I am pretty quiet and shy until I get to know someone pretty well, and kind of new to the world of online dating. I live by myself (well, with my dog and 2 cats) in the East Bay. I am currently working on a double major in psychology and early childhood education. I love to read, take long walks or hikes with my dog, cuddle with my cats (when they let me), and just to learn anything and everything. My friends say I have a dry sense of humor, and I love to have a good laugh with another person. I like to keep up on current events, and sometimes I like to debate the issues with others.
My family is very large and very close, and one of the things that brings me the most joy in my life is playing with my nephews and and nieces. They call me "Aunt Mimi" and know that I always have treats and presents for them when I see them. Yeah, I'm a "kid person."
I grew up in a small town in the Midwest until Jr High, so I'm not all California. I'm a bit more modest, and I prefer quieter activities to huge crowds, although I will go to big events if someone else is with me.
