updated 1/2/14,: I'm not easy to date-- I'll admit it. I'm busy, and work full time with an additional part time gig that is sporadic. I'm also not someone who talks on the phone all the time. I'm on the phone at work all day, so I tend to text more often than some might want. If that's an issue, that's fine: maybe aren't a match :-)
Guys, please be serious about a relationship- I'm not looking for a hookup! I am far from desperate. I'm still hopeful I can find "the one", but it seems like I've kissed more than my share of frogs looking for a prince, or a guy who isn't looking to just get laid! I mean, I'm no prude, but guys I clearly have more self respect than many of you are used to dealing with.
Having said that, I try to accept people as they are, since that's how I want people to treat me. I have changed a lot in my life in the last year and I am so much happier and healthier. My faith is important to me, as I have gone back to church after being away for almost 14 years, and I am working on improving my health by eating better and working out. It's definitely a long road- no quick fixes, and I'd hope I can find someone who is supportive, but accepts me even if I never lose another pound.
**I'm stressing this now: I'm a plus size woman. Over this year, 2014, I hope to lose approximately 1/3 of my body weight. I am not looking for a trainer or a father figure to tell me what to do. It's about making better choices, being more active, and doing so constantly. Please do not message me expecting something I'm not. I'm under construction... a work in progress.**
What sets me apart from the sea of other women on here? Hm. I know what I want, and I know what I won't settle for any longer. I dont like playing games or guys who are themselves players. I am not going to fight for your attention. If you like someone, why can't you just say that?
I won't be the perfect match for everyone, and that's ok. I am not the cookie- cutter picture of perfection for every guy, and that's ok too... But my hope is that the guy I am supposed to be with thinks I am imperfectly perfect for him. :-)
The best dates, first or otherwise, don't have to be expensive. Can I get to know you? Can we flirt? Is it laid back and relaxed, and not weird or forced? If yes- then I am good just about anywhere.
