Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
It's true, I've been here before, so if you recognize me, then "hey
how's it going?". I've done the online dating thing on and off
again, and have met some great people along the way. I've learned a
lot about myself during that time, but just haven't found the one
that seems like a lifetime partner...not yet anyway.
My name is Jen and I've lived in Portland for 15 years. I spend my
daytime at work and my evenings are filled with friends, some
school work (back for my masters), and maybe some couch time. I
like my job and am going back to school to progress in my field,
and am overall very happy with my life. I have great friends,
family and things that keep me active.
Overall I like to think that I'm pretty funny, down to earth and
have a big heart. I don't require the same interests in a partner,
but do require him to be interested in me and what I'm doing. I
appreciate some chivalry, but am also a pretty independent person.
I try to exercise some and like to run, but I also love to drink
beer and eat hot wings...so those two things cancel each other out
Ok, I'm tired of talking about myself :) So hit me up if you want
to chat more.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
What I'm doing with my career is working in student services in
higher education. What I'm doing with my social life is a lot of
friend time, dinner parties and finding new hobbies. And what I'm
doing with my life as a whole has yet to be determined.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing, I do it a lot.
Making others feel welcome.
Getting my car pretty messy.
Starting a dance party.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. A good bed to sleep in
2. My mom
3. The internet/ a computer
5. Diet coke
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I'm going to do over the weekend.
Lists, I love making lists.
Our education system.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
It varies. I like happy hour with my coworkers or getting dinner
with friends. Or sometimes I like to get my chores done Friday
night so that I can relax and play the rest of the weekend (plus
the grocery store isn't as crazy).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cry at almost every sports movie, it's actually not that private,
because anyone who knows me is aware of this.
