Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm Raven. I'm 28 years old and I'm a 3rd grade teacher in Fort
Worth. I love to laugh and I like to sing (in the car or in the
shower). I hate being cold so I love me some Texas, especially in
the Spring and the Summer. I am pretty easygoing, and I enjoy
having intelligent conversation, especially with people who are
open to others' opinions. I'm a bit of a girlie-girl, I love
wearing dresses. I'm a little leery of this whole meet someone on

a bit of a grammar nazi...I won't correct you too much, because

already halfway into my heart. :)

Austen, the Bronte Sisters, D.H. Lawrence, etc. I also like
Rosamunde Pilcher and LaVyrle Spencer, two fiction authors and The
Hunger Games Series. I'm also known to read junk celebrity gossip
magazines. :) As far as movies, I'm open to pretty much whatever,
mainly comedy or romantic comedy, or suspense or thinking
movies...definitely not scary movies though. I'm a big fan of all
kinds of music, especially country. I also love 70's and 80's
music. I'm not too picky about food, but I probably like Mexican or
seafood best. One of my guiltiest pleasures is television, I like a
lot of the popular dramas and most of the bad reality shows as
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family and friends, my cell phone (it's sad, but true),
laughter, and music. Iced Tea, coffee... and red wine. And Dallas

On a typical Friday night I am

you're looking for genuine get-to-know-you conversation and are
just as nervous and awkward as me about using this as a venue to
meet people...I just really want to meet a nice, normal guy. :) You
