Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a great planner (Trip Advisor is my friend) but I have no
problem going with the flow.
Weekend fun can include bbq's, a spontaneous drive to Santa Barbara
or sipping an old fashioned while listening to live music at an
intimate hotel bar. Even mundane errands can be enjoyable with the
I'll surprise you with your favorite dessert when you least expect
it. I'm not big on chick flicks, instead I'll insist on seeing the
latest Marvel movie.
If you're looking for someone who is a fantastic listener, one who
won't hesitate to show affection in public and always strive to be
a better partner then this is your lucky day!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working - I love my job, bosses, and co-workers...no Office Space
antics there, although my boss did ask me once to find his
Exploring LA even though I've been here for about 12 years. I
really need to get out of my two square mile radius more
Recently I've been taking weekend early morning walks up to the
Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook. A great way to get a workout in and
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making my co-workers salivate over various baked items I make from
scratch, most recently a carrot bundt cake.
Mailing thank you cards. (But not out of the blue. That would be
weird. "Hey yeah, so thanks for being alive!")
Waking up around 6:30-7am every day (yes, EVERY day, including
weekends) due to this pesky internal alarm clock I seem to have.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Physically - my eyes and smile. Personality wise - I’m very
friendly, genuine, positive, and put people at ease.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Misc: Having those "laugh until you can't breathe" moments. I love
Christmas; I enjoy sending out cards, decorating my tree, and
walking along the Strand looking at all the beautiful houses decked
out in lights. Buying summer fruit at the Farmer's Market.
Afternoon naps. Reading fun fiction. Discovering great restaurants.
I'd love to travel more too. Top on the list is Ireland and
Food: I enjoy all kinds but can't handle slimy or spicy. One of my
favorites is chicken cordon bleu. Does that make me old
Music: Some favorites include Florence and The Machine, Adele,
Flogging Molly, and Stu Larsen. I also dig Bluegrass. One of the
highlights of last summer was seeing Steve Martin and his band
perform at the Hollywood Bowl on the Fourth of July. I can do
without anything that's auto tuned.
Shows: iZombie, Big Bang Theory, Elementary, Suits, Agents of
Shield, Major Crimes
Movies: Fun action/adventure if you didn't already get that from my
Marvel comment above. Horrible Bosses 2 gag reel cracks me up every
time I see it, wish it was twice as long!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
GPS - I took a hike once that ended with a helicopter ride. Need I
iPod - Need upbeat workout music when I hit the gym! Plus when I
can't find anything on the radio I tune into one of my saved
iMac - How else am I going to learn about Ireland's nooks and
crannies by the press of a few key strokes?!
DVR - I'm not a couch potato by any means but I like quite a few
shows and of course being able to fast forward through
commercials...I can never watch a live show again! (Mind you this
is sometimes the opposite when I watch the Superbowl) :)
A perfect medium rare steak (filet or rib eye) with red wine - An
indulgence every once in a while. Throw in a slice of key lime pie
and I'm a happy girl.
My soft flannel sheets - Well, except for the rare times it gets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What could possibly top Haagen-Dazs' chocolate peanut butter ice
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home sipping some whiskey, unless I'm out with you. ;)

Please, for the love of chocolate chip cookies, write an email that

actually wrote this to me)
Now back to our regular scheduled program:
You are emotionally available, have time to date and are happiest
in an exclusive relationship. You consider yourself a gentleman at
Romantic gestures like pulling me in for another hug come
Your playful personality is the first thing I notice.
You are content with the children you have or if you don't have
kids you are good with that as well (having kids is not in the
cards for me).
Honesty, kindness, patience and a willingness to communicate
through the good times and bad are very important.
You accept and even appreciate my quirks. You try to teach me to
cook with abandon and laugh when I insist on following a
You envy the 80 year old couple walking down the street holding
hands and are ready to have that same closeness with someone.
