Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
about me: thirty-one and super on my shit. girlie to the core, with
nerves of steel. fiercely loyal and fiercely lactose intolerant.
opinionated, giggly, hard-working and--as my bff of 15 years will
verify--an excellent cuddler.
my life and ambitions: in my work life i'm a social worker--i
always knew i wanted to be one, and i feel fortunate to spend my
days helping some of the people in nyc who need it most. outside of
work (because that is super important), i have a group of friends
who i absolutely adore, practice pilates, read, attempt to find the
new and slightly unknown corners of nyc/brooklyn, and consider how
to blog or write a book about the stories i’ve gathered in the last
10 years without saying whodunnit—then realizing no one would ever
believe they were true. the only thing missing is a man to share it
a brief history of my life: born awesome. raised awesome. grown
but seriously: i grew up in connecticut, spent ten summers at camp
ramah as both a camper and counselor. i came to nyc for grad
school. since then, i've been working my magic in the city hospital
my perfect first date: you bring plenty of your own stories but
also are eager to hear mine. we find ourselves laughing more than
we'd expected. we both feel there's chemistry, and look forward to
i'm looking for: a jewish man (not religious, but
culturally/spiritually connected to judaism) happy in his own life,
who--like me--is just seeking someone to share it with. someone who
is looking for someone to come home to at the end of the day, who
wants to sleep in on saturday mornings together.
my ideal relationship: i am looking for a partner, someone to build
a life with. in my ideal relationship, we have just as much fun at
the flea market as we do out with friends later than night. we
listen to each other--really listen--and work hard to honor and
recognize each other's best interests. i want to be loved and doted
on (and to love and dote on you), but also valued for my brain. i
am looking for someone who challenges me and supports me as they
my past relationships: let's just leave those in the past, shall
we? that's easily third date material...
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
fixing the world, one day at a time...and looking to find continued
balance in my life outside of work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
1. handling an uncomfortable situation in a comfortable way
2. making lists & checking things off of them
3. people watching and making up stories/playing games about what
their life may be like
4. making people (and myself) laugh
