Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am (in a few quick words) Spontaneous, energetic, sarcastic,
animated, mischievous, and passionate.
I'm very friendly, and quite talkative. If someone else was
describing me, they would probably say that I've never really met a
stranger. I'll talk to basically anyone.
I'm goofy, and love to laugh.
I love to karaoke, and I'm definitely the girl you laugh at for
dancing in her car. What fun is life if you spend it always being
I love to travel, and will jump on the opportunity to see new
places any day. I went to Spain in 2009, and that was by far my
favorite vacation. In 2010 I flew to California to take a road trip
across the country with someone I'd never met before. We hit 9
states in 5 days, saw a lot of really awesome stuff, including
Vegas (popped my gambling cherry), The Grand Canyon, Sandia
Heights, Roswell, NM, etc... I'm trying to broaden my horizons and
take one trip a year. 2014 was San Diego. We'll see where 2015
I'm definitely a bit of a nerd. I love playing board games and
nerdy card games and I've done a few conventions such as Dragoncon
and Days of the Dead. It's been a while, but I'm up for checking
out some smaller cons again. The bigger stuff has gotten tiresome
as I get older.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Asheville in August to start my new adventure. I work as
a catering associate on the oncology floor at a local hospital and
although nothing is perfect I can honestly say for the first time
in my life I truly feel like I leave work with a sense of
fulfillment. I make a difference every day and I love what I
I love to be outdoors! I love flat water kayaking. There are few
places that do a better job of curing whatever ails me than being
on the water. I'd rather kayak than just about anything on a pretty
day. Always looking for a partner in crime for this.
I try to get in some board games or card games when I can. We've
grown a pretty expansive collection over the last few years. It's
getting a little out of hand, but it's pretty awesome. Wanna play
Cards Against Humanity or Arkham Horror or something in between?
I'm your girl.
I don't have any kids, but it's important to know that my roommate
has two kids that live with us, and they are a very important part
of my life. I love them, and I love being around them and keep them
part time when she has to work. If you just plain don't like kids,
we probably aren't a good match.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dealing with difficult situations.
Working with dogs.
Being a big kid.
Drinking beer. (that's a skill, right?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I need to read more. Just haven't had the time in a long time. The
extensive library in my house should keep me busy for a few
I love movies, good and extremely bad. The list of good movies is
extensive, because I have seen many. A good B movie is just good
for the soul.
TV-let's not get started. Nerdy just about anything. Doctor Who is
by far my favorite. Lots of other stuff is out there that I like,
everything from Agents of SHIELD to Grey's Anatomy to Orange is the
New Black. My guilty pleasure is the Bachelor / Bachelorette /
Bachelor Pad. It's absolute trash and I know it. But for some
reason... we're all allowed a vice, right? After the last season I
do feel like I may be coming to grips with reality though.
Music-eclectic taste is me. I like a little of everything, sans
metal and super country. I love classical, folk, pop, oldies... My
iHeart stations include (this is just a few) Great Big Sea, A Great
Big World, Peter Hollens, Africa (by Toto), Howard Shore, Band of
Horses, Shiny Toy Guys, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros, and
Food is good. I love Mexican and Sushi and a good burger. I'm an
adventurous eater, so if you want to go someplace crazy nobody else
will go, I'll probably try it at least once. I love cooking from
scratch and I'm pretty good at it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I used to have an answer, but after years of experience, picking 6
things is ludicrous. Until you go without something, there is no
way any of us will understand whether or not we can go without it.
I'd prefer not to go without a lot of things... but I've learned
that sometimes we are not given the choice. So what, do we just
give up if we're without these things?
One thing I really can't go without having at least one dog.
Currently, I have two, and I'm pretty smitten with my dogs.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How life never turns out the way we expect but how everything
eventually will eventually be okay.
How to appreciate the small things in life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
These days? Unwinding from work and getting to bed early. I usually
work weekends by choice. It tends to be quieter and I get to spend
more quality time with my patients.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Something you should definitely know about me before messaging me:
I am, as of September 7th, 2014, a widow. I met my husband on this
website. He was the love of my life and my world. I'm not ready to
rush into anything. I am open to finding something special and I
deserve happiness but be patient with me.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for someone awesome to get to know, particularly if
you enjoy board or card games, flat water kayaking, and dogs.
Actually, must love dogs is probably appropriate. I'm pretty fond
I'd like to meet interesting people who I can connect with. I enjoy
a good conversation, so a good opening statement is probably
recommended if you want a response.
You want to drink beer or introduce me to a cool local band.
If you like my profile! If you take the time to like it, I'm going
to guess you'd like to actually talk, so say hello!
