My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Down in New Orleans doing some recon before probably making the move here later this year... I figure if I can survive some of this August heat, that's a very good sign.

A little about me: born in the Midwest, spent much of my life in California and many great years in NYC. Been in San Francisco for about 6 years. Now looking southward...

I love learning about how other people live, think and express themselves. I deeply respect and admire musicians, designers and visual artists, and I've always wanted to date an architect. For me, my own creativity generally takes the written form. Or the form of an ice cube, if my wonder twin is nearby.

I have a really big smile that's not hard to provoke. Nothing is more fun to me than spending hours with friends and laughter and wine. And more laughter. And probably some cheese.

Being from the Midwest, I may tease you a little. You should be flattered – sarcasm is one of our currencies! (Be glad I'm not from New England, in which case I'd punch you in the arm.) And I love to laugh – often at myself. And a man who makes me laugh really turns my head.

I'm really a sweetie pie, a romantic, and I value kindness above all things.

I'm idealistic, hopeful and passionate in an Irish-Italian-Sagittarian way. I feel things strongly and have known real pain and real happiness.

I love my family and have terrific friends, and I strive to be a good friend, sister and daughter. I'm passionate about the work I do and spend a lot of time and energy on it. But I'm really trying to get that work/life balance thing going.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work for an educational nonprofit that helps turn motivated kids from low income communities into college graduates. I led the start-up of the organization's first expansion outside of New York City, and I love the excitement of starting things from scratch (or almost scratch). I know I'm lucky to have found work that makes me feel alive.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Taking chances on a new restaurant, bar, band or person. Making a day an adventure.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Airplane tickets, wine, family, good friends, California, New York City
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In or out.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a good guy. Hopeful, funny, confident. With a sense of style. If you have a goatee, you should either be a professional baseball player or a fireman.

You know who you are. You are interested in the world around you. You should be passionate about something in your life: your work, your art, your politics, etc. If you're passionate about Burning Man, you should probably look elsewhere.

You should enjoy physical and emotional intimacy like I do.

I'm a big believer in a few forces central to coupling: timing, chemistry and momentum. Timing-wise, I'm pretty much looking for the real thing. A partner for the long term. Monogamy. Probably family. In terms of chemistry, I believe in the meet-in-person kinda chemistry it's impossible to figure out online or via email. (While I don't mind a couple of back and forth emails, I'd prefer to meet you face to face...). And finally, momentum. If we're on the same page in terms of timing and chemistry, let's do this! I'm busy too -- but never so busy that I can't make time for someone who makes my heart flutter...

How does that sound?
