Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am redheaded--in description and in attitude. Not all the myths
are true, but they exist for a reason.
I am particularly independent. I believe there is a place between
"meaningless sex" and "committed relationship" that can work if
both parties are honest about it. I am open to the possibility of a
committed relationship, but I am a complete person without being in
I get frustrated that so many women say one thing when they mean
something totally different. I tend to get painted with the same
brush. I know myself well. I pay attention to what I am feeling,
and I am honest with myself and those around me.
I like to laugh. I'm not afraid of embarrassing myself. I need live
music as much as I need fresh water. I like a spirited discussion
with someone who makes me think.
I love to travel, and I have not been able to do enough of it
lately. Favorite adventures include riding the bobsled in Lake
Placid and seeing the Grand Canyon from the back of a mule.
Reading is a favorite relaxation for me--and I read almost
exclusively fiction. Give me a good serial killer and an
interesting detective to track him down and I am happy. I do
require well-crafted characters and a descriptive and believable
Music is what feeds me--but probably nobody you have ever heard of
before. I love live music--the more intimate the setting the
better. Folk, singer/songwriter, Americana...there are many names
for the style of music that moves me.
For some reason, it matters that you answer the "most private"
question. There has to be something silly or self deprecating that
you can say, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living, laughing, listening. Working as a nurse to pay my way.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Crossword puzzles, critical thinking, analyzing the hell out of far
too many details, adopting animals that need a home, being generous
to friends and family.

Yes, I can count. I'm not always good at following directions.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The next live music I will be seeing
How I can have so many tumbleweeds to vacuum yet not have bald
How I can add another state to my list of "have traveled to"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying a movie in with family, friends. Recovering from a busy
week at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't set out to shock, offend, or appall others, but it doesn't
bother me when I do...I actually smile on the inside.
Bonus--my first concert was Shaun Cassidy--my mother bought the
tickets. I believe that I made up for this by seeing Elton John
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to experience new things, but can also enjoy a quiet
evening...or a quiet weekend. I'm strict about some things,
forgiving about others. I would love to make some new friends and
create new memories...anything beyond that would be a bonus.
Please don't send me a message that just says, "Hey sexy," or "Nice
hair." While I will appreciate the compliment, I won't respond
because I don't know what to say besides, "Thanks." I realize that
some folks might think that's too demanding. I understand, but
would say that it just makes us not a match.
