My self-summary
NO MEN. PERIOD.

By day I'm a professional lawyerly-type lady. By night I'm a sex-positive feminist, appreciator of brown liquors made from fermented grains, and amateur beagle-wrangler. I'm on a quest to find the ideal red wine with the best cheapness to deliciousness ratio, and I get as much joy from attending the opera as from hearing a really well-crafted nerdy or dirty pun.

I'm happily in an open marriage with a man (cj10121012) who doesn't mind if I date other women, so I'm looking to have fun with a like-minded lady who is okay with me being in an open relationship.
What I’m doing with my life
I run, I play the piano, I cook, I do ballet, I read, I attempt to be crafty with mixed results, I play video games, and I watch sports (college football, NFL, MLS, and international soccer mostly). I'm the kind of person who'd rather hang out in a low-key environment with a few people rather than party hard all the time, and I don't consider it a wasted Friday night if I'm inside with a book and a glass of wine. Low-key bars with cheap or creative craft drinks and minimum dudebro presence are my scene.

I run and lift weights so that I can drink wine and eat Whataburger and play Civilization on my PC guilt and consequence-free (well, not entirely. Just as importantly, as it says on my favorite tank top, "I lift weights to be strong enough to carry orcas out of Sea World.").
I’m really good at
- Cooking a shit ton of delicious Italian food for a crowd or just for two. Entertaining gives me life.
- Kicking ass at trivia. You probably didn't realize you're reading the profile of the number one person at opera trivia in Texas on QuizUp. No autographs, please.
- Buying more books than I can ever read
- Thrift store treasure hunting
- Finding the perfect GIF to respond to any situation
The first things people usually notice about me
My addiction to accessories. I'm usually clad in a headband with a fascinator and/or an opera-length necklace, just in case I get an emergency invitation to one of Jay Gatsby's parties.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - I read a lot of non-fiction, mostly history/sociology/politics/pop science/economics stuff, and I'm currently working on a few assorted history/nonfiction books, but my all-time favorite books are fiction:
- Trinity (Leon Uris)
- The Great Gatsby (Fitzgerald)
- A Thousand Splendid Suns (Hosseini)
- Jane Eyre (Bronte)
- Pillars of the Earth (Follett)
- His Dark Materials (Pullman)
- The Little Prince (St-Exupery)
- the Outlander series (Gabaldon)
- Harry Potter (Rowling)

Movies:
- Amadeus, my all-time favorite
- Cinema Paradiso
- La Vie en Rose
- Atonement
- A Very Long Engagement
- Amelie
- Moulin Rouge
- Love Actually, my guiltiest of pleasures

TV:
- Arrested Development
- Breaking Bad
- OITNB
- House of Cards
- Mad Men
- Game of Thrones
- Downton Abbey
- The Sopranos
- The West Wing
- Parks and Rec
- 30 Rock
- True Detective
- The Wire (which I'm in the middle of watching for the first time - late to the party, I know!)

Music - a wide variety. I love classical music, especially opera, but my iPod has everything from Willie Nelson to Jay-Z to Mumford and Sons to Edith Piaf to Broadway musicals and more.

Food - I'm Italian-American and have very high standards for Italian food. Otherwise I like most cuisines I've tried, but I find sandwiches to be the most overrated of foods. My go-to restaurants in Houston are Beaver's, 100% Taquito, Khun Kay, Cafe TH, Les Givral's, Melange Creperie (when it's open, otherwise Sweet Paris Creperie in Rice Village), and Cafe Pita+.
The six things I could never do without
A book
My dogs
Music
My extensive and highly curated collection of GIFs
Coffee
Wine
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Feminism and why avocados are so fucking delicious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Wining and dining at home or out with friends. As long is there is wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I provide hypothetical commentary on goings-on around the house from my beagle-basset hound mix in a deep southern gentleman's voice.
You should message me if
You want to get to know a laid-back, attached lady over a beverage.

YOU ARE NOT A MAN.

You'd be my date to the opera (I have season tickets!).

You want to meet a beagle in a lobster costume.

You have opinions about wine, bourbon, Harry Potter, the Golden Age of Television, or what the greatest GIF on the entire Internet is.

YOU ARE NOT A MAN OR A COUPLE LOOKING FOR A THIRD. NO EXCEPTIONS.
