About my life and what I'm looking for
I am ready to share life with someone that wants to get out and experience it first hand. I have been a homebody lately, working as a substitute teacher and going to school. I love to travel, but haven't been able to lately, time and money would not allow. However, once my school is over, I hope to be able to pick up and go somewhere new with someone who is ready to do the same. I am usually a very go with the flow kind a girl. I actually prefer other people to do the planning for me. I enjoy being surprised, within reason. I hope to have a family some day, I have always known that being a mom is in the plans for me. I think people would say that I am a good listener, generous, and kind. I try to be open and honest. I like to have fun, whether that is going to a play, a movie, a sporting event, go and figure it out later, or staying home. I need someone to bring me out of my shell. I am quiet and reserved at first, but I think once you get to know me, my sense of humor comes out. I am a good friend, I tend to take care of the people around me. I am looking forward to someone to take care of, and who will take care of me for a change. I don't mean in a "what about me", high maintanence kind of way, but someone who mutually cares about making the person they are with happy and thinking about others before themselves. I used to be a teacher, and am currently going back to school to be a school counselor. I like to support kids in their endeavors. As a teacher, I tried to go to sporting events and choir performances, etc to show my support for them and for their hard work in their accomplishments. I really appreciate others and their talents. Religion is important to me. I want to go to church more often and I want to learn more about my religion. My belief is there, but my knowledge is still in the learning stages. I want a man who shares my values.
My match would like to travel even if it is just for a day or for the weekend, but also like to stay home and relax. He would like to go to the movies, but wouldn't mind staying home and snuggling up with a video. He would be kind, caring, and funny. He would be motivated in his job, but not let it overtake him. He wouldn't be afraid of public displays of affection, but know when too much is too much. He would support me in my career goals, but not mind if I want to be a stay at home mom in the future. Everyone has that one special person out there who when you look them in the eye, put your arm around them, or sit next to them, you just fit. I hope to find that someday.
I have had such little time for fun lately, but I like to spend time with people. I like theater, movies, drives,I would love to learn more about cooking, wine tasting.
I am currently working towards a Masters in education counseling and I would like to either work in a high school or college as a counselor.
My mom is Swedish and French and a little Native American, my dad is Hawaiian and Japanese. I look like my mother's side of the family, but have a little Hawaiian in the eyes.
Favorite things, huh? I am having a very love/hate relationship with coffee lately. I like Mexican and Chinese food, and I like Sushi if someone else orders for me (new sushi eater). I love Reality TV, I like to think that I could do it myself. I like to read books that have a mystery to figure out, not just romance. I like most music, for the Bay Area, I like to listen to KLLC or KMIX or the Christian stations.
I would want to go somewhere where we could talk, out for coffee or dinner. I wouldn't necessarily want to spend a first date at the movies, you don't get to know someone that way. I am usually game for just about anything, but I reserve the right to veto.
