My self-summary
Recovering from the Presidential election. It will take time.

Tectonic shifts without cracking the foundation. Now an empty nester living in the city after a few years in Westchester and so many other places. At this stage of life, I think I know what I want but I'm not so arrogant to be certain. I know who I am. Confident, sharp, kind of intense, intensely kind, pretty funny, maybe pretty, grown up girl.

I'm a tv news and sports chick with an MBA. I moved all over the country in pursuit of my career and then continued working while following my then-husband's around the world. Twice. It was thrilling and life-changing. I try not to be a know-it-all but I can talk about lots of things with lots of people and enjoy all of it.

I'm ambitious and thinking about what's coming next. I am soft and resilient, have experienced love and loss, and keep coming back for more.

I wouldn't even dare to define you either. But I know this much. You're a person who knows that the more you know, the less you understand. You care about the world around you, exude empathy, curiosity, humor and confidence.

I'm happy you have a past, and I'll take you as-is... just ask you do the same. We're probably not going to change much from here on out. I plan to work for a while out of desire and responsibility. I love travel as much as anyone and I hope to do lots more of it. At some point.

One last thing. Please don't message me if you're married or in a serious relationship. I realize you may have deep unmet needs and think I'll be the one to fill your gaps. I can't be her. Really.
What I’m doing with my life
Mother, daughter, sister.
Friend, boss, colleague, employee, connection.
Student, teacher, thinker, dreamer, sleeper.
Lover, partner, artist, muse.
Co-conspirator, confidant, protector, listener.

If anyone had told me 20 years ago "mother" would be the first word I'd use to define myself, I'm sure I would have laughed.
I’m really good at
Avoiding emoticons.
Fast-forwarding through commercials.
Helping you find the right words for that thing you want to say or need to write. Figuring you out, whether you like it or not. Fixing things, whether I like it or not. Ordering food, giving and receiving affection, sleeping in places not meant for sleeping, finding humor in the inappropriate, an uncanny sense of timing. Making people feel comfortable, understood, valued and loved.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, my hair, my skin. Really. They say I don't look my age. They tell me I should lie on these things, because I don't look or act my age. Well, I'm proud of where I am and how I look after getting here. I have a presence. I don't know this because people tell me; I just know it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I should read more. Majored in English and History. Just bought a great book about Habits, but unfortuately left it on the plane. That's not typical though, just ironic. I do a ton of reading though. nyt, wapo, huffpo, social media feeds and the things they link to...

Movies: I'm behind. Enjoy broad range but horror and sci-fi less than others. Indies and foreign a lot. Gravitate toward something that helps/makes me feel something, even if it's deep laughter like Airplane or Animal House. Can watch big musicals like Sound of Music over and over again and Annie Hall would make the top five DVDs I'd take on a desert island.

Shows: Ray Donovan, Masters of Sex, High Maintenance, Homeland, Empire, SportsCenter, CBS This Morning, SNL, Last Week Tonight, Inside Amy Schumer. Not a big reality fan, CNN is the default.

Music: except for some rap, country and heavy metal, I'll listen to anything and love being exposed to new material. My go-to is classic rock, singer-songwriters and the best of jazz and blues.

Food: yes. Love to dine or dive and keep you company or clean up while you cook.
Six things I could never do without
I love stuff as much as the next person, and I'd like to think I could live without most of it. Not that I'd want to, but that I could.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to be more effective. What I'm going to have for lunch. Sex. If there's anything good on tv. Is there a new app I have to have? Is it ok I don't worry about my kids more. I know they're going to be fine. Rather, how did they turn out so great?
On a typical Friday night I am
a little more so. Or less so. Depends on how the week went.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
is that I will admit to some very private things. I'm actually very open and I'm told that's one of the things that makes me exciting. You can decide.
You should message me if
you've read my profile and think we're actually a match, you are not married, you want to get my attention, and you're ready to go. Sharonxoxox
