Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a laid-back girl who loves to be outdoors and active. I enjoy
running, yoga, playing and watching most sports, and getting out of
my comfort zone to try new activities. I have run several half
marathons and am currently training for my first full marathon... I
love the mental and physical challenge of long-distance running,
and it's fun to have something concrete to train towards!
I’m very in touch with my “inner child” in that I really enjoy
playing games and goofing around – I’m not ashamed to say I love a
game of Battleship or mini golf! I grew up near the ocean and am
happiest when I’m on or near some body of water. I consider myself
a creative person, and love to make/create/build things with my
I try to keep an open mind and positive outlook, and think that
every experience in life can teach you something valuable. I enjoy
being around grounded people who have similar values as I do, but
also who challenge me and/or expand my horizons. My friends and
family are the most important things to me and I prioritize my
relationships with these people above all else.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Still figuring that out! I want to do something that is
intellectually stimulating, really challenges me, and that has some
small positive impact on something bigger than myself. Outside of
my career, I want to be adventurous, open to new experiences,
creating meaningful relationships, and constantly learning.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting to know people. I think I’m a pretty good listener, and I
genuinely enjoy meeting new people and learning about them and from
Also, parallel parking. Hold your "girls can't drive!" comments
there, I promise I'll prove you wrong if you give me a tight space
between two parked cars.

That I'm a girl, since my name suggests otherwise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books, Great Expectations and To Kill A Mockingbird will always top
the charts for me. More recently, I loved The Help. Currently
reading The Alchemist.
Shows: I love Homeland, Downton Abbey, Seinfeld, How I Met Your
Mother, Game of Thrones, and Glee. Okay fine, and The
Movies: I don't have a list of favorite movies, but I do love
Inception (love movies that make you think!), The Departed, Almost
Famous... recently really enjoyed Moonrise Kingdom.
Pretty open to different kinds of music – The Band, Van Morrison,
Kings of Leon, The Lumineers, Stevie Wonder, Mumford & Sons,
Fitz & the Tantrums, Virginia Coalition...
Food: may seem random, but if I could choose my last meal on earth
it would be risotto. I also really love scrambled eggs. And I think
avocado makes almost everything better (and I can't understand why
Taylor Gourmet doesn't have it on their sandwiches!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Typically I prefer a low-key Friday night, getting dinner/drinks
with friends. Maybe playing pool or hanging out at a casual bar
with a small group. I'd usually rather have Saturday night be a
later/rowdier evening of the weekend
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I put ketchup on almost anything
Also, I like to whittle every once in a while. And no, I'm not a 75
year old woman who sits at home crafting, but it's very relaxing
and rewarding to wind up with a finished product that you created
with just your hands and a few tools!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think we have a few things in common; you are a down to earth
person looking to make connections and have fun conversation; you
aren't the type to upload self-taken pics of your abs. (That last
one is clutch.)
