My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved here six months ago to make a fresh start in my life after my divorce. I work with people with disabilities, that's been my career of choice since I finished college. I'm very positive and I've made a determined effort to make friends with like minded people.

I work out two or three times weekly. I'm a Libra. My Myers-Briggs personality type is INFJ. That means I'm more of a thinker, preferring my interaction to be more substantial than shallow and I search out harmony and balance. I'm an amateur astronomer and I like to cook and bake. I also enjoy reading, group meditation, dancing and road trips. I'm politically liberal and am agnostic.

I'm looking for someone who is sensitive and affectionate, sensual and enjoys laughter, who is intelligent and honest. Trustworthiness and emotional availability are important traits to me. I want a friendship with loads of mutual respect and smiles and loving glances and touch.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Eating healthy and working on happiness and love. And stargazing. Waiting for someone to fall into my arms and sail with me out of the Sargasso Sea of "unattached and dating". Working on mindfully living in the moment.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening without interrupting, avoiding bad drivers, filling out silly questions while logged on to OKCupid.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes and my voice.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Movies: I love going to the movies, but I find many of the popular movies are simply a variation on the same plot, I like to be surprised by an intelligently written twist or to be led to empathetic contemplation at the Cineplex (tall order, I know).
Some movies I'd loved and don't get tired of are Vanishing Point (1972), The Godfather, The entire Lord of the Ring and Hobbit series, What Dreams May Come, Across The Universe, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, The Empire Strikes Back, Clerks, Saving Arizona, Local Hero, The Maltese Falcon, and Yellow Submarine. "Movies are magic" - Cleavon Little, Blazing Saddles.

Musically, my tastes are wide ranging; The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, ELO, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago, Bruce Springsteen, The Beach Boys, The Bangles, Jimmy Buffet, Queen, Weird Al, Type O Negative, Scott Joplin, Beethoven, Mozart, Woodie Guthrie, Enya, The Doors, The Carpenters, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, early Elvis, R.E.M., Neil Young and Crazy Horse and many more are in my music folder

Food: I'm a sensualist with food, I enjoy it all. My go-to when I am out is Panda Express. Chinese and Thai food are my favorites, I love the many different textures and tastes from that part of the world. Mexican, Italian, German...I don't think I've met a culture who had food I despised. I'm still waiting to try an Indian restaurant with a date. I've even enjoyed Loving Hut, a local place that specializes in Vegan cuisine. But, I can eat there and then enjoy the terrific fries and something from Burgerville tomorrow. I'm all over the map foodwise. I grew up on Cajun food and miss Mom's seafood gumbo. And her lemon meringue pies.

Shows: I don't own a TV. I will stream Masterchef, The Simpsons or The Big Band Theory occasionally. I enjoy the occasional Netflix marathon. Every now and then I'll go to a Star Trek episode binge when fellow Trek fans are hosting. I used to watch The Walking Dead and would like to get back into it with a friend, the same for Dr. Who. I loved Firefly. I listen to KOPB and I really like the Ted Radio Hour.

Books: OMG, I read constantly and hungrily, my favorites change as book clubs introduce me to new writers or series. 'A Confederacy of Dunces' is my favorite fiction novel, 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress' is my favorite science fiction novel, 'The Art of Happiness' is my favorite self-help book, and 'The Stand' is my favorite horror novel. I prefer to read science fiction or horror, my tastes range from Asimov to LeGuin to Brin to Heinlein to Zelanzy. I like Whitley Strieber, Dean Koontz and Stephen King for my horror/weirdness. I'm afraid you'll never get me to leave if you take me to Powell's, I've yet to venture there.

On a typical Friday night I am

I like that I don't have to walk a cat outside in the rain and cold three times a day!
