Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Would it surprise you that I am not originally from Atlanta? I
think that if you are originally from Atlanta you're a unicorn. I
was born in the mid-west and moved around a lot growing up,
including a 5-year stint in England (I cannot do the accent - don't
ask). I identify with the mid-western values and sometimes find
southern hospitality to be a bit elusive? Even as an adult I've
been a little bit of a roamer, spending time in the Philly area for
a few years, and then Chapel Hill NC for grad-school before coming
down to Atlanta. But, bottom line - I really like it here and I
think I want to stay in one place for awhile :).
I am intensely loyal, a good friend, a devil's advocate, easy to
laugh, a terrible multi-tasker, advocate of animals, a poor
French-speaker, a crier in movies, a kitchen experimenter, and a
piano tinkerer, great planner professionally and terrible planner
personally. I am cursed with a long attention span and often feel
different from my millenial peers. I avoid facebook, and am
intrigued by twitter. I was tomboy as a little girl. I prefer beer
over wine. I am obsessed with lists.
I'm looking to find a man who is educated and fun, who is outgoing
like me, and sees life as an adventure.
