Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My profile is a work in progress, much like me. It's been awhile
since I've revised it and it's a little too long. Or a lot too
long. But if you've got a minute, have a read. And I do hope you'll
say hello. Some things ARE worth your effort. I'm one of
I've been told I over-think things, and it's true. I'm a thinker.
It occurred to me recently (while I was thinking, of course) that
I've been over-thinking this whole dating thing. Pondering the who,
the what if's, the when. Having a preconceived idea of who I'm
looking for is not helping me meet new people. So, I'm going to
step outside my comfort zone and stop defining so precisely who or
what I'm looking for and just be open to whatever possibilities
present themselves. So, don't be shy...say hello!
Now, let's talk about me. I want to inspire and be inspired by
someone. To connect with someone on that level I've never been
quite sure existed. I want to experience that moment where your
heart skips a beat when your eyes meet. I want to share such an
intimate connection with my partner that words are not necessary
and a simple touch creates electricity. Am I a dreamer?
Maybe. But I'd like to think that kind of relationship is
I am an attorney and I spend my days immersed in law books and
cases. But if I could earn a living from star-gazing I would choose
that. My idea of a fabulous date would be just sitting by the ocean
somewhere in the dark of night staring up at a sky full of
I try to have an appropriate balance of confidence and humility. If
anything, I am too modest. I am adventurous, daring, playful, and a
good kisser. ;)
I ran two Half Marathons at the end of 2010--something I never
thought I could accomplish. It was an amazing feeling of
achievement. Unfortunately I injured my foot in 2011, so I took
some (a lot) of time off. But, I'm back running again now. I just
finished my third (and best!) half marathon on October 5, 2014. If
you want a running partner, I'm game!
My new favorite fitness activity is deadlifting. I love it. Beyond
love it actually. It gives me a great high to lift heavy things.
And I completed Tough Mudder Great Northeast in August 2014.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a work in progress and I try to always return to the mantra
"progress not perfection." I recently heard this quote by Shunryu
Suzuki-roshi and it really spoke to me: "All of you are perfect
just as you are and you could use a little improvement."
Tenacity, determination, and sheer stubbornness are what keep me
moving forward. In that regard, I subscribe to Neitzsche's
philosophy that "that which does not kill us makes us
I thrive on learning. I may be one of the few people you will find
willing to admit that I loved law school. The intellectual rigor,
the challenge, even the exams. I'd go back in a minute. Sadistic, I
I'd love to travel more. There are so many things to do and explore
in this world. I don't want to wait another minute to get
I've discovered the practice of yoga and really love how mindful
and connected it makes me feel. Now if I could only get my mind to
slow down long enough to figure out how to meditate...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking without a recipe; ordering take out when I should have
stuck to a recipe; reading a map (back when we still needed those
things); being a friend, not just everyday but when someone really
needs it; I'm also good at giving things my all, sometimes to a
A teacher once told me that she admired that I gave of myself so
freely and expected nothing in return. I hold that as one of the
greatest compliments I have ever received. I was in Fourth grade.

My eyes, my curly hair and my infectious laugh.
I probably should also write "boobs" here. :) I did win the
"Most Bodacious Ta-Ta's" award in college. Just sayin'.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As far as music goes, I really like a wide variety. I listen to hip
hop when I'm working out or running. Otherwise, it is a mix of U2,
Dave Matthews, Lyle Lovett, Dar Williams, Patty Griffin, Brandi
Carlile, Ray LaMontagne, Keb Mo, Lucinda Williams, Amos Lee, A Fine
Frenzy, Susan Tedeschi (have you heard her cover of Dylan's "Don't
Think Twice, It's All Right"? I can't get enough of that song!),
the Lumineers, Maroon 5, Sam Cooke, Johnny Cash, The Wailin' Jennys
and everything in-between. Got suggestions for iPod must-have's?
Let me know--I love exploring new and different artists and
Seinfeld is probably my favorite sitcom ever. I'm convinced that
everything that happens in life somehow relates back to an episode
of Seinfeld. I still laugh no matter how many times I've seen an
episode. I've recently started watching Mad Men and Dexter, which I
I love movies of all sorts from foreign flicks like Il Postino to
oldies like The Apartment and Some Like it Hot, to dramas like A
River Runs Through It, to comedies like Dumb and Dumber
("so...you're saying there's a chance..."), the Wedding Singer and
As far as food, I was vegetarian for 14 years. I gave it up when it
started to feel more like a punishment than a choice. But, I'm
contemplating returning to a meat free diet as I'm trying to focus
on cooking and eating nutrient dense whole foods. Kale anyone? ;)
If I had to choose, I would say my fav's are Italian, Mexican and
Thai. The spicier the better!
I don't read enough now. But some of my fav's are The Catcher in
the Rye; The Little Prince; To Kill a Mockingbird; and, poetry by
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My iPod; lip balm; a goal to work toward; intimacy; the ocean; and,

I've stopped thinking (see above).

I have an irrational fear of birds. Don't judge.
A few things I find sexy: confidence, tattoos, glasses, men with
shaved heads, intelligence, femme girls, a crisp white shirt, wit,
a sense of style and expressive eyes.
