Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
These days, I prefer a nice late dinner rather than loud music at a
I (successfully) quit smoking over a year ago and, no, I did not
jump on the Vape bandwagon. Along this path, I've started getting
active and taking care of myself again. While the transition back
to a healthier self hasn't been an easy one, it's becoming
something I can't live without. It'd be nice to meet someone who is
striving for the same (or encourages me to do so). With that being
said, it doesn't mean I can't enjoy my mom's cooking (and other
yummy yummy fried goodness occasionally).
Now that I no longer smoke, I enjoy boxing classes and Bikram yoga
to unwind and de-stress. These have changed my life.
I tend to gravitate towards people who laugh often and smile big.
It's contagious and good for the soul.
My batting song would probably be....... I'm not sure. This song
choice would probably change pretty frequently though. It would
switch between songs that are borderline diva-ish or those that
would be played at Bench and Bar (bonus points if you know what
I want to see the world (who doesn't?). I've traveled some, but
have barely scratched the surface on places I'd love to
Basically, I'd like to meet someone that I can share all the good
and bad with. That's what it's all about, isn't it?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in healthcare (specifically, long term care-mainly working
with the elderly). And yes, I really do love old people.
I'm also trying something outside of my day job that I hope will
eventually become a full-time thing... Regardless if it works or
not, I absolutely love it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at making up my own words that only a select few of my
friends can understand. I'm also good at taking names with two or
more syllables and shortening them to one then adding an "S" at the
Also, does over-ordering or cooking too much count? I think this
might be the result of my upbringing. We were always afraid there
wasn't going to be enough food for everyone or, God forbid, someone
might still be hungry. I have yet to learn how to cook for one...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My perpetual tan? (True story: a nurse at work came up to me,
rubbed my arm, then asked me if my skin was real)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have two disclaimers:
1) I love music (who doesn't? That's like saying you don't like
puppies and babies); but I am horrible at remembering names and
songs. Pandora is my music lifeline.
2) I love watching movies (in the theater, on the couch, in my
bed). But I will NEVER watch a scary movie, so please don't
Food: As much as I love food and trying different cuisines, my
mom's cooking will always be #1. (I don't like the term "Foodie."
It implies that I take food seriously, which I don't. If you're
fortunate enough to be in a position to enjoy it, food experiences
should always be fun and lighthearted.)
Shows: Breaking Bad, Orange is the New Black, Sherlock, House of
Cards, Luther, Family Guy, Cleveland Show (earlier episodes), Sons
of Anarchy, Bob's Burgers..... (Basically anything available on
Hulu and Netflix).
Books: I love to read.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order (I'm not going to include water, air, family
and friends-those are givens):
1) Lip balm
2) Chai Tea (with milk and sugar-not a chai tea latte)
3) Occasional slow mornings (that sometimes turn into lazy
4) Tessa, my English Bullie...
5) Good food and wine
6) A full night of sleep
Not too long ago, an iPhone would have made it on this list. After
losing it on day 1 of a month long trip in Asia a little while
back, I discovered I could survive without one. Gasp!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Opening a food truck. And having to do my laundry.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Whether at home or out and about, it usually involves a really good
meal and a nice glass (or two) of wine... Or maybe a really good
old fashioned, even if I have no clue what goes in them...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've decided to give on-line dating a try. Please don't tell
anyone. It's a very big secret.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You should message me if you're just super awesome; but if you have
a shirtless picture (with the exception of those on the beach or on
vacation) of yourself taken in front of a bathroom or bedroom
mirror, we probably won't get along.
Recently single/divorced need not apply... I just think it takes
time to heal... And jumping back into the dating scene isn't the
best way to handle that.
By the way, you have to like dogs. Tessa will pretty much like you
