My self-summary
I've been avoiding doing this part (I like answering the questions
- it's easier). How does one sum themselves up in a paragraph or

I'm a Wisconsin girl turned Californian. I love living out here but
I still have a whole lot of midwesterner in me. (I'd like to think
that I have gained from the best in both worlds!) I like football
(Packers of course!), camping, rowing, hiking, dive bars, euchre,
five star hotels & restaurants, good wine, Harley Davidson,
whiskey presses, oysters on the beach, thunderstorms, sledding and
more. (Guess which one is WI and which is CA...)

I'm very much a people person who thrives around others. I don't
believe in - or have patience for - jealousy or mistrust. I like to
think that people are generally good and deserve a second

I don't take much stock in the zodiac but I do seem to follow some
of the Scorpio characteristics. One could argue that we can all
find certain attributes in us from each sign but let's go with the
standard understanding; passionate, sensitive, sexual, emotional,
social, a faithful friend. They do say that Scorpios have strong
will power which is not true in my case. I like excess!

I would like to find a partner. I'm looking for someone who can be
by my side as well as live their own life. I want someone who will
challenge and support me while letting me challenge and support
them. Chemistry is extremely important to me. You can't fake it. I
want someone I connect with mentally, socially and sexually. I want
to have a family someday and need to find a man who wants the same
What I’m doing with my life
I'm in a transition time right now. I'm in the middle of a career change and am looking for a new apartment. I have been a professional nanny for over 15 years. I have been a live-in for the past 5 1/2 years. The job isn't there anymore (kids are older, the parents are around more) so I have a new job. I'm going to be working as a preschool teacher. It hasn't been a goal of mine but I do love working with kids. It takes advantage of my skills. (I like to say that my mentallity level on par with a small child -or a 12 year old boy. You'll have to ask for clarification..) I have a business in mind that I would like to start for my final career change but that is a few years down the road. I'm ejoying living my life and am looking for someone to share it with me.
I’m really good at
reading people (or at least I like to think so...) and having a good time! I also make a fantastic margarita and an amazing bloody mary!
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my height (And I like to wear heels..) or eye contact. I generally look people in the eye and smile when I first encouter them. It seems to be something that people comment on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A Dance with Dragons (currently reading), Shel Silverstien, Emily Dickinson, Dr. Suess, Sandra Boyton, Fountainhead (currently reading), the Dungeons & Dragons series, Ahab's Wife, Pride & Prejudice, The Hobbit, Watership Down, Harry Potter (the books and the movies), Guns, Germs & Steel (the movie, I haven't read the book), Harold and Maude, Breakfast Club, The Princess Bride, Love Actually, Billy Elliot, Arrested Development, Dexter, Fast 5 (bad movie but totally fun!), Jaws, NPR, Lyle Lovett (trust me..), Keb Mo', B.B King, Almost all types of music and food!
Six things I could never do without
Family (this includes my close friends that have become family)
A social life
Red meat (at least on occasion)
Contact with my kids (that I've nannied for; I don't have any children.)
Football or Books (I couldn't decide b/t the two so I listed 7 things.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The things that I should be taking care of but have been avoiding. I'm a queen procrastinator.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical? Either chilling at home with a bad movie and a glass (ok, bottle) of wine, hanging out with friends, or at a bar (solo or with companions).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty open about most things. Those things that I do keep private are certainly not things that I'll share on a public forum! I suppose I could share a couple of my secret loves: I love to sing loudly to Meatloaf in the car. I have a crush on Scott Simon and laugh out loud whenever he laughs. (He has a great laugh!)
You should message me if
You're interested in finding out if we have good chemistry.
The two of us
