My self-summary
If you read anything in this profile... Read "The most private thing I'm willing to admit"

My name is Margaret and I'm a total nerd (but not in the having a really high IQ or being really good at science sense). I'm a bit of a health nut, I rarely eat fast food and try to make all my meals at home. My favorite form of exercise is jogging or walking. I love the outdoors. Only thing I won't do is scuba diving or anything involving extreme heights.

I absolutely love to dance, in any way, shape or form. I'm also a movie fanatic. I like mostly anything except horror. Film is probably my biggest passion. I try to write in my spare time but work, school and being a single mom keep me pretty busy. I also love music. I listen to just about anything, but mostly oldies. My favorite band is the Beatles.

I'm rather shy when it comes to getting to know someone, but I'm super friendly and I like to meet new people. It just takes time for me to open up. Once I get to know someone, though, I never shut up. I do like a good conversation. Having someone who I can just talk to, and about things I'm interested in. I'd really like someone who shares my interests so we have something to actually talk about.

The only real deal breaker for me are smokers; cigarette smoke makes me sick (yes, in the literal sense - it gives me a headache and makes me feel nauseous) and I don't want my son around it.

TO ALL THE COUPLES LOOKING FOR A 3-WAY: I am not interested. Just because I'm bisexual does not mean I'm interested in doing two people at one time (Sorry I have to do this but I'm getting sick of the couples sending me messages about this).
What I’m doing with my life
Single mom, working part time at McDonalds and going to school full time for Secondary English Education (high school English teacher).
I’m really good at
Dancing: I was in dance class for eight years and I love it. Doesn't matter what kind of dancing it is, I just love to move my body to the beat.

Writing: I started writing (for fun) in eighth grade. I mostly like to write my novel or screen play ideas, but I do some poetry and fan fiction writing as well. My friends all seem to like what I write so I must be pretty good at it :0)

Smiling/Laughing: It's pretty easy to make me laugh, and I usually don't hold back. Smiles are so contagious. When I see someone else smile (even if it's someone in a movie or picture) I just can't help but smile and feel better :0)
The first things people usually notice about me
I've been told I have pretty eyes and a pretty smile. It's usually one or the other.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a HORRIBLY nerdy person. I like dressing up in costumes, my favorite holiday is Halloween and I will drive you INSANE with my Star Wars knowledge (FYI messaging me about how you could best me in Star Wars trivia is not a good pick up line, you're just insulting my intelligence).

I have a weird obsession with Abraham Lincoln, and know more about him than most people will ever learn in their entire lifetime.

I know way more Beatles trivia then is considered normal (Paul is my favorite).

Robin/Nightwing and Wolverine are my favorite superhero’s, but I don't really like Batman.

I still watch the Power Rangers and I follow all the actors on Facebook and Twitter.

Most Disney movies make me cry, my stop 5 are Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, Mary Poppins, Mulan and Aladdin (in that order).

I'm very good at picking out plot holes in movies and TV shows. Some people might consider it nit-picking, but if a character does something stupid, or a plot line doesn't make sense, then I WILL comment on it.

I'm not religious in any way, I have friends and family who are, but I know from past experience that different views on this just do NOT work in a relationship.

I talk to myself all the time. Basically, a thought will form in my head and I will respond to it out loud. I also replay conversations that I just had over in my head, examining what I said and how I said it. I think I'm just overly analytical.
You should message me if
You actually made it all the way to the end of this profile, lol.

Honestly, though, you should only message me if you actually want to MEET someone and intend to ask me out at some point. If you decide after a few days you don't want to meet me then okay, fine, I can take a hint. I'm not an idiot. I don't hound people with daily messages if they've stopped responding. But please, please, please, do NOT string me along, making me wait for you to finally ask for a date. Because if you don't, I will.

I just really want to find someone who's reliable, has some kind of job or career going for them, and can at least relate to my interests. All those things I'm into are weirdly a big part of my life, and if you cannot relate to that on any level then I really don't think it would work between us.
The two of us
