Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am smarter than the average bear. I'm ggg and open minded - not
simple minded. I had my kiddo later in life so I am not able to
flit off at a moment's notice. I have my priorities straight and I
abhor brussel sprouts. I think all people are created equal and
that everyone deserves equal rights - not separate - equal! I
believe in social justice, personal responsibility and the
principal of Occam's razor. I can't go see a movie at a theater
without consuming popcorn. Star Trek before Star Wars. Sundays =
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a pretty great life, good job, wonderful child and lifelong
friends. I work for a local not-for-profit organization and I'm
lucky to say that after 20+ years I still love my job. I'm a single
mom and that takes up a lot of my free time but I'd like to carve
out space for a more personal connection with a partner. I'm not in
a hurry to jump into a serious relationship but that is my end
goal. I think healthy relationships take time to develop.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Honesty, Scrabble, being a Mom, making reservations as opposed to
cooking (ok, I can technically cook...but it is not passion of
mine), map reading, playing Devil's advocate, reading aloud,
defending something I believe in.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile a lot. I'm opinionated but very much interested in what you
have to say. I'm sarcastic but not mean. I'm adventurous and

Food...Thai, Indian, SUSHI!, french fries, pretty much anything
except heavy doses of Chinese or Pho. Love the Lonestar, or a good
peanut butter and banana sandwich.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My child, knowledge, healthy discourse, beer, sunshine, library
card and toilet paper. Yes...I can count but I'm an over achiever
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where has common sense gotten to??? Will a new Apple product come
out before my contract is up? Why on earth is there not a new
version of the Star Trek Franchise on tv yet??? On what level did I
park my car? God I hope I live to 100 so I can see what gets
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging with my offspring or going to a movie.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Like me, you want a monogamous relationship. You have a profile
picture...seriously, you are on a dating site...not an MI5
recruiting website, put up a public picture already! You live
in/near Ottawa. I'm way too old to want a penpal...You don't
describe yourself as "looking younger" etc - be ok with whatever
age you are --- that is sexy - not desperately trying to be 10
years younger than you are. You get along well with kids and
animals. Your friends/co-workers would describe you as a down to
earth, a really good guy. You are intelligent but can be goofy. You
believe in equal rights for all, of course including LGBT. You are
not looking for someone to "complete you". I am complete, I hope
you are too...
Who are you looking for?
