Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Ok the somewhat trivial basics: I'm very fit and energetic,
intelligent, kind, down to earth, balanced yet sexy and a
healthy-56, actually I've never felt better in my life!
I believe in living a balanced life. Very important to me that a
future mate is active and healthy too, as well as all those other
obvious things: kind, thoughtful, intelligent....
And I love living in Seattle, having grown up in the Midwest.
Fantastic variety of things to do, from city life to outdoors. Many
incredible hikes and places for weekend getaways (though haven't
done that in ages); it's a fabulous life in the Pacific Northwest!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Raising teen as widowed parent, creating stable home, working
part-time, daily gym workouts (love Zumba and strength training),
reading, puzzles, volunteering, hiking, and taking care of my home
filled with too many animals :). Happily enjoying life!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing! No seriously, being nice and friendly. Working hard,
loyalty and kindness.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My friendly eyes and smile....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love reading a variety of fiction and some non-fiction too; over
150 books a year, the library is a great deal!
Enjoy movies, theatre is wonderful too, but don't get the
opportunity as often as I'd like.
Don't watch much TV, a bit of Jon Stewart or Game of Thrones with
Like live music, though haven't been forever. Favorites range from
Coldplay to Moody Blues, Grateful Dead to John Mayer....
Like all types of healthy eating and ethnic foods, esp thai,
indian, sushi and seafood. Enjoy dining out but also love a good
home cooked healthy meal.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmmm, since I've survived the death of my hubby at a young age for
both of us, I'll write (excluding the 1st) with a grain of
1. My teen: who is actually enjoyable and pleasant to be with! Ah
flies soon; yet I could never do without the love and joy, that is
when isn't rolling eyes at me!
2. Gym: love my weekday work outs! Like Zumba and strength training
but find the whole AM routine key to my well-being.
3. Books! Am always reading, learning doesn't just happen in a
classroom, for me it's through a variety of novels.
4. Friends/Internet connection: small long-time circle scattered
around the West coast, well internationally too :).
5. Outdoors: including mountains, lakes, and my back yard which
I've nurtured for 25 years.
6. My modest home: my oasis and central to my core.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The universe, the earth, how to help others, living within a
budget, enjoying life, being grateful for being alive and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking a special TGIF dinner with a glass of red wine as a treat.
Then walking the dog (no he walks me!) for extra long and even
taking in Mt Rainier on some days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not until we're friends and know each other better.
