The one thing I am passionate about...
I am passionate about helping others. I enjoy community service projects and doing small acts of kindness. I have been known to heart-attack a friend who is feeling down and always have a listening ear. I love my job because it gives me the opportunity to help people every day with their finances.I am also passionate about learning, especially about other cultures and customs. I enjoy picking up random trivia and want to have a general knowledge of most things.
I typically spend my leisure time
I enjoy reading and am rarely far from a book. My favorite genres are historical fiction and fantasy, but I enjoy reading most anything.I also enjoy games and puzzles that stretch my mind like Scrabble, Cranium, Pictionary, Jenga, and strategy games.
The most influential person in my life has been
I am looking for someone who knows their own mind. I am very independent and have a strong will. I don't want to "wear the pants" in a relationship, but wind up doing so when the other person doesn't...i want someone who is assertive, but not controlling.
The first thing people notice about me
I am very intelligent. I some times come off as a know-it-all, but don't mean to. I enjoy good conversation and am not prone to gossip.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I just finished "The Mark of Athena" by Rick Riordan. It is the latest book in his Heros of Olympus series. I love fiction written for teenagers because it tends to be cleaner than most adult fiction these days. I also read a lot of older books as they were written in times when morals mattered. I have a list of recommended books to read when I have time, and am constantly adding new ones to the list.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- I am most thankful for my relationship with God and his Son, Jesus Christ. I owe them everything! I have not always wanted to walk down the paths they have led me to, but I have been richly blessed and seen others blessed when I follow them.
- I am thankful for my family and for close friends who are like family. They are there for me when I need them and offer me so much love and support!
- I am thankful for my job. I never thought i would enjoy working in the world of finance, but 6 years later, I still love my job and wouldn't leave it unless I had to.
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I have a great sense of humor. I tend to be shy and a little reserved around people i don't know very well, especially in large group settings, so many people don't know how fun-loving i am.
Friends Describe me as
Caring, Dependable, Good listener, Intelligent
A little more about me
I firmly believe that it is better to remain single than to rush into a relationship for the sake of being in a relationship. I want to find someone I am compatible with, who I would want to stay with forever. My mom is on her third marriage, and I have learned from her example not to rush things.I don't have a membership yet. I'm a little leery of online dating as I have had some "interesting" experiences in the past. I do try to communicate during the free nights to see how this site works out.
