So here goes my attempt at convincing you that I am, in fact, a great catch...
I have a sarcastic sense of humor, and I love to laugh.
I've been described as somewhat of an introvert. I don't consider this to be a bad thing, I just tend to be a little shy/quiet/reserved when I first meet someone. It takes me a little time to open up. But I also have an outgoing side, and I would like to meet someone who is interested in seeing that side of me also :) As the saying goes, "opposites attract", and I tend to be attracted to more outgoing types, perhaps because they are able to get me to open up?
I work with children, and I love it, because I get to tap into my inner child every day. I am a rather mature, responsible person, but I get along very well with kids because I have so much fun acting like one. I will make a fool out of myself to make a child laugh.
I love sports. I don't mean in a, "oh look at those cute uniforms" kind of way. Baseball is in no way "boring", and football is the only way to spend a Saturday/Sunday in the fall. I know the rules, watch SC on a daily basis, and have spent many vacations (6, to be exact) at Spring Training, just because I love baseball that much. I love going to games, tailgating, and just lounging by the TV with a cold beer watching the game. I'd like to meet someone with a similar love of all things competitive, who could teach me a few more things ;)
I’m a night person, and enjoy staying up way too late, even knowing I have to get up early for work. Mornings are not my thing, and anyone who has lived with me can attest to the fact that I am not the most social person at 6am.
My family is rather large, and predominately male. I’m positive this has influenced my love of sports and lack of a “girlie” side. I do enjoy getting dressed up, shopping, spending too much money on haircuts…all that jazz. However, I don’t get manicures, will leave the house without makeup, in sweats, etc., and enjoy a good sports bar over a nighclub. I like to think there is a good balance between my "tomboy" side and my "girlie" side.
I find men who do the “gentlemanly” thing (open doors, pull out chairs, etc.) are extremely sweet and I adore them. Not to sound too anti-feminist, but I think it’s nice when someone else thinks of little things like that. Yes, I am capable of opening doors, but when did it become sexist to do something like that? I’m a romantic at heart, and hope you are too. I'm looking for a relationship where there is a mutual sense of "taking care of" the other person.
I love to read, and take my Nook with me almost everywhere. You never know when you may end up with some down time. And I love getting book recommendations, so feel free to share any good ones you have read lately. *I'll admit to being a sucker for romance novels...they're just so steamy! And I'm not ashamed =)
Well, that’s definitely the most I’ve ever written about myself and I’m thinking it is sufficient. I hope to hear from you =)
