Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I relocated back to St. Louis a little over two years ago after
spending the past few years living all over the country. College
and job opportunities have kept me traveling both domestically and
I'm working on trying new things and seeking out adventures.
Sometimes this means taking a last minute road trip and sometimes
it means ordering the weird unpronounceable item on the menu. I
suppose it is all a matter of perspective.
Looking for someone who wants to share the journey. Man that
sounded cliche....eh I'm leaving it up.
People watching is one of my all time favorite activities. I like
to make up elaborate back stories for the people I come across. I
love the stories behind tattoos and wish I had more of my own.
Chocolate & mint make me sneeze. I have a weird compulsion to
watch Jurassic Park each time it plays on tv. I hate putting away
laundry. While I'm not by any means a true outdoorsy person, being
out in a park on a sunny day with my dog will make me ridiculously
happy. I have legit career and personal goals, but I also want to
find the perfect chocolate chip cookie. See random facts are fun.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in development for well intentioned non-profits.
Balancing life in combination with an MBA program. Want to talk
about financial markets or business law? No?!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Organizing events, people, places, things, odds and ends....
Yelling at the St. Louis Cardinal's bullpen.
Hosting dinner parties.
Planning elaborate vacations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Curly hair. Genetics. Go figure.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Let me say up front I'm terrible at favorite lists so I am going to
ramble on for a bit.
I'm an avid reader. It's a constant battle at the library to get my
hands on the most recent NPR featured book.
My taste in music varies but I like to stay educated across genres
and time periods. I would leave modern country music by the side of
the road and drive away if I could. Poetic right?
Tv: I'm one of those people who becomes overly attached to tv shows
but rarely watches anything when it is on live tv. The Walking Dead
is my only exception. I can Netflix binge with the best of
Food: I enjoy all things cheese, hangover food for Sunday brunch,
quality pizza ingredients, all things Asian, language barrier
restaurants and off menu ordering. Love to cook for other people
and I'm constantly trying out new recipes.
Movies: I always feel like I should be more into this answer. I
like movies. I don't lose my mind over a new release and I'll wait
out most features for the dvd release. Although watching an action
thriller and eating milk duds for dinner is a welcomed evening.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and Friends
Ethnically inspired food
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How access to affordable housing would solve massive amounts of
other social issues.
How to replicate something I have really enjoyed eating.
My next vacation, real or imagined.
How I would manage in a zombie apocalypse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hopefully I don't have a typical Friday night, but I'm most likely
hanging out in a relaxed setting with friends. Right now I'm
anxiously awaiting the start of baseball season.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am a complete pansy when it comes to spiders. Seriously. I can
barely trap them under things. Squishing is usually out of the
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can untangle Christmas lights without swearing. How do they get
so mangled even though they sit and don't move for a year?
You are looking for someone who is genuine and comes with little
drama or ridiculous expectations.
Please move along if you are a grown man who uses text speak in
real life. Actually saying lol instead of laughing out loud in a
social setting is not acceptable.
