Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
responsible and self sufficient might be words others use when
describing me but it's taken years to get that way. It's given me
the freedom to pursue a lot of fun and interesting things in my
life. Always on a learning curve so like to read, travel, theatre,
stay healthy, exercise, and love to eat. Fairly pragmatic in how I
handle my life and figure I'm responsible for it - if I want
something I have to figure out how to get it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I swim with a Masters swim team and compete with other teams
locally and sometimes internationally. I also run with a group but
not necessarily training for marathons, mostly as an adjunct to my
swimming with a little 24 hour fitness thrown into the mix once a
week. Sing with a Gay Men's chorus for several years now which has
given me a great appreciation for music and how it affects myself
and others we perform for. I'm a Nurse/teacher for a school
district which reminds me daily the responsibility every adult has
to be a role model to a younger generation - we are always being
watched - yikes!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening and problem solving but won't give an opinion unless
asked (most of the time)! Good at giving people a second chance
(not so good the 3rd time around). Love to volunteer and help
people who genuinely need it. Have a knack for organizing after
I've spent half an hour looking for something.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Not sure about what people first notice about me - I've never
asked. I stay in shape and have had comments about my butt - not
sure that would be the first thing a person would see if I walked
into a room (unless it's backwards). Maybe my blue eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

these conversations are perfect for face to face meetings - too
many likes and thoughts on these topics, but in general, I love to
read! Newspaper almost daily, always have my Kindle charged and
ready to take with me, autobiographies, non-fiction, science
fiction, mysteries, classical. I can listen to most types of music
- not so much hip hop/rap (it's more like poetry with noise behind
it), I really like the theatre and try to go to shows as much as
possible in L.A., here in long beach or wherever I happen to be.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'd have to think about this question but I think everyone would
secretly like to put "toilet paper" on this list - lol Here
- A place to call home.
- At least one friend
- The commitment to stay healthy
- Being responsible for my actions
- Being a person others can trust
- Following thru on my promises
- I'm cheating now - Still need, food, water, electricity, cell,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What to do next - things that I've wanted to do like
travel/education/restaurants etc. As a single person I have the
time to do many things but I'd prefer to do them with a friend or
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
meeting friends for dinner/movie or catching up on laundry and
recorded shows on my DVR. Friday sometimes sneaks up on me during
the week. I haven't planned anything until last minute. - It's
basically a crap shoot.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I could eat breakfast anytime of the day or night.
