My self-summary
I never really expected to find myself on a site such as this looking for "the one", but here I am doing just that. My world has taken several turns, both good and bad, that have brought me here. I am typically a positive person, looking for that special someone to help complete me. I have established a happy life - but am just missing that special person to make it even better. I am looking for a drama-free situation. I am a passionate person who wants someone to share all of that with. I am ultimately looking for love, but do believe that often begins with friendship.

I have strong moral values, but do not believe in organized religion. I find most of it somewhat appalling actually. I respect other's choices on this matter as long as it is not preached at or pushed onto me.

I have been hurt and can be guarded with my feelings, but also find that I am very trusting (although I tend to OVERTHINK and ANALYZE everything) - until I am given a reason to not trust.

I am kind, caring, passionate, honest, and very supportive of the people around me. I smile a lot and blush when given compliments. I love to cuddle and kiss - and miss having someone to do that with.

The A-list feature freaks me out a bit - when guys message me without me seeing that they have even read my profile... not sure I like the feature. I like to know who is viewing my profile.

I hate being talked down to.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching our future leaders... I am very passionate about education and my work (I work a lot), but also know how to "let it go" and enjoy life. I try to enjoy every day to the fullest. Hoping to continue to expand my horizons. I am looking to share new experiences with someone special.
I’m really good at
Children... I am a teacher, doing my best daily to make a difference in the lives of each of the children I work with.

Doing laundry ~ I actually enjoy it.

Smiling - I do it a lot.

Appreciating what I have.
The first things people usually notice about me
Usually I am told my eyes or my smile. I am curious to know what you notice first...

Multiple men have told me that they think that I resemble Andie MacDowell - I don't see it at all though.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I could go on and on here.... will do my best to give you a true reflection of myself.

Books - a huge fan of most children's books, The Poky Little Puppy, Oh, The Places You'll Go, A Million Little Pieces, The Tenth Circle, Hunger Games, Catching Fire, The Last Lecture, Angels and Demons, The DaVinci Code, The Road Less Traveled, Letter to a Christian Nation...

Movies - Goonies, Back to the Future, True Romance, Slumdog Millionaire, Blindside, Top Gun, Juno, Water for Elephants, The Vow, Inception, King's Speech, Remember the Titans, Second Hand Lions, The Hangover, A Walk to Remember, My Sister's Keeper, August Rush - I am sure there are many more.

Shows - Up All Night, Whitney, Nashville, Bill Maher, Survivor, Big Brother, The Voice, Mistresses, The Today Show. My tv is almost always on - but for some reason I am not always actually watching it. I am somewhat of a football fanatic and do not like missing the games on Sundays and hate when the season comes to an end.

Music - Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Adele, Phillip Phillips, Aaron Lewis, Staind, Danielle Bradbury, The Lumineers - enjoy listening to just about anything and always find some kind of enjoyment in it. I also really enjoy listening to live music in a small setting.

Food - my favorite food - potatoes (I know strange) - however there are others. Does wine count? Diet Pepsi makes me really happy and so does blueberry tea! A fan of Mini Chewy Sweettarts ~ a weakness. I am currently in the process of "attempting" to eat healthier on a regular basis ~ doing better, but still crave all that bad for me stuff.
The six things I could never do without
cell phone - to stay connected - preferably my iPhone

my FAMILY and friends - because they are the BEST! (most of the time)


my toothbrush and toothpaste

car - for transportation


THINGS I COULD DO WITHOUT - traffic, allergies, liars
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why I am single - the future and what it holds for me - what I will have for dinner - traveling - my job - the children I work with (both current and former) - money/finances - if I will ever understand men (probably not) - why the best sleep is the ten minutes before the alarm clock goes off - if Mr. Right exists
On a typical Friday night I am
I am not sure there is a typical for me on a Friday night or any other time. I could be relaxing after a long week, out with friends, having a drink or two, watching football or lacrosse game, going for a walk - I am open for suggestions.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I worry that I will end up alone. (I also sometimes buy myself flowers to brighten my day...) shh... it is private.
