Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am on this site to find that special woman that makes my pulse
race when I hear her voice. And, I would love to be the one to do
that for her. I am an open-minded person, not judgmental, the kind
of person you can count on, dependable, true to my word and a loyal
friend (just like a golden retriever without the shedding :-). I am
financially and emotionally secure, creative, intelligent and
confident but not arrogant. I tend to be energetic, "young at
heart", appreciating and enjoying life's simple pleasures. I am
fortunate to have excellent relationships with my children (taking
them to New Orleans in Oct) and fun friends. I am told I have a
great sense of humor and I enjoy comedy clubs or poetry open mics
to supplement every day’s humorous events. I am a foodie with a
large kitchen (good for entertaining), but I eat out way too much
(an improvement area). I prefer to eat healthy foods bought at
DuPont Circles farmers market or Whole Foods (also known as Whole
Paycheck) and cook at home instead of my current lifestyle of
Restaurant week every night. My favorite wines are Brunello’s and
Pinot Noir’s or Whites from the Willamette Valley. I make one of
the city’s best pizzas and lattes (My house cleaner will testify).
I work out regularly and bike ride through the city for errands and
pleasure. I attribute my energy to being a pescetarian since 1999,
working out, having a positive attitude about people and life. I
make new friends easily and keep old friends for life. Although it
sounds old school, I still believe in chivalrous behavior (I think
I watched too many movies as a child). The most rewarding thing I
do is volunteering at Miriam’s Kitchen. I am very passionate about
playing live music, listening to live music for dancing and doing
the right thing. I would rather participate in life than watching
it from a couch.
I am looking for:
Someone who has strong family values and appreciates a romantic
man. A partner in life who is open, honest, and affectionate, that
loves to laugh and does not believe in going to bed angry. Someone
to hug and snuggle with in front of a fire sipping a spectacular
wine, (or champagne) and sharing conversation into the night. I am
a one woman man looking to spend the rest of my life with someone
developing a healthy relationship built on fun, humor, trust,
communication, intimacy, and friendship.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

Making people laugh. Playing Blues, funk and country music, hosting
dinner parties, and discovering new restaurants that fit the

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
work, self improvement, finding a new restaurant to eat in, how to
redesign my place.
I am trying to live in the moment more, so that requires spending
time thinking about what I am currently doing and not answering
every text and phone call right away. I am spontaneous and can
think of fun things to do in the moment.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing a variety of things, such as: seeing live music, dancing,
hanging with friends, dinner, wizards games. etc.... Sometimes just
staying in on a Friday night and reading or oil painting to music.
