My self-summary
Am I crazy or just hopeful to think that I could find love online...
I have great friends, loving family, wonderful job, cute little house, and 1 goofy dog. My 2 boys are almost men and very capable of taking care of themselves. It's now time for me to explore, travel, and be a little less responsible. Have any ideas? I'm looking for a co-pilot. Can't you just hear Italy and Greece calling? What about the California coast? I want to explore every nook and cranny. How about a stopover in Austin for some real barbecue and good music?
The arts, especially the visual arts, have always been a part of my life. I guess you could call me artsy, but that sounds so silly. You could also call me outdoorsy, but please don't. I do love to hike, swim, run, and just hang outdoors, but I, also, love a good reason to put on a little black dress and heels. Maybe I'm a romantic, but I know that there is a really nice guy out there who is sweet, fun, caring, thoughtful, maybe a little sarcastic, and great at making me laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm learning the in and outs of being an empty nester. I have wonderful kids that are almost off on their own. Now it's my turn. It would be so nice to find someone special to share/conspire in my new adventures.
I’m really good at
teaching, organizing big events, cooking (so I've been told)
The first things people usually notice about me
my blue eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
There are too many movies and books out there, 2 all time favorites are The Princess Bride and Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
Big NPR fan, the Moth Hour, this American Life, TED Radio Hour, A Prairie Home Companion
Musical taste runs from Texas blues to rock to singer/song writers to indie bands. Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Who, Elvis Costello, Mark Knopfler, the National, Shins, Alt-J, Jack Johnson, Arcade Fire, John Mayer Trio... I try to make it to ACL every few years.
Food favorites are good sushi, Tex-mex, seafood, lots of spicy!
The six things I could never do without
my family
the beach
good friends
good food
good music
time for fun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why a guy would not put up at least one picture of him smiling...
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging with friends or hanging at home. It depends on what's happening.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Silly question
You should message me if
Love the beach, love the outdoors, physically active, can be a little crazy, can be a little mellow. If you are open minded, affectionate, honest, and as comfortable at a black tie affair as a neighborhood pool hall. Still likes to push up close to the stage for a really good band. You are smiling in at least one of your profile photos. Might be up to relocating to somewhere west like Austin, Texas, Colorado or California in a few years.
