I am a fun girl. I am a realist and I am down for anything (note: this is not a challenge! If you want to see this in action, you should try and get to know me.). Yeah, that's right, I said anything. I love life and I love to laugh and have fun.
I have what most people would call a unique sense of humor. I can find the humor in just about anything. I don't see the point in being serious all the time. Don't worry, I do know how to be serious; I just choose not to be most of the time. Life is all about the fun, isn't it?
I'm pretty shy, though most people that actually know me find it hard to believe. I think I described it accurately to a fellow OKCupid member the other day as an "introverted extrovert". If you understand that, then we should talk! Once I warm up to someone, I am completely at ease. I'm not very good at making the first move, though, so feel free to start something up with me.
I've been on this site for a while now, and the most common question I'm asked is "What are you looking for?" I always have the same answer; "I am looking for whatever I find". I can't be more specific, but I'm sure I'll know it when I find it. I'm willing to be alone rather than settle for something less than I want or deserve.
I will talk to anyone local (sorry, not looking for long distance pen pals) who seriously starts up a conversation with me, but that doesn't necessarily mean I am interested in anything more than a conversation. I really do enjoy talking to new people on here. Passes the time much more entertainingly. If you say something that sparks my interest, I respond. Pretty much if you say something more than "Ur hott!" or "Hi, how are you?" (if you insist on sending boring messages, be prepared to defend your reason for sending it), I'll have something to say back. The best messages for me are the ones that make it appear that the sender actually read some of my profile. And as long as we're talking about emails, contrary to popular belief, I don't get hundreds of emails a day. Some days, I don't get any. So if I get one from you, I will definitely read it. Say something interesting and I'll definitely respond. Simple as that...
You might have noticed that I'm seeing someone. Please don't let that stop you from messaging me. He obviously knows I'm on here. We sometimes do our own thing and we sometimes do each other's thing. Ladies, we'd love to help you do your thing. So if you have questions, please feel free to ask!
I am fucking hilarious, awesome, and beertastic
I want to do something that matters. "
And now for all the irrelevant stuff...
I am finally at a place where I don't feel like I'm aimlessly drifting. I have a good job that I like to think will turn into a career. And I'm good at my job and I take pride in the work I do. I work at a bank, but not in a branch. I deal with mortgages, but no, I can't help you get one. Except for all the silly regulatory tests we have to take regularly, it's a pretty decent gig. My office is moving to Duluth in July 2017. If you know the best lunch spots, hit me up!
My non working time is spent with the best group of friends a girl could hope for. But since most of them are otherwise attached, it's hard for them to get out and do stuff with me as often as I like. Now you see why I'm here.
I'm also good at making people laugh. I'll do just about anything for a laugh. I don't tell jokes, but I have a pretty quick wit. I was also raised in a very sarcastic family, so of course that's part of my humor, too.
And being brutally honest. I don't really see the point in lying. "If it can be destroyed by the truth, it deserves to be destroyed by the truth."
And making mixed tapes/cds. It's a dying art in the world of mp3 players, but I can put some of the most random music together and totally make it flow.
I recently discovered I'm pretty handy with an angle grinder.
I think that's it. Or at least all I'll admit to on here...
And that I'm not wearing pants. Ever. I stopped wearing them in March '11 and I haven't looked back. It's all skirts and dresses for me from here on out and it's SO liberating. My collection of tights and very long, very funky socks is pretty impressive to keep me warm in the colder months. So I guess the short answer is my totally rockin' legs.
Realistically, though, it's probably my boobs...
As of 1/30/12, I guess if I'm not wearing long sleeves, the big tattoo on my right arm might get noticed first. Or possibly immediately after my boobs.
Since Labor Day 2016, I'd have to say it's my hair. Before my boobs, even. It's really bright...
As far as movies go, I'll watch almost anything. Not a big fan of kung fu, but I don't mind if someone else likes it. I'm not just into girly movies, either. I love me a good action flick. If there is a hitman as a primary character, you can be sure I'll enjoy it. I have a weakness for hitman flicks. The Professional is my all-time favorite hitman movie, and one of my top 5 favorite movies in general. My screen name is from a hitman movie, too. Do you know which one?
I probably watch too much TV, but I can't seem to help myself, especially since I got Netflix. Weeds is probably my favorite show. I would go full on gay for Mary Louise Parker. That woman is the sexiest thing on TV, hands down. I've also recently discovered Doctor Who. Not the old stuff, but the new one. And as a result of that, I have also found Torchwood. Love me some Captain Jack. And just to finish off the paragraph, here is a list of other shows I like that I won't gush about: True Blood, Bones, House, Californication, Nurse Jackie, In Plain Sight (RIP), Justified and so many more. See I said I like TV too much...
My music taste is somewhat eclectic. I keep an open mind about everything. Honestly, most people have never heard of the bands I listen to. For some odd reason, my music collection seems to be laden with bands whose names start with The. It would be interesting to know if there are really that many bands who put "the" in front of their name or if I just have a special gift for finding them. Two of my favorites right now are The Head and the Heart (check out "Down in the Valley") and The Bird and the Bee ("Fucking Boyfriend" is the best!). I have really strange stations on Pandora and that's how I find most of my new music. That and every April, Esquire Magazine puts out a list of "50 songs every man should be listening to". Not all 50 songs are great, but a good 3/4 of them rock. Hard. In 2012, it led me to Ben Howard, an awesome artist that I just can't get enough of. His album, Every Kingdom, is one of the best I've heard in a long time.
Food... I have a love/hate relationship with food. I have simple tastes, but I have started branching out. I am a decent cook. I prefer trying new recipes when I do cook rather than sticking with the old recipes I'm comfortable with. So I've learned I make a mean Lamb Vindaloo and Moussaka. Not together, though. That would be weird. I'm learning to love all things spicy. I never in a million years thought is be able to enjoy the real spice of life. For the first time in my life, I have 2 different types of hot sauce in my house and they aren't just for cooking! If you've never had habanero tequila (tequila counts as food, right?), you don't know what you're missing! It makes some seriously good margaritas :)
But outside of that unique set of circumstances, in no particular order :
Someone to laugh with/at me
that other thing...
And now for six things I can do without
Nuts (especially peanuts. I hate them the worst)
Porn (You can have it, but I never much got into it)
You think going to the firing range would make an excellent date.
Or if you can recommend a good beer. Preferably an IPA...
Or if you have superb taste in music. I know that sort of thing is pretty subjective, but if you think you do, you probably do. So recommend something to me!
You like a challenge.
Most importantly, these things:
You understand that u, r, and y are letters and not words.
You should message me if you are old enough to drink legally and have been for AT LEAST 5 years (Though if I'm being really honest it's more like 10). Otherwise, I can PROMISE you that I'm not interested. Really. I'm NOT joking.
You have something more interesting to say than "Hi"
You aren't going to ask to meet me right away. I've met lots of people from here, but only after getting to know them a little first.
You don't refer to women as females.
You don't want me to Skype or trade sexy pictures with you.
You DON'T want to tell me about the size of your genitals (seriously, why do I keep getting messages about this? I promise I'm not impressed!)
You think starting out with a superficial compliment is a terrible way to start a conversation. I know what i look like. I'd rather get a message about something I wrote than my out-of-date pictures.
