I am open to starting with a friendship, but isn't the reality that we all only want to be friends with people that that we are attracted to and think could have dating potential?
As you will read in the rest of my profile, I have a sarcastic sense of humor.
I have two daughters--both teenagers--for whom I am mostly "wheels and cash." I have a close relationship with both of them and I am sincerely grateful for that. I am also close to my extended family and have a tight circle of excellent friends, although very few live in Chicago. Have a ton of rockin' good friends from college, go Ripon!
I would describe myself as a food snob and a wine slut. I really enjoy dining out and love all kinds of cuisines. On my hit list of restaurants to try right now is Girl and the Goat. I enjoy many kinds of wine. What's your favorite?
I enjoy concerts, theater, outdoor festivals and exploring the city. Bluesfest is one of my favorite weekends of the summer. In terms of concerts, I have recently seen Lady Gaga, Maroon 5, Black Eyed Peas, Michael Buble and Britney Spears (worst concert I have ever seen.) Favorite concerts of all time...Stevie Ray Vaughan, David Bowie, and Van Halen (before Sammy Hagar.) I grew up in a suburb of Detroit, so we definitely were into music. It's that or crack in Detroit...
I am also a Cubs fan. Don't judge.
I have been divorced almost two years and have not had a lot of luck with online dating (yet.) I miss going out to dinner, and just having fun with someone. I'm not necessarily looking for a serious relationship, but am looking for a genuine connection. And I have to say...I miss intimacy.
Let's be honest and say what each of us really wants. Isn't that the best start?
