ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

To sum myself up in a nutshell (help, I'm in a nutshell!)...I'm fun, funny in a 'laugh with me or at me' sort of way, super sociable and I adapt easily into just about any environment. I'm friendly, well-read and educated, and love games and adventure. I would love to meet someone with a sense of humor, genuine personality and who knows the difference between "there, their and they're" and "you're" and "your" (I love that Match filters the emails I'm sent where someone butchers 'you're'...example, 'YOUR hot' or 'YOUR' interesting. Guys, it's that big of a deal :). Other pet peeves...machismo shirtless profile pictures, lies, chewing with the mouth open, and slow drivers in the fast lane.

So why am I here? Well, I think bars are so cliche they make the term cliche cliche. I don't like muddying the waters of my male friendships, convoluting work and play, so I thought I'd try online dating once more. I did a three month stint last year, quit for six months and signed up again when school ended last semester.

I returned to college in 2009 to pursue a degree in Sociology; my end goal is to become a child protective services or social worker specializing in rehabilitating at risk youth. Appearances come secondary to a good heart. I don't do drama, gush and mush, long phone calls about nothing, or overbearing. I've always been an independent woman, have been on my own since I was 15....so at a party, I'm perfectly content to go off on my own and make new friends, or equally comfortable as a companion.
Even though I consider myself a Liberal, I'm always open to hearing out other points of view (to an extent...Tea Party Obama bashing is a deal breaker for this girl). My preference is to connect with someone who is like minded on the major fronts.
I LOVE roller coasters, eating, adventures, and of course...adventures in eating.... and I really will try anything once. Which has made for some really entertaining experiences :) Recently, I took my first flight in a three person bi-plane, and my only regret was that we didn't do barrel rolls! Even though I was initially reticent, it took all of 5 seconds before I was completely invested. Exhilarating!

My two incredible children are my priorities and the best part of my world. I work hard, I have crazy high expectations of myself, and the expectation I have of a partner is simply for them to have a good soul and ambitions of their own. Someone I can laugh with, feel the kind of emotions John Legend...Chai lattes...Butterscotch or Vanilla scents...snuggling under a fuzzy blanket on a rainy day...cobblestone streets in Italy...long drives to nowhere...and incredible food...evoke. I miss that twitterpated feeling, staring off vacantly at work with a ridiculous smile stuck on my face while people wonder, "what is wrong with THAT girl".

Thanks :)
