Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have an adventurous spirit and am curious what makes people do
what they do. Laughing is an important part of my life, even if I'm
the only one doing it. Spontaneity excites me, just as routine
comforts me. Intimacy comes easy, especially with the right person.
I think of myself as casual and laid-back but looking for a partner
with a certain level of sophistication, intelligence and overall
life sensibilities. I'm sarcastic and I love a witty sense of
humor. I'm outgoing (I'm an ESFJ if MB intrigues you) yet laid
back. I don't need you to complete me but I hope you'll complement
me, support me and like me for who I am.
I can find my way around a hardware store, farmer's market or
garden center. I tend to gravitate towards handcrafted and DIY. In
fact, I'm pretty handy and think I can hold my own when it comes to
fixing things around the house. On a different note, I notice
details along the way and I tend to remember random information. I
love hiking, fresh air, being outside and cooking great meals with
friends. I will try anything almost once; twice if it includes
chocolate or sprinkles. I pride myself in having some great
friendships, different groups and walks of life, am intuitive and
can read body language and facial expressions like an open book. In
many ways, I consider myself to be an old soul - someone who loves
holding hands, kissing and even talking to strangers. The older I
get I'm realizing too that subtle confidence is way more attractive
than a resume or all the photos you took on your last
I'm attracted to someone who "gets it" and who is probably a combo
of artsy, conservative, athletic, smart, edgy and a dash of nerdy.
Is that you? In person chemistry is key so let's meet and see if we
click. I'm also drawn to those who have a beautiful smile, even
through their eyes.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

making that bucket list?

My smile or the fact that I'm easy to talk to and enjoy engaging in
conversation. Some call it friendly, I call it curiosity. Ok, maybe
a bit of both.

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?
meeting friends after work, going on a walk by the water, having an
adult beverage, listening to live music, playing scrabble, or
staying in and cooking dinner. Bottle of wine = happy girl. rarely

am unwinding after a long week.
