My self-summary
I am an introvert by nature, but have learned how to be extroverted when needed. I don't tend to get uptight about the little things. I was married for 13 years and had an amicable split. I am still friends with my ex. I do not have any kids and do not plan on having any. I don't believe in love at first sight. I am agnostic. I don't smoke and only rarely drink. I like to dance, but have no rhythm. I like to sing, but can't carry a tune. In fact, there are a number of things I like to do but am not good at. I am, however, very good at laughing at myself. I share a house with my mom, who is my best friend, and our three dogs. I think you have to be friends first before you can think about a relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
My current occupation is high school social studies teacher. I have done other things in the past, and will do new things in the future. I'm not the kind of person who likes to work the same job for 30 years.

I am currently addicted to hanjie puzzles.
I’m really good at
Seeing multiple sides of an issue, and I am comfortable with paradoxes within my own belief system.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm really not sure what most people notice about me. To be honest, I've never asked nor have I learned how to read minds.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite genre of books is fantasy and sci-fi. My rankings on movie types would be action first, then comedy, romance, and drama. I do not like horror movies. With music, I like a lot of different genres: country, pop, top 40's, oldies, classic rock....
Six things I could never do without
My dogs
My friends
Intelligent conversation
(I'm stuck on a 6th one)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lately I have been contemplating things I read in online profiles. Please feel free to contact me if you can add any insights on these ponderings. (my wry sense of humor may not come across in type, but trust me, I'm smiling as I write this)

1. When they say they are looking for a woman who takes care of herself - is that the PC way of saying 'good-looking and skinny'? If not, then what would qualify as not taking care of yourself? Would they respond to someone who was overweight but meditated? Is this a way of saying they need a job?

2. "no games, no drama" - are people really a) self-aware enough to recognize in themselves a preference for games and/or drama; and b) are they conscientious enough to say 'oh, guess I won't contact him'? Or, is this a case of 'methink the man (sic) doth protest too much'?

3. What is it with saying you are a non-smoker, but then have a profile picture smoking a cigar? Do cigars not count as smoking in the context of online profiles?

4. How many of us recognize the absurdity of our own online profiles?

I haven't read any women's profiles, or I'm sure I would have had additional ponderings.
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy that the week is over. Friday nights are for relaxing and\or having fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like bowling. I'm mostly an open book.
The two of us
