If you’re looking for a smart, funny woman who has a lot to offer,
you’re reading the right profile. I’m an introvert and shy at first
but I warm up quickly, especially if there’s a mutual attraction.
I’m college-educated and professionally employed. I have a sick
sense of humor, I like taking photographs and posting them online,
and I enjoy intellectually stimulating conversations over sushi,
pasta, brunch, etc. Plus, I’m game for day trips to the mountains
or beach, as well hikes on trails that aren't too steep. (Fear of
heights, yo.) And if you’re a fellow bookworm, chances are I’ll
I’m looking for someone who’s caring, loyal, funny, employed, and
has their life in order. It would be great if you were a liberal,
non-religious, and into the arts (books, music, photography, etc.).
Shared interests are a must, obviously, and I would prefer to meet
someone who doesn’t have kids and doesn't want them.
What I’m doing with my life
I work as a paralegal/legal assistant. Previously I worked as a
writer and editor.
I've been living near downtown PDX for several years with my two
cats. I recently renewed my green card and I am originally from
Canada. I think I say "aboot" but I almost never say "eh."
I’m really good at
reading two or three books at once, making people laugh, and
(occasionally) taking pictures. I've taken some great pictures,
some just good, and some awful, and it's something I'm continuing
to work on. I'd like to become really good at it.
The first things people usually notice about me
My owl tattoo. I get a lot of compliments on it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV: I'm a longtime fan of South Park and Mad Men. (I've seen every
episode of both series.) I also enjoy Bates Motel and American
Movies: I'm a sucker for intelligent dramas, foreign flicks, horror
movies, and period pieces. Alfred Hitchcock is my favorite
Music: I love hard rock and dance music, i.e. Rush, Goldfrapp,
Little Boots, AC/DC, Rob Zombie... I could go on. I also a big fan
of stand-up comedy. Some of my favorite comedians are Doug
Stanhope, Matt Braunger, and Kyle Kinane.
Books: Too many to list here. Some of my favorite authors are
Chelsea Cain, Stewart O'Nan, Stephen King, Cheryl Strayed, and Tom
Perrotta. (King's "Revival" is a great read.) I love memoirs, some
literary fiction, most non-fiction, thrillers, and true crime. I
have a Kindle and use it for most of my reading, but paper books
still hold a special place in my heart.
Food: Pasta, sushi, tiramisu, oysters... I eat at Pastini and Mio
Sushi fairly frequently. Also, I love going out for brunch. (Hello,
The six things I could never do without
Something to read, my camera, my iPhone, a purring cat (or two), a
good Internet connection, and rock and roll. \m/
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what book I should read next, am I reaching my full potential, etc.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably hanging out at one of my haunts in my neighborhood or just
chillin' at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am not interested in polyamory or open relationships.
You should message me if
Duh. Of course you should message me.
