Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Girl next door type. Emotionally stable, healthy, happy, active,
outgoing. Endlessly curious and easily amused. Honest to a fault.
Gracious. Also a little smarter than the average bear, and it’s
pretty important to me that you be, as well.
Always up for an adventure – been told I’m worse than the dog when
it comes to travel: jingle the keys and my ears perk up. Not
reckless, but let’s just say I’ve got a spontaneous streak. Can
hold my own in the kitchen when I choose to. Generally play well
with others, one of those people who can talk to anybody, but
actually more of an introvert by the technical definition.
Definitely need my personal time, hate to be the center of
attention (camera shy in particular), and have some serious
home-body tendencies. People constantly tell me I’m funny, but it’s
kinda an offbeat, dry humor, and not something I can do on
Relatively athletic. Or at least attempt to be... Regularly sport
assorted bruises and minor injuries from less than successful
efforts... I’m not looking for a guy who’s a bodybuilder (I,
myself, workout bc I believe that a life without carbs just isn’t
worth living…), but someone who takes care of themselves is a
priority. Discovered rock climbing a couple yrs ago and have ridden
horses since I was 5. Believe that the smell of a barn in the
morning is one of very few things worth getting up at the crack of
dawn for. Love being outdoors and am up for about anything –
boating, skiing, hiking… you name it. (not much of a camper though;
no plumbing and I lose interest fast...)
Definitely looking for “the one” … and somewhat of the belief that
anyone much beyond their mid-20’s who says otherwise is either a
liar or a fool. But that doesn’t mean I’m ONLY looking for
something serious. Until the real thing comes along, I wouldn’t
mind a few not-so-serious distractions…
Also, If you're not down with both dogs and cats and OK w/
shedding, I'm not the girl for you. Adopted a puppy last winter (a
mutt - best guess is shepard/hound and going to be about 45#), so
he's gonna be around for awhile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting my own business off the ground doing what I've always
wanted to do - rehab houses. Have a new business partner and have
successfully sold several now.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Appreciating the little things. People watching. Picking out tile
and paint colors. Making a decisive call about what restaurant to
go to when no one else will.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Umm.... That I’m running 5 min late? Physical compliments I receive
are usu on my teeth, eyelashes (but that one is usu from other
women, asking if they’re fake), or my legs. I can rock some heels.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Couldn’t tell you the title of the LAST book I read, much less
compile a list of favorites… Big reader, mostly quality fiction,
kinda stuff you'd find on a book club list.
What I'd consider 'smart comedy' - along the lines of Modern
Family, How I Met Your Mother, Community. West Wing is my all time
favorite. Often have something like DIY, History channel on for
Clicked over to iTunes, and first 10 artists from whom I have a
full album, alphabetically: A-Ha, ABBA, Aceyalone, America,
Barenaked Ladies, Barry Manilow, Beach Boys, Beastie Boys, Big
Audio Dynamite, Billy Joel. Not necessarily my favs, but gives you
an idea. Kinda all over the place. Listen to the radio more than my
own collection, and have been called the ‘Queen of the One Hit
Wonders’ by friends
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Are we assuming the first couple levels of Maslow’s Hierarchy are
met to a first world, middle class standard? If so:
1. Friends and family
2. My dog. Dogs and animals in general.
3. Books. The written word.
4. New experiences; a good challenge
5. Ice Cream, coffee in particular
6. A decent Internet connection
But if you take away the Maslow thing, there are a couple family
members I might trade in for a toothbrush…
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Anything and everything…
Where I put the charger for the whatzit; that I really should make
the time to educate myself more on current events; comparative
religion; the nature of relationships; what’s in the freezer and do
I need to buy dog food?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with specific plans or I’ll generally head to the gym or
barn, meet some friends for a long ride or climb, and/or just home
(by choice - like I said, def have some home-body tendencies…)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I *might* have left out the BeeGees when I was listing the first 10
albums I own. Don’t judge.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
• Whatever emotional baggage you have, it’s packed neatly and you
carry it yourself
• Anything here made you kinda laugh - big believer that’s one of
the best indicators of chemistry
• You’re closer to my age than my father’s (mid 60’s). Yeah, age is
just a number, but that’s where it just gets creepy
