Hi, my name is Abby. I'm a chef in the Rittenhouse area of
Philadelphia. I absolutely love my job, and even though it's not
the most financially rewarding, I can't imagine myself doing
anything else. I'd describe myself as very driven and ambitious in
my work life. I take my career very seriously. Outside of work, I'm
entirely different; calm, laid-back, fun, spontaneous. When I'm not
working, I love spending time outdoors, weather permitting, going
hiking, swimming, grilling, going to a bonfire, biking. If I decide
to stay in, I'm just as happy curling up in a blanket and watching
a good movie or trying out a new recipe in the kitchen. I also love
spending time in the city trying new bars and restaurants. I have
an adventurous personality and am open to trying most things.
What I’m doing with my life

School of Architecture. I had convinced myself from the time I was
13 that I would be an architect, and didn't know what to do when I
realized I absolutely hated it. I left school my sophomore year and
took a year off to figure out what it was that I really wanted to
I came to the conclusion that I loved to cook, and loved it enough
that I could see myself doing it all day every day. I picked up a
job as a line cook at a local restaurant, and after I had a year of
experience, I decided to go to culinary school in Philadelphia.
I've been working in restaurants around the city ever since and
couldn't be happier with my career change.
I've held a sous chef position at a pub in center city and am
currently a pastry chef at a restaurant in Rittenhouse. Some day,
after I've had a little more experience, I'm going to open my own

I like to think I'm an excellent cook. I also draw extremely well,
which is why I attempted a career in architecture before becoming a

The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about my life, where it's going, and
what I want out of it. I try to think about how my future will be,
who will be in it, and what I'll be doing. It's fun to think about,
and a little scary at the same time, but doing it helps me set
goals and push myself.

You should message me if
Message me if you're a good guy who is looking for a real
relationship. I'm completely uninterested in casual dating and
hooking up. I'd really love to meet someone I click with and want
to give my time and attention to. I don't have a type, although I
do prefer dating men who are at least my height if not taller.
