Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I"m a down to earth and easy-going kind of woman and I really try
not to take life so seriously. . I love to laugh and believe you
can find humor in any situation. I still believe in romance (trying
to at least well maybe not) and I have been searching for it. It
seems to have gone extinct. It has to be out
there......somewhere.... I need to keep the faith . But I must say
my faith is fading , fading ......I am trying to stay optimistic
but in this crazy "dating" world ....if you could even call it a
"dating" world" it is hard stay optimistic.
Well enough about that, I love baseball, especially going to a
WHITE SOX game. Grew up a WHITE SOX fan. My dad took us to games
often. That is one of my favorite memories from growing up. Another
great memory is seeing the pride and joy on my dad"s face when they
won the World Series. I still go to SOX games with my dad. I also
love going out for a movie, some bowling ( haven"t done that in a
while), perhaps a walk along the lake or in the park,or even
downtown... checking our beautiful city"s sites or one of the many
festivals that goes on around the city( I love a great street fest)
or some dancing, not that great of a dancer but still love to go
anyways. I am always up to try new things. But a nice evening at
home relaxing on the sofa, watching movies is just fine also. Or
just sitting and having a drink or a cup of coffee with great
conversation.*** And I apparently I have to add this to my
profile....No I am not looking for a younger guy to have "fun" with
until I find my prince charming.***
Gardening is one of my creative outlets. In early spring I love to
take a couple(or a bunch) of planters and create something colorful
and beautiful. this past summer I planted a variety of hot peppers
again, mmmmm love hot peppers. I planted thai peppers, chili
peppers, cherry peppers, Habanero, jalapenos. This year I planted
Scotch Bonnet peppers....they are suppose to be really HOT!!!! .
And I also like to cook, sometimes I can whip up something awesome
but I can also sometimes mess it up....lol.I usually toss it out
and laugh it off. I think cooking together is very sexy. The 2 of
us creating a meal we both can enjoy. I am always looking out for
new and interesting recipes to try out.I need some new recipes for
all those hot peppers I planted. Maybe I can cook an awesome meal
for you. I recently acquired a great recipe for Alla Vodka Penne,
absolutely awesome, especially with a glass of wine.
I am somewhat health conscious and workout 3-5 times a week . My
workout is very important to me. I lost 100 plus pounds and do not
ever want to find it again!!! I try to incorporate a workout in
everything I do, including housework. I like the feeling of a great
sweat and knowing I did something healthy for myself.
I would love to find a man who adores me, I hope that doesn't sound
odd but I would love to know that the man I am with wants me,
adores me and thinks about me. I have never felt that before at
least not genuinely. I am very loving, affectionate and loyal and
would love to find similar qualities in a man. I love to take care
of a man as long as he takes care of me the same
way.....emotionally, spiritually......and physically.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I am working on moving out of my apartment into a house.
I am excited for this new chapter in my life. I have adjusted to
living a single life and dating (by now I am use to it) . I must
say it has been quite interesting to say the least. Its a new
experience for me, some good and some bad, and I"ve come realize
its not easy.......its rough out here. It"s like a poker game,
everyone is wearing their poker face. And you have to either fold
or call their bluff and I am a lousy card player so I am having
issues. I just can't read men. Well anyways my goal is to find
someone to get me off this site....no offense Okcupid.
Also looking for a career change. I have always been in retail....I
do enjoy working with the public but would like to try a different
format. I"m going to take a chance and try to tend bar, if only
someone will give me a chance. I went to bartending school just for
the fun of it but I think I would enjoy doing it for a living. I
always have been told I make kick-ass cocktails so why not?? I also
believe I have the personality for it. I have been perfecting my
Martinis....my latest hit Iced Strawberry Shortcake Martini.* I am
always looking for and trying new cocktail recipes. Job update*
After being unemployed for about a year and a half I got a new job.
Not bartending but doing floral design . I had a job years ago in a
floral shop. Now I am doing it again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I think I am good at my job......no matter where I am working, I
know how to motivate my crew and get them moving. A little humor
and a lot of appreciation goes a long way. One of my jobs was a
florist, I loved that job.It involved creativity which I love. I
got that job and had no experience making floral arrangements but
left with so much knowledge and great experiences.) I also am very
good at mixing up cocktails (which also can include creativity) and
went to bartending school to perfect that fine art of mixology
.Cooking is also something I like to think I am good at.I have
re-discovered my love for it within the past months. I have been
really trying out new recipes...with great success. I am also good
at conversation....I love to discuss life issues and always try see
different points of views. But I don"t really like to talk politics
...too boring. Especially these days.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Some people say they notice my eyes....they"re hazel. Some say my
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love mystery novels. I enjoy reading books by John Sandford, his
"prey" series is very riveting. I haven't read a good book in
awhile. I love comedies...anything with will ferrell, he is
hilarious, also like thrillers and horror movies. Shows , I lean
towards the 48 hour mystery types anything on ID TV, love that
station. But my all time favorite sit-com of all time is Seinfeld,
HILARIOUS!! . I like all types of music, jazz(love Ella Fitzgerald
& dinah washington), r&b, pop but tend to like the older
music (80"s) more than the modern but I have to say Maroon 5 is
very good (love Adam Levine, SEXY!!!) , John Mayer, The Bee
Gees,....just about anything really except rap....sorry. Sara
Bareilles is another artist who I really like. She is one of those
overlooked artist. I am going to see her in concert in October. It
was a great show!!!) But everyone who knows me knows that I love
GEORGE MICHAEL, I find his voice amazing. I went to see him in
concert in 2008 at the United Center. A GREAT show and a dream come
true. In the food category I tend to love pasta dishes, especially
Italian but I also love mexican, Thai, chinese food. Really I love
all types of food especially hot and spicy.......the hotter and
spicier the better (atomic wings from wingstop, HOT!!!!! YUMMY!!)
but I will try just about any type of food.......almost.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, Friends, my cocktail shaker and jigger, my morning coffee
(I NEED IT) , ROMANCE and my WHITE SOX..... love and affection....I
know that is more than 6 . And not necessarily in that order.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future and what it has in store.....its has endless
possibilities. I"m here looking to find someone to spend it with.
Maybe someone to grow old--er with. Also wondering if there are any
guys left out there who actually want to date or at least court a
woman these days or be in a relationship......not just have a "good
time". Don"t get me wrong I do like to have fun. I think the
process of dating should be fun. Also been wondering why it is so
difficult to establish a date or a meeting sometimes, especially if
we seem to get along so well .....YES I have been spending more
time thinking about dating than actually dating...unfortunately.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at home or work. I would like to break out of that rut and
start enjoying life...have fun. Have new experiences.....meet new
people. Would like to find someone to spend a Friday or Saturday
night with . Well maybe even a week night......why not? Hopefully
maybe a date soon
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Private!?!? Let's get to know each other first! :) I actually
haven't been out on a date in over a year......I guess it's not
really private but it's a fact lol.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you are seriously looking to date...you would like to interact
with someone who is genuine and fun. If your are a decent, HONEST
and kind man. If courting a woman is your idea of dating. If you
actually want a relationship. If you like to laugh, talk and/or go
and check out what this city has to offer. Go to a street fest and
people watch. And also if we go out and you find we do not mesh
well, have the balls to say so........just saying.
Who are you looking for?
