Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to think of myself as an energetic and adventurous
individual who has a very positive outlook on life. The activities
I enjoy reflect that thinking. I enjoy the outdoors and like to go
biking, hiking, and exploring. I'm also an active gym enthusiast
and take pride in the fitness level I have achieved and continue to
achieve. I'm an avid reader and theatre goer, have a background in
music and dance and enjoy many different musical styles as well as
a variety of dance forms. I work as a reading teacher and tutor and
am very involved in the field of learning disabilities,
particularly reading disabilities. I'm interested in other cultures
and different ways of life and therefore like to travel. I like
researching places of interest and finding unique places to stay,
explore, and eat as opposed to traditional tours that manage
details. I've done a good bit of traveling but there's so much more
to do and see - and always too little time! Part of traveling is
becoming familiar not just with places but with how others live and
think. I like taking the opportunity to meet people in that way.
Like everyone, I am more than the sum of my parts. In fact, I keep
learning new things about myself. I think about how I've changed
over the years and am basically pleased about how I've evolved.
Certainly, bringing up two sons, although I did not do it alone,
was a life changing event. I'm proud of my young adult sons (who no
longer live at home) and am always a mother; but I also see myself
as an individual with my own set of requirements that need to be
taken care of. I'm a very independent person and usually go after
what I need and want. I enjoy my independence but am certainly
aware that many activities would be more fun if they were shared
with someone special.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Reading teacher, private tutor, special ed advocate. working out,
active, theatre and movie goer, etc. - doing lots of good things
with my life and enjoying myself.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
working with children and adults. I have lots of positive energy
and I think it comes across to those I come in contact with. I try
to enjoy myself while also letting others know that I am enjoying
them as well.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair - lots of curly hair. That's just first - there are plenty
of other things to notice as well...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
So many good books, movies, shows, music and food - I don't want to
limit myself. I'm open to lots of different art forms and enjoy
being stimulated by something new and different. I also like to
experience different cuisines - particularly if I'm experiencing
the whole culture while traveling.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my children, my independence, the arts, my home, being stimulated
mentally and physically.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how I've lived as a daughter, a wife, a mother, a lover and how
I''ve changed and grown. I also think about the world we're living
in and how life has changed to a worrisome degree - although I do
not like to dwell on negatives. I don't like current politics in
Virginia and it frightens and angers me.
