Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is like those lame self-evaluations you have to fill out at
work. I'm 42, divorced for a long time & have 2 kids (age 11
& 17). Honestly, I'm ready to meet someone who wants a

My favorite TV shows are dorky shows, most of them are old, and I
am totally devoted to them - Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer,
Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow, Firefly, etc. Also have a deep and
abiding love for The Sopranos. Music - I like everything from Rufus
Wainwright to AC/DC. Lately I've gotten really into George Ezra,
Frank Turner and Steve Grand. And I'm revisiting my early 90s Tori

favorite movies are pretty old - Friday, Princess Bride, O Brother
