My self-summary
I've been on and off this for a while...maybe a year. It's the holidays and I am going to have a break and more time coming up so I thought I'd try it one more time.

Most of my life has been focused on building up networks of strong friendships. I really enjoy people and don't have a specific type. I have a big heart and am honest, affectionate, and sensitive and not shy about sharing how I feel. My hope is to find someone who is emotionally settled, around my age, and single. And... a crazy sense of humor, a quirky side, honesty, authenticy, and patience would be great too.

I have a son in second grade who I love like crazy. I've been divorced/separated for 7+ years. I'm pretty settled with myself and my life and would love to meet someone now as I'm in a good space.

I find something interesting about almost everyone I meet. I am really curious and always up for learning something new. I read a lot, love good conversation and consider intelligence sexy. I've lived in Boston, NYC,LA, and ultimately San Francisco...moved both for school and work over the years. I've also traveled in Peru, Turkey, Russia, Italy and Spain. My parents are East Coast transplants with some Italian blood and, along with my siblings, I'm passionate and like to express my opinion. I don't care if you've traveled or not, as long as you are passionate about something and curious and nice.

I love the outdoors. I've done a few boundary water canoe trips and hiked in the Rockies. I led camping trips for freshman while in college and have also been lucky enough to hike in Denali and Mt. Rainier. It's been a long time since I've been able to go on a true camping trip but do enjoy skiing (both kinds) and generally being outside.

So, that's it. Let me know if anything sparks your interest.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time and like my job. I've been divorced/separated for a few years and I'm not in a hurry to get married again, but am looking to date more.

Isn't this the same as the previous question?
I’m really good at
Playing games with my son, talking, reading, hiking, down hill skiing, listening, watching mindless tv, getting a glass of wine with friends, dancing (or so I was told that I had natural talent at a group swing lesson once)
The first things people usually notice about me
is that I'm very approachable and put people at ease
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Right now reading Ann Patchet's latest, and hoping it's as good as Bel Canto. New York Times on SUnday if I can and so many more books I love - need to come back to this....too many.

Movies - Almodovar, Woody Allen, James Bond, Pixar, Cohen Brothers, Bridesmaids, and almost anything except the action films with lots of guns a la Schwarzenheger. When I lived in LA, I saw movies all the time and really miss this now that my tie is more limited as a mom.

Music - The Replacements, Prince, Neil Young, Jack White (and all his bands), John Prine, Soul Asylum, Lyle Lovitt, and more..

Food - love to go out to eat, like all cuisines...restaurants - Victory 44, Muffaletta, Scenic Cafe outside of Duluth, Sanctuary, and lots of others
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- the things I'd like to say but never would in response to asenine comments people make at work (yes, I'm not as pollyanna as my profile above might suggest)

- writing a sitcom or one hour drama that encapsulates my dark side in a funny way

- Raising my son well

- plans to be made to get together with friends who live in other states and here in town.
On a typical Friday night I am
With my son, coming down from the week at home or eating dinner or doing something with friends who also have kids.

Sometimes, I have a sitter and get a drink after work wtih friends or go to an early movie. Saturday nights, I'm more likely to go out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like hard liquor, hate beer. Okay, not that private...but most women won't admit it.
You should message me if
You are interested in meeting me.
You are divorced or single and close to my age
You are stable in your life - have an income and emotionally settled.
