My self-summary
Where to start? I'm a fairly new arrival to Seattle, having moved here from the East Coast a couple of years ago...

I'm passionate about many things in my life- cooking and enjoying good food, good music (classical, indie rock, jazz, etc.), listening to NPR, running, sailing, volunteering, and finding genuine connection with others.

A few random things about me... (in no particular order)

I LOVE to cook and enjoy good food, especially with those close to me. Perhaps I will cook for you, too!

I prefer real books to eBooks-- I enjoy the tactile pleasure of holding a book, seeing it on the coffee table.... I still buy CDs:)

I like being present with others. When I'm with people, my phone goes away! If you're like this too, then we're already off to a good start...

In general, I'm looking for someone who is thoughtful, genuine, kind, and has similarly progressive values (pro-choice and pro-same-sex marriage, etc.)

I'm especially attracted to warm, smart, passionate women who have a voice and enjoy sharing it with the world. I'm fairly assertive myself, in a balanced and grounded way (a good combo of my East Coast and West Coast identities, I think!), and I'm drawn to others who have a similar warmth, vibrancy, and grounded substantial-ness to them. Does this sound like you, dear reader? If so, read on!
What I’m doing with my life
I work in the nonprofit/philanthropic sector.

When not at work, I love to sail on Lake Union, run along Elliott Bay, sing, volunteer, explore new places to eat, cook, go to lectures at Town Hall, concerts, etc...
I’m really good at
Making lasting, meaningful connections with others
Being assertive, yet thoughtful and kind
Listening
Sailing and windsurfing
Cooking (and talking passionately about good food!)
Making my friends laugh
The first things people usually notice about me
My positive and energetic (yet, balanced;) nature, perhaps? Though, before that, I'm sure they probably notice my height... and my smile.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Movies: Lost in Translation, Blade Runner, Dead Poet's Society, Afterlife
Favorite Music: The XX, Phoenix, Sting, Brahms, Beethoven, Miles Davis, Billy Joel, Vienna Teng
Favorite Restaurants: Le Pichet, Shima, The Dish

2. Good food
3. Good music
4. The ocean
5. Irish breakfast tea
6. My ORCA Card!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
[Sound of crickets chirping]
Don't get me wrong... I like a good think. I just can't say that there's any one thing that I think mostly about!
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing at home or sharing good food with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I dunk my grilled cheese in ketchup!
(I can tell you more shocking things, but it will have to be in person;)

  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 28–43

  • Who are single

You should message me if
...some (or all) of the following sound like you--
~Friends and others may have described you as passionate, smart, thoughtful, loving...
~You listen. And think. And want to know what others think/desire/believe/care about.
~You're flexible and are a good communicator when in a relationship!
~There's a sense of humor...and a playfulness...and a sensuality about you.
~You think about the world, value community, can be philosophical about life, and continue to learn more about yourself and what's truly important to you.
~You like to find meaning, in connection with others, in conversation. You'd enjoy the occasional deep discussion over coffee as much as being silly and laughing till your sides hurt...
~You like being totally present with the important people in your life and usually prefer to put your phone away when you are together with them (emergencies excepted, of course!).
~~~~
~You're looking for a real connection and are in a place in your life where you'd be ready for something long-term, if things were to feel right.
~And of course-- you find yourself resonating with some (or all?) of this!
