My self-summary
First---I realize many won't bother to read beyond this. So, for those: I am not on this site looking for a hookup. Sorry to disappoint.

Well, now that I got that out of the way, on to my profile.... I'm hoping to meet a great guy who I can someday call my boyfriend. I'm divorced and learned a lot from it. I spent 14 years with the wrong guy (Yikes, I know!). This translates to me being unwilling to settle...and often asked, "How is a girl like you single?". I'm a fun, confident, drama-free, tell-it-like-it-is girl, who tends to think more like a guy than a quintessential "chick" (eye rolls when I encounter those).

Socializing with friends is something I enjoy. Definitely not a loner. But, there is a part of me that yearns for someone close to enjoy spending one on one time.

I am sadly blessed with shitty "fat" genes that has led to working out needing to be an important part of my life. Before you roll your eyes, I didn't say I was fat, just that I have to work harder than most not to be. I've grown to enjoy working out (well, not always). For those who don't, I completely get how you can't fathom how someone could enjoy intentionally torturing themselves. I once thought that, too. Well, I ask you this: Do you enjoy really good sex...where you're working up a sweat? You know that amazing, relaxed, feeling afterwards? That's working out! It's sweat-producing physical activity that creates that incredible endorphin rush feeling in the end! It becomes addicting. Haha! Hey, on the topic...listen to some of the sounds people make at the gym.... Now you are going to think of me every time you hear a moan or groan 😉

So, why bring this up? A guy doesn't have to be a gym rat, but I'm definitely not looking for a couch potato who spends hours in front of the TV or playing video games. He doesn't have to be PlayGirl material (though that would be a perk 😉) I'm interested in a guy who is active and takes pride in himself. Hey, I'm not in model shape, so I don't expect my partner to be.
What I’m doing with my life
I love hanging out with a friend(s) on any night. My couch has a reserved vacant spot for snuggling while watching a movie, too. Applicants welcome! As far as hobbies: I love to dance (including playing Dance Central with my daughter and her friends) and play piano. I'm not an expert in either, though! Also...working, hanging with my kids, going to concerts, and trying to stay in a shape that isn't round.
I’m really good at
Let's see... My parlor tricks are: I am able to sit Indian style (or, criss-cross applesauce for the politically correct folk), with both knees touching the floor, and bend completely over to touch my forehead to the ground (lots of practice sitting Indian style because I'm short and my feet don't touch the ground in most chairs). I can also maintain a headstand indefinitely. Despite being short, I'm fairly strong for a chick. I'll admit to a very slight Napoleon complex. Being short, I've felt I needed to prove myself. Hmmm...I'm pretty good at playing foosball and I function well on little sleep. And, if you couldn't already tell, my sense of humor. I specialize in sarcasm and playful teasing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My height. Can't help it when you are this short!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Love comedies and action adventure movies. I especially love movies that make me laugh and are a welcome break from everyday stressful life, like:

All The Hangover movies
The Changeup
Old School
Dirty Dancing
Wedding Crashers
Hot Tub Time Machine
Grown Ups
Ferris Bueller's Day Off
Dumb & Dumber
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
You get the drift...

As far as rule of thumb is I like music that makes me want to get up and dance or sing-a-long. I have such a deep appreciation and love for music and musical talent.

Love a capella groups (Pentatonix, Home Free). A deep bass voice singing to me will work as foreplay!

Other groups:
Black Eyed Peas
Toby Kieth
Boyz II Men (they do a lot of a capella)
Garth Brooks
The Beatles
Lady Gaga
Zac Brown Band
Big & Rich
Billy Joel
Johnny Cash
Bruno Mars
Meghan Trainor
Pitbull (ie: dance music!!)
The list goes on...

I honestly don't watch much TV except for movies. I don't even have cable or satellite TV (can you believe that?!). I cancelled it years ago because I was spending lots of money to fill my DVR up with movies and for the kids to watch endless SpongeBob episodes. I do Netflix and Redbox for movies and a tv series here and there. I loved The Walking Dead, LOST, Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black. My current series is How I Met Your Mother.

As for food...I like and eat most everything. I love spicy foods and trying new foods. I'm probably the least picky eater you will ever meet.
The six things I could never do without
-A gym (refer to next on the list as to why)
-Sweets--Well, not without some hypnotherapy (yes, I have an addiction), and admittedly the main thing preventing me from that model body.
-A piano
-Music and Dancing (ok, ok. It's hard to narrow it down to only six. I cheated and combined these)
-Plush sheets in the fall/winter (100Xs better than flannel!)
-Heat (I hate the cold!)

I left out the obvious (boring...yawn): my children, food, hot showers, water, oxygen, soap, toothbrush, blah, blah, blah...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Wondering why so many guys don't smile for their pics on here? A genuine smile makes you so much more attractive and draws us ladies in! 😆

Many times, when perusing OkC questions of a profile, I wonder why, when I answered the same answer as him, my answer is in red? I didn't realize the concept of how to pick acceptable answers was so complex. [Eye roll]
On a typical Friday night I am
There isn't a typical Friday night for me. I could be out with a friend(s), at a concert, or listening to a band. Or, having friends over...chatting over a drink or playing games. With my kids, we play games and often watch a pg 13 movie. Hopefully soon, I will meet someone special to be able to snuggle under a blanket together for a special treat: watching a rated R movie! I would love to say dancing, but I need more dancing buddies, as I don't get to do this as often as I would like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, this isn't something "private", but something selfish (insert devilish smile here). I guess this would be the appropriate place to reveal, or "admit" this...

I look younger than my age and I LOVE it! I absolutely love when someone asks how old I am. I counter with, "How old do you think I am?" Hehe. I still get carded, though less and less frequently. I am secretly dreading the day this stops.
You should message me if
You're looking for an independent, fun, sexy, playfully sarcastic, confident woman (and don't mind that she is extremely short).

You read through my profile and a fair amount of answers to the questions and still think we would be a good match. If we are less than say...a 65-70%ish match, we most likely differ on enough values that we probably aren't compatible.

This profile is your resume. You wouldn't go to an interview disheveled and unshaven. Nothing turns me off more than reading a profile or message of interest permeated with grammatical errors. If you can't appear to have passed 3rd grade, I'm not interested.

Sadly, I've found I need to write this disclaimer:
Please don't message me if you are not over your ex. And, when I say "over", I don't mean you still love her. I mean you haven't moved on and she is still ruining your life (not past the anger stage). I've been on dates where he talks about his ex for 40+ min straight, on everything negative...she's a bitch, ruined his life, she took this or that, she constantly is trying to make his life miserable, etc... Someone with so much hate, is not attractive nor desirable. Not to mention, I can't help but think, "What happens when I do something to piss him off?" will happen. Will he bitch about me incessantly and say all sorts of negative things about me? originally chose to be with your ex. At one point you cared about her, and, at the very least, liked her.

Yes, we all have baggage. We both can relate to each other from our past. Our ex's will come up in conversation. But, I want to be with a guy who has put the past behind him and has moved on...ready to enjoy a new chapter in his life.

I sadly don't have the time to make ths site a part time job. So, please be patient with me in replying. Many times I find some have already blocked me by the time I log on to read and reply. I try hard to be a decent person and reply to most (who send me more than a one sentence msg)...even if in regret.
