I have done a lot of things and seen a great many places here in
the US. I would love to tell you my story and hear yours. I could
describe my beliefs but, because I think for myself, it takes time.
I don't fit neatly into a box. My goofy, corny, not PC (full of
double and even triple entendres) sense of humor gets me in trouble
sometimes. I am looking for someone who is also unique and funny. A
woman who "gets it". A woman who has lived but not let all that
living dull her sense of wonder and enjoyment of life. I like to
laugh and have fun and I try not to worry about embarassment. And
now for my life story in a large nutshell. I am a DC/Potomac native
who went away for 30 years and came back about six years ago. I am
I am liberal when being liberal makes common sense and conservative
when being conservative isn't too incredibly greedy, cold, bigoted
and elitist. I am a liberal patriot. I hate the wars we are waging
but hold the soldiers and their families in the highest regard. I
love this country because if something is wrong you can change it.
I went to college in California and taught Sex Ed in a tiny town in
Nevada for two years and had a baby boy now 22 then taught Biology
for almost 18 years more and had another baby boy now almost 21. I
was a coach, a political activist at times and all around a pillar
of society but, I was miserable. I ended up divorced and severely
depressed and resigned from my teaching career and my family who
mostly still live in the DC area got worried about me and convinced
me to come home. I did real estate with my Dad and his team for a
couple of years and then found a faith based community that
provides homes for life for adults with intellectual disabilities.
I have started 3 businesses and am taking classes in education that
will qualify me to reup my teaching credential. So far the most
lucrative has been my real estate career. My life is good. All I
need now is the unconditional love of an attractive, funny,
passionate, romantic, compassionate, woman. If you think you might
be the one to make my life complete drop me aline.
What I’m doing with my life
Getting fit. I have gotten into the 5 to 7:30 AM go to the gym and
swim and then do an hour on the elliptical thing again. Working
hard to grow my real estate career and not so hard on my tutoring
and helping people downsize in a green and socially conscious way
business. I have started a business which facilitates donations to
several local charities rather than letting stuff go to the dump
mostly for people are down sizing or moving. Buying the cargo van
to really get that going soon.I am taking classes to keep my
teaching credential and am starting a tutoring business. I have
begun training for a triathalon.
I’m really good at
Meeting people, helping people and making people laugh. Writing,
catching cat fish, playing soccer, adapting to changing conditions
and looking on the bright side of things, starting a camp fire,
changing the subject. I am not good at but enjoy dancing to my own
beat with no particular steps in mind, surfing, skiing, painting,

The six things I could never do without
2) love and 4 other things
I can do without cats I like them but I am highly allergic.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Doing good. Being ridiculous(my design for a kinetic sculpture for
the race next year).You Maybe. Does the idea of camping on the
beach, paddle board lessons, floating a river for a few days and
spending the night in a tree house,snow skiing or boarding ,
floating the Upper Potomac and camping without the tree house,
cycling the length of the C&O canal and camping and or staying
at bed and breakfasts along the way appeal to you? These are not
invitations ...yet. More of a screening tool. I plan on doing all
these things in the next few years but, it would be way better to
snuggle down with the one I love each night in any of these
locales. And the journey would be more enjoyable laughing and
talking to someone besides myself along the way and or enjoying
long silences together.
On a typical Friday night I am
Movies, concerts, lectures, hanging out with a
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'll need to get to know you better. One that's not so private. I
like drinks that taste good ( sweet cocktails and sweet wine and
beer that's cold). I believe if you have to "acquire a taste" for
something it must taste pretty bad.
You should message me if
You're looking for another decent human being and are physically
and emotionally passionate, like to laugh, don't take yourself or
life in general too seriously and you are kind.
