My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've moved to the Seattle area after living in Brooklyn for 7 years. I'm at least glad to be in a place that doesn't get to 119 degrees in the summer (true story!).

I enjoy baking, indulging my love of strange bits of history, old New England coastal towns (starfish!), vintage tin litho toys, soul music, willows that weep into the water, the ballet, whirling dervishes, and wandering around metropolises aimlessly.

I am torn between my deep love of the city and the inescapable desire to move somewhere rustic, slower, and very, very old. I spend a lot of time daydreaming on Upstater's website.

I am an organized sports atheist.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was a writer and editor in Manhattan for seven years. Now I'm moving on to a new chapter and going back to school for a paralegal post-bac. Which seems sort of ridiculous when I already a bachelors degree, but it'll allow me to do what I wanted to in the first place: work in criminal justice. I took a pretty serious and pretty awesome detour along the way, but I'm incredibly excited to get back to doing what matters to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I make the best fish face you'll ever see.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hear a lot about the hair.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've had years of plenty, and later moved to New York with one suitcase to my name and slept on an air mattress for months. And four months without a job where I had even less than that. Experience has shown me there isn't much I can't do without, though I'm grateful I no longer have to.

That said, I really love:

Autumn
Kombucha
Cicadas
Soup
My phone, but mostly because I get lost a lot. If I didn't have an unlimited plan, 3/4 of my bill would be for GPS usage.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wondering why the people who talk about "no drama" in their profiles always seem to have the most drama in their lives.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're traditional in the best ways and progressive in even better ways.

You resemble Joel McHale in any way.

Or you have something to offer that's so amazing it makes me not care that you don't resemble Joel McHale.

You didn't answer the "most private thing I’m willing to admit" question with any version of "well, if I admit it, it won't be private anymore."

More seriously (though I am pretty serious about the Joel McHale thing), I'm looking for a man. Not a guy, not a dude, not a boy. The rest can be negotiated.
