The first thing people notice about me
The last book I read and enjoyed
I read Tara Road by Maeve Binchy. I loved the depth of characters. And I loved that the author was able to make me laugh out loud & simultaneously break my heart while she weaved the lives of two women's families together on two separate continents.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My independence - financially, socially & politically
- My health in all areas
- My education
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I tend to come across as "quiet" and "nice". These may be partially true, but people who really know me would never consider me to be "quiet". I would like to think they still consider me nice, but not in such a stereotypical way. As I get to know a person, I am able to be myself more easily.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Loyal, Perceptive, Quiet
A little more about me
I am looking for a friends first approach to a relationship. There is nothing to be lost by getting to know each other, but much to be lost in rushing into things too quickly.
