My self-summary
This whole online dating is all very new and a bit daunting to me, but I'm going to give it a shot.

I'm cute, quirky, sweet, sassy, and smart. I enjoy walking Greenlake, yoga, camping, and the changing of the leaves.... and snuggling by the fire. Raised in the Pacific NW - I love everything it has to offer. My friends and family are important to me; I've known my best friend for over 40 years and most of my friends have been in my life for at least a decade.

I've reached a point in my life where I want to find someone to share it with. I know that sounds cliche' but it's true.

I'd love to have someone to laugh and be silly with, or have long intellectual debates about anything and everything. I'm passionate and strong in my convictions. I'll root for the underdog and fight for the rights of others, but I try to be open minded to all.

I eat well and live a healthy life and want that in a partner as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm learning to live with my empty nest syndrome. My daughter just went off to WWU and it's been a bit harder than I anticipated. I'm realizing I need to fill a lot of free time that used to be occupied by my daughter! I'm a teacher at a progressive private school. I love my job, my co-wrokers, and my students. Sometimes I work crazy hours, but I wouldn't change a thing!
I’m really good at
Being a good friend. Having intellectual debates and conversations, and can find humor in almost anything. Irreverent humor with people I trust.
The six things I could never do without
My daughter
My Family
My Friends
(I'll finish this later)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Social issues of the world. How to improve the world around us. If my daughter is getting all she can from her college experience and if she's doing alright on her own?
On a typical Friday night I am
Snuggled in front of the fire with a cat (or dog) on my lap and a book in hand. Or in/out with friends. Good wine, laughter and a nice meal - or sitting on the back deck (mine or a friend's) by the fire pit laughing and discussing words that people frequently misuse.
You should message me if
You consider yourself an intellectual. You're attractive, funny, smart and healthy. I'm attracted to men with drive, who know what they want, education is important to me. I don't necessarily equate a degree with brains, but I worked hard for mine, and I want you to have one too.
