Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Listen. I am a lady. When my beverage is served, you will find my
napkin on my lap. I am a remarkable woman. I have overcome
adversity. Unimaginable adversity at that. This would include…wait.
That can’t be told on the first date. So let me tell you this. You
are looking at a woman who has owned a restaurant, having learned
on the job how to make it work. A woman who has made her mark as a
mother. A woman who has worked her way up that old corporate
ladder, with eternal appreciation to the men who believed in what
she could accomplish before she could imagine it herself. A woman
who also felt something powerful beating at the core of her being
when she was reminded that she could create her own reality. From
her thoughts. A woman who dreams big dreams, and steps out of her
comfort zone in order to bring them to life. A woman who runs 5Ks,
who teaches breath therapy, who makes spirit dolls, who finds the
gold in unlikely people and places.
And I am looking for a man who…is you? How do you match?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a financial analyst by day, and developing a private practice
"on the side" for Counseling with Breath Therapy--my calling. It
seems there isn't enough time in the day to do it all, like add a
relationship to all this. Except there is something I’ve learned
about time in recent years. It opens up when we are “in the zone,”
so to speak. And I know, too, that I am open to finding a love
that’s true and spectacular. And know about miracles.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There is nothing I could never do without, having learned that upon
having once lost the only thing I loved at all. Now there's a
story. But I know what you're really asking: I love my music,
roses, things that sparkle, sensuality, someone to chatter to
(with!), laughing and playing, meditation, Rumi. Maybe you.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

and the dew on those asparagus ferns as the sun is rising.
On a typical Friday night I am

wondering if I'll ever have a typical Friday night, and hoping the
answer is never, being fond of surprises.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love falling in love. Even the heartbreaking parts of it. Because
I have a dream--that someday the love will keep growing instead of
stopping. Actually, it doesn't stop at all, if I'm paying
attention. It all leads to you and me. And I believe in that. Just
like a teenager. With that innocence. With that divinity.
That, and I kinda sit on my cell phone while driving. So I'll know
if a call comes through. From the vibration. [Update: Well, I used
to. There are some things Smartphones don't do as well!!!]

you are aligned with Ferg's Law: "When everything can go right, it
will, and at the best possible moment." And if you are thoughtful,
and strong in spirit, you love to laugh, you like movies, walks,
talking about what it's all about. You are confident and competent,
and also know that life is supposed to be fun.
P.S. I wear heels...would like to look up at you...
P.P.S. You probably won't hear back from me if you have posted more
