Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have been in Alaska 8 years now. And we (Alaska and me) have a
love/hate relationship. This is the most naturally beautiful place
I have ever lived and when I walk my dogs in the morning and look
to the mountains in the east, I am in awe. But during the long
winter months, I find myself wondering how quickly my house would
sell! I really enjoy my job and have some great friends. I also
enjoy doing many of the things this wonderful state has to offer.
Out of doors, I like to hike, walk on the trails, play with the
dogs, backpack (not in the rain), kayak, ski (downhill and
x-country – though I’m no expert at either), snowshoe, etc.
Indoors, I love yoga, cooking for friends, game night, reading and
doing homework (ok – I don’t really love the homework, but I do it
anyway). A good match for me would enjoy all that AND… a night out
on the town - good beer/wine, great food, theater, live music,
dancing, etc. I do hope to travel more in the future and would
really appreciate an easy-going travel partner.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Too much. I work full time and am going to school. Thank goodness I
don't have any young children at home - they would be so neglected.
I also try to find time to spend enjoying friends and a bit of
travel when I can work it in.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
making people feel comfortable and keeping calm in the face of
danger, well... maybe not danger but at least transition.
The first things people usually notice about me

My hair. I have some crazy curly hair. I shaved it a few years ago
as a fundraiser for childhood cancer research and now it has grown
in pretty darned gray. I missed it while it was gone - but what a
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy so many different things. Movies: documentaries,
alternative and foreign films typically top the list but I can
enjoy a well made action flick or a really stupid comedy as much as
the next girl. Shows: Alaska Dance Theater is a fav, also love
quality live theater (even bad live theater can be fun), I also
love to listen to live music when I get the opportunity. Music: I
enjoy a wide variety of music (except that new pop/country genre).
I love it when someone turns me on to something I enjoy that I've
not heard before. Food: Oh boy, I really enjoy good food - hence
the few extra pounds that are my nemesis. I will try most anything
and love to cook and visit new restaurants.
I just realized that shows might have meant television shows. I
haven't had a television in 5+ years and I prefer it that way.
Sometimes I will rent a season of something (house of cards,
Californication, Downton Abbey, True Blood, Six Feet Under) but
watching a screen is not my favorite.
Books: I read lots of novels, when taking a break from school work.
My son says I should read more non-fiction and the newspaper daily
but I love a good story. I appreciate stories that challenge me to
think about life, connection and relationships. I do read
non-fiction but it's not my go to.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmmmmm - this one might take a bit more thought.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to be better. Better at work, home, a better friend, in my yoga
practice and always in my head (where others can't see). It's
harder than it sounds.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
so happy - Friday is my favorite day of the week. It seems to
arrive with so much possibility. Nothing typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a pretty open person. I share quite a lot with people I know.
I'm not sure that I'm willing to admit too many more private things
on this very public page.

situations, from casual to more serious.
