What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Following my bliss at the moment. Organizing, socializing,
volunteering. Rearranging my living room. Considering adding TaiChi
to my excercise regimen.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I loosen tongues. I don't do it on purpose. It just happens. Its
usually fun for all concerned but it can also be a little unnerving
My friends also tell me I'm pretty intuitive.
This makes me a pretty good matchmaker (not that I go around
matching people up). I just haven't be able to get the benefit from
my own matchmaking skills.
I've cooked meals that have brought vegetarians back to flesh
I'm good with kids and animals.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes and my laughter. I have a strange sense of humor and I
laugh a lot when in good company. A friend of mine and I went to
the Museum of Sex and we had most over most of the people in there
cracking up at our observations. People we'd never seen before and
probably won't see again were stopping to share all sorts of sexual
anecdotes with us. We had a great time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not sure whether knowing what books I've read or music I listen
to will really tell you anything important about me. On the other
hand we are what we consume be it food, news or entertainment. If
you decide you want to get to know me better, I'll be glad to
answer this question.
My preferences are very broad. I'm a journalist by training, a
writer and was an English Minor is school so I have several favs. I
recently finished Kindred by Octavia Butler and Book 4 in the Game
of Thrones Series. George R. R. Martin is great. Sci Fi geek.
I'm a cook, so my tastes in food are broad it's easier for me to
talk about the few foods I dislike than the ones I love. I'm
partial to Asian food and cheese though.
I'm from a very musical family so my musical preferences are pretty
broad and vary depending on my mood.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I've done without a lot of things in my lifetime for short periods
of time. Let me explain:
When I was 5, I thought I couldn't live without big juicy peaches
and Christopher Reeve. Christopher Reeve is gone but I'm still
here. R.I.P Superman
I used to eat sushi every week, thought I couldn't live in a city
without a sushi bar. I haven't had sushi in months and I'm not dead
I can get by without a lot but abstemiousness ain't really my
thang. I guess I'd have to say I really can't do without my five
senses and companionship.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to finish the novels I've been working on.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
