The one thing I am passionate about...
I don't have anything in particular that I am passionate about. I guess I'm just about enjoying whatever I'm doing at the moment, be it work, play, or just hanging out. I just do whatever makes me happy. My taste in music is all over the board and I always have something playing in the background, so there's something. I suppose I'm passionate about being liberal, although I am not an extremist. I know that I could never date anyone who voted for or supports our current president. The only sport I am really into is snow skiing and would like to hike more. I would like to become passionate about something new and am up for suggestions!
I typically spend my leisure time
listening to music, walking my dog, having lunch/dinner with friends, gardening, watching movies, talking to friends, puttering around the house, snow skiing in Tahoe, reading, messing around on the computer, shopping occasionally, cooking.
The most influential person in my life has been
There are a lot of different qualities that I am looking for in another person. Unpretentious, honest, open minded, real, funny, rational, caring, similar (but not all the same) interests as me, kind, intelligent.
The first thing people notice about me
You know, I have no idea. People usually don't tell me what they first notice about me and I'm sure it varies from person to person. I think people probably feel I'm friendly, but other than that, ?. Ask them!
The last book I read and enjoyed
The last book worth mentioning was "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire about the Wicked Witch of the West from the Wizard of Oz. Sort of a behind the scenes view of her life. It was interesting. I am reading "Magical Thinking" by Augusten Burroughs right now. It's a collection of short stories of his life, which was kind of crazy. I have about a million books waiting for me. Some of my favorite authors are Ann Patchett, John Irving, Barbara Kingsolver, J.D. Salinger, David James Duncan, Tracy Chevalier and a whole bunch of random authors.
The three things which I am most thankful for
- family and friends
- freedom, life, health, good opportunities, good music, diversity
- California, my job, my past life experiences, really good food
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
There are many different sides to my personality and I want people to get to know me.
Friends Describe me as
Easy-Going, Genuine, Kind, Rational
A little more about me
This is my first experience with internet dating and all and it's a little weird, but what's a single person in Napa to do? There are a lot of things that I would like to do, but don't want to do them alone (ie: camping, going to the theater, hiking, skiing, travel, etc.). I'm looking for someone to create a friendship with and we can see where it goes from there. I am a very genuine person, ready for new experiences. There are way too many things to tell you about myself than would fit in this little box. I hope you get to know me!
