Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
FIVE THINGS ABOUT ME:
1. Originally from Chicago, I have lived in Atlanta, NYC, Rome,
London and San Francisco.
2. I love to have a good time, so whether we're in line at the Post
Office or just laying around listening to music, I'll make it
3. I turned 40 recently and it felt really good. I'm a young
41...and that's for real in the sense that I am 41 (no fibbing
here) and am all the best things about 41: Experience=wisdom,
confidence, patience, etc.. I'm a lot more fun now than when I was
25 because I'm more physically and emotionally fit.
4. I dislike the expression "settling down." I feel like I'm just
getting started in some ways, and am looking forward to making a
home with the right man and creating a family, too. Naturally or
adopting (kids and dogs).
5. I'm super loyal, honest, reliable and loving...like chocolate
lab in a dress. Will I jump up and down when you come through the
door after a long day? I just might. But don't worry, I'll play it
cool if your friends are around.
SIX MOST IMPORTANT QUALITIES I'M LOOKING FOR IN MAN:
Funny, kind, genuine, grounded, honest...and hot, steamy passion
between the sheets (EYEBROW WIGGLE).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a freelance copywriter in advertising. (But I'm a lot nicer
than most of them...usually.) Am destined for something much
greater. Some other area of storytelling/writing probably. Stay
I practice yoga three times a week and am working on a regular
meditation schedj, too.
Eating anything that's not nailed down. See at least one movie in
the theatre a week and way too many more on Netflix. During the
warmer months I love leaving even or a day trip hike. Drinks with
friends. I walk everywhere. I need more live music in my life, so
if you're into that even better.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Noticing the small stuff. Once I know you I'll make you laugh, a

2. Deep belly laughs
4. Pacific Ocean
6. Music and movies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Yoga. Dinner and a movie. A nice glass of wine with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My privates are private. Until we get to know each other properly.

Looking for the rare TRIFECTA GUY: EAST COAST brains and sharp
sense of humor. WEST COAST love of outdoor adventures. MIDWESTERN
integrity, honesty and unpretentious/regular guy-ness.
GOSH YOUR CHEST IS HAIRY AND YOU SURE ARE NICE TO ME!
(Or, here comes the bit about who I'm looking for)
PLEASE STOP, YOU'RE MAKING MY STOMACH HURT
I love to laugh and would expect us to do a lot of that. Without
that it doesn't matter how hot you are (even if you're like a
sculpted Fireman with olive skin, a five o'clock shadow and have
the greatest Labrador ever).
WHAT DOES THAT WORD MEAN?
I like smart, quick-witted guys who sometimes use words I have to
YOU CAN TELL ME ANYTHING
I like a guy who thinks emotional intimacy is one of the most
important (and fun!) parts of a relationship.
OH LET THE SUN BEAT DOWN UPON MY FACE, STARS TO FILL MY DREAM
Let's go on lots of road trips together and turn the radio up
really loud. Hiway 1 would be IDEAL, but anywhere out west could be
good. Or if you're short on time, let's zip upstate for a one day
adventure in the fresh green air.
HERE, TASTE THIS. IS IT BAD?
I've only recently started to learn to cook. I'm super excited
about eating delicious food that makes me feel strong, energized
DO YOU HAVE A MINT?
I'm a very affectionate kinda lady. I love giving and receiving
hugs and kisses for no reason.
DON'T BE LATE OR YOU'LL MISS THE DHARMA TALK
Yoga is both a physical and a spiritual practice for me and I'm a
much happier, compassionate person since finding it. Whatever you
do to stay balanced, fit and happy is your business...please just
LLOYD DOBLER RUINED EVERYTHING
As far as my "type", reviewing the men who've knocked the wind out
of me (romantically), they all look different. Generally speaking,
I like a "regular" guy more than an over-styled metrosexual any
day. A nice guy with an edge is surprisingly hard to find. I'll
take something in a "Paul Rudd" please.
BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT ME?
Guys, can I be honest? When you go on these internet "dates" ASK
THE GIRL QUESTIONS. Of course I love a man who's full of
interesting stories, and could write a 20 minute dissertation about
wheat bread. But a little curiosity shot towards my side of the
table goes a long way. It's just good manners.
