Body Type

My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and went to college in New Hampshire, so I'm a country girl at heart. But now I love living in the DC Metro area! I've been here for about four years now, and there's still so much to explore!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am working in community outreach with The Nature Conservancy, saving one ecosystem at a time!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Boggle. I'm my grandma's protege.

I'm also one of the few people who is good at remembering names AND faces.

I have excellent time management skills: I'm great with prioritizing my to-do list and getting everything done really efficiently. I'm definitely a planner, and I try to plan ahead whenever I can. This also makes me very punctual, and I just can't stand when people are late!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
People usually notice my smile and my intelligence. I'm told I'm a "sexy nerd." And people are always asking me whether my hair color is real (For the record, it's natural. You can't get highlights like this from a box!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: In Cold Blood, Pride and Prejudice, Machiavelli's The Prince, The DaVinci Code, anything written by Amy Tan, A Midsummer Night's Dream (I guess that's not technically a book...)

Movies: Top Gun, Sabrina (the Audrey Hepburn version), Gladiator, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Happy Gilmore, Love Actually, Titanic, Talladega Nights, Clueless, Liar Liar, The Wedding Singer

Shows: I don't want too much TV, just the Today Show in the morning and sometimes Family Feud when I get home from work. And anything on HGTV.

Music: Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, The Wind and The Wave, Celine Dion, Madonna

Food: Indian food is by far my favorite ethnic cuisine. I eat pretty much anything, although since college I have become allergic to MSG, so most Chinese food is out. :(

More categories:
Sports: Hockey (watching!), Snowboarding (I'm a beginner), Tennis (wish I were better)

Athletes: Alexander Ovechkin, Shaun White, the Williams sisters, Peyton Manning, Novak Djokovic

Comedians: Jim Gaffigan, Daniel Tosh, Stephen Lynch, Lewis Black, Nick Swardson, Kathleen Madigan, Chris Rock
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:

Family/Friends/Someone to talk to
Exercise (yoga, spinning)
Blues dancing
Victoria's Secret
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
OkCupid and how it works:

How much of my profile do men read before they contact me? Do they actually try to get to know me by looking at how I answered certain questions, etc., or do they just like my profile pic? haha

Why do some guys post pictures of themselves with pretty women or with their moms? I need an explanation about who that beautiful woman is, otherwise I'm going to assume she's your ex that you're still not over. And if you posted a picture of your mom, you've just admitted you already have the woman in your life (i.e. it's not me).

Since going on a few dates through this site, I've also been thinking of a few comments I want to make to you gentlemen:

You only have one chance to make a good first impression. I do my part: I wear cute clothes that show off my figure, do my hair and nails, and put on make-up. You showing up 20 minutes late in some threadbare sweater and then taking me to a dive bar and playing with your smartphone during our meal and bragging about how awesome you are really isn't doing anything for me.*

And all you guys have VERY similar profiles. So many of you claim to be "laid-back," say you don't have "typical Friday nights," and insist that you're good at "making people laugh." Really? You can't ALL be like that! And a lot of you have pictures of motorcycles: those death machines are a major turn-off for me!

Also, you guys get SO defensive when I say I'm not interested! I'm not saying you're a bad person: I just don't want to date you! So please just take the rejection like a gentleman and move on. Sending me some nasty message/IM isn't pleasant for either of us.

*This does NOT sum up the dates I have been on. I have been on many successful dates through OkCupid; there ARE men out there who know how to woo a woman. I just wanted to lay out some ground rules for you guys so you don't completely bomb the first date.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
with my friends, whether we are going out to dinner, having drinks, or trying something new. Or on an OkCupid date haha
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty much looking for the male version of me. Just taller, older, and maybe a bit more spontaneous. Oh, and good at math. The more we agree on or have in common, the better! "Birds of a feather flock together."
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
#1 by far: You don't have kids, AND you don't want kids.
-You're looking for more than a one-night-stand.
-You like country music. It doesn't have to be your favorite, but if we're going for a drive, I want to be able to listen to 98.7 WMZQ without you complaining about it.
-You lead a healthy lifestyle: you work out regularly, eat a balanced diet, and aren't chronically sick. I consider myself to be a healthy person, and I want someone who can keep up with me!
-You are proud to be an American/consider yourself "All-American"
-You lean politically to the right. I don't mean crazy religious right, just that you're fiscally conservative.
-Our match percentage is over 80%
-You're the "Mr. Fix-it" type and have handyman skills.
-You wanted to message me before reading this (rather long) list!
