Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am learning that life is about adapting. Going from being single
to in a marriage to raising children and building a life it is all
about adaptation. Realizing that you need to be flexible,
compromise and think outside the sphere of your own person. Now I
am facing a new chapter starting over, in a way it's the same but
it is also different. Since we are all shaped by the moments of our
I try to approach life with a positive attitude some days is not
that the glass is half full or empty but it's just nice to have the
glass. Finding joy even in the most trying times. Last summer when
I was going through a very difficult time I found myself at the top
of Mary's Peak just as the sun was setting. It was beautiful and
everything you would expect in a late summer sunset. As I turned to
leave I looked to the east and watched a giant moon rise above the
Cascades. For me that was a wonderful moment.
I try to stay healthy work out when I can, ride bikes take hikes
and swim in the summer. I do enjoy all the nature that is around
us. Being from the east coast I never did the camping thing which
seems to be so popular out here. I don't own a tent or camping
equipment. But I guess I would be willing to dig up a sleeping bag.
But my only stipulation is there has to be a campfire.
My beliefs and political stances are liberal, they are important to
me and I think I would only be compatible with someone who shared
the same core beliefs as me.
It's OK to be on you own and probably better to be with the right
person then to just be with anyone. That is what I am looking for
the right person. If it happens then great if it doesn't then you
just keep looking.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Looking to see where this next chapter in my life will take me. My
oldest if off on the east coast at college and my youngest
graduates in June. He also plans to attend college out of state.
Not being from here and having no family it opens up a wide
possibility of where I could go next.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am not a bad cook have always willing to experiment with new
recipes. Also somewhat handy around the house, can fix electrical,
plumbing kind of like the super in an apartment building.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Currently reading the Wicked series just started the first book,
this was based on a recommendation. I enjoy live theatre, both
dramatic and musical. When it comes to movies it is everything from
foreign and indy to the latest blockbuster. I also have a great
appreciation for the classics going back to the silent era. My
musical taste is rock and was very much into the punk movement in
my youth, don't really listen to in anymore but I''m sure I could
find some Dead Kennedy's and Black Flag. Not much of a country
music fan. Realize that is very popular around here but just not my
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides the special people in my life I can't think of anything
that I just couldn't live without. I guess this goes back to my
vagabond youth when my entire life could fit in one duffel bag.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trying to remind myself that it's best to focus on the positive.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
If not out with friends having a enjoyable time then at home maybe
watching Dr Who with my sons.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I still like to watch cartoons.
