I am a warm, compassionate person who is considered smart and funny (used to do stand-up comedy). I really enjoy writing and the English language, and have written a memoir about my close relationship with sports. Prior to that I contributed over 150 sports and feature articles to Gatehouse Media, which covers many of Boston's suburban cities and towns. I also worked in the customer service and sales fields for many years. I am currently substitute teaching English (and occasionally other subjects) at the middle and high school level in the Stoughton and Canton public school systems. I have found this experience to be interesting, challenging, and rewarding (although sometimes frustrating). I love movies, theater, politics, sports, comedy, music and good food. I am looking for a companion who shares some of my interests and can introduce me to some of hers, and someone who supports me and will get my support in return. I am at peace with my life, but having a true partner would make things that much better.
