Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Yes! I'm ready to begin Life Part II.
Before I tell you what I hope Part II is filled with, I'll start
with where I've been.
Part I was filled with plenty of joy and some pain. Lots of
lessons and self-discovery. It was filled with a career that I love
and 2 sons I adore. It was filled with growth that took me in a
different direction from my ex. It led me to greater expressions of
my creativity (writer/artist) and more awareness of my spirituality
and connection with a Higher Power and my fellow human
At this point in my life, I'm older (don't feel it!) and wiser
(absolutely!). In Life, Part II, I would love to meet a kindred
spirit who values kindness, humor, intelligence, fun, adventure,
and a loving committed relationship. I love to laugh, consider
myself quite witty and playful. (As a writer, I love language in
general) I've been described as a "deep thinker, but a light
I love to travel. Have been to quite a few countries in Europe --
but that was back in my backpacking college days, so I'm due for
some new adventures. I love music -- all of it. From classic rock
to even the new, more mainstream country...and everything in
between. Music moves me. Art moves me. Love moves me. Bright, kind
people move me. My children...and so many other things. Interesting
foods. Spontaneous weekend getaways (only when I'm really "a
couple" with someone. I don't take that lightly.) I love the ocean
(I grew up in a house that overlooked the ocean. Mom now lives on
an island in Maine!) so being near the sea feeds my soul.
I had the privilege of going to a very fine college, but in no way
consider myself an academic snob. I enjoy bright, witty,
interesting people no matter what their "credentials" are!
I'm professionally/financially independent so I'm not looking for
someone to take care of me. I'm looking for someone who compliments
me(almost said "completes me"...but that's no one's job but my
If you think we have some important things in common, I'd love to
hear from you. If not, best of luck in finding your own version of
Life, Part II.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying a return to my career as an advertising copywriter.
Freelanced while I raised my kids, but I'm no back at it.
Spending time with wonderful friends, and family that I love.
Creating art (I paint, etc.) Creating beauty/landscape
Travelling whenever and wherever I can. Hoping to meet someone who
wants to share life and adventures together -- someone with a sense
of humor, compassion toward others, spontaneity, generosity of
spirit, spirituality....is that too much to ask :-)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Creating beauty -- with words, images, gardens, home
(I minored in studio art in college and find lots of outlets for
Creating meaningful relationships with friends and family.
I don't like to waste time on superficial relationships. I like
connecting on a deeper level -- sharing joys and pain -- with
friends who know how to talk about feelings.
Having fun. Being spontaneous. Travelling light and exploring new
places. Making people laugh. Being witty. Being mischievous.
Being playful. Being flirty.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Maybe my smile? I have dimples. Or high cheekbones?
I'm outgoing. I can talk to anyone, anywhere.
I treat people with respect and kindness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many to mention --= and extremely varied.
From classic rock to new country; Led Zepplin to Carey
From American comfort food to Indian, Thai, etc.
From Jodi Picoult "beach reading" to Shakespeare and T.S.
Movies -- love movies! -- tend to avoid the blockbusters with mass
appeal -- don't do much for me. I love the offbeat quirky ones like
Enough Said and Blue Jasmine recently.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A cozy home (doesn't have to be fancy, just "home")
Good friends and family
Creativity/words and images
Spirituality and faith
A dog -- always my BFF!
