IN HER OWN WORDS
I am laid back, fun girl who loves to read, box, cook, and help others. Writing is my passion and I love great conversations. I am an active blogger, and I teach an LSU Leisure Course on blogging and social media. I recently adopted a kitten from CAAWS, and completed training to become a volunteer for CASA. I am looking for someone who will share these things with me, and introduce me to their world, too. I want to have a fun, honest relationship, with someone looking to enjoy life’s journey!

…So, there’s my profile.
I finished filling in all the blanks not long before I took my regular boxing class. One hour later, I’d already received several “winks” (Match.com’s equivalent of a Facebook poke) and 5 emails.
While I could see the people who “winked,” I couldn’t read the emails without paying first. The best part? Until you pay, the emails say, “Could he be the one?”
I don’t know, could he be?
