Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think I am smart, funny, and even-keeled. A bit shy, especially
around new people. I have a successful career in higher education
and I love my job. It usually doesn't feel much like work at all,
so I enjoy going to work quite a bit. I am a psephologist - yep,

I am divorced, I see lots of women posting about married men so I
thought I should make it clear. Divorce was very un-messy and my ex
and I are co-parenting well together.
I like being outside. I play tennis and basketball and I go to the
gym regularly. I love the beach and am a native southern
Californian. Bars are not really my scene but they are OK from time

Australia. I am going back to Australia early next year and might
be going back a third time next summer.
I am happy basically all the time and I avoid drama as much as
possible. I never hit the panic button. I like going to museums,
parks, and the theater.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
