Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm empathetic, affectionate, and intelligent, and I like people
who share those qualities. I love music, books, good conversations,
physical connection, food, tea, and adventures. My friends and
family are extremely important to me.
Dating profiles are hard. I dunno, does this really sound like
I'd love to find someone who can write in complete sentences, who
can make me laugh really, really hard, who will hold up their end
of a conversation with someone who thinks quickly and talks fast,
someone who's an adult when necessary but still knows and enjoys a
good night of ridiculous fun, and someone who isn't going to mind
if I'm not drinking (because I don't) but can fathom that I'm
having fun regardless of a lack of alcohol. Don't be too buttoned
up - be a little weird sometimes, you know?
I like being in the air, which is why I started doing aerials. I
like being strong. I love the city - I like the culture and
everything that happens here and the mix of people and all the
things and events that I have access to by virtue of living here.
But I also love getting out of the city and having some quiet time
and some space and fresh air.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job that's reasonable but doesn't define me. It's good but
not great. You know how jobs are.
I really like to find new and ridiculous things to do, like joining
a dodgeball league or deciding to learn new circus skills (I'm
basically in Cirque du Soleil, you guys). I go to a lot of music
shows, both local and touring. Food is great, I enjoy cooking it
and also eating it.
I'm a big fan of Somerville; I just bought a house here, so I am
always happy to go out and check out new places now that I'm tied
to the city for the next 30 years. I'm also happy to go check out
new places that are not in Somerville.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, thinking, reading, conversing, friendship, laughing.
The limbo, the hula hoop, knitting, taking silly photos. Seriously,
you don't want to challenge me in a limbo match. I won so many CD
singles at so many bar mitzvahs in my youth, I've learned all the
Also cuddling, spending time upside down, shoveling snow like a
goddamn boss, and building flat pack furniture.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Boobs. DEFINITELY boobs.
No, but really, probably my hair. It's curly; sometimes it seems
like there is an awful lot of it.
I'm an introvert who is often mistaken for an extrovert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like all of these things. I like reading things, eating things,
watching things, and listening to things. I especially like
listening to things.
I find it overwhelming to try to list all the things I like but
rest assured, I'm happy to talk about it in person.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Fresh air and water
Fun, interesting, and creative people
Something fuzzy and squishy to hug, like a stuffed animal, a cat, a
dog, or a person
That's more than six isn't it? Shit, guess I'm fired.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just way way way too much stuff. I think I need to learn to

Also, although it's possible that I might want to see you naked at
some point in the undefined future, that time is not now. So, you
know, no dick pics. Save that for when it's not creepy. :)
I like getting messages that indicate that you've seen something on
here that you like or want to respond to - something beyond a "hey
cutie." I promise my messages to you will be equally well thought
