Why did you join Friends First Social Group?

I belong to another meet up group and thought I would branch out a bit geographically. Since I work in Palatine, this seemed like a logical move. I also really liked the name and description of the group. You can never have too many friends.

What is your status? Chose One: Single-never married, Seperated/Divorcing, Single-Divorced, Widowed, Commited Couple, Married

I am divorced (annulled).

How would you describe your personality type? Choose from: FUN, Extrovert, Never Met A Stranger, Somewhere In The Middle, Quiet, Shy, Introvert, Laid Back, Wild and Crazy.

My Myers-Briggs quotient lists me as an EFSJ for anyone who has every taken this personality assessment. I am an extrovert, feeling, sensing, and judging. The definitions aren't what you might think. I am actually an introvert as well as an extrovert. I have learned to find my alone time to regenerate. I love being with people, talking, learning about them. I communicate with most everyone and like to think I am friendly. My friends would say I have an outgoing personality. I enjoy a good conversation and finding out what people think and feel. Am willing to try new things - at least once.

So what do you think that your biggest personality asset is?

My ability to communicate with just about everyone and make them feel comfortable.

What do you enjoy doing the most in life ? Hobbies? Work? Tell us!

I enjoy working with people and helping them achieve their best selves. I like making people feel good about themselves and comfortable in awkward situations. I love to walk, bike, work out, and commune with nature. My goal is to hike in the mountains. I love the city, and enjoy being around the lake. I like night life, plays, concerts, jazz music, and the company of good friends.


I am a single mother of two sons and live in the Northwest suburbs. I am a Communications Professor and have been teaching higher education for 26 years. I have been on my own now going on 10 years. Looking to meet some new and interesting friends.
