Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Smart, independent, confident, caring. Add to that articulate,
self-aware, thoughtful, someone who is comfortable with herself.
Sprinkle that with a real curiosity for life, desire to do the
right thing, hope for the right life partner to explore the
I am a pretty simple person. I like cooking, reading, listening (as
well as playing, singing) music, hiking and sometimes doing
nothing. But at the end of the day, the person/people I spend time
with is much more important than what I am doing.
I'm looking for someone wonderful to explore the world and life
with me. What wonderful means to me is a man who is intelligent and
comfortable in his own skin. Someone who is self-aware and who
enjoys the simple things in life--time with friends, a silly movie,
or just people watching at a cafe. Someone who is articulate and
expressive, able to communicate both his thoughts as well as his
feelings. But most importantly, I'm looking for someone with a big
heart and with whom I have a real connection.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spent too long focusing on work and now I want to focus on the
'other part' of my life. I recently left a too-demanding job (many
hours, too much travel) to have better control over my life. I
think I now have more time as well as emotional, mental space in my
life to welcome my life partner. I'm looking for someone wonderful
to explore the world and life with me. While I wasn't before, I am
now ready to prioritize a relationship in my life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Analyzing things (that's what I do for a living), I admit I
sometimes can't stop. ;) Listening and communicating my
thoughts/feelings. Finding random things in life amusing, I
sometimes would just randomly laugh while day dreaming and insert a
skip to my walk just because I feel like it. Asking *good*
questions. Knowing myself...I actually feel that I continue to
learn about myself and it's pretty fascinating.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is a guess, but that I am curious and articulate. I ask
questions because I will want to get to know you. I've been told
that I can seem hard to approach, but I think this is not good so I
have been trying to be better and be more approachable.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Italian, Mexican, Korean food, chocolate/dessert;
Clueless, Friends, Entourage, Madmen;
Broadway musicals, the symphony and other live music;
Anna Karenina, Emma among the classics, I like non-fictions on
current events, world issues, business
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
dark chocolate, tech news, mp3 player (music is an important part
of my life), onions (I would add it to almost every recipe
regardless of whether it asks for it), television, public
transportation, brunch (I can have eggs and pancakes any time of
the week or day), eyelash curler (they are pretty long, but not
very curvy!); laptop/phone (but I'm not happy about it!);
ironically coffee is not on this list
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The "why"s of the world: From motivations of my own behavior to why
people do certain things, how things/machines work, and why we are
here. It ranges from the mundane/fun to the philosophical and
I also spend a lot of time thinking about the future. Wouldn't life
be boring if we knew exactly what the future will bring? ;)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no 'typical.' I'm sometimes out with friends, for a good
meal and just hanging out. I sometimes like to enjoy live music or
theater. Sometimes I choose to veg out on the couch chatting or
playing board games with good friends. Sometimes I make dinner and
catch up on TV/movies - I can be a total home-body and am proud of
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

* A secret dream of mine is to sing in an a cappella group, which
unfortunately requires skillful singing. Maybe in another
* I actually cry simply listening to a piece of music. If I were an
actress, crying on cue would be no problem.
