Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've taken most of my profile out again, discouraged by the
interactions I've had here, but too stubborn to give up on it yet.
If you're going to judge who I am based on my writing skills (or
lack thereof) you're missing the point of this site. My friends all
think I'm witty and funny, but I can tell you it doesn't translate
well in writing unless you know me in person. There are subtleties
and nuances that don't convey in print until you understand the
mind behind the thoughts. Also, please know who you are or at least
have a solid foundation of understanding. I love learning and
growth but I'm not looking to date someone who has no clue who they
are. Confident, self-aware women welcomed. I'm particularly
selective, not picky, if you know the difference and think we're a
match say hi. Highly intelligent, (not a brag, just a fact), as
long as you're not intimidated by that, or can hold your own in
that department, we'll be fine. Looking for someone reasonably
close. Please be capable of electronic separation for an evening, I
guess I'm old-fashioned in that I think a date entails spending
time with a person engaged in some activity and holding a
conversation. If you need to know what your friends are doing every
minute, or can't wait until after the date to check or to post what
a dork I was, you probably won't last long with me.
We all have our 'rules' or criteria for dating, I'm not necessarily
looking for someone who fits them as much as I am looking for
someone who makes me want to make an exception for them.
If you "like" me, I won't see who you are. A quick note to say hi
and some indication you read my profile even cursorily is the best
way to catch my attention.
I have kids and they matter. I'm not a helicopter parent, but am
engaged in their lives as much as they allow.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, parenting, getting outdoors as often as practicable,
playing music Bingo with my kids on my Sundays.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Asking for help matching clothes. Somedays it's hard to tell I'm
color-blind, other days not so hard. ;-)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Am I being as good a parent to my children as mine were to me?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've asked for directions...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You actually want to meet in person. I'm not big on the penpals
thing. Trollers need not apply. You're available during the week,
or don't mind that I'm only available every other weekend.
