ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

This whole internet dating scene is really a strange beast to try and tame. I feel sometimes like I'm in a restaurant, ordering from a menu. It goes something like this...

Me: “I would like The Special, please.”
Waiter: “Excellent choice. How do you prefer Your Special?”
Me: “Wow, now there’s a tough one. Rare is always good but so is well done. May I order sides?”
Waiter: “But, of course! Sides are what complement The Special."
Me: “How about a big helping of charm, honesty, sincerity and kindness, along with a modest amount of good looks and fit physical appearance, followed by a healthy dose of sarcasm and fun spirit, and finally, a sprinkling of self confidence and cockiness (as too much of those surely won't be good for my health).
Waiter: “And what about something sweet to finish with?”
Me: “Are you kidding me?! Um...yes! Who doesn’t want a sweet ending?"

2014 update:
Like so many others on here, I have decided to put my age into a younger bracket. It seems nobody wants to date a 50 year old. (unless they’re 70!) If my age bothers you then we probably are not a good match. I usually am mistaken for the “older sister” when I go out with my kids, probably because I’m so small and petite, but I’ll take it!

I have been on and off of Match longer than I care to admit. I'm finding two extremes: either people wanting no relationships at all and meet for a date or two and then you never hear from them again or people who want to settle down into a serious relationship within a few dates. I seek balance. I believe in taking things slowly and casually with no expectations and seeing where they go from there. I guess I'm somewhere in the middle.

Regarding winks or adding me to your favorites folder... I’m not sure what I am supposed to do...wink back or add you to my favorites folder? It’s all so silly. I like people who are direct. Email me if you are interested, laid back and can roll with life's punches.

I was married for 18 years. I have no baggage with my Ex. We just needed to go our separate ways.

Being a former gymnast and physically active my whole life, I am pretty much drawn to guys who are fairly athletic-looking.

"List one or two of your accomplishments you take the most pride in."
By far, the most rewarding and challenging has been motherhood.

"What is the smartest decision you ever made?"
To go for it and apply to one of the best design schools in the country. I never thought I would get in but I did. It taught me to never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.

"Words my friends and family would use to describe me."
Affectionate, Creative, Dependable, Easy-going, Passionate

"Words the guys I've recently dated would use to describe me."
Girl next door...with an edge. (whatever that means!)

Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI
For fun:

I enjoy getting outside each and every day walking my dogs, (in fact, if I don't get outside daily regardless of the weather I feel like a caged animal!) going to dinner, movies, outdoors. I'm open. I spend most weekends in the summer in Annapolis.

Favorite hot spots:

Outside of the US: Ravello, Italy (Amalfi Coast) and Rome. Locally: Fun restaurants in the D.C., Bethesda, Old Town and Annapolis areas and overall, exploring fun and unusual places. Any beach...Anywhere...Anytime...

Favorite things:

I don't watch that much TV, but when I do, reruns of Two and a Half Men (with Sheen) and The Big Bang Theory are favorites. I'm an adventurous eater and love all kinds of foods. Wearing my lover's old, worn tee shirt with his smell on it. :)

Last read:

I read the newspaper every day. I'm in a book club so we read a lot of material. I love adventure non-fiction, especially Jon Krakauer's work. "Unbroken" is one of my latest reads. "Escape From Camp 14" (about North Korean prison camps) is next.
