I have an INFJ (Introverted iNtuitive Feeling Judging) personality. Info about us here: http://www.humanmetrics.com/personality/
Name is Cassie. My name actually stems from family inspiration; Cassandra after my mother (Sandra) and Annette after my grandmother (it was her middle name as well).
I am pansexual. This means I am not attracted just to the gender of the person. I am attracted to the person, their soul, spirit, personality, etc. I can, in essence, be attracted to any gender. Don’t get me wrong, looks are nice! But if I don’t like you as a person, then goodbye!
I live in Southeastern Ohio. Do I like it? Not particularly. I’m surrounded by hicks, closed-minded bigots, and bible thumpers. I can’t wait until the day I can escape this place. I’m a suburban girl in mind and heart stuck in hick hell. Country life does have its perks, but they’re hard to see over your neighbors Christmas lights in the middle of July.
I am in my mid-20’s. I hold my high school diploma and have 2.5 years of college under my belt. I’m certainly not illiterate despite flunking out of college. It’s not for everybody, my friends.
I still live at home with my mother. This is half by choice and half out of responsibility. My mother is a disabled SSI recipient in her 60’s. I am the only child still at home and without the responsibility of a spouse, career, and children (for now). I grew up poor. A welfare baby. But I do not resent or regret this. It taught me many important life lessons about the true value of material things and the real purpose of life. I am very thankful for everything I have and never take it for granted.
I do not have my driver’s license due to several reasons. When I was 16 I had no need for them and this continued until about 2012. Since then I have been working my way towards getting my license. Hopefully before 2015 is over I’ll have it! It’s one of my goals for this year.
I do not have a full-time job at this point. I babysit part-time or on an as-needed basis. This earns me some money but not enough for what I want to do with my life. I hope to get a more stable job before 2015 comes to a close; this is another goal I have for the year.
I have a complicated relationship with my mother. My father divorced us when I was 5-months-old and has never wanted anything to do with me. I have depression and anxiety issues that my mother played a role in the development of. She kept me sheltered and at home for as many years as she possibly could by homeschooling me. Despite this, she has made countless sacrifices for me and has given endless support through everything I have faced.
I have suffered from depression and anxiety since I was 12 (2002). I’ve been in therapy since 2012 and I’ve been on medication since 2013. Last year due to stress and medications, I put on quite a bit of weight and I now weigh the largest I’ve ever been. My weight caused me to develop a hiatal hernia that has led to acid reflux. I hope to get back into exercising soon so I can get back to being healthy.
I’m a hyper-sensitive person. I feel all of life’s emotions more extreme than the next person. I fall in love faster, I love deeper, I’m more expressive of my emotions, and feel deeper than the average person. I wear my heart on my sleeve basically.
I don’t do drugs, rarely drink, and would rather stay in with a few close friends than attend a major party. I am allergic to tobacco smoke and so I’ve never had a cigarette.
I’m not a social butterfly, despite being a Gemini. I have one friend that I consider my #1 confidant and supporter. Her name is Krystal and she’s that friend I can trust with anything and everything. Under her, I have a few close friends that are an amazing network of support and encouragement. I find it hard for me to make friends, and I so generally don’t make many news ones very often.
Dating is like an Olympic sport. I don’t do the bar thing, hate casual flings, and I don’t want just sex. I’m an old-fashioned classy lady. I only do serious relationships. Anyone lacking maturity, responsibility, dignity, or compassion need to move on. I don’t need perfection, but I at least need a well-rounded human being.
I am an utter Hopeless Romantic. I love romance and love, and am here hoping to find my Soulmate, the one whom is destined for me. I want someone that will stand beside me. Not to be my spouse, but to be my partner in life. I am nowhere near done growing as a person and I need someone to support me on my journey that I can call mine. I want a love that takes my breath away. I want a love that makes me feel wanted and special.
I am a Christian who supports the LGBTQIA (look that up if needed) community and their government and marriage rights. I also have every intention on raising my children the same way. Being a closed-minded bigot is not how Jesus saw his brothers and sisters acting, I’m sure. My beliefs are not straight-laced, obviously confirmed by my support of the gay community. I don’t need someone to feel the same, but you must respect my feelings and not try to change them. I took a quiz entitled “What Religion Should You Really Practice” and I got Judaism… this is something I should probably consider/look in to.
I have 5 older half siblings that are each a piece of work in their own way. Craig and Adam (my mother’s from her first marriage) are the only siblings I grew up with. Rhiannon, Libby, and John (my father’s from previous relationships) all lived very difficult lives. In 2013 I got into contact with my sisters via Facebook. Neither one has wanted to pursue a serious relationship with me, but they are my relatives and I’ll be there whenever needed. I have around 10 nieces and nephews and one great nephew; I only have a relationship with Craig’s children. My oldest nephew (Rhiannon’s son) is enlisted in the army and married with a son. I’ve never met him, but I damn sure am proud of him.
I am, at times, a cynically sarcastic dreamer with the heart of a child that often resembles a big weirdo nerd that doesn’t apologize for who she is. If you meshed together Dorothy and Rose from ‘The Golden Girls’ you’d get me.
I’m not perfect, but I promise I am worth it
