I won't be the perfect match for everyone, and that's ok. I am not the cookie- cutter picture of perfection for every guy, and that's ok too... But my hope is that the guy I am supposed to be with thinks I am imperfectly perfect for him. :-)
In March 2016, I changed careers and transitioned from mortgage to insurance. It's been a big adjustment but I really love where I am and what I'm doing. I've been focused on work, and now it's time to find the right person for me.
Please be a grown up, and please be over 33. Please be respectful. Please be looking for an actual relationship. Please be sane. Please think I'm funny. Ok that one is negotiable. Please, and thank you! :-)
I'm not easy to date-- I'll admit it. I'm busy, and work full time with a current later shift (off work about 730), and the occasional Saturday or Sunday. This means I am a planner-- I live by a calendar. I'm on the phone at work all day, so I tend to text more often than some might want getting to know someone. If that's an issue, that's fine. Maybe we aren't a match :-)
I try to accept people as they are, since that's how I want people to treat me. I try... I am not always successful. I have changed a lot in my life in the last few years and I am so much happier and healthier. My faith is important to me, and I am working on improving my health by eating better and working out. It's definitely a long road- no quick fixes, and I'd hope I can find someone who is supportive, but accepts me even if I never lose another pound.
**I'm stressing this now: I'm a plus size woman. Please do not message me expecting something I'm not. I'm under construction, currently down 45 pounds... a work in progress.**
Education is important. "Wyd" is not a word, nor is it a valid abbreviation, acronym or short hand-- seriously someone tried to tell me "it's like what's taught in college"... uh, no.
Guys- stop posting profile pictures with the biggest watch you own on your wrist in something that resembles the thinker pose. It's not original, and it's the male equivalent of duck lips.
What sets me apart from the sea of other women on here? Hm. I know what I want, and I know what I won't settle for any longer. I dont like playing games or guys who are themselves players. I am not going to fight for your attention. If you like someone, why can't you just say that?
I may have included additional hobbies to see if anyone actually reads this stuff. I'm not sure anyone will actually read this far to find this... #whittlingrocks #savetheunicorns
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Coffee? The best dates, first or otherwise, don't have to be expensive. Can I get to know you? Can we talk & flirt? Is it laid back and relaxed, and not weird or forced? If yes- then I am good just about anywhere, as long as it's a public place.
