Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name's Tanya. I’m from Northwest IN right on Lake Michigan. I
loved growing up so near the beach. I like to swim and be out on
I love history. I got my BA in history from IU. (Go IU!!) I’m an
avid reader. I love everything about books.
I suppose I'm a bit more of a traditional girl than I used to
consider myself. I believe in being kind to everyone and behaving
with integrity. But I do have a sometimes irreverent sense of
I'd definitely say I'm a geek. I love science fiction. My dvd
collection is overrun with box sets of sci-fi. (Babylon 5, Firefly,
Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Torchwood, the lists goes on and
My family is the first and foremost in my life. They’re the most
amazing collection of characters.
I'm looking to meet someone kind and funny and smart who enjoys
quiet nights in as much as fun times out. Someone who's

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a data monkey for a not-for-profit administering insurance

I love TV more than movies (there's just more story to tv than a
movie) I'm a huge science fiction fan -Babylon 5, Firefly,
Battlestar Galactica, Doctor Who, Torchwood, Star Trek DS9,
Farscape, Sons of Anarchy... OK, I know SOA isn't sci-fi but still,
a DAMN GOOD Show!! Total obsession right now. Oh and I love Eddie
Izzard, hands down favorite comedian. To talk to me for any length
of time is to hear at least one Izzard reference.
My taste in music is extremely varied, I like everything, just
depends on the mood I'm in at the moment. Loreena Mckennett is my
absolute favorite musician. I also like Enigma, Dave Matthews and
Being Italian, Italian food is my favorite. Anything my grama makes
is so made of awesome I just couldn't pick on thing! I also LOVE

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My Family, my dvr, my computers, my iPhone, my Books (my
apartment's become a library I just happen to sleep in!), and
definitely my DVD collection.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
oh goodness what doesn’t my mind wander to!!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
at the gym. Or Friday night dinner with my family.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I’m an open person when talking to people. But when it comes to
broadcasting stuff on the web I’m rather reserved.
