Sunshine on my face and green grass or crunchy leaves under my feet brings a smile to my face. A smile that I can enjoy by myself or share with friends, but one that I’d really like to share with a romantic someone…
As a 30 year-old high school teacher I’ve spent time since college pursuing my career. And I’ve been quite successful- a Master’s and am now in my 7th year of teaching. What I haven’t spent time on is my love life, at least not in the way that moves me to where I want to be. I desire to connect with a person and sharing the ups and downs of my day, laughing, alternating between silliness and meaningful conversations, and experiencing life’s journey together. In the short term, I’d like to meet some new people over coffee or drinks and maybe find one to focus on more specifically.
Like anyone, I have my strengths and weaknesses, fortunately for me and others I know them (but that doesn’t mean I have them “solved”). I’m not perfect and I don’t expect you to be. I am generous, compassionate, intelligent, articulate, respectful, intentional, a great conversationalist, funny, approachable, and attentive to my own self-growth. I'm passionate about making the world a better place. I'm not naive, but I am hopeful. I consider myself a liberal/ progressive Catholic, concerned with social justice and the environment.
Family and friends are an important part of my life, so a man who can appreciate time spent with mine and their own is essential. I enjoy people with loving hearts who can also be the lively conversation-starters in a group, and who aren't afraid to turn up the car radio and sing at the top of their lungs without embarrassment.
If I sound like a woman you'd like to get to know, I hope to hear from you.
Stroll around an art and wine festival, letting our booth perusing guide our conversation beyond the "what interests do you have" opening questions.
Sip coffee and meander through a used book store, remembering favorite titles and authors, or maybe just liking the feeling a good book gives even if the details are fuzzy now.
Play a game of mini-golf, placing a bet for dessert or a beer on the outcome.
