Ok, so thatâ€™s the Twitterized bio, which, I must admit, is pretty spot on. I mean, I could write you a book, but who wants to read all that?
Iâ€™m a 38 year old California native, spending the majority of my life in Southern California, except the years I attended UC Berkeley (Go Bears!) in Northern California. My career has been focused in marketing and the non-profit sector. Now, after years of working for other people to make them lots of money, I am now building my own marketing and event production company. Iâ€™ve been divorced for a while now and I have two amazing boys who keep me young and laughing. I have a pretty large extended family as well.
I love travel and exploring, even if itâ€™s just a day trip to the mountains or the local museum. I love cooking and entertaining and hold the title of resident party planner for the family. I can definitely be a â€œgirly girlâ€ (my favorite color is pink after all), but Iâ€™m no wimp and can hang with the big boys too. I try to stay active by going to the gym a few days a week and recently completed my first 5k race. I am looking for a 10k to run in the near future, so its back to training for me! I am a sports junkie and my favorite pro sports team in the Dodgers. I love attending sporting events and concerts. My favorite band is the Foo Fighters, and while I love all types of music, I tend to lean more towards rock music. I read quite a bit (I think this comes from my dad working in a library when I was a child!) and recently donated several hundred books to a literacy non-profit because I was running out of room for them!
I think I am a social person, but tend to come off as shy when people first meet me. As much as I like being out and about, I also enjoy spending time at home with family, friends and loved ones.
What am I looking for? Good question! Iâ€™d have to say Iâ€™m looking to start a good, solid friendship. I mean, thatâ€™s a good basis for most relationships, right? As much as I love my life and have great friends and family, it would be nice to share lifeâ€™s great moments with a partner. I think I mesh well with someone intelligent, witty, down-to-earth, caring, kind and who has a great sense of humor. In terms of demeanor, please, please, please no wimpy men! This doesnâ€™t mean be a domineering jerk, but it means donâ€™t be afraid to take the lead either. I often see guys and I just want to yell â€œMan up, dude!â€ LOL Physically, I donâ€™t know that I have a â€œtypeâ€, but I generally like someone taller than me (which isnâ€™t hard considering Iâ€™m only 5â€™7â€) and someone who likes to be active. I definitely appreciate a great smile, too!
