Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I may seem a little serious and shy to those who don't know me, but
can be quite playful and I have a good sense of humor. I like to be
physically active and to check out local cultural and community
events. Living in WNY, there is rarely a weekend without one! I am
mostly satisfied with my life, personally and professionally. I
have never been married and am hoping to meet someone with whom to
share life's ups and downs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work full time in a challenging and fulfilling job I really
enjoy. Because I am a 9-to-5er, I have plenty of time to indulge in
hobbies such as ballroom dancing, hiking, biking, and cross country
skiing (on the rare occasion when it snows). I travel as often as
my time off from work and budget allow and like to spend time in
the kitchen, experimenting on my friends and family!
I’m really good at

of the creative details of an upcoming vacation, a dinner party, or
a family gathering and then sharing the event with my family and/or

are my eyes (blue) and my hair (blondish, curly). I tamed my curls
for most of my life, so sometimes I forget I have them! People also
usually notice that I am quiet/shy around others I don't know very
well. But once I warm up to you, I'm quite a talker!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lately, I have been reading mostly historical fiction and local
history/architecture. I also love magazines and newspapers. I'm a
bit of a news junkie. Out of Africa, Dirty Dancing, and Chicago are
a few movies I will never get tired of watching. Halloween (the
original) and all of those childhood Christmas specials too! I'm
not much of a tv watcher; I am more likely to be listening to NPR.
I will listen to just about any music, but I especially love
anything with Latin rhythms or classical guitar. I like 60's/70's
soul, any good disco song, and 80's "alternative." My food
preferences are just as varied. I'll try most anything and like to
cook many different cuisines.
The six things I could never do without

wanderlust, some kind of daily exercise and fun-loving friends who
have adventurous appetites!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my next travel destination....and food. In my mind, I can't imagine
the one without the other! I also spend a lot of time thinking
about cooking and what recipes I will try next.

never doing the same thing. During the summer I am usually looking
forward to being outside after an air conditioned work week. That
usually means a nice long walk or bike ride along the river or lake
front, listening to an outdoor concert, or a casual dinner or
cocktail with friends at one of Buffalo's great restaurant patios.
If weather doesn't permit such things, I may go ballroom dancing or
get a head start on a weekend project around the house. Depends on
