight, on everything
negative...she's a bitch, ruined his life, she took this or that,
she constantly is trying to make his life miserable, etc... Someone
with so much hate, is NOT attractive nor desirable. Not to mention,
I can't help but think, "What happens when I do something to piss
him off?" Yeah..it WILL happen. Will he bitch about me incessantly
and say all sorts of negative things about me? Remember...you
originally chose to be with your ex. At one point you cared about
her, and, at the very least, liked her.
Yes, we all have baggage. We both can relate to each other from our
past. Our ex's will come up in conversation. But, I want to be with
a guy who has put the past behind him and has moved on...ready to
enjoy a new chapter in his life.
