Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been called an old-soul (though my body is starting to catch
up to my soul's age, I guess).
I'd love to find somebody who would love a dinner out, maybe
meeting some friends after for a drink or two, and then home. I'm
not a person who loves partying all night these days. I'm happiest
and most comfortable in a more intimate, quiet setting where I can
actually talk to those I'm spending time with.
One of my old roommates often comments that I'm ready to settle
down and become a house-husband. In some ways I absolutely agree
with her. I'm very happy in the kitchen and have a lot of trouble
just cooking for one, subsequently I often either eat meals that
are far larger than I should be eating, or have several days worth
of leftovers in the fridge. If I still had cable at home Food
Network would probably be one of my most watched channels.
I'm sure there's a lot more to say here, but, like many people, I'm
never best when trying to just talk about myself without any real
guidance as to what you want to know, so I'll cut it here before I
ramble too much farther.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in theatre as a stage manager. Much of the past few years I
have been working with a children's theatre company touring the
country as well as working in NYC with them. I have also done a few
other small Off-Broadway shows. I love what I do and hope to find
somebody who can keep up with my very erratic schedule.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
random quotes and trivia. My brothers and I can have entire
conversations in quotes from The Simpsons (mainly the earlier
seasons, up to around season 10 or so) or Seinfeld. I'm a pretty
good choice to have around for trivia nights.
I have no fear when it comes to driving large vehicles in
Manhattan. So if you have to move and are afraid of driving a large
van/truck through the city I'm good to have around.
I'm pretty capable in the kitchen. My old roommate often said that
I'm training to be a housewife.

Which people are we asking about? I get a lot of comments on my
purple headphones from Starbucks baristas and people working the
cash registers at various retail outlets.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: love the Harry Potter books, also have an appreciation for
the L. Frank Baum Oz books, and the Chronicles of Narnia; I still
laugh out loud while reading David Sedaris, even though I've read
his collections multiple times.
Movies: I'm kind of all over the map. As long as the story is good
and it is keeping me entertained I'm happy.
Television: Arrested Development, Modern Family, Strangers With
Candy (Amy Sedaris is a comic genius, there must be some wonderful
family gatherings between her and her brother), Raising Hope, South
Park, classic Simpsons episodes (I have seasons 4-10 on DVD and
don't really see much need for any others, except for maybe adding
season 3 in someday), Seinfeld, and Food Network (though I no
longer have cable so only see that when I'm at my parents' or on
Music: again, kind of all over the map on this one
Food: I love to cook. My home cooking tends to stick more towards
Italian, but that has just as much to do with the fact that pasta
is cheap and extremely versatile as it does with just how much I
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family (even though they are back in Ohio they are still a
pretty big part of my life)
2. My friends (both those in NYC and those who are scattered across
3. Theatre (it's my job and my passion. At this point in my life I
can't picture myself doing anything else)
5. Entertainment (be it books, music, movies, television, or a game
night with friends)
6. Ice cream (no matter how hard I try I always have to have ice
cream in some form at least once a week, if not more)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
not a lot of time spent on this, but at the end of Evita there is a
short little speech to let the audience know that her body
disappeared for seventeen years after her death. Somebody should

If I'm working on a show then Friday night is just another work
night, as I'll either have two shows on Saturday or rehearsal.
