My self-summary
Hey there. My name is Mandy. I am here looking for a relationship.

Full disclosure: I am fostering a little 8 year old African American boy. He is my world already. He is the sweetest little gentleman. I am raising him to treat ladies with respect so I only need positive examples around him. They are expediting the process so will legally adopt him within the year. If you are not cool with this then please don't read any further.

I pretty much have my life together. I am a Special Needs Educator on the West Side of Chicago. I am amazing at my job. I take the time to know the student and build bonds. I've taken kids who were at risk for moving to other schools and now are getting good grades and awards. 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 mentor any kid I see.

I LOVE outdoors. I like camping, walking a trail, rafting, movies in the park, and I absolutely love bon fires. I built a fire pit in my yard on my own. I even bring out my flat screen outside at night to do a fire and movie night. It's amazing!!!! Date night? Hmmmmmm

I need someone who has their life together. No one is perfect. I am not a gold digger, but I need to see that there is a secure future with both of us putting in effort.

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 (prednisone.....ugghhh look that sh*tup), but I'm a fighter. I am losing it more and more. I hit the gym 3x 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.

THIS MEANS....YES! I AM FAT. I HAVE MORE WEIGHT THAN I SHOULD. BLA, BLA, BLA. I am working on it. Most people man or woman stay content. I am active and making honest efforts to fix my body. You can take me as I am or you can keep scrolling. I can only be me. So, if you don't like fat women NOW then no hard feelings, but just go onto another profile. I am loving myself and where I have come and what I am doing to do me. I can walk for 6+ miles non-stop and run miles under 12 min. I can lift 140+ lbs and I can outlast some of you haters. Again, if you don't like me for me right NOW!
So I know you actually read my profile please reference a "goldfish" in your reply or I won't reply. If you are too lazy to read about me and yet you want to holler then I don't already like your type. ;)
Let's transition together!

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.
The two of us
