Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Isn't internet dating the best??? Said no one. Ever.
Anyway, since it seems to be the way to meet people these days,
so...I've been in NYC for most of my adult life and while I have
managed to surround myself with an amazing group of friends, still
haven’t met “that guy” (and I’d rather be single than be involved
with someone just for something to do). I'd like to meet someone
special and have a relationship based what I think are the
essentials: trust, kindness, chemistry and respect . That said, I
also think it’s important to want to take your clothes off when you
A bit about me: I am fun, funny, kind, smart, successful and driven
enough to love what I do but not be obsessed with it. I'm a good
listener and a great audience (I love to laugh and I do it out loud
and often). I try not to take myself too seriously, but at the same
time I am reliable and, where a situation calls for a grown-up, I
can be very no-nonsense. I can come off as a little aloof (really
it’s because I'm a little shy) or alternatively "tough" (keep in
mind I am a woman in a man's world professionally (I'm a maritime
lawyer) so it comes with the territory), but at heart I am very
compassionate and generous (both emotionally and otherwise). I
think if you asked my friends, they would say the same and then
I love cooking, eating and a good cocktail (or more than one). I am
a gym junkie. I am always "in the middle of a book". If I start one
I have to finish - even if I hate it. I can get ready to go out in
15 minutes and look cute (I can get ready and look hot in 37
minutes). My dog and I come as a package deal (thought, frankly,
she's much cooler than I am. I've learned a lot from her, actually.
But that's a story for another time).
I love learning about people and learning about life. In other
words, I like myself and I like my life…..and it would be great to
have a partner in crime who likes himself and his life too.
A disclaimer: I'm somewhere between "curvy" and "athletic" so I
picked athletic but I've def. got some lady-curves.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a maritime lawyer. You wouldn't believe the sh*t that happens
on boats. For law, its a fun gig and I really enjoy my work, but
ultimately its really just a J-O-B.
I am also a dedicated crossfitter. I wish I could get paid to do it
but I'm not that good. I can talk about things other than crossfit
but if you're a crossfit hater and can;t keep it to yourself we
might have an issue.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making people feel comfortable; listening (and actually hearing
what someone is saying!!); saying I'm sorry; sunbathing (if it were
an Olympic sport I'd medal every time!); supporting friends and
family; laughing at other peoples jokes; yoga; my job; showing up
at the gym even when I don't want to.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes (or if you're a boob man, my boobs).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by John Irving or Stephen King (go ahead and mock -
he's brilliant), The Unbearable Lightness of Being. I am presently
in the middle of the Game of Thrones books and I am
Movies: I don't like going to the movies. I know, weird, but I
TV: Law & Order (the original), CSI, The Killing, basically any
cop/law show. I suffer through life without HBO
Music: everything except "unstructured" Jazz and Rush
Food: Here's what I don't like: broccoli rabe and kale. Everything
else is fair game
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sundresses, reading, the gym, my dog, my friends, the beach.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
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?
Socializing (dinner and drinks....typical NY)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I only make my bed when I am having guests.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...any of this sparks your interest....but first, a few "must

be involved with someone special and not playing the field

I'm not old enough to be your mom)
