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'll start off by saying that if you end up being interested after
checking out my profile, I'd love to receive a message from you.
I'm taking a break from initiating emails. It's my way of seeing if
you actually read my profile or just looked at pics. I also respect
a man more who makes the effort to reach out, has something of
substance to say and who has the confidence to go after what/who he
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 must be very
physically attracted to you AND think you're an amazing human-being
on the inside.
I surround myself in life with those who have integrity, kindness,
curiosity, goofiness and positivity. It's sexy to me when a man is
confident (not a cocky a-hole), has a good head on his shoulders, a
zest for life, dreams and aspirations and when he hasn't lost sight
of the importance of the relationships in his life. 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
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. And I'm always working on
bettering myself, learning, growing and wanting to be challenged in
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
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You connect to what I wrote in my profile and getting to know me
seems like it'd be fun, interesting and exciting.
You are authentic, honest and have integrity. This is SO
You know how to have a conversation through email and in
person....I'm always shocked at how many men will write me but
rarely ask me questions, try to learn about me, or say anything
interesting. If I notice that I'm the only one asking questions and
keeping the convo flowing, I'll stop responding to you. Seems fair,
And lastly, if you are emotionally available and you know you are
ready for something "more" when the right woman shows up.
