Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, I've had this profile up for a while. Before I give up on the
whole online dating thing, I thought I'd shake things up and see if
there are any interesting men out there who may want to hang out
Let's hit the basics first: I've been in Marietta since 2012. I
have a soon-to-be-10 year old son. I work a full time job in the IT
industry. I like my life overall, but want to have more FUN.
More interesting stuff: I like to ride my bike (slow, but far),
training for some upcoming races (10k and half-marathon), love
hiking and really enjoy being outdoors in general. I like being
active, but also enjoy laying in a hammock or lounging poolside.
I'm a tough girl, but shriek and run if bugs get on me -- that's
the only *really* girlie thing I do. I generally laugh too loudly,
dance the line of being inappropriate and my biggest vice is
swearing like a truck driver. I'm a vegan for health reasons --
that means I don't eat anything with a face, but I still rock a
pair of leather heels. The taste of dry, white wines makes me
happy. I'm a sporty girl - Chicago Bears & New York Yankees are
my teams. I will bandwagon ATL teams during a good season, but I
support my Michigan teams hands down cuz I'm a Michigan girl at
There are a few deal-breakers: I'm staunchly against smoking and
dating married men. Actually, the men I don't mind -- it's the
wives that drive me crazy. (Thanks, but no thanks). There are
others, but you'll know if you're hitting them. Men always know.
Start by saying more than "HI." Just a "Hi" does not merit a
So to sum myself up: I'm a multi-racial, health minded,
middle-of-the-road, quirky girl with an open mind, a dirty mouth,
an easy laugh and a slightly inappropriate sense of humor. I'm open
to meeting men from all races and ethnicities.
I'm looking for a fun guy who wants to catch a concert at Chastain,
a Braves game, find a local fair/festival or go on some other
adventure. I'm attracted to men who are intelligent, quick-witted
and have an appetite for exploration and fun. I am especially
attracted to really smart, semi-shy, nerdy types. Men who are
smarter than me pique my interest. Tall, funny men who are smarter
than me sweep me off my feet! Trust me, if I'm interested, I'll
find time to get together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
In my spare time, I dance, paint, go to street festivals, see live
music and explore new and different cuisines. I am getting back
into weight lifting and thinking about trying crossfit for some
stupid reason. I love to travel but don't get away nearly enough.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at life. I know some pretty decent life hacks.
Nothing overwhelms me, and if it does, I project plan my way out of
it. :-) Things typically fall my way, though I don't know if it's
luck or karma.
The first things people usually notice about me

People usually notice that I am always smiling. I'm a positive
person who looks at the glass half full and sees the silver lining
even on the bleakest days. Either that or my big, brown doe eyes.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There is no typical Friday night. I could be in bed enjoying a
movie with a bowl of snacks, out with friends, chatting up
interesting people at a bar... I'm footloose and fancy free!

Although I admit to having a schoolgirl crush on Batman (The
Animated Series) my biggest fictional crush is Atticus Finch. I
almost named my son "Atticus," but wasn't certain how that would
play out in 2005 and beyond. One day my boy will thank me.
