I have a friend who lives in San Francisco and is obsessed with
this site. He says that he doesn't have time to cruise bars for
girls. He also considers this method a nod to the old fashioned art
of courting and correspondence. So....I'm giving it a try.
I love seeing the world and experiencing cultures outside my own. I
try to put myself outside of my comfort zone often. It's good for
I read more than the average person, am obsessed with the news, and
indulge in perfumes and cosmetics--anything ladylike. I'm pretty
independent as well.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a writer.
I’m really good at
Writing, giggling, creating, reading, playing, snuggling.
The first things people usually notice about me
My blue eyes and my hair. People say I have great hair. I'm pretty
happy with both. I am also quite tall for a lady--so people usually
notice that. And I laugh a lot, say inappropriate things at the
wrong time, and come across as rather bubbly. Don't mistake my
charm and friendliness for something it's not; I'm quite cunning.

the message--I like music a lot.
The six things I could never do without
Sunshine, hot showers, notebooks, a good salon, laughter, live
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My family. My job. My friends. Ways to make myself happy. Books I
should read but probably won't. Recipes I might want to cook but
don't know if I'll have time. Why people believe everything they
hear/see on TV.
On a typical Friday night I am
My Friday nights are never typical.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Ok, for that one, you'll have to meet me.
You should message me if
You can keep up with me in a conversation; are outgoing enough to
enjoy yourself at a party with people you don't know.; don't need

quality drink or two when the moment strikes); take your
professional life seriously; value education; value women; and dig
