Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an easy going, happy person who loves life and people of all
types. I love to laugh! I love the outdoors, but not the cold, so
have spent a lot of time traveling and taking up seasonal work.
Have recently lived in St. Thomas on the beach, the Outer Banks on
the sound, and down in Galesville, WI on the river.
I have two grown AWESOME, free spirited sons, who I love to spend
time with. We laugh a lot.
I just took a look at my personality category and 2nd on the list
is more "sloppy." I don't understand where that came from! I am not
a slob, promise! Also... "more arrogant?" I have never been called
arrogant, FAR from it. Getting older, I think we are more
self-confident, but to me, arrogance implies that you think more
highly of yourself than others. I am a person who sees the good in
people first. I will take it as a compliment, I guess....
I will get this out of the way......I am still a smoker, although I
feel terribly guilty about it, and am seriously working on
quitting, so if that's a deal breaker, then please don't message
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Am in real estate appraisal, work from home, and only recently back
to Minnesota, so not much of a social life yet. Exploring many
interests, and realizing that I have too many interests, and life
is just REALLY good.
Reading, reading, reading. Can't get enough information!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking just about anything, want to write. Probably making people
feel safe and comfortable, as they tend to tell me their inner-most
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Beach Music by Pat Conroy is by far my favorite book, and I just
may read it again, which I have never done. Sci-Fi, a lot of
non-fiction. Dr. Seuss!!!
Movies... there are too many. All time since childhood is Mary
Poppins. Coppola, Kubrick, Scorsese, Spielberg, Woody Allen, will
check out anything with Liam Neeson, and love many children's
Breaking Bad is the best television series I have ever seen. (but
don't watch many) Never thought I'd like a show about meth dealers,
but it's just so clever!
Food.... Thai, sushi, veggies, Indian, ceviche...anything fish, raw
oysters. My dream job would be a traveling food critic. The only
food I don't like is oatmeal, but I force myself to eat it.
Music... everything but rap, except that I took my son to M.C.
Hammer many years ago and had a blast. Years later I was
manipulated in to taking him to Nine Inch Nails, and it wasn't as
awful as I thought it would be.....Folk and Bluegrass are big on my
list. ZZ Top and Prince were my favorite concerts for the
entertainment factor. Mary Chapin Carpenter has some beautiful
ballads. Emmy Lou Harris is just plain cool to me. I love the
harmony and the righteous rebellion of the Indigo Girls. Dolly
Parton chooses awesome artists to perform with. I grew up with Hank
Sr. and Johnny Cash, and later Merle Haggard. Oh and all songs from
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, friends, outdoors, water (river, creek, sea), computer,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My boys, I want grandchildren, traveling, what I am going to cook
next, which interest should I explore today, how awesome life is.
How can I help? Why am I hooked on the Breaking Bad series.
Everything, I think too much!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Since I moved in to this apartment, and back to MN, I am usually at
the pool or hanging with the neighbors.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Some of my friends call me Dharma. If you understand that this

message me, please do!
The longer I am on this site, the more I put in my profile, as to
"narrow" the field. Does that sound egotistical? You must be real!
