Hey there. Thanks for taking a look at my tiny cornerstone of the internet dating world. My profile picture may have reeled you in, but I hope you're willing to take a glance at how I describe myself, and maybe you'll want to find out more about me for yourself.
My name is Elaine - it's a pleasure to meet your acquaintance, stranger. To date, I consider myself pretty well put together: I have a stable job; my own vehicle; a cell phone; and a place of my own that I share with my cat. Even though I am a responsible adult in those ways, I still have not completely grown-up in others.
The walls of my bedroom are plastered with various posters from anime, favorite video games, ones that were given as special gifts at midnight releases for certain movies, and so on. Action figures of characters from my favorite video games, television shows (anime and others alike), and movies also are displayed in a variety of places along the room. I like showing off my little geekdom to fellow nerd-aficionados and it grows every time I travel to a convention, every birthday and Christmas, or am given a gift at those aforementioned midnight releases. I'm not sure I will ever stop loving the intergalactic worlds of Star Trek and Star Wars, the breathtaking journey of Lord of the Rings, the web-slinging adventures of Spiderman (my favorite Marvel superhero), and the drama (or comedy) of animes I enjoy. I wouldn't have it any other way. =)
I currently work at a local grocery store; however, I'm ambitiously trying to get a job as a certified pharmacy technician. Right now, I'm in the process of becoming a volunteer at the pharmacy at a local hospital so I may receive on-the-job training and experience with sacrifice of not getting a paycheck. (Hey, if that's the only way I can become started in this field, then that's what I'll do.)
In my spare time, I generally lounge around the house, messing around on my Kindle while a Netflix marathon of a random show is playing in the background. Once in awhile, I feel the urge to pick up a gaming controller of sorts and dive into the Kingdom Hearts or Final Fantasy universe, or open my 3DS and clean up my town in Animal Crossing and develop friendships with my neighbors. When there is an MMO that I thoroughly enjoy finally released, I will be on my computer playing that too.
Oh yeah. I also tumble: http://laneynpoe.tumblr.com/
I'm the kind of person that seems to fall in the middle of the 'approachable' spectrum. On the one hand, I notice that a lot of people ask me 'What's wrong' or 'You seem tired' - this could be true since I'm generally at work when I'm asked these questions and I guess my emotions of 'I really don't want to be here right now' are all over my face. On the other hand, customers, and people I am within earshot of while out and about, will strike up random conversations with me as if I have been their best friend for years. (That's actually how I met two of my really good friends)
Lately, I've been getting compliments on my hair, a lot. It's dyed a dark red right now and I, too, think it looks really nice on me. I've been told it highlights my facial features and eyes.
I'm a pretty big girl and, oftentimes, I do not mind that I am. If you don't want to get to know me just because I don't fit in your skewed perception of beauty, then I do not want to know you anyway. You're missing out on an awesome friend, fantastic girlfriend, amazing lover, and the most comfortable person-pillow.
But really. I'm harmless. I may have this 'resting **** face' people keep talking about lately, but all I want is for someone to talk to me - that brief moment of acknowledgment. I like to think of myself as a pretty cool kid; it's just a matter of meeting the person that's willing to give me a chance to figure that out for themselves - friendships and relationships alike. There's so much I can talk about and teach. I may even make you laugh, possibly a lot. You just never know. =)
