Okay, I consider myself a pretty talented writer, but describing yourself positively without being a totally conceited jerk but also without playing yourself down into a mediocre and wishy-washy blob is pretty challenging. But, here goes.
I think I'm pretty awesome. I have only had a few boyfriends, so I'm a little leary about getting back on the ol' dating horse. But, I'm fairly attractive (kidding, I'm hot), I'm intelligent (translates to: I'm a friggin' genius), I'm funny (hilarious), caring (got love spewing from my pores), and I'm a great friend (I will do anything for my friends and family--there's no joking in that part.) I'm too busy and set in my ways to be clingy, but I'm eternally devoted to the people I love. I'm girly enough to BE a girlfriend, but tomboyish enough to know when I should leave the room while you talk smack with your homies or whatever. I'm feminine enough to dress nicely (most of the time), wear make-up, and make you feel all manish or whatever, but knowledgeable enough to be able to watch sports WITH you and not ask dumb questions or get mad when you don't want to cuddle and talk about feelings during extra innings, and I feel like that makes me a good catch; I'm a girl, but I can also be a friend. I'm understanding, and growing up with two older brothers means I understand guys...just as long as you occasionally understand that girls are inadvertantly crazy. We can't help it. Sorry. I promise I always keep the crazy to a minimum if you keep the disgusting caveman stuff on the down-low a couple times a week.
What I think would be a great catch is someone who I can chill with around my friends and family, who include people from a wide range of stereotypes such as redneck shoeless beer-drinkers to metrosexual intellectuals, all of whom I love with all my heart and soul, no matter their income, level of education, sexual preference, or choice of beverage. I want someone who likes to travel so I can see the world with them, be dumb with them, laugh with them, cry with them, grow old with them, and, despite the goofiness of this profile, I want someone to whom I can open up and show my serious/dynamic/spiritual/artistic side to, because there's more to me than the joking exterior, and I want to get to know someone deeply beyond their exterior and bond with them as well.
All in all, I want to have fun with a guy who wants to have fun with me and wants to see me happy, because when it comes to the people I love, all I want is for them to be happy, too, and I have a tendency to dedicate all that I am to those who I love, and those who love me.
P.S. (The following points of interest may sound a bit b*%&#y; sensitive folk may want to take the sarcastic tone with a grain of salt.)
If you are already married to your mobile device and expect me to drop my life and respond instantaneously every time you contact me, you will be disappointed. Especially if your idea of an intriguing text is "Hi." I realize the irony in being on this site considering my hatred for technology, but I like to socialize in REAL life in REAL time. I am extremely busy, for one thing, and when I'm not, I'm with friends or family experiencing things beyond the constraints of my computer chair and find texting to be rude when I am with company no matter who it is. I'm more of a live life with eyes up and open kind of girl, not a live life through my phone/computer with my eyes glued to a screen and thumbs tapping psychotically on a keyboard. Sorry.AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME IS 3-5 BUSINESS DAYS.
Also, conservatives who label themselves as such because of their high moral character or slghtly old-fashioned sensibilities are welcome. Teacher/union/gay-rights haters and/or chest-beating selfish chauvinists, however, need not apply.
