Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think I'm a decent caring person. Sometimes I'm too open;
sometimes I trust others too easily. As a consequence, I seem to
get burned all of the time. But, I'll get back in the saddle and
I grew up in a US suburb. I graduated from a US university. I've
lived in Central America working in an agrarian development project
for over two years. I've worked with some of the powerful
(regionally) and with some of those fighting to survive. I can find
value in almost anyone; sometimes it takes a lot of effort. I've
been yelled at, cursed and threatened; or in other words, I was a
football (soccer) referee for over 25 years. I've refereed
professionals when they were younger and they still remember me.
(Don't know if that's good or bad?)
As an attorney, I've worked with people who are simple in the
outlook, complex in their emotions or down right scary (serious
battery or murder.) A peer once said that "Hepburn has never met a
stranger." I try to always remember that. Sometimes a smile or an
encouraging comment will help someone else out during the day. But,
I also can "step up to the plate" and do a darned good job for my
criminal defendant. But, that takes a toll on a person, and I'm
seeking something less demanding.
I enjoy England and my language studies here. I'm hoping to make
the transition from the US to UK become more permanent. I have
family in the US, but I've learned that my two daughters, 23 and
28, are into their own lives and careers. They don't need or really
desire my constant contact. The internet sure helps and they have
used their passports extensively.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on a Masters which combines language translation and
legal matters. I'm new to the UK, but English is my native
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to people and interacting with them. I enjoy adapting to
new circumstances. I believe that I'm a decent sort.
The first things people usually notice about me

People react to a pleasant smile and friendly body language. Then,
they notice the accent. "Oh, you have such a soft accent" My
response has been that "I'm from 'South Canada'". Canadians like
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Too many books to recite, but primarily histories or political
commentary. I like pop, disco, blues, soul, jazz, classical and
'60s rock. I like all types of food including American, Mexican,
Tex-Mex, British, Italian, Indian and others. Not fast-food, unless
I can't avoid it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A radio, the internet, books, food, a challenge and an
Don't have a TV in UK so I'm proving that I can live without it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How people interact.It is really fun to watch people common place
activities. Often varied, often unique. What makes them function
and why they do the things they do.
I do enjoy political commentary and sports. I enjoy being out of
the US and looking at life there from outside. My political
commentary will be forthcoming if we meet and you wish to hear it.
And, no, I'm not a "Tea Party" person. No way; no how.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Eating out and going to a movie or being with friends.
