Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a recently retired art teacher. Born and raised in Wisconsin,
living in Tempe since 2004. I enjoy art galleries, museums, and
other arts activities. I am not that much of an outdoor person
other than for walking. I don't follow any sports. Now that I have
a ton of free time, I am staying up late and sleeping late, working
on some art stuff.
I am a liberal Democrat who is pretty fed up with congress and the
Tea Party crackpots.
I am looking for someone in the Phoenix area over 50 but not older
than 64 if possible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Geez, how many questions are there to answer? ??
I mentioned, I have been doing some artwork. I have a lot posted on
FB and Pinterest as Noreen Strehlow. You can also Google me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am good at computer graphics, drawing, embroidery, calligraphy,
design, writing, and keeping busy. I am rarely bored as there is
usually something I can do to occupy my time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, I guess it's that I'm short, rounded, and a lot older. I am
usually happy, calm, and easy going.
Just had the red hair choppedoff. I keep trying to go natural, but
so far it hasn't lasted for too long before I go back to red. FYI:
I was born blonde
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have read a lot of the classics and a few choice sci-fi
anthologies. I especially like Ray Bradbury short stories and
HHGTTG by Douglas Adams. Way too many movies to list. I got hooked
on Harry Potter but can also enjoy a good foreign film. Music isn't
something I have to have on except in the car. I enjoy most genres
but am not fond of death metal, gangster rap, or country western. I
am not stuck in the past so I also don't enjoy "golden oldies.
I enjoy good Chinese food, steak, and other not spicy food. I like
places where you can get breakfast anytime because I am not up that
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Cable TV
4. Laptop (although I don't use it that much)
5. Art Supplies
6. Bed (no camping)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Things I can create.
★ Lately I have been thinking about how many men on this site claim
to be from the US, but their grammar belies the fact. I am used to
guy's spelling and can usually spot a "fake." Also, if your photo
is too far away and looks like a generic "modeling" shot, I
probably won't think it's you, so don't even bother trying to fool
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going to an early dinner with my daughter and son in law. Then
wishing I was going to a comedy show or something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I'm mostly an open book. I did a lot of online dating in the early
days of Match.com, etc. and wrote a lot about my experiences.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are retired or at least have some free time and like stand up
comedy, improv, or museums. You would enjoy a good conversation
with someone who likes art and history.
