Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just turned 30. Whoa. Im stoked to start the next decade of my
Portland by way of Boston by way of Portland, ME. I guess this is
operation Portland 2.0. Its finally hit me that I live here. It
only took 9 months before the "I'm just visiting" feeling to go
I'm a New England lady, born and bred. I say "wicked" more than I
should and when you get a few drinks in me my accent comes out. Its
a Maine accent, not a Boston one, I'm not sure if its any
I am an eternal optimist and I believe that everything happens for
a reason. I think that means I believe in good timing. I always
have a smile on my face and way too much energy for my own
If I had to describe myself in one word, it would be "bold", thats
a nicer way of saying I think I'm sassy, classy and a little
I'll try anything twice and I can talk to just about anyone. Slow
is not a pace I am used to but I'm learning to take the time to
enjoy life rather than run through it. I want to have a love affair
with life, you should too.
I enjoy good beer, good food and even better conversation. I am
always ready for something fun, something outside, and something
A recent conversation with one of my friends, he said "Jenn, you're
a gem. You need to meet someone who is as fun as you. Or you can do
what Gram says, 'I had to meet a guy who was just as fun as me, and
I am fun. Who wants to spend 60 years with a dud?'"
I love my life, and I would like a partner to share it with. In the
words of Gram, let's not be duds together. In a partner, I'm
looking for someone who wants a beautiful life. A beautiful life in
its most honest form; full of love, laughter and rich in
experience. I would love to meet a man that has his head in the
clouds and his feet firmly planted on the ground. I want a family
one day, he should too. The desire for travel is a non-negotiable,
and I don't see the rest of my life living in Oregon. Roots are
important, but they shouldn't hinder new experiences. I'm seeking a
fellow alpha with a brain.
If you'e picking up what I'm putting down, I hope to hear from
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm trying to be the best version of myself I can be.
I work in advertising. I tell people how to make things. I'm a

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at telling stories, really bad jokes, getting lost,
multi-tasking, making beds, talking to strangers, ordering dessert,
being innapropriate, making sauce and making people laugh.

Other than that, Im running circles around people, making friends
wherever I go and I talk to myself a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

When I think of my favorite things, its always a sensory
experience. The sound of a champagne cork popping, the smell of
rain hitting asphalt on a hot summer night, soft grass under my
feet and the sun on my face. Autumn is right around the corner, Im
looking forward to the way it smells like dry leaves, dirt and
sunshine. Its my favorite time of year.
I like my music live and something I can dance to. I also like the
oldies and goodies from Motown to deep Zeppelin cuts. I've got a
sweet spot for jam bands and sing-a-longs in the car with the
Brunch is my favorite meal of the week, its all about ordering or
making way too much food, having a few too many drinks, laughing
for hours and taking a great nap in the afternoon. Oysters and
bubbles is an ideal night out. Snuggles, popcorn and a good movie
is my idea of a great night in.
I love the smell of a campfire, and the way my hair smells the next
Books. Where do I start? I adore a great story. We can talk about
I have a dog. His name is Pete. He's my main man these days. I like
to think that we rescued each other that frigid January morning in
2009. I can tell you all about it over a beer.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Dog and a lint roller. I love him, but that dog sure does
Sauce. I love sauce.
Laughter; a giggle or a belly laugh that starts to hurt after a
A great pillow
A sharp knife and a cast iron pan
Technically, that's more than 6. I like to live on the edge.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am

Exploring. I think that covers the bases.
Or entertaining. There is always and emergency bottle of bubbles in
the fridge and a pound of safety bacon in the freezer. Priorities.

I'm terrible at cartwheels.
You should message me if

Now that's out of the way, you should message me if you want to go
out for a drink, a snack, or if you have some sweet dance moves. I
have a sweet spot for great smiles, a sharp tongue and fellow
red-heads. I like my men the same way I like my paper towels;
brawny. It might be weird if you're absorbent, but we can cross
that bridge later. If you're tall, clean up well and love long
camping trips, we'll get along famously.
I absolutely adore a man's man. I feel like they are a dying breed.
That might be the Maine in me. If you think you belong on here,
I will probably swoon.
When I think of my favorite people, there are two words that come
to mind; humor and grit. The people I love the most in my life
really make me laugh. I'm not talking a giggle, I mean the ugly
belly laugh where no sound comes out and it hurts a little. They
bring out my silly side, although that doesn't take much. Then
there is the grit. These people are in it for the marathon, not the
sprint. They work hard, they persevere, they fail and try again.
They get their hands dirty, lean in, and make their dreams become a
This is also SUPER long. If you made it this far, you deserve a
long distance high five.
