My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey there!

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 in meeting me after checking out my profile, you'll have to take the step of messaging me first. I'm taking a break from any type of initiation (except for in person smiles and "come hither" looks of encouragement, haha). I'm not at all into playing games but I am into being pursued by a man who knows what he wants and will make the effort and take the risk to go after it...that's just how I roll these days :)

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 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 regard.
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'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 a lot.
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 ;)

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile! :-)
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.

1) Dance
2) Music
3) Meditation/Reflective Conversations
4) Laughter
5) Peace
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 high :)
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 have integrity, which means 2 things to me (your words and actions consistently match up, and your actions are in alignment with what you say your values are.) This is SO SO important.

. . . .you are emotionally available and you know you are ready for something "more" if the right woman shows up.
