Let's see, what should I tell you about myself? I'll start with the basics. I went to the University of Michigan for undergrad. My favorite color is pink. I use Mentadent toothpaste exclusively. Cookies and Cream is my favorite ice cream, and Sour Patch Kids are my favorite candy, especially the red ones. I love children, and was a kindergarten teacher for 5 years. Wanting to work with kids in a different way, I went back to school and got my master's degree in social work from UIC. Now, I am a child and adolescent therapist. I work with children in foster care, which certainly can be challenging. However, I find my job to be very rewarding and fulfilling.
Ok so what else....I like following current events and politics. I'm a news junkie. I'm always up for an interesting discussion. I enjoy going to museums around the city. I really like musicals and plays, and try and go to the theater often. I'm also into going to the gym and working out. I love hot yoga, as well as weight lifting classes (think boot campish) and Shred415 (Have you heard of it? So challenging but fun). I also like challenging myself by running races. Aren't you glad you learned all those extremely important details right from the start? Seriously though, I would describe myself as being sweet, sensitive, fun, and kind. I have a big heart, and care deeply for the people that are important to me. I would do anything for my family and I love spending time with them. Thankfully my parents live just 30 minutes away and my brother and sister-in-law live just 5 minutes away. Oh, and I have to mention their amazing dog who is the coolest dog nephew ever.
My friends would describe me as being a good listener, and they know that I'm there for them no matter what. That's probably one of the reasons I decided to become a therapist - it just feels natural to me to listen to others and try to help them. I'm very down to earth and friendly - the type of person that will gladly chat with a stranger at the grocery store. If you think you can appreciate my sense of humor, let's chat sometime.
I'm looking for a great person who is intelligent, well-educated, funny, exciting, trustworthy, attractive, opinionated, sweet, masculine, not boring, kind, looking forward to having children, interesting, and a good conversationalist. I'd like to meet someone sincere and genuine, an all-around good person. I have strong morals and values, and I'd like to meet someone who also has these traits.
I am ready to settle down, and I am excited to be a wife and mom. I just need to meet the right guy. :)
