Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, lets see. I'm 28, I'm a graduate student completing my MSW,
and I work in the child welfare field. I have a daughter who is the
light of my life, and we are absolutely a package deal. I'm a
passionate person in both belief and action, and I don't do well
with intolerance or injustice of any sort. I truly believe in our
inherent responsibility to love, protect, and accept each other as
human beings, regardless of our differences, and I try my best to
fulfill this responsibility. I'm an idealist and a dreamer to the
core and not ashamed of it!
I'm also a spiritual person, and am always looking for ways to
integrate spirituality further into my life. I practice meditation
and am a Reiki Master/Teacher. I would love to find someone to
share this with as well - energy work and play can be incredible
with the right partner!
On the less philosophical side of things - I like to garden,
explore new paths in the woods, listen to audiobooks, write, draw,
and occasionally indulge in a Netflix binge. I like funny movies
and ice cream sundaes and autumn. I can't stand doing dishes or the
taste of guacamole.
I'm at a point in my life where I've outgrown the clubs and bars
and loud concerts for the most part, and prefer quiet places and
conversation. Also, coffee. I have a deep and abiding love for
It shouldn't have to be noted, but I will as this is an online
setting - I am a plus sized woman. I'm healthy, happy in my body,
and have no qualms about the body types of others. I'd prefer to
connect with those who have similar feelings on the subject :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finishing college right now is the big one! I'm really committed to
finishing school (5 more months!), and it takes up a good deal of
My work is challenging and wonderful.
I'm also a parent - a big and fantastic job.
Other than that, I try to take walks and be outside whenever I can,
and try to carve out some "me" time when I can to just relax.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Working with children. Consuming what for other people would be
toxic amounts of caffeine. Crock pot cooking. Problem solving.
Debating. Snuggling :)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my eyes. Or the adorable kid perpetually on my hip :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: the Mossflower series, Harry Potter, cheesy J.D. Robb
romance/mystery novels, Eckhart Tolle, Rudy Ballentine, older
Movies: I'm a huge Adam Sandler fan. I don't think a person can
watch Billy Madison or Mr. Deeds too many times. I also like a good
documentary now and again.
Shows: I don't have cable, so nothing new usually. I watch the
Daily Show religiously, and trying to keep up with New Girl and a
few other funny/sitcom type shows.
Music: Michael Franti, Trevor Hall, Dave Matthews, Strangefolk,
Rolling Stones...it really depends on my mood!
Food: Comfort food, Japanese, Indian. I'm a mostly-vegetarian and
make a mean stir fry.
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.

Doing homework, with my daughter, asleep, out with friends...it
