Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
NOTE: please don't contact me if you are under 40. I'm flattered,
but am looking for someone close to my age. Thank you for
If you are a spiritual smartie pants who loves music and animals,
we will probably get along just fine... :0) I have the brain of a
nerd and the heart of an artist. It also helps if you don't mind me
rattling on about cool medical stuff I'm learning...
I've been a writer, editor, and a teacher. I've been a marketing
director of a TV network. I have been the CEO of my own music
company, where I produced over 200 music events. I'm also a
musician / songwriter / singer / pianist / poet.
I have a BA in comparative literature, music and French. Also have
asociate degrees in biology and chemistry from three years of med
school prerequisites. Now applying to PA school so I can practice
medicine. I enjoy a new challenge. I have a sincere desire to help
people. I am really enjoying learning about how the human body
works. I am also learning a lot about myself. I strive for
self-actualization and am very compassionate.
I love to travel; been to around 16 different countries and have
many travel stories to tell!
I love to laugh and learn and discover new things...very curiosity
driven. My most recent nickname is "MacGyver" because I find
innovative ways to solve problems. I make up my own recipes
(sometimes to rave reviews, sometimes not.)
I am back with renewed faith, optimism, and an open heart! Me in a
nutshell: Paris, not Vegas. Tulips, not roses. Hugs, not drugs.
Hardwoods, not rugs. Poetry, not punctuation. Real, not faux. Less,
not more. Cooking, not looking. Purr, not fur. Kindness, not
blindness. Quiet, not riot. Thinker, not drinker. Artsy, not
I am a snuggleholic who is looking for the right man to pamper. My
massages cure headaches. I am intensely curious and like to try new
things. If I could be any famous person, I'd be Santa Claus.
I buy products not tested on animals. I give to the ASPCA, whose
founder said: the measure of any society is characterized by that
society's treatment of the defenseless. I adore all animals and
volunteered for an animal rescue org for a couple of years. My
match MUST love animals! I am exploring veganism; I need training!
The stuff I've tried so far is fabulous. I can recommend a great
vegan restaurant for those who are interested....
I love music, art and theater. I'm a classically trained pianist
turned songwriter. I have a CD of original music that I call
"spoken word beatnik trip hop." Music soothes my soul and I cannot
imagine life without it. Hope you love it too. I love writing songs
and poetry. I am always excited about discovering new
I am "low maintenance" and very anti-drama. I have a lot of love to
give and I hope I find you soon!
I, in fact, don't want to "relationshop"; I actually want to get da
heck off this site ASAP once I find Mr. Sparky creative
intellectual nerd-word sexy-motivated music-loving man. I am a very
passionate person! We will bring out the best in each other and
make each other smile. You are emotionally available and you want a
long-term relationship. Is that too much to ask? (P.S. I don't
respond to profiles without photos...sorry.)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Pursuing physician assistant school, learning Spanish, working at a
hospital, petting kitties, writing poetry, smiling, driving,
biking, dreaming, ass-kicking, climbing up Maslow's hierarchy...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The best thing about me is compassion...
The worst thing about me is procrastination...LOL
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Way too many books to list. I was an English major and creative sci
fi writing teacher...Big "Confederacy of Dunces" fan.
Way too much music to list. The list is always changing anyway! I'm
a huge Pandora fan. My stations include Afro Celt Sound System,
Brazilian Funk, Cello, Frenchie Radio, Eddie Izzard, Thievery
Corporation, Adele, Jack Johnson, Van Morrison...and I'm a piano
player who likes to noodle out my own songs...
Also love to cook, love to try new ethnic foods (mostly
vegetarian). Love Indian and Thai food.
Not a big fan of TV -- I don't have cable -- but I have to admit I
loved "Breaking Bad," "Grey's Anatomy," and "House." Okay, I will
also admit that I love sci fi, and was blown away by Battlestar
Galactica on NetFlix. Like indie and foreign films much more than
American. Also love old films, where dialog was king and special
effects were an afterthought. Love Coen Bros. Plowing through mega
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"Ask not the meaning of life; rather, ask what do I want my life to
mean?" -- me
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wish I was less introverted. I live in my head sometimes. The
good news is that I'm never bored. LOL A happy happening extrovert
would be good for me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're striving for self-actualization. And you are curious and
kind...and the idea of love doesn't make you barf. You are
passionate about a cause. You are compassionate. You love music,
animals, exploring, and weekend getaways. You are fiercely
intelligent and you know what you want. You have depth and are
You actually read my profile and think we have something in common.
No potheads or alcoholics, please.
Please don't contact me if you are married or separated. I want to
be with someone who is ready for a relationship.
And youngsters, quit emailing me for casual sex. Ain't gonna
happen. Mrs. Robinson does not live here. If you are under 40, I'm
probably not interested.
As an avid fan of testing a theory, I'm going to put a code word in
here and ask you to use it if you email me -- this will show me
that you read my profile...haha! And the word is: kismet.
