My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I once had a dating novella written here, but eventually it seemed stagnant and off-putting. If you want a long read, I still have it saved somewhere.

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’m always up for an O’s game and a beer or maybe you want to explore one of the many neighborhoods. I keep making trips to DC and I feel like I never feel like I spend enough time in the city to appreciate everything there is to see and do. I’m happy to spend an afternoon or evening with a local tour guide. I’m originally from WV, but thankfully I come with an education and lacking an accent.

I have a great group of friends (scattered around the world) and they keep my life interesting. I also have an awesome family. I hope you have the same. I joke that I come with travel perks because my two closest friends live in Germany and Munich feels like my other home. I can have a suitcase packed in a matter of minutes, where do you want to go?

I spent the past few years 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 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.

As for a few random things to keep you guessing:
I once got lost in Prague, later I sang songs while roaming the streets in the wee hours of the night (totally sober). If you saw a small group singing the Bill Withers song “Ain’t No Sunshine,” odds are high that was probably me and I also seem to recall some passionate singing of “I Want to Know What Love is” by Foreigner - now I feel like I should possibly be apologizing, both to you and the citizens of the Czech Republic. I cannot be trusted alone in bookstores. I once had a stranger propose to me on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic. If you take me somewhere, I can probably find my way back there without assistance. I’m often far too serious for my own good, but laugh at almost anything. I think the quote, “Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains,” from Bull Durham is appropriate in more situations that you might immediately realize. I make addictive chocolate chip cookies. Once upon a time, I owned a vintage furniture store and occasionally it felt like I was hosting my own episodes of Antiques Roadshow. A number of years ago I had an employee argue with me that I was incorrectly garnishing an unexplained YTD from her paycheck. No, you’re reading that correctly and although you understand, she didn’t. I often wonder if she’s still confused and mad at me. I will go running right into the ocean with the enthusiasm of a small child. I cannot shake the desire to climb Kilimanjaro and 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.
Running makes me happy. Do you run? Do you want to go for a run, preferably somewhere in the woods? I'm not sure I'll ever quite adapt to road running after trail running in WV. This is my calm, collected, work out the issues in life, zen place. I don't run races, although I did verbally commit to running the Munich Marathon later this year. We'll see. I am willing to negotiate, however, so I'm perfectly happy to be outside doing something: hiking, exploring, laying in the sun telling stories.

On any given day:
Serenading the furry entourage or people around me in traffic, having random 30 second dance parties while out running (no shame), learning Nepali without context from my very loud downstairs neighbors, making the same healthy breakfast and dinner every night, making or cleaning up a random mess in my house, making friends with strangers while out and about, slowly becoming versed in Judaism because of my neighborhood, fighting the subliminal pressure from Whole Foods to become vegan.

I spent a long time trying very hard not to be an accountant. Now I'm trying to return to the world of accounting. *sigh*

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.

•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

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...
You should message me if
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.

There is a new restaurant you want to try and you need a cute, fearless female date who will eat anything.
You want to go run, climb, swim, whitewater raft, explore a new place, or _______ and are in need of a lovely, enthusiastic companion.

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