Let me start out by telling you what I'm not. I am not a cheater, liar, thief or user nor do I tolerate people who are. I am not a drama-queen, supermodel or beauty queen. I am not a fighter (unless I have to be). I am not malicious, vindictive or cold-hearted. I am not loud & obnoxious. I do not wear alot of make up or like being the center of attention. What I am is someone special. I consider myself to be moderately intelligent. I have a good down-to-earth personality and can get along with just about anyone. I am fine in a group setting or person to person. I have a good sense of humor, love to laugh & have the laugh lines to prove it. I believe in equality of the sexes (i.e. I pay for me, you pay for you). I donate my blood & hair as often as I can. I always say thank you and leave a good tip. I believe in doing random acts of kindness and smiling as often as I can at people. I have few close friends because I am choosy whom I let get close to me. I have all my original teeth and visit the dentist every 6 months. I have been at my job for 10 years and still love it. I have been single for 17 months and think I am ready to try dating again. I have learned to be as honest as possible, with myself and with others. I am a Christian and believe in the Golden Rule of "do unto others". I have a 14 yr old son who lives with me most of the time. He and I have been a team since he was 5. I love to go hiking, camping, tubing, fishing, bowling, shooting pool, reading, vegging out, watching movies or hanging out. My favorite vacationing is at the beach. I also like going to amusement parks and riding roller coasters. I am looking for someone with similar qualities, values and morals; someone who enjoys some, maybe not all, of the things i do; and someone who can accept me for who I am. I have never been vain but have been told I clean up nice. I am always trying to improve some part of my body; it hasn't been the same in 14 years. I like to jog or do aerobics or pilates but have been extremely lazy the last 3 months. I am a very healthy, thick girl. I'm looking forward to getting back into shape. Well, I think that's a good enough start . . . Let me know if you're interested.
