My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Recently moved to Seattle from DC. (I "did it for love" as they say...and well, we know how that story ends) I was an east-coaster for 12 years but the transition to the west coast is something that I needed. (Though slow drivers in the left lane irritate me and at any given time I am the fastest one on the highway) I am originally from Texas and still miss it. I am still known to use the words y'all and fixin and tend to air on the side of big hair.

I love the urban life and enjoy trolling around the city. My favorite thing is to get up early and go for long walks while the city is quiet. (Just me, the homeless people and the avid runners) I am used to the hustle and bustle and can sleep through most alley fights and police sirens. I like being able to walk to a bar (I like my IPAs), a grocery store (as long as I do not need a gallon of milk), a thrift shop (I love scoring unbelievable treasures) and a 24 hour convenience store (hey, I like my convenience). That’s not to say I don’t like rural life. I like to go on hikes, don’t mind camping, love chilling on a dock at the lake and I am totally capable of going days without a shower or makeup and know how to eat cereal without milk.

I like to work hard but also play hard. My integrity and loyalty are very important to me. I have surrounded myself with wonderful, lifelong friends. I can be neurotic about some things: punctuality (I mean, I only go to the movies for the previews), my email Inbox (if you got 100 email a day, you would be too) and closet organization (have to be when one owns 60+ pairs for shoes). I can hang with the boys (I probably cuss too much) but can also be quite girly (steady hair and pedicure appointments). I am known for laughing…mostly at myself. (The older I get the more and louder I laugh) I can be quite a klutz; I have a couple of war wounds from my equilibrium problems. I was once told that I have 'biting sarcasm' and I took it as a compliment. I suppose I will also admit to being somewhat sassy and slightly bossy.

I like paint by numbers (I have the right amount of OCD for it), people watching (from a bright sunny patio), day drinking (on that same bright sunny patio), going to baseball games (I miss my Nationals), checking out live music and awesome venues, a good Irish bar, board/card games (I have been playing UNO for many years, friends), museums (I am a history junkie), driving my Jeep (fast), BBQ anything, fishing (I do know how to put a worm on the hook and everything), traveling (anywhere and everywhere!) and boys with beards, baseball hats and tattoos (I mean come on, that is why I am on this site).

I am looking for someone to challenge me mentally and physically. I want to find a co-explorer and adventurer. There is so much I want to learn and experience so let’s do it together! I need someone I can trust….super important to me and honesty will get you a long way in my book. I like responsible people but don't need someone so serious. I usually pass on the ‘class clown’ types and prefer quick wit and an endearing personality. I firmly believe in mutual respect and understanding; I am not perfect and I need my guy to realize he isn’t perfect either. (Well, unless you are Ed Norton…I am pretty sure he is perfect) I love my family and they are a part of my life and prefer someone to enjoy those moments with me. And I totally don't mind dating someone with kids but you can't write me off simply because I don't have any of my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Living large and enoying it! I am happy with where I'm at in my life and but I am also in constant search for the next challenge and adventure. I swirl around in the government contracting world. I work for a good company and with some great people....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Noting the obvious and being slightly sarcastic about it.
Driving my badass Jeep. I WILL run you over.
People watching with quippy commentary.
Making pop culture references in my conversations.
Not going to bed early; I am a night owl.
Getting sunburns...my freckles love it.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have been told that it is my smile and eyes. But I like to think it is also my humor and intelligence. I can be kinda shy when people first meet me (though my friends would argue this description of myself) but you would probably never know it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I feel like this section is better served in good conversation (and can be a long list of things) but here is a summary:
TV: Vikings (hubba hubba hubba), Six Feet Under (I love you, Nate Fisher), Happy Endings, Boss, Californication, Girls, East Bound & Down, Boardwalk Empire, Hannibal and anything on the History channel.
Movies: Shawshank Redemption, Fight Club, Rocky (and God forbid if I hit a marathon running on TV), Casino, The Hangover, Breakfast Club (it's my era), uh, and anything with Ryan Gosling.
Music: Keane, Snow Patrol, Gotye, Depeche Mode, Death Cab, KoL, Katy Perry (yeah, sorry, you will just have to suck it up), Linkin Park, Muse, Phoenix, some rap and never country!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Diet coke, android, sunshine, lip gloss, music and my DVR. And let's be honest, I can totally do without these things but just prefer not to!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...how to empty my head of the 1,000 thoughts that are swirling around in it.
...if Ancient Aliens really existed.
...how I learned to type without a single typing class.
...and oh yeah, world hunger, poverty and the health of the Nation
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I don't have a go-to Friday night. I could be at a chick flick with my sister. I could be sitting at the bar at my local. I could be on a weekend trip to the beach. I could be on the couch watching the History channel. I could be trolling the popular city spots with my girlfriends. Or sometimes, I just sleep...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a variation of a beard! I love them!

You are really are looking for something more and don't play games to get it. Just be upfront about what you are looking for.

You can handle a slightly bossy and yet thoughtfully sweet woman with a healthly dose of sassiness. I don't do well with super nice guys.

You have the time to actually give. I'm not needy but I can't deal with someone who is always too busy to hang out.

You have interesting things to share and show me. Sharing and doing fun things together will make me like you more.

You can deal with a girl that is not a size 2. I rock with what I got.

And...you aren't married or have a significant other. The power of google makes hiding this difficult. So don't try that game on me.
