Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm here to meet people who have interests and views that are
similar to mine (but who can still challenge me and my ideas), as
well as people I can have a blast and shoot the shit with. I love
to be silly and flirtatious and sarcastic, but I also want to have
intellectual conversations about things that matter. I have an
opinion on most things about which I have some working knowledge. I
am passionate about what I believe in. I love it when someone can
teach me something new or make me consider something from a new
viewpoint. With the right person, I have a lot to offer in a
I LOVE dancing. I'm pretty sure I'd rather be dancing than doing
most other things.
I would say that I'm easy going and easy to please.
I laugh easily and often.
I love to travel but haven't gotten to nearly enough destinations
I lived near Portland, OR for 3 years, and I loved the PNW.
I have absolutely no sense of direction. I get lost all the
I love dogs more than I love most people.
I am a feminist, an atheist, and an ally; my ideal partner is too.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Explaining to people why they don't need an antibiotic.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I LOVE eating. Thai and Indian are some favorites. I love anything
that is spicy.
I used to be a vegetarian, but I fell off the wagon years ago. Even
though I love vegetarian food, I don't think I could ever go back
to life without chicken wings again.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Relationships with family and friends
2. The internet/uptodate/wikipedia
3. Down time/alone time
5. Good conversation
6. Having a dog
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All the things I'm supposed to be learning, but don't feel like
Also: Mindfulness and meditation
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Some of my other nights are more typical. As long as I'm not
exhausted or working, you can find me blues dancing on
I like to go to Fox and Hound on Saturdays for the UFC Fights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't fall in love easily.
I am sick to death of dating.
I always feel really hopeful before dates even though they're
usually a bust.
Also, I bought a hurricane spin mop after watching the infomercial.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go dancing, or you have a great sense of humor, or if
you live your life by treating others the way you would want to be
You want to learn American Sign Language with me.
You want to sit on the couch and drink wine while listening to NPR,
The Savage Love Podcast, or David Sedaris reading his
Honestly, you should NOT message me if you:
- have an avoidant attachment style
- are super religious (I was raised Catholic but have happily been
in recovery for over a decade)
- do not have feminist beliefs and morals
- don't support gay rights/gay marriage
- are not pro-choice
- are in an open relationship. I have nothing against it, it's just
not what I'm looking for.
Also, unfortunately, cats are kind of a deal breaker for me- I'm
allergic, and destroying a cat also happens to be one of my dog's
major life goals.
