Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's see, how to describe myself and what I am looking for. For
starters, I am motivated, independent, and goal oriented. I have a
great career that I really love. On the flip side of that I can
also be shy, am definitely gentle and kind, and am looking for
someone who can respect those qualities as well. I consider myself
very liberal, but am always open to listening to others'
viewpoints. I do my best to be environmentally and socially
conscious, and am looking for someone who not only respects that,
but also wants to live that type of lifestyle.
I have a wonderful appreciation for the great outdoors. I grew up
skiing, hiking, biking, kayaking, rafting, and camping. I am not
great at any particular sport, but enjoy doing most things outside.
I am looking for someone who wants to explore all that this
beautiful area has to offer with me.
I also love to travel and see new places. I have seen most of this
country and have done some international traveling (although not
near as much as I would like to). I love the history of Europe, the
natural beauty of the red rocks of Utah, and the smell of the
I also enjoy some quiet relaxation time. I like reading, going to
the theater, hanging out with friends, wine tasting, and much more.
I love learning new things and enjoy challenging myself. I also
really enjoying cooking. I have recently started trying a lot of
new recipes and making more gourmet food.
A good match would be someone who wants to live a healthy
lifestyle, shares some of the same interests as me, and has his own
interests that he wants to show me. Oh, and I have two cats, so you
must like cats.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a behavior analyst. My focus is early intervention for young
children with autism. I started a private practice providing early
intervention and am loving running my own business.
I am also always looking at how I can give back more. One of the
ways I decided to do that was I became a foster parent. I have a
beautiful 2 1/2 year old foster daughter living with me. She has
been with me for just over two years now and I am really loving
being a parent.
I am always trying to find ways to enjoy the great outdoors. In the
summer I love to hike, camp, etc.
Making as small a footprint on the world as I can is also a big
goal of mine. I try really hard to be very conscious of my
lifestyle including what I eat, what I buy, what I throw away, etc.
I pay attention to politics and the state of the world.
I also love to have fun. I enjoy wine tasting, eating out with
friends, going to the theater, going on road trips, camping,
cooking, etc. and try to spend as much of my time as I can engaged
in enjoyable activities.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am actually really good at my job. I started a private practice
just over three years ago and it has been very successful so far. I
really love what I do, which I think makes me better at it.
I am a good cook. I have taken a bunch of cooking classes and done
lots of experimenting. I have some very good recipes including a
beer braised short ribs and a roasted butternut squash soup.
I am a good friend. I enjoy keeping close relationships, even with
people I don't see regularly.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books would include Mists of Avalon, Sacajawea, Pope
Joan, and The Lorax (Yes, Dr. Suess has to end up in my favorites).
I also loved the entire Harry Potter series.
Don't laugh, but my favorite TV show is Glee. I also enjoy watching
the food network and cooking channel. It is fun to see new recipes
I want to try. I rarely miss The Daily Show or The Rachel Maddow
I have many favorite foods, but I love Moroccan. I am willing to
try a wide variety of foods, although seafood is actually not my
I have eclectic tastes in music although some of my favorites are
the oldies like Johnny Cash, the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, etc.
Yes I realize that makes me not cool, but oh well.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Food, water, shelter, friends, family, and the ability to spend
time outdoors. Ok, I know those are generic, but really what else
do we need.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Recently I have spent a lot of time figuring out how to expand my
business. I think a lot about the kids I work with and what
strategies will work best for them.
I also spend a lot of time thinking about my foster daughter, what
she needs, and how to make sure she gets nothing but the best that
I can give.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This depends on the week. Sometimes I am out with friends at a
movie or restaurant. I regularly enjoying cooking for my friends
and having dinner parties at my house. Other times I like to just
hang out at home with a good DVD and a glass of wine. These days
they often involve bath time, bedtime stories, singing songs, and
cleaning up the house when the munchkin crashes.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have recently had some medical issues that have caused
unexplained weight gain. Very frustrating. Luckily I think we have
finally figured out the problem so hopefully it will start
reversing. I have also had some back problems that have limited
physical activity, although I luckily am still able to hike and
bike (no running, but hey I didn't like to run anyway).
