I consider myself to be an old fashioned girl. Maybe that is why I am skeptic when it comes to this online dating??? I joined because I have heard from a lot of people such as family, friends and co-workers that this really works?! I also have friends that found their significant others on this site and have gone on and gotten married. Who knew?! So, I figured that I could give this a try and see if it works. As a skeptic, I'll believe it when I see it. I like a tight knit circle, so I am close with my family and have a core group of friends I have known for a long time. I also like meeting new people and doing new things. I am not the most adventurous person but I figure that you have to at least try once. I have spent a long while in school but am so glad to have accomplished and finished those goals without any reliance from anybody (i.e. no school loans!). I am a pretty simple person and enjoy the company of family and friends by going out or staying in. The kind of person I am looking for would have to be someone who is similar to me but bring things to my life that will enrich it. It would be nice to find someone who is educated and smart but also down to earth and funny. I do not believe in settling for anything less than what I want because life is too short.
