My self-summary
Hey there. My name is Mandy. I haven't been on a dating site in a while. Last time was all about guys who want hook ups. Hopefully over time things have changed or at least the filtering has. I am here looking for a relationship.

Before you continue reading....I have every intention of fostering-to-adopt a 6 year old child before next Summer (2016). I m doing it with or without a partner. It's something I need to do. If you are not OK with that I understand.

I pretty much have my life together. I am a Special Needs Educator who deals in crisis management with kids who have behavior issues. It can get pretty intense. I deal with chairs flying and books being chucked across the room. However, I take pride in being one of the favorites of my school. I have a house in Forest Park and a Mastiff Lab named Paco. He is 100+ lbs so he is a big boy.

Past relationships have let me to a final conclusion...I want my equal. Someone who puts in the same amount of effort as me. I am not a sugar mama nor and I gold digger. I have my own. I am just wanting to share my life with someone special who I don't have to babysit or compete with. I give time, you give time.

I love laughing and being silly. All my students in the school know I am the goofy one, but always willing to listen.

I have been through a transition in my life. I had medical issues last year that caused me to be on a weight gaining medicine, but I'm a fighter. I am losing it more and more. I hit the gym 5x a week, see a trainer, and take A LOT of long walks by the lake ( no less than 6 miles at a time. Most was 10). I walk from Belmont Harbor at the Lake to Navy Pier and back.

PS. I have been in-between light hair and dark recently. These are recent pucs.

Also, travelling to see you is OK at first but it becomes tiresome and expensive. I am looking for someone who is at MOST a half hour away.

P.S. I despise ghetto writers. Ex. gurl u b cool ass hell. We finna go 2 da ...bla bla bla

I am a bigger woman so if you are not into that then hey....good luck searching. Too many men are into skinny girls. So that we are clear: I am a bigger woman and I actually have meat on my bones. I am a dedicated woman as you can see. I am not looking for attention, but merely to get healthy again. Maybe you can be my gym buddy..... If you're reading this then you already are intrigued.

You should message me if
You love to laugh and make me laugh. I am a larger woman so if you are OK with that then hit me up. I am not a stick by any means. Also, ONLY contact me if you are interested in dating and potentially a relationship. I am NOT on here for friends with benefits. I don't trade nude pics. I don't dirty chat (right away that is). I don't want to hear about your cock. I think you get the point. At least I hope you do. I am only interested in potentially dating. Respect that please. I am a lady and want to be treated as such.
