Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I moved to Oregon almost 4 years ago - isn't it amazing
Those who know me best would say I am kind, empathetic to others,
giving, and strong. I like being independent but like being
pampered too, like most women, I guess. :)
I'm not really a "girly" girl, but am equally comfortable in
skirt/stilettos or jeans/hiking boots. Or my personal favorite -
long skirt and no shoes. :) Being barefoot on grass is one of
life's greatest pleasures. :)
I believe life is a gift and happiness comes in the many small
things every day.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a demanding job, but when I'm not at work, my focus is on my
kids and being open to new experiences. I enjoy hiking, cycling,
yoga, wine tasting, trying new restaurants, and
I'm also on a dragon boat team. So, don't be deterred by strong
arms and back muscles. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being sensitive to others' needs
Being open to life's possibilities

My enthusiasm and my smile
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books: fantasy, mostly. Robert Jordan, George RR Martin,
Tolkien. I also enjoy historical fiction and am not ashamed to say
I have read every Harry Potter book several times. :)
I don't watch a lot of tv, but love Breaking Bad, House of Cards,
Game of Thrones, and Downton Abbey. Pretty much anything with
multi-dimensional characters (well, that doesn't apply to Downton
Abbey, I just love that show!).
Being from the Southwest, I love spicy food! Since coming to
Oregon, I have really taken a liking to Thai food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People who are important to me
I'm a rebel, so l will also add:
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How my life is, how I want it to be, and how to enrich others'
lives. Basically I spend a lot of time trying to be the best person
I can be and make the most of this crazy wild ride we call life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On Fridays I don't have my kids, I may meet friends for happy hour
and then maybe dancing. If I'm hiking the next day, I'll spend a
quiet evening at home with my dog and maybe a glass of wine.
If it's a Friday with my kids, what we do after dinner depends on
the season. Usually Friday is picking up take-out and watching a
movie on the couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an open book but this is too much...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are interested in some companionship - dinner, coffee, a
I am not interested in a hookup or finding "the one" so please
don't message me if you are on either end of the spectrum. I am
also NOT interested in a bi or poly situation. And if you're
married, save your time. While meeting other women may be what you
and your wife have decided is good for your relationship, I'm not
interested, but best of luck to you.
My apologies if I sound a little jaded here, but OKC has taught me
some things and I'm learning - better to save everyone's time up
front, don't you agree? :)
