The one thing I am passionate about...
Raising my kids to be happy, healthy, and self-sufficient -- and yet, still finding time for my friends and dating. My career is very important to me, and a big source of personal satisfaction. Though not prone to risky behavior, I do believe in living with no regrets. I'm a sensitive and caring person, though my communication style is straight shootingand direct (as you can tell by my not too long answers).
I typically spend my leisure time
Reading, running, talking with friends
The most influential person in my life has been
I'm looking for someone who's confident and content with their lives, must be hard working, fun loving, and funny. Sensitive, but not a wimp. He must love kids, dogs and the outdoors. Be passionate about his interests, but not fanatical and inflexible. He needs to love music and books, and enjoy conversation and wine and coffee and kissing.
The first thing people notice about me
I'm genuine, believable, and earnest.
The last book I read and enjoyed
Jane Eyre -- classic, but frought with sexual tension. And how do you beat a love story that has lines like "truth of my truth, marrow of my marrow"?
The three things which I am most thankful for
- good health
- happy healthy children
- successful enjoyable career
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
I am spontaneous (as in a "let's drop everything and drive to Napa for a glass of wine" or a "let's go to NY this weekend" kind of way).
Friends Describe me as
Dependable, Genuine, Intelligent, Thoughtful
A little more about me
I'm a down to earth, unpretentious, take me as I am kind of gal. Very focused on my kids and career, but with a "hopeless romantic" side. It doesn't take much to make me happy -- a good book, some good music, a hike, coffee and a chat with a good friend.
