Hi everyone! My name is Sandy and I have been chosen to be your new Community Leader. A little about me:

I have been an iVillage member since 2000. I am 51 years old and live in California. I frequent many boards and have experience in the Online Dating arena. I began my online dating journey in 2000 and have had semi success. I am not a black and white person and LOVE to live in the gray area. I believe that every person that comes into our lives have something to contribute good or bad and I am open minded (to a fault) in meeting men. I am currently single and unemployed due to my layoff from a large national bank that merged with another large national bank *wink wink* and I have some health issues that excludes many jobs out there so I have joined a gym...hired a trainer...and trying to be the best I can be. Right now the anxiety is high and I am not in the position to be dating right now (plus I just broke up with someone after 4 years...yes an online born relationship) so my search for Mr Right is put on hold. Trust me that won't stop me from offering up advice from my too many years of online dating experience.

Over all with all the changes and uncertain future I find this is the best time of my life. I am excited about the opportunity to lead this board.

I welcome any questions and I can't wait to get started!!

I can sympathize indirectly w/ your work situation. My best friend got laid off by one of those large national banks after 27 yrs there--she was an executive in the HR area. Luckily they did give her a good severance package. She got a job after about 6 mos. w/ another company but it was a long commute & didn't work out. But now she's w/ another very large bank doing similar work & really happy w/ it.
