Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Last November I was surprised by Corporate Restructuring and have
since found new employment with a client of my former employer. I’m
an optimist so I wasn’t worried. Only spent 3 months without
gainful employment. The RI Dept. of Unemployment is a boondoggle to
say the least.
Now, I work happily from home. I lost my 2 oldest dogs, 15 and
10.5, in July. It’s not been a great year for that sort of thing.
BUT, I have 2 pups, 2 and 1, who keep me going all the time. They
LOVE that I work at home. Yogi and Bear are wonderful
Not into clubs and "the scene"! I prefer places where I can hear
the conversation and not have to shout back. I'm concentrating on
the real, the now, the positive!
I am gregarious and open to new experiences. Love meeting new
interesting people. Dining in or out is good; I love to cook, bake,
and experiment. I enjoy making my own bread. I really enjoy finding
a great bottle of wine at a ridiculously low price. I'm successful
I would like to meet someone who has a strong sense of friendship
and family. I have a varied collection of friends; some on-going
for 35+ years. Loyalty and trust are the keys to a great
relationship. I'm honest, love to laugh even at stupid things,
caring, passionate about my friends and living to enjoy life. I
prefer to be happy and fun. Others like that about me!
I love to travel and the UK is a frequent destination. I have
friends in London and relatives in Devon, Oxford and Northampton. I
like driving in England. It's a brain and dexterity
I enjoy being outdoors; the beach, sailing when a boat is available
(rather fair weather however), body boarding, gardening, picnic on
Indoor activities - Love Scrabble, just sitting around and talking,
planning a trip! There are other fun things to do but we can
discuss those at a later time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working to pay the mortgage. Trying to always better myself as
a person. Helping others sort things out so they can get back to
living. Loving my dog and making sure he gets plenty of exercise.
Tired dog = happy owner!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
~my job. I don't always enjoy it but I love solving problems and
helping others understand how to resolve their problems.
~Cooking! Managed several restaurants and overcame my fear of
concocting a bad dish. You can always toss it out and start over.
Or order pizza.
~Making Friends. I'm gregarious and seem to attract others like
moths to a flame (ha ha).
