I am an extroverted girl with a good blend of traditional and modern values. I would describe myself as an eternal optimist, who loves to laugh and spend time with the people who are important to me. I generally try not to take life too seriously and try my best to turn a negative situation into a positive one. I speak fluent sarcasm and, yes, I can take it as well as I can give it out! I will not sugar coat things to suit other people\'s needs, I believe being honest is easier and more beneficial. I believe that carbonation (being 'bubbly') belongs in a drink and not in a person\'s personality. I dislike expectations put on me and, therefore, prefer to let things flow rather than planning it down to fine detail. I am employed and independent. My father is Chinese and my mother is Russian, but I was born in Australia. I joined a gym roughly six months ago and I love it. I am more prone to going out and being social than I am to sitting on my butt and watching TV/playing video games, though sometimes it\'s nice to be lazy. <br/><br/>Yep. That\'s me in a nut shell.<br/><br/>To clarify what my weight description 'a few extra pounds' means, I\'m a size 14/16. I know seeing 'a few extra pounds' on someone\'s profile can be a little off-putting because, more often than not, people misuse those words. While I have no issue with larger people, they need to be honest with themselves and with everyone else and, perhaps, select the 'Big and Tall/BBW' option. Honesty is key, people. If you\'re on here to meet someone, they -will- eventually see you in real life!
