My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m cooperative, conscientious and incorrigibly curious, passionate yet pragmatic, enthusiastic and extroverted. I’m a devoted logophile, voracious reader, news junkie and unapologetic card-carrying member of the ACLU. I’m a dogless dog nut, I have a goofball sense of humor and I love adventure, but have always scratched my head at U-Haul’s slogan “Adventure in Moving." (Really?! That sounds like a bad thing.) My most recent favorite read is "The Time Traveler's Wife". I love the creative way the author plays with temporal shifts. For non-fiction, I found "Tales from the Underground" absolutely ravishing. When I want brain candy, I curl up with Janet Evanovich.

I'm a classical singer, but I also love to put Boston or Norah Jones on my killer stereo and fling myself about my living room. I'd love to learn partner dance so bonus points if you're willing to teach me or take a class together. I lived in France and Germany and speak both languages, sort of. (I need a nice long trip to refresh!) I'm plenty busy what with my regular job, church job (Yes! They actually pay me to sing in church!), reading, knitting, cooking and watching movies. With all the great cultural opportunities that abound in Seattle, it's tempting to wallow, but I do best when I balance going out with quiet time at home. I'm a happy person and enjoy my own company but as outgoing and tactile as I am, I'd like to find a life partner.

If you are cheerful and compassionate, we could click. I would swoon if you’re staunch but spontaneous, intrepid yet introspective, and have humor without hubris. Language and literature are pretty fundamental to my life, so if you mix 'n' match homonyms or misplace your apostrophes, I don't think we'd be well suited. I enjoy travel but not commuting and can't get enthused about island living or trekking over the hills and through the woods to meet my sweetie, so please be located within ten miles of Ballard.

I'm gearing up to retire in a few years and salivating at the prospect of moving to another maritime climate with more consistent sun. I'm hoping to embark on that phase of life with someone loyal and true by my side. If you are ready to craft a deep connection with a partner and my profile strikes a chord, I’d love to hear from you!

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Personal growth is very important to me so I read non-fiction and I enjoy discussing what I learn. I don't have time right now but when I retire in a few years, I look forward to tutoring illiterate adults to read. I don't have any children so I make a point of connecting with young people in my church choir and have ongoing relationships with several of them in which we all gather at my house to cook and share what we prepare. I had dinner recently with one of the young men who no longer has time to join us to cook now that he is in graduate school and it was he who suggested this site. (You learn the most interesting things from kids!)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a bit of a perfectionist and while I've learned to moderate that tendency so I am able to complete projects, quality results remain important to me and always will. This applies to all my activities, ranging from my job to cooking and knitting, and being fair and reasonable in relationships.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People tell me that I'm quirky, unusual and one of a kind. I'd love to get outside myself and observe truly objectively, but of course that's never going to happen so I just keep working on trying to see other points of view.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Who could choose?! As a classical musician, I suppose I would take Bach's B minor Mass to a desert island, but I would be sorry indeed to give up Blind Faith, Jane Monheit, the Beatles, Norah Jones, Dire Straits, Leo Kottke, etc etc. I enjoy all types of cuisine and any show put on by the Village Theater in Issaquah is sure to be well done. I enjoy a variety of movies, ranging from funny and offbeat (I loved "Safety not Guaranteed.") to what I call slice of life movies about ordinary people ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" was a real winner) to suspenseful (I really enjoyed "Arbitrage."). I can't even scratch the surface on books! I have a list but it grows faster than I can whittle it down. When I was much younger, the realization that I could never finish all the good books I'd like to read was frustrating until it dawned on me that to finish would mean I'd run out. Horrors! I have enormous admiration for the accomplishments of Temple Grandin as described in her memoirs and I love anything by Michael Pollen, Malcolm Gladwell, Valita Vinson, etc. The list goes on and on.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Healthy, interesting food. Well-written books of course. My brothers, whom I will love to the end of time. Dear friends. Music. Being in nature.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I am endlessly curious so this depends on the circumstances in which I find myself. I'm interested in new discoveries in science and their ramifications; arcane bits of trivia fascinate me; I'm always trying to figure out what makes people tick; and I delve into projects such as figuring how to adjust a knitting pattern to make it come out the way I want it to or contemplating what I might do differently to improve a recipe. This is another bottomless pit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical. I might stay in and read a good book or watch another episode of "Burn Notice" on my iPad, have a friend over for dinner, go see a movie with my brother or go to a party or a show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love old style cartoons like Bugs Bunny and the Flintstones.

you are educated and intelligent, interested in the world around us, enthusiastic and vigorous but also kind and gentle, and ready and willing to engage in a deep connection with a life partner.

Shamelessly plagiarized from someone else's profile, but I couldn't improve on this: "If you are seeking a pen pal, a little attention/flirtation on the side, 'catfishing,' or can't follow through with an actual date, in person, after a few email exchanges, kindly engage with someone else."
