My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a limited edition, very rare and few were made like me.

I like to think of myself as a good person. I treat others the way I want to be treated and try and remember everyone is going through something, big or small.

I am a night owl. I'm afraid if I go to bed too early I might miss something. I am not a morning person. I've been like this since Kindergarten.

Sometimes I am too accomodating and forget to put myself first. I'm working on this.

A good song can change my mood dramatically. The more sad a song, the better. I use music to speak when words fail me.

I say please and thank you, you should too, it's polite.

I wish I could sing on key, play an instrument and dance.

I am far from perfect. I'm not looking to change, but rather be the best possible version of myself.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Always trying very hard to do more of this:

This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don't like something, change it. If you don't like your job, quit. If you don't have enough time, stop watching TV. If you're looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing the things you love. Stop over analyzing, life is simple. All emotions are beautiful. When you eat, appreciate every last bite. Open your mind, arms, and heart to new things and people, we are united in our differences. Ask the next person you see what their passion is, and share your inspiring dream with them. Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself. Some opportunities only come once, seize them. Life is about the people you meet, and the things you create with them so go out and start creating. Life is short. Live your dream, and wear your passion.

---Maya Angelou
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting lost in thought
Seeing the good in people
Asking questions
Talking to strangers
Recognizing faces
Knowing exactly what time it is without looking at a clock
Putting people at ease
Making people laugh
Procrastinating
Speaking in public
Being a good daughter/sister/friend
Staying positive --- negativity is a waste of energy
Oversharing
Dealing with confrontation
Being 5 minutes late, it's a really shitty quality, actually, but I'm good at it

In full disclosure, I should probably tell you what I'm not good at, as well:

Math, I suck at math
Waking up in the morning
Sitting still
Cleaning out my voicemail
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If we are refering to physical characteristics, I imagine it's my height, or my smile, but most often people comment on my big eyes.

As for personality, I'd say these traits are most noticeable: energetic, considerate, honest, indecisive, warm, confident and some times uninhibited.

Leaving my corporate job and joining a startup.

Inventing something

My past and future, but mostly my future

How can I live a more meaningful life

What's this all for?

Mid-century modern furniture

Am I getting enough physical contact? Studies show that there are incredible emotional and physical benefits to being touched. Touch is integral to the human experience. Want to spoon?

DIY home projects and ways to make my apartment feel more like a home

How I would really like to get a dog, but I'm not sure I have time for a pet. It seems unfair to keep a dog couped up in an apartment all day. Can I just play with yours?

How common courtesy no longer exists, especially when it comes to online dating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
How about my ideal Friday night?

You and I make dinner together, while drinking a bottle of wine, during which we have a few make out sessions. After dinner, you read a book and I work on an art project, as we enjoy each other's quiet presence.

Or

We rally after a long week and go see some live music, theatre or a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an affinity for men with beards who wear glasses and Pendleton plaid shirts.

I probably won't contact you if you have a shirtless profile picture or use LOL multiple times in your profile. I'm uncomfortable by both.

I feel sad when I see a couple out to dinner and they're both playing on their phones not the slightest bit engaged in each other. Have they run out of things to talk about? I never want to be one of those couples.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go on an adventure! Let's explore the city and other places together.

You're interested in taking a different approach to online dating. Here is what I mean, don't invest too much energy analyzing my profile to determine if we're a good match. I guarantee the only way we're going to find out if we're compatible is by meeting in person. So, if you're somewhat interested, reach out, let's hang out and do something, anything! I promise, I'm much more interesting in person and I'm pretty confident you are too.

You are a social person. Looking back at my past relationships, I've always gravitated toward shy and introverted people and time and time again, this has never worked out. This doesn't mean you have to be an extrovert. In fact, I'd rather you be somewhere in the middle, I have enough personality for two people.

You like to be on the move.

You want to see Wilco with me when they are here in December.

Message me, please. I'm tired of coming up with witty and clever messages. It's exhausting!

We have some shared interests. The older I become, the more I realize the importance of have things in common with your partner.

If you're adventurous and outdoorsy. I'd like to be more of these things. I know I've got it in me, deep, deep inside me, I just need a little help bringing it out.

You want to go estate sale shopping or you are a picker and want to take me on your next road trip.

You have a cat. Seriously. I feel like I'm missing out on meeting some stand-up dudes on this site because I'm allergic to cats. Maybe I've outgrown my allergy? Let's test it out.

You think this is one of the greatest duets. Ever.
