My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi there – I'm Helen :-) I'm active and outgoing, but I also have a quieter, more intellectual side once you get to know me.

I enjoy meeting people and can get along with just about anyone, but romantically, I tend to favor men who are on the quieter side. I guess you could say I'm an introspective extrovert, who's looking for an extrospectve introvert to complement me.

I love to hike, bike, and be adventurous in the outdoors. Just started rock climbing again after about a 20 year hiatus, and I'm loving it!

Haven't been in a serious relationship in a while, and I'd be totally open to falling in love again, but I'm in no hurry and mostly just want to meet some new people and enjoy dating/new friendships.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a personal trainer who specializes in corrective exercise - I love my job and enjoy working out, but I also have a word-geek/couch-potato/crossword puzzler side who loves to listen to NPR and learn new things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Conversation - I can talk to anyone about just about anything, and I truly enjoy getting to know new people and putting them at ease.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Typically, my smile, and that I like to talk :-) I can sometimes be overly talkative when I first meet people, but much more mellow once you get to know me. It's kind of a reverse shyness, the more comfortable I am with someone, the less I talk.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read, and I go from trashy romances to classics, to murder mysteries. Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Joyce, Woolf, DH Lawrence...more contemporary: Tim O'Brien, Tom Robbins, Margaret Atwood, Elmore Leonard, Dennis Lahane.

Love old movies and romantic comedies! (Anything with Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn!) A few favorites are: Some Like it Hot, The Philidelphia Story, Singin' in the Rain, The Sure Thing...

Very eclectic taste in music - my iPod contains everything from Stevie Ray Vaughan to the Partridge Family.

NPR: Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me! Radio Lab, On Point, Science Friday
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dark Beer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything! I am interested in all sorts of things and I like anyone/anything who challenges my mind.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working with a group of special needs clients. When I do go out on a Friday, you can find me drinking the house dark and singing (loudly and off-key) at Jacob Wirth's with my favorite piano man, Mel.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm ambivalent about the Oxford comma.

Also, I lied about my age to OK Cupid. I was actually born in '62. Lied so I'd show up in more searches, and because I typically date guys who are my age or younger.

The last time I did the online thing, it seemed like the only people looking for a woman in my age range were 65+ I'm sure there are lots of great 65+ guys out there, but I have zero interest in dating anyone more than a year or two older.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you want to hear from me - I probably won't initiate.

If you think we might hit it off, either as friends or something more, please drop me a line and start a conversation - hint: that means saying something beyond "hi"; bonus points if it sounds like you've actually read my profile :-)

Friend matches are probably outgoing like I am; romantic matches are more likely to be somewhat introverted - the "shy 'til you get to know me" type.

Active is good, but please don't tell me about your most recent workout - I get enough of that at work I am actually a sucker for math/science geeks – so if you really want me to respond, talk nerdy to me. :-)

Also, I am very serious about my age range - I meet plenty of twenty-somethings at work and climbing, and I have no interest in dating anyone over 55.
