Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm single after being married a long time. Two grown kids and a
step-daughter. I'm doing what I always wanted to do -- back in
school as a full-time theatre arts student. FUN! I've thought I'm
looking for friends but who knows what the universe has in store. I
believe in love again, and recently I've been thinking that what I
want more than anything is to be completely swept off my feet. I
want to go mad and be crazy in love. Being this romantic is
probably silly, and I would have a coffee and laugh and think that
was romantic, but ... don't we all want this at some point? Maybe
it's the moon now. That lovely sliver ... (I hate to add a
disclaimer, but if you are not local -- LA based, then I'm not
interested in correspondence. No time. If you are under my lowest
age then I'm also not interested. Just a note--so if you were that
20 year old from Portugal with a string of articulate compliments
in English, thanks but no thanks. It's a dating site, not a fantasy
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I taught English to foreign adults for over 35 years, then spent
three years studying Mythology and Depth Psychology (think Jung and
Joseph Campbell) in a doctoral program which will hopefully include
a one-woman show as a production part of the thesis. Since I'm also
a song-writer and poet, the fact that I needed to defer student
loans while on leave from my program led me to return to acting and
singing which I hadn't done in years. It's going well, but I'm
super busy, so almost no time to date. But there has to be time for
passion, or the poetry SUFFERS! SPECIAL NOTE! Looking for some
trouble. Wrapped 8 shows of Sweeney Todd (did it in a wheelchair
since I recently broke my left foot ... just don't tell me to BREAK
a LEG!) I'm fully healed although the foot is still rather swollen!
So walking by the beach might eventually happen! I only date men
with cars now (and preferably with disabled access instead of five
story walk ups!) Haha. Update. Just did four performances of an
opera--Dido and Aeneas as part of the chorus, at SMC. About to do a
concert with Guitar class, but then the school year is over and
summer will be here!
