I'm hoping to find someone who is generally upbeat and positive. I usually mesh well with someone whose strengths match my weaknesses, and vice versa.
I'm an animal lover (especially dogs), a history buff, and I'm trying (slowly) to learn Mandarin Chinese. I loved my former life as a schoolteacher, and I wouldn't be surprised if I returned to it someday.
My weaknesses include hot chocolate, warm socks, and New York style pizza (know of a good place?). I may also be addicted to parentheses. (We're still looking into it.) I very rarely drink, typically only on those rare occasions when I'm at a club or a party, and even then rarely do I imbibe enough to preclude me from playing designated driver. (Gotta break out the big vocab words for the profile!)
I prefer to have my life's drama confined to the TV. There are enough problems in the world without being devoted to someone who seeks them out when they're bored. My apologies to the unapologetic drama queens out there, but I just like to do my best to make my home life my sanctuary, and my time away from work a joy instead of a chore.
Clearly, I'm an avid photographer (hobby only) and traveller (for both business and pleasure). I'd love to find a new author to get addicted to. I lost my love of reading a few years back, and am hoping to resurrect it.
