Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, hello there! Thanks for stopping by! I am an outgoing,
grounded person who respects and values integrity, responsibility
and honesty, but also remembers to relax and enjoy life and make
time for things that matter; sort of "responsibly spontaneous," if
you will. I make my best effort at being considerate of others and
respect people who do the same. I love to laugh and joke--in fact,
a lot of my humor has its roots in Seinfeld-style banter, and I
definitely value a good sense of humor, but also know when it's
time to be serious and appreciate the ability to be genuine,
honest, but tactful (even if it's not easy--don't ask if you don't
want an answer), and look at a situation rationally from all
angles, and communicate well.
I love being outdoors and am finding that I have an increasingly
difficult time being in an office all day. I like a good run, walk,
or hike, and enjoy things like kayaking and standup paddle
boarding, though I'm rather terrible at competitive team sports. I
value a good command of the language and the ability to articulate.
I adore animals and am a huge advocate of and passionate about
animal welfare (I'm not a vegetarian, I'm just very upset by animal
cruelty), and I ADORE music and live theater/musicals.
I play the piano, love harmony, and make my best attempts at
singing and composing music. I love to perform, and for a while
wanted to be an actress, but I got tired of the constant financial
struggle and difficult lifestyle that career path can sometimes
bring, so I (somewhat) regrettably gave it up and have been trying
to find the right fit of a "real" job ever since. I am educated but
haven't really been happy with my career path, so, I'm actively
working to figure out my exact career path soon--I'm close!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Since I'm discovering I'm not at all satisfied with the educational
and career path I chose, I am currently in the proces of trying to
make a change. I am considering grad school, and am toying with the
idea of making a move, since I don't have anything really tying me
down here at the moment. But, if I should find something worth
staying here for, then I will. So, what I am doing is working
toward career and life fulfillment, while doing the best I can to
contribute positively to causes I care about and those around me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Expressing myself/communicating diplomatically
Playing the piano/music theory/composition
Being considerate of others
Playing with animals

Music: I love country music! I really enjoy other types too though;
generally I'll enjoy a lot of the top 40, I enjoy soft rock type
things, and love a capella harmony arrangements. I pretty like most
things with a strong melody/instrumentation, but I definitely also
enjoy fun songs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm usually so exhausted from work on Fridays that I'm excited to
just be able to relax for once!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is all that comes to mind at the moment (probably because I'm
doing it as I write this): Sometimes I'll sit in my room before I
go to bed listening to large-scale orchestral scores of powerful
epic-movie style themes, or other powerful songs of that nature,
and get really into it, and pretend I'm the conductor, waving my
arms around "conducting" the orchestra, queuing in the various
instruments and choral singers. Somehow I find this to be extremely

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we'd be a good match and are willing to meet rather that
just email back and forth and/or text all day long. If there's a
mutual interest beyond the initial message or two, I like to
actually speak on the phone to determine if we click rather than
play pen pals forever--and then subsequently meet if the phone
conversation goes well, because you really don't know until you
meet. Texting has its place, but not for the initial
"get-to-know-you" chat; too impersonal. This way, if we're a match,
we know sooner rather than later, and if not, we know that too and
don't waste our time.
