Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Never married mom to one terrific kid.
Non traditional and non conformist, but you might not notice that
I'm too conservative for the granolas, but not conservative at all
(i.e. mostly fiscally conservative, definitely morally
I used to like risk and adventure, but am more of a homebody and
more sedate as of late (been there, done that.. have the broken
bones to prove it). I won't say I wouldn't be up for some
adventure, but company plays a big part of that.
I have chickens and various critters, someday I want to live on a
farm. Really, I like non-human animals better than people.

favorites. I like to be where it's warm. Preferably near a beach. I
don't like wearing shoes and would love to wear my flip flops year
I'm looking to get out and meet new people. I find that meeting
interesting and eclectic men is hard to do in day to day life.
Ideally, I'd like to find someone to share the rest of my life
with. However, I'd be happy with stimulating companionship and
I do tend to see the bad (in people, in life) and am annoyed by
people who are overally pollyannaish. Cynical, for sure, and most
things are shades of grey with me.
I am a serial monogamist type, so if you are into multiple partners
or relationships, please don't contact me. Not saying I'm looking
for marriage, just commitment on some level at some point. Unless
you're Viggo Mortensen (or look a hell of a lot like him), in which
case I'd be really happy with any booty call you'd care to throw my
What I’m doing with my life

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I know a little bit about a lot of things, but not a lot.
Staying calm when the shit hits the fan.
Not taking things too seriously. I hate drama.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess it depends on the person. I try not to stand out. I am not
fond of the eyes of strangers.

I spend a lot of time thinking about

Life.... what makes life worth living and how to achieve those
On a typical Friday night I am

At home or at my kid's swim practice.
