I have a snarky, self-deprecating sense of humor that draws upon the tangential relationships I see between things. It usually emerges as a quiet, unexpected one-liner.
I have my shit together, and I appreciate when a man has his in a reasonably tidy pile. I'm ready to meet a man who wants to be in a relationship.
I'm always learning new things and taking on new challenges. I'm currently learning to play guitar, and I love it. I usually read two or three books at a time, and I'm a bit of a podcast junkie.
I have three sons, ages 17, 21, and 27, of whom I'm intensely proud. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel on my parenting years, so I'm looking forward to less responsibilities and more travel.
Just chillin'. We don't always have to talk, do we? I like to just sit together hanging out in silence, maybe while holding hands.
Finding the humor in any situation. Some of the worst experiences make the best stories.
Collaboration. Years of doing team projects have made me a good team player and partner. I can consider all sides to a problem while focusing on the desired outcome.
I can take a cheap cut of meat, put it in a pot, and make you believe you're at a French bistro. I also took cooking lessons in Italy ten years ago, so I've got mad risotto skills.
Music. I love to sing and play piano or guitar. I perform occasionally in local bars and coffee shops. I'd love to meet a man who plays guitar or can sing a duet with me, but it's not a requirement. At the very least, maybe you'll want to be my groupie.
I'm also good at advocating for the underdog...

A good book (or two at one time)
