Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
it's ok not to know
exploration is how we grow
it's ok to not have the answer
cos sometimes it's the question that matters
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i joined okcupid because, as a very busy mom of a beautiful, active
4 year old, dating's been a bit challenging. i haven't been meeting
many single guys at all the playgrounds, birthday parties, and
playdates to say the least.
i am very happy with my life and feel extremely blessed and when i
count my blessings, i count my daughter twice. that said, i would
love a partner in crime to accompany me in this crazy adventure
also, i'm an account manager for a green tech company in boston
that helps organizations reduce their environmental footprint and
become more sustainable in general (via a SaaS platform). and like
almost every other person on here, i'm surprising myself by joining
okcupid! looking to find someone to laugh and have fun with, but
also open to something more serious if the chemistry is there.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
writing, traveling, eating, listening, believing, cuddling, giving
a damn, being regularly inspired by the world's beauty and
appreciating complexity, but also believing that love and happiness
at their best are simple...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
family, travel, writing, running, humor, hope.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
social justice, sleep, the purpose of life, how people can really
think dunkin's is good coffee, how single moms (or dads) w/o family
nearby do it, my next meal and/or if it's too early for a glass of
wine, the problem with nationalism, why dentists insist on carrying
on a conversation and ask questions when their hands are in your
mouth and you're unable to respond, how 3,000 of the world's 6,000
languages will be extinct by the year 2050 and what can be done to
change that, what technology will look like/be like in 25 years
when my daughter is my age, what a truly anti-racist, feminist,
socialist, egalitarian democracy would even look and be like on a
day to day basis...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
making homemade chocolate chip cookies w/ my daughter & then
having a dance party as we wait for them to come out of the
oven...or feeling grateful towards my parents and/or a babysitter
for watching my daughter so that i can go out for a bit and catch
up with friends, see a film, have a beer, or any other non-mom
activity to restore my balance and appreciation for, well, pretty
