My self-summary
Hi, thanks for stopping by. I would like to spend time with a bright and witty woman. I have tremendous respect for women and would love to find a strong, adventuresome woman who will share some her passions in life with me, and vice versa.

I am not a simple human being, but I live a fairly simple life. I am smart, dryly funny and a bit of an unapologetic workaholic, but the time I break away is very important to me and I genuinely try to make the most of it. I’m also fit and youthful - I have too much left to do in life to be otherwise! I have 2 twenty something daughters who actually like and are delighted to spend time with me (recently, this meant the 3 of us lying on the floor of the Mojave at 4 a.m. captivated by a meteor shower and a sky of stars the likes of which I've never seen before).

There is little that bores me, but every once in a while there is something that fascinates me. I can have fun on a quiet or raucous evening with friends; with an intellectually stimulating conversation or a sophomoric movie; or a sophomoric conversation and a thought provoking movie. I enjoy a list of outdoor activities that is endless.

Mostly, I aspire to be a basic fun-loving adult in the limited play time that’s available. I am blessed to have great, longstanding friends and I take full advantage of my urban neighborhood - BYO's, local rep theater, indie movie houses, summer concerts in Millennium Park, anything on or in the water, margaritas on the back deck. And anytime I can, I get away to what is both my “shrink’s office” and my “branch office,” otherwise known as my second home in the Indiana Dunes.

I would like to have a well-rounded grownup relationship with someone who is smart and funny and who thinks I’m smart and funny. Looking for a woman who is strong and independent does not mean that I am not caring, attentive and supportive. Beyond that, I have no real preconceived notions about what a partner or companion MUST be like.
What I’m doing with my life
Living it - my daughters, my business, my friends.
Working on it - my interests and my potential.
I’m really good at
Parenting. Helping my clients enhance their businesses. Being a good friend. Seeing things from a different angle.
The first things people usually notice about me
I look younger than my age, fitter than my photo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I've decided that the purchase of my bike - which is one of my favorite things - is the best buy I've ever made in my life. In Spring, 1982, my first Spring in Chicago, I spent $289 on what, at the time, was a fairly high end bike. It has stood the test of time incredibly well and riding on the Lakefront is my staple Friday afternoon workout at least 5 months a year.

Beyond that, lots of nonfiction that helps me understand this crazy world better. Fish or Steak, cooked on the deck as long as it's at least 33 degrees. Any music Pandora throws at me; ranges from old/"my" music: Dylan, Petty, Clapton, Etheridge, Raitt (she was great at Ravinia in 9/16! to more modern rock: Bleachers, Imelda May, Elle King).
Six things I could never do without
My daughters and, in no particluar order - my work, my beach house, 1792 bourbon, Trianon tequila.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Building my business; how to get my married friends to spend time with me; how to watch less TV.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideally, at a good, fun Chicago BYOB with 2-4 good friends and 3-5 good bottles of something.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing comes to mind. Either I'm very private or I have little to hide.
You should message me if
You are smart, funny, outdoorsy and: Anything I've written here resonates with you and, preferably, you live pretty close to the North Side of Chicago. The age range above is sort of random; so long as you are youthful and can stimulate my brain or make me laugh, I am very attracted to women my own age, so I really don't mean to discourage anyone.
The two of us
