Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I want to start by saying that I'm at the point where I want to
find something serious. I would like to meet someone who is warm
and genuinely caring, understanding, open-minded, and honest to
herself. The word, "wholesome" comes to mind. I would like to find
kindness and generosity.
Now, a little about me:
I believe there is an upside to everything and every situation,
sometimes it just takes a little digging to get to it. I am not the
eternal optimist, but I believe there is good in everything...and
I was born in China, grew up in Boston, and spent 12 years in
Seattle and New York City. Came back to the bean a few years ago. I
live by myself in Fenway with my 2 kittens.
As a little kid, it was my dream to grow up to be a starving
artist. I revised this dream when I was in art school to delete
I like roadtrips and exploring new places in general. My idea of a
great vacation involves traveling to a new city and diving into the
culture and history.
And I think it's important to try new things (and definitely new
foods) at least twice!
Oh yeah, and red is my favorite color.
ENTJ, if you're into that kind of stuff.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Looking after my 2 new kitties, Alfred and Isabelle.
I work in finance. Recently, I started driving strangers around in
my free time. I will be an illustrator, photographer, and
restaurateur one day.
I'm currently designing a Coat of Arms to pass down to progeny.
I'll get it tattooed on my arm when it's done. This may take a few
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Missing the obvious sometimes! I saw Russell Brand in Central Park
a few summers ago and went up to chat with him. I glanced at his
date and shook his hand. Then I went back to my bike club friends
and they told me that I had completely ignored Katy Perry! I had no
idea it was her.
Oh, and I can cook pretty well and bake a little. I have also
recently invented a watermelon jalapeño drink, another drink dubbed
"the Kobaeg", and I make a killer mojito.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am straightforward, direct, and honest. The other things
would probably be my freckles and that my facial hair grows red and
blonde along with black (I don't usually shave on the weekends).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Some favorite movies are Eternal Sunshine, Silver Linings, Perks of
Being a Wallflower. I like comedies, some action films, bits of
sci-fi, or anything with Billy Crystal, Nicolas Cage, Eva Green, or
HIMYM is the modern day Friends. Mad Men is genius. And I wish The
Black Donnellys were still on. BSG and GoT are favorites.
Phó is amazing in the winter. Among my favorite things are Dim Sum
on a lazy Sunday morning or dumplings at a hole-in-the-wall on a
late night. I try new foods whenever I can.
I listen to NPR all the time.
Music, let's see...there's way too many. My favorite band is the
Smashing Pumpkins! Has been since I was a kid. I have also recently
gotten into Metric, a lot. Tove Lo is a new favorite. And The
Beatles (I know I'm a bit late on this). I am rediscovering 80s
music. I like to go see live shows, most notably Le Roxy Pro.
Russell Peters is hilarious. I finally got to see him when he was
in Boston and I laughed so hard that my cheeks were sore the next
day! Looking forward to a tour by Anjelah Johnson. I also recently
became a huge fan of Kevin Hart. I get his updates on FB and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Alfie & Izzy...this falls under family
My bike & a busy city to ride it in
2H pencils & sketch paper
Good food, exotic food, and spicy food
(Wait, did I put down more than six?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to learn Mandarin; how far the DuoLingo app will take me with
Spanish; where to find the time to relearn French and
Where to travel to next. What new foods I haven't tried yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There's nothing typical about any Friday night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can't swim and I'm a bit afraid of big bodies of water. This
developed during the summer after High School when I took a
roadtrip to San Francisco and almost drowned at Golden Gate beach.
Before that I was able to swim ok. Learning to swim again is
definitely on my list.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're cool and have an open mind; you're weird, but in a normal
sort of a way; you are perfectly imperfect; you like cats, because
my Alfie likes making new friends.
You are warm, caring, understanding and down to earth. Confidence
and knowing what you want (or don't want) are also important. And
you're not on the rebound.
Tattoos are a plus!
