My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
on two separate occasions this site suggested me as a match for myself. so i finally figured i'd give myself a shot. things didn't work out, so i broke up with me. it wasn't pretty. but now i'm back, giving this crazy site another go.

i'd love to meet someone who wants to go grab a cup of coffee, sit out in the park, wander around aimlessly*...something that involves conversation and getting to know one another. no sparks? let's be friends. date #2? even better.

i won't lie: i tend to be a little on the shy side at first, but that usually melts away pretty quickly, especially with someone i feel a connection with, romantic or otherwise. and then you can't shut me up, for better or for worse. (worse.)

i'm random & sarcastic and make appropriate jokes at inappropriate times, and inappropriate jokes at appropriate times. i'm kind of a dork and i appreciate other dorks. (anyone up for a bsg or doctor who marathong? mst3k?)

*this will not happen on hot summer days because i am canadian-blooded and summer makes me melt.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
came to miami after about 7 years living in nyc where i worked as an editor and social media strategist for a travel magazine. moved here to work in public relations and social media, but recently returned to my true passion, publishing, and am back to writing and editing for a travel magazine.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- being inappropriate
- making people laugh
- listening/giving advice
- speaking with a minnesotan accent (this is a skill that is under-appreciated but has proven to be pivotal in getting me to where i am in life*)
- i also really enjoy purposely misspelling like-sounding words. (czech instead of check; thyme instead of time; suite instead of sweet...you get the idea.) yup. i do that. hi.

* no it hasn't been

food: i'm pretty adventurous with food, and will try just about anything once. (to date, duck tongue is probably one of the strangest so far.) day to day, i'm especially fond of mexican, thai, and italian. would love to meet someone to introduce me to things i've never tried before.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. friends & family
2. my phone
3. netflix instant
4. ties. both of the regular & the bow persuasion.
5. fans. both the adoring and electronic wind-making kinds. it's hard for me to fall asleep without the latter.
6. my cat. leave me alone. i'm not a recluse. (or a lesbian.) he's just cute and we spoon at night. go away. (come back!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how cool it would be to have superpowers. lots of them. god-like superpowers. i don't like to limit myself and if you think that's a bad thing, i shall smite you.*

*smiting will occur upon acquisition of said god-like superpowers. please be patient.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
it depends. while i do love a good night out on the town, i can also be a bit of a homebody, and i'm okay with that. though i admit: it'd be nice to have someone to be a homebody with. my ideal night "out" is actually a night in, watching a good (or awesomely bad) movie and cooking/eating a good dinner.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
people who don't know the difference between "your" and "you're" drive me crazy. this also applies to: there, they're & their, and to, too & two. i will point it out if you misuse any of them, and you will probably get annoyed, but i will continue to do so. sorrynotsorry.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
- you read my profile and laughed. or smiled. or thought about laughing but couldn't because you were in public and you didn't want people to think you were crazy and/or drunk.
- you've got a good head on your shoulders & you're smart. (but not too smart; i don't want you to make me look stupid.) also, if you know how to just let loose (take your top off and shake your twins!), that sure would be swell.
