My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have unintentionally written a dating profile novella. Get a cup of coffee, sit down, and feel free to skip around.
There may or may not be a test at the end.

Like many people in the city, I am a transplant to Baltimore. I welcome any and all advice on the subject as well as recommendations on restaurants, places to visit, and of course, places to avoid.

I spent the past year traveling as much as possible, exploring, and challenging myself. I adopted a new mantra for life: "Life is short - do what makes you happy with the people you love in the places that are special," and it's made me a better person. I'm far more humble, I appreciate the little things in life, I have a greater acceptance of people, think the smallest gestures of kindness can make the greatest impact, and I feel like all of this has prepared me for whatever is next in life.

I find myself most comfortable in a new, large city where I don't know anyone, even if I don't speak the language; I'm at my best and my personality comes out. I'm at my worst when I feel like life is on pause. I'm content to be traveling and I get restless if I'm home more than a few weeks at a time.

I'm sarcastic when necessary, witty and have dry sense of humor, but I laugh at everything. Sometimes I come off as too serious; give me time to acclimate. Just be aware you'll never hear me tell a joke because I tend to be a bit indirect in that department. I am guilty of unintentionally doing stupid things. I know how to laugh at myself, so please feel free to join in the amusement. Wickedly stubborn. I'm always up for a baseball game and a beer. I'm full of useless trivia and no one will play Jeopardy or Trivial Pursuit with me anymore. I can explain things in great detail with a relevant history lesson included. I try to contain my enthusiasm for doing this and boring my friends.

I have a small, close group of friends (scattered around the world) and they keep my life interesting. I prefer quality over quantity and functionality over aesthetics most of the time. I think my circle of people probably reflect that and we complement each other well.

I love being introduced to new things and like to take a bit of something from each person in my life. Do you have an interest or hobby you want to share? I'm up for learning, participating, etc.

I'm a confidently balanced mix of feminine and independent. I have a closet full of dresses and a basement full of power tools. I clean out the gutters on my house, know a bit about restoring furniture (I owned a vintage furniture store, once upon a time), I do my own home repairs, and play guitar. I love to cook, so I hope you enjoy nights at home sharing a kitchen and meal. Yes, I will sew the button back on your clothing. No, I'm not at all offened by compliments or you opening a door for me.

Have time, will travel. I can have a suitcase packed in a matter of minutes. Where do you want to go? My best friend lives in Munich, so I always have a place to crash for a European getaway. I spent my autumn in Germany, Austria, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic. I can't shake the desire to hike the Appalachian Trail.

INTP, without a doubt.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I started running this year. I'm not particularly great or fast, but I enjoy it and I want to continue. If you run, that would be an awesome bonus. Completing a marathon is on my to-do list. Along with the running, I've taken control over my bad eating habits and am working on becoming the incredible shrinking woman. I own a mountain bike, but it hasn't seen daylight outside my basement in several years. I have plans for the two of us to become reacquainted. I started P90X recently and my body hurts in new and interesting ways.

Someone once called me a disillusioned accountant, so I'll go with that for the moment as I'm not currently playing with numbers for a living. During the day I'm usually writing or editing. At the moment I'm the editor for a company in Germany, but I also do freelance work on the side. This doesn't mean that I'm stringently proofreading this profile, though I should, clearly.

I'm also birthing a book. Call it what you want, but "writing a book" just doesn't do justice to the commitment and labor involved.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
•Board and card games
•Procrastinating about certain things
•Artsy stuff
•I can find a book store in any random town. I have some natural navigation that leads me right to them.
•Buying books - it makes moving awful
•Making tea and leaving empty mugs around my house
•Living out of a suitcase
•Not unpacking those suitcases when I get home
•Wrapping my earbuds in a secure fashion that keeps them becoming an infuriating knot between uses

Reading your profile and not writing to you. I'm shy. You should introduce yourself, even if we live far apart because I'm frequently traveling.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
•My furry, quadruped entourage
•RSVP fine point, black

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This varies on the day and mood...
•Going from accountant to something else that I find more fulfilling, which has yet to be determined.
•What time is it in Germany?
•I'm hungry, is it time to eat?
•Relocating to Europe, specifically Munich or Vienna. I don't know that it would ever happen, but I enjoy my time there and proximity to friends.
•I should go run.

My affinity for bullet points and the Oxford comma.

An important man once said to me, "Don't ever settle because you're too good for that." I wonder where that ideal match is and when he might show up. My parents and grandparents have been happily married for years. I question whether those old values and dedication still exist. While I desire an extraordinary life, I appreciate the simplicity of an older time.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
There are a variety of answers, one no better than another: writing, traveling, reading, running, napping, cooking, baking something with an inappropriately large amount of calories, catching up on television or a movie, quality time with a friend, or something else entirely.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I recently found out some friends got together and nominated me to be on The Bachelor. I've never watched the show, but get the basic idea. While I'm flattered by their interest, I'm not up for compromising my beliefs to win a semi-scripted reality show. Slightly worried that my friends think my dating life is so terrible that they need to intervene...

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You understand the value of dating one person at a time.
You aren't on a mission to find a Harvard educated supermodel who makes astonishing money. I'm a normal woman. I'm okay with this.
You don't require validation from pretentious affairs and endeavors. I'm going to like you for you, not the obscure things you find to distinguish yourself from everyone else.
You can beat me at trivia.
You're that good Catholic boy my dad keeps telling me to find, but I'm really satisfied with just the "good guy" part.
You're educated and established.
You can make me laugh and introduce me to new and interesting things.
I come with a furry entourage and we are a package deal. You are okay with this.
You have a great family.
You are up for any adventure.

If you have kids, smoke, or don't have an active lifestyle, we aren't a good match.
