Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived in Seattle about 6 years now. I would consider myself an
East Coaster who's grown to appreciate the beauty of the West Coast
who happens to be from the Midwest. The East Coast side of me is
someone who will always say what they're thinking...no matter
what...and has no problem talking to someone I notice from across
the room. The ability to be blunt combined with a wicked sense of
humor can either get me into trouble...or make for an entertaining
conversation. My background is in the arts - and that shapes my
interest today. I like to go to concerts, movies, the theater, the
symphony, museums...anything that expresses creativity. I consider
myself creative as well as loyal, strong willed, curious and
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I moved to Seattle for work...and have spent the last 6 years
advancing through the same company. Being so career focused up to
this point has meant less focus on dating. But I'm in a good place
in my career right now - which gives me the freedom to be open to a
relationship. For now, I treasure the friendships I've developed in
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at my job because I love my job, but that's not the whole
focus of my life. I'm a good friend, good drinking buddy, and good
at being open to trying new things, I could talk local politics for
hours, I think I'm a good singer (want to hit karaoke?)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm an ADD reader, usually in the middle of half a dozen books,
often about politics or the arts. I balance that our with cheesy TV
shows and stupid comedy movies. My favorite movie genre is
mockumentary (Waiting for Guffman, Best in Show) I listen to all
kinds of music...mostly pop or alternative...favorite artists
include the Scissor Sisters, Plastiscines, Robyn, Kylie, Gaga,
Green Day, Greg Laswell, Ingrid Michaelson, The Killers or
something completely random I just come across on iTunes.
As for food...I like food. I'm willing to try almost anything. I
love to check out new restaurants around Seattle, find new flavor
combinations that might finally inspire me to do some more cooking
of my own.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmm.. iPod (because I couldn't live without music).. A good friend
at my side... Passport (I want to travel more) ... Theater...
Family (both real and the family I've formed in Seattle) ... Coffee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Where I'm going to travel next... I need to cook more... What's
everyone doing this weekend?? Let's have an adventure
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are usually my night in...a little time to recover
from the week with some wine and a DVD...and prepare for weekend
plans. That's typical...but I'm always looking for something new
and fun to do on any night of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like carrots. That's about as private I'm going to get in an

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for someone who's settling into life. Not necessarily
complacent...just with fewer questions about what happens next. I'm
attracted to intelligence, someone with goals, a twisted sense of
humor, overly honest and laid back enough not to let the little
things stress them out - but still wanting to mix things up. I
believe I have a lot to offer someone looking to date with the
chance of turning it into a relationship....and I'm looking for
someone who understands that's a process. Start with drinks, a
date, more dates, meeting each others' friends, learning more about
each other - which turns into a relationship.
