Your first impression of me? Hmm. I just took my son to the airport, today, to send him back to Phoenix, where he lives with his dad. He is the love and light of my life - my son, that is. ;) I am intelligent, witty, and fairly sarcastic. I never take myself seriously. Life is about laughing - at yourself especially. I am a grammar freak. My mom was an English major for part of her college career, and, I have a writing intensive major. So, alas, this is what you get. I am tiny, very petite, so, if you are looking for a woman who has legs that go on forever, I am not your girl.
What else? My favorite foods are cheeseburgers and fries. No sushi, please, though I have tried to make myself love it for years, as it's everyone's favorite. So sorry. It was a valiant effort. I love the outdoors - if that means drinking on the patio. ;) Other than that, I'm sort of a cruise ship type of girl. Been on many, and would live on one if I could just make it as a dancer in their shows....
I love to decorate. I love to read, though, in all honesty, it's been far too long. My favorite book is, "The Kite Runner." I have read it several times. My biggest goal of life was to go to med school. I took pre-meds for years, but, was horrible at them. I have never been a bad student, so, this upset me greatly. I suppose it wasn't meant to be. However, if I had it to do all over again, I would have hung in there. Men with no college education will get nowhere with me. I'm just being honest. I don't want to waste your time.
I also want to say that yes, my pictures always include others. I'm not the type to take them of only me. I would like to be completely clear. I am not the one in the red dress in that particular picture. She is my best friend of 20+ years and is, indeed, gorgeous - however, not me. That's a deal breaker to many, so, I just want to be upfront.
I am the oldest of 7 kids, and my family is incredibly religious. I'm the black sheep. But, I am true to myself always and never veer from my beliefs. I do not, however, want to give the impression that I don't adore my family. I do. They are my foundation and I would do anything for them.
Much more to know, but, that will come with time...
My first date would be totally low-key. I want simple. I would go on and on as this suggests, but, that's the bottom line. I don't love fancy, superficial or over the top. I am a very what you see is what you get sort of a girl. I'm honest. If you want to know what I think, ask me. BUT, I will tell you the truth.
