My self-summary
My name is Jennifer. It can be Jenn, Gwen, Dave, Gin...but never Jenny. I am Wiccan, pretty intelligent, and have been told I'm pretty fun to be around. You'll never have to worry about honesty with me, I've learned that the only way to go is tell it like it is, even if that means what you have to say won't be so well-received. I like NKOTB, and I am completely unashamed about that.

I can be moody and quiet, loud and obnoxious, or even sweet and (seemingly)innocent. There's really not a whole lot I wouldn't try at least once, I know a lot of folks say that, but I really MEAN it! ;) I enjoy bowling, board games, video games, card games, football, pool, darts, camping, hiking...and lots of other things!

If you like cherries, we surely need to talk. I don't, and SOMEBODY has to take my cherry. Off my ice cream, that is...

I am quirky, giddy, and impulsive
What I’m doing with my life
I have a car, a fantastic roommate, and a cat. I enjoy spending time with my friends and their kids (since I don't have any of my own). I don't have plans to go to school or travel extensively, although if I suddenly come into loads of cash, either is possible!

*update* I love disc golf. I am terrible, but addicted. I would go every day and at least play nine holes if I could. You'd think I'd get better... ;) wanna play?
I’m really good at
Most of the things I enjoy, I enjoy because I like to do them, not necessarily because I'm GOOD at them. I like to write, and have been told the things I write are pretty entertaining. You can decide if I'm good at other things...I will leave that open for your opinion. I have since been enlightened that I am a pretty good story teller, depending on the subject...I am really good at putting actions in to a sense, and I am also a decent listener (if what you have to say interests me, I won't lie...) It has recently been brought to my attention that I'm really good at taking an absolutely terrible situation and accentuating positives. If I like ya well enough and you ask me, I might care to explain... ;)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have incredible eyes...I think, a pretty good smile, lots of freckles, and pretty nice legs. I would guess that those are physically what is noticed first. I also am pretty open about myself, you can ask almost anything and I will just might not like the answer! ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read pretty much everything, watch any kind of movies, love all kinds of music, and will try almost any new food. As far as favorites, I like a book that makes you think a little, or at least draws you in. In the interest of helping you out (and beefing this up a bit) I'll list a few of my favorite authors:

Laurell K. Hamilton
Rebecca Brandewyne
Anne Rice
Clive Barker
Iris Johansen
Chuck Palahniuk

A movie has to capture my heart with its story to be on my favorites list, but that doesn't mean just sappy chick-flicks are on that list. Again, to beef this up:

Ever After: A Cinderella Story
The Goonies
Indiana Jones (all 4)
Star Wars (all 6)
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

If the music has a good beat or good lyrics, you can bet I'll like it, but my favorite group is (always has been, always will be) New Kids on the Block.
I also like: (in NO particular order...and I'm sure there's stuff I'm forgetting)

The Eagles, Rhianna, Rascal Flatts, Pink, Melissa Etheridge, No Doubt/Gwen Stefani, Dixie Chicks, Ne-Yo, SHEDaisy, Savage Garden, Dolly Parton, Harry Connick, Jr., Cher, Madonna (mostly the earlier stuff)

I think my favorite food is Italian, pasta especially, but I really like Mexican as well...and I like to cook when I can, so whatever I can dream up, really! :)
Six things I could never do without
I would be hard pressed to live without my cell, a good book, internet access at least weekly, bottled or filtered water, writing utensils (pen/pencil and paper), and chapstick. :)

*In reading this for the millionth time (okay, it's only been like seventeen, but I have a flair for the dramatic sometimes...) I realized that I didn't necessarily need writing utensils or weekly internet access...unless they were related (ie: laptop or desktop instead along with the internet access, or just the pen and paper) While I do appreciate the way a pen feels on paper some days, if pressed, I suppose I could survive with a keyboard instead...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The things I think about most often are either very near and dear and personal, or very confusing my mind is and the way it works, even to me. Lord and Lady help anyone else who's trying to figure me out, it's practically impossible! ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
If I'm not working or working out, I am probably hanging with my friend for life DBosler. We've both found ourselves single pretty recently and are (not) looking for the right men. For now, we're happy to keep each other company and keep each other centered.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I cannot abide any creature that doesn't either have a face, feet, or both. Make your own deductions as to what kind of pet I'd never have from those criteria. :)
You should message me if
You won't spend valuable time patronizing me.
You are someone who understands the importance of the little things.
You find me attractive and you're not afraid to tell me AND show me.
You are pretty socially tolerant.
You can maintain intelligent conversation (and sometimes not so intelligent conversation.)
You have a job, a car, and you're not living with someone due to your own irresponsible nature.
You understand that we WON'T be having sex when we first meet, and you won't pressure me to do so.
You understand what it means to be passionate about something.
You've picked up a book in the last week for pleasure. And you do so on a regular basis without being coerced.
You have informed opinions on a wide range of things.
You are open to the idea of my religious beliefs and practices.
You can accept and tolerate my friends. I love them, they are my life and I will NOT change that.
You are ready to move on into a new relationship. If this is strictly a for friends kind of thing, great. But let me know up front that you're still hung up on your ex. Be honest with yourself about that, please!
You understand that not everything is about you.
You're still awake after reading everything about me. I can be very chatty...and am when trying to catch someone's attention...have I done that?
The two of us
