Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How do you summarize a self? I have always been able to read people
and I often tell people that I have a 97% accurate gut. We moved
around so often that as I a child I was always the new girl so
making friends doesn't come easily to me but when I finally get to
know someone deeply I become a friend for life. I am very
successful but never lose the fear that I will lose it all when the
next great recession hits so I work my tail off and worry non-stop
about work... except when I turn it off and then I do.
I want to write a novel. I wish I spoke Spanish. I respect logic
I feel more at ease when my house is clean. I have the habit of
twisting and playing with my hair. I like cars in the way teenage
boys do. I am frequently lost and refuse to ask for
When I go to parties I frequently get the feeling that I don't
belong... for some reason I don't fit - so I usually avoid
I don't follow sports. Please don't write me "go niners." You're
talking to the wrong person. Really. Go outside. DO a sport instead
of watching one. Just my two cents.
Rock climbing gives me peace. Lately I have felt lonelier than
usual. I am extremely fit and I don't have trouble with my weight
and I don't like to date people who are overweight. I tend to like
men who are tall, dark and handsome and rarely have I ever found a
blonde man attractive - not to say it's impossible - just rare. I
love Greek salad and tawny port and massage and laying in bed
reading on the weekends. Or extreme sports. Depending on my
I want intimacy but I am afraid to be loved. It's not that I am
afraid to be loved so much as I don't trust many people. I assume
once they really get to know me they won't stick around... even
though deep down I know I am a good person.
My therapist once told me "Fair is for 5 year olds" but I still
wish life was more fair. That said, the universe owes me nothing.
He also told me that to forgive doesn't mean you excuse what the
person did to hurt you... It just means you don't expect them to
make it okay. I can buy that.
I want to hike the Pacific Crest Trail. I have always wanted to go
to Africa. I want to do something BIG in my life. Something that
matters. I am so lucky that I need to share...
When I was young there wasn't an adult who stepped in when I needed
it. I should be that adult. I am going to be that adult.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Travel. Do something important. Give, give, give. Be grateful.
Share. Make an impact.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am an amazing friend. I am a great conversationalist. I am
honest, reliable, sincere, involved and intelligent. I am mediocre
but love rock climbing. I kick butt on a snowboard. I am a
successful business owner. I am loyal. I am confident when I am not
being totally insecure. I am really athletic if I am not depressed.
I learn new things quickly. I am a good writer and one day hope to
write a novel or my memoir but I am afraid it will get a giant O
stamped on the cover.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My intensity. Some people find me intimidating. I am confident,
attractive, intelligent, and kind.
I often find that men want to fight with me... No kidding. It
ranges from wanting to arm wrestle to wanting to take me out. I
think I unintentionally send off some masculine, "combative"
message and I am not sure when it happens or why... just an
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read non stop. I am reading The Clown by Heinrich Boll. I rarely
watch movies And don't often go to shows. Large crowds and loud
noise makes me nervous and uncomfortable. I prefer quiet
conversation with close friends
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to find true happiness...when does life happen? Sometimes I
catch myself waiting for something... Not sure what. And this is
it. This is my life.
I want to travel around the world with someone I love. I was
thinking today I want to take a year off work and see every
country... not just visit but walk the streets, climb the
mountains, swim in the rivers and meet the people.
I want to find the love of my life and take off with him...
together we will live, live, live... But I am not waiting around
for this to happen. In fact I have my doubts it's possible. But
it's fun to dream.
I am extremely independent, self-reliant, strong, capable, and
typically contented to be alone. But it would suck to be old and
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Feeling grateful for the weekend so I can recover from the
intensity of the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I wonder if my childhood makes it impossible for me to
relate to healthy people or healthy people to find me attractive.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

extremely attractive - and interesting, funny, capable, loving,
loyal, monogamous, and looking for love... I won't settle for less.
