ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

Okay, here goes... Since we’re all here to put our best face forward (and because I haven’t come up with a more creative ice breaker), I’ll begin by describing a few of my best qualities:
1. “I’m a really bad liar!” (genuine and sincere)
2. I’m sensitive/ kind
3. I’m open-minded and flexible
I may not reflect these qualities perfectly, but I value them.

What am I passionate about or grateful for?
People. Diversity. My career (which allows me to work with youth and be creative). Family, friends, animals. Music - love to sing! Books, writing, modern poetry. Art (not that I have that gift!). Faith, hope, second chances. Nature. Learning and making new discoveries as often as possible!

What do I like to do? This summer mostly I've been cutting my grass... just kidding. Well, on dates, I just like to relax and spend time together. I like to be outside when it's nice out. I especially love the smell and crisp air of fall, but there's something to love about every season. I love art shows, listening to music, taking walks after dinner, and dinner, of course! I like ethnic food, coffee houses and wine bars, Madison and Chicago, theater, concerts,biking, hiking (on my own or with a partner). Occasionally I like to camp, kayak, do zip lines, “meet up” adventures that sound fun, see the holiday lights, go to movies, etc.

My career? I’m currently working as a middle school counselor. I’ll spare you the gory details (just kidding - lots of hormones!) I worked in community mental health and child welfare settings for a number of years in the Chicago area before settling into education so you can pretty much tell me anything (!). I now live north of Rockford, IL, near WI, and enjoy the peace up here. I visit Chicago regularly to see my family, and Indiana to see my son, who just started college. He’s an aspiring teacher and musician. I enjoy witnessing the young man he is becoming day by day.

What makes me smile? A great meal. Sunny days. Creativity. Comedy. Kids. I have two cats; just watching them relaxes me (but don’t call me a cat lady until you get to know me better!). I like modern poetry, both reading and writing (it allows me to flex that English degree I rarely use!).

What am I looking for in a partner? In a nutshell, someone I trust, feel comfortable with and can have fun with, someone caring who has a zest for life (perhaps a goofy sense of humor?). We don't have to share all the same interests, just a few. I’m seeking someone who values communication and partnership, who is seeking a similar level of commitment (when things get to that level). In a new relationship, I like to focus on just getting to know the other person and having fun, of course. Ultimately I am looking for a long-term relationship and possibly marriage. In the long run, for relationships to be successful I think it’s important for couples to decide to view each others’ strengths and even those unique quirks as greater than each others’ differences and weaknesses. It's a conscious choice.

Well, when we meet, I may seem shy at first... don’t be fooled! Once we click, I will probably be quite animated, especially once I get started telling stories! Ok, sometimes I'm quiet, reflective, sometimes animated and energetic; it can be all or nothing with me! It just depends on the day and what’s going on at the time. (I know I’m not alone!)

Well, enough about me. I'm ready to hear about you! If any of this seems interesting and we share some common denominators, please drop me a line! Thanks for reading! - Pam
