Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Oh, where to start? I work, I am (reasonably) sane, kinda silly at
times, love to laugh and make others laugh with my often-quirky
sense of humor, can hold my own in an intelligent conversation,
even though I try my best to avoid the news (too depressing!). I am
an odd cross between dreamy idealist and cynical realist, which can
make for some interesting conversation! Fortunately, most of the
time I am able to see the silver lining instead of just focusing on
I enjoy road trips and day trips, wandering the city, going to
movies, etc., but downtime is also important.
I am funny, smart, and affectionate
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

which is weird for me, but I kinda like it too.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
lots of things, but master of none. I love languages but am not
fluent in any (OK, maybe English), I love music more than anything
but can neither carry a tune nor play an instrument (but I'd like
to learn!), I can generally engage in delicate conversations
without getting punched in the face, etc., etc.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my family & friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how to save the world, where to find the best parking space, mind
control and how to use it to my advantage, my daughter's future, my
future, what I want to learn next, how to stop thinking
occasionally and just chill, and ice cream.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
tired! Or avoiding some task around the house that I've managed to
avoid all week, because isn't Saturday a better day to do
everything? I'd really rather hang out with friends or family, go

you......and/or if you're bored. :-)
