My self-summary
I must be one of a kind, or at least a few because I've answered over 600 match questions, and the best I've been hitting lately is people in the 70% range. Well, at least I'm not your run-of-the-mill girl. That's good news, don't you think?

Unlike most of you, (at least according to your profiles) I'm not easy going and laid back. I've cheated death at least twice, and had several near misses. This has led me to an appreciation for waking up each morning and fumbling for my coffee. But I do believe in a drama free life, and have a quiet, composed demeanor. But it pays not to judge the book by its cover here.

I've just turned 60, which is something a woman never likes to admit and single for four years. But there are advantages to dating a woman of ah, more mature years. I'm financially secure. Not rich, but you know, set. So there must be some security in knowing that I can pay my own bail, you know, in case we go wild and crazy and smash up some go carts, or something. And nothing much shocks or throws me. Okay, there are a couple things I'll question, but as long as you aren't a crossdresser, I'm good.

As tempting as it is, I'm not interested in men more than ten years younger than me. Sorry. Won't happen. Some of you look absolutely delicious, but I'm on a low sugar diet.

I have no patience for married men or those that live with significant others. At my age I'm not interested in anyone that isn't absolutely truthful about their relationship status.

And one last thing. I'm not interested in a long distance relationship. I believe that to be the antithesis of what dating is about.
What I’m doing with my life
I write for a living. Yeah, there are some people that do that. Mainly I write other people's books for them. Ssssh, I can't talk about it.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Baking. Reading strange glyphs on a piece of paper and telling you the story of your life. And apparently, buying the same color of shoe over and over again. What's up with that?
The first things people usually notice about me
My lovely Irish eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Exotic foods from foreign lands, junk foods, salads
Science fiction
Rock (all kinds except very heavy metal) and New Age. (What can I say. I'm a woman of extremes,)
Favorite Movies: (And there are many more, but) The Last Samurai, and Practical Magic.
Six things I could never do without
high speed internet
cell phone
That's it, I'm pretty low maintenance
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The nature of the Universe and the next piece I'm will write.

Why you guys feel the need to put in your profile that you are looking for an "affectionate" woman. Isn't that rather the point?
On a typical Friday night I am
Rewriting my dating profile. (sigh)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have bad restaurant karma. It never fails, the order comes out wrong, something is forgotten, etc. Every time. It's very sad.

What? Not enough self disclosure?

I own an official 3-D Star Trek chess set. How's that for cool?

Recently added an official Star Trek bathrobe (blue with lieutenant's strips) to my collection of Star Trek memorabilia. (No, I don't buy these things. My adult children buy these things as gifts. This is what happens when I don't update my Elfster wish list.)

You should not pay attention to the personality traits on the bottom of the profile. It say's that I have less suave, but that's not true. I buy that shampoo in the large versions all the time, so I have plenty of it.

What? That's not what it means?
You should message me if
you are single, and you want to meet a new friend and possibly carry on things to something more.
The two of us
