My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
The great outdoors is what drew me to Seattle almost 15 years ago. In the summer I enjoy hitting the hiking and biking trails. When the snow hits the ground in the mountains I enjoy tromping around in my snow shoes or cross country skiis. I'm not into extreme stuff, I just like being active and being outdoors. Since I'm from Chicago I can appreciate the city and all it has to offer also. I enjoy checking out cultural events (i.e. Zoo Tunes concerts, the ballet, art exhibits, etc.), organizing dinner parties, or cozying up with a good book or movie in my condo. I have a community garden plot and enjoy growing my own veggies. Zucchini anyone?!

I also like to travel and have touched most continents, including a 2 year stint in the Peace Corps in Africa, but I have so much more I want to see! My most recent international trip was to Iceland last year. What a fascinating place! I love local road trips on weekends or going farther afield and checking out other parts of the U.S. too.

I have a great life - a good group of friends, meaningful work, volunteer in my community, have lots of fun adventures on the weekends & vacations - but it doesn't mean I don't long for a companion to share it all with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My work is an important part of how I live out my values - trying to make a difference in my little corner of the planet. Having said that, a healthy work/life balance is also key. I lead an active lifestyle, but am an introvert in that I need my downtime to recharge. I also prefer socializing one on one or in small groups. I am an ISFJ if that means anything to you. I may seem reserved at first but the right person will bring out my goofy side! ;)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...being a supportive friend, being a good listener, organizing get togethers with friends. A good friend wrote this in the birthday card she gave me: "To my beautiful, strong, smart, supportive, caring, and fun friend - your'e the entire package!"
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, besides my big blue eyes, I think they notice that I'm a genuine person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I eat pretty healthy but like to splurge once in a while too. Life's too short, right? Think of all those women on the Titanic who didn't have dessert! I mostly enjoy small casual neighborhood pubs/restaurants but fine dining is fun for a special occasion. Thai food is one of my all time faves.

I read regularly and am in a book club that meets monthly. Some of my favorite books include: Wild, Native Son, Gone Girl, and Geography of Bliss.

For movies, some of my favorites are: Airplane, Shawshank Redemption, American Beauty, Princess Bride, & So I Married an Axe Murderer. I usually try to see as many of the Oscar nominated films as I can - Imitation Game was my favorite this year. For shows I've gotten into Orange is the New Black, Portlandia, Grey's Anatomy, and The Voice.

My music taste is pretty eclectic and I can appreciate everything from folk to funk to classical. Some of my favorite bands/musicians are: Lumineers, Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons, Trampled by Turtles, Pink Martini, Storyhill, Patricia Barber, Mozart, Shed Boys, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley, and Los Amigos Invisibles. I love dancing to 70's and 80's tunes too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
friends, family, hope, travel, music,....and chocolate. :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how we all look like zombies staring down at our phones all the time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Really isn't a typical Friday night...could be at happy hour with friends, watching a movie at home, getting out of town, or with you? ;)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no tattoos or piercings.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a kind heart, a sense of humor, are easy to talk to, have a positive outlook on life, know how to spell, and can send me a thoughtful intro message that includes more than "hi."

A few emails to break the ice is great but I'm not interested in endless emailing. If we're both game, let's meet up for a walk and a chat.
