Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to San Francisco almost four years ago for work, and find
myself loving the city more and more every day. I’m originally from
the Midwest, but moved here after spending 7 years in
I love to travel. I've been all over the world and have every
intention on continuing to visit more incredible places whenever I
have the chance. It's not just about the places you go, but the
people you meet. I know I'm a better person from the people I've
encountered on my travels, even those I met only briefly or thought
didn't affect me.
At home, I like to go out and have a few drinks and great
conversation, explore the city, relax at the park, take a trip to
wine country even the occasional "over the top night." I have a
great group of friends and weekends nearly always find us together
either finding a new event or festival, exploring a new restaurant
or bar or generally getting up to no good.
That said, I also like to be able to relax and just enjoy a quiet
evening vegging at home. I LOVE to cook and lately have been know
to cook for large groups of people totally on a whim.
I've also gotten really into the gym lately, but it's by no means
an obsession. I also just started taking cello lessons.
I work an 8-5 professional job and while I used to say I’m very
career focused, I’m also at a point where I want to spend more time
working to live and not living to work. None of this is to say that
my career is unimportant to me or that I don’t intend to continue
to climb the corporate ladder and all that… it’s just that I’ve
caught myself being so consumed by career success that I stop
enjoying life. I also used to be a big time politics junky, and
still try to keep up with what’s going on, but I’ve gotten so
exhausted by the endless back and forth and general stupidity of
our politicians that it’s not something I focus on as much as I
once did. Although, I did go door to door in Reno for the Obama
campaign to help him win Nevada and it was an incredible
I'm always willing to learn and try new things... everyone has
something to teach us right? And of course, I'm always happy to
teach about what I know. That said, I'll admit to being a bit
stubborn unless I'm shown hard facts and data.
I'm super type "A" and pretty ADHD, which means a few things: 1. My
ambition sometimes gets in the way of appreciating the small things
in life, 2. I get really put off by people who don't take
responsibility for their own lives, 3. I am a bizarre mix of super
extroverted and shy and 4. I tend to be too aggressive and honest
about what exactly I want (which can change pretty frequently). I'm
also pretty steadfast in my beliefs but I love being challenged.
I'm an ENTP.
Also, I love science. I was the kid who took things apart and
almost burned down the house trying to build 'experiments.' I'm
driven by data and facts and things that can be proven. However, my
educational background is decidedly NOT in science and it was only
recently, after dating a scientist to be honest, that I realized
just how much I'm drawn to it. I've actually debated taking some
science classes at a college in the City just for fun. Take me on a
date to Night Life at Cal Academy and you'll totally win me over!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now just trying to enjoy the city and taking time to stop and
smell the roses and meet some great new people. I really need to
get up to Tahoe more often than I do, and am planning to get my
SCUBA certification sooner than later.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Debating for hours. Finding middle ground. Finding an adventure in
the seemingly mundane. Plotting how I plan to survive the Zombie
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My willingness to say whatever is on my mind. Or perhaps that
despite my job in PR, that I can be totally politically incorrect!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food: Sushi, or a great steak and of course, wine.
Movie: Goonies is my all time favorite, and I'm also very partial
to Empire Records. That said, I'm a huge horror movie junky. Also
really enjoy Sci Fi.
Books: Don’t judge me that recently I’ve been reading way too much
young adult fiction! I blew through the Hunger Games books in 3
days and polished off all the Sookie Stackhouse novels, finally got
around to reading all the Harry Potter books and am just starting A
Song of Ice and Fire. I also love Dan Brown, read all of The Girl
Who [Verbed] the [Noun] books, Classics, even some History or
bizarre theory books.
Music: Huge 80's fan. Also, love anything with a good melody and
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Caffeine, intelligence, passport, great friends, motivation,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything! I think way too much. You name it, I've probably
obsessed about it at some point.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Who knows?! Often I'm just relaxing at home after a busy week. But,
I could be at a work function or out and about. Friday's are sort
of my "I've just got to see" days.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a hopeless romantic. Yeah, I try to be all ambivalent when it
comes to meeting a great guy but aren’t we all kind of hoping to
meet Mr. Right?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a great guy looking to meet like-minded people. I’m really
looking for someone with a good head on his shoulders. Someone who
has a passion for life, a sense of adventure and the ability to
have a deep conversation but can also be totally goofy at times.
Please be serious, but don’t take yourself too seriously. Be stable
in your life and not into all the typical drama and trauma.
