Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am new(ish) to Orlando and looking to expand my circle of
friends, as well as find someone to date. I have come to the
realization that i have lost the ability to meet people now that I
am not in school and now that all of my co-workers are
significantly older than me. :)
I would most definitely describe myself as a dorky person. I am
probably your exact definition of the stereotypical young English
professor. I wear too much plaid, argyle, and corduroy. Then I geek
out over poetry, writing, and film on a daily basis while my
students are probably rolling their eyes at my excitement.
I like to stay active, either with my body or my mind. Exploring
parks, farmer markets, and different restaurants and bars are
favorite pastimes of mine. However, I can also, and am perfectly
content, be a homebody (aka hermit) who experiments with cooking
new recipes, having adventurous cocktail nights, reading, and
watching movies/marathoning TV shows.
Things that I enjoy doing (and would most likely enjoy doing with
--Finding the perfect whiskey sour
--...but really just settling for a pitcher of PBR or Rainer (does
that even exist in Florida?!).
--Exploring used book stores.
--Cooking and experimenting with new recipes.
--Games of any sort: board games, video games (no shooting or
sports games though), and card games.
--Going to the Zoo/Aquarium.
--Witty banter and sarcasm.
--TV show marathoning.
--Watching what will most likely be terrible B sci-fi/fantasy
--And the list goes on...just ask!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm originally from Florida, but I've been living in Seattle for
the past 5 years. I love the constant overcast skies, continual
mist, and mountains of the Pacific Northwest, but I moved back to
Florida in the summer for an amazing teaching job I managed to
So, that is what I am doing with my life--I'm an English teacher at
a community college. I couldn't imagine doing anything else as a
career. I love it.
Also, other fun things like adventuring, exploring, eating tasty
foods, and watching horrible (and not so terrible) movies.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
drinking too much coffee.
The first things people usually notice about me

The curly hair. Its like really curly. Seriously. Its so curly that
I haven't owned a comb in 10+ years.
Then probably the tattoos.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Oh god...I have a masters degree in English lit, so the books would
take forever. Let's discuss that over coffee or drinks.
As for movies and shows, I am into things like 30 Rock (I'm kind of
in love with Liz Lemon), Parks and Rec, Community, The NewsRoom,
Girls, Game of Thrones Better off Ted, Arrested Development, and
things of that sort. Basically, I enjoy my shows to have silly, yet
relevant and somewhat clever humor to them. Guilty pleasures that
aren't so guilty: True Blood, How I Met Your Mother, Chopped, and
Grey's Anatomy (yep.).
I grew up with a strong love for punk and ska. While I don't listen
to that genre quite as much these days, it has a special place in
my heart and I always enjoy it. Right now, I listen to a lot more
indie bands, folk, and instrumental-type bands. My current pandora
stations are The Lumineers, Dustin O'Hollaran, Murder by Death, The
Mars Volta, Explosions in the Sky, and Bon Iver.
The six things I could never do without

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I once sleepwalked from my hotel room in Atlanta, and I woke up in
the middle of downtown Atlanta wearing only my underwear. I usually
don't sleepwalk anymore.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
While I do like to go out (bars where you can talk, play pool, dive
bars--No clubs or assorted places like that), I enjoy staying in
and movie marathoning (if that is a word...) much more. An ideal
girl would be perfectly content watching movies, cuddled up on the
couch on a regular basis. I am looking for someone who is doing
something with her life. If you're 25 or 26 and still partying and
have no education, then that is great for you and I'm sure there
are a ton of people out there who will appreciate that kind of
lifestyle. However, you are not for me. Also, if you're religious,
it probably won't work out, but we can certainly be friends! I
always am on the outlook for new friends.
I am looking for someone who has a career (or is actively pursuing
it or attending graduate school for said career), doesn't need to
be supported, and has her life (somewhat) put together. While I am
looking for someone to eventually become serious with, I am in no
rush to immediately settle down, but being in similar life-stages
is important to me. I'd like to be able to travel and do things
with my partner without money being the(major) thing holding us
