Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
ABOUT ME: I was born in NYC and raised in NJ. I moved out to
California about 16 years ago, and I love it here! What’s not to
love? Well... okay...I admit it... the earthquakes still scare the
hell out of me!!!
Most people would describe me as outgoing, warm and fuzzy, real,
open-minded and easy to talk to. They also tag me as a "strong"
person, which I am, however, what they don't often notice is that I
am actually pretty sensitive, even though I might not show it
outwardly. Lastly, I get told that I'm "funny" … which I really
don’t see, but I’m really glad they think I am. : )
If I were asked to describe myself, I would start by saying that
I’m a little bit "old fashioned". I agree that I am outgoing (in
most instances), but I can also be a little shy at times. I’m
genuine, warm, passionate, creative, generous, affectionate and
usually pretty fun to be around. I like giving and receiving PDA’s
and my partner would have to feel the same way.
I am passionate about making a difference in this world! I care
about what's going on around me and I try to help out wherever and
whenever I can.
I love working with kids. I have worked for and with many
organizations that deal with kids and I volunteer some of my time
doing that as well. I also love animals, books and music. And, I
really enjoy traveling and I have many new places that I still want
to visit. Want to join me?
WHO I'M LOOKING FOR: Hmmm.... that would have to be... "my perfect
someone"! And what exactly would make him "perfect"? His "INSIDES!"
He should possess qualities like inner strength, intelligence
(that's a huge turn-on for me), passion, integrity and drive. But
the most important quality I’m looking for in a partner is honesty…
Well...that’s it for now. I have to leave something for us to talk
about later, don’t I?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
As far as work... I'm a Meetings and Events Specialist for an
insurance company...and I love my job! : )
On a more personal note... I guess I'm looking for a special person
to share the rest of my life with. I've been divorced for over 15
years, and I think I'm at a place in my life now, where I would
like to be in a long-term relationship again.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... taking care of things. By that I mean all kinds of things...
work-related projects and timelines, to-do-lists, my home, my
finances, my friends and loved ones. I'm usually the person that
people come to when they "get stuck". I'm a pretty good problem
solver, I guess... and I'm a "do-er", so things get done!
I'm also good at loving and caring for the one I'm with! : )
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My energy! I've been told that it's infectious. I'm not known for
sitting still for too long, unless, of course... it's been one of
those crazy days.
Oh... and I talk pretty fast (especially when I get excited). I
think that comes from being an Italian from the East Coast.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I've read a lot of books these past few months, but one that stood
out in my mind was The Shack, by William P. Young. This one will
stay with me for a long time! I'm currently reading "Most
Talkative" by Andy Cohen... for a little light-hearted and fun
My all time favorite movie is The Sound of Music, but more recently
it would have to be AVATAR, and a little less recently, CRASH and
AMERICAN HISTORY X.
I love going to the theater. Some of my favorite plays have been
PHANTOM, RENT, THE LION KING and TOMMY! Going to an opera and a
ballet are two of the items still on my Bucket List.
As far as music... I love old school R & B (Motown) the best...
(Marvin Gaye, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, etc.), but I also love
Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Jimmy Buffet, Chicago, Santana,
George Benson, Boney James, Queen, The Eagles, Frank Sinatra, Louis
Armstrong, Michael Buble, Pink Martini and Marc Anthony. (I REALLY
LOVE Latin music, especially Brazilian music!)
Now for the food part... My favorite is probably SUSHI, followed by
anything Asian... but I love ALL SORTS of food! I have developed a
real love for Soul Food since I moved to California (give me
smothered pork chops with greens and mac and cheese... and I am in
HEAVEN!) But... I also love most things Mexican! Oh... and pizza!
That's my "comfort food"!
I do have to warn you... there are 3 or 4 things I really don't
like... and they are: tomatoes, cilantro and green peppers... and I
like to be able to actually taste my food, so please go easy on
that hot sauce!
But trust me... I am very easy to please when it comes to food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the sound of children laughing
animals (all kinds)
bread & cheese (I'm Italian... I can't help it!)
some good books and music
(I kinda squeezed in a 7th thing... sorry!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. the future... and what's next for me in this life
2. the next project I want to tackle
3. the people around me / my community... and what I can do to help
those who are in need
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
either relaxing at home (maybe with a book or maybe watching TV
with my dog), out to dinner with friends, going to the movies, or
catching up on some housework. Pretty standard stuff. I'd love to
meet someone and start making Friday "date night"! :-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Even though I consider myself a little "old fashioned", I have been
known to "come out of my shell", if you know what I mean... and
when I do... watch out! : )) The rest you will have to find out for
You should message me if
