I haven't been an active JDate subscriber in a long time, but have recently decided to jump back in. My life has changed in the last few years, but a lot of my profile hasn't. I am still kind, warm, smart, funny, serious, goofy, curious, sensitive, loyal, nurturing, open-minded, unpretentious, and active (at least on occasion). I enjoy (not in any order): sharing a good meal; engaging in outdoors activities; going to the movies; hanging out; having interesting conversations; listening to NPR; reading the New Yorker or the Sunday Times; etc. I like cats well enough, but I am definitely a dog person. I've lived in Palo Alto for about 15 years, and consider it to be home.
