First, let me say that I am pretty darn good about leaving the seat
down. Was that TMI??? OK, here it goes: Although I do dress well,
am polite, work out, possess table manners, and even know a few
show tunes, believe it or not I am indeed straight. I have been
lucky in life and had tremendous opportunities to go places and do
things: Peace Corps, UN, all sorts of athletic events (Ironmans,
marathons, etc). I hold both a JD and an MBA, but in the past have
chosen to do international humanitarian work (I am just gullible
enough to believe that I can change the world). On nice weekends,
you will likely find me out running or biking, followed by a BBQ at
a friend's place. During the winter, the gym is a must. Some
traits: I like to laugh until milk squirts out my nose. I tend to
utilize mouth before brain is fully engaged - this sometimes leads
to foot being utilized as well (though I do say the right thing
often). I have been called 'intense' by some, usually they are
seated on a barko-lounger watching a 'Dukes of Hazzard' rerun and
are oblivious that life is passing them by. I can quote Ayn Rand
and Meatloaf with equal veracity. I own my own tux, but also own 6
different types of athletic shoes (yes 6, just call me Imelda). I
am comfortable discussing art, politics (independent but definitely
lean to the left), sports, etc. I can even be taken shopping
without one of those little leash things tied to my wrist. I am
secure enough not to feel the need to put a spoiler on my Honda. I
try to use the phone if I am going to be late. Presently employing
both topical and oral hygiene regiments (administered daily). I
have been termed 'engaging' (yes, money changed hands but the term
was indeed used). My socks frequently match and I own no clip-on
ties. My name does not appear on any arrest warrants nor
restraining orders. I have no children ("to the best of my
knowledge Senator"). Lastly, I really am pretty darn good about
leaving the seat down.
I have returned to the area after 3-plus years taking care of a
family member. I have returned to the DC area with a new attitude
and a new job that will keep me in the country for the most part. I
love being back in the area and am looking forward to spending the
summer running, biking, kayaking, training for triathlons, etc. I
think of myself as: Smart, but not brilliant; Confident, but not
arrogant; Driven, but not obsessed; Goofy, but not a complete spaz,
etc. Looking to meet new people, have fun, and maybe even get to
know someone special.
In an impromptu effort to be both informative and entertaining let
me offer this: I prefer someone who runs (or works out) frequently
not someone who gets upset (or freaks out) frequently when she gets
a run in her nylons. I favor an advanced degree (and/or rich life
experiences) not someone who advances decrees and ultimatums. I opt
for someone who reads books not someone who can merely spell
b-o-o-k . I would like someone who realizes that running to the
refrig and/or curling fritos (with or without dip) is not exercise
for the body and that recognizes that Rush Limbaugh is not exercise
for the intellect. I would like someone who can mt. Bike part of
the afternoon, take a quick shower, and head out to a dinner party
not someone who starts primping at noon, and has big hair that a
one would need a mt. Bike to get through. Someone who can do the 2
a. m. party scene but it is an occasion not a lifestyle/habit.
Someone who says, 'its only two floors, I'll take the stairs.'
Someone who can laugh at themselves but not point and laugh the
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to make new friends. Trying to reconnect with old friends.
Trying to learn my new job.
I’m really good at
It certainly is NOT filling out online questionnaires.
The first things people usually notice about me
This is a tough one...might it be my dashing good looks??? My
roguish charm??? My sharp wit??? Perhaps my buffed bod??? All good
possibilities, but I am going to go with my humility.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Thai or Indian foods are my favorite, though in my travels I have
eaten some pretty unusual stuff. Musical taste spans the spectrum.
Music is like movies though...if it is good, regardless of the
genre, I am a fan.
The six things I could never do without
I) A good work out.
II) My sense of adventure.
V) Future plans.
VI) Sunny days.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Aside from questions posed by online dating services??? The meaning
of life. Where I am in my present situation vis-a-vis where I want
to be in the future. How can I be a better person??? Boxers or
On a typical Friday night I am
You know, the usual...surrounded by a bevy of supermodels,
approached by rock stars and mogels for my autograph or a few words
of advice, dodging the paparazzi to take calls from the National
Security Advisor, foiling plots by intergalactic villians...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
You mean that mole on my...wait...never mind.
You should message me if
You are looking for a LTR and are active, smart, funny, smile a
lot, want to have children, believe that the world is a great, big,
beautiful place full of possibilities and adventure and think you
might be able to put up with me for an extended period of time.
