I am a kind, fun, hard-working, independent woman. I am looking for someone who is easy to talk to, confident with who they are, and mostly importantly, makes me laugh. I like someone who is active and enjoys his career. I have been living in the Northern Virginia area for 3 years now. I am originally from the west Michigan area. I grew up just down the road from beautiful Lake Michigan, where I would spend most of my summers hanging out at the beach. While I miss my family, I am enjoying living in Virginia. I am a 5th grade teacher and I absolutely love my job. There is never a dull moment in teaching. My students are constantly making me laugh. Along with teaching, I love to spend my time listening to music and singing. I just got a guitar for Christmas, so I have been spending time teaching myself how to play. I enjoy spending time with friends on the weekend; grabbing a bite to eat, going out for happy hours, and seeing a movie. I am looking forward to the warmer weather. I enjoy being outside and staying active. Last year, I ran my first half-marathon which was a wonderful experience. I never knew I could do something like that, so it was a really proud moment for me. It has shown me that there are a lot of other things that I would love to do such as traveling more. Ultimately, I am here because I am looking for a guy that can make me feel special and that I can enjoy spending time with whether it be going out to dinner, staying in and watching a movie, or doing something outdoorsy like hiking. So If you're interested in meeting for coffee or a drink, send me an e-mail. I would love to hear from you!
