My self-summary
I am a simple Indiana girl who moved to DC after falling in love with it when I came out here on vacation. And I still love it!! (Hint guys - this means I actually like to go to the museums, monuments, etc. If you are one of those people who hate DC and never want to go there - we are NOT a good match.) My friends say that I am fun, funny and friendly. I try not to take myself or my life too seriously, but I do have a serious side and let it out on appropriate occasions. I love a good time, but honestly I'm on here looking for something more. I'd like to find a man who is ready to settle down, not necessarily marriage, but at least in a serious relationship.

The guy I'm looking for would look good in jeans or a suit, but probably be found wearing jeans most of the time. He likes animals and kids, but might not have either. He likes sitting at home on the couch watching movies just as much as going out on the town until the wee hours of the morning, though he's found on the couch more often than not. He can be into sports - doing or watching - I'll be supportive, especially if it's basketball. He's affectionate - in private AND in public (holding hands, kisses). He's a basic good guy though he might look like a bad guy. He's loyal, faithful and dependable (and NO, those do not come together to mean "boring"!!). He's willing to take chances (skydiving anyone?), try new things (yoga, dance class, exotic food), open his mind (politics, religion) and he would NEVER say, "I'm too old for that." He knows how to have a conversation and has something to say other than to tell me that I have great smile, eyes, breasts, whatever.

I am boisterous, gregarious, and talkative. Consider that a warning. If you like the shy, quiet, easily-controlled girls, then move along because that is definitely not me.
What I’m doing with my life
Thanking the powers that be that I have a good job in this still questionable economy . . . publishing a book of poetry and trying to finish writing a novel.
I’m really good at
procrastinating . . . and a whole bunch of other things that I'll tell you later! ; ) (I think a lot of people are missing the joke here.)
The first things people usually notice about me
my eyes, my smile, my peirced nose (deal with it - its not going anywhere - I love it), my loud laugh (really loud), my sarcasm, my breasts - not necessarily in that order!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'll read almost anything. I'm always fond of a good trashy romance novel - they are SO fun . . . and clear the head after a deep, involved novel or biography. "Father Melonchaly's Daughter" is a long-time favorite book - it is a heavy, sad novel. Anything by Vince Flynn and David Baldacci are always exciting. I love all the political intrigue novels that take place in and around DC. I also read a lot of self-help (how to live greener, fashion on a budget, how to write a blog (as if I have time for that) etc.)

Jean-Claude Van Damme movies! I love him! Please don't tell me that he can't act - I don't care! I love him! (And actually, he did eventually learn to act!). I like action movies, rom-coms (hey, I'm a girl!), comedies (but usually not stupid boy humor like Jackass, Dunb & Dumber although a guy did introduce me to The Hangover and I LOVED IT!), super hero/comic movies (Thor, Iron Man, Superman, etc.) and movies that make you think (District 9, Saw - if you don't get how these two movies might make someone "think," then perhaps we aren't a good match).

I love all music, but I must admit that I am truly a pop fan! Britney, Lady Gaga, Madonna, Cher, Adam Lambert - just a few to scare you! And there is nothing like 80's hits - Culture Club was my fave! Also, love Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jonny Lang. Love Josh Groban (new and old styles). I am very into Indian music ("indian" as in India). These are just some of my faves. I can enjoy almost anything from Eminem to Beethoven to Tom Waites.
Six things I could never do without
Mt. Dew, sex, music, books, my cat, photos. Not necessarily in that order. Well, now that I read it again, MAYBE exactly in that order! (Update: Just as I am getting ready to update this to say I'm no longer trying to give up Mt. Dew, I think, "Man, I should really try harder to give up Mt. Dew. I guess if I have to have an addiction, Mt. Dew is the lesser of all evils.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
the meaning of life, my purpose here, the future of my Godson, the health of my parents, whether true love really exists, having enough money for everything I want to do in life, all the places I want to travel to, giving thanks for all that I have, how fast time is moving
On a typical Friday night I am
out with friends (eating, hanging, but not usually clubbing) . . . or home with a good movie and an even better pizza!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm unreasonably scared of anesthesia. Seriously, my greatest fear is that something will happen to me (car accident, etc.) and I will HAVE to go under.
You should message me if
1) you think you are funny, smart, cute or all of the above (or EVEN BETTER, other people tell you that you are funny, smart or cute)

2) for you the most important thing about a girl is NOT the size of her ass or the size of her breasts (I am a big-size girl who is smart, funny and confident. I will NOT tolerate a man who is constantly telling me that I'm not good enough, but I could be if only I was thinner.)

3) you don't believe in double-standards - of any kind, under any circumstances, for any reason (I believe in equal pay for equal work; what's good for the goose is good for the gander)

4) you know how to kiss - without licking me like a dog or sucking my whole face into your mouth (a good kisser is harder to find than a good man!) (Update: I can't stress this one enough! Seriously, kissing is a lost art.)

5) you know how to have fun and you are up for anything (I once drove 4 hours on a whim just to have dinner at a restuarant I really like; I moved halfway across the country without knowing anyone here. I'm not crazy or a daredevil, but if I suddenly decide to do something, I do it . . . and if you are my man I don't want to hear you say, "Go ahead - I'll watch." You need to be willing to do it with me.)
The two of us
