I'm very new to the world of online dating, and I suppose I share the usual reticence about jumping into this brave new world, but I am taking the plunge because I'm ready for some new energy in my life. Most of my life happens in a 3-square mile radius between work, home, kids, etc, so this is my virtual way of getting out there.
In preparation for this step, I asked my best friends how they would describe me and they said, "funny, intelligent, not crazy." I'd probably add a bit to that description by saying that I'm pretty open minded and flexible about most things. I think I'm pretty easy going and adventurous.
My spare time is devoted to reading, walking, hanging out with my kids and friends and staying active: running, walking, and even skiing when I can get away for the day. I love to be outside and prefer it to the gym in almost any weather condition.
