Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I, as WW said, contain multitudes. I am, however, doing my best to
pare things down.That's what happens when you live in one place for
more time than you might care to admit: stuff collects. It's OK --
I'd never qualify for hoarder status, but I do find that I am
rather overrun with collections of things that I probably don't
need, but can't part with, either. I guess that qualifies as a
I am oxymoronic. (How many OKC-ers are going to admit to that?) To
wit: I am inherently shy, yet often called out on my boldness;
low-key, until I step on the stage; I am private, with a deep
desire that someone might have the interest/invest the time to know
me; and, I am emotionally-rational. Or maybe rationally-emotional.
I haven't decided. My head, heart, guts and parts are all strung on
the same string. Where one goes, the others must follow. I'm either
all in or all out. So FWB/NSA arrangements are not my
interest/style. I will admit, though, that my heart leads the gang.
I've tried listening to my logical, rational side to choose an
appropriate partner and it didn't go. I don't always know where my
heart is going, but it does seem to know what's best.
Interest wise, I'm enthralled with the theater, live performance,
spoken word, improv, music, dance. Let's just put it all together
and say the expressive arts. Things that involve staring at a
screen -- and yes, I do more than my share of them -- are of
decidedly less interest. (Note: screen as in computer, not movie
screen! I love the movies!) My phone is a tool, not a toy. I can go
hours w/o checking my email. (Imagine!)
I'd love to find someone to explore bay area trails and
towns....sit with in the movies...swing with on the dance
floor...and la la la la la. (all the rest of the good stuff.) Buzz
in if you think that might be you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Realizing that The Time is NOW; and that carpe diem has never been
more apt. I don't have a bucket list, but I'm thinking I might need
to get a bucket.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cutting to the chase.
Telling the truth.
Acknowledging what's so.
Listening to what people say.
FInding where it hurts.
Helping to release the pain. (physical, more than emotional, but
both are true).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that I look like someone else they know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Currently, I can't get enough of The Moth.
I would feel I hit the big time to win at a Moth event.
(I didn't win, but I did come in 3rd at my first (and not
attempt. I'm going back in!!!!!!!)
I have bookshelves (filled) in every room of the house so
naming a favorite is impossible. I can say that the biggest
on my shelves is occupied by
Writing (as in how-to's)
An equally difficult task...
here are a few that come to mind off the top...
B'fast at Tiffany's
Being John Malkovich
Last Tango in Paris
Raise the Red Lantern
The Hurt Locker
Monty Python & The Holy Grail
anything blues-y and or
with a great dance beat
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I think most of the rest of everything else is negotiable.
there are a lot of things i have been doing without
that i want back
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
see "what I am doing with my life."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

if you are a devout christian, have a gun in your home,
or think any of the 16 current republican contenders
would be a good choice to lead our country, we really
wouldn't be a good match.
