Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an artist and have been painting and drawing since I was a kid;
I sell my art and usually have a couple shows a year. I also pet
sit, mostly on Orcas Island.
I LOVE working on old houses, and the smell of wood when working
I'm a happy, sweet, witty, creative, very silly, sometimes
irreverent, engineering-thinking, artistic, tomboy girly-girl,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Loving life, hanging out, swimming, a movie at home, drawing. I'm
currently researching "tiny house" (RV), or a Pan Abode.! Puttering
around the house (did some basic rewiring and plumbing and
painting, which I masochistically think is fun). Not romantic
enough? Well, I'm also a pretty good cook and love to show off in
lingerie. Cooking IN lingerie - um, not sure that's the best
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being easy-going and appreciating every day. Dancing. Singing.
Saying thinks. Noticing details. Seeing the big picture. Avoiding
drama. Taking naps. Making people smile. Smiling back. Art.
Photoshop. Sex (hmmm)..
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People tell me that my face lights up and my eyes sparkle when my
smile comes out :-) And my hats. Hats hats hats. Yes, I like hats.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Fiction more than non-fiction, mostly real paper books with that
tactile quality; Basketball Diaries, To Kill a Mockingbird,
Kerouac, The Good Earth, The Hobbit, Green Eggs and Ham, anything
by Anita Shreve, Dana Stabenow, Steven White; classic movies and
film noir like The 39 Steps and Citizen Kane; the old BBC Avengers
and newest Sherlock; bluegrass folk ska rock old school; Billie
Holiday, Charlie Parker, Led Zeppelin and No Doubt; anything not
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) love and intimacy and friends and a kind shoulder to lean
2) smiles - the most basic human communication
3) good coffee with cream
4) creating things
5) meditation/prayer/yoga or some kind of relaxation practice
6) men who fill out their profiles, answer questions, include more
than one photo, and don't just say "Ask me anything..." or "I'm not
buying you coffee cuz I'm not a sugar daddy."
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Would that sketch I did 10 years ago make a good painting?
- Designs for "tiny living" homes
- Love. What is it? Where is it? Can I find it? Can it find
- Wondering if I have too many photos here
- Co-housing/Intentional Communities/Poly-Fi Families
- What would it feel like to reel in a 20lb Coho? Num!
- Waiting for my house to go up in value so I can move to
- Trying to figure out the exact location of paradise ;-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes a social get-together, like a party or dancing; sometimes
vegging, sometimes painting.
Helping a guy friend make a gal's profile here so he can see all
the " hey sexy lady" and "wow ur beautiful" messages we get. He
wrote back to them!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I know a man with a wife and two little girls. He was riding his
bike to work and a distracted driver hit and threw him 30 feet. In
a coma for weeks, he came out of it, with only a slight limp.
Several people responded that I should tell BEFORE meeting that
I've had MS for 22 years. Sheesh, I don't define myself by it. I
have sooooo much in my life: a home, enough to get by, incredible
friends, a fun social life, and a bright future. The only missing
piece is someone to share that with.
None of us really knows what will happen to us in the future. If
you get scared away by my MS, that's okay. I might get fewer
results, but least I won't be wasting anyone's time.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Bottom line (paragraph?): you're a grown-up who also likes to have
FUN! To travel, play in the water, sail, maybe do yoga and
meditation, spend the day at a naturist camp...ooh! Go camping, lay
by the fire, go out to dinner and a play, putter around the house,
and talk. (Yep, I know that last one can be a four-letter word. I
promise to never start a sentence with "We need to talk...")
(No FWBs, please! Unless you're really rich and have a villa in the
south of France - lol!)
I read a profile here where a man described his "fantasy
woman," so, here's my "fantasy" partner (not in order or deal

- You like cooking dinner together, growing veggies,
self-sufficiency, and maybe building a poly or line family or
co-housing (or some kind of community).
- Relaxing in front of the tv isn't at the top of the list but it's
- Switzerland? Sure! (I have friends and a standing invitation). I
really want to snowboard in the Alps, just once. Okay, maybe
- You want me to hold you tight after your tough day...and to
languish in my bosom...
