Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a very laid back and positive person. I like to find the good
in any given situation and generally put people at ease. I’ve
simplified my life in the past 5 years since my divorce and am
ready to meet the right person. My friends would tell you that I’m
honest and direct, but not in a mean way. I call it “efficient”
communication. I know a lot of chicks say this but I really do live
a drama-free life. There are of course ups and downs, but I try not
to let the “estrogen poisoning” get in the way of rationale
I am looking for a partner to travel with, hike with, and just hang
out with. Someone who likes to be outdoors. I love camping but
haven’t gone since I sold my truck. I’m into hiking – mostly in
Sedona, scuba diving, and caving and try to get on my bike at least
once a week to ride along the canal. Since turning 40, I’ve noticed
that gravity has taken control of certain parts of my body so going
to the gym is also part of my routine. I love to cook at home
(especially BBQ) and sit in the backyard enjoying a fire and a
glass of wine. I’m into the Culinary Festivals and Historic Home
Tours here in town and really enjoy anything that promotes local
business. I’m not a fan of the big chain restaurants/stores and you
wouldn’t catch me anywhere near a Starbucks. Sorry coffee lovers.
Just not my thing.
I don’t have any pets, but I’m partial to dogs (allergic to cats.)
I don’t have any kids but I’m an amazing Aunt (so I’ve been told).
It’s okay if you have kids, as long as everything is cool between
you and the “baby-mama”. Again, trying to keep the drama to a
I think the key to a successful relationship is honest and open
communication. Without communication, there can be no trust.
Without trust there can be no love. I also think that a true
partnership is 100/100, not 50/50. I would never expect to be
successful if I only gave 50% at work, why would anyone think that
it would work in a relationship?
If you’re looking for a partner to share life’s adventures with,
I’d love to hear from you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to do no harm. Living each day with purpose.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel at ease and telling it like it is.
The first things people usually notice about me

My laugh and the junk in my trunk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I just read Buddhist Boot Camp and loved it. Also a huge Stephen
King fan. The Gunslinger Series is a must read. Favorite movie is
Shawshank Redemption - it's glued me to the sofa more than once.
Also the LOTR Trilogy and the Alien series. My iPod has a little
bit of everything from NIN to Usher to Alison Krauss. I'm not a
picky eater, but I'm not a fan of seafood. Cooking at home involves
a lot of Italian food or grilling/smoking on the Egg. When I go
out, I do my best to avoid the chain restaurants and stick to the
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Camelbak, my Tempurpedic, my passport, the ocean, my hiking
shoes, and the Big Green Egg (even though mine is red).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How people have lost the ability to communicate and connect with
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at the Art Museum and First Fridays downtown, or enjoying Happy
Hour somewhere close to home.
