Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am not a "trophy", I am a prize.
I like to think I have a good heart and generous nature. I'm
creative and love brainstorming new ideas. I am outspoken and very
often funny as hell. I like the outdoors but do not hunt or fish.
(Although I enjoy going out in a boat while someone else fishes) I
enjoy walking and the occasional bike ride. I love to read. I am a
talented shopper and love finding great deals.
The term liberal applies to me and I must say I am pretty tolerant
of everything but intolerance. I try to have compassion and put
myself in the other person's situation to see why they are the way
they are. It doesn't always work. I can't stand or understand mean
spiritedness. There is enough abundance for everyone and we need to
stop living in an I, me, mine mindset.
From the above, you might think me humorless. Not true, I love to
laugh and make jokes and enjoy word play. It is so easy to make me
laugh. I love live comedy that is clever but not mean. I love to
exchange ideas in conversation that opens my mind to new
But most of all I try to be kind.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
HUGE CHANGE IN MY LIFE!
After dedicating the last 7 years to very elderly parents, both
have passed away. I have no regrets about the time spent and know I
gave them a very good end of life.
New job, new adventures, maybe even a new love?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Nurturing, listening, taking care of people. I love to feed others
and entertain in my home. I am a problem solver. I understand
resources and how to find them. I write well and maintain a blog,
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I truly do not know. I hope it is my kindness, passion and energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am a voracious reader with many favorite authors. I enjoy Terry
Pratchett, Charlaine Harris, Janet Evanovich, Carl Hiaasan on the
popular side, but have many books from lesser known authors and a
large collection of humor from the earlier part of the 20th century
such as Robert Benchely and James Thurber. I like good writing and
especially enjoy well read books on cd.
Well acted thrillers, romantic comedies, comedy, plot driven films
with minimal explosions and not too much blood. I have seen a ton
of movies and know what I don't like almost more than being able to
articulate what I do like.
Music? Hmmm... Lyle Lovett, k.d. lang, Paul Simon, Los Lonely Boys,
Little Feat, so many more. Debussy, Ravel, and NO OPERA, except
Food with flavor! Asian, Mexican, Indian, Italian. Really good
breakfast, soup, and chocolate deserts. Fresh berries, fresh
anything. (Maybe we should discuss this over a meal.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My daughters, now grown and on their own.
Books! "Books will get you through times of no money better than
money will get you through times of no books."
Chocolate (although if it was a matter of life and death... I'd
choose life without chocolate)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I spend some time thinking about how nice it would be to share
closeness and touch and laughter with someone I adored. I spend
some time thinking that I would rather be alone than settle for
less than someone who loved and accepted me for who I am.
I also spend time planning how I will spend my retirement, if it
ever happens. I would like to use my time doing good in the world,
maybe teaching in Central America during the winter and raising
funds for clean water in Africa during the fall and spring. All
sorts of stuff goes through this head of mine.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, alone, but not lonely. I would like to be spending time
with a friend, out dancing or listening to music or a show. But I
would be just as happy playing cards or Boggle or watching a video.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am an open book. What you see is what you get. I don't know how
to play games. I will not be shy and open up later. Ask me a
question, if I think it is any of your business, I will answer.
Can't say fairer than that.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you like what you see, if you are real, if you can hold up your
end of a conversation, if you can support yourself and have an open
mind as to what you think of as your "type". I am different, and
different is good.
DO NOT CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE MARRIED OR LOOKING FOR A ONE NIGHT
STAND. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SAY IT ANY CLEARER.
