Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One of my hobbies is trying to find places where I can't see a
single sign of human influence. This is pretty hard to do, since
even if you are out in the middle of nowhere you're probably
following a path or a trail. Also, there are powerlines in remote
places, and fire roads as well. I've succeeded a few times, though,
and it's always been worth it.
More concretely, I'm an RN at a local hospital. I'm a volunteer EMT
with a local department. I play the viola and violin and have been
finding opportunities lately to play more often.
I'm finding that my life just keeps getting better, and I can't
wait to see how it turns out.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm an RN on a cardiac floor, mainly taking care of patients who
have had open heart surgery. I don't always love my job with
sunshine and butterflies, but I don't dread going to work every day
and I'm excited about the opportunities this career opens up. Also,
the flexibility of working only 3 days per week is pretty
I spend a lot of time with friends. I think it's important to work
at relationships and not take people for granted, so I invest in my

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm a fantastic baker - specialties include cheesecake, brownies,
chocolate mousse, banana bread, and apple pie. I can walk up
mountains with a heavy pack on my back. I can name all the
countries in the world. I think I'm pretty good at my job, which is
a nice feeling.
I'm bad at telling non-punny jokes.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Anything by Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, Douglas Adams or
Ann Patchett, the His Dark Materials series, and many more. I've
been reading the Discworld books recently.
Shows: Sometimes I watch Grey's Anatomy just to make myself angry
at how inaccurately the nurses are portrayed. Firefly, Sherlock,
and Doctor Who are other shows I enjoy. Kara Thrace is my spirit
animal. When I was in nursing school, I spent much of my
TV-watching time watching every episode of every Star Trek series
(yes, including Enterprise). I regret nothing.
Music: I'm on a bit of a bluegrass kick right now and recently
discovered blues/roots. Tab Benoit, Lumineers, Hoots and
Hellsmouth, Old Crow Medicine Show, and The Devil Makes Three are
my current jams.
Food: I'm partial to delicious food. If it's not delicious I
probably won't like it, but I'll still eat it if I'm hungry enough.
I need somebody to teach me how to prepare delicious vegetables.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine, stories, laughter, curiosity, dessert, and family
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How our experiences and environment shape our perspective and
personalities. For example, how much of my world perspective is
shaped by my formal education, how much comes from my
experiences/culture, and how much is shaped by my wanderings
through the internet? How would I be different if I had been born
in a different country? A different era? Into a different
How to keep the wide view and remember that in the end we are all
in this together, huddled on a lonely rock hurtling through space.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
This is probably the worst question on this profile. How to answer
it? Do I try and make myself sound exciting (I go skydiving every
Friday after work!)? Do I answer it honestly ("Friday" changes
every week because I work random 12-hour shifts)? Do I say what I
would ideally like to do (chill in a bar, laughing and talking over
some beers)? Or do I say something coy (ask me out and see what I
Nevermind on that last one. If there's one thing I'm terrible at,
it's being coy.
Now I've been sitting here thinking about the word 'coy' and it's
lost all meaning. coy. coy coy. coy. Sounds like the name of a
piece of Ikea furniture, or a sound a bird might make.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

My idea of a perfect bar is one where everybody is wearing hiking
boots and the beer is served in mason jars.
