Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm just an ordinary girl living an extraordinary life. :) I'm a
veterinarian and I absolutely love my job, but it's definitely not
the only thing I'm passionate about.
I was born and raised in Tempe, Arizona, and have lived all over
the US for vet school, internship, and residency. I've traveled
internationally many times, but never lived abroad prior to my move
to Asia. In fact, I'd never stepped foot in Asia until the day I
moved here! It's been an amazing adventure so far and I love my new
I play acoustic guitar and write songs. I will do anything for a
friend. I am a kid at heart. I am sometimes overwhelmed by all the
possibilities the future holds. I've written a full-length novel
and am most of the way through a new one, the latter of which I am
fully planning to publish in the near future. I am partial to New
Belgium beers, Rieslings, Moscow mules, and dirty martinis...but
I'll try almost anything. :) I overuse smiley faces ;) and
ellipses.............and am otherwise obsessive about good
I love (in no particular order): Sunny, breezy days; windchimes;
hot tubs; boats of any kind; sushi; spicy food; holding hands;
laughing hysterically; inside jokes; Caribbean vacations; lazy days
watching movies (especially with someone special, preferably
cuddling while watching said movies); roller coasters; exploring
places; instant chemistry!
There's way more to me than that. :) But it's a start!
I am looking for a guy who's intelligent (above all!), liberal or
at least open-minded, and who will keep me on my toes! He should
also be passionate...about life, his career, his hobbies, at least
something! Bonus points for musicians, writers, political junkies,
hockey lovers, world travelers, science nerds, animal lovers, and
hot tattoos. Eloquence in writing and/or speaking is a major
turn-on. Egregious grammatical errors are not.
Basically, I'm looking for my best friend...who I can't keep my
hands off. ;) Be sexy, be smart, and be adventurous!
PS - I realize I've written an essay-bordering-on-novella here.
Just blame it on my boundless enthusiasm. :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a vet! My particular specialty is pretty cool, but you'll have
to ask me about it if you want to know more. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Typing! Possibly my geekiest trait...I can type 150+ words per
minute. Yes, it's true. I think I missed my calling as a

Physically, a lot of people comment on my eyes. There are two other
things, too, but I'll keep this G-rated. ;)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I'm an avid novel reader, and my Kindle doesn't help my
addiction. Some of my recent faves: The Invisible Bridge, Someone
Knows My Name, Whale Warriors, the whole Wicked series, The Time
Traveler's Wife, and A Thousand Splendid Suns. I also unabashedly
love the Harry Potter series, and if you want to geek out with me
over that I am TOTALLY down.
Movies: I would love to say that I love artsy independent films,
but, alas, I hate them. Some of my all-time faves are Jurassic
Park, Good Will Hunting, The Holiday, and Love Actually.
Shows: House of Cards, Breaking Bad, Dexter, True Blood, OITNB,
Entourage, House, The Mindy Project...need I go on?
Music: I'll listen to almost anything, especially if I can sing
along. I was brought up on classics like James Taylor and Paul
Simon, so I am kind of a flower child at heart. :)
Food: I think I was born to live in Asia. Love anything spicy, with
Indian, Thai, and sushi being very high on the list. Currently in
the midst of a recent but probably life-long love affair with
Sichuan peppercorns. I'm about as adventurous as it gets when it
comes to food. Pass the chicken feet my way; I'll try

It's so much fun going out and trying new things together. Let's go

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My pets (a dog and two kitties)
A computer or other writing implement!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...all the places I can't wait to visit in Asia!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home to walk and feed my pup, then either out with friends or home
decompressing after a busy week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've written a full-length romance novel. ;)
