If you are looking for a girl who isn't interested in playing games
then you are in the right place. I would say that some of my best
qualities are my ability to be straight-forward and to always stand
behind people that I care for.
I am passionate about education and music. I am interested in life
long learning and cultural enrichment. I believe that dreams exist
because they are meant to be fulfilled and that one should always
be true to oneself.
What I’m doing with my life
I am an opera singer and and a college professor. I teach a voice class and private vocal lessons. This past spring I went back to school to complete prerequisites before starting an MA in Speech Language Pathology in Fall 2015. I am big into yoga and belly dancing (even getting into performing it a little this summer), both are a lot of fun. Also, last summer i got into hiking in the CVNP and want to do it as much as I can this summer as well as maybe some weekend hiking trips not in the general area. Last year I went to Italy, which I don't know if I'll top this summer, but I still want to go to a beach or two and use my passport if I can!
I’m really good at
singing. I am constantly growing as a teacher (my students have
taught me so much and hopefully vice versa). I have been told I am
great at back massages as well (friends have suggested that I get
my massotherapy license).
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess physically it would be my eyes and smile or so I have been
told. Conversationally: people notice I am a talker.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love most types of music (except heavy metal, hard-core rap, or country). I read a lot, like going to movies, and I tend to have at least some knowledge of many subjects (I was the kid that actually liked school). I like to go to museums, metroparks, zoo and concerts. I like to go to dance clubs sometimes(esp. shooters in the summer), but I am just as comfortable at a dive bar or just chilling at home.
Books: Anything that catches my fancy. Always liked paranormal, mystery, and horror books.
Movies: I like just about anything. Though I hate a gory movie (scary yes gory no). I even like the occasional guy action flick.
Shows: depends on whether you mean tv or stage. Love anything BBC; I am a brit sci-fi fan...Doctor Who, Torchwood, etc. I also love walking dead, game of thrones, and orange is the new black. Also, I'm an anime fan though I feel a bit behind on some of the newer shows. I tend to like most stage theatre shows.
Music: classical, opera, pop, dance, rock (too many favs to list...have over 10,000 mp3s on my ipod).
Food favs: sushi, italian, mexican, slavic...I am usually up to try most anything and can usually find something I like at most restaurants.
The six things I could never do without
Family (Mom and Bro)
My best friends (which I consider family)
Reading (kindle comes in handy)
Learning new things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
life in general and dating/love. I also spend a lot of time
thinking about how culture and media affects the arts. I also think
about a lot of vocal science things a lot (hence my decision to go
into slp). I also think about ways to become a more effective
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out with friends or sometimes just home relaxing and
catching up on the dvr after a busy week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a bit of a nerdy girl (see the fact I love brit sci-fi, etc).
You should message me if
you are someone who is ambitious, passionate, and intelligent. I am
looking for someone who has similar cultural interests and
ideologies. I want a trustworthy, honest, funny (love a sarcastic
guy), well-rounded and down to earth man. And in return you would
get the same qualities from me. I am looking for someone who is
looking for a relationship!
Please see the above section about some of the basics of what I am
looking for (these are important to me so more than likely if you
email me and you are blatantly outside of these parameters I
probably will not reply). I also know what I am looking for when I
see it so if I do not reply to you please do not be offended.
Especially if some of your photos are selfies where you are half
naked in your bathroom mirror or bed....I will not reply.
Also, if I see someone I like in the matches I send a quick message
to them. I know this goes against the social norm and men are
hunters by nature who want to pursue, but online is different than
meeting out and about...there is not the normal body language cues
I can send to someone like I can in person. My quick hello is my
equivalent to making eye contact and smiling out at the bar or
brushing up against someone at the bar while ordering a drink just
to start up a conversation.
