Hi There :)
Hopefully my pictures have intrigued you enough to read my profile! Come on, we all know the pictures are what is looked at first when browsing PoF :-P
So you want to know more about me? I could go on for days about who I am, but I will try to sum it up in a nutshell for my profile. I am generally a happy person, I smile and laugh A LOT. Sometimes at what other people say or do, sometimes it is at myself. Sometimes I literally laugh out loud at something that I’m looking at on the internet, then hope no one in the office heard me.
I work for a Property Management company that deals strictly with rental homes (I am not an on-site apartment manager). I love my job. I love the office I work in and the feeling of gratitude I get when I help a tenant with a maintenance request or help an owner get their home rented. I am a people pleaser. It worries me if someone is not happy with my assistance, even though I know I did everything I could to help.
Going along with pleasing people, I am reliable and a friend that everyone can count on. Need help tearing down a deck? I am there. Need help moving? Count me in. I like helping people if I can, and I don’t mind getting down and dirty. I pull my own weeds, and camping or fishing doesn’t bother me a bit-in fact, I quite enjoy the latter.
I tend to keep honest, reliable people around me, and remove the undependable people from my life. This makes for less drama and a less stressful environment. The only stress I tend to have these days is just the busyness of work. As for honesty, I am 99.5% honest; the 0.05% is when I will give the typical female answer of “fine” if I am mad :-P But my face always gives away everything; I cannot hide my emotions.
I am a very curious person. I love knowing how things work, why things are the way they are. It is hard for me to accept change until I fully understand why it is needed. I’ve built a computer before, put model Mustangs together, and built all my own IKEA furniture!
Despite my body type, I like to be active. I enjoy hiking or biking, or just taking a stroll around the block. Generally, I am always on the move. It is hard for me to just sit and watch TV, but I will gladly snuggle down for a movie :)
What I am looking for is a guy who is stable and reliable, not someone that I can solely depend on, but someone who I feel we both add 50% to make a whole. I have a past that makes me long for stability being that I never had it when I was younger. It doesn’t mean I need fixing, as I am strong enough by myself, but it means that I want to feel secure in a relationship. I know the hurt of cheating and would never put that on anyone.
I have a daughter who is 4 years old and is my heart in carnate. There are generally set days when I do and do not have her, so it is possible to date. Also, I will keep her out of my dating until I feel the time is right. I will say I do not want more children, but I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason!
Other quick items:
-For dating, just putting it out there that I have never been attracted to African American or Hispanic men. For everyone else, please DO NOT contact me for a hookup; I will not respond and it's honestly a waste of time. Also, I will not go back to your house on a first date nor have you over to my house. I will meet for the first few dates in PUBLIC places.
-I have 3 tattoos (all can be covered up) and have my ears and tongue pierced.
-For housing, I live by myself with no roommates. It's just me, my girl, and my 2 cats.
-For sports, I like playing Baseball/Softball or Football, but I really only enjoy watching Football on TV. I follow the Raiders because my family are huge fans, but I could be swayed towards any team :-P
-For music, I enjoy mostly Country or Hip-Hop, but listen to just about anything. My Pandora account includes artists such as Rascal Flatts, 3 Days Grace, Journey, Don Henley, Jay-Z, Linkin Park, Tim McGraw, The Eagles, Ke$ha, Boyz II Men, etc. Typically I listen to one style of music for awhile, then switch when it gets old. However, Classic Rock will never get old for me!
-For interests, they include anything that gets me out of the house! Don't get me wrong, I love a quiet night in, but I've been cooped up too long lately :-P I love long drives, bonfires on the beach, dinner out, movies (theater or at home), checking out new places, flying, boating, hanging out with friends, dancing, playing pool or chess (though I lose more often than not), roller-coasters, zoos, camping, and much more!
