My self-summary
I'll start by being upfront with what I'm looking for. I'm interested in finding a serious relationship that ideally leads to a family. If that's not for you, then we likely wouldn't be a good match.

I'm an outgoing, world traveler, a teacher, and a big kid at heart, very laid back, social, witty, sharp as a tack, and independent. I love to laugh, and find humor in most things. Opinionated, and stubborn at times. I'm direct, a straight shooter but I always try to be honest in the nicest way possible. Grasping, and being able to dish out sarcasm and silly banter is a BIG plus! Anytime I find a hilarious profile I'm sold.

I'm usually pretty energetic, upbeat, and active. I love reading, movies, theater, singing, dancing, acting and pretty much anything else involving the arts. I love to keep learning and recently decided to try and learn how to play the piano. I enjoy rock climbing but haven't done it in awhile. I'm not really into organized team sports but I like the outdoors. Mainly hiking, the ocean, and exploring. Oh and travel! That's a big one. I know, so generic but it's true. I've been to 20 plus countries and counting. I'm always looking to add another stamp to my passport!

P.S. I should mention that I'm not really interested in a lot of back and forth emails, texts, etc. I prefer to meet in person to see if there's any chemistry or not.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm quite social and during the school year pretty wrapped up with teaching. I teach second grade and enjoy my job. I'm very happy to say I don't dread going to work everyday! When I go out with friends I am more of a bar/pub person than a club. I like being active, traveling, taking my dog out and about, reading, movies, dance, museums, the ocean, photography, and lots more!
I’m really good at
Working with kids, singing, kissing, smiling, making people laugh, teaching, etc.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I look younger than I am ;-) I've also been told my smile...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All too many to name...Movies: Cinema Paradiso is my all-time favorite. I enjoy foreign, indie, musicals and classic old Hollywood flicks. My favorite classic actors are Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, and Gene Kelly. Argo, Love Actually, The Holiday, Old School, Ace Ventura, Zoolander, Office Space and stupid comedies are a hit for me. etc.

Books: I'm an avid reader and usually always reading something, often several books at a time. I love humorists. Anything by David Sedaris, (that man cracks me up!) Sarah Vowell, Laurie Notaro. I also love British authors and that style of humor.

Music: Because my grandparents helped raise me I love old crooners like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, etc. Kings of Leon, Vampire Weekend, Adele, Coldplay, Sam Smith, Calvin Harris, John Mayer, Imogen Heap, old school Motown, classical, jazz, some country etc.

T.V.: Game of Thrones, Orphan Black, Key and Peele, Drunk History, The New Girl, Anything on BBC, Modern Family, It's Always Sunny etc.

Food: I'm a bit of a picky eater but will try most things once. Love Dr. Pepper, Thai, Mex, Sushi, a good grilled cheese or tuna melt makes me so happy!

Sorry, too hard to only choose 6!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where I will get to travel next. My next meal. What's up with all the pics of guys climbing either Mt. Kilimanjaro or Machu Picchu?? Apparently I need to get one of those pics! What's the big fascination with Burning Man? What my students are going to ask me next...I get some interesting questions on the regular! What's up with all the terrible photos (i.e. Shirtless, posing in front of mirrors, cars, etc.) that so many guys post on here? Have you not consulted anyone about your profile? Call me old school, but does anyone actually use their phones to TALK anymore?? Crazy idea, I know...
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends on how long the week was. Usually it can range from out with the girls to dinner, movies, heading to a bar or relaxing at home ordering in food relaxing with a book or movie. Every so often up to the city for drinks or some other fun event.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am terrified of spiders and I hate clowns.
You should message me if
You like what you've read. You are genuine, attractive, kind, intelligent, looking for a real relationship, and have a good sense of humor. You'd like children and a family someday. You are actually interested in learning more about me, and know how to have an open dialogue. (i.e. You ask questions!) If you're interested in "casual sex," try Tinder and count me out! Please don't be shy and feel free to write me if you think we'd have something in common!
*On a side note, as flattered as I am by the emails, much younger guys just aren't my thing...I guess I'd like to think I'm not quite at the cougar stage just yet!
