My self-summary
Eternally optimistic, I'm giving this one more chance.

I am... A divorced, suburban mom. A reader and thinker with a dark side. Well educated and well read. Politically liberal, personally traditional. INFJ. A dog lover. Somewhat of a homebody. Devoted first to my kids. Amicable with the ex and share custody. Not a big drinker or party person. Affectionate, physical, a communicator. A beach girl. A words person. A believer that helping others is the essence of life. Interested in psychology and what makes people tick. Not very materialistic. I work out regularly and enjoy it, but it's not my life.

You are...probably a father (I tend to have more to talk about with fellow parents, although not having kids is not a deal breaker). Well educated. Relatively fit but not obsessive about working out. Reflective and not arrogant. Witty and unself-conscious enough to be silly. Not under 30 and looking for Mrs. Robinson. Not easily intimidated by a woman who speaks her mind. Passionate about doing something that in some way brings good to others. Understanding of the juggling act that is parenting/working/dating (on a limited budget). A grown-up who does not play games. Ultimately looking for a long term relationship but patient with this process.

In my view, the most important factor in making a relationship successful is shared laughter, and potential for this is nearly impossible to determine via OKC. Therefore, I prefer to meet and chat over a drink rather than endlessly scour online profiles.
What I’m doing with my life
Teaching, coaching, raising my children. Trying not to repeat my mistakes. Learning to live in the moment. Celebrating the people I love. If I'm being honest, I'm spending a helluva lot of time doing laundry and cleaning up messes...

The first things people usually notice about me
Eyes. Smile. Cleavage. I've been told I'm intimidating...wtf?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Doctor Zhivago
Books: currently reading James Baldwin essays and teaching 1984 (it's more relevant now than ever). I read The Post and The New Yorker regularly.
Shows: Dexter, Big Bang, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Orange is the New Black
Music: see below
Food: not a foodie, but I appreciate your cooking, and I love dessert ; )
The six things I could never do without
Laughter, coffee, books, my dog, hugs, some order in my life
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why all the men on here have a "higher than average" sex drive and sense of confidence. And what's with the societal fascination with running in the mud? How I can develop healthier eating habits without having to cook. Whether the apostrophe has gone the way of the dinosaur and whether I should just LET THAT GO.

On a more serious note, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to be a better parent. Also, where is the line between "I like my alone time" and "damn it, I'm lonely", and which side of it am I currently sitting on?
On a typical Friday night I am
Driving to whatever sporting practice or social event my daughters have to attend. Trying to figure out how to fit in dinner and a walk for the dog. All you guys out there climbing Everest in your free time: You would find me stultifying on Friday nights. But fear not! Saturday nights I occasionally dare to be slightly more entertaining.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like top forty music. Also, I spend way too much time window shopping on this absurd website, which is embarrassing.

You feel like it? If you don't have a picture, you're married, or you're just looking for a good time, I won't respond.
