Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My friends would describe me as an outgoing smarty-pants who's
equally comfortable in blue jeans and a little black dress. I'd say
I make an effort to be both interested and interesting, and I'm
frequently told that I'm awesome (and not just by my mother). I'm
quietly smart, funny, dynamic, and driven - I'm a keener for sure.
I love learning new things, and I'm highly goal-oriented. Give me a
checklist and I can change the world :)
While I'm definitely independent - I've gone to movies, dinner, and
on vacations by myself - I'm very family-oriented, and I like to
spend a lot of time with my loved ones. Hopefully that includes
TL;DR Smart, funny, sweet, and motivated. Extroverted introvert
looking for love.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying new things! I'm always up for a new experience. So far I've
been diving with sharks in Singapore, white water rafting in Japan,
tree-top trekking in Malaysia, python wrangling in Thailand, and
arrow shooting in Toronto.
Career-wise, I have a good job with lots of growth potential, and
I'm studying part time to earn my CPA designation. I'm ambitious,
but I'm not trying to rule the world. I work hard while I'm in the
office, but I truly value my work-life balance.
I wouldn't say it's my first love, but I am dedicated to health and
fitness. It may not seem like it, but I'm stronger than I have been
in a long time and it's important to me to keep going. I like to
stay active outside of the gym by biking, walking around the city,
and rock climbing three times a week. I'd much rather be doing
something active with my partner than sweating on a treadmill! I
will probably never have a perfect body, but I am amazed every day
at what I am capable of doing with it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Trivial Pursuit - except the dreaded sports questions. I could
use a partner for those - maybe that's where you come in?
- Cooking - I've had marriage proposals based on my shakshuka.
Which was weird because I made it for my sister.
- Story telling - I am a magnet for strange situations, so I have
some pretty good ones
- Life - I have my ish together
- Charming your parents - Moms love me!
- Crosswords - I'm still working up to the Sunday NYT, but I'll get
there one day
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically they tend to notice my eyes or my smile. My hair gets a
lot of comments too.
I'm animated when I talk. There are a lot of hand gestures and
facial expressions, regardless of whether the conversation is going
on in real-life or just in my head.
I have a wide range of interests and I'm knowledgeable about a lot
of different topics, so after one of those real-life conversations
people often remark about that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have a deep appreciation for dystopian literature and films. I
have a sunny disposition, but a love for all things morbid and
disgusting (I'm probably the least squeamish person you
I have horrible/amazing taste in music, so if it's catchy, country,
or classic, it's probably on my playlist.
We might fight over Breaking Bad since I think it's
I love my Netflix subscription, although their most recent
suggestion for me was "My Cat From Hell" so I might be cancelling
in indignation. (Who am I kidding, they're totally right)
No fish/seafood or specialty or organ meats. Sorry, I'm just not
into kangaroo and giraffe sausages, although I'm sure they're
delicious. Otherwise I'm pretty much up for anything! I love the
variety that a city like Toronto offers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Excluding the basics like family and friends:
- A pet. Currently a Japanese street cat named Tora. She's
- My iPhone #Sorrynotsorry
- GIF keyboard. I feel like I express myself best in GIF form
- All four seasons (although March can take a hike)
- Flats after a long day/night in heels
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why women quote Marilyn Monroe like she's some kind of role
Pop culture, my love for it, and what that says about me.
Whatever's up next on my self-improvement checklist.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Like most people, I tend to do a variety of things. I often stay in
on Friday nights and then socialize and get out on Saturdays, but
nothing is written in stone.
When I'm feeling extroverted, I like pub nights or games nights
with friends. Patios and campfires are particular favourites in the
When I'm feeling introverted, I like to stay in and cuddle up with
a movie or a book, some wine, and something delicious I've just
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I should be a spy. My superpower is my excellent memory for faces,
and yet no one ever seems to remember mine. I have actually had
people tell me about myself because they remember me, but not what
I look like. I'm a ghost.
Also, I finally succumbed to peer pressure and read the Twilight
series over the summer... but I'm proud to say I didn't inhale.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I don't expect anyone to embody all of these traits, but if any of
this resonates with you then I'd love to hear from you!
You are funny, smart, emotionally available, and confident without
being cocky. You are curious about the people and the world around
you. You have a desire to grow and be challenged, and you like to
know a little bit about everything. You're adventurous but you
don't feel the need to throw yourself out of a plane to feel alive.
You can appreciate a relaxing beach vacation as well as an
action-packed city adventure. You enjoy a night in with Netflix or
boardgames as much as a night out with friends. You are family
oriented, and understand the importance of a work-life balance. You
value relationships and are willing to communicate and work through
issues. You are kind, genuine, compassionate, and generous, but
definitely not a pushover.
