Hi my name is Melanie. 5'2 african american with dreads (nope not jamacian) but have had my dreads for about 12 years. :) I live in Vernon and work in East Hartford.
I am pretty much a homebody… I don't get out much. But I would like to get out more and enjoy what this area has to offer. If I'm not at home or at work I'm usually at the gym. My favorite exercise class is zumba! :-) I also lift weights. This is the healthiest I have been in years… I need somebody that understands my crazy exercising schedule. No it's not that I don't want to hang out, we just have to do it AFTER my exercise class. I'm looking for someone who is supportive of what I'm doing and doesn't try to derail me.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I use to have my first dates at the movies but then realized going to the movies was not the best way to get to know someone since you can't have a conversation!
So I think a good first date would be for drinks some where. That way we can look at each other face to face and get a sense of the each others personality.
