...and 90% how I react to it."
I'm here to find a great girl; someone who thinks I'm great too. I love my life and want a best friend to share it with. I like my job and try to be great at it. I'm big on self improvement and always try to do what I believe is right. I value communication. I want my girlfriend to feel comfortable talking to me about anything. She's fun, witty, and knows how to make me laugh. She's a smart, loyal, genuinely nice girl with a big heart.
I work for three local school districts as a substitute teacher (I previously taught 2nd grade, but had to resign for health reasons). Teaching is something I'm good at and something I enjoy; it's definitely what I should be doing with my life. I also cashier at a local grocery store on Saturdays and during the summer.
I love being outside when the weather is nice, whether it be a walk in the park, a barbeque and some bags, or sitting around a fire with friends. I love Glacier National Park and the Smoky Mountains, and have always wanted to hike Yosemite's Mist Trail. Locally, I hike the canyons at Starved Rock year-round, and make at least one trip each year to Devil's Lake and the Chicago Botanic Garden. I also love watching Rams football and playing with my nieces.
