I'm 28, high energy, goal oriented, and incredibly organized.
I love reading pretty much anything I can get my hands on. It's my favorite hobby. Comic books, sci-fi, fantasy, political thrillers, spy novels all tickle my fancy. I love poetry. I am a nerd.
I also love to socialize. I value a drink with my friends and a good conversation above all else. Give me a debate or a moral question and I will talk with you endlessly.
I am good at compromise. I care way too much about other people than is good for me. I am, in my own small way, dedicated to helping people learn and grow. I believe that anything I put my mind to, I can do... given enough time and probably a lot of frustration. But that's okay.
I believe the world is a beautiful place, but I am not a dreamer. Persistence and determination are my favorite words. The poem Desiderata by Max Erhmann sums up my life philosophy fairly neatly, so google it and take a moment to enjoy some literature.
I graduated several years ago with my M.Ed. I started teaching immediately after graduation and have never looked back. I don’t look at teaching as a job, but a career which I am extremely passionate about. If you ever want to hear a nice long rant, ask me about the education system in America today. Also, please keep in mind that I teach English, so if your e-mail looks and sounds like it was written by a middle schooler, I’ll lose interest pretty quickly.
I love kids. I help kids learn all day, then come home to my son who is absolutely my world. If you don’t like or want kids, I’m willing to be your friend and activity partner but not anything more.
I’m looking for someone who wants to share positive experiences with me. I value strength, confidence, and humor in myself and am looking for someone who has those qualities as well. Right now I’m looking for fun and dating with an eye out for a lifelong partner. My dream is to find my soul mate: that person who inspires passion, loyalty, and friendship. If I sound at all appealing, feel free to e-mail me!
After having been on Match for a month now, here are a few things I'd like to add because, apparently, it's necessary:
1. I listed myself as curvy. That doesn't mean fat. I'm a size 4 with an hourglass figure. I have curves, I would look at home in the 1950's. I do pilates and cardio every day and eat clean, healthy food. I care about my fitness and appearance. If I'm not posting full body shots in my pictures, it's because I don't want to be leered at by strangers. It is impolite to demand to see my body before you talk to me. Come on, now.
2. No, it is NOT ok to ask me if and where I buy lingerie when you start talking to me. Nor is it ok to ask my bra size. I will not talk to you if you think that's appropriate conversation. Seriously.
3. Put those conversation skills to good use, gentlemen! "Whut up?" is not a good e-mail! Ask me something, tell me a story, comment on something from my profile that you think is interesting. Stand out from the crowd. Be a superstar.
NEW AND IMPROVED!: 4. If you are married, engaged, or in an otherwise committed relationship, please do not contact me. I don't feel like getting e-mails from your wife/fiance/girlfriend calling me names that I usually give detentions for.
