My sister in law helped write this up for me almost a year ago after my mom asked her to find someone for me. My heart wasn't really in it at the time, but I thought it was cool to check out profiles. To those who sent a wink, sorry I didn't respond, but I'll be signing up after the holidays. I figured I'd sign on and update/fix a few things first. The pictures are primarilly from her wedding last November, so they are still fairly recent. I am a caring, intellectual, affectionate, loving, honest, emotional person who is looking for the same. Someone who is looking for a relationship, not just a one night stand, but something REAL. I am looking for someone who turns me on physically and intellectually. Also someone who enjoys receiving and giving affection. Most of my life has revolved around teaching for a while now. I put a lot of myself into the job. I teach 1st grade, and feel it's the most important of their academic career. I love my students, and was blessed this year with my first well behaved class. I have done lots of things in my life, and would like to start doing them again. I'm a scuba diver, but haven't been in 2 years, I am a certified masseur, but my massage table is gathering dust in the closet. I became an internet travel agent planning go on discounted vacations, and making a little money but have done little with it. Most things in life are far more enjoyable if you are doing them with someone you enjoy being with. With a little luck, maybe Match can help guide me to that person. I look foreward to hearing from you.
