Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I prefer having fun to being too serious. If you date me, watch
out: you might acquire at least one affectionate pet name :>). I
love to laugh and will admire your imagination and sense of humor
when they bring out my playfulness. There is a time to be serious,
maybe once a year :>); other than that, let’s enjoy life dancing
and doing other fun things. I hope you like my feminine but
comfortable clothes, especially dancewear, mini skirts, and
anything pink, more than the usual old jeans :>). If you are one
of the chivalrous, respectful gentlemen who fascinate me, on our
dates I will enjoy being a lady even more than usual. Do you
approve of my approaching everything in life creatively? In
addition to being a writer with visual arts experience, I fondly
remember serving as Executive Producer, Production Designer, and
Costumer on an indie narrative feature movie. Directing and
choreographing the 60’s flashback dance scene was unforgettable.
Though not religious, I consider myself spiritual. My friends give
me an A+ in caring and compassion, but I guess everyone’s friends
are the same :>). I will enjoy thinking of ways to show you that
I care. I will admire your muscles and skills if you are a generous
handy guy who likes to fix things and help on projects :>).
Secret shortcut to winning my affections: take me ballroom dancing
often! Eating healthfully and staying trim and fit head my priority
list. I am into holistic health. In addition to ballroom dancing,
Argentine Tango, salsa or swing, let's share some of my varied
interests: athletic activities like City Races and running and
skyscraper stair climbing races, hiking at the beach or at
botanical gardens, and attending football games; musical events
such as Hollywood Bowl and Disney Hall concerts; nature pursuits
including bird watching, photography, beach outings, animal
sanctuaries, and succulent gardening; art exhibits and architecture
tours; opera, ballet, and foreign movies; and pastimes like pool,
Ping Pong, and the board games Blokus and Palabra.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My education includes a master's degree in clinical psychology with
a specialization in mind-body interaction, nutrition, and fitness.
While I occasionally accept clients for health coaching/counseling,
my priority is finishing my overdue second novel :>).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. Being imaginative, honest, playful, perceptive, and a fun
2. Staying fit with daily exercise: various types of PACE cardio
including jogging, gym weight training thrice weekly, & walking
as much as possible. In almost all my track and 5K/10K races, I
have medaled, often coming in first in my division.
3. Experiencing continual computer problems which result in
frequent online dates with smart young nerds at the Geek Squad

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
ONLY if you are a very smart LOCAL respectful gentleman. You like
to tango or ballroom dance or do swing, salsa, etc. You have
diverse creative, athletic, and intellectual interests we can
share. Like me, you enjoy learning new things and are into personal
growth. You love yourself enough to stay trim, eat only healthful
food, and exercise frequently. You earn my admiration and respect
by being patient, communicative, a good listener, and fair and
adept in resolving differences. Fun to be with, you wisely
recognize that it takes time to know each other and to maintain a
happy relationship. Friends first makes sense to you. You avoid
rushing anything and share my feeling that sensuality is an
expression of love, rather than a recreational activity. You want a
committed life partner who is your best friend and lover, there for
you through life’s joys and challenges. Please remember to avoid
writing if you live far away or until your weight is optimal. Thank
