I'm a marriage and family therapist, and I'm fully aware of the irony there, thank you very much. I'm really involved politically -- I knocked on doors in Cleveland to get out the vote during the Obama campaign (what a cool experience that was!) and I've lobbied Capitol Hill a couple of times (also very cool -- I felt like such a CITIZEN!). I'm not rabid about it or anything, but I have strong opinions and I'm not afraid to share them.
I also sing. A lot. In the car, to my kids, and a while ago, in coffeehouses and musicals. LOVE IT. It's a great stress-reliever.
I'm pretty low-maintenance when it comes to dates. Coffee, lunch, dinner (yeah, pretty much anything food-related, and I think men who will cook me a meal are particularly hot), walks, bookstores, performances of any kind. . . listening to live music would be fantastic.
I don't want to live with someone, and I don't want to get married. I've done that, I'm established socially and professionally, I have my kids. They don't need another father, and I'm coming to believe that it takes extraordinary people to make a blended family work. That's not to say that I'm not capable of true connection and intimacy. At this time in my life, though, I'm not looking for domesticity.
