My self-summary
I'm a positive, fun-loving and creative person who is just as happy staying home working on projects as going out. I love nature, music, art, books, and am happiest when learning new things. I would like to travel more and learn other languages in my spare time. My daily necessities include laughter, chocolate, music and the occasional karaoke outing.

I would love to meet a guy who has positive energy! No downer's for me--I will run from you as quickly as I can! I hope you are fun, polite, have interesting stories to tell, but are also a good listener and understand that silence can be better than being over talkative.
What I’m doing with my life
I work 9-5 in an analytical role and like sorting through data. After work I look for laughter or education on the TV set, but going to the gym comes first (it's even better if I can do both at once). Music is a big part of my life as well and eagerly wake up every morning to listen to my favorite songs. On the weekends I visit San Francisco or other new places in the Bay. I am learning to cook as well and have learned that is a creative outlet. I make some amazing chocolate chip cookies and I try my hardest to stop making them, which then leads me to eat them all. Two dreams I have in life is to write my own book and make a CD.
I’m really good at
Asking good questions.
If you like sports, I can play tennis, ice skate, roller blade, play frisbee.
I can do a cart wheel.
Take a great photograph.
Find new music.
Find new things to do.
Drink exactly one beer!
The first things people usually notice about me
If I am wearing shorts or a dress, then my legs! Strangers approach me with compliments.

Otherwise I am also known for my propensity to smile and generally friendly demeanor. I am more energetic than chill. Since I enjoy fashion, others might comment on what I am wearing since I don't follow the trends.

The six things I could never do without
music, laughter, friends, learning, vacation, coffee!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I often think about my career because I have a background in several areas and am not sure which to pursue. While I like numbers and analysis I also wish I could be in more creative field where new ideas and creativity could help me stand out.

I also wonder why I have match percentages of 90% and above with guys who never even answered any survey questions!
On a typical Friday night I am
I look for the people who are important to me and try to spend time with them wherever they may be--a concert, a happy hour, dancing, watching a movie, having dinner. It's not what you do its the company you share that matters.

When I can't find my special people...
-Either at home dead tired.
-Concert
-Shopping in downtown SF
-Dinner with whoever is available!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I missed the winning shot in a basketball tournament when I was two feet from the basket and no one was near me.
You should message me if
If you are practical, but fun, I think we could get along. If you love Depeche Mode that is a big plus! Also, you have a good sense of humor, love chocolate, are very interesting and very polite, respectful, have good taste in music and want to meet someone with those characteristics as well.

For better or worse, I am a little traditional and its nice if a guy pays on a first date. It also increases the probability of a second date dramatically!
