Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Do men really bother reading women's profiles? But in case they do,
here goes - I'll try & keep it to a minimum:
I'm English born & raised - Liverpool. Just to hit the high
points - left Liverpool at 21, got a job in Frankfurt, Germany for
a few years. Married, moved to Indiana, Arizona, Florida, Texas,
then Maryland, and here I've been since.
I've learned to be fairly strong and independent. I always keep an
open mind about people and look for what they're about on a deeper
level. I really don't have a whole long "grocery list" of things
that a man should have - I'm very open minded and one can be
utterly surprised by the people you become attracted to when you
least expect it. I've been artsy all my life and my work has
afforded me the opportunity to work on some famous faces which has
For me, a man doesn't have to be a George Clooney, or Superman
leaping tall buildings - most important is that he has good core
values, sharp intellect, and a good sense of humor is a must.
Especially that he doesn't take himself too seriously. I do like a
man that's a bit "edgy" - for those of you that are, you'll know
what I'm talking about. I find intelligence and great sense of
humor to outweigh other facets of the person that may not be quite
I will add, hopefully without sounding superficial - I like a man
to look and act younger than his age. I get told constantly that I
don't look or act my age, so therefore it's important that the man
be similar. If you're say 50, and look 65 or older, and/or tend to
have a negative "old/staid" attitude that is influenced by negative
world events and watching Fox 5 or CNN all day, then it's fair to
say I would definitely not be interested.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly work!! Aren't we all? Seems like there's less and less time
to just fit in having fun. But aside from work, I enjoy staying
fit, and generally eating healthy. I have a healthful approach to
my lifestyle, so would appreciate that in someone else, but it's
not a dealbreaker if they're more relaxed in their approach than I
am. Also enjoy spending time with my dear friends. I belong to the
DC Mini Metro group & enjoy going on the outings they have -
anything Mini-related is usually good fun. Enjoy most any fun
pursuit except bunji jumping :-( - so am always open to
suggestions. Like all the typicalmuseum/shows/fares/movies/outings
in general things to do. Would enjoy learning about how cars "work"
and try fixing things myself whenever/wherever possible. However,
this is not exactly on my "to do" list - haha!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to other people. Compassion for older, infirm folks. I
always enjoy looking for the good in the person and making people
feel better about themselves. Creative pursuits/good with my hands,
i.e. tiling my own bathroom floor, and home projects inside and
out. Have been told I have a good mind, and very intuitive. Also, a
good conversationalist (aren't most women?!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Gosh, the list could go on and on - but some things that come to
mind on series: Penny Dreadful; Masters of Sex both on SHOWTIME;
and HBO's True Detective (Season 1 not 2) - GREAT series. Movies:
The Enigma Machine, Once Upon A Time in America (Robert DeNiro),
old movie now, but boy, that was great. Books: lots of them - Ken
Follett, Pillars of the Earth, World Without End - enjoy David
Baldacci, or any mystery/thriller type stories and authors. Like
all kinds of music from rock to classical/opera. Food: mostly
non-meat. Unfortunately I LOVE sweets, but avoid them most of the
time to keep my weight in check.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My good health and strength, my good sense of logic/common sense,
sense of humor, sharp intuition about people and situations,
balanced approach to life, and last but not least my family and
dear friends. (oops - more than 6).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my work, exercise, health, food, and what's around the corner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I over-think things a lot of the time. :-(

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think you're someone like I've described above and you're
looking for something meaningful. Also, that you're not just
looking for quick sex (as in the first date), and then onto the
next one. Pics are recent. The main one with my Mini was taken
August of 2013 - that's the oldest. Please have recent pics of
yourself - as in the past year or so. Thanks
