My self-summary
Basically, I'm a very unique person of exceptional character - honest, ethical, unpretentious, loving and compassionate. I believe my family and friends would also say of me that I am kind, considerate, very dependable and loyal.

I am also an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person; see the writings of Elaine Aron), which doesn't mean that I'm fragile or easily offended. In a nutshell, it means that I tend to feel/sense things with more intensity than most folks and I am more keenly aware of subtleties in my environment. (I would love to meet a man who is also an HSP or understands and appreciates what this means.)

p.s. Take the bar graph under the "Personality" tab with a grain of salt. Some of them are accurate, but the others are laughable. I don't know how they came up with that graph. :oP And some of the questions that are asked under the "Questions" tab are incredibly lame.
What I’m doing with my life
I strive to create harmony in all aspects of my life, beginning with a simple, natural, peaceful way of being and living. I'm grateful for every day that I have to keep exploring and experiencing all that this life has to offer.
I’m really good at
Well, my sons would say that I have been a great mother - raising them as a single parent, without the support or involvement of a father - they have both become fine men of admirable character. I'm good at and enjoy most things domestic, including cooking, stitchery/sewing, gardening. I'm an excellent writer, editor/proofreader.
The first things people usually notice about me
I am cheerful and friendly, so I would say people first notice my smile since I use it often! But, because I am an introvert, people sometimes mistake me for being aloof. (It's just that I tend to observe others before 'warming up' to those with whom I feel most comfortable.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Oh, my goodness ... this one is impossible to answer in detail!
Books? non-fiction; those that expand my mind
Movies? most genres, but NOT violence, horror or porn
Shows? magic, comedy, live theatre; musicals are not high on the list, but tolerable
Music? most genres; but do not like anything that is 'jarring' to the senses, so I don't care for most hard rock, rap or hip-hop
Food? I follow a whole food, plant based diet - fruits, veggies, nuts/seeds, beans/legumes, and a few grains. NO meat, dairy, eggs and/or processed, pre-packaged foods - but I am flexible, NOT fanatical about this! I thoroughly enjoy preparing flavorful food, including various ethnic dishes.
Six things I could never do without
Hmmm, never?
Let's see if I can come up with six ...
1) the basics, of course: food, water, air
2) the love and companionship of family, friends and animals
3) books
4) nature
5) a quiet place of solace
6) faith in something greater than myself
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
Although I truly am more of a 'home body', I enjoy a night out from time to time, as well. However, I have no typical Friday nights ... or any other day/night, for that matter. My life is a journey and each day can lead me on a new and interesting path. I like to stay open to the possibilities!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm pretty open about most things. I live by the addage:
Ask me anything you want. I will either tell you the truth or I will tell you it is none of your business ... but I won't lie to you.
You should message me if
anything I have said has sparked your interest and you are sincere about the possibility of developing an enduring, committed relationship based on mutual love and respect, with lots of humor, tender affection, and passionate intimacy.
The two of us
