Here is a little about me: I am a first year teacher who LOVES her job. I spend a great deal of my time doing things for work, as well as volunteering, so I do not have a lot of free time. However, I do know how to sit back and enjoy life, when I do have the time. I appreciate good conversation, proper grammar, and sarcasm. Dry humor is usually the best kind. My friends would describe me as quirky, outgoing, awesome (maybe that's my own description... confident may be more accurate) and animated. It's hard to hide my excitement for most aspects of life (even the seemingly mundane and unimportant).
Family is incredibly important to me and I love to attend our family gatherings. Being around people is something that I enjoy and look forward to. However, some alone time is always needed, as well. Lastly, I am a very independent person who usually likes to try things my own way first. This does not mean that I can't compromise, I just like to do my own thing, too.
About you: I would hope that you are free-spirited, but can also keep your feet on the ground. You should be driven to achieve your goals, be able to handle sarcasm (and reciprocate with your own), and like children and pets. I have a lot of demands, I know. This one seems silly, but I am strongly against hunting. I do not condemn hunters in any way, I just cannot be with one.
We'll call that good for now. Oh, and I really live in Austin, but POF insists on changing it to Andyville. Apparently, that is nearby?
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Something calm enough that we could talk and get to know one another. Movies are not ideal because there really isn't the opportunity to explore each other's thoughts.
