The good people at Match say keep it positive and flirty, grab the reader's attention and infuse a bit of humor. No pressure there! Not so sure I can do all of that, but here goes:
I think my friends would say that I am resilient and usually pretty upbeat. A lot of things can bring a smile to my face-my animals, my students, the Geico commercials on TV.
I've accomplished a tremendous amount when I consider what I've been up against-getting my Bachelor's degree while working full-time with a young child (that was some years ago-the "young" child is now grown!), followed by my Master's.
I'm grateful that I have a roof over my head, a job, and of course, my health!
However, I would be so much more grateful to have that special someone in my life. Could it be you? (My flirty challenge, lifted from the example profile-hope that's not considered plagiarism!)
Seriously, I am hoping to meet someone with whom I can feel a connection. After having been married for 33 years, I'm not ready to jump into a serious relationship, but I miss having someone with whom I can share a candlelit dinner, a glass of wine, and some good conversation. And if a connection is there, who knows? We'll just see where it takes us.
