Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a work in progress.... always learning and evolving. I am
pretty sarcastic, passionate, open-minded (sometimes too
open-minded for some people), easy-going, independent and
adventurous. I'm like the girl next door with an edge. I tend to
call things as I see them. I have a somewhat assertive personality,
so I'd like to meet someone who is also assertive who is up for the
challenge. I love live music, especially blues and the
singer/songwriter type that sometimes gets classified as folk. I
believe in giving back to the community, so I volunteer for several
organizations. I enjoy photography. I am a big fan of spell check.
I live a pretty drama-free life and my baggage fits into a cosmetic
case with room to spare (and I'd like to keep it that way).
I'm looking for someone who enjoys the same things as I do but who
has enough differences to open new worlds for me, as I would hope
to do for him. I'd like someone who has the desire and opportunity
to travel either on a weekend away or an exotic adventure afar. And
lastly, I'd like to meet someone who is open to the possibility of
exploring alternative lifestyles and breaking out of our comfort
Why I'd make a good girlfriend:
-I have my own friends/interests so I wouldn't be expecting (or
wanting) you to be with me 24/7. If you want to go to Vegas with
your friends, I'd say go for it.
-I'm not a big sports fan, but I get it. I do enjoy going to games
and will watch the Superbowl with you and have a good time (and I'm
not loyal to any teams, so I'll root for the one you like). So if
you want to spend every Sunday in the winter watching football,
that's fine with me
-Though I don't really cook (yes, that could fall under why I would
NOT make a good girlfriend), I am a pretty good baker
-I can usually be ready in under an hour (unless it includes
packing - then all bets are off)
-I'm a good planner, but I'm also spontaneous
-I won't make you go shopping with me
-I'll never ask you if these jeans make my ass look fat (but if you
are giving constructive criticism and tell me that they do, I won't
-I've been told that I'm pretty low maintenance
-I'm always open to new experiences and am adventurous
-I'll never ask you to buy me feminine hygiene products
I find the "personality" tab above interesting. Not very accurate,
but interesting all the same.
I'm told that sometimes my profile says I answer messages "very
selectively." This is mostly due to the fact that most of the
messages I get are from guys who don't meet my height requirements
and e-mail me anyway. Don't be discouraged (unless you're under

People on here say my eyes, but I don't get it. I think it's just
an opening line. They are kinda nice, but not really in the pics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
You're really interested in all of this? OK...
Books: I love to read. One of my favorite gadgets is my
Nook/Kindle/ipad and I have it with me everywhere I go. I love
books and music that resonate with me and leaves me thinking about
them long after I've finished reading or listening. I'll read
almost any genre, from history to a light chick beach read (yes, I
did read 50 Shades), but it's usually the memoirs that stick with
me. A couple books that stand out in my mind right now are Zeitoun
by Dave Eggers, The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson,
Unbroken by Laura Hillebrand, He Comes Next by Ian Kerner (I
recommend "She Comes First" for all you guys out there. There's
always something new to learn!), Shantaram by Gregory David
Music: Artists that rotate on my itunes the most are Michael
McDermott, Rob Thomas, Pete Yorn, Marc Broussard, Paloma Faith.
Blues and singer/songwriter types can stop me dead sometimes. I
also enjoy most music from the 60's, 70's, and classic rock. I love
the soundtrack to Repo Men. My musical tastes are very eclectic.
You could come into my office and hear Frank Sinatra one minute and
Kid Rock the next. Every single time a Beatles song comes up on my
itunes rotation, I'm always surprised by how amazing they
Movies: School of Rock, Pulp Fiction, Happy Feet, The Sweetest
Shows: "The Book of Mormon" is the funniest show I've ever seen.
"Hair" is a favorite." I love "Love" by Cirque de Soleil in Vegas.
Any of those, I'd see again and again.
Oh - you mean TV shows? Treme, True Blood, Late Late Show with
Craig Ferguson, Real Time with Bill Maher, Walking Dead, Bob's
Burgers, Justified, Mad Men, Drunk History. The Newsroom (best show
on TV in a very long time)
Food: I love Pig Candy and Sweet Riot Nibs # 65. Popcorn is a food
group to me, as is chocolate (preferably dark). mmm did I mention
bacon? love it! I don't like anything spicy or slimy but I can find
something to eat at almost any restaurant
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a good book, an exotic vacation plan, good music, hopstop, my

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I was kind of a groupie (but not in the sex backstage way) for an
80's pop star from 1999 until a few years ago and if you get my
voice mail, it's his recording on it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you're at least 5'11 (that's a deal
- you are relatively normal on the outside, but once you scratch
the surface there is a bit of deviance to you.
- you have a facial pic posted and at least one with no hat and/or
-you're really interested in meeting and you're not going to become
a sock in the dryer
- Manhattanites are preferred (but not mandatory) mainly due to
- you have something nice to say. I've encountered so many mean
people on this site that were never taught by their mother that if
they don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
When did manners go out the window? The internet does not give you
the right to be mean.
-you are a real person whose profile matches your pics. I've
encountered no less than a half dozen "catfish" on this site. I
will check and maybe ask for more pics. If you're real, don't take
it personally. Blame the assholes.
- I swoon for assertive non-snorers that are seat-giver-uppers on
- Please note that I don't have "Pen-Pal" listed as something I'm
looking for. I don't prefer the weeks long messaging back and forth
or long-distance "relationships." So, if after a couple days of
messaging, let's bite the bullet and invest an hour of our time and
meet. What have you got to lose?
I'm really bad at making a first move and most times I am awkward
at sending that initial message (don't hold it against me,
please!). So if I've rated you, think of that as a smile from
across the internet abyss and take it as a sign of interest and if
the feeling is mutual, drop me a line. I'd love to hear from you!
