Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The kids have always come first in my life, and now they're grown
and busy with their own lives. Now it's time for me! I'm looking
forward to reclaiming my time, meeting new people, visiting new
places, and trying new things. I tend to be very shy and quiet,
with an independent streak. My life is pretty happy just like it is
- but it would be wonderful to have someone to share that happiness
I enjoy movies, music, good conversation, reading, good food
(cooking in or dining out), video and internet (yep! there's a
little geek in me!), and spending time with friends and loved ones
no matter what we're doing. I love cooking and it would be fun to
find someone to share that with.
I'm looking for someone outgoing, patient, fun-loving, who's
looking for someone to share both quiet times and new adventures.
Heading out to dinner, a movie, or a concert is definitely not much
fun alone! Sunsets and thunderstorms lack brilliance unless they're
shared. Care to join me?
I love conversation, but don't need it constantly happening -
silence can be just as stimulating. I have strong opinions, and
don't mind sharing them - but I'm open-minded and tolerant as well.
I don't want to be someone's world - I just want to have a place in
it, and I'm looking for a partner who feels the same. I firmly
believe that if you have no life apart from each other then you
have nothing new to continue bringing to feed the relationship.
Trust, support, reliance, and honesty - all are necessary to keep a
relationship alive. Equally important are surprises, spontaneity,
adventure, and challenge.
I am shy, independent, and curious. I'm also an introvert - which
can be challenging for those on the extrovert side of the spectrum.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting over and learning to be myself again......exploring new
curiosities.....trying to be the best mom I can be as our roles
I've also recommitted myself to giving back to my community. I work
in the human services field - a great job with great people, doing
great work! I serve on the boards of several area non-profits,
giving me a chance to give back in time and talent.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Trying to see more than one side of a situation; seeing the big
picture while dealing with the details; cooking; helping people
find solutions to problems big and small; listening when someone
just needs an ear; supporting those around me; working behind the
scenes to get things done (I'm not a spotlight person at all!);
networking...... Certainly NOT writing these profiles :D
The first things people usually notice about me

My dark eyes and my silver hair
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read - history, historical fiction, science fiction,
explorations of religion and spirituality, diaries, biographies,
fiction, mysteries..... even the occasional cookie-cutter
I enjoy movies but rarely get out to see them - not a big fan of
action adventure, but I'll gladly sit through one if the company is
good. We have Netflix, and the kids always have some movie or
another playing and I'll get sucked in occasionally.
I love all kinds of food and can be fairly adventurous.... not too
hot and spicy though. Favorites are steak, seafood, Chinese and
other ethnic food. I actually tried haggis a bit ago - not
something I'd choose to eat again, but I can at least say I tried
I love lots of different kinds of music... i have fairly eclectic
tastes. I particularly enjoy music with a very strong rhythm and
percussion. I tend to avoid country music though, and most
classical will probably put me to sleep, though I have a few
favorites that I like to use for mental journeys.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my kids, family and friends, health, spirituality, a good book,
good music, a comfy kitty, and all the survival stuff (food, water,
shelter, etc.) ..... yeah, I know that's more than 6, but sometimes
it's fun to break the rules just a little...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Finding companionship and balance in my life
How do we help our fellow citizens who are suffering in so many
ways with homelessness, poverty, addictions, abuse, neglect?
When answering these questions, why do I only get to choose one
answer for myself, but several for a potential partner - seems

Well, if I put it here then it's not very private, is it? You'll
have to talk to me privately to find out those details.
