Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My 30-second self-promotion:
Warm, free-spirited, multi-talented smart gal seriously looking for
her one-and-only best friend, fierce lover and mate. I am
marriage/commitment-minded and will not settle for less.
I have never met a stranger and find children and pets to be
endlessly entertaining. My friendships are deep, and my outgoing,
empathetic nature means I have a good time with all. I laugh and
cry easily, enjoy lighthearted intellectual conversations but get
serious when it really matters.
I've been an artistic person all my life and always worked in
creative fields, which means I'm not wealthy, but I am rich in many
other ways. For those who do the Myers-Briggs thing, I'm ENFP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently in transition, career-shifting, trying to figure out what
I want to be when I grow up, and writing a young adult book (as
soon as my dishes and laundry are done...). I'm an artist,
illustrator, designer, teacher, writer. Recently ended an attempt
to be licensed to teach K-6. Teachers should be paid a million
dollars a year, have a personal assistant 24/7, and acquire
sainthood after they die of exhaustion.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
• connecting with people, making them smile.
• drawing and painting well enough to make money at it, mostly
designing/illustrating product for major apparel companies.
• making a mess of the kitchen while cooking mostly healthy
• cleaning up that kitchen, quickly.
• brainstorming creative solutions of all kinds.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Folks tell me it is my eyes, then my smile. After chatting for a
while, most get a quizzical look on their faces that says, "How can
you know about those things.. You are too young." And then I have
to show my driver's license to prove I am, indeed, 63, and that I
DO remember Woodstock.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
No inventory lists from me, honey! There is so much good stuff in
the world and I enjoy too many things to list. A shorter list would
be things I DON'T like: romance novels, chick flicks, rude
comedians, rap (and jazz) and brussels sprouts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Wonderful relationships with my Mom and my best friend
A flexible schedule
Autonomy and solitude
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to make money on my talent alone, since my beauty is fading, my
typing skills won't bring in enough cash, and it is kinda late to
go to medical school.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
watching Red Sox baseball and planning a trip to the Farmer's
Market early Saturday morning. So exciting, right? Got a better
idea? I'm flexible!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
.. in public, that is...
I match, fold, and "file" my socks by type and color!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...we match at least 80%. I have strong opinions on religion, so
please check your Bible or Koran at the door along with your guns,
street drugs, tobacco products, and NASCAR passes. All of those
items will be tossed, sold or recycled appropriately.
