Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Why you might want to get to know me better . . .
I am outgoing and enjoy spending time with friends (dinner out, BBQ
at home, going to the movies, dancing, listening to live music,
watching a play). I also appreciate the solitude of working in the
yard or reading a good book. I have a good sense of humor and am
not afraid to laugh at myself. My friends often say that I go above
and beyond, but I take the opportunity to bake cookies or paint a
living room because I like doing things for my friends.
I don’t do drama in relationships nor play games. It breaks my
heart to read profiles where guys have to mention they don’t want
this from potential dates. Fortunately, neither has a place in my
relationships. I am honest and sincere. What you see is what you
get. I have nothing to hide and hope you don’t either.
What I'm looking for in a partner . . . a man who has a good sense
of humor balanced with a serious side. Someone who doesn't care
what we're doing as long as we're together and enjoying ourselves.
A man who respects and supports me for who I am, knowing that I
will do the same in return. Good communication is also important.
I’d also like to have the door opened for me once-in-a-while but do
NOT expect to be waited on hand and foot. Being a hopeless
romantic, a partner that is comfortable expressing his affectionate
side is a must. And besides, what woman doesn’t want to be swept
off her feet now and then?!
These are just the basics. I believe the rest comes when we meet
the right person. Chemistry and how we fit with one another has a
tremendous amount to do with a good match. I'm looking for a man
that compliments me and is my best friend. I want my heart to skip
a beat every time I see him. I believe in love at first sight, but
am realistic that relationships don't often start off this way. So,
let's start with something casual, learn what we have in common and
go from there. If there’s an immediate connection, that’s a bonus!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I love my job and the people I work with. I'm in the midst of
reimagining my job description as the organization goes through a
major transition. (No this isn't code for "I might be let go.")
Fortunately, my position is secure, especially since I'm integral
to the changes taking place.
While I am happy with where I am in my career, it isn't my entire
life. It is important to me to give back to my community by helping
with volunteer projects and serving on local organization boards.
I’m really good at

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Steve Berry's books are great! Historical fiction with the
adventure/suspense angle is great. I think David Sedaris is a
hysterical writer and perfectly portrays his dysfuntional family
I'm up for any funny or romantic movie but also enjoy action
flicks, documentaries, dramas and others. If you haven't seen
Paranorman - I recommend it. So what if it's animated? It's funny
and has a great no-bullying message.
TV shows I watch regularly tend to be dramas - Rookie Blue, Bones,
Parenthood, NCIS - Los Angeles, Private Practice. Also like
comedies - Big Bang Theory, The Daily Show. Fortunately, my life
would not cease to a halt if tv was no longer available.
My musical tastes are broad - Jack Johnson, Rascal Flats, Josh
Groban, Maroon 5 are favorites. Love 80s, 90s and other Top 40
music as well as country. I enjoy listening to live music -
classical, big band, folk and Broadway to name just a few.
I enjoy good, quality food. Things like Northwest cuisine, small,
locally owned bistro restaurants. Really though, I like a variety
of foods - Mexican, Italian, BBQ, Mediterranean to name a few. I
enjoy cooking, especially when there's someone to cook for.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) Friends - my life would not be the same without them!
2) A job that I enjoy and that keeps me fulfilled and
3) My cat who is half human, half dog. She's my constant
4) My family.
5) A welcoming spiritual community that becomes family and
continually learns and explores together.
6) Unconditional love.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going to dinner with a couple friends, maybe a movie or playing
board games over pizza and beer at home. During the summer, I love
having people over to BBQ. A picnic dinner with a bottle of wine
listening to a concert in the park. Really, I'm just as comfortable
hanging around home as I am getting dressed up to go out.

Look forward to hearing from you!
