I Joined Match.com!!!

You may have heard by now that after thinking about doing so for quite a while, I took the plunge and joined Match.com.  It all transpired during an interview with Matt Lauer on The Today Show when he asked me about my dating life.  I then appeared last week on The Today Show with Matt, online dating expert Dan Slater (author of Love in the Time of Algorithms), and Sam Yagan CEO of Match Inc. and talked about my dating profile.  And on today's Today Show, you can see me create my profile.

My Profile -

You may recognize me from my pictures. Yes, it's really me.

I’ve been curious about online dating for a long time, but, like lots of people, have been reluctant to take the leap. I’m just now getting around to it for a couple reasons. After recently writing and publishing my new book, “Living the Good Long Life,” I was reminded how central good relationships are to happiness and longevity. Also, I’ve always been a big believer that technology, if used well, can enhance one’s life. So here I am, looking to enhance my dating life.

Here’s how I’d define myself: Curious about everything. Love learning. An adventurous spirit.

I’m told that I’m a specific person, and that the efficiency of online dating might be a good way for me to find that needle in the haystack. So while I’m open to all kinds of people, and love to be surprised, here’s what I know I appreciate in a man: Someone who’s intelligent, established, and curious; and who relishes adventure and new experiences as much as I do.  Someone who can teach me new things. A lover of animals, grandchildren, and the outdoors. Young at heart.

Please send me a message if you fit the bill. I travel frequently, so geography is but a detail.
