Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the girl who never leaves home without a copy of The Economist
and Glamour in her bag.
I love to laugh and I have a very outgoing and crazy/weird (in a
fun way) personality. As Cameron Diaz said, "I'm not ashamed to be
a bubbly, funny person. It's just as valid as being a brooding
one." That's pretty much what I go by.
I am also a huge nerd and take advantage of every opportunity to
learn something new. I love to have fun and will try (almost)
anything at least once. I also love to travel, I love to get up and
go to new places and get away.
I am originally from New York City (I actually grew up on the UES,
I'm not claiming to be from there just because I spent a year or
two there), and try to go back every chance I get. I'm definitely a
New York girl, but I have a soft-side as well. So don't be scared.
And I'm the girly-girl who loves sports and cars. A lot. (I
actually went to school for sports journalism, before finding my
true calling.) But I'm also the girl who will dance and sing around
my room for hours in absolute bliss. I like to think I'm a nice,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm moving to Cape Town for a few months to complete some research
for my masters thesis. I am studying Global Health and Sustainable
International Development in the US.
I thought it might be nice to meet some people while I'm there,
especially because there is a good chance I'll be moving back if
all goes well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything related to sports, photography, organizing (yep, I'm that
girl) being super bubbly and borderline awkward, having
deep/serious intellectual conversations (did I mention I'm a
dork?), bonding with random people's dogs on the street... I'm sure
there's more. Ask me if you're really interested.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have crazy colored eyes. But that's usually after they get past
my personality. I've heard my personality is also very
"colorful"... And I take that as a compliment.
I'm also very passionate about what I believe in and want to do
with my life, which people seem to notice pretty quickly, and like.
I don't think I'm preachy about it, just knowledgeable and easily
excitable about certain topics.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like to read non-fiction or books relating to current
events/topics, such as Half the Sky, Confessions of an Economic
Hitman, and A Thousand Splendid Suns.
I own all the Die Hard and Lethal Weapon movies, but I also have
been known to watch the occasional chick flick. I'm really into
documentaries and films based on real events. So basically I'll
watch anything as long as it's not a horror movie. Too scary!
I can't live without House, Glee and Jeopardy.
I'm a music omnivore. Currently I'm obsessed with Young the Giant,
Punch Brothers, The Black Keys, The Lumineers, and I always listen
to lots of classical. I'm not a big fan of rap or metal... I find
them a little grating...
And I will eat anything, but unfortunately I'm allergic to meat (I
still will take little bites though. I miss being a steak girl).
But I LOVE to cook. I'm actually considering going to culinary
school for no reason other than pure pleasure.
