Randoms About Me:
I laugh...a lot. I try not to laugh when it is inappropriate, but I can't say it has never happened. Also, I talk more when I am nervous. Uncomfortable silence? I will fill it.
Generally speaking, I love dogs. Snakes and spiders don't scare me at all, but I'm terrified of birds.
I am horrible with any kinds of electronics or generally anything that comes with instructions.
I've always wanted to learn to play the guitar. I love roller coasters! I tried sushi for the first time about three years ago and think it is fantastic. I don't chew gum...ever.
I could never have enough time at the beach, but spending time by any type of water (other than swamps) is just as satisfying.
I completed a marathon a few years ago, but I have slacked off on my running (long story there). Slowly, getting back into the groove. Going to do at least one half marathon before the end of the year (2013).
Bon Jovi is my favorite band.I have seen them several times in concert. I'd being lying if I said I don't enjoy cheesy pop songs. I've never had a bad time doing karaoke.
Disney World is awesome and I try to go at least once a year. As much as I love summer, I can't wait for football every fall. College tailgating and the Pats!
Philosophy and Life Lessons:
I have learned so many lessons in life, but I still learn every day. My son has taught me how to live in the moment and not take life for granted. My maternal grandfather taught me compassion and integrity. My best friend taught me that you can love someone other than your child, unconditionally. My mother showed me the importance of hard work. My father taught me how far a sense of humor can take you in life.
What I'm Looking For:
I am looking for a mature man with a kind soul. I mean emotionally mature, but he can still appreciate"that's what she said." He must have goals. He doesn't have to have met them all, but he needs to have them. He needs to believe in growing as a person and have self awareness. It would be nice to have some things in common, but it isn't necessary that we have everything in common. I'm looking for intelligence, wit, and I'm a sucker for a sarcastic sense of humor. I don't want a man that is caught up in material things or that is extremely vain. I want to be loved just as I am, flaws and all. I am independent and take care of myself, so I don't NEED a man to take care of me, but I want him to want to. Make sense?
