My name is Terry and I have three children (all girls), ages 22,
18, and 11 even though they don't live with me I try to spend
quality time with them. I come from a large family and grew up poor
so I can appreciate the luxuries of life. I am into technolgy and
new toys but don't consider myself a geek. I am non-judgmental a
rare quality to have. Quick insert do you really read these
profiles or am I the only one: message me if you noticed this off
the subject sentence. I consider my self in tune with human nature
and therefore am pretty forgiving. I like having epiphanies or that
A-HA! moment when I see the other side of a debate or argument.
Life is what you make of it. I think what makes me unique is that I
make others feel confident and I am easy to talk to. I try to be
kind of laid back, really hard to get me ruffled.
What I’m doing with my life
Working and having a good time with everything. You only get one
chance at this life so have fun. I will not allow myself to be
surrounded by people who are downers. Not to be cliche, BUT, Carpe
Diem, YOLO and all that jazz.
I’m really good at
Timing microwave popcorn perfectly
Regular Jeopardy (not double or final)
Bad picture taking
Randomly singing out loud even if I don't know the lyrics.
Not acting put out when someone ask me to do something I really
don't want to do
Fast-forwarding the DVR through commercials
De-friending "acquaintances" on Facebook
Actually reading a profile before looking at the pictures
Pretending I like ALL sports.
Getting your pen to work when you need it.
Pronouncing the word onomatopoeia.
Holding back the giggles when I should even though I want to laugh
my butt off.
The first things people usually notice about me
Physically--my glasses and crew-cut, otherwise people feel that
they can open up to me (not that I always want that, I mean
sometimes its OK), so I guess they notice my ability to put them at

On a typical Friday night I am
I am open to any Friday night adventure. I'm not into the bar
scene, but will go see a good band. I sometimes play cards or games
with friends and other times catch up on my DVR. Friends can rely
on me to be the Designated Driver if necessary, and occasionally I
am the one to "party."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
What PRIVATE thing I am willing to admit. I killed a Chia pet
accidentally, Sad songs make me tear up (I didn't say cry), thought
Boy-George was totally cool, New Years Eve of Y2K I hid under my

fall...if you want more buy my book or click that message button!
