Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Had hoped to meet someone 'organically', you know, somehow thru
work or friends, but that isn't happening so...here I am, looking
forward to meeting you! In July of this year (2015), I started my
own business as a Personal Chef and caterer. It's something I
always wanted to do. I cook using fresh and in-season ingredients.
My clients keep me busy!! Previously, I had a long and successful
career in Marketing and Advertising. I follow current events
closely and am an unapologetic progressive/liberal. I enjoy 'the
arts', everything from lectures, to live theatre, musicals, opera
and movies (lotsa, lotsa movies!!). I am also non-religious. I have
a fitness club membership and had been going 3+ times per week
(that was before starting the business- lol!) to work off stress.
I'm 'mother' to 3 rescue 'critters', a dog and 2 cats, and son who
lives & works in NYC as a sound designer and also a new
grandmother to his baby daughter, Genevieve.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on eating healthy, staying fit and making the most of
my life. I truly believe that 'happiness is a choice' and am
actively trying to be responsible for my life and happiness. I
belong to a number of local Meet Up groups -- Foodies, Travel, etc.
and as a result, I've gone to some great area restaurants and
traveled (Florence in 2012). In January 2013, I attended the
Inauguration in DC with a college girlfriend and had a great time.
Next? She and I are going to Hawaii, Seattle and Vancouver in
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a great cook! I'm funny, quick-witted and thoughtful. I
consider myself to be analytical and a problem-solver (better with
your problems than mine! It's easier when you're not living it,

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I watch/go to a lot of movies and thru NetFlix, am having fun
binge-watching series past and current. I've come to realize that I
am a hopeless romantic (seeking same, btw!) and want to be in love
again with a confidant, loving, emotionally accessible man. I'd
like to take weekend trips away, laugh, explore, eat good food,
drink great wine and enjoy each other's company. Weekends these
days are spent doing yard work and general rehabbing of a house I
own in Westmoreland County. So very peaceful. Otherwise, weekend
mornings you'll find me drinking coffee at my local favorite
coffeehouse. I've joined a number of MeetUp groups and have gotten
to sample same great area restaurants, take arts classes and
travel. Cooking is one of my hobbies (and avocation). I love to
cook with garlic -- roasts, pesto, grilled meats & fish, fresh
veggies! I'm much more a savory than sweet girl!!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cable TV, car, cell phone, computer/iPad, Santoku knife, debit
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Meeting an intelligent, thoughtful and emotionally available guy
who will take my breath away. Where ARE you?!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Exhaling after a long & demanding week. Making dinner in a
leisurely fashion, catching up on some DVR'd shows, watching Real
Time with Bill Maher! (But, wishing I had plans with you! ;-)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I love to take weekend naps -- glorious!!
