I do IT work in healthcare, keeps me busy and it's still challenging but I don't consider my employment that important to who I am honestly. I took a very circuitous path to get here (I've had more jobs than most everyone else I know, combined) and I think of myself as a mother, gardener, reader way over IT Professional. It's what I do but it isn't who I am.
I like quirky movies (think Wes Anderson), reading (Sedaris, Roth, Chabon, Marquez and on and on) and gardening. I love friendly dinners and prefer intimate over stadium seating, scrabble over monopoly, Words with Friends over Scrabble and bbq / rustic over expensive restaurants, wine and beer over hard liquor (though i do love a good cocktail) and I really appreciate a wicked sense of humor.
I'd like to meet someone similarly happy, who likes to gab, hang out and hang in, someone who likes hiking, campfires, movies, and someone looking for more than sex. I don't have a specific type other than a man who probably has a lot of laugh lines, on the tall side so I can wear heels once in a while :). You don't have to be insanely liberal, but it helps. I can't date smokers, and if you aren't into taking care of yourself in a regular way we may not be a great fit.
Initially I thought emailing back and forth for a bit was a good idea but experience has shown me that nothing beats that intangible "zing" that happens when you meet someone in person and it's right, that rush you feel when you anticipate the first kiss. Thanks for reading :-)
