My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm looking for a needle in a haystack. A good communicator who wants to know as much about me as I do him. Someone who asks questions but also listens well.

You want to talk music? I'm your girl- rock & roll girl through and through. I am going to see the remaining members of the Grateful Dead with Trey Anastasio From Phish over 4th of July weekend. How incredibly lucky I was to have scored tickets- cannot wait!

Here's a little bit about me, even though it feels weird talking about myself (I'd rather hear about you)

I've lived in Atlanta since the end of 1997, (with a 5 year break in Boston). I have been back in Atlanta since October of 2011. Where all have you lived? Me?
Rochester NY, Tupelo MS, South Bend IN,
Chicago IL, Boston,
Atlanta
That's a lot, I know! Atlanta is home though.

I'm a person who sees the glass half-full, I'm very young at heart, and I find joy in helping others. Keeping a positive attitude is essential to my daily living.

I am the youngest of 4 siblings, and am very close to my family. My parents have been married 51 years- I hope to find someone to have that kind of long lasting relationship with.

My true passion is music, I'm a rock & roll girl through and through. I can play drums, guitar and sing- not necessarily fantastic at all, but I try. It's a lot of fun. I need to do it more than I have been lately. I love to travel to see my favorite bands- you get to see great music and get to be adventurous at the same time.

Wine is another passion. I plan to take many wine classes this year- someday would love to become a sommelier!

Running- love it - did my first 1/2 marathon in November 2013 in Ft Benning, but it can be a love/hate relationship at times. I'm not a "natural" runner and have to work very hard at it. But - very rewarding!

Now- I want to hear about you. I'm looking for a good man who loves to laugh, has a good head on his shoulders & has good values. But, at the same time- knows how to have a good time.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in Human Resources, and have been in the same field for almost 20 years- I love what I do, but it doesn't define me. Still actively working on what I'm passionate about- music, wine, and travel. Working on resurrecting my blog- as I love to write.

Note: I have a good job and good head on my shoulders. I'm looking for a guy who is the same way. I prefer to date guys relatively within my age group (no 20-somethings) and within my own race. It's just what I prefer and am most attracted to. Thanks for respecting that!

My Favorite Blanket
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What live shows are coming up, music, music, music, getting my music blog up and running on its own domain- and how I'm going to sell my homemade salsa out of my house.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It depends. I'm either hanging out at home relaxing (especially if my work week was nuts), out with friends for dinner & drinks- or, at a rock show!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not really private, but it's something my work friends don't know about me-ha! I was at the final Grateful Dead show, which was really sad. Jerry died exactly a month later- he is so missed! "Let there be songs- to fill the air..."

The rest is private for a reason! Takes time to peel the layers- get to know me and you'll learn the private stuff.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Message me if you are looking for your other half and want a relationship.

I'm looking for a man who loves music as much as me, who loves to travel- and was raised with good values!! Make me laugh :)

You should NOT message me if:

- You are not over your ex-girlfriend or ex-wife. I'm only saying that because I see it a lot (I'm not saying it's you.) I prefer not to be a band-aid to help solve other people's baggage or problems :) I am very serious about finding the right partner!

- If you're in your 20's looking for a cougar

- if you've lied about your age, marital status, etc...believe me, it happens.

Guys, fill your profile details out! :) I want to know about you!

I am seriously looking for my other half. If you are too, message me, let's see where this goes! Cheers!
