Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Are you looking for someone who's sexy, smart, and secure?
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
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
I have three sons, ages 17, 21, and 26, 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.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm learning to sail and I'm taking guitar lessons. To learn the
rest you'll have to ask.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Holding hands. Love that. On our first road trip, I'll put a hand
on your thigh while you drive. I like to be touching.
Just chillin'. We don't always have to talk, do we? I like to just
sit together hanging out in silence, maybe while holding
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. 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...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family (that includes the dog)
Technology (though I hate to admit it)
Morning espresso (served black with sugar)
A good book (or two at one time)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
whether or not I'm a serial entrepreneur, a serial dater, or a
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If I've had an intense week, I need some down time. If not, I'm
probably enjoying a happy hour with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I stuck a button up my nose when I was three. It stayed there for a
week, because I was afraid to tell my mom what I'd done.
