Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I bring laughter, funny stories, romance, passion, great style and
conversation to the man who captures my heart. I am a hotel and
room service kind of woman, but I also appreciate the rustic things
in life, so I'm just as comfortable in a cabin retreat. I am
flexible and patient, but I don't suffer fools. I've learned that
intelligence is the ability to thrive no matter where my feet are
Life is too short for arguments, but I will stick up for the
underdog! An avid reader and world traveler, with friends of all
ages around the globe. I meet no strangers and I am open to diverse
I've lived in large and small cities and towns in the Midwest on
the east coast, and in the Pacific Northwest.
Currently, I am semi retired, but work as a consultant in nonprofit
capacity building for local and national nonprofits. My work has
taken me around the world, but mostly to China since 1995.
I miss being connected with a man in a special way, but I am very
happy on my own. I have learned the hard way that it takes a very
good man to be better than no man at all. Are you that very good
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is fulfilled by great family and friends, acts of faith,
and the privilege of working in a great career that helps to make
life better for millions by helping a few nonprofits work smarter.
I read a lot and stay abreast of current affairs. I also have fun
by playing cards (bid whist, spades, hearts) and chess on
occasion-used to be a decent player, but haven't played in a very
long time. I enjoy friends, travel and great music- live and at
home. And I take life as it is...and it is wonderful...not perfect,
but joyous; it's about attitude.
As long as I have options and opportunities I am a happy lady. But
it would be very nice to share life with a great guy who is a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding options and solutions to fix problems; strategic thinking;
transforming nonprofit organizations, thinking outside the box;
writing; cooking and baking; being a good friend; and maintaining
romance and intimacy in a relationship.

I am a jazz fan, and just recently discovered jazz vocalist and
composer Gregory Porter.
I love excellent, healthy food. Love to cook as well. I have
finally learned a balanced approach to food.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I can do without most things if necessary 'cause things don't
control my happiness. But I'd rather not do without my faith,
family/friends, good music; travel; quiet, books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Getting involved with the gun control movement and how to end
bullying in schools. I think about what this next chapter of my
life should focus on and realize that embracing life and new things
keeps me connected, energetic and eternally youthful in spirit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
...so glad it's Friday. I am at dinner with friends, at a movie or
sipping on wine at a jazz club or just hanging out at home
listening to music or watching TV. Actually, I am trying to get
more exercise, so I ride my recumbent bike WHILE watching
TV...often, well...sometimes...OK...not as much as I should, but
I'm making progress. Honest!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like good laughs, romance, someone with a brain, who speaks her
mind, but never diminishes your manhood; who understands the power
of surrendering to the man she adores; but NOT if you are under
5'10" with a short man's complex, or over 5' 10" with a short man's
complex, are mean spirited, not fun or adventurous, and stuck back
in the '70s! And for goodness sake, don't message me if you want to
experience some fantasy with a black woman!
