I am a middle school English teacher by day and writer by night. A Canadian citizen who somehow ended up settling in El Paso, Texas, trading snow storms for sand storms. It is a physical desert as well as a dating desert. Although I do like it here, my reach for the stars fantasy is to one day live somewhere that I can hear the lapping of waves, and feel the sand slipping through my toes.
Being the kind of woman that any guy can take home to mom, I am accepting all applications for boyfriends that have steady employment, strong morals and values, and do not sport a mustache. (They remind me of my dad) One day I will have a dog, preferably a yellow lab, but at the moment I am too busy, and would feel guilty leaving it home alone for extended periods of time.
Despite the fact that online dating is so prevalent, it still carries a stigma. Nobody wants to admit they do it, yet I have spoken with numerous success stories. I want to encourage those who are out in the trenches with me to take heart, keep clicking that mouse, and continue to hope.
