Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have made some minor updates to my profile. Previously I have not
been one to respond to contacts, but now feel ready to meet
someone. I am new to this whole on-line "let me tell you about
myself" gig, so I'll give it a try. I am a midwestern MN girl and
have been in AZ and Flagstaff for over 20 years. I am generally a
positive person and looking for the same. I am a home body, love a
good book and quiet, but also enjoy socializing and being outdoors.
Beach time, hiking, skiing, running, camping, river running and the
like, especially when the dogs are included. I think community,
friends and family are critical for a full life.
I don't have kids, but I have a lot of nieces and nephews. My aunty
skills are honed and I enjoy spending time with my friends with
Oh, I am kind of a geek and definitely analytical. I spend most
days in front of a computer and warmer weather is making me crazy
to be outside with my dogs. Or going for a hike. Or drinking a beer
in the sun. Or all of the above.
My pets, especially my dogs, are central in my life. My partner in
life will need to be into dogs too.
I like someone who has taken (or is still taking) the time to get
to know themselves and can talk about it; someone who can fix
things and works with their hands; someone that can wear a tie and
knows what an iron is as well as can lay around in yesterday's
clothes; to be continued....
Small talk I am not great at. I can be shy sometimes in groups of
people and on occasion, gregarious. I am the person at the party
reading the titles on the bookshelves, playing with the pets, or
running the video or camera of the goings-on. I love to laugh, make
others laugh and connect through meaningful conversations.
I appreciate the occasional football game, but am not keen on a
fanatical tv sports person in my life.
Please don't email me with some short come-on lines, like, "your
hot" or the like. Others that don't work are: "I am new to town,
wanna get together?" and then you have no information on your
profile nor any photos. It takes guts to do this, to put yourself
out there. So if you can't bother to fill out some information
about yourself, don't email me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

contemplate working with flagstone at my house this summer;

I don't watch TV (live TV, maybe some recorded things like Soap or
the Winds of War mini-series; more recently learned of Lost and Hot
in Cleveland) and when I do get the chance to see live TV, usually
while at the gym, I find it generally insulting and or revolting.
Netflix is my bag. That said, i like lots of different movie genres
minus the horror flicks and extreme violence. I dig old

style sitting and fire place area in my yard, where to go hiking
that won't be inundated with people (good options around here for
that unless you are near water), how to be more social; how to meet
people who are positive, fun, and balanced (or striving to be); how
to have more fun, how to create and maintain balance in my own
life; how to meet someone to do all those things with
