My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an East Coast girl who moved down here six years ago and fell in love with D.C. -- which to date makes it my longest attempt at a relationship. Hmmm... While the city can be stifling at times -- nothing a good weekend trip home can't cure -- I can't imagine being anywhere else.

I have a tendency to say what's on my mind and may be overly honest at times (but in an endearing way, or so I'd like to believe). Friends are important to me, and I find quality far more important than quantity (which I think holds true for most things in life). My friends would describe me as sincere, fun, loyal, and definitely a little quirky.

I think you've got to live life responsibly, but know when to take a leap of faith. I'm always up for an adventure and can’t imagine living life by a routine. I’m looking for someone who feels similarly. Someone who is curious and seeks out new experiences. On the same token, I think every day life can be pretty adventurous, if you have the right perspective.

I value social and emotional intelligence as much as academic intelligence (and think it's harder to find in D.C.). I believe communication, honesty, trust, and respect fuel a good relationship - however, mutual attraction definitely helps the situation along quite a bit.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning life's lessons one at a time (and sometimes maybe not as graciously as I would like to admit).

On the work front I spend my days doing project management for a Fortune 500 and my evenings and weekends moonlighting as a yoga instructor and running my small business.

While I'm busy, I make time for the people and things in my life that are important to me.
I’m really good at

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Animal Farm, Middlesex, The Time Traveler's Wife, Fast Food Nation, Nothing to Envy: Ordinary Lives in North Korea, The Casual Vacancy.

In terms of music I tend to like songs versus artists, but give me a soulful singer/songwriter or a good dance beat and I'm happy. Some favorites: The Decemberists, James Morrison, Paolo Nutini, Lorde, Beyonce (yes... I like top 40 -- deal with it), Billy Joel, Nat King Cole, Regina Spector, Fun.

Movies: The Little Mermaid (when I was 5), Pan's Labyrinth, Last King of Scotland, Love Actually, Role Models, Scent of a Woman, The Spanish Apartment, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Black Hawk Down, Goodbye Lenin, The Debt, One Day, Two Days in Paris.

T.V.: Shark Tank, The Good Wife, Newsroom, VEEP, New Girl, The Mindy Project, The Pacific, Modern Family, HoC, GoT. Yes, I like t.v. -- shoot me!

Food: I like juicing (as in veg, not steroids). Favorite cuisines include Mediterranean (Eastern and Western), Indian, and Thai; ravioli with interesting fillings; anything with basil (including ice cream!); good red wine; and every once in a while a nice medium-rare fillet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
....assuming the essentials are covered (oxygen, gravity, water, DVR, etc.), in no particular order:

Close Friends
Yoga
Art/Beauty
Internet
Green Space/Nature
Lattes
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely taking a yoga class, cooking dinner, and calling it a night in with my DVR... on occasion, meeting up with friends over good food and drink...once in a blue moon, dancing the night away somewhere fun.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My mom is a really particular (i.e. meat and potatoes) eater and I was not introduced to a whole lot of "exotic" food growing up. I didn't know what a bagel was until I was in 6th grade (when we got them in the school cafeteria)! Furthermore, I never had Chinese food until I was 18 (let alone Thai or Indian, which came much later).

Ever since, I've been making up for lost time!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You realize, "The most private thing you're willing to admit," is meant to be playful. After all it's what you're WILLING to admit.

I don't feel like my profile or pictures reflect some of the messages I've received, but just to clarify:

1. No, I will not date you unhappily married man (I don't care how smart or good looking or wealthy you are); you're kind of a dirt bag. Be a real man and go get divorced before you start dipping your pen in other ink wells.

2. I've never read 50 Shades of Grey -- I hear it might win a National Book Award. (Reminder: put on must read list.) But, no, I am not interested in becoming the 3rd party returning guest star in you and your boyfriend's clearly healthy, committed, and monogamous relationship. Thank you but I'll pass, even if you are "normal" in your "everyday life", "very discrete", and "have 4 master's degrees between the 2" of you. I'm sorry, did you think this was a job interview?

3. As enticing as the offer sounds bare-chested (nice abs, I'll give you) and headless OKC profile user, I am not into being your monogamous, yet uncommitted, f*ck buddy. Don't get me wrong, I do appreciate the candor in knowing where you are in life and what you're looking for; if only others were as honest, we'd all save ourselves a little heart ache. And I appreciate that you want to keep it clean and only dip your pen in one ink well at a time. Again, admirable...I think?! So while I appreciate the compliment that I tick both boxes for you (smart and attractive - because you have to have both in a simple FB, of course), I think I'll wait for a guy that might, as least one day, in the future want to offer me the possibility of commitment. Call me crazy!

Oh, OKCupid...you never cease to amaze and amuse me with your charms. :-)
