Before reading any further, please know this: If you cannot spell properly or speak correctly and say things like "ax" instead of "ask", "dis" instead of "this", "jus" instead of "just" and so on, please move along. I'd like to be able to actually have a real conversation with someone.
Side Bar: I do have a few extra pounds on my body. I have a full figure, but I'm working on that. I lost myself along the way the last couple years and I've started to find my way back to who I am. I am eating healthy and working out trying to get back what I lost. Please respect that I am not some willowy figured girl. If how my body is now may bother you, please don't bother with messaging me. I've already had men disappoint me in that aspect.
I am a country girl at heart. I love to go horse back riding and, if there's a truck involved, going mudding. I am a die hard animal lover! I have two big dogs (the third passed away a year ago) that are all rescues. Being a HUGE animal lover I volunteered with the SPCA for ten years and with the Rainbow Center for 2. Along with being such a big animal love I also have a deep love/appreciation for classic cars, hot rods, and motorcycles of all sorts! And when it comes to music I like a little bit of everything, but I do love the classics! For instance I am a die hard lover/fan of Motley Crue. I also love AC/DC, Kiss, Van Halen, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent, Guns and Roses,etc.(My dad likes to joke that I was born in the wrong decade =p) And not only do I love just the classics, I am also a die hard country music lover. Guess that ties into the whole being from the south thing lol. Also, I grew up around a lot of family, so family is very important to me. And though my parents only had two together, I am the youngest of six. I have four older siblings from my dads first marriage. Growing up without many girls in the family I am not afraid to get my hands a little dirty lol. My dad and I used to play catch and he showed me how to work a little bit on our classic mustang. I'm no pro, but I can hold my own in a conversation about older cars. I also was a dancer for roughly 12 years. I did all types of dance ranging from lyrical to tap and jazz, to clogging and dance teams. But ballet was my favorite.
When it comes to the average everyday stuff like hanging out and Not having to be at work, I love to just sit back and listen to music or curl up with a really good book. You could even say that I'm kind of a book nerd. =p Or if I'm not reading you can probably find me out with my friends at the nearest starbucks or watching one of my shows on tv. I'm completely obsessed with The Walking Dead and more recently Into The Badlands. You can just ask me about the other stuff I may be in to. :-)
Relationship wise I don't play games and I don't do the whole drama scene though I am not unaware that sometimes life can be a bit unpredictable. I don't want a player who's going to mess with my head and cause unnecessary stress. I am hoping that I can find someone who is as dedicated as I am in my passions and just as much of an animal lover as me who isn't afraid to reach for the stars. I do appreciate the more old fashioned ways. i.e. Holding open doors, paying for dinner on the first date, opening the car door, etc.
Someday before truly settling down with anyone, so probably once I've finished College, I really want to travel. All over! Mostly I would love to go to Ireland! my great great grandparents migrated from there so heritage wise I am 95% Irish =) other than that I would just love to see all of Europe and go to Australia! But first, I must explore our own great nation =p I've only left the east coast twice and once was to go to California for a short internship and the second was to Seattle for my best friends almost wedding lol =p
"People say I have a distorted lens, I think I see things as they really are." - Nikki Sixx
"I don't want a knight in shining armor. Just a man in boots and plaid" - I don't know who said this, but it's something i do look for. Just a simple, stress free, laid back kind of guy.
Marylin Monroe once said, "Real love is the man who can thrill you just by kissing your forehead, or smiling into your eyes. " And I believe that to be true.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
I'd prefer to get together first before persuing a date like getting a cup of coffee or something and getting to know each other a bit to see if there's any kind of connection. and if there is, maybe go get a drink or something simple like that.
