Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm curious, authentic, easy company, and I don't play games.
I am interested in subtleties of the moment, simple pleasures,
people being good to each other, having fun and noticing details,
...being playful and laughing. And below but close to the surface I
am very smart, sharp, and serious. I've always loved being near
strong intellectual stimulation (my mom's the bookish one and my
dad's pretty brilliant), though I don't need to be constantly
intellectually engaged or immersed myself. I find so much of life
interesting and intriguing on many levels. I do miss crowded NYC
cafes where I'd overhear great stories that would spark an
adventure of my own, or alert me to an event or book to check out -
but I enjoy the calmer pace here and the trees & sky. I've
lived in 5 states (grew up in New England) and I have friends all
over the world who I wish I could visit more often and more
I like meaningful conversation and the company of thinker/doers,
clever design, interesting homes, healthy food, blue skies, being
fit, neighborhood walks, doing projects together. Comfort trumps
style though aesthetics are a significant kind of comfort.
I'm not so interested in politics, government, religion, or sports
but when I do tune in it's to NPR, Colbert, John Stewart or the
I believe in taking responsibility and in paying it forward.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am looking forward to the next chapter! which I'd like to share
with someone smart, playful, loving, and generous. I split from my
ex-husband in '09 and have been balancing my life inside and out in
nice ways, spending more time with friends, renovating my house,
and enjoying the independence and flexibility of having my own
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Words with Friends, being a good friend, noticing unusual details,
making connections and observations in conversation, I'm always
learning something new.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile, a grounded sense of self confidence. I've been told by
many that I light up a room.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I enjoy The Moth podcasts and other true stories or interviews on
public radio or on line - fun to listen while doing things. I like
to attend lectures where people talk about their experience,
expertise, or perspective.
I love reading on trains or while walking! Recently read Stephen B.
Johnson's "Where Good Ideas Come From" and the Steve Jobs bio (good
combo, by the way). I lean toward Booker Prize winners, or
contemporary fiction recommended by others but haven't read much
I love movies, esp @Midtown/Tara. Mostly indies, some mainstream,
documentaries, shorts. I wish I could see all the Academy Award
I'm not big on TV and tend to make running commentary throughout
(can't help it)! Watching a full season of something interesting
(with others) can make a cozy weekend.
I love music as craft and appreciate others' talent. My iPhone has
a wide selection, mostly from friends' collections.
I love theater; musicals & fluff not so much. It would be great
to see good local productions.
Food: fresh & healthy. Eating out I prefer appetizers, several
choices & sharing to eating a big meal. Local, farm-to-table,
unusual flavor combinations (like rosemary ginger blondies or
toasted sesame ice cream!), interesting experiences, something
"different." More quality/genuine; less pretention/ceremony. Over
the top can be really interesting on occasion. I will definitely
have an opinion!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
High thread count sheets
Companionship & affection
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Projects. Every day is different. My thoughts are more in the
present and in the future than in the past. How can I play more and
do less?! How can I make something better?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
My work isn't 9-to-5 so it varies - sometimes I don't know it's
Friday! I might attend a social event with friends, see a movie, go
out to dinner, stay in and be cozy.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
...is to being a girl, wanting to be cherished, adored and treated
well, protected and provided for by a loving hero.
