I just moved back to the area and I'm looking for friends and something casual but still open minded for something more.
I'm 25 and making some changes in my life. I have moved back in with my parents and I am in the process of returning to college to finish my degree that I abandoned.
I'm laid back, fun loving and a little quirky - ie nerdy and sometimes awkward
I suffer from mild anxiety and new people/places/things make me a little nervous so until I'm comfortable with someone my social skills are a little sub-par. But I promise if you can hold out through that phase I'm a neat person to know.
I lead a pretty quiet life but am game for the occasional adventure. Right now I want to focus on school so I don't get into anything too crazy these days. I just moved back to the area after living in North Dakota for 4 years so most of my time is spent re-connecting with friends and family, working, watching movies/tv and reading. I have a 8 mo. old puppy who I adore.
Some of my major guilty pleasures in life are geeky things; Harry Potter, Doctor Who, imgur.com, Chuck Taylor's, zombies and Star Wars.
Some of my favorite books are: Slaughter House 5, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and pretty much anything by Chuck Palahniuk, Bukowski or Vonnegut.
My Favorite movies include: Star Wars (the original trilogy), the Harry Potter series, Fight Club, The Princess Bride, Monty Python and the Holy Grail and The Boondock Saints.
I make movie, book and TV references constantly, make nerdy and sometimes cheesy jokes and spend way too much time on the internet.
Nitty Gritty: I do have 8 tattoos and 9 piercings including two lip piercings and 00's in my ears. I am a jeans and a t-shirt kind of girl but I can dress up when the mood strikes or the occasion calls for it. I am not Suzy-Homemaker by any means but I bake some fairly phenomenal cupcakes. I was married for 3 years and do not have any issues talking about it, if you have questions please ask. I am Bi-Sexual so if you have any personal moral or religious issues with that please do not contact me. I can mind my P's and Q's when it is appropriate but I also drop F-bombs and tell dirty jokes when its a more relaxed atmosphere. I am not into sports - watching or playing, or outdoorsy stuff. However, I do enjoy a nice day at the lake or short camping trips. For the most part I'm low maintenance and laid back. Communication isn't one of my stronger points but I do pride myself on my sense of honesty. I am very loyal, kind and giving. I try to keep an open mind about most everything and I am very non-judgmental.
I am looking for someone who will challenge me and is comfortable with being challenged by me. I feel a strong relationship is built on a strong friendship and that both partners should bring out the best in each other and make each other better people.
After all that, I have never done online dating before so bear with me as I figure this whole thing out.
