My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Moving back to Seattle in February, but here's my archived profile:

I came to Cody, WY for the outdoors. I work as a field biologist, cozying up to nature, learning new things, and working to keep very old things intact. I prefer to get around on my feet whenever possible. Especially after that incident with the horse last year.

My favorite romantic excursions include lying in front of a crackling fire, keying out sedges; taking long moonlit walks on the beach, contemplating marine algae; and enjoying mountain vistas while trying to keep my wildflower collection from blowing away: sojourns more fun with another pair of eyes. I've been called a plant geek but that's just a limited way of seeing. A lot of things are more beautiful the closer you're willing to look.

I love dance (doing, watching, the idea of it) and have a pretty serious contradance problem. I find dance gypsies irresistible, not necessarily as romantic partners but for having the courage to build a life around their passion. I’m looking for someone looking for a creative journey, a woman with some life experience, a joyful heart, wonder for the natural world, and wit to keep it in perspective.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Why does everyone say they can't dance? If you think that much about how you look you're doing it wrong.

Wondering how to integrate all of my interests into one career (and wondering if I really want to), and figuring out ways to make space for the orphaned ones.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Giving perspective, sincere compliments, teaching what inpires me, plant identification / biophilia, massage / touch
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Depends a lot on context... I have a wide range of interests and can be equally immersed in the flow of a dance or the complexity of a flower. One looks like shyness and the other like abandon, but they have more in common.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(could you have one without the other?)
Love of all kinds
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I'm supposed to learn from _________

Lately I've been thinking a lot about priorities and how to reconcile or choose between them, which can be an unpleasant requirement if you have two hemispheres, a heart and mind, or are human. I try to reconcile rather than eliminate, but sometimes there's no way around it.

How evolution might be behind this.

How to make life better for family and friends, and when to get out of the way.

And this: (#3 = modern love in a nutshell, #5 = designed to break your heart)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I was a bike messenger for a year of my misspent youth, but it wasn't me that ran over your toes.

Some grey in my hair over the past few years, and while I don't feel that old, I'm owning it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you're occasionally spellbound by plants and birds and rocks and things (h/t Paul Simon) and often prefer to be outdoors on a nice (or not-so-nice) day. I'm not looking for someone who shares all of my interests, but an affinity for the natural world is a given for anything long-term.

... you have passion for something beyond the technological

... there's been someone or something you've cared about as much (or nearly as much, or more) as yourself, especially if it's helped shape your career

... you don't have a favorite sports team, unless it's your kid's. Or if you do, you don't require the same.

... none of the above apply, yet you read on. Sometimes the heart has its reasons (h/t Pascal).
