I am a 54 year old woman, looking for a man with whom I can share laughter, great food, movies, travel, and my passion for dogs and nature. Honesty and strong communication skills are important to me, as are kindness, intelligence and a sense of adventure. I would love to share many interests with my life partner but I also believe that differences are what keeps a relationship vibrant and interesting.
I can laugh at myself and I hope you can too! I am intuitive, nurturing, and admire patience (working on developing this quality in myself).
I have a dark (Harold and Maude) sense of humor. The kind of humor that makes me laugh when I am supposed to be serious.
I love horses and dogs; remodeling/decorating; plays; intriguing conversations at Starbucks with good friends; swimming, boating, floating; walking in the woods; dancing; and reading fiction and the New Yorker.
What I’m doing with my life
I’m really good at
making really great homemade desserts, finding lost items, matching
people with the perfect job, contractor, or therapist,
teaching/training, helping people feel better when they are upset,
remodeling houses, choosing paint colors to compliment a house or
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm talkative, empathetic, adventurous, and keep myself in pretty
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Indy films and documentaries (The Life and Times of Harvey
Milk is a favorite); folk and rock music by women with deep voices
(Joan Armatrading, Brandi Carlyle, and Grace Slick); Cat Stevens

I especially like Thai, Korean, Mexican, and Ethiopian food--but
anything home-cooked that is fresh and healthy and has subtle
flavors is wonderful.
And let's not forget guacamole!!
The six things I could never do without
Good food, reading material, my friends, my dog, movies, tooth
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next meal, my house (color, design, my next project), my dog, my
fruit trees, and how to help the kids I provide therapy for.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing after a stressful work week--I may stay home and watch The
Shark Tank while cuddling with my dog, or I might catch an Indy
film or documentary at the Lyric theater downtown.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ask me when we talk and I'll tell you (almost) anything you want to
You should message me if
You are intelligent, honest, love dogs, have a dark, dry or
sarcastic sense of humor and/or have the ability to create a
humorous anecdote out of an everyday experience.
I am attracted to men who are politically liberal, have a great
sense of humor, know how to enjoy life, and who love to laugh.
