My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a 32 year old lawyer working on the Hill during the day, doing some LGBT and community volunteering in the evenings, relaxing and/or having fun with my friends on the weekends, and getting creative and enjoying the DC Burner community whenever I can.

I'm pretty passionate about my work, volunteer activities, and my creative outlets. But I really enjoy my down time. I'm an INFJ, so apparently that passion is a natural part of my personality -- as is the frequent conflict between my outgoing nature and introvert tendencies.

I'm from Massachusetts, came to DC ten years ago for law school, and now call Pentagon City Arlington home. This means, of course, that being a Red Sox and Patriots fan is in my blood regardless of how many games I do or don't watch in the season.

I'm really yearning to do some traveling. When I was in law school I spent a summer studying at Oxford and then traveling around Europe. It was incredible, especially Florence, and I'm dying to get back and explore more cities in Europe and also other parts of the world.

I'm trying to spend more time cooking at home and working out. I would really like a partner who can support me in getting in better shape and perhaps join me in doing so. Especially if that involves a hike in Great Falls when the weather is nice.

I'm really open minded but I also know what I want and what I need. Conversation is really important to me and I want someone who is a good communicator, honest, and open. I need someone who can listen, who cares and will put effort into knowing and being with me. I am busy, but I always make time for the things I want. I need someone who will do the same for me.

I tend to be type-A in my work and volunteer life, so I'm looking for someone to take the lead in my romantic life. I like to be pursued and I hate having to question where things stand. I'm looking for an assertive but chivalrous partner to pair with my modern, non-traditional style.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just started a job on the Hill working on criminal justice reform and other crime and judicial issues. After spending several years doing advocacy work with a nonprofit, I was fortunate enough to land my dream job. That being said, the hours are pretty long and the days are really intense. So the fact that I love what I'm working on, and every day I wake up knowing that I am making (or working to make) a difference, makes it all bearable. I'm learning that balance is hard to achieve. Right now I am trying to make it a priority.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Problem solving, organizing (people, places, for causes, pretty much anything), making fantastic tutus, and getting glitter everywhere.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My smile and eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite Books: Killer Angels (Michael Shaara), Walking in the Wind, (John Lewis), Elizabeth & Mary, (Jane Dunn) -- and most works about Elizabethean England, John Grisham novels, Opening Up, (Tristan Taormino) and Chelsea Handler's hilarious works.

Favorite Movies: Cruel Intentions, The Secret Garden, Great Expectations, Dogma, Elizabeth, The Notebook, Shakespeare In Love, Lord of Rings I, II, and III, American Beauty, Kiss the Girls, and I'm sure a bunch of others I'm forgetting about.

Favorite Music: Pretty much everything, even some country! My fall playlist includes a good amount of Ed Sheeran and Maroon V, mixed with some Iggy Azalea, Echosmith, Calvin Harris, and others. I really love Rihanna, Florence and the Machine, Natasha Beddingfield, Linkin Park, Metallica, Jay-Z, and lots from the 80s and 90s.

TV Shows: So I pretty much only watch tv from my DVR ... and it totally supports my addiction, including The Daily Show, The Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Masters of Sex, The Voice, NCIS and NCIS Los Angeles, True Blood, CSI: Las Vegas, Grey's Anatomy, Law and Order: SVU, Elementary, Person of Interest, White Collar, Castle, Revenge, Once Upon A Time, Scandal, HTGAWM, Downton Abbey, The Good Wife, Madame Secretary, Forever, SYTYCD, Pretty Little Liars, Modern Family, Grimm, The Mindy Project, The New Girl, Chicago Fire, Chicago PD, Hart of Dixie, Reign, Covert Affairs, Suits .... ok, that list is a little long ... I blame it on my DVR!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1 - My Best Friend
2 - Caffeine in the espresso or coffee form
3 - My iphone
4 - Music
5 - Massages
6 - My bed - it is insanely comfy!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world, policy, law, rights, creativity, costumes, and people.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Depends on the week - a long week then dinner in or with a friend then a relaxing night in. If it hasn't been such a long week then maybe out and about. Friday is definitely my relaxation night and Saturday is my party night.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I regularly look up spoilers for shows and movies because I'm really impatient and don't want to wait to see how things turn out. It actually makes me enjoy the shows and movies more when I know what is coming. Also, I am a lifelong dog person who happens to have a (quite small) cat.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You aren't intimidated by the fact that I'm bi or that I don't drink (I could care less if you do -- my bar is one of my favorite pieces of furniture and I love entertaining). Or you understand how I can be a dog person and yet own a cat. Or you get the reference to Burners and appreciate the nuances in what I'm looking for in a relationship (which is what I am looking for -- not interested in a hookup situation or couples).

You should definitely message me if you are confident, assertive, and will treat me like the princess and lady that I am. And if you made it to the end of this profile .... and you're not going to spend weeks emailing back and forth before asking me on a date.

Disclaimer -- I can take a while to write back to a message even if I find you interesting. Often I check this thing before I go to sleep or on the metro, and am either too tired or busy to send a real reply. So if you see that I've looked at your profile and haven't replied, it may just be that I haven't replied yet. And if I have replied, it's best to ask me out sooner rather than later because I can take a while to respond. That all being said, the quickest way to get me to decide NOT to respond is by sending multiple messages in a row before I've even sent one or sending a second message that criticizes my lack of response to the first. I know, you would think this is common sense, but ...
