Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Looking for a sweet, down-to-earth guy who makes me laugh. And who
enjoys wine :)
My friends describe me as kind and caring, motivated and
inquisitive. I love to check out new exhibits and plays, and catch
new movies (and old ones, too - I have seen The Usual Suspects and
Muppet Treasure Island about 10 times each!). I also play pick-up
field hockey with the old folk, where we try desperately not to
Im passionate about politics and international affairs, and I'm
very lucky to be able to work in the field that I love. I love to
travel and explore new cultures. I was a Peace Corps volunteer in
Morocco, so I've "roughed it" before, and now am very content with
the nicer things in life :) That being said, I'm equally
comfortable hiking in sweats, dressing up for a night out, or
relaxing at home with a movie and take-out. My family and friends
are the most important thing to me.
I'm looking for a guy who has an intellectual side, as much as a
goofy one. Someone who I can grow with, who challenges me, and who
supports my ambitions and passions. I want a guy who's ambitious,
compassionate, caring, and kind. I'm attracted to well-mannered,
educated men. And if you can make me laugh, that's pretty much the
icing on the cake :)

I laugh a lot. If I think something is really funny, you'll get a
chortle out of me. And my curly hair.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with friends, seeing a movie, spending way too long at
happy hour (is there such a thing?), elongated dinners that turn
into drinks at a friends house, usually something low-key.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to have intellectual conversations as much as seemingly
unimportant conversations (the most important?) about the new
British royal. You share a love for the Sunday Times, brunch, and a
great cup of coffee (but only if you let me take the first stab at
the crossword!). And you like nerdy games like scrabble, as much as
playing tennis or squash. Oh, and I really like guys who take the
initiative, so send me a message :)
