I'm funny, smart and fun to be with - a little eccentric. I make lifelong friends and am very loyal to them. I'm looking for a down-to-earth, traditional girl who enjoys spending time with family and friends - someone who thinks Sunday morning political roundtables are at least as entertaining as a the ball game later that day (that may be asking a little much of you). A former news editor and reporter, I'm a natural born writer who can put into words just about anything. If you like the "walk on the beach" thing that's OK but I'd rather go swimming. Rules of the road: If your profile is written in all caps, keep browsing. If you can't get someone to take a nice picture of you and instead post trashy, narcissistic mirror shots of your ghetto self, look elsewhere.
