My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
UGH the dreaded self summary. It's not so much that I can't summarize myself but more how to keep it from sounding like a sales pitch..."Not your average full-size chick, with a 5-star rating and a few degrees to boot, 5'3 frame, soft interior with extra trunk space...(insert speed talking fine print here...)"

Let's face it you don't really care about most of the stuff I could write, so here is the short version:

I'm youthful but mature (that is I have the enthusiasm of a 20 y/o; I look like a 30 y/o; and I think like a 40 y/o)

I bring a lot to the table but am mostly interested in a genuine connection (a friend/lover/partner kind of thing), so for me, life experience and common sense weigh more than education; and kindness and honesty trump most everything.

I'm on my second career so I don't fear change, hard work or starting over.

If I trust you I will believe in you and what you do or want to do. Your dreams matter to me too.

I don't need someone joined at my hip or a mini-me, you have your interests and I have mine; if we share some interests great! Regardless, we both just need to be open, honest and sometimes willing.

I reply seldomly because my time is limited and I get a lot of ridiculous messages. Genuine notes get replies.

If you are rigid in your beliefs and have no tolerance for opposing views we aren't a good match (rigid with tolerance feel free to apply).

I am incurably curious about everything and everyone. I can be a bit geeky (or is it nerdy)...in any case, I love to learn and experience new things, and to see the world through perspectives different from my own.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
School, school and work and in between that making new and good friends, exploring Colorado Springs, Rocky Mountain Whiskeys and my new life here.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
*Kissing and giving hugs (so I've been told)
* Making people feel at ease.
* Getting to the heart of the matter.
* Seeing the positives in any situation.
* I make a great tomato sauce from scratch and rustic pies both savory and sweet.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Recently on a first meeting my friend's brother said that I haven't any idea how really cool I am...if that was the first thing he noticed that would be pretty cool, however it wasn't.The first thing he noticed is that I am, as he put it, "sexy and tiny" (short). All of it made me smile!

My new friend notwithstanding people usually comment on my smile, my eyes or my complexion. But I am sure they can't help but also notice I am a pleasant, round, brown girl.

Apparently, I am prettier than my pictures. Not sure how to take that....
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Alchemist is my favorite book but closely followed by Watership Down, LOTR, The Hobbit, Girl (yes by Kevin Taylor..what? It's a book!), The Alienist, White Teeth, Mount Misery, Submission, The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, ...anything by E.E. Cummings, Nikki Giovanni, and Henry David Thoreau...

I don't watch much TV but I love HOUSE, CSI, Bones & Law and Order, Star Trek, Through the Wormhole and Inside the Actor's Studio... I am newly addicted to Being Human, The Big Bang Theory, Sherlock and Downton Abbey.

As far as movies: I loved LOTR, HP, Great Expectations, Waking Life, Watership Down, Matrix, Underworld, The Truth about Cats and Dogs, The Human Stain, Crash, and Eat, Pray, Love, almost anything animated...

Music: I listen to everything from Live to Drake to 3 Doors Down to Vivaldi. I am probably particular to alternative rock and pop alt. I am loving Lake Street Dive, The Fray, The Calling, Leela James and Maxwell lately.

I enjoy theater, opera and ballet

My favorite food is Indian or Middle Eastern followed by Thai, Italian, Caribbean and Southern in no particular order. I'm a pretty good cook but want to take cooking classes someday...maybe a chef's boot camp? Oh and I love Pinkberry!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Some things go without saying (God, friends, family & lotion) so I am picking 6 other things...
1) Lip gloss
2) Kissing & Laughing (they really do go together honest!)
3) Cell (even if I don't answer it lol)
4) Learning
5) A plan with an escape route
6) Something sweet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...Ways to survive my PhD program and possibly make it enjoyable...it's thesis developing time...

...how people distinguish "overweight" from "obese" visually...What?! It came from an OKC question...honest

...the possibilities of finding someone to compliment rather than complicate my life.

...my next trip to NYC

...The how and where of living abroad someday.

...What's next? What I need to do to be the person I want to be. I am always working on myself in one way or another.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Catching up on school work or dinner/drinks with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you can see that I visited your profile it's an invitation feel free to send a note.

I'm more traditional than I like to admit so you get points for reaching out first.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open to making new friends or looking for a lease with an option to buy...
