Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I graduated from college in 2011, and I moved to Brooklyn over the
summer to begin a new teaching job. I'm looking for someone who
likes to watch and play sports, is interested in traveling, and
wouldn't mind having the occasional game or trivia night. An added
bonus would be if you were willing to see a Broadway show
occasionally (you don't have to be a fan, just willing to
I enjoy almost every sport, but football is my favorite. I won't
say my team right now because 90% of people will hate them, and I
don't want our first conversations to be a big argument. I also
enjoy musical theater, and I am an avid traveler. While I love
traveling around the world, I actually prefer places that are close
so I can take my dog with me.
Favorite activities would include snowboarding, game and trivia
nights, going out with friends, or participating in almost any kind
of sport. I am competitive at almost everything, so don't expect me
to take it easy on you.
Personality-wise, I'm fairly reserved at first, but once I know you
better I'm a very outgoing person. I love to be out and about, and
I'm open to trying new things. I consider myself an adventurous
person, and have always wanted to try things like skydiving or
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a special education teacher. I recently changed from a
resource teacher to a 5th grade co-teacher.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at making connections with kids (which is why I'm a
teacher). I'm pretty good with technology, whether it be computers
or video game systems. I'm also good at listening when people need
to vent about their problems. Back in high school I was pretty good
at flag football. That's something I would love to get back into.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Based on what I've been told in the past, I would say my eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books:I enjoy most of the classic novels like To Kill a Mockingbird
and of Mice and Men. I'm also a big fan of the Harry Potter and
Hunger Game Series. I don't read as much during the school year,
but I try to catch up in the summer.
Movies: A League of Their Own, Forrest Gump, Willy Wonka and the
Chocolate Factory,The Family Stone, Star Wars Saga, Wedding
Crashers, and Shawshank Redemption to name a few. There are so many
good movies, that it's really hard to list them all here.
TV Shows: Game of Thrones, Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Grey's
Anatomy, Sports, Big Bang Theory
Music: Honestly I like a little bit of everything. To name a few
favorite bands/performers: The Beatles, Maroon 5, Fleetwood Mac,
Garth Brooks, Kristin Chenoweth. I'll also admit that I'm a little
nerdy and listen to a fair amount of show tunes.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
That really depends on the weekend. I'm always in the mood for
watching a good movie, but that's not to say I wouldn't enjoy going
out and changing things up.
