Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a professor and I love to cook and dine out. I love hanging out
with friends. I'm not huge on the club scene, though every once in
a while I get an itch.
So many people have come into my life, most leaving handprints on
my heart, a few leaving scars. But they have all made me who I am.
I want to find friends who will contribute toward who I am going to
be. Experiencing the world with friends is one my greatest joys. It
is so much more fulfilling and amazing that way. I have a
monogamous boyfriend whom I adore. But we are both individuals. We
have mutual friends, but also have our own friends, and I want to
expand my circle.
One great joy is entertaining friends, usually when I am cooking a
meal and my partner is helping get the presentation perfect. I am a
pretty darn good cook, often recreating meals I've enjoyed at a
restaurant. Though I am not a baker. Baking requires precision and
following a recipe. I use recipes for inspiration, but cook with my
senses of sight, smell, and taste.
I tend to be attracted to an all-American look. Smiles make me
melt. A full head of hair and toned body are great too. But mostly
it is positive energy (youthful energy) that attracts me. I can be
moody like anyone, but positive energy usually keeps me positive.
I'm not bubbly, but I tend to see the best in everyone. Sometimes I
get steamrolled because of that, but I remain positive.
I don't mean to be rude, but please have a picture of your face in
your profile. Not one covered in a hat and/or sunglasses, but your
face. Eyes are the windows to the soul and I like looking at them.
Everyone is attractive in one way or the other...unless they cover
their beauty up.
If you'd like to get together for a glass of wine and hang out,
let's be friends. My boyfriend doesn't like going to the movies,
but I do. If you're up for that, that would be good.

Either way is a joy for me.
