I'm not looking for pen-pals. Thanks.
I'm very ambitious and creative, good at a lot of things, and often
bite off more than I can chew. I live with my (male) partner, my
13-year-old daughter, a couple of housemates, and two cats. I'm a
professional organizer and occasional artist. I used to be a writer
and editor, and I have four books published. I struggle a bit with
my health/energy and stress levels, but overall I tend to be
optimistic and enjoy life in general. I rarely have enough money,
but I haven't had a "real job" for about 15 years, and I like it
I'm looking for a not-too-intense, yet affectionate and supportive,
secondary relationship, mainly because my boyfriend has a lower sex
drive than I do, and over the last seven monogam-ish years I've
often found myself quite frustrated. However, I am not looking for
random hookups with strangers, no matter how hot you are. So if you
message me, please have some common interests in mind that we
P.S. I am looking for a lover with my boyfriend's wholehearted
approval. If we hit it off, you'll be expected to meet him
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Keeping my organizing business going is currently my main focus. I
also spend time with my boyfriend and kid, take care of the house,
make art, read books, watch occasional movies/TV, and look at
stupid stuff on the Internet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, organizing, making art, being clever off-the-cuff, being a
mom (according to my kid), baking, getting places on time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I talk a lot, and I'm straightforward. Some have called me blunt. I
don't think my appearance is all that noteworthy. I have nice eyes,
but the glasses hide them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Robbins, the Harry Potter series, anything by Nicholson Baker, and

DiFranco, Lady Gaga, Joni Mitchell, and sometimes even a guy or
Food: I am not very picky. I love Japanese food, desserts, fresh
fruit, buffalo wings, good burgers, salads, pickles, cheese, crusty
bread... damn, now I need a snack.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, food, water, gravity, sunlight, and an Internet connection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Money, unfortunately. I wish I didn't have to. It's boring and
My health/eating habits. Always trying to improve.
My kid. Always trying to be a better parent.
The Big Picture questions: What's it all about, for me? What do I
want out of life? How can I nurture my connection to the Divine?
How do I find the balance between being ambitious and being a
I have a therapist to help me sort this stuff out. :-)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Almost always at home, either resting up, goofing around online,
watching TV/movie, spending time with my kid, boyfriend, or
housemates, maybe doing some dishes/laundry. Exciting, huh?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I think admitting that I like Lady Gaga should be good enough.
