I thought I'd give this whole online dating thing a try, though I'll admit I'm pretty skeptical.
So, hey there. I'm Monica. I think I'm worth knowing, but then I'm a little biased. Here goes nothing:
I'm a very low-key person. I love spending time with my friends and I'm really close to my family. I hate drama and love a guy who can make me laugh. I love the Seahawks. I'm a diehard fan and no one is ever going to convince me they're not the best team around.
I appreciate good food (it doesn't mean expensive, just delicious) and good beer. I'm actually trying to stop eating out so much, but I'm not having a lot of luck. I may love good food, but I'm not great at making it!
Fair warning: I'm really, really competitive. My friends won't even play board games with me anymore. I'm working on that!
Also, as to the make-up free picture (because I seem to be getting a lot of comments about it) - I figure I may as well be honest about what I really look like. If I actually meet someone and it works out I'd hate for them to roll over some morning and run screaming for the hills. In all honesty though, you're most likely to find me in no makeup with my hair in a ponytail. I love getting dressed up, but I'm also a firm believer in being comfortable and just being me. Besides, I'd rather hit my snooze button for 20 minutes in the morning than wake up and paint my face. :)
***** Okay, as I'm going through this, I have some serious pet peeves about this site. It's probably going to come out kind of snarky, but it's driving me crazy! If you're going to message me, PLEASE say something more than "hey" or any variation of that. Tell me about yourself, ask me a question, say something funny, anything. Please don't ask me to come to your house, or get high with you, or have a threesome. If that's what I was going for, I'd be on craigslist. Or at a bar.
Your profile is not a text message. Would it kill you to actually spell things out?
Also, do none of you have friends to take pictures of you? If all else fails, pretend to be a tourist and ask a stranger. Though I guess it's good to know some of you have clean bathrooms...
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates are hard. As much as an unusual or creative date is great, sometimes just grabbing a drink is the best way to meet the first time and see if there is any interest.
