Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the Greater Boston area, and most of my family still
live there. I've traveled a lot. Most recently, I spent 3.5 years
living in N. Yorkshire, England. I moved back to the States late
February 2013. I haven't lived in New England in 17 years, so even
though I grew up here, I'm really still new to the area. I consider
myself to be more of a Floridian than Bostonian.
I'm generally a positive person with a great heart and a good
attitude. I'm very thoughtful of others, probably more honest than
most, and generally very patient and kind. It's not difficult for
me to see the good in people. I find that practicing compassion and
making thoughtful choices works well for me, and so does
surrounding myself with people who usually make wise choices.
I'm a force to be reckoned with when it comes to things that matter
most to me, but I choose my battles carefully. I'm open and honest,
but with discretion unless I feel the need to be otherwise. I'm
often the one who sits quietly, listening to you talk and making
observations. It doesn't seem like I have much to say as I smile
and ask a question at random, but I'm just thinking, really. After
a while I open my mouth with a "crazy" thought or idea, it comes
out of nowhere. You think to yourself "that actually makes perfect
sense" or "that just might work!" You're welcome :)
I have my battle wounds, and I am better (never broken) because of
them. I may very well be one of the strongest women you ever
I'm a woman who is very much interested in living in a peaceful
world, so I do my best to play my part in trying to make that
happen. I care about people, nature, and the planet, so I do my
best to make thoughtful choices. I'm a bit of an activist at times,
and have been known to protest inequality in it's many forms and
through several outlets. As of lately, most of my activism revolves
around advocating peaceful and non-violent parenting. I believe in
"Being the change" I wish to see in the world. I try my best to
learn from and embrace my mistakes. I'm a very optimistic, hopeful,
and yet realistic person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend a lot of time seizing the day at the moment and taking care
of my health (*note* no std's and nothing communicable, just ask me
and I'll tell you). Writing is a hobby, so is taking pictures, and
painting. I can get a bit artsy at times and could be considered
creative I suppose.
My transition from the UK back to the states has me in search of
new friends, which is mostly why I'm here. I'm currently a stay at
home mom though, for now. My work history typically revolves around
Business and Marketing in the tourism and hospitality industries,
but it wasn't where my passion lay. My plan for the near future
would be to finish up a degree in biochemistry, molecular, and
cellular biology at UNH.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a decent cook. Fairly good writer. Amazing mother.. I'm really
good at; thinking critically and outside the box. I'm articulate
and highly skilled in communication. I'm very good at being
attentive and observant. Making statements and being heard.
Puzzles. Riddles. Making a difference. Being present. Facing
challenges head on and with confidence. Not allowing my fears to
control how I behave. Embracing life. Introspection. Living an
example of kindness, compassion, love, and patience.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That depends on which direction you approach me from ;)
Actually, it's more likely my long red hair or glasses.
I've been told recently that I come off as very centered, as well
as easy and fun to talk to. Also my that I have really white and
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
- I mostlfly prefer non-fiction to say the least. I tend to find
myself reading articles of various sorts, also medical journal
entries, and research studies. Judge me all you want, I
-My favorite movies are typically pretty bizarre and often indie or
foreign. Gael Garcia Bernal is among my favorite actors. I love
most of Kubriks movies. Alejandro Jodorowsky is a freak, and I love
him for it..
-I barely ever watch TV (I'm not judging you). There are some shows
that I like, but usually there is a lot more I'd rather be doing.
That being said, I am a bit of a sucker for documentaries. It's
been a while since I've been into any particular show though. Maybe
you could recommend some good ones? I also enjoy a bit of NPR from
time to time, and there are a few podcasts I enjoy listening to
when I have the chance.
-Theatre is good. I love the arts, live shows and concerts are
great. Museums could be considered shows, no?
-I'm a bit of a music junky with a particular fondness for folk,
blues, delta blues, bluegrass, and 60'& 70's rock (oh yes,
bring on the trivia night). Music is very much a mood thing for me,
different genres for different activities too. I could talk a lot
about it, my knowledge is pretty well-rounded. I also enjoy singing
and do so when I'm happy. I'm not amazing, but I don't suck... I
think. Best vocals in the shower of course.
- I'm pretty much a vegetarian, though I do still occasionally eat
poultry. I hold no ill will towards the carnivorous, it's simply a
personal choice.. I like Thai food a lot, and learned a bit about
Indian cuisine in England. I enjoy cooking.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music. Friends. Laughter. Curiosity. Nature. Mistakes.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The best means of achieving the goals I set for myself. How bizarre
it is that I have this extremely rare chance to be a part of life.
New places I'd love to explore. The countless things I've yet to
learn about. My desire to one day be able to pick up a guitar and
play everything I've always wanted to. The garden I one day want to
grow. How things work. The dynamics of interpersonal relationships.
Life, the Universe, and everything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are usually no more significant for me than any other
day or night (I'm a mom). I am able to go out with friends or on
date for an evening now and then, but that typically requires
notice. Otherwise I like to read, create art, play games, or watch
movies during downtime.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a fan of Marquis de Sade's literary work. But don't get too
excited (or scared).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for educated and intelligent human beings who know what
they want out of life, and are actively doing the necessary things
to make it happen. Someone who is motivated and shares many of the
same core values as I. If you are a musician or music junky and
want to talk anything, that's great too, I'm always up for a
friendly conversation. If you like science, art, nature, animals,
or traveling a lot, we may have even more in common.. If you know
that relatively speaking, you know nothing. If you can appreciate
that we are living on a tiny pale blue dot in a universe that is
much larger than we can imagine and you'd like to tell me what that
means to you, I'd be interested in hearing that. If you have
something to teach me, or want to learn things together. If you
have some really good stories you'd like to share.
*Disclaimer* Yes, sex is somewhat important overall, but I'm not
interested in rushing into anything that even remotely resembles
casual or meaningless sex. "Chances are" I could care less about
how freakishly large your penis is or how yummy your vagina looks.
Sex is great and could be nice, but it's not my priority.
Lastly, and most important; Perhaps you shouldn't message me if you
have issues dating/befriending someone with children. My 2 cubs are
pretty amazing. I talk to them and treat them with respect. They
are great kids, both compassionate and intelligent. They are my
pride and my everything, so if this is not OK with you, it would
seem pointless to try and engage me.
Talking nearly anything science, music, or philosophy could be a
good place to start with me.. Bonus points for nerdiness, "crazy"
ideas, making me laugh, or a passion for things interestingly
absurd or odd.
Also, I'm not always the best at introductions, so better if you
start things off. Chances are I won't really have anything to say
if there isn't at least some effort put into beginning a
conversation. I don't typically reply to "Hi. How are you?"
