Hello and thank you for looking.
I'm an honest woman with a wicked (often sarcastic) sense of humor. I never know what to write in this area, but what I do put in here is true and at times blunt. I just don't believe it's ethical to waste another's time or mislead folks.
So here it goes:
I am highly educated, having earned 3 university-level, STEM-ilk degrees (each varying in their level of difficulty/requirements). So if you're one of those guys claiming to want an inelligent gal, I do meet that criteria. That said, I do not have an educational requirement in a potential date. Rather, "lifestyle choices" indicated in your profile will largely determine whether or not I reply to any message you send.
I am originally from Pennsylvania and of French/German descent. While I am not a native Texan, I have spent a large part (~ 20 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, which I love to do.
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 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. In addition, I am a movie buff, watching pretty much anything except musicals and animie. 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, excluding rap. Mainly, I listen to rock'n'roll, but only a few of its sub-genres. My preferred sub-genre doesn't lend itself in the least to partners dancing. I have no interest in going clubbing or boot scootin'; so I am not the gal 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 looking for:
I would like to find an honest, unmarried, fun-loving, childless, 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 (BMI within 18.5-24.9).
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.
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 neurosurgeon. Should you fall into this category, please look elsewhere, as there is no "Sam I am" out there who can make me change my mind on this subject. 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.
If you are looking for someone to help you financially support your extended family (parents, siblings, cousins, adult children, etc), please look elsewhere. I didn't spend all this time on my education and career to support someone else's tribe.
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.
