Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like to refer to myself as a lady and see how long I can keep a
straight face (it's not very long).
I talk with my hands (wild gesticulations and such), and I love to
I love the water! Huge scuba diver, and recently got back into
swimming for morning workouts and thoroughly enjoying myself.
Fan of whisky and wine
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Sold my soul to work for corporate America (I miss you NRDC...just
not that unpaid internship part). I'm a geospatial analyst and do
work in visualizing spatial data analysis in such a way that
everyone can understand it, instead of just analysts.
Taking lead in some of my projects, which is nerve wracking, but
somehow it's working out and that's pretty damn awesome.
Outside of work, I'm doing a metric butt load of yoga to resist the
early death my desk job is leading me to, swimming a few times a
week, ultimate frisbee on the weekends, and hanging with the
On the nice days I jog/walk around. Not a runner, but my main goal
is to just to be outside and see things, and appreciate being in
the city where there is so much going on every day. If you're a
jogger, I'd love to do some easy runs sometime! Same with biking!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Spouting out random scientific facts, regardless of whether or not
I was asked to do so.
Stopping myself from saying "irregardless" in front of people who
don't know me yet, even though I have chuckled over it ever since
Being incredibly clumsy. Door knobs have it in for me.
Losing my TV remote and my keys with astonishing regularity.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
5'9 is decently tall for ladies, so that gets most people's
I've got a mess of curls going on, unless it's tamed into a bun or
braid. Fly free, curls, fly free!
When I smile most people point out that I have a dimple. Somehow it
becomes a topic of conversation.
About once a month people tell me I look like Keri Russell
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I enjoy all genres of music; each genre has its purpose. Even heavy
metal. Sometimes. At least once.
I watch serious movies, but my all time favorite silly movies are
Jaws, Wayne's World, and Uncle Buck.
I love real food. Whole milk, real butter, real eggs, real meat,
etc. Cooking is a big thing for me.
I love indian food, greek, thai, mexican and good ol' BBQ. Ordered
a plate of ribs on a first date once. I regret nothing.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My chef's knife
Knee high boots
*My mother gave me one piece of life advice that I will always
remember. Never attempt to date someone that doesn't like garlic
and onions, for it will never work out.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What can I cook tonight? Can it involve quesadillas??
What is that instrument playing in the background of [insert every
song I've ever listened to]?
Social psychology. I love wondering what makes humans tick and how
the body works. People watching is awesome.
How I can make something instead of buying it.Gotta beat the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Going out on the town and getting drinks with friends and harassing
our waiter (tipping well, of course).
Walking around D.C. and people watching.
Ooorrr staying in for the night and watching a movie/making dinner
with a buddy so I can get up early Saturday morning for some
adventure I have planned (ultimate frisbee in particular)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have incredibly intense dreams.
How about the most random fact I'm willing to admit??
I signed up for an NIH study as a control (healthy) subject. Got
paid big money to do bloodwork, MRI scans, and... a fat biopsy.
What does said biopsy entail? Apparently 4 random men staring at my
exposed ass as one of them sticks a coring needle into my cheek and
pushes out a glob of fat. My response was to say "come on, someone
has to film this for me".
Oh NIH volunteer studies... best way to sell your body for money,
but your family will still love you at the end of the day.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I have an affinity for guys that are significantly taller than me.

You refill the Brita pitcher after using all the water before
