Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Some randomness about me:
1) As a New England native, I dig the Patriots, prefer Dunkin
Donuts to Starbucks, and forget (every. single. March) that this
city has no Spring.
2) Chicago’s been home for most of my adult life, although I’ve
also lived in St. Louis, Ann Arbor, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis.
Despite the insanity that was the Polar Vortex, I still can’t think
of any place I’d rather be.
3) I’m opinionated and am attracted to similarly opinionated
people. Cashiers should hand the change back FIRST – not lay it on
top of the dollar bill. Texting is the worst thing that ever
happened to dating, after cologne. Every restaurant should serve
fortune cookies at the end of the meal. Whatever. It matters little
to me that you have the same opinion as me – only that you have an
4) When I board a flight wearing a backpack and a hooded
sweatshirt, people mistake me for someone hilariously younger than
5) I’m little and may seem unassuming, but I have a strong sense of
self – and I know what I’m looking for in a relationship. At the
end of the day, it's often the simple things that seem hardest to
find. Please be kind, self-aware, thoughtful, and honest. The rest
is actually negotiable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in marketing. If you get me started, I could go on for hours
about my favorite television commercials, packages, logos, and
retail stores. I’m a nut and I know it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing karaoke, cramming multiple charts onto a single (legible)
PowerPoint slide, wrapping gifts, finding new uses for Kraft
Parmesan Cheese, people watching, avoiding shopping, avoiding
cooking, quoting movies, finishing the ice cream, drinking
caffeine, flipping channels for 30 min instead of watching
something, spending money on spontaneous iTunes rentals even though
I have a Netflix subscription, noticing when someone got a haircut,
getting lost in the suburbs, pretending to know how to use my SLR
camera, being a semi-dork.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm, is this a trick question? Probably that I've got a big smile.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming the essentials like friends and family are out...
2) The EL
4) Belly-aching laughs
6) You, hopefully!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
At what point will I own enough clothes that I don't need to do the
laundry every week? When is the dang bus coming? What are the odds
of my meeting someone who writes for The Onion? What's a girl gotta
do to find some awesome red sandals? Why don't they ever show the
movie "Splash" on TV? How do people wear flip flops when it's 50
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching a movie, dining with friends, belting out karaoke tunes,
volunteering, chilling on my couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
In what can only be described as a momentary lapse of muscial
judgment, I purchased Enrique Iglesias' "I Like It." And sometimes,
when I am feeling really 16, I play it!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're well-educated, ambitious, confident, and a good
conversationalist – you can paint me a picture of that crazy street
performer at Clark and Division or of the time your car broke down
on 94. You see the humor in the every day, you're passionate about
but not defined by your career, and above all, you love the person
you are. I would never ask someone to change for me, and my perfect
match would never ask me to change for him.
