This is like a social resume for an interview of who wants to date you. Super awkward, but unfortunately necessary for online dating site. Hard to paint yourself in an objective, positive light while not coming across as vain or conceited.
Here I go. . .
I am on here to maybe find "the one". It only takes one :) I can't wait to meet my best friend and take care of them the rest of my life. So I was brave and swallowed my pride and signed up! I've heard many success stories from online dating so why not try it?
Quick disclaimer though: I'm simply not interested in perpetual messaging back and forth, building virtual relationships. I'm interested in meeting people and forming face to face relationships. For me, this site simply serves as the medium to facilitate dating. Actual dating. If messaging and "flirting" back and forth forever is your thing, I'm not your woman :)
A little bit about me:
I consider myself a fun, outgoing, thoughtful, opinionated, and loyal person. I am a driven person with lots of ambition, but a procrastinator at the same time. I'm a night owl and stay up late, even when I'm tired, but I love my bed. I enjoy sports and being active. I like to swim, run, hike, rock climb, play tennis, soccer, and basketball. I may not be very good at the last two, but I enjoy playing!
I love music - I sing and play the piano and have my whole life. Music is a huge part of who I am. I'll admit that I'm a total political junkie. I rock at giving back rubs and want to go to massage therapy school one day. I have won awards for my spooning abilities. I can be ridiculous, funny, and totally spontaneous. I love to travel and do so as much as I can convince my boss to let me.
I can also be serious and intense and am very passionate. I enjoy great conversation about deep things. I sometimes operate outside the boundaries of social norms, just to see how people react. I'm gregarious and quite sassy and sarcastic. Give me a room of adults and a room of kids, and I'll choose the kids. I can't wait to be a mom. I love shoes and have way too many. I love to dress fabulously. I broke a dude's nose once - and yep, there's video.
I am an honest person - I don't beat around the bush to communicate and I say what I feel. I appreciate people who are real and down to earth, so I try to be the same. No false advertising.
I have learned that happiness is not something that happens to happen to you. Rather, it's a choice; an attitude. So I try to choose happy everyday and look for the positive. Every person has so much good in them, so when I look for it, I find it. And I believe that life is so much more fulfilling when I have and show gratitude.
I have a strong testimony and am completely converted to the gospel. I attend the temple often am true and faithful to the sacred covenants I have made. I am determined to stay that way the rest of my life. I love the Lord - He is the only guarantee we have in life and I'm so grateful for it.
