If you were walking on the beach and a starfish washed up on shore right in front of you, you would notice it, right? Well, think of me as that starfish. I’m originally from the east coast (DC), have a life-long love of acting (even though that’s not what pays my bills), and am lucky enough to have a job that I truly love—working as a psychologist, often with kids. My friends and family say I am spunky, very funny, smart, and extremely accepting of others. I say flattery will get you everywhere. To that list I would add adventurous, kind, and playful. I love acting and the theatre, music, movies, dancing, the beach, traveling, reading, and hanging out with my friends. I love ethnic food of all types but will never pass up a good piece of pizza. I would like to find someone who is kind, considerate, and thoughtful of others. I value a good sense of humor and someone who can make me laugh. I am looking for a guy who is smart and motivated, honest, and articulate. Physical attraction is a key part of a relationship in my view and I want to be with someone who makes my heart beat just a little faster when I'm with him. I think open communication is really important and my special someone will have to be comfortable expressing how he feels and what he thinks. I'd also like to find someone who is close with his family and who understands emotional intelligence. I'm not looking for Mr. Perfect. I'm looking for someone who I enjoy spending time with whatever we do, who I can easily talk to, and with whom I can share life's moments--both large and small. I know the man for me is out there somewhere. Is it you?
I've just noticed the new okCupid feature where they assign you personality traits based on other aspects of your profile, some of which they deem positive, and others negative. I am somehow wholesome while sex-driven, and spiritual but aggressive. What?
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to get off this site.
I’m really good at
Dancing (says me)
Sleeping late (I've had this skill my entire life)
Calculating the tip
Being a goofball
Apparently I need to think about this more. This is a very odd
The first things people usually notice about me
Hmm. How about you tell me? :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm really terrible at making lists of favorites. Somehow my brain doesn't work this way. So here goes. For movies, I would say Good Will Hunting, Shawshank Redemption, The Manchurian Candidate (original of course), Dirty Dancing, Strictly Ballroom, A Shot in the Dark, Muriel's Wedding. And yes, I have seen a movie more recently than 15 years ago, but apparently I can't think of any. I also LOVE Fred and Ginger films (or Fred and anyone films, actually). Okay also Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Wes Anderson movies, and if I think about it I'll come up with others. Like Lars and the Real Girl. And The Intouchables. Okay I'm stopping now.
On TV I like Mad Men, Glee, Daily Show, The Colbert Report (I guess now I used to like this), So You Think You Can Dance (NOT Dancing with the Stars)
Favorite music is anything with a good beat that you can dance to. I like lots of other stuff too, but especially hip hop, R&B. After writing the above I've realized I really like music based on how it makes me feel, more so than the lyrics. And I'm adding groups like Maroon 5, Coldplay, and U2 to my list.
Okay I read other profiles and realize there's lots of other movies and music that I like, spanning multiple decades. I'm not writing them all but you can feel free to ask if this is important to you.
I read a lot.
The six things I could never do without
I guess there's just one.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why people who drive really big cars can't ever seem to park them.
On a typical Friday night I am
It depends. Sometimes I go out with friends and sometimes I am
simply recovering from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I think I could eat pizza every day and not get sick of it.
You should message me if
You liked my profile. Keep in mind that the age limits I've posted are generalities of what I imagine I'm interested in. While I don't see myself dating a 60 year old man, if you are older or younger than the ages I've listed and want to say hi, please do.
I actually respond to pretty much everyone who writes a real email. However, if your email just says "hi," I usually don't. I get a lot of people just saying "hi."
