Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a single mom of two. I work in higher ed administration as
well as teach sociology and business classes at the college level,
and I love my work! I just started a doctoral program in
Psychology. My kids, work, and school keep me very busy, but I'm
still missing someone in my life. I am excited about making new
friends and learning new things.
I love to read and do geeky things like visit museums and and hang
out in bookstores. But I'm not JUST a geek. I like to be outdoors,
I bake a lot, and I find happiness in simple things. I love
concerts. I tend to be a very happy person in general. I am very
socially liberal, and I pretty much always root for the underdog.
Wow - lots of talk about me! I can't wait til we get to the part
where we talk about you!
Just to be fair, you should know that my schedule is very hectic.
You should also know that I am not small (jeans size 20) and that I
expect that we will both be working toward being friends before we
assume anything else.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot - mostly popular fiction. It provides a break from
real life, and that has a lot of appeal for me.
As far as television goes - I am quite the NCIS junkie, watching
reruns all the time. Beyond that, I watch the food network
sometimes when I can't sleep at night.
Movies? Hmm. This is where things get murky. I'll tell you a few of
my favorites and maybe you'll be able to make sense of them: Gone
in 60 Seconds, You've Got Mail, The Hangover, all of the Die Hards
and Mission Impossibles, the Bourne series . . . I guess what I can
say with certainty is that I don't like horror movies or gratuitous
violence. I'm also not a big fan of mobster-type movies. I do
typically like romantic comedies.
And music. I'm kind of all over the place there too. My favorite
artists and bands are Phillip Phillips, John Mayer, Mat Kearney,
Matt Nathanson, Genesis, Cake, The Beach Boys, Billy Joel, Jimmy
Buffett, the Cranberries, the Cure, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum,
some old Chicago, Midnight Oil, U2, and a bunch more that have no
more in common than the ones I've listed here. Music is important
to me. It adds to my happiness.
