Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a pretty stable, together person but I see romance and dating
as an area of my life where I can afford to add a little excitement
and adventure. I'm fiercely loyal and I really enjoy deep, intense
one-on-one time but I also value my independence. I have
sophisticated taste and a goofy sense of humor. I love and crave
intellectual, cultural and artistic stimulation. I enjoy hours of
deep, fascinating conversation. I am completely unafraid to dance
sober, to sing karaoke, or to state my opinion.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a lawyer and I run the legal program at a small non-profit
organization and I run an Etsy shop on the side, sing in a Jewish a
cappella group, attend a monthly tarot reading club, was doing a
lot of yoga at one point and need to get back into it, and will
look for pretty much any excuse to spend a weekend in
Massachusetts. I watch a lot of sci-fi and like to occasionally
play some Texas Hold'Em. I also run a small monthly dinner club for
friends and am always looking for good restaurant recommendations.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making pretty things with my hands, singing, taking flattering
photos of people and buying gifts for people. Also I love clothes
and like to think I could be a pretty awesome personal shopper or

Books that are written to be read by adults, that actually have
some artistic value and some thought put into writing style, that
don't immediately pander and actually present a challenge to the
reader instead of that awful Hunger Games / Game of Thrones crap. I
rarely finish a book because they usually lose my interest. But I
seem to be able to finish Asimov. The writing isn't brilliant but
the stories are. Generally, though, I like essays and devour
in-depth news articles.
Movies that are either painfully beautiful or painfully mindless
with low hanging chuckles.
Serialized science fiction that makes me think about ethics and
comedy that has absolutely no sense thereof. Also, British and
I like music that grabs me by the balls with a strong bass line,
bluesy vocals and a good electric guitar riff.

filled with cilantro, avocado and sriracha.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Yoga pants
2. My cameras
3. The steady stream of Boston-related content in my Facebook news
4. Sriracha Sauce
5. Exquisite perfumes
6. Science Fiction
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social issues. And why the hell they ended Star Trek Nemesis like
that those bastards.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Karaoke-ing (typically Sweet Child O'Mine), wine and cheese tasting
and/or Netflix + knitting-ing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I buy underwear to avoid doing laundry and I frequently talk to
myself, often in gibberish.
Oh and I will also taste things that I know are completely
inedible. It never tastes the way I want it to. Cocoa shea body
butter I'm looking at you.

You intend to actually meet me in person after a reasonable number
of messages. I'm not interested in wasting my time chatting or
texting indefinitely and I don't really understand why so many guys
