Probably not your typical “girl next door”-type…mainly for two reasons: 1.) I didn’t live anywhere long enough to really get to know my neighbors growing up *, and 2.) I’m not real “girly”…in that I’m not afraid to get under the hood of my own car to tinker around a bit, I always picked K*Nex Legos over Barbies and climbing trees over playing dress up. (I do enjoy dressing up on occasion, but I’m more comfortable in jeans/pants/sweats and a t-shirt). However, you could describe me as caring, compassionate, loyal, trustworthy and more...not your average sweet-as-sugar-and-spice woman…scratch that, been called “spicy” and “sassy” a time or two. ;)
Mostly a cautiously optimistic person – want to (and, for the most part, do) believe in humanity, but it takes me a little bit of time and the right atmosphere to put myself out there and open up. Certainly: humor, a fun social situation, or a healthy challenge (darts, pool, cribbage?), bring out the best in me. Dry, dirty, sarcastic, politically incorrect and “roast” humor…oh, and seeing someone completely wipe out (even if I’m trying to help bandage the person up…seriously, I have to hold back laughter...it’s completely inappropriate, I’m aware), make me laugh hysterically. If you’ve gotten me to laugh until breathless and tears streaming down my face: my day = MADE.
Bit of a nerd. LOVE learning new words, working on math and statistics. Business Intelligence software. Logical puzzles. Analysis of data. SeparatingmyskittlesbycolorwhenIeatthem. Movies that incite: sobbing, laughter or deep thought. Well-planned surprises. Music: mainstream (NOT Chris Brown or Bieber), indie, classical, instrumental – all of it, especially live. Enjoy the arts; not a habit to go to museums/shows/exhibits - not opposed, just not in the usual repertoire. We could change that?
Mother to a wonderfully bright, loving, and incredible little boy. You’ll love him – he’s an awesome kid. I’m most certainly NOT on here to find him a “daddy” figure. He has one…a great one, in fact. Are you sitting down? We. Get. Along.
It wasn’t always easy; yes, my status above says “Divorced.” Truth be told, we were married VERY briefly and now we’ve both moved along for the sake of our boy. You’d probably like him - he’s a decent guy. I know, I know. No sob story here. No “baby daddy drama” or whatever. Just two people who ended up realizing their mistake early enough to make a change.
PHEW. That part’s out of the way.
I *might* be a little bit sappy, if you want to know the honest truth. But I’m more of a “do-er” than that sappy/sweet-nothings show-y gal. You’ll know that I like/care about/love you by the little things I do, not overtly…as in, I’m not into PDAs (or one-night stands).
Three things always cheer me up (in no particular order):
1. ‘Me and Bobby McGee’ 'Cabron'
2. dark chocolate
3. a nice glass of red wine.
I’m happy, ambitious, energetic and ready to see where life is going. I have amazing friends and family. I'm both silly and serious. Motivated, thoughtful and introspective. Enjoy a night as the life of the party or as a casual on-looker; others as a complete recluse (movie, phone switched off and a bottle of wine). Like to try new things and am up for spontaneous adventures. Would LOVE to travel more.
Looking for a best friend/partner/side-kick/partner-in-crime. Someone who’s independent, confident, laid back and fun. Able to find humor in everything. An ambitious hugger…nothing’s better than being wrapped up tight in someone’s arms sometimes. Not cocky, arrogant or rude. Always patient. You want a family and to stand next to a strong, independent woman.
I look forward to meeting you!
