Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I tend to be a private person, but I want to share everything with
the special person in my life. It's nice having one person at least
who "gets" you, and as you well know, that is hard to find and
takes a while to develop.
I was raised in the Midwest and tend to have typical midwestern
values of having a good work ethic, valuing financial stability
leaning towards conservatism, and being a bit stoic and reserved
outwardly. However, I am a bleeding heart socially and believe
strongly in having a safety net for "the least of these." I am
warm, kind-hearted and passionate privately and will cuddle up next
to you as much as you want me to.
I value my education and am proud of what I have accomplished. I am
also proud of being direct in my speech - sometimes even shockingly
so (just ask my boss). I am not always politically correct, though.
You will know where you stand with me and where I stand on pretty
much every subject that I care about.
It's important to me to like my job (I currently do) but I am not a
workaholic...I know when to leave the office.
I love to read and don't tend to watch much TV.
I am divorced (amicably). I tend to get along better with men who
have had significant long-term relationships (not necessarily
married but marriage-like).

home most of the time now. Ready to rediscover what has changed in
Raleigh since I've been gone!

I like most types of food, but like many Midwesterners I wasn't
raised to be a real foodie, so it is a surprise to my family how
much ethnic food like Thai that I prefer these days. The one thing
I have tried several times and just can't develop a liking for is
