It is currently Friday night, Sept.,12th, and I’m preparing to head up to Tahoe to sing at a Match.com wedding. The bride is an old friend from high school, and she has re-written the lyrics to Taylor Swift’s “Love Story.” She delivered to me, a long rambling several pages of “lyrics.” I spent the next few weeks slashing through words with a blade, attempting to sculpt metered poetry out of a blob of letters, while still preserving the integrity of her intended message to her groom.
Upon reviewing my work, the bride was thrilled. Oy vey. But GREAT! I couldn’t ask for more. I will put on my showman’s hat. I will go--- and I will sing --- with a smile--- and hope to GOD the captive audience finds it amusing. I will sing the rhyme, “Heart” and “arm fart”, like it was a seamless love song. Lord have mercy on my soul. ((hangs head in shame))
I am here to find MY match. I want a relationship.I want a husband.And yes, I want my own child. I am here because the proof is above. It works! I am determined to close this chapter in my life. It’s officially time to move on from this place. And if I’ve emailed you, it’s because something you’ve written has resonated with me… that, and I think you’re pretty. ;-) Dearest Charming… please rescue me so that I can write a better song!!!
Who am I?
~ I’m called kind and patient by others. I default to taking the high road. I’m a good person, and dogs & toddlers, the higher authorities, concur. (Did I mention I'm modest?)
~I am nice.Yup.But I’m sarcastic as all get-out. I’m often called cheeky, and Britts love me. They never expect it to come out of my mouth. I think it’s the blonde halo that throws them off. ;-)
~I sang before I could speak.I continue to sing, have a substantial past in musical theatre, song-write on occasion, and dabble in voice over...love love love recording.
~To that end,I’ve been studying Music Technology/Engineering for a few years, learning to record, edit, & mix music or digital recordings,and loving every last minute of it.The Recording studio is my happy place.
~I’ve got an off-center sense of humor and would rather find the humor in things.It’s funny ‘cuz it’s true. I find humor to be a HUGE bonding point.
~I’ve been a Realtor for over a decade. Before that, I taught math in Jr.High, and directed a Chorus. I just hung up my hat as Choir Director after 15 years. I don’t teach anymore, but it’s still a large part of who I am as a person.
~ I love the outdoors, but I was not blessed with natural athleticism. I am not athletic.I will not pretend to be athletic.If you are athletic,fantastic.I will never keep you from doing what you love. You can find me in a Bikram studio 1-2 times a week, and I'm friends with my elliptical machine. And I’ll take a short (5 miles) hike any time. I just won’t be going on that 30 mile hike, nor will I be scaling a mountain with you.It will only make us both miserable. But I’ll always cheer you on.
~ I am a blonde haired blue eyed blindingly pale Greek. All 4 grandparent landed in San Francisco. My parents have been married over 50 years. And here I am 2 generations later, a Bay Area Native. That said, I am steeped in tradition and have an appreciation for families with cultural heritage... and still very very American. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" only gets funnier as time passes, and with more Greek American women watching it together in the same room. We laugh because we love our heritage... and it's funny 'cuz it's true!
~I am not 420 friendly. Sorry. I’m not against pot… I just don’t want it in my life. I truly Truly hate the smell. Truly. Blecxh.
It is important to me that you are as grounded as I am. Don’t get me wrong… I can be as goofy as they come… I do have a background in musical theatre after all… that doesn’t just go away. But I know how to be an adult, and how to be stable and responsible. I’m just looking for someone who’s come as far as I have and knows what he wants in life. Educated, employed, and I cannot stress AGE APPROPRIATE enough. He’s ready for a monogamous relationship and a family, and he’s ready to make it happen, hopefully, with me! Let’s meet sooner rather than later, shall we?
I am soooo bad at planning dates... I come from a long line of micromanagers... so I'd just assume leave the planning to someone else. Therefore I humbly leave that in your hands. I'd like to stay away from extreme sports on the first date, but ya know... I'm pretty open to suggestions.
