Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
We sometimes encounter people, even perfect strangers, who begin to interest us at first sight, somehow suddenly, all at once, before a word has been spoken. ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm pretty much willing to explore any avenue of thought or action that might redefine personal, professional, emotional, or psychological boundaries.

That said, I am headed back to school this fall to complete the next chapter of my adult life; while also trying to launch a modest online bookstore and be an amazing mother to my two amazing kids.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing loud enough to induce the laughter of those around me.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The confused look on my face as I notice them noticing me. Followed by awkward laughter.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Act your age, not your shoe size; and maybe we can do the twirl.

Currently reading "Last Night on Twisted River" by John Irving.

Just finished "The Importance of Living" by Lin Yutang, translated by John Day, (1937 edition).


I love new experiences. I guess you can say that I am addicted to shifting perspectives. Just when I think I understand something completely, or know what I like, something comes along to change that.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are really only two 'things' I couldn't imagine living without. My kids.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Innovative thinking
Artistic expression
The human condition
My life's work

And Tom Waits reads Bukowski
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Really joyful and content introverted behavior.

I made fajitas last night while dancing with my daughter in the kitchen as we listened to the Classic 90's station on Pandora; followed by a night in watching "Elementary" with my ten year old son, while snacking on popcorn and putting together one of those world map 1000 piece puzzles. Every night is Friday night at our house.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you think you get me, or I get you. I'm still banking on the hope that someone, somewhere, totally mutually gets it all with me. Sympatico.



This section is reserved for mental notes, pet peeves, and minor confessions, occurring as a direct result of online dating.

Disclaimer: if any of the 'stories' below resemble my experience with you, take it as a compliment, because you are helping me to REALLY lower my standards.

1) I've been getting some pretty weird messages. Ahem. I am not your intergalactic star queen. Nor will I engage in a fantasy with you where we fall in love upon first email, and ride off into the sunset.

1b) The Generic Pretyped Message: I received one recently from a guy, but what set this one a part from the rest was the fact that he sent me the EXACT same message two weeks ago. Please, don't do this. It can make an otherwise attractive and successful man look lazy and insincere. That doesn't mean you are either, so don't accidentally come across like it.

2) AND however flattering the offers have been, I do not want to be your cougar. I'm not even old enough to be classified as a cougar!? Am I?... Shit.

3) On a separate, but similar, note- I am realizing that I am personally TERRIBLE at flirting via email. In that self- deprecating, often misunderstood, over usage of emoticons, sort of way. *winky face*

4) The LIKE button is not a bookmarks tab for later. This is not Facebook. If you like me and I like you, that is the all clear to send a message. I'm old school, and probably won't message you first.

5) If it starts to look like you aren't interested in an in person meetup, I will drop you like last week's donuts. Who am I kidding, I'll drop you like yesterday's donuts. Hmm, warm donuts.

6) Please, put your shirt on. And show up sober to a first (or any) date.

6b) Do not lie about your details.

You see, some women aren't shallow. Some women are turned on by confidence, and integrity, more than your body shape or height.

7) Stop asking women who don't put full body pics up if they are 'catfishing' you? I am not catfishing anyone. Not to be confused with catfish fisting. (I'm not doing that either). See examples on YouTube.

8) "The Opposite of Catfishing, When Bad Online Profiles Lead to Good Dates."

9) The whole online dating experience is like one big social experiment. Maybe you'll be the one, maybe you won't. Maybe you'll have fun, maybe you'll learn a few tricks, maybe you'll find yourself. If you go into it with the expectation that this is about discovering what you want, and who you are, through various social settings- I think you will come much closer to getting what you want out of it. But- If you come into it thinking you'll find love, well- you might be setting yourself, and your dates, up for disappointment. Isn't it better to be pleasantly surprised?

I don't claim to have answers, or know how to do this right. If anything, I've simply learned what doesn't work.
