My self-summary
I am an exuberant, feisty woman who enjoys life.

I banter. I hope you do too.

I travel as much as I can. I'd like a partner who's game to join. Let's backpack in South America, swim in the Greek Islands, and surf in New Zealand.

Working out! I love it. I do it often. The same can be said about reading and writing.

I can be sweet. I can be aggressive. Deal with it, you may benefit from it. I am a lot kinder and more of a bleeding heart than I first appear.

I am comfortable with my oddities.

I'm a city girl who likes to get out, explore museums, and see a show. However, camping, hiking, outdoorsy things are pretty great too. You just aren't going to find me happily living in Ely.

Oh, and you are not above a dance party in the kitchen (because that will happen).

Full disclosure, full monty, whatever: I rarely drink. I like to make my choices fully cognizant and know how to have a good time without the help.

And finally, I'm independent and even-keeled. So I'm not looking to merge or be saved. I want a kind man who is ready to be a partner, can make me laugh, and who will challenge me.
What I’m doing with my life
Currently, I work in retail and help out with my nephews and niece. I have been a grade school teacher, a server, and an office minion. I'm trying to find a more meaningful career that does not involve folding shirts (though what a skill to have...).
I’m really good at
laughing inappropriately
talking/writing about nothing
parallel parking (only impressive as I have terrible depth perception)
making an awkward situation even more awkward
drinking excessive amounts of coffee
being overly enthusiastic
finding the humor
traveling solo
being a kick ass aunt
The first things people usually notice about me
I am tall, often wearing chucks, and usually laughing.

That's three things, but they paint the correct picture.

all the other usual things that belong on this list (family, friends, yada, yada, yada)
On a typical Friday night I am
living the dream, working, or both if I'm feeling really ambitious.
You should message me if
You are an amazing, funny, fun-loving man, who appreciates life and knows how to treat others. Oh and you're ready for a relationship. I'm too old to mess around (though I do like messing around).

And you'd like to grab coffee, wander, roll down a hill, etc.

I do want a relationship, but would rather be alone than with someone who doesn't excite me or isn't excited about me. So yeah, let's get excited.
