Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an outgoing, creative person with a love for learning new
things. I love animals--I'm paring down at the moment but last
month I had a dog, a cat, five angora rabbits, five chickens, a
ferret, and a duck; I enjoy cooking, playing video games, and being
outside. It's been awhile since I've been camping or horseback
riding but I love to do both, and I hope to find someone who can
respect and appreciate the person I am. I have two kids. I've never
minded getting dirty, I'm merely an okay swimmer, and I'm currently
going through a divorce, as well. I'm equally at home at a black
tie event, out on the farm, or curled up on the couch in my
pajamas. I really like who I am. I'm confident in myself, I know
what I want. I know what I don't want.
I'm a nurturer, an extrovert, and an organizer.
I'm a bit of a hippie.
I’m looking for the same things I offer: respect, loyalty,
generosity, honesty, love, romance, and true partnership; for
someone who doesn’t mind eventually being a ready-made dad and
knows how to communicate well.
I am not a novelty. This is who I am and this isn't changing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm having tons of fun with my kids and critters every
day, and am part of a new podcast starting up called Geeks Gone
Mom. I'm also learning how to play the ukulele and am super active
with Cream City Hens, a community movement that recently legalized
backyard henkeeping in Milwaukee. I'm still a Girl Scout, read a
lot, knit, sew, and bake. I make killer homemade bread, yogurt, pad
thai and butter. When I've got the time and extra funds I show my
Cardigan in conformation. I'm working on my plan for homesteading
in my yard next year, and want to include dye plants and medicinal
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I consider myself to be a creative person, and there are a lot of
things that pique my curiosity, resulting in constant learning.
Every day I look at something new, learn something new, and grow
into a new person.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Wow, your hair is really long!"
"Holy cow, those are weird shoes!" (If my hair is up in a hat)
(Some children actually get down on the floor next to my feet and
poke my toes.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh man. Okay, I love Harry Potter (though I actually refused to
read it at first because of all of the hype), the Song of Ice and
Fire series by George R R Martin, the Outlander series, Jane Austen
novels, the Kate Daniels series, Hitchhiker's Guide, Neil Gaiman,
Terry Pratchett, Doctor Who, Firefly, Sharpe's Rifles, Star Wars,
Queen, Amanda Palmer, The Beatles, Nickel Creek, JT Spangler,
Supertramp, and barbeque sauce (give me chicken wings and a beer
(preferably a Lakefront Brewery Eastside Dark) and life is
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- A book
- Vibram Five Fingers with skirts
- A dog
- The wind
- Sweet things (possibly sweet nothings, as well)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Possibilities. I am such a dreamer. I'm an eternal optimist. I am
filled with hope almost constantly.
This can get me into trouble--I can easily make grand plans I then
commit to and then something crazy will happen like a kid gets sick
and I'm stuck. Or run out of gas.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a geographic tongue.
(In looking this up, I've found that this definition appears to be
some sort of disorder or something. It's not. My tongue just
doesn't look uniform. This goofy and unique appearance does not
affect kissing skills. I really do love to kiss.)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You may want kids (I have a nine year old and a seven year old),
love critters, don't mind cooking half of the time, have something
to talk about, can deal with goofy shoes, have an interest in
sustainability, and know how to sing. (...okay, so that last one
isn't a requirement. :oP) Extra points if you're a Whovian, know
what a Whovian is, know how to dremel a dog's nails, like to mop
floors, or can't decide if you'd rather be a Jedi or a
Shoot me a message if you're looking for a new friend, too. I love
expanding my horizons.
I do have a non-traditional view on relationships. While falling so
deeply in love that I can't tell where I end and the other person
begins will happen to me someday, I'm a bit of a polyamorist right
now. It fits my life best.
