Funny bits of wisdom from kids:

On Marriage, by kids:
1. HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?
-You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
-- Alan, age 10
-No person really decides before they grow up who they're going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you're stuck with.
-- Kristen, age 10
2. WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?
Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.
-- Camille, age 10
3. HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?
You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
-- Derrick, age 8
4. WHAT DO YOU THINK YOUR MOM AND DAD HAVE IN COMMON?
Both don't want any more kids.
-- Lori, age 8
5. WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?
-Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
-- Lynnette, age 8
(isn't she a treasure)
-On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
-- Martin, age 10
6. WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
-When they're rich.
-- Pam, age 7
-The law says you have to be eighteen, so I wouldn't want to mess with that.
- - Curt, age 7
-The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
- - Howard, age 8
7. IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
It's better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
-- Anita, age 9 (bless you child )
8. HOW WOULD THE WORLD BE DIFFERENT IF PEOPLE DIDN'T GET MARRIED?
There sure would be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn't there?
-- Kelvin, age 8
And the #1 is.......
9. HOW WOULD YOU MAKE A MARRIAGE WORK?
Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck.
-- Ricky, age 10

Okay, so what does that tell you about me? Why absolutely nothing except that I like jokes. But what else? Let's see.

Research shows that most men are looking for beautiful women. Now beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that is true. And each guy has their own tastes. But is you want to be holding me, then you'll have to not be looking for a stick figure girl. That isn't me and hasn't been for a long time. I watch calories, I exercise, but that doesn't change the stubborn genome of my Irish ancestors.

Unlike most of you, I'm not easy going and laid back. I've cheated death at least twice, and had several near misses. But I do have a quiet, composed demeanor, so you won't see the real me on the first or second date. I tell you, it pays not to judge the book by its cover here.

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. Sorry. A girl wants what a girl wants.
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'd have to kill you if I did. (Ooops, sorry, writer's imagination at work. Pay no attention to that.)
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.
The six things I could never do without
computer
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.
