Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm coming off a breakup, so I'm not looking to get into anything
serious. That said, if I meet someone, and the stars align, and
it's amazing, I won't run. With the right person, I have a lot to
offer in a relationship.
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
- 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 and don't take myself too
- I love to travel but haven't gotten to nearly enough destinations
- I lived near Portland, OR for 3 years, and I LOVED it. I can't
wait to get back to the Pacific NW.
- I have absolutely no sense of direction. I get lost all the

(Apparently, a bunch of folks don't know what this is. From
Wikipedia: "Dan Savage and his readers often use the abbreviation
GGG. In his March 1, 2007 column, Savage summarized: "GGG
stands for 'good, giving, and game,' which is what we should all
strive to be for our sex partners. Think 'good in bed,' 'giving
equal time and equal pleasure,' and 'game for anything—within

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: Buddhism, 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 Mondays and
dancing Swing and Blues on Tuesdays.
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. Please don't be disappointing.
Also, I bought a hurricane spin mop after watching the infomercial.
You should message me if

Honestly, you should NOT message me if you:
- have an avoidant attachment style
- are 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.
