My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Where to start? Here are some of the things I like best (this is redundant with "favorites" below): great conversations during which an hour passes but it feels like five minutes, men who like to cook, yoga and other ways to workout, staying in luxury hotels (especially at government rates), restaurants with great atmosphere/ambiance, certain jobs I have had, my 7-year-old daughter, people who don’t judge when they haven't been in another's "shoes," good friends who listen and offer insight, planning my next vacation (that probably includes a beach), pink and burgundy but not bright red, true stories/memoirs of how people have overcome hardship, the occasional dive bar, my favorite season: spring and it's flowers, most dogs, Big Sur and the Monterey Peninsula, Montana, Chicago (the city), 80’s music (reminds me of college), sociology and psychology, the occasional tabloid (hey--there's a reason they are shelved in the checkout area), day trips from the DC area, movies that are not science fiction/fantasy, my daughter’s laugh, and my daughter’s idiosyncratic way of dancing.

You, too, would like the last two things I listed if you heard and saw them. You truly enjoy your successful career, but you are not "addicted" to it. You are a good listener, but not extremely quiet. You appreciate people who have made a good effort at establishing a work/life balance. You recognize that having a good sense of humor is very important, and yours very well may be rather dry. Friends are important to you. You may have mixed feelings about the DC area. You are not a judgmental person (this bears repeating). Unlike me, you may like the color red (over burgundy and pink) and you may prefer fall's leaves to spring's blossoms.

Major bonus points if you have a witty, dry, but fun sense of humor. If you still harbor feelings for "the one who got away," I will not have patience with you. Lastly, we both understand the importance of good, open, on-going communication in a relationship.

Hmm..that last sentence sounds cliche. Seriously, though, if you are funny, you probably will think I am too. We've got to start somewhere, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have one of those jobs that can be hard to explain to people. Program evaluation, and especially policy analysis, can be kind of amorphous. I like that I work for an agency that has (what I believe to be ) an important mission. Plus, it brings me into DC -- I am not a "suburbanite" at heart.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
finding my way around. Chances are, I have the best sense of direction of anyone you have ever met. (I am still trying to figure out how it could make me $.) My other talents aren't something I am going mention here.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Comments about how *very* young I look occur so often that the novelty wore off a long time ago. Then again, the older I get, it becomes more of a compliment and it becomes less of a problem professionally.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
With regard to books, movies, and music, it might be easier for me to list some of what I don't like. As I mentioned, I am not a big fan of the sci-fi/fantasy genre (movies/books). I am a bigger fan of blues than jazz. I like reading memoirs, autobiographies, and biographies. (Yes, people *do* tell me that my book taste sounds dull, but a good autobiography can read like fiction.) In general, I like books better than movies, but that certainly doesn't mean that I don't like movies! With food, I am *extremely* flexible, although Thai may be my favorite. As for preparing food, I will be honest: I would rather go to the gym or the yoga studio after work than spend my time in the kitchen cooking. There are only so many hours in the day.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
This is in no particular order:
1) My seven-year-old daughter
2) My iPhone
3) Working outside the home
4) Regular exercise
5) Great resaurants with even better company
6) Well, um, you know... (Remember--I noted that there was no particular order here)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
a lot of things that you probably don't think about. Between being a woman and having a PhD in the social sciences, what do you expect? I have a random theory/observation about the sex questions on OKC: You get "desensitized" as you answer them. One minute, you say it is romantic to kiss in Paris and the next thing you know, you are admitting to the world that you are cool with having a candle stuck in your ass. It's slippery slope -- just sayin.' (No, there is NOT really a question about a candle, but it may just be a matter of time...)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with a friend, or my daughter.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Believe me, if you meet me, I am pretty much an open book.

you actually read my profile and something struck you as interesting. If you live outside the Washington, DC area or just say hello, no offense, but YOU WILL NOT BE HEARING BACK FROM ME. Pick out something from my profile and comment on it!
