ABOUT ME, BY ME
My friends describe me as the best person they have ever met and they simply can’t believe I am single! My ex once told me that I was the type of person he could sit next to on a long plane ride. I think he would stand by that comment even today. By the way, after the chemistry Regents exam put a damper on my nursing pursuit, I ended up going to cooking school and then I became a teacher, so it worked out okay after all.
I’m-a-catch-because Tweet: I’m your dream girl because I am fun, kind and caring, thoughtful, and light-hearted. But, most importantly, I can cook!
My friends kid me about: Speaking too softly and apologizing too much.
Favorite films: Junebug, Lost in Translation, The Descendants, The Big Chill, Anchorman, and The Help
Must-see TV: Showtime/HBO shows, cooking shows and the Sunday Morning Show on CBS
Favorite food: Pizza—Neapolitan or New Haven-style, with the slightly charred crust, and a glass of beer or wine.
Dream vacation: I love exploring cities around the world and I love the beach. Perhaps a trip to a city for a special run or race, then off to a food/cooking tour, and ending with some time on the beach.
Sports played: I’m really bad at sports so I run—I’m a marathoner.
Take on Internet dating: I’m not someone who enjoys going out on a million first dates, so I will be delighted when I am in a happy relationship and off the Internet!
Fave special-occasion spot: A fun restaurant. I also really love to cook and celebrate at home and/or cooking with friends.
Must be: Intelligent, trustworthy, dependable, fun/funny, and a friend.
Top three traits for a love match: Engaging, trustworthy, and kind.
PS: I’m open to trying and learning new things so I’m happy to meet someone who can teach and show me new things and expand my world.
