My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First: Yes my username is horrible, it was an error (long story) and now I can't fix it, damn you OKC! And no, my name is not Patty.

Some things about me:
1. My life has recently shifted direction, and I'm looking to incorporate more spontaneity and adventure into it.
2. I'm sarcastic and quote a lot of movies.
3. I'm very honest, and have been described as blunt and/or direct.
4. Family is important to me.
5. I was a college athlete and am generally a competitive person. (I once cheated at a Monopoly game to ensure that I didn't lose to two five yr olds)
6. I love to dance.
7. I'm a Red Sox, Bruins, and Pats fan. I don't think it gets much better than Sunday night football with good food, friends and beer.
8. Although I was born and raised in NE, I've only been skiing once, and I was a natural- true story. I'd love to go again with someone who knows what they are doing.
9. I like the idea of cooking and enjoy cooking for others, although I would not call myself a cook. It would be nice to have someone around who could teach me a few things!
10. I hate shopping.

I'm looking for someone motivated and intelligent with a great sense of humor. I'm tired of games and one night stands and am looking for a man who is quietly confident, who likes to be active, someone who would enjoy staying in together as much as going out.

Exercise is part of my daily routine and a huge stress relief. I lift and do cardio and being strong and fit is important to me. Crossfit is definitely something I could get into, but its so damn expensive! So bonus points if you also like to workout or are active.

If we connect lets meet up and do something! I'm not too interested in emailing back and forth, you will never know if you have chemistry until you meet. So lets go do something fun, explore the city, go for a walk, enjoy a beer together...extra points if going to the paint bar sounds appealing.

When did the dating world become a jungle?

Gender roles and how deeply embedded they are in society. The contradictory messages that society throws at women. "Be sexy and look good...but don't be sexual." Restricting access to BC and sex education but shaming young women who get pregnant - I'll stop there.

How so many of the world's conflicts stem from organized religion.

The fascinating role of demographics in politics.

Why teachers don't get the respect or recognition they deserve, and how that general lack of respect is so damaging to our education system.

How to enjoy a social life on a budget.

Why men think anything along the lines of: "Hey baby nice rack, drinks?" will land them a first date. NEWSFLASH: This doesn't make me want to have drinks with you, it makes me think you have an STD.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Having Friday nights free is a new thing to I'll have to get back to this one.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Humm well I don't know about private but I have an embarrassing story I am willing to share...
I once drugged myself with an ambien (by accident) and passed out in the middle of teaching a 5th grade history class. I like to think of this moment as the climax of my professional career thus far.
