Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd like to learn the art of creating a self summary because this
is proving to be a very difficult task, but here goes. The most
important thing in my life is my daughter and being a mother will
always be my focal point, so if this is not something you are
comfortable with then keep going to the next profile. If however,
this is not a deal breaker here are some other facts about me and
I am finally at a point in my life where I am very comfortable
being single and I am not looking for a relationship to fulfill me,
but think good conversation, having a travel companion, and
generally enjoying the company of another individual would be
I believe I can tell almost everything I need to know about someone
by the books on their shelf, and appreciate deep and meaninful
conversation. I am fairly big on social activism and have pretty
strong opinions about social issues, and although I respect the
views and opinions of others, I don't think I would be able to date
someone overly religious, conservative or socially apathetic. I
don't say this to be a bitch, but I find it pretty essential to be
able to have someone who shares at least the basic belief
I love being spontaneous, taking small trips on the weekends, and
thrift store shopping, but also find being at home with a glass of
wine and a good movie or book enjoyable as well. I love being
outdoors and go rock climbing regularly and love pointless road
trips. I do not know how to cook or bake or sew, but I can cut the
grass and change a tire, and think being called intelligent and
insightful more of a compliment than hot or sexy.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a social worker and work as a mental health clinician at a
local non-profit organization. Most importantly, I am a mother
trying to raise a daughter to be a caring and decent human being.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A nice bottle of wine
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Playing Barbie's with my daughter, or spending quality time with
good friends. Although I don't do the whole, get so wasted I can't
remember my name thing anymore, I do think throwing caution to the

all about balance!!!
