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 (live music, theatre, dance, museums, etc.), organizing dinner parties, or cozying up with a good book or movie in my condo. I got a community garden plot a few years ago and it's been fun trying my hand at 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 for a long weekend or going farther afield and checking out other parts of the U.S. for a longer vacation.

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 work to live not live to work. I lead an active lifestyle, but am an introvert in the sense that I prefer to socialize one-on-one or with small groups of friends and I also need my downtime to recharge. I am an ISFJ if that means anything to you.
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.

I am in a book club that meets monthly. Some of my favorite books include: Wild, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 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.

My music taste ranges from folk to funk to classical. Some of my favorite bands/musicians are: Lumineers, Head and the Heart, Mumford and Sons, Pink Martini, Storyhill, Patricia Barber, Shed Boys, Eric Clapton, Bob Marley, and Los Amigos Invisibles. I love dancing to 70's and 80's tunes too. Bonus points if you are willing to join me on the dance floor!
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.
my next trip.
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."

Also, I'm not interested in endless emailing. If we're both game, let's meet up for a drink or a walk.
