Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I think like an artist, by that I mean that I don't look at life as
having just straight lines, I bend them with my imagination,
turning black and white into blue and yellow - some people see what
I see, but regardless, I've piqued their curiosity with my
originality and inventiveness. I am a successful professional and
parent, happy with who I am and life, despite feeling lately like
something is missing. The things that are most important to me are
my family and friends, and being all that I can be and the best
person I can be. Money is important to live, but has never been my
god....I place a high importance on my career and am fortunate
enough to have landed in a very unique environment where we all
work to our strengths and still have fun everyday.
I am looking for that special man who can capture and hold my
attention and be confident enough to know that he is worth my time.
I believe that fun comes from who you are with rather than what you
are doing; the guy who can be good company and transform the
mundane into a great time, is the one I have been waiting to find.
The art of conversation is important to me and the ones who can
hold their own with both the silly and serious topics will spark my
interest...Laughter needs to be the norm, not the exception, since
after all, isn't life to be enjoyed rather than merely gotten
through? I believe in love at first sight and Santa!!! In my
younger years I saw only in black and white and was very passionate
in my beliefs of what was right and wrong - I was told by a very
important person in my life that I would mellow with age and
eventually see the world as not so clearly in strictly black or
white and see the shades of gray that life really is about, and he
"Embrace frayed edges, worn pages and laugh lines.....true beauty
lies in imperfections."
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm settled in my career and enjoy going to work everyday where
each day is different and one is never sure what the day will hold!
In my non-working hours, I devote some time to volunteering and
doing what I can for those in need. My current passionate cause is
fundraising for Manes and Motions which is a therapeutic riding
center, helping children and adults living with cognitive and
physical disabilities with the opportunity to enjoy equine-related
activities for therapeutic, recreational, sport and educational
purposes. I am also an avid reader, love to cook and immensely
enjoy the game of baseball. I have a special place in my heart for
horses having owned a couple when my daughter was growing up. I
keep very active, exercising several times a week and enjoying all
kinds of outdoor activities. In the summer, the very best personal
day would be spent ocean-side, sunbathing and reading a good book.
I have a thirst for learning new things and will take classes that
interest me or attend programs that enrich me on some level. LOVE
the game of Scrabble and have multiple games of Words With Friends
going at all times!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am a very good listener and problem solver with my compassionate
personality. I cook well and love to experiment with new recipes. I
have an eye for design and love creating beautiful things. I'm very
good at being a good friend and always have time for those who mean
a lot to me - my daughter thinks I'm the best mother ever so I must
be doing something right there as well!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been told that people are drawn to me for my easy going
mannerisms and warmth which is apparent. I can immediately put
people at ease and have a kind and giving soul. And then there is
always my hair...... :) well actually it USED to be my hair which I
have now grown out to look more look a mother of the bride!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite books are too numerous to mention, but of late I've
been drawn to reading Lisa Gardner and Harlan Coben who tells the
cold truth and in today's world there is a lot of that. I also
enjoy Jodi Picoult for the same reason of portraying real life on a
page. I enjoy movies and recently thoroughly enjoyed seeing
Lincoln. I LOVE plays and theater in general and am enjoying being
a seasons ticket holder at Connecticut Cabaret theater where you
can bring your own anything in and enjoy a very unique evening! I
adore Italian food and when I'm craving something and feeling very
hungry, often times my choice is pizza. I eat a lot of salad and
consider that a must in my life - not a huge meat eater in general
but I do enjoy good food!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Never, ever could do without sunshine, would never want to be
without my family and friends, would find it difficult to be in a
place where there wasn't a beach and ocean - would miss vacations
immensely, life without my daughter is unthinkable and I personally
need and thrive on intelligent and stimulating conversation, as
well as laughter. Oops, forgot reading!!!!!!!!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think a lot of how wonderful it would be to meet a person with
whom I click with on every level - at this point in my life, there
would be nothing better than to ride out these golden years with
the perfect person for me and I will never give up looking - I know
that you are out there somewhere waiting to be found.....looking
for the one that will take my breath away and sweep me off my feet
- I would also enjoy taking your breath away....
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
relaxing with friends after a very busy week. On Fridays, I like to
be out early and home fairly early to start the weekend. I think
old age must be creeping up on me since I no longer enjoy being out
til the wee hours of the morning.... :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that I miss my mom, who just recently passed away, every day.
