What can I say here that will accurately convey my essence? I’m an only child so I tend to march to the beat of my own drum, but I’m not a loner (or spoiled). My friends would say that I’m witty, very expressive, direct, thoughtful and dependable.
I read all kinds of books, travel domestically and internationally, enjoy artsy things, watch a healthy/unhealthy amount of TV and try to stay fit. Also, once in awhile I find myself belting out a song at a karaoke bar, going to a jazz or Homeboy Sandman concert, or eating at a new restaurant.
I'm looking for someone smart, confident, reliable, and kind with a sense of humor. It's important that he be self-aware and ambitious. It’s great if he’s interested in the things I like, but if not, that’s cool. If that’s you and you “like” me...say hello!
What I’m doing with my life
Being a do-gooder in work and play, trying to book voice over gigs, and collecting passport stamps...
I’m really good at
planning vacations and parties, recounting stories, and baking desserts.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile or my legs. ;) And now...my purple hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Too many...Paradise, Wines in the Wilderness, No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency...mysteries are my favorite genre.
Movies: Love and Basketball, Love Actually, Sound of Music, Gosford Park, XMen, Thomas Crown Affair
TV: Way too many...BSG, Seinfeld, Law and Order, Scandal, Sherlock...again, I love mysteries.
Music: R&B, Hip Hop, Musicals
Food: (I love trying new restaurants) But these are some faves...Cheese, Pizza, Mac N Cheese, Okra, Hot Dogs, Cupcakes, Macarons, Thai and Soul Food
The six things I could never do without
Purple, Cheese, Books, Water, Laughter, Parents/Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
where should I travel next,
are capital letters and punctuation becoming obsolete,
and can someone invent an easy way to catch and dispose of random insects?
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no typical. I could be home, visiting friends out of town, or hanging out with my girls.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I will not get on an airplane without my large stuffed animal
You should message me if
you are open to planning and going on a date after a few exchanges, and maybe a phone call. Chemistry can't be determined from emails or texts...so let's meet!
