Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love trying new things - from new restaurants to getting out in
the sunshine for whitewater rafting to visiting new countries.
Closer to home, I love movies and books and hanging out with my
dog. A recent passion is fitness - I just finished a half marathon
I grew up in Atlanta and stayed here to be near my family, but I
love to travel. A few years ago, I took a month off work and
visited New Zealand and Australia, and it was the best time of my
life. This year it's Turks and Caicos and next year France. I want
to see as much of the world as I can. There's a lot of the US I
would like to visit too and hope to eventually take a long
road-trip to see a bunch of our sights.
I guess that's a good start for a summary! I'm looking for someone
intelligent and funny - I love to laugh and to make my partner
laugh. I am looking for a partner, but also for friends - most of
my college friends have moved away recently and it's hard to find
people who like to read, go to movies, and play board games.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as an industrial engineer. It's pretty interesting and I
enjoy it most of the time. I finished up my Masters last year
(after three years of going part time!) and now I'm trying to
figure out what's next.
I joined a boot camp style fitness program about a year ago, and I

I can be pretty quiet at first, but will open up after I get to
know people. I'm not a person who likes to talk just to fill

I read all kinds of books. My recent favorite is the Wool series -
I couldn't put it down! I really enjoy post apocalyptic fiction and
will even read terrible books if the world ends in them (except for
the Left Behind series, I've drawn the line there!). Favorite books
include Watership Down, The Handmaid's Tale, World War Z, Lord of
the Rings, The Stand, and some chick lit I won't bore you
I love all kinds of movies too and go to the theater a lot. I like
pretty much anything. Last year I loved The Dallas Buyers Club,
Blue Jasmine, and Man of Steel. Some favorites include 28 Days
Later, Lord of the Rings, Gladiator, Fever Pitch, and Sliding
Doors. Pretty much anything but horror/torture-porn is cool with
For TV shows, I enjoy Sherlock and The Walking Dead, plus Brooklyn
Nine-Nine, Modern Family, and Parenthood are pretty great. Some old
favorites are Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and Arrested
Development. Very excited about Game of Thrones coming back!
I mostly listen to 99.7, 105.7, and 94.1 (I really miss DaveFM) -
so 90s and pop (plus NPR). My iPod is stuck in the 90s and has lots
of old favorites like Counting Crows, Weezer, and Toad the Wet
Sprocket, but I have some new stuff too like The Killers, Ben
Folds, and Andrew Bird.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My living room - no place better to unwind
Movie theaters - I still love going like I did when I was a little
The Internet - how did we get by without it?
My car - gives me independence and I enjoy driving
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I want to do next. I like my job and my life, but I always
want to keep learning and doing.
I also keep talking myself out of getting another dog. I want one
but I don't have a yard right now, and two dogs to walk is too many
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have a lot of interests, but I'm kind of a geeky girl. I like to
read almost anything but I have a soft spot for science fiction.
I've been to Comic-Con a few times and also really enjoy DragonCon.
See my favorite books and movies for more on that. I also like
video games, mostly on my Wii or DS. I will play anything with
Zelda and I loved Portal.
