One of the most important things to me when it comes to anyone, is honesty. I am the type of person that will be brutally honest regardless of situation. Now not to say that if a white lie will not mislead you in a serious manner "does this outfit make me look fat" type of way that a white lie is bad and not to say that I am honest in a spiteful manner. I am just honest, I tell things how they are and expect the same. If you go on a date with me you wont see some facade of what I feel you will be attracted to, you will see the genuine article and can either take that as something you find attractive and that you like what you see or leave it. I am who I am and the traits that I feel define me are non negotiable. That being said I am always working to improve myself as a person and am unafraid of criticism if presented in the right manner.
I give 110% to everything I do and have worked very hard to improve myself over the years and am still working. You never can be too perfect although perfection is just an opinion.
Also, I feel the need to say, I wish I could find someone who has a belief not a dedicated religion. Religious people don't bother me whatsoever I just feel that if we are in a relationship that you either need to be accepting and mellow about religion or share similar beliefs to mine as I have found that people who are utterly dedicated to other religions don't usually get along well with me in a relationship.
Also it is to be noted, I am a complete and total workaholic. I try and escape work when I can at the end of the day but I love helping people so its hard for me to not work outside of my work day. Now this is not to say that I can't relax and have fun, its just that working to pay the bills is my top priority. No worries though because I'm perfectly capable of having fun whether it be watching a good movie or a game of laser tag.
I'm helping my best friend to get her life started and gain independence, working full time to try and get financially stable and taking care of my 4 legged children aka my 4 cats.
I'm not a cat lady in any way except for the fact that I have cats and am devoted to animals, I would starve before they would and if that makes me crazy then so be it.
I am also working hard to gain a better position at my company so I can work wherever I want and be closer to my family, that's my 5 year goal however. I'm not jumping any state borders anytime soon.
I am also working hard to eat healthier and take care of myself more, not to say that I just stopped a diet of McDonald's and fat bags but I was recently shown how eating healthier not only makes me feel great but tastes delicious. Now this isn't a crash diet, this is just me modifying my eating to be healthy and tasty.
I also have a side hobby of searching for shards of the Shikon no Tama with some friends of mine, its fun most of the time until this crazy guy obsessed with spiders comes around and causes problems.
Just kidding :) I do love the anime/manga though!
I also love photography my camera is my second eye and I try to keep it open at all times.
I’m also very crafty I enjoy knitting and sewing and making jewelry.
I am also a devotee of the sciences seeing as I'm a veterinary assistant and just love to learn. I also love math and calculating things. I also do some singing and am fairly well known for my skill in cooking among my friends.
I also have recently dived headfirst into nail artwork and have my own blog www.atouchofpolishbyjennifer.blogspot.com that allows me to express myself artistically on a more regular basis.
I'm a jack of all trades and master of few lol. I'm also really good at reading people and situations and being dependable to take care of my friends and family.
I’m also a gamer and anime nerd. I love playing unreal tournament 3, fable 2 and 3 and halo reach and various other games on Xbox 360 and the classics on ps2 such as Dance Dance Revolution and various others and Nintendo DS games such as the various Pokémon games and a few others one favorite of mine is one that’s teaching me Japanese.
I love watching different amines such as Inuyasha and Fulmetal alchemist and MANY other and reading a large variety of manga and well written fanfictions (I am very picky)
I also adore reading. I try to read at least once a day and have a pretty good record of reading quite fast, I have read 800 pages in a day or two. I am very selective in what I read but once I start it can consume all of my focus and its tough to stop.
I also enjoy some sports: Tackle football (it involves tackling!), Fishing (not to eat just for enjoyment not that I wouldn't try eating a fish if it was really well prepared), Golf (its fun once in a while and I'm not terrible at it) I also love archery although sadly haven't shot a bow in years and I only would do such for fun, never for hunting.
I also love to spar, I'm pretty good at it if not a bit out of practice. I like to spar with and without swords or staffs and would eventually love to learn to fence.
Movies: The Mists of Avalon, Harry Potter, Memoirs of A Geisha, the Inuyasha movies, Serenity, The Star Wars saga, Marvels The Avengers and many more.
Music: I'l let Spotify show it for you My favorite Music
Food: Italian, Mexican, Chinese, Japanese, Cuban, and some Irish food and am quite a few other varieties.
I also love to bake and to cook all types of foods as its great to not only feel that sense of accomplishment when you make a delicious meal but when you get to see people enjoy it.
-My 4 cats (they're my kids and my daily motivation)
-My hair (it sounds silly but its part of my sense of pride)
-Friends (I wouldn't be here today without my friends)
-A good book (or 10 especially seeing as I ALWAYS have my Kindle with me)
My friends.. And love..How I want to find it so I can be happy with someone else instead of just me happy. Simply put I'm always thinking about at least 5 things at a time
And I hate to say things that I know would hurt someones feelings. I absolutely hate to tell someone that is interested in me that I don't feel the same way but I'd rather be honest then have them be led on. Its better to be honest and hurt someones feelings for a moment then have them never hear the truth.
There is nothing worse on a dating site is to send a message and never get an answer back. Even if it is negative its still an answer.
Also if you can accept someone who has a few quirks, is devoted to animals (I have a veterinary assistants degree) and loves my family both furry and non.
I'm not super picky but here's my standards.
Personality: make.me.laugh! If you have a sense of humor we'll get along well because I am always thinking 15 things at once and am definitely far from normal so I need someone who has a sense of humor to understand my crazy train of thought.
Have a heart and a brain and I'm NOT referring to what's in your body. But what's in your soul, be empathetic to your fellow human beings.
Have a sense of responsibility, know what you need to get done and get it done! I need a man who can take care of himself and his business.
Physical: Someone who takes care of themselves, I'm not asking for a male model or anything crazy but I do typically find myself attracted to someone that is lean and muscular or somewhere along those lines, with hair that is well kept regardless of length and someone who takes a moment out of their day to take care of themselves. I don't judge simply based on appearances but I do need to have a spark of attraction to you to have a successful relationship. I don't care if you are purple with pink polka dots if I feel a spark of physical attraction to you and your not a crazy psycho and we have similar interests then please message me.
Some might say that I am shallow to have specific things that I look for like these but I feel that you can have a winning personality but that's not going to turn me on, And face it a relationship without physical attraction is just friends...and I am not on a dating site to find new friends.
I may not be a supermodel but I take care of my appearances and feel that I present my best side that I can to the world and expect you to take the time to do the same.
One other requirement that I have is no smoking or drugs or excessive drinking, please take care of your body its the only one you have, if you have just quit smoking or are in the process then we may talk I just don't feel like kissing an ash tray and also am allergic to cigarette smoke so I don't want to be around that.
So if you don't fit then I hope you go find someone else and end up happy because everyone deserves to find someone to love and accept them for who they are. And if you do fit and find that I spark your interest then please introduce yourself don't be shy!
Also a note to anyone who choose to message me, please take time to think about what you will say! Use proper grammar and complete sentences and tell me a bit about yourself. I look forward to hearing from you!
