About Lisa
Being an English teacher, I enjoy reading, writing, and movies that have an interesting plot. However, I also like to let my hair down and go out and play pool or dance. I'm comfortable in many different social situations. I can play pool with the locals one weekend and get dressed up for the ballet the next. I'm versatile. (Contrary to what you might think from my pictures, I'm not a barfly. There aren't a lot of choices for a woman like me in a small town. I'm not fond of getting my picture taken, but I usually feel like I look pretty good when I go out and play pool. I could post pictures of myself in my classroom, attending a play, working in my yard, sitting at home in sweatpants and a sweatshirt, etc., to show more variety, but that would mean I would have to be much more fond of posing for the camera.)

My life has taken some interesting turns, and I am learning that I never know what it has to offer or what might be taken away. Being a planner is part of my nature, but I understand the importance of living each day and not trying to plan or control what comes next. Don't get me wrong, I can still plan with a vengeance when it is necessary and appropriate. I'm organized but not rigid, plan oriented but flexible... In answer to the what-are-you-looking-for questions: I have a basic idea of what I want, but if I am too rigid in my expectations, I might miss something unexpected and equally as satisfying as what I thought I wanted.

Prince said it best:

Somebody's somebody
Somewhere, someone
It's 2 o'clock in the morning and I just can't sleep
Outside the rain is pourin', I'm lonely as can be
Maybe 2night'll be different than the nights before
I need 2 feel someone beside me, I can't be alone no more

2night I wanna be somebody's somebody
2night I wanna belong 2 someone (Someone)
2night I wanna be somebody's somebody
2night I want somebody that'll do it 'til the job gets done (Oh yeah)

With that in mind, I wish there were another choice for intent. Most of us hope for a relationship at some point in the future, as do I, but that doesn't mean I'm looking to hook a husband. Some dates can result in finding a friend with whom I can go to wineries, plays, etc. even if there is no romantic connection. Some dates are complete disasters that result in the desire never to see the other person again. Some dates can be intriguing enough to result in a second date. One never knows, so I hesitate to say I have the same intent each time I meet someone.

I've been a foster mother, a big sister with Big Brothers/Big Sisters, a stepmom, a biological mom, and a middle school and high school teacher, so I have had a multitude of experiences that require good interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. I truly believe "the unexamined life is not worth living." Most of all it is my sense of humor that has gotten me through the tough times. Even my students think I'm funny...most of the time. They also say I'm tough but fair. When I'm not there, they miss me, and that, I believe, speaks volumes.

Don't worry about the red pen, though, I usually don't whip it out on the first date.

A humorous poem I wrote about internet dating:

So many men, so little time.
It’s like the Wal-Mart of dating.
She had to hurry while still in her prime.
But how should she go about rating?

One man was posing with a large fish.
She did not point the mouse and click.
He could not fulfill her wish.
He was probably compensating for a small…

Flick went her wrist as she moved on.
She saw short men, tall men, fat and skinny.
If she kept looking, she would find “the one.”
Surely some were smart, if not many.

To find “the one” she would search near and far.
She would persevere; she would be brave.
This one loves his motorcycle and car.
Another is looking for a sex slave.

She read many profiles, saw many pics.
This one was bald, another one handsome.
If she kept going, she would learn the tricks.
But could any of these men make her…

“Come on, girl,” she spoke aloud.
“From this website you must depart.
You won’t find your man where boys abound.”
Mr. Right is not on the shelf at Wal-Mart.

If you've read this far, perhaps you'll take my quiz...

"21 Things I Want In a Lover" by Alanis Morissette

Do you derive joy when someone else succeeds?
Do you not play dirty when engaged in competition?
Do you have a big intellectual capacity
But know that it alone does not equate wisdom?

Do you see everything as an illusion
But enjoy it even though you are not of it?
Are you both masculine and feminine?
Politically aware and don't believe in capital punishment?

These are 21 things that I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs but qualities that I prefer
Do you derive joy from diving in and seeing that
Loving someone can actually feel like freedom?
Are you funny? a la self-deprecating
Like adventure and have many formed opinions?

These are 21 things that I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs but qualities that i prefer
I figure I can describe it since I have a choice in the matter
These are 21 things I choose to choose in a lover

I'm in no hurry I could wait forever
I'm in no rush 'cause I like being solo
No worries and certainly no pressure in the meantime
I'll live like there's no tomorrow

Are you uninhibited in bed more than three times a week
Up for being experimental?
Are you athletic? Are you thriving in a job that helps your brother?
Are you not addicted?
... curious and communicative?

Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Don't take me for coffee. I despise the stuff. A glass of red wine would be much better. Let's not go see a movie on the first date. How can we get to know each other if we don't have an opportunity to interact? I like surprises and unique experiences. That doesn't mean, though, that I want to go sky diving. Italian food, good conversation and a few glasses of wine are never a bad idea. But I'm open. Surprise me.
