My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I work (too much, probably) for an NGO where I end up traveling a fair amount. Which I love, but sometimes I think it would be nice if I could meet someone to have a drink and who knows, maybe eventually travel with. But the travel makes it hard to meet that someone, see? So I thought I'd see what this online dating thing was all about.

When I'm not working, I like good music, crap bars, planning or actually taking weekend trips, and someone who can make me laugh.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
See above; I film and occasionally photograph projects.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can sing any 80s sitcom theme song. I'm not bad at music in general - play a couple of different instruments - but admittedly, not particularly good, either. I'm good at doing new things, including meeting new people. It's keeping up with the older things, including keeping in touch, that's sometimes trouble. I also enjoy traveling, napping, Dance Dance Revolution, and listening to a good story.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a touch on the short side; people seem to like calling me "little one". I have also consumed a shocking amount of media in my lifetime (chalk it up to my wasted youth) and tend to talk and think in those terms...see books, movies, and music.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Food - I love that I live in an area of DC where I can walk to a great variety of ethnic restaurants and often do. If I had to live on anything it would be hummus and pita. But otherwise I like all kinds.

Authors, movies and music - Michael Chabon, Spellbound, Robyn, Joan Didion, O Brother Where Art Thou (and anything Coen), Michael Jackson, Boris Pasternak, Control Room, Frou Frou, JM Coetzee, Heathers, Mark Ronson, Jeanette Winterson, L'Auberge Espagnole, Ellie Goulding, Lorrie Moore, Pan's Labyrinth, and, okay, Nicki Minaj.*

Good lord, that list makes me sound at least indecisive and possibly schizophrenic.

*I think I would be remiss not to mention that I am currently obsessed with Emily Haines/Metric, and suspect that if I hear the song Satellite Mind just one more time, all will be right with the world.
**It turns out that the listening to that song fixing the world thing didn't work out as I had hoped; world still unfixed. I should have seen that coming. That plan hasn't worked out in the past.
***A good bit later, I've retooled that plan substituting the new wonderful Metric song Youth Without Youth! Here's to hoping.
****Also did not work. Might need to reconsider the power of a perfect playlist to cure the world's ills.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I am a sucker for the electric window, y'know, the period before you kiss someone where you're pretty sure that you're going to kiss them. It comes with a whole host of experiences that are also great: the warmth, the stupid grin, the good eye contact. And if it's really good, the honesty that happens in those amazingly rare moments when someone actually opens up to you, mentally and physically. Sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't. But just the connection is always a lovely reminder of one of the nicer things about being on this planet.

That's six things, isn't it?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dancing or watching Dog Whisperer/sleeping. It's kind of a feast or famine night for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Oh, there will have to be drinks for that.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like going out for dinner, staying in for dinner, and occasionally drinking and dancing.

I've never much cared for labels. But I chose this one because I am only interested in dating women.

I'm not sure if I want a relationship, although I'm not opposed to it. It's a see-as-you-go kind of thing, I think. But if I meet you and like you, I'm going to want to spend more time getting to know you, and hopefully you're okay with that.

Often, I find myself attracted to more feminine women. (What can I say, except that I am a sucker for long hair?) Still, who knows? I prefer meeting people and going from there.
