First and foremost, I'm not looking for a sexual relationship. I'm waiting until I'm married to have sex, so if that's something you're looking for, I'm not your girl.
I love to laugh and be silly. My sense of humor is kind of unique and I think it takes some getting used to. At times, it can be rather deadpan and sarcastic, but also goofy and off-color and playful, if that makes any sense.
I love to read and write (and I'm working on developing my writing style. One day I hope to be a published author) and I dabble in online role-play games (Harry Potter, to be exact). Yes, I'm a dork, and I love that about myself. I like a few anime and manga, and I doodle on occasion. I played the flute for eight years, but stopped once I started college- it was a hobby, something I enjoyed doing, but not something that I was talented enough for at the collegiate level. Peanut butter, Italian food, and ice cream are my weaknesses and food is definitely a good way to get to my heart. Proper grammar, being dorky, and intelligence are also good ways to gain my affection.
I like to try new foods and love learning about different cultures. I'm in love with all things British and Roman, and right now I'm interested in Indian culture, as well as other Asian cultures. England is the first country I want to visit and I would love to live there some day (once my student loans are paid off, anyway, so that I am no longer financially obligated to the States). Ice cream is my weakness, and so is Italian food. I'm a grammar nerd and notice literary devices in everyday conversation. I like to think that I'm an intellectual and that I can be deep at times, but I'm certainly not a world-renown philosopher. Other than all that, I really am quite laid-back and easy-going, patient, and open-minded.
I'm a Christian, but I am not judgmental. In a nutshell, it is my belief that Jesus died for our sins and that as long as we accept him as our Savior, then we do not have to live in fear of being punished for our "sins," but are free to live our lives and be ourselves. I would love to elaborate more on my particular beliefs, but now is not the time nor place.
As far as movies go, I love horror, romantic comedies, foreign, intellectual, and a few action flicks. Books: I like to read fantasy, mystery, romance, plays, and poetry.
I might have a fear of intimacy and/or commitment. I do apologize for that in advance. I'm slow to trust, so please be respectful of that. Believe it or not, I've never been in a relationship, and because of that it's hard for me to believe that people have genuine intentions and don't want to just get in my pants (which you're not going to, by the way). Once you've gained my trust, though, I'm a loyal and devoted friend, and I'm very passionate about everything I do.
Right now I'm balancing two jobs. I have a full-time job during the week and a part-time job on the weekends. Sadly, that leaves little room for a social life. I'm sorry if I'm making this difficult, but keeping a roof over my head is my top priority.
If I haven't scared you away, contact me! My bark is much worse than my bite, so do ignore my cynicism.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something other than dinner and a movie. Dinner is perfectly acceptable, but isn't a date about getting to know someone? I don't think that's really possible during a movie unless we were watching it and making our own commentary throughout it (which I would be fine with if it was a crappy movie, because mocking lame movies is pretty much one of the most fun things ever).
Also, I know "age isn't anything but a number," but I do want to say that please, no one over 30. Despite my quirkiness, I'm a little shy and I would feel comfortable around someone closer to my age, not twice it, no offense.
