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. Still exploring D.C. after ten glorious years here,
watering my plants on a semi-regular basis, reading as much fiction
as possible, getting out of the country as often as possible,
slaying crossword puzzles and scrabble boards, making a dance party
wherever I go, trying to live a semi-weird life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Parallel parking, writing, making the perfect mixtape, peeling
crawfish, twerking, solving other people's relationship problems.
The first things people usually notice about me

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.
Oxygen, sunlight, food, water, exercise and guacamole.
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 go insane, quit my job, move to
a deserted island and throw all my electronic devices in the ocean.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've got 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 difference
cultures, and you're plugged into what's going on in the world.
You're kind to waiters, you respect women, you can laugh at
yourself, and you don't take shirtless selfies at the gym. You seek
out adventures. Bonus points if you like to dance.
