Update: I have recently moved to Budapest, Hungary, where I will most likely remain for a while. Look me up if you're in the area!
It's hard to describe yourself accurately when judgement occurs on a page! Talk about pressure. :) I like to go back and change it up every now and then; words can get stale, too. If I could convey myself properly to you on this page, you'd know that I'm silly - I laugh at myself often, and I'm usually the butt of my own jokes. I'm smart, but not obnoxious about it, and I'm extremely easy-going. I care about people, especially my family, friends and pets, but my care is not limited to them. I'm a little quirky, but not in a weird, people stare at me and wonder if I'm 'off' kind of a way, and I'm probably different than any girl you have dated in the past. That's not just because I fall more than most people, either.
I can also tell you what I'm not. I'm not self-obsessed, and as you can probably tell from my pictures, that goes along with my appearance. I like to look good, but I'm not spending two hours in front of a mirror every day to impress people. I tend to impress people with my personality, and I find that much sexier than stilettos. (Plus, those things hurt.) I'm not in to drama, or being high-maintenance. I'm shocked at how some women behave and keep men at their sides! Shame on you guys, some of you deserve better! ;-) I'm not a liar, cheater, in to games, or anything else dishonest or fake - I don't make any room in my life for those things, and won't accept them as characteristics in a partner.
On a more personal level, I love to travel and have begun my dreams to live and work in Europe, which is one of the best things I've ever done for myself. I teach English to 8, 9, and 10 year-olds, and I love it, and them. I do enjoy cooking, though I prefer two bodies in the kitchen, it goes along with my social nature. It's much more enjoyable to do it together. I am close to my family, my nieces and nephew, and enjoy girl nights whenever possible.
I'm looking for the same thing every girl is looking for. A good man. I'd love to meet an open-minded, intelligent, funny, loving man who has goals for himself, would like a family, and is honest. I'm a total sucker for blue eyes, though it's not necessary. If you like Europe, are from there, or would love to travel there frequently, that would be a bonus as well. I'm not in to the playboy type - if you take yourself too seriously, or hold yourself in a higher-than-normal regard, (read: pretentious) we probably won't get along too well. I kind of like some dorky things, and if we shared some of that, that'd be cool.
