Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to dance, have adventures, and eat.
I sing in my car, and dance while I shower and cook.
I also love spending time with my cats (don't worry, there's only
two of them), but am unfortunately given to calling them my "kids"
(oh yeah). I will choose them over you if you put me in a position
to do so, so maybe don't do that.
I have a genetic propensity to being sort of tightly wound (thanks
mom) as well a predisposition to lateness (thanks dad). We all
struggle with not becoming our parents, so I'm working on both of
these faults. No no, don't worry, when I've mastered these there's
plenty more to keep me busy ; )
I haven't prioritized dating for many years, preferring instead to
focus on my career and personal independence. It still doesn't rate
very highly, I won't lie, but everyone keeps telling me that I'll
make time for the "right person". I snear sarcastically every time
this is said to me, but I'm open to the possibility.
The rest you'd need to ask about...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying not take myself or others too seriously... it's a work in
Working as a psychiatric nurse in the community. UPDATE: I've been
promoted! I'm going to being getting a medically enhanced
residential psych support team up and running--- they're making me
the boss-lady. This is very exciting, but will mean that I will be
exceptionally busy for a while. Don't be sad if I don't respond to
your message for some time after you send it because dating will be
getting placed lower on the list of priorities for a bit.
I enjoy being active. I have been into ballroom dancing for a few
years and recently started training in Krav Maga. ( I know, I
know--- I tried yoga first. Turns out I'm just not that fucking
zen. ) I also hit the gym regularly. Exercise is how I deal with
stress... and that third helping that I just needed to have...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being really organized at work, and completely sloppy at
Exceeding the speed limit without getting caught.
Cooking, and wearing my frilly red apron while I do so.
Shaking my groove thang.
Being straightforward about what I want.
Resetting the time on electronics, including the one in your car.

I read more than most people I know, but still less than I used to.
I'm typically reading two books-- one on the treadmill and one in
my leisure time. My treadmill book is either a trashy romance novel
or straight up erotica, both of which will get me on the treadmill
and staying there for an hour at a time. My leisure book will vary
between something enlightening or entertaining. My favorite book is
The Blood Oranges by John Hawkes and I've devoured many books by
Kerouac. However, I have also read the entire Hunger Games,
Twilight, and Fifty Shades of Grey series. Anything that blows my
I don't watch TV. I haven't had any sort of TV programming in my
home for over 6 years and I do realize this makes me very odd in
most people's eyes. I watch only movies! And I'm pretty open to
most genres, though I don't usually prefer war movies. I will admit
to a growing library of cheesy dance flicks-- it's a
My music preferences vary from day to day. But I'm not typically in
for country, hard-core gangsta rap, or screaming metal.
I LOVE food-- eating, making it, thinking about it endlessly... I
have a very short list of things I won't eat.

2. A hairbrush and Chapstick
3. My sister

5. Can I list coffee again?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Food. What it will be, where I will get it, and when I will put it
in my belly. Then, belatedly, when I will be visiting the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hitting the gym before going out to see friends, but only if I have
the energy! I'm just as happy to spend time cooking a nutritious
and extravagant dinner and having a glass (or two) of wine in front
of a movie. Most recently, my Fridays are predominantly spent going
out with the weirdo I met on this site before you...
