Hello and thank you for looking.
I'm a highly educated and honest woman with a great sense of humor.
I am originally from Pennsylvania and of French/German descent. While I am not a native Texan, I have spent a large part (~ 19 years) of my life in south/central Texas. Due to a great employment opportunity, I returned to south central Texas after a decade of living in the Midwest (Madison, WI and Chicago, IL). Currently, I am a civil servant within the Department of Defense, using my chemistry knowledge in the forensic and legal arenas. I have a very interesting job which affords me ampIe opportunity to travel.
I have never been married and I have no children. My body parts are all natural and ink free (although I have no problem with tatts and/or piercings which are tastefully placed). I live a simple, drama-free life and am often free to do things within short notice. I have spent a considerable amount of time completing my education, having earned 3 university level STEM-ilk degrees (each differing in their level of difficulty/requirements). I make a decent living and am buying my own home. I am not looking for someone to support me, or someone to "bleed dry" with expensive gift demands.
My interests include: reading, films, working out, live music,traveling, dining out, visiting bookstores, museums and doing social/cultural/sporting activities in Texas. Weather permitting, I enjoy doing outdoor activities. The only sport I follow is hockey (Pens fan) although I am familiar with the rules of other major sports. I am a voracious reader, reading just about anything. I don't watch reality TV, preferring to watch documentaries and educational TV programs. I don't do the bar scene and essentially don't drink alcohol...though I have no issue with people who regularly imbibe responsibly.
Musical preferences: Basically, I can tolerate just about anything. Mainly, I listen to rock'n'roll, but only a few of its genres. I have no interest in going clubbing or boot scootin'; so I am not the girl for you should you be looking for a dance partner.
It would be great if you share some of my interests. Perhaps, you could expose me to some new interests as well? I'm up for just about anything.
What I am (and am not) looking for:
I would like to find an honest, fun loving, childless, Caucasian (Anglo/European) guy with an excellent sense of humor who is also respectful to others. In addition, I would prefer to meet someone who also takes care of their appearance, has good hygiene, is clean-shaven and has a healthy body mass index. As long as you're a high school graduate and employed, I have no other education requirements for a potential date. That said, certain lifestyle choices indicated in your profile will largely determine if I reply or not.
If your profile indicates you're overweight/obese, it is doubtful I will reply. Having "played high school football" ages ago doesn't make your current body type "athletic" if the photographic evidence suggests otherwise (i.e. multiple chins, dunlops disease, rounder than you are tall).
If your profile indicates that you have kids of ANY age, I will not reply to you...no exceptions..not even if you're a Nobel prize winning, multi-billionaire surgeon. Given all I have achieved, both academically and professionally, I can truthfully say I would rather stay single than ever settle for a situation where my life is subject to the whims/dictates of an ex-wife/girlfriend and/or any of her progeny.
So, if you've made it this far and are interested, feel free to drop me a line.
If you're not, I wish you good luck in your search.
Furthermore, I hope you will refrain from sending me yet another chauvanistic, hate-filled diatribe, which sadly seems to be a common trait of the prideful, arrogant, entitled males located geographically close to me.
For a first "date," I prefer the low stress coffee shop style meeting. After that, I like the dinner/movie combo. Perhaps, you're a bit more creative and can surprise me?
