Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love my job, I love my friends, and am very happy with my life.
What's missing is that special person to share it with. That one
person you want to race to call when something good or funny (or
sad) happens, that one person you most look forward to seeing at
the end (or start!) of a long day.
I think I'm a well-balanced woman, with varied and diverse
interests. I work in communications, so I like to talk and, well,
communicate. I like to meet new people and venture to new places,
and would like to share that with a partner - to learn new things
together, travel to new places, adopt a new hobby.
I like to be active. I have finished eight marathons, though it's
been a few years since my last one. Since then, I've focused more
on casual trail runs and TRX classes. I also like to try new
restaurants or cook new dishes at home, and enjoy drinking wine
(see, the running allows me to do this guilt-free). I think I have
a great, dry sense of humor and value that quality in my friends. I
try not to take life too seriously.

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

ago to be closer to family after living in DC for 16 years. In many
ways, this was an easy decision to make. It is a new adventure,
with great opportunities to meet new people and live in a new
place. In many other ways, this was a difficult decision to make. I
enjoyed my life in DC - I knew where everything was, had a great
circle of friends, was established in my job, etc. But for me, it
was beginning to feel like a rut and it was time to challenge
myself and take a chance. So here I am. So far, so good.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
adapting to new situations. I think I'm easy to talk to and am able
to fit into a variety of social situations.

in a long time. Read it! The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and
Clay. Anything by David Lodge, Richard Russo, Michael Chabon.

Project. Someday I want to be on the Amazing Race. I wish The Wire,

Why not just drop a line? :-)
