Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Grew up in SoCal, lived in NYC for 8 years and moved to Chicago in
August 2012 (boy does time fly).
I'm a sweet, sassy, sexy, intelligent, funny, energetic,
thoughtful, strong, determined and genuine woman (phew, that was a
lot of adjectives). I'm here to meet someone who I can potentially
build something lasting and meaningful with. I'm ready to find a
man who will be as consistent with his dedication to building a
relationship as I am (with the right person, of course).
I wish more people understood that they don't have to "try" to be
impressive in the beginning stages of dating. I don't want to be
impressed with a version of you that you can't actually sustain. I
want to be impressed with the real you. The one that makes an
effort, is thoughtful and kind because that's just who you are; not
who you are trying to be. Most any man can be awesome in the first
couple of months, but the true test is beyond that. I'm not here to
meet a perfect man, but rather someone real, able to be vulnerable
and who will show me the good, the bad and the ugly and let me do
I surround myself in life with those who have integrity, kindness,
curiosity, goofiness and positivity. Positivity is a big one! I'm
looking to meet a man who has a good head on his shoulders, a zest
for life, dreams and aspirations and who hasn't lost sight of the
importance of relationships (romantic, friends, family) . . . of
course, career and financial stability is important (and I'm super
passionate about my career) but it's the people and relationships
in our lives that bring us the most joy and that truly matter the
most . . . in my opinion, at least :)
I have a youthful spirit and wisdom beyond my years (in my humble
opinion, haha). Growth and personal development are an important
part of my life and I'd love to meet someone similar in that
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a Pilates and Gyrotonic teacher and run my own business. Most
likely you have no clue what Gyrotonic is (google it...it's pretty
awesome!). I love love love what I do. I feel very lucky to have
found a career that I'm passionate about.
I've been a dancer/performer all of my life. Taking dance classes
and performing brings me an ecstatic type of joy that is truly
beyond words. Dancing is probably what makes me the happiest in
life. I haven't danced much since I moved to Chicago but I miss it
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1) Making (and eating) guacamole :-)
2) Laughing and finding the humor in many situations. Sometimes I
laugh at too many things, haha (see, there I go).
3) Being silly
4) Making people feel comfortable and cared for.
5) Being sarcastic. Hopefully you are too!
6) Dancing . . . I've been dancing since I was 3 years old. Don't
expect me to bust out crazy moves on the dance floor though. I
prefer to be a goofball on the dance floor.
7) Board games!!!!! Taboo, Catch PhDrase, Balderdash, Cranium . .
8) Communicating. I'm seriously a rock star at communicating.
9) Listing things I'm good at ;)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've decided to take family and friends off the list since that is
assumed for most of us.
3) Meditation/Reflective Conversations
6) Avocados . . . or maybe cheese (it's a tie)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-How to live a balanced life.
-Food! (yes, this one deserved an exclamation point)
-How to continuously challenge myself to grow.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be obsessed with Matlock and Columbo when I was in junior
