My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have realized that I fall in love with friends, not strangers. So if you want to meet someone who will be all twitterpated over you after a few dates I'm not the one. The road to my Love Shack goes through the Friend Zone.

I'm a divorced single mom of two amazingly awesome kids, looking for companionship to go to action and sci-fi movies, concerts, playgrounds, and maybe play the occasional game of pinball.

I have no extended family in the area, and little relationship with most of my relatives. That said, I deeply value and want a family. My kids are great and bring me untold joy, I'm just missing a man to round out the family unit, a partner to share life's triumphs and struggles, someone to share smiles and affection with.

I knit, but I also ride a motorcycle. (though I no longer own my own bike, the weather here sucks too much to justify the expense)

I enjoy going out sometimes but love the comfort of home. I travel for work 3-6 days monthly.

I love dresses, skirts, high heels and all sorts of well cut feminine things but also have a large collection of geeky tshirts and funky sneakers (funky as in cool and offbeat, not stinky foot funk).

I want my space and privacy, at the same time I'm incredibly tactile and love hugs and feeling connected with someone.

I'm an extrovert but can also be incredibly shy. I'm ESFJ.

I don't jog, camp, fish, hunt, or hike. You can, just don't expect me to want to go with you.


I AM an optimist. Sometimes referred to as Hope Junkie.

I am attractive, smart, and direct. This intimidates some men which is kind of silly, I'm just a human being like everyone else. I just want to meet people who want to actually get to know me and aren't just blinded by my exterior appearance. Pretty words are cheap.

I don't play games, life is hard enough without that shit. You can't read my mind, and I can't read yours. If I say something, that is what I mean. I don't play hard to get, I don't do insecure or passive aggressive or controlling. If I say something and you try to figure out what I really mean, you're making things harder than they need to be. If you're unsure, just ask me.

I am looking for someone who will accept and like me for who I am, and isn't looking for a soccer mom or 'Stepford Wife'. Someone intelligent and hard working that I can respect intellectually and ethically. Someone emotionally generous, who can make me feel special without being subservient or acting like my doormat. Someone who can dress for the comicon or a night out, but also knows how to dress (themselves!) for a wedding at the country club or 5-star restaurant. If the idea of dating someone who dresses up as a comic book character to attend a comic book convention makes you uncomfortable or embarrassed to be seen with her, this is not the woman you are looking for. You can go about your business. Move along. You should be an extrovert. Must like kids - you can't just tolerate them. And absolutely 100% no tobacco or drug use, ever.

I am geeky, passionate, and caring
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
taking care of/helping people.
cleaning and organizing garages.
drywall repair.
writing lists.
problem solving.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not sure! Probably my red hair or green eyes which frequently change color to blue or grey depending on my mood. If you see me and my eyes are green, I'm either very happy or very angry. Fortunately angry doesn't happen very often.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my kids
sunshine (promoted from #6 to #2)
good friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What DON'T I think about? Honestly I'd like to think a little less sometimes. One of the things I love about going to get my hair or nails done is that for an hour I don't have to think or be smart or interesting or conversational... the only thing I have to be is on time. It is a rare break from the rest of life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
When the weather cooperates I take the kids to the park and walk while they ride their bikes or scooters, before heading home to grill dinner and play a board game or read books before their bedtime.

When the weather doesn't cooperate, we find indoor diversions, like a DVD or play some Plants vs Zombies instead.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have safety and privacy issues. There are reasons for this, I'm not just irrationally psycho. Promise.

I'm up to date on all my shots.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You aren't too good to drink Starbucks.

You aren't looking for a 'secondary' girlfriend, mistress, or casual hook-up. I don't need online dating to find that.
