My self-summary
First to get it out of the way I am a Transwoman (MtF. I transitioned 8 years ago and have never been happier. My partner is [GracieSelona]. She is really cool feel free to say hi!

First off I talk... a lot... to pretty much anyone but I listen almost as well which allows me to make friends very easily. I would say my sense of humor plays a part too. I rarely go more than 20 minutes without laughing or inspiring someone else to laugh. I derive a great deal of pleasure from laughter. I also derive a great deal of pleasure from pleasure, but we'll save that for chapter two. ;)

I'm a parent of two that are now successful adults. One of them still lives with me and goes to college. The other graduated from GSU Cum Laude and is now working as a Librarian and going to Grad School.

I grew up in a very small town far away from the big city and as such have lots of small town mores. I greatly value friendship and loyalty as well as love and honesty. I can be very independent but would love to be able to trust someone enough to 'let go' part of the time. I have a powerful work ethic, but I have learned to work to live instead of living to work. I work hard but play harder. I was educated and have worked and socialized extensively in the 'big city.' I am fiscally conservative, but extremely liberal socially. I am a firm believer that the government that governs least governs best. I am an ENFP on the Myers-Briggs. I find myself generally most attracted to other ENFPs and INTJ/INTPs. I have a very dominant personality seemingly but play well with others and occasionally have a relationship where I am not the dominant party. As an ENFP I've held many jobs in my life and had clawed my way up to Middle Management when I transitioned. That forced me to start over but I just finished MBA and hope that will give me leverage to work my way back up.

I am very much a 'Jill of All Trades.' I play most sports decently but tend to prefer the team or social sports best. I despise running/jogging as an 'activity' but don't mind at all playing sports that include running as one of the aspects. I like to play basketball, softball, tennis, golf, ultimate, football, ping pong, pool, badminton, and volleyball. I bowl, swim, fish, and shoot. However, shopping is my favorite sport sport of all!

Music plays a big part of my life. I don't play an instrument (other than on Guitar Hero) and will never win American Idol but I love to sing Karaoke.

I am a hopeless romantic and my primary love language is 'Words of Affection' with Touch being a very close second. I give generously of my time to those I love and frequently volunteer myself to help out where ever I can. My current torch is for Lost N Found Youth. I am not shy about sharing my experiences and knowledge with those who ask for it. Having said that one of my biggest flaws is spreading myself too thin and sharing too much of my time.

I am one of the most open-minded people you will ever meet. As long as you are not harming children or animals or infringing on other's rights, I won't bother you. However, I am very passionate about the rights of the individual. I am much quicker to laugh than most. I see humor in most situations and believe laughter is the best medicine. I am very open and will talk about anything and do not have any 'third rail' topics.

I am a huge DragonCon Fan. I go every year and in recent years I have been on staff in Tech Ops. So yes I am a bit geeky.

I am mentally flexible, friendly, and curious.

Public Safety Announcement avoid 'NotADouche34' he really is a Douche.
What I’m doing with my life
The most obvious thing is that I am questioning everything in my life, not just gender but all assumptions. My favorite question is 'why?' I just finished my MBA but I'm not stopping there. I'm either going on to get a PHD or a JD. I haven't decided which yet. But no matter what I'm doing I have fun every day, even when things are looking their worst.
I’m really good at
Listening and getting to know people. I can talk to anyone. I am a whiz with a grill and pretty good in the kitchen. I am also very good at trivia, for some reason my mind is good at storing stupid facts but I have a problem remembering where I put my sunglasses. I am also very good at learning new things. I try to find the humor in almost any situation and am pretty good at getting people to laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
Dang you're tall! After that they notice I'm very outgoing and smile a lot. Strangers are only friends I haven't me yet. They also think they have run into the Energizer Bunny. I have lots of energy especially in groups. I have also not developed a fully reliable social filter.
