Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
These self-summaries are such a pain, aren't they?
I've been down in Virginia for almost five years now, and I'm
really looking to meet some new people. I'm just as happy staying
in as I am going out, and I like to think I have a pretty wide
range of interests that I'm always looking to expand.
I grew up in Connecticut and I'm a New England girl through and
through. My long-term goal is to move back up north, though I'm in
no hurry to get there. I'm having a good time where I am for
I love movies, either going out to the theaters or watching
something at home. I'm hoping to find someone who will enjoy
watching them with me. I'm also a huge music fan and spend a lot of
my time (and money, honestly) at Jammin' Java in Vienna. As far as
sports go, I'm a college basketball junkie and lifelong UConn
Huskies fan, so don't be surprised if I disappear during March
Madness. Or feel free to join me, that's okay too. I'm also a big
Red Sox fan.
As far as activities go, I volunteer as an usher at the Shakespeare
Theatre Company in downtown DC, and when I'm not doing that I'm
usually looking for new local vineyards to check out (I'll take any
suggestions you have), finding cooking classes in the area, or
going to the movies. I'm not big on shopping, unless there's
something specific that I need.
I don't take things like religion too seriously. All I ask is that
you respect my beliefs if they differ from yours, and I promise to
do the same.
All in all, I don't take myself too seriously and I'm looking for
someone to laugh with me, someone who wants to have a good time. If
that sounds good to you, let's get in touch!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working as a nanny and have been for the last four years. I'm
thinking about grad school, just as soon as I can decide what I
would like to study. I also have three roommates (three!) so that
keeps things interesting.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. And telling really bad jokes.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My short hair and my glasses. Those are the things that get
commented on the most, anyway. What's the first thing you noticed?

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) My family (so cliche, but what can I say? I come from awesome
2) My friends (I am also surrounded by awesome people.)
3) My movie collection
4) The Internet (Guilty...)
5) A good kitchen
6) Coffee (And tea. I cheated on that last one.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I am in life vs. where I want to go.
On a less introspective note, the movies I've seen, what's been
good & what sucks. I did mention I loved movies, right?
And since I'm a nanny, a lot of time is devoted to arts &
crafts. Comes with the territory.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually home, unless there's something going on like a concert.
Friday nights are a good time to wind down from the week with a
glass of wine or a beer.
