Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Small-town Louisiana girl making a life in D.C. Lover of strong
coffee, handwritten letters, witty banter, campfires, unexpected
conversations, international adventures, obscure pop culture
references, bad puns and soul music. Livin on a prayer. Just
kidding, I don't pray. Did I just quote Bon Jovi?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working as a politics reporter and consulting producer on a
documentary. I love my job. Still exploring D.C. after ten glorious
years here, watering my plants on a semi-regular basis, making a
dance party wherever I go, trying to live a semi-weird life. Just
bought a place in Northeast thinking a mortgage would thrust me
into real adulthood, but I don't think it's quite happened yet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Parallel parking, scrabble, making the perfect mixtape, peeling
crawfish, witty banter, solving other people's relationship
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been called a "tall drink of water," but I have yet to figure
out what that means aside from the tall part. It's a compliment,
right? I don't even care.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Ohhhhh man here goes. Books: The Scarlet Letter, The Sun Also
Rises, The Great Gatsby, The Phantom Tollbooth (#TBT), anything by
Junot Diaz, Tom Robbins, Toni Morrison, or Hemingway. Really into
non-fiction and biographies at the moment. Favorite movies are Pulp
Fiction, Royal Tenenbaums, Dead Poets Society and Good Will Hunting
("It's not your fault!") I watch True Detective and House of Cards,
and I'm devastated that Breaking Bad is over. I'm all over the
place with music, but I especially love 60s soul, 90s hip-hop,
Robyn (yasssss!), Holy Ghost!, Van Morrison, the Beatles, the
Stones, and Radiohead. D'Angelo's new album is incredible.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good coffee, situational humor, all four seasons, a reliable news
source, close friends, and the chipotle chicken nachos at Meridian
Pint. I suppose I could technically do without that last one but it
wouldn't be the kind of life I want to live.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What the one thing is that Meatloaf wouldn't do for love. Whether
cheesecake is technically a cake or a pie. Why Congress is so
fucked up and has so few women in it. Maybe I just answered my own
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably making some new recipe I found in a magazine and watching
a movie all curled up on the sofa. I also love to go out to the
mountains or the coast for some weekends, and I occasionally seek
out a worthy dance floor. I also REALLY LOVE to play bridge, but I
can't find anyone under 80 to do it with. Sometimes poker will
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I absolutely hate online dating, like probably more than you do.
But I am willing to do this to expand the universe of awesome
people I might meet.
That said, if one more person writes "u" instead of "you" in a
message to me on this thing I might completely lose it.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got a lot of soul. You live in DC and (gasp!) like it here.
You know what it feels like to laugh so hard actual tears come out
of your eyes, and to get so absorbed in a book that you read it
standing up on the metro. You are genuinely curious about people,
and you're plugged into what's going on in the world. You're kind
to waiters, you respect women, you can make fun of yourself, and
you don't take shirtless selfies at the gym. You understand that
Alanis Morissette's definition of irony is the most idiotic assault
on the English language there ever was. Bonus points if you like to
