Friends first whatever else happens after that could just be icing.
I am a mom to an awesome 3 year old. I am not looking for a step dad for my kid but you must like kids, that is kind of a prerequisite, though you won't be meeting her for at least many months, otherwise that would be creepy (notice the lack of pictures of her on my profile).
I am a student, I am trying to get my certificate in radiologic technology. I'm working on it, It's taking a while.
I might live in Chicopee but I am from New Haven and lived in Baltimore for 3 years. I am a city girl but I do like a good hike now and then. I like taking my daughter to the park on nice days or out to fairs. We get A LOT of ice cream. I am pretty boring most of the time on a week night, I pretty much just hang out with my kid. We do stuff, we play, get more ice cream, in the winter we make snow men. I'm trying to get her into crafts.
I waitress. It sucks. I hate it. It makes dating incredibly difficult because I have the exact opposite schedule from most people.
I can cook a decent meal. I wouldn't say I enjoy cooking. I'm no Betty Crocker but I can put a tasty usually healthy meal on the table. If I had the money I'd probably eat sushi, Indian or Mexican food every day. I'm pretty adventurous when it comes to cuisine. Falafel is awesome.
I'm a beer snob. I'm also a music snob. Descendents, Refused, Fugazi, Death Cab, Modest Mouse, Wilco...if you haven't heard of them it's ok as long as you don't like country or exclusively hard core rap or the Grateful dead (I'd rather gouge out my ear drums with a blunt object).
I'm pretty funny and I'm pretty smart. That sounds totally conceited, sorry/not sorry. I like to make people laugh and I like someone who can make me laugh. I prefer dark, dry, witty and totally un PC. I like Bill hicks. I like art. Most art. I'd probably enjoy a trip to the art museum over a hike. True story. I am also incredibly low maintenance, I get my hair cut about twice a year. I wear strictly flip flops in the summer unless I dress up to go out.
I have amazing friends "they say friends are the new family of the 21st century" (know that quote and you get a point). Usually on a Friday night after work you will find me at my best friends house sitting around her kitchen table laughing over many beers, at least one person will have a guitar. That is the perfect time.
Let's see...about the person I'm looking for.
You must be able to not only speak but write a full sentence using appropriate punctuation, spelling, grammar and capitals. An lol here and there is ok, but don't over do it (knowing the difference between your and you're will make it or break it).
I need someone to match wits with me. Someone smart and funny. Someone who can help to drive the conversation. It can't go one way or the other, we both must be engaged. I am very liberal (and very non-religious) but my prospective mate is allowed their own opinion as long as they can back it up. A heated debate is welcome as long as it does not turn into arguing. I would rather someone sticks by their morals, values and opinions even if I disagree with them. But compromise must of course be at the end.
I am not into sports, if you are that's ok. If you're checking the score on your phone every 5 seconds we probably won't gel. I missed that meeting. I am also not into hunting (I was a vegetarian for almost 10 years) and I don't care how big your truck is. I only recently found out what mud bogging is and I'm not interested. I am still unclear about turkey shoots. Like I said I'm from the city.
I do not want a bad boy. Not even a reformed bad boy. You are probably not reformed. They never are. I would like someone sensitive and caring, who thinks of others first. Who at least offers to pay.
I will probably (most likely) not message you back if you have any pictures on your profile of you not wearing a shirt, or pictures taken in a bathroom mirror, especially a public bathroom mirror (gross) or throwing gang signs or with duck face (possibly grosser on a dude than a picture taken in a public bathroom). Also, I'm not trying to date anyone who lives more than a half hour away from me. It's just not logical.
