Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't usually get political in my profile but current events are
near and dear to my heart. I stand with Planned Parenthood!!
If you don't agree, we're not a good match. You don't have to be an
activist, but on this one issue there must be accord.
If the sun is shining, I'm on my bike or a hike. Okay, even if the
sun isn’t shining I’m outside! I love to road bike, hike, snowshoe,
and cross country ski. I've tried mountain biking a few times and
had a blast. I love traveling but unfortunately have not done
nearly enough of it in the last couple years. I also fully embrace
the relaxing parts of life--drinking wine, hanging out with friends
and family, reading. I’m laid back, savor the good times and
believe life is too short to not spend a lot of it laughing! I also
really enjoy deep conversations about life, religion, politics, the
meaning of it all. I can be a smartass and sometimes dance while
I'm driving (or at least move my upper body...I do try to stay
between the lines). Did I say I love to laugh?
I like to cook, but generally prefer when I'm cooking with someone
rather than just for myself. I'm sure my cats would love to sample
my cooking, but it's not quite the same as having a glass of wine
and sharing your day with someone while amazing smells simmer on
I'm looking for an active person-you don't have to ride, but it's
definitely a bonus! I'd like to be with someone who wants to share
their passions and learn about mine. I'm a little bit of an NPR
junkie, so another bonus to you if you're aware of current events.
I'd love to meet someone who also likes to chill with a good movie
and cuddle on the couch-there's nothing better, especially if
you've just spent a few hours outside! A good sense of humor is a
must! As is honesty.
The kids in the picture are my nephews; I'm a kid free
I'm a left-leaning agnostic. If you're looking for someone to talk
about the vagaries of religious history with, I'm it. If you want
someone to go to church with, we're not a good match.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a grants manager in the non-profit world but am working on
expanding my writing to other areas. Buuuut it's summer and I'd
rather be playing!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Riding my bike (or at least I enjoy it!), being a sous chef for
someone else making dinner, procrastinating

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love to read sci-fi/fantasy the most, but I read a lot of
different kinds of fiction. I also read some philosophy and
theology/thealogy, when I'm craving brain food. Hopefully no matter
what I'm reading it's something I don't want to put down.
I'm not a huge TV watcher, but I do have some favorites: The
Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Big Bang Theory, True Blood, Orange
is the New Black, and Downton Abbey. I can rewatch the entire
season of Firefly, as well as Serenity, any day! And for movies I
love them all...Comedy, Drama, Thrillers, occasional horror and
I love to have music on most of the time, but wouldn't consider
myself an aficionado. Snow Patrol is my favorite band and I also
like Lily Allen, Kate Walsh, Capitol Cities, Brick and Mortar, Jack
Johnson, the Fitz and the Tantrums and too many more to name. I
also occasionally rock out to the 80s!
I'd have to say Indian is my favorite ethnic cuisine, followed
closely by sushi and Thai. And who can go without Mexican and

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Most likely having a low- key night, watching a movie or hanging
out with friends. I'm probably having a glass of wine and maybe
getting ready for an early morning Saturday bike ride.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go for a long bike ride or hike (bonus points if you
think a 3-5 hour ride is fun).
You can say more than "hey" in a message.
You like to talk about anything and everything.
You are not married, under 30 or over 52 (it's flattering but not
what I'm looking for). I'm looking for a contemporary.
