Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a multi-racial, health minded, middle-of-the-road, quirky girl
with an open mind, an easy laugh and a slightly inappropriate sense
of humor. I'm open to meeting men from all races and
I have an amazing, very well behaved 9 year old son who plays
baseball, football, basketball, soccer and swims. I'm a die hard
Bears and Yankees fan. I also support my Michigan college/pro
teams. I ran my first 5k in 2014 -- my 2015 goal is to complete a
I'm looking for a fun guy who wants to catch a concert at Chastain,
a Braves game, find a local fair/festival or go on some other
adventure. I'm attracted to men who are intelligent, quick-witted
and have an appetite for exploration and fun. Don't be put off by
the sound of my busy life. I find time for things and people that
are important to me.
I am especially attracted to really smart, semi-shy, nerdy types.
Men who are smarter than me pique my interest. Tall, funny men who
are smarter than me sweep me off my feet!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my spare time, I dance, paint, go to street festivals, see live
music and explore new and different cuisines. I am training for
that 10k in teeny little "Zombies, Run!" increments. I also love to
travel - South Florida, South Carolina coast, Napa/Sonoma and trips
up home (Michigan) are most frequented destinations. I also love
love love cruising (Caribbean, Mediterranean, even Alaska) and try
to plan a big vacation every year. Paris is my favorite city.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at life. I know some pretty decent life hacks.
Nothing overwhelms me, and if it does, I project plan my way out of
it. :-) Things typically fall my way, though I don't know if it's
luck or karma.

People usually notice that I am always smiling. I'm a positive
person who looks at the glass half full and sees the silver lining
even on the bleakest days. Either that or my big, brown doe eyes.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
As sappy as it sounds, I spend a lot of time thinking about how I
can be a better person and how I can make the world a better place.

On a typical Friday night I am

Although I admit to having a schoolgirl crush on Batman (The
Animated Series) my biggest fictional crush is Atticus Finch. I
almost named my son "Atticus," but wasn't certain how that would
play out in 2005 and beyond. One day my boy will thank me.
