My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Wisconsin, on Lake Michigan (near Chicago) and found my way to the DC area via NYC. I've been here almost 7 years, and no one is more surprised about that than me.

I'm friendly, social, smart (some would say smart-ass), kind, curious and sentimental. I'm warm, outgoing, funny, loyal, and as a friend once described me "a bit of a messer".

Family is very important to me (and someday I hope to have my own) However, most of my family is back in the midwest so I don't see them as often as I'd like.

I'm definitely a social butterfly. I have an active calendar full of fun and shenanigans, and love to stay busy and engaged in the world around me.

Music is my passion. Love going to see live shows.

Music's mistress-- the other passion I have, is theatre. I see whatever I can locally, and I have no problem running up to NYC to catch a show that has caught my eye.

I hate ice in my drinks and mushrooms in my food.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I get this question a lot from prying relatives. I usually tell them that I am trying to wring the most happiness, the most fun, and the most awesome out of every day. Sometimes, I fall short, but I still have a good time, generally speaking.
...If you mean my job, I work with patent attorneys. This is DC and that's typically what people want to know, right?
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. Helping friends pick out a good beer. Asking questions. Discovering more delicious stouts and porters 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)
Board games and bar trivia. I am told that my homemade pecan pie is crazy good.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My red hair and my retro glasses. Probably also my chest. I mean, it's there.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Books - I love to read, and I read quite a lot, thanks to public transport, so I'm always reading something new. Love Neil Gaiman, Nick Hornby, Jonathan Tropper, Emily Giffin, Cathy Lamb, Diana Gabaldon, and Bill Bryson (to name a few). My favorite book is probably "East of Eden"

Movies - Favorites include: The Way Way Back, 20 Feet from Stardom, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Argo, Station Agent, Princess Bride, Never Again, Once, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, Shawshank Redemption, Coming to America, Iron Man and anything from John Hughes. I also love Audrey Hepburn movies, indie films and some documentaries. E Street is a particular haunt of mine.

Monty Python is hysterical. I adore Pixar (Up and Wall-E especially) and the Muppets.

TV - Thank goodness for Roku and my DVR! Catching up on old TV series, love the Daily Show, HGTV and Restaurant: Impossible.

I love live theatre! I was lucky enough to see Book of Mormon over the summer at the Kennedy Center, and I just got a chance to see If/Then, a world premiere musical starring one of my favorites, Idina Menzel. (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 Rilo Kiley, 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.

Food: Let's say we're having some sort of meal out somewhere (and if that meal happens to be brunch, then it is automatically super awesome) ... I will sometimes inform the waiter that I want the chef to make my food crazy spicy - I love a good spice. They very rarely get it right, but when they do? Bliss! The tears are happy ones. I love Thai, Indian, some sushi, Mexican, Creole, and delicious tapas.

If an avocado is featured in food, chances are good that I want it.
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 (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.
What sort of theme party will I be throwing that will not incur noise complaints from the neighbors, how I really want to learn yoga, and how 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?
Having fun somewhere, at a concert, or out with friends, perhaps 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. Maybe I'm soundly beating my friends at Cards Against Humanity.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
You get 3 things...

I have never seen "The Matrix" (I know!)

I have never had a driver's license - 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 I bring excellent road snacks, fun music and witty banter, which most of my friends say more than makes up for it.

If we're dancing and "Celebration" by Kool & The Gang comes on, I flee the dance floor until it's over. Few things in life make me twitchier than that song.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You want a relationship, with the potential for something long term. I'm a lady who has her life together but still wrings every moment of fun out of every day as often as possible--I want a guy who is looking for the same kind of thing I am. (And if you enjoy music, theater, or other artsy type things and are generally awesome).
-You're happy, 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 couple of years, I suppose.)

You should NOT message me if:
- 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.
- your opening message is something like: “hi ur cute! whats up? LOL” — substance required if you want a response, as well as the ability to write full sentences. capitalization clearly optional.
- you just want a fling
