Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love dancing, dogs, and detente.
My New Year's Resolution: to work and play harder. This includes
more time on the dance floor, gym, and local pubs. It's working out
pretty well, despite a few literal and metaphorical stumbles. Go
My age is misleading. Most people think I'm about 27 because I look
that young, am highly animated, and exude playfulness. If we only
do life once, why take it too seriously? Tickling war,
Some of my favorite things include greeting every dog I encounter,
playing in the sun (esp with a beverage that comes in a pineapple
on the sideline), giving and receiving massages, and having fun
with friends. Spontaneous gatherings, Twister, playing in the snow,
and good old fashioned fun top my list.
A former roommate said that I lack guile. If you prefer games of
coy, gambit, counter-ploy, then I wish you well with your search; I
suck at that strategy.
If you enjoy smack talk, sarcasm, passion, brainiacs, and
randomness, keep reading. I am iconoclastic, a chocoholic, and one
One last thing: I have no idea why OKC classifies me as "much less
progressive" than the average woman my age. Politically, I'm quite
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently editing textbooks and translating geek speak into English
while I work out a career change. I'm interested in making software
and gadgets more user-friendly. I've also volunteered on political
campaigns, observed polls, etc., and of course, I dance…a lot.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding connections between seemingly unrelated things, solving
puzzles, word games, trivia, and most things geeky (note to other
geeks: I am extroverted!). My enthusiasm infects others once they
realize I'm not a nut. Pets love me - esp dogs. I love my life; now
I'm looking for a hot, fun, travel companion who enjoys a good
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am one unique, complex and passionate individual (in a good
way), I look much younger than my age and better than I do in my
pictures (some of us just aren't photogenic). I also overuse
parentheses and ellipses.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
3. An intellectually engaging job
6. Dancing! (Ballroom and Latin especially)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
1. Public policy
2. How to get more women into leadership roles
3. The divinity of chocolate
4. The power people ascribe to religion and religion's political
power as a result
5. How absolutely wonderful the Muppets are (especially
6. How weird people are (thank goodness!)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Friday nights are for dancing! Saturday nights vary.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Actually, I'm a pretty open book. The most private thing I'm
willing to admit here? I have very vivid dreams. I once dreamt that
I was a chain smoker. I could feel the smoke in my lungs, smell it,
taste it. My first thought after waking up was that I needed a pack
of Marlboros. After several minutes of debating where to obtain
them (shorter walk or cheaper price), I remembered that: 1) I don't
smoke; and 2) I've never even tried it; 3) Moreover, I find
cigarette smoke loathsome and disgusting. I decided NOT to ask what
Freud would say.
