Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'd like to think that I'm pretty fucking awesome, but I have
enough self awareness to know that I'm probably just above-average
I want to meet a guy who isn't intimidated by intelligence,
strength, passion, and (let's face it) weirdness. I would love to
meet a guy who can inspire me, keep up with me, and go on
adventures with me.
Also, and I sadly find this needs to be said: please don't be a
creep. Use a bit of discretion and common sense. Add a dash of
etiquette and a good slathering of reading comprehension.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Asking my 2.5 y/o niece things that confuse her: "Do you want a
firetruck on your sandwich?"
Trying to get my dad to go outside the U.S. borders for once in his
life now that he's retired. Tried to Amelie him (had a friend send
him a post card in Italian from the Vatican). Didn't take (he was
pretty freaked out that the Vatican knew where he lived).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My family and friends
2. Modern medical technology (check out the photo of my artificial
3. Music (Nietzsche said "without music life is a mistake" and I
happen to agree)
4. A fully-loaded kitchen (both hardware (sharp knives) and
software (fresh produce and proteins))
5. Buddhism (made me less of a bitch--Thich Nhat Hanh, Tara Brach,
6. The video of this little
penguin squealing with glee
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...whether my father is correct in saying that DC is not the place
to meet a mate and that I should go West...
...why everyone thinks calling each other bae is cute. It means
poop in Danish apparently....
...wondering how many women didn't get the memo about leggings not

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
trying to avoid the Blerch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
