Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am interested in someone who is single, intelligent, assertive,
has a sense of humor, can laugh at himself (life's too short not to
laugh!), outgoing, athletic, fit, romantic, has a great smile, and
nice eyes. Eyes say a great deal about a person. And a great smile
just makes me smile more. Open communication is also extremely
important. I also appreciate guys who put their kids first (if you
have kids of course!). Ultimately, I'm looking for a long term
I prefer warm weather to cold. Give me a beach, some nice white
sand, pretty blue water and palm trees.. my zen! I love to be
silly, laugh and experience new things. I like to explore wineries.
Give me a cold Savignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio any day!
I also enjoy working out at the gym and taking tae kwan do classes.
I like to hike, bike, run, and sometimes just go for a long walk
with my ipod (usually listening to the Kane Show - so I am laughing
while I am walking!). Basically, if I'm outside (and it's warm
enough!) I'm happy!
I have two children. My son is 23 and my daughter is 19.
I run a non-profit creativity educational organization in Virginia
for preschool - college age levels. It is an international
non-profit organization and is my "volunteer" job - But I love
I love sci fi (yup - I'm a nerd! :-)) - got my B.S. in Astronomy
from Penn State and M.Ed and PhD from UVA in education. I taught
for 10 years - first year I taught HS physics.I am currently a
professor at a university. I have a theatre background... used to
perform. I've produced 10 shows for the local community theatre
group when my daughter started to get involved in theatre. I love
seeing shows, listening to live music...almost any kind. Also like
lots of current music - very eclectic tastes..
I grew up in NY - Queens and Long Island - but I've lived in VA for
26 years now!
I'm not a cook - but I'm a good student! Teach me! I do bake a mean
cheesecake though. I actually apologized to my kids for not always
having a home-cooked meal for them and my son said, "Mom, you've
never been stereotypical. Why start now?" I hugged him!
I've been told that having a PhD and/or a black belt can be
intimidating.. not really sure why. If you can't handle a strong,
independent, assertive and smart woman - I'm not your gal... but
I'm also lots of fun! Again.. pictures say a 1000 words...:-)
I keep getting asked if I am really 5 ft.. YES!! Really!! :-)
If you are a smoker or even trying to quit - get back in touch with
me when you've actually quit. It's a non-negotiable. Sorry, I
really don't like the smell.
I am not religious, but I do respect all beliefs. If that bothers
you, then I'm not your gal.
Please have pictures on your profile. I will not respond if there
are no pictures. If you tell me you read my profile and have no
pictures, that tells me you really haven't read my profile.
