Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am pretty much up for anything and laid back when it comes to
making plans. My friends would say I have a good sense of humor and
joke around, but I take my work very seriously. I am a bit of a
beer geek and once it is nice out, everything gets made on the
grill. I am the type that likes to chill on a lake in NH or around
a campfire in sweats. But I can also pull it together when I need
to. For the most part, I am independent, so I don't need someone
who is going to follow me around like a puppy dog. Technology is
not something that I am very up to date on.... this past summer I
traded in my flip phone for an iPhone. And I only did that because
my flip phone gave up on life. This is really vague; I don't like
Things I can't do:
watch horror movies
sleep when it's too hot
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am originally from Mass, but went to college in upstate New York.
After a short teaching stint in Boston, I went to grad school for a
master's in school counseling. Thinking I was going to change the
world, I lived in Washington, DC for a little over a year, and did
NOT actually end up changing the world (who knew?). So I moved back
to Mass, got my feet back on the ground, and hit the pavement for
employment as a school counselor. It's been a long road. But along
the way, I have lived in a few different places and met some very
cool people. I love where I work now, so I think it was all worth
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
The more sophisticated answer would be cooking. I love to cook and
can throw a mean dinner party.
The less sophisticated answer would be that I am really good at
making awkward situations less awkward... or more awkward,
depending on who you are. One time while on a job interview, part
of the interview required me to observe a senior class. Right
before the principal showed me to the class in progress, she warned
me that the only senior class in session at that time was a sex ed
class. I rode that wave out like the best of them... and only
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have really long eyelashes.
After a few conversations (ok I mean beers), I have an accent...
although I don't think it's very bad.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Seinfeld, Arrested Development, Friday Night Lights, Dallas, West
Movies I like: Wet Hot American Summer, Old School, A League of
Their Own, Dirty Dancing, Star Wars (the old ones), A Bronx
Tale.... there are too many to pick just one. Movies I can quote
from start to finish: Tommy Boy, Anchorman, The Sandlot
The Poisonwood Bible, The Kite Runner, The Help, Radical - I mostly
read fiction, but have been getting into some non-fiction. If you
catch me talking back to the book, then you know I'm really into
I like most types of music.... I like to fist pump to 80's rock,
jam to phish, dispatch, oar, and allman bros. I can play tons of
Beatles songs on the piano and I may or may not know the dance from
the "Beat It" video by Michael Jackson.
I also love country music.
I mostly like Italian, seafood, Mexican, meat (any kind of meat),
Thai, Greek, cheese.... love cheese. The only thing I don't eat is
Indian... not really by choice though.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. good food and beer
3. lap top (finally switched to a mac)
5. my car
6. good conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to make the world a better place for young people. Since that
is a bit of a lofty goal, I will settle for just getting them into
college and encouraging them to not do stupid sh*t. (I work in an
urban high school.)
I like to know what I am having for dinner, even if it's 10:00am.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I love the Harry Potter books.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are honest, comfortable with yourself and
enjoy a good beer. I am not an idiot, just not the steriotypical,
Bostonian, 20-something. That being said, I am not looking for a
stereotypical Bostonian. It would also be nice if your neck was not
wider than your head. I have a massive family, I vote for the
person, not the party, and I work at a charter school. If you are
cool with all of that and don't have a personality comparable to a
pile of saw dust, then go for it.
