My self-summary
People describe me as kind, thoughtful, sensitive, and loyal. And, I'm a very friendly person. I will start up a conversation with you in an elevator, a grocery store line, or at the gas pump. I find people always have something interesting to say if you give them a chance.

I have many interests because I find almost everything interesting and/or humorous on some level or other. I think life is one long learning opportunity.

I've traveled a bit (Canada, England and France) I have relatives in those places. I would love to travel more. I enjoy going on day trips like driving up to the redwoods, or weekends away at the beach.

I have a pug named "Winston". He and I walk about a mile and a half everyday, but that's about it for me - other than watching a good game on telly or at an arena.

I'm really missing having a partner, friend, and lover. Life is so much more meaningful when you have someone you can love, trust and share your life with. Clear, honest communication is very important to me in a relationship. Without it there is no hope of a lasting partnership.

I'm generally a very happy, easy going person. You have to do something pretty outrageous to make me angry.

Politically - I'm pretty liberal, but fairly tolerant of other peoples views as long as your not a fanatic.

I like kissing and cuddling, music and dancing - but I'm not a great dancer, but who cares when you're having fun!

Finally, I love to laugh. I really have a great sense of humor, albeit, somewhat odd - my family is British! Say no more!

I'm looking for someone who is free of a lot of drama and is comfortable in their own skin. If you feeling like chatting online in order to get to know each other a bit better, drop me a line. I'm always happy to respond to your message, or we can talk on the phone. It's a great way to get to know each other.
What I’m doing with my life
I work part-time on weekends in a retail store . I spend most of the week at home, with my Mom and my Sister (I moved in with them after my divorce), while I work on developing an app for the iPhone and iPad. But it is very slow going as my ideas for it keep changing LOL
I’m also writing a kids book (This is what I do for fun)- which is coming a long well.
I’m really good at
People say I make them feel happy.
I'm good with kids.
I’m great with animals - just love em.
I'm a good cook.

Since I used to be a researcher, I’m good at figuring things out. I’m a very curious person. I like to take things apart to find out how they work, and then putting them back together again. Sometimes, they work again.

I’m good at meditating. I find beautiful places (the woods, or on the beach, or in the mountains) at least once a week, and sit quietly for a while and just decompress.

I’m really good at being honest without hurting anyone's feelings. In my book of Personal Principals - Honesty comes first.
The first things people usually notice about me
My red hair, My height 4’12”, My smile. And, that I laugh at my own jokes a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
BOOKS: Fiction: "1984", Almost any story about time travel," Life of Pi", "Eat, Pry, Love", Novels written by Aleksander Solzhenitsyn, "Lovely Bones", "Stiff"," The Eyere Affair", Non-Fiction: Books on Linguistics, Anthropology, Geology, and History-especially the Dark Ages.

MOVIES: Just about all of them (except westerns) I used to work in the TV/film industry, so I like to keep up with what's happening on the large and small format screens. FAV TV: Big Bang Theory, and Criminal Minds.

FOOD: I love to go out on my Birthday and have Prime rib. The rest of the year, I like a variety of food: Mexican, Chinese, Thai, Indian, British, and of course - American!

MUSIC: It really depends on the mood I'm in. I enjoy going to the symphony, and I enjoy going to a rock concert every once in a while.
Six things I could never do without
My Daughter
My Friends
My Dog
My iMac
A Cup of Tea
and, My Mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How lucky I am to have all I need, and that I don’t need a lot to be happy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday, mostly I like tidy up my apartment, walk the dog, come home and chat online, or work on the computer for awhile - then watch a movie , meditate for 10 or 15 minute, and hit the sack. Not too thrilling I know, but it’s may way. But, you do realize if I were in a relationship a Friday would be much more fun than the aforementioned evening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really want to tell you, but it’s private.
You should message me if
You are non judgmental, relatively happy in your own skin. And, you are looking for someone to care about and for someone who will care about you while have fun doing it! P.S. It would be really great if you liked Pugs, and traveling around and about.
The two of us
