My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've been on the East Coast for almost 15 years now (first in NYC, now in DC) but I try to think I've still kept my "midwest nice" personality for the most part! Most of my family is still in the Midwest.

I own my condo, and rescued my cat a year ago (she's such a good girl, yes she IS!).

I'm friendly and outgoing, social, smart, kind, curious and sentimental. I'm loyal, sweet, giving, and witty.

I have a pretty active social calendar full of fun and shenanigans, and wouldn't have it any other way. I'm not a homebody necessarily, but being at home is also delightful, especially when I have someone to make snarky comments with while binge watching whatever the must-see thing is on Netflix that I'm probably missing out on right now.

I love going to concerts and seeing live theatre.

I hate ice in my drinks and mushrooms in my food.

I love *not* camping.

I use parentheses a lot.

I'll probably beat you at Cards Against Humanity.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work with IP attorneys. I am NOT an attorney. I also am the co-director of my condo's Special Events Committee. I was on the board of directors of an a cappella non-profit organization for 12 years and will probably re-join later in 2016.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Planning fun parties and making fun plans.

I love cooking/baking and I am often hosting something fun at my condo (I have gotten lots of compliments on my lasagna and homemade pecan pie).

Being the co-director of my condo's special events committee

Discovering more delicious stouts and porters, sours and ciders and reds and whites.

Being there when people need me. I'm a good listener.

Making small children laugh really hard. (I am a fantastic aunt - love hanging with kids)

Bringing good snacks on road trips.

Board games and bar trivia. (Seriously, I have a great trivia team)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My red hair and my retro glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Love Neil Gaiman, Nick Hornby, Jonathan Tropper, Jenny Lawson, Cathy Lamb, Diana Gabaldon, and Bill Bryson (to name a few). My favorite book is probably "East of Eden" and "Ready Player One" was super awesome (hooray, they're making it into a movie!)

Movies - Favorites include:
Guardians of the Galaxy (Groooot!), the rest of the Marvel Universe situation that's happening now, The Way Way Back, 20 Feet from Stardom, Argo, Station Agent, Princess Bride, Never Again, Spaceballs, Once, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Shawshank Redemption, Coming to America and anything from John Hughes.

I also love Audrey Hepburn movies, indie films and some documentaries. Indie theatres, like E Street in DC, the AMC in Shirlington or the Angelika in NYC are fantastic.

I also love anything Pixar does, and really enjoy kid's movies, even though I have to borrow kids to go to see them.

TV - "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt", random shows on HGTV or the Food Network (that guy on Restaurant Impossible scares me a little), Mythbusters, and Sherlock.
I'm a fan of BBC comedies (Coupling, The IT Crowd) and I love searching Roku for whatever awesome thing I can binge-watch.
I miss Jon Stewart.

I love live theatre! Oh my goodness do I want to see "Hamilton" on Broadway! I promise to try very hard not to geek out about my love of theatre too much.

Music feeds my soul. Anywhere from Mozart to Mumford & Sons, from Etta James to Frank Sinatra. From The Cure to Billy Joel to (early)Tori Amos to Tool. Love Bruno Mars, The Script, The Rescues and The Bird & The Bee... from NWA to Led Zeppelin. Pete Yorn, Gavin DeGraw, O.A.R., Bon Iver, Fitz & The Tantrums, Broken it. 80s music, especially brit pop, YES PLEASE.

I'll listen to basically anything except for death metal, prog rock, hard core rap and throat music.

I love Thai, Mexican (I am DEEPLY suspicious of people who don't love tacos) Indian, some sushi, a good deep dish, and delicious tapas. Oh, and cheese. All of the cheese. Except the really hard cheese. But even then, probably I want that.
And Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My Keurig - it's my 2nd favorite kitchen appliance
2. SmarTrip/MetroCard/Uber and Lyft apps (and Amtrak rewards points)
3. Meaningful connections with friends and family
4. Duck fat french fries from Cedar.
5. Music/Theatre/Art/Creativity/cool science stuff
6. A vacation every now and then
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is there a better ratio of peanut butter to chocolate than the Reese's Peanut Butter Egg?
I really want to take more swing dancing lessons.
Also, how a lot of people here seem to go to Machu Pichu. Is that a secret OKC requirement?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
You never can tell with me. I might be at a concert, or out with friends. Maybe I'm at a live comedy show...or just hanging out at someone's place trying new wine or beer, having great food and catching up with people. I could be at Arlington Cinema & Drafthouse or at Spacebar eating tater tots covered in cheese. It is entirely possible that I am at home relaxing if I have a stupid day at work. Could I be on Amtrak heading to NYC or Richmond to visit friends? The world may never know.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You get 2 things...

I have never had a driver's license (I know! So weird!) - I took lessons when I was a teenager and decided I wanted nothing to do with that. But I know how to work the GPS, and am a frequent Lyft/Uber user. I do just fine. :)

If the song "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang comes on when I'm out somewhere, I leave the area until it is over. I hate that song. It makes me twitchy.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You actually want a relationship, with the potential for something long term.
I'm a lady who has her life together --I want a guy who is looking for the same kind of thing I am. (And if you enjoy music, theater, discovering or other artsy type things and are generally awesome).

-You're happy, you're healthy (physically and emotionally), you take care of yourself, and you have your life together as well.

-You fit in my age range of what I'm looking for (give or take a few years, as I definitely don't feel like I'm in my 40s!)

You should NOT message me if:

- your opening message is something along the lines of: “hi ur cute! whats up? LOL”

- If you call me "baby", "sweetheart", "beautiful", etc. in your first message to me -- that's just super awkward for both of us.

- you just want a fling - I'm not here for that.

- You have no photo/a fake photo/the only one is a creepy close-up of your eye, or your left nostril or something, or the main profile photo is of your dog or like, a tree.

substance required if you want a response, as well as the ability to write full sentences. capitalization is clearly optional.
