My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I believe getting to know someone requires time and shared experience. I see this profile as a way to help you decide if you are interested enough to meet in person. I’m not interested in a virtual relationship. I spend too much time on a computer at work to spend the rest of my time on it, too.

So let’s pretend you spied me in the grocery store or on the light rail or at a fund-raiser. What would you see? And if we struck up a conversation, what would it be like?

In the grocery store you’d see a short brunette dressed in jeans, a t-shirt and maybe a fleece lugging a big bag of dog food (NB: I had to put my sweet dog down recently. Very sad, but she led a good long life) to the check out. If you offered to help, she'd gladly accept as she has no problem with men opening doors, etc. (but don't be fooled, she's been pretty independent in her roles as navy wife and family breadwinner. She has even gapped a spark plug or two, back when you could tell what was what under the hood.) She’d smile at the you and the clerk and engage in lively banter on nearly any topic and thank you very much for your help.

On the light rail you might see her in jeans heading to the airport. Maybe she's reading (on her Kindle if she’s traveling, though she prefers actual books), but likely looking out the window, maybe taking a quick meditation break. She would not be playing a game on her phone though there is a chance she’d be playing Nertz on her iPad. She’d likely be standing if she’s going to the airport since she’ll be spending hours sitting on the plane.

If you saw her at fund-raiser, she'd be wearing make-up, either a gown or a pretty cocktail dress (not necessarily black) with killer black suede pumps she bought in Italy in 1984 (her comfy flats are in the car). If you asked her to dance she'd smile and say yes, thank you. "Why do you come to these things?" you might ask. She'd tell you she's a sucker for a silent auction and a live band.
