Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am currently single only because I choose to be. Why waste your
time with the wrong person when you could be with the right one? I
have been told I am selective and I hope you are too. Deciding whom
to commit your life to should not be taken lightly. I have been
told I am feisty but I prefer to think of it as having spirit and
passion. My friends tell me I am multi-faceted. I hope they mean
like a well cut diamond that sparkles in the light!
I am adventurous and spontaneous. If there is something I want to
see or do you can bet I will find a way. I love to travel and
experience new locations and meet new people. You can find me doing
more cultural activities such as the theatre, movies, ballet,
opera, concerts and fine dining. There is the occasional game of
golf. I love the water so boating, fishing, hot springs and the
beach are all more than acceptable. Fine dining and a glass of wine
are great as are the quiet nights spent at home. I am also a
fantastic cook and time spent in the kitchen with someone special
makes the meal special, rather than just well-prepared.
I am a former sous chef but now I am simply what is known as a
"foodie". I love to cook and enjoy exploring and indulging in
different foods. I take my health and what I eat very seriously as
should you. Mostly it is organic or all natural, and whenever
possible it is from scratch and not a can or processed. I am human
though, and I have a fondness for dessert.
Eating naturally or organic does not mean that I am a vegetarian. I
do eat meat but it is limited.
For meat, I tend to eat poultry and fish. Rarely beef and never
pork. I do have a mild allergy to wheat and dairy products (milk,
cheese, cream, etc.) so when possible I eat alternatives or avoid
it altogether. I love my vegetable juicer!
I hear repeatedly what a great catch I am and how I will make
someone very happy someday. That someone might be you. Are you
willing to take the chance? I am looking for the man who completes
the picture. Not completes me, as I am complete on my own, but is
my soulmate. I find "playing the field" to be rather disheartening.
I know if I like and could be attracted to someone almost instantly
after the initial contact. My entire life I have always known what
I like and want. I don't waste time being involved in relationships
that aren't and won't go anywhere just for the sake of being with
someone. When I am involved with someone it is because I truly want
to be with them and I will give 110% to the relationship.
Committing to spend the rest of your life with someone should not
be taken lightly and I intend to make the right decision the first
I am rather old fashioned and expect to not only be treated like a
lady but also be courted, especially in the beginning of the
relationship. Romance and chivalry are not dead! I do not have
children and I prefer you to not either. If you do have children, I
prefer them to be older than 12 or you to have shared
You also take your health seriously so you are not overweight,
smoke, are a drug user or a heavy drinker. If you don't respect
your own body you will never be able to respect me.
It would be a bonus if you are an animal lover, especially dogs.
You also try to make a difference in this world and are open minded
to all viewpoints and beliefs.
I am 5'11" so please be at least 5'9" or taller.
This all may sound rather harsh but I am actually a very sensitive
and compassionate person and you should be too. Let's not forget
honest and loyal also. It is so much simpler to say what you desire
and expect upfront. Good communication leads to good results. I do
make exceptions to these guidelines but only for exceptional men so
make sure you are exceptional before asking me to make an
I thought I would give this service a shot because I know I expect
a lot from the man I am with and a lot of men nowadays seem very
lazy about the dating process not to mention disrespectful. I have
no time or place for that in my life. Physically I tend to
gravitate towards the cultured man that takes pride in his
appearance. Mentally, I seek a lively intelligent rapport.
Enjoyment of a deep mind-bending conversation but yet the ability
to relax and have fun is a necessity.
It doesn't matter where you are located or your age. Overcoming
distance is really the easiest challenge any relationship worth
having is faced with.
The age range is just a guideline. It is more important to be
mentally and emotionally compatible whatever your age.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I returned to school a couple years ago and I am now a Senior!! I
transferred from the University of Montana to Fort Hays State
University in Hays, KS for spring 2014. FHSU allows me to get the
same degree online as I was at UM for 1/4 of the price.
I also just received my certification as a health coach from INL.
That is the direction I want my career to head towards.
I am also doing the final editing on my book manuscript before it
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Whatever I put my mind too! Obviously, I am an excellent cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told it's my eyes and smile. Also, how I look much
younger than my age as well as my inner strength.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
When I have time to read it's usually a thriller by an author like
Stephen King. I also like legal thrillers such as by David
I enjoy most types of music including top 40, 80s, classic rock,
rock, disco, classical, r&B, country and hip hop. I said hip
hop and not rap...there is a difference. Please learn the
difference before you hate and discriminate. Although there is the
occasional rap song. My CD collection contains everything from A -
Z. I love music. I especially love music that makes you want to
I enjoy movies that make you think or have a good surprising twist.
Not horror, but psychological suspense. The ones that could be
true...The Sixth Sense or Silence of the Lambs are examples. For my
romantic side, When Harry Met Sally is my all time favorite movie.
The list is not complete without The Notebook and Titanic.
Ryan Gosling, Meg Ryan, Patrick Dempsey and Matthew McConaughey are
a few of my favs.
I don't own a TV...when I watch a movie I either stream or DVD
I usually follow the Coast to Coast radio show. There is so much in
this world that is unexplained, undiscovered or covered up.
I enjoy most culinary styles except for the overly spicy. You can't
taste the food if your mouth is burning! I have a fondness for
Sushi, Italian and French. I tend to avoid most Mexican. I love
I do have very healthy eating habits keeping it natural or organic
whenever possible. I tend to make a lot from scratch...however I
tend to eat mostly paleo.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
in no particular order..
oops that was 7 but all are equally important to me!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
the path that the Universe has put me on and why.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am usually curled up with a Netflix movie on Friday. This is my
guaranteed downtime. I am not into bars so if I don't spend that
time with a friend or my family then I de-stress with a movie.
However, if there is a cultural activity or something else going on
then that is where I will be.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never thought I would still be single at my age.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we are a great match. Please do not be intimidated
because I have never married. I have overcome significant
challenges in my past which is where my attention needed to be,
instead of dating. I also intend to get it right the first time.
