Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I took a knock-off Meyers-Briggs test that pegs me for an ENTP: the
Rational Inventor. That is no surprise. I'm lucky I get to follow
A tomboy in childhood, I can be ladylike and un-ladylike, depending
on what is appropriate at the time.
I am originally a Midwesterner, earned honorary citizenship in
Oregon, then moved to San Francisco in 2005 for work and I love it
I'm into sports. I even go to games alone if I feel like it.
I raised two sons who are now 18 & 21 and have left the nest
(mission accomplished!) I did this while finishing an economics
degree and starting up a career. They have a lot of style, which I
like to think they got from me.
I can be very independent, even though I love and sometimes crave
companionship. I don't often group around in groups because my best
friends are so different from one another that I can never get them
in the same room. I lead a vibrant life, and one of these days I
would like to find someone to share it with. One of these days...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm happily coasting along, secure in reaching my ultimate goal of
world domination. I have a career in energy
policy that keeps me busy. I enjoy
professional sports, I read, I like to do crafts and act domestic.
I collect maps and curiosities, and this takes me hither and yon to
interesting little shops.
I work hard, I play hard and I relax hard. I love travelling all
over California, and lately I've been daydreaming of taking an
extended vacation to the tropics. I have a ton of unused vacation
My favorite outdoor activities are golf and kayaking, both of which
involve being near/on the ocean. Scoping out wildlife and exploring
beaches is also fun for me. I'm a decent skier when I get
But face it: I'm a car-less city girl (I don't even OWN a kayak) so
I'm into brainy things like economics and public policy; exciting
things like pro sports; hedonistic things like playing guitar and
drinking fine wine and wearing pretty dresses and getting my nails
done and trying out great restaurants.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at telling funny stories about outrageous situations
(generally taken from real life observations.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm colorful and energetic.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lists, lists, lists. Just skim this section.
[UPDATE: I deleted all but a couple of the lists. Who needs
FOOD. I believe that if it was cute in life, it will be delicious
on a plate. Sorry vegetarians, we're probably not a match. Vegans
need not apply.
Movies...The Royal Tennenbaums/Rushmore/Life Aquatic (anything Wes
Anderson), Annie Hall (almost anything Woody Allen), Death Proof,
Kill Bill 1&2 (anything Tarantino), Blade Runner, Empire
Strikes Back, This is Spinal Tap, Boogie Nights, Kubrick, ...help
me out here! I am drawing a blank so many good movies. ANIMATION!!!
Anything Ralph Bakshi, Archer, Korgoth of Barbaria, old Planet of
the Apes, Samurai Jack, SouthPark, the Brak Show...ah, tasteless
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A purpose in life
Something good to read
nature around me
Not "just food." I need Great Food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Pretty things. Sex. My work. Economics
. Businesses. Laws
. Being in a metal opera.
Society. The nexus of war and peace. Why I always miss buses.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I might be at a game. Or maybe I'm out on the town. Maybe I'm
having a small dinner party--I love to cook! Or maybe I'm just in
the mood to go straight home to the comfort of a relaxing
bubble bath after a long
work week. Pretty typical for SF, eh?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm nervous about the Giants this year. Also, someone got me into
Stephen King and now I'm reading Bag of Bones.
