Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is where I tell you about how amazing and awesome I am, or if
I'm more direct than that, shoot you straight with a bit of candor
about my life and where I'm at.
I'm a young 50-something who's looking to date after coming to
terms with a divorce. On a positive note, there's no real baggage.
I have a wonderful child, great friends, and a job I love. I've
dated a bit here and there, and what I'm most looking for is a
healthy, long term relationship. Something where we both feel
fulfilled, look forward to seeing each other, and make each other
better for having been around one another. Is that setting the bar
If there's one thing people say about me, it's that I'm easy to get
along with. I'm looking to get out there and meet new people, to
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 a doing social work with a local hospital, helping to
raise money for various health related charitable causes, and
trying to see more concerts and get more into wine tasting. To be
honest, work takes up quite a bit of my life, but I'd love someone
to share those off hours with having fun. Also, I'm training to run
a half-marathon right now!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Well, I'd like to think I'm a good mother, for one, and I'm great
with people. I have a knack for remembering faces and names and, at
heart, I'm a pretty social person. Those who know me would probably
agree that I have a big heart, I'm a good listener, and I make
people comfortable around me. I'd say more, but it sounds
conceited, this question is begging me to saying something about
how "I'm really good at" modesty and humility.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile. I like having a good time, I try to make the most and
best of each day.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Wow, this could be a long list.
Books: I love to read, so hard to go wrong here. Most of what I
read is whatever I'm recommended. In the past I was pretty deep
into the Oprah's Book Club scene (you may laugh, but a lot of those
were really good books!). More recently I've read Empire Falls by
Richard Russo, which I liked. Having read a Pulitzer Prize winning
novel totally offsets my Oprah books... right?
Movies: Well, I love romantic comedies, or just comedies more
generally. Four Weddings and a Funeral, Sleepless in Seattle, Love
Actually, etc. There's a theme here... no, it's not Hugh Grant,
he's not in Sleepless :).
Shows: Well, I've seen a few shows in SF, and I liked Lion King and
Phantom. I'd actually love to see more. I missed Wicked when it was
Music: I like Jackson Brown, Josh Groban, Earth Wind and Fire,
Gypsy Kings. Actually I have music on all work day. I think EWF
with Chicago was a favorite.
Food: I'm pretty advertuous with food, but my current passion is
Indian food. A good friend has shared some of her recipes and one
of these days I'm going to master curry. That day might not come,
you know, tomorrow, but one of these days...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, having a fulfilling job helping people, the outdoors
(especially Yosemite!), loving friends, being creative (e.g.
knitting, decorating), and good books.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
When the next time I get to Yosemite might be and what the next
service project will be. Currently soliciting the idea of sending a
Christmas card to a recovering American Soldier, Walter Reed
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends and if not, resting up for the weekend. On that
note, a guy who dances (or is willing to learn?) would be great!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty hard to offend and very low drama. Life's too short and
should be enjoyed.
Also, I just bought my first new car, so that's fun.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're around my age, interested in the outdoors, love having
fun, or if anything here strikes your eye!
It'd be preferrable if you had a job/education/volunteer thing
going on in your life, were financially stable (as in, you can pay
your bills, not that your income is roughly the GDP of a small
country), and didn't smoke pot on an hourly basis. On the latter,
I'm not totally against pot, it's just that the last two guys I've
dated got high like they were Snoop Dogg. Point of fact, neither of
them actually *was* Snoop Dogg.
I'm also a fan of a guy who feels at least somewhat comfortable
communicating, sharing their feelings, that kind of thing. Yes,
this is stereotypical, but I did write something about Oprah Books,
Giants baseball and 49er fans are welcome to reply.
