Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is my profile where I have posted attractive photos of myself,
attempted to exhibit a reasonably high IQ through this erudite
self-summary, tastefully asserted that I am cultured and wealthy by
enumerating the exotic places I've visited, and topped it all off
with meta-commentary on the absurdity of online dating and the
implausibility of accurate self-description to prove that I am
self-aware and have a sense of irony. ready, read!
I am a confident, goofy, gumptious woman (it is still weird to call
myself a woman, but I am trying to be more than just a girl) who
enjoys food a little too much (I'm not fat, I promise!)
and counters this with exercise and road biking on the
I work for a large, public health non-profit where I oversee our
access to care and quality of life patient programs for California,
and I can only hope that I am making a difference in the world. If
I had my druthers, I would be free to play all day, go on
adventures and donate my time to a great cause instead of working
the mundane daily grind - maybe in another life I will have that
On a lighter note, you should know that I have a wealth of esoteric
knowledge and completely useless facts. Trust me. (ask me about my
stint as a Quizmaster, or Quizmistress, if you will, for a
widely known Bay Area pub quiz company).
I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being awesome, saving the world, and having a blast while doing it.
(That is OKC parlance for "you really want to date me")
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
• inventing recipes and meals out of almost nothing. I mentioned
before that I have an unnatural love for food, but who doesn't,
• being funny. I like to think that I am HILARIOUS, but I am pretty
sure that the only person I am good at making laugh is myself. My
sense of humor is somewhat dry, but you also might compare me to
Jim Gaffigan (and that has nothing to do with my
• I am also REALLY good at getting ready REALLY fast. I have been
known to sleep through my alarm and still get ready for work
(showered, teeth brushed, and dressed) in less than 8 minutes.
Skill? I think so.
NOTE: I normally wake up at a normal time.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have rather long eyelashes and at least one random stranger seems
to need to mention this to me at least once a week. Usual response:
"cool story, bro"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
almost anything by the Coen Brothers, Quentin Tarantino (his movies
have great soundtracks) or Guy Ritchie, pretty much any Will
Ferrell comedy, latin american/Spanish cinema including Amores
Perros and Biutiful.
Cien años de soledad (100 Years of Solitude), Lolita (don't judge
me for this one)
Anything by David Sedaris. I believe he's my spirit animal.
Lots of political and health-related non-fiction
reggae-rock, classic rock, rock en español, edm, indie folk,
whatever genre Milky Chance is.
P.S. I am totally addicted to my Odesza station on Pandora
ALL THE FOODS! Except for eggs, rootbeer, popcorn, bacon,
raisins and mayonnaise.
I am not sure where this would fit, but I really like TED
Talks. Would that be considered a show? I remember
watching one that totally blew my mind and I was hooked. I now
aspire to be a speaker for TED....and Radiolab podcast
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I'm listing seven
chapstick - there are no words to describe my love
for moisturized, smooth lips.
cappuccinos - I enjoy a warm, soothing beverage
any time of day. I'm also a complete coffee snob. I admit it.
a heater - I am thermally challenged. I would like
to live somewhere that is at least 77 degrees every day.
ramen - I think ramen/soup is the best type of
food. If i could live off only one type of food, it would be
soup....or sandwiches...or sashimi. Shoot, now I'm
mascara - a girl just has to look her best.
gps - even though I have lived in the bay my
entire life, I can still manage to get lost in a city I have
navigated a thousand times over.
craft cocktails and bold red wine - I feel as if I
should have more reservations about telling the people of the
interwebz about my love of adult beverages, but I figure you need
to know about how pretentious I am when it comes to libations (hope
you enjoy a good drink, too!).
favorites: mezcal, smokey/peaty scotch, whisk(e)y,
spicy cocktails, full bodied zins and cabs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
• Sleeping. I day dream about regular dreaming.
• Why orange juice tastes so much better with champagne.
• How to become an infomercial actor/spokesperson.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am comfortable staying in and watching a movie, dining out, bar
hopping, or channeling my inner child and playing mini golf. I
particularly like to go to concerts and comedy clubs, but that is
usually on Saturdays.
And sometimes you can find me blasting the music super loud,
dancing next to the roaring fire in the fireplace, and then jumping
in the pool. only to run back inside to do everything all over
again...I just realized my comment above about trying to be a
"woman" is now completely bunk. You now see what I am really like.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can rap the entire theme song to The Fresh Prince of
Bel-Air including the little-known/lost second and third
