Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My day-to-day lifestyle, while fulfilling and rewarding, doesn't
really provide the opportunity to meet people. I love being outside
enjoying sports, activities, and nature in general. Folks have told
me I have a dry sense of humor, and I enjoy high-class as well as
earthy entertainment. Intellectual conversation is great, as is
getting down and dirty. Maybe that means I have eclectic
My educational background favors science and technology, but I also
love the arts: music (playing instruments and singing) and acting
have always been a part of my life.
I'm a passionate person but I always listen to what folks have to
say and prefer not to dominate a conversation. While I'm not pushy,
I'm not ambivalent about most issues, either. Being fair is really
important to me; I prefer to judge people for who they are and not
what they appear to be.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have my own web site design business, which I started because I
wanted to be home with my two kids as they grew up.
I also run on average 40+ miles a week, and I train and compete at
eventing (equestrian triathalon) and running (road) races. In the
winter, I love skiing. While not experienced at it, I'm definitely
game to try hiking, camping, and other vigorous activities.
On a day to day basis, I'm responsible for managing several estates
so I'm keeping my mind pretty active, too!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love to cook and have gotten pretty good at making a variety of
entrees, side dishes, and desserts, but I'm always game to learn
new recipes and ways to cook.
I pride myself on being pretty organized and a problem-solver,
especially if creativity is necessary. Sensitivity and perception
are very important to me; getting to know a man so that I can
easily intuit how he's going to feel or react is intimate and

When I wore my hair differently, I was the spitting image of the
Mona Lisa. Don't know if that's good or bad!
I don't particularly have a Boston accent, unless I'm ti-ahd and
then my speech tends to lose Rs where they should go and puts them
in where they don't belong. I'm working on that ...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Chocolate, by far, reigns. And the higher the percentage (pure
cocoa), the better! But I love lots of different foods, and
different cuisines. I'm game to try most anything ... but
double-check with me before you offer haggis or Rocky Mountain
Since I "came of age" during that time, '70s-'80s music is my
preferred rock music, and I also enjoy classical and some
I like the tv show Frasier a lot. Plays and musicals are fabulous
(if well done), movies can be great, and of course, there are many
wonderful works of literature. There's no particular genre of
entertainment I love or dislike; individual productions are what
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think we all can agree that there are certain obvious essentials,
like air, water, our own children (if we have them). So, given
1. Chocolate (did I mention that already?)
2. Thoroughly satisfying intimacy (mirrors are helpful!)
3. Dry, witty sense of humor (sarcasm included)
5. Change of seasons
6. Loving pets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How I can improve being a parent, what decisions to make to best
secure my future, how I can add excitement to my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Eager to have fun! I love going to the theater, dinner, other
evening activities (concert), I also find less "serious" activities
fun, like laser tag, miniature golf, mystery dinners/parties. I'm
open to pretty much anything that isn't unpleasant.

I don't mind being first to reach out and contact you on OKC. I'm
here to meet in person, not just type at my computer. Oh, and as a
kid, I played the accordion (don't hit me!).

you. Since you know what I look like from my shots, which are
current and accurate, I want the same information about you.
