Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So clearly my name is Marissa if you hadn't figured that one out. I
would describe myself as dedicated, hard working, athletic, high
energy (when I'm not swimming all of the time), loyal, and
intellectual. I have a nice balance of being a complete and utter
dork and going out and having fun with my friends. I love dancing
and I need a man that can keep up in bars and clubs. I would love
to travel the world in the future. I am looking for someone to
challenge me intellectually. I am pretty independent and would like
someone to be able to allow to me make my own decisions and support
me in them. I care greatly about my friends and would do anything
for them. I am loud in all aspects of my life (love neon, I have a
loud voice). I might be shy at first but usually not and I'm
actually pretty blunt and say what's on my mind. If I put my mind
to something I have always obtained it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Student at the University of Houston. Just admitted into UH's
Pharmacy School so I am pretty pumped about that. I am retired now
from the UH Swim team but still exercising for fun.
I am originally from Michigan but I love it down here in
I am currently just living life and seeing what it brings me!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to people
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My hair, my eyes, and my outgoing personality!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
TV SHOWS: HOUSE, Grey's Anatomy, Alias, Breaking Bad,
MUSIC: House, Pop, Rap and Hip/Hop, Top 40, Stuff I can dance to,
and maybe a little country (it is still growing on me!)
Books: Anything that has to do with people and drugs - I liked to
read about how people mess up their lives with drugs so I would
have never tried any of it.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My phone - Friends are always trying to contact me. I would be
lost without it.
4. Laughter and Humor - I love laughing and most times once I start
laughing everyone around me laughs. This is not because whatever I
was laughing at was necessarily funny, they just laugh at how hard
I'm laughing and the noises I make.
5. My contacts/glasses - have had glasses since I was 4 and a half.
I still remember finding out I need glasses, not a good memory but
now I embrace it.
6. Working out - my way to get rid of stress as well as you feel
better about yourself when you work out. People who don't workout
at all don't really care about themselves. I'm not saying crazy
amounts that I do right now being a college athlete but a couple of
times a week.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
School - number one priority (and my future)
My friends - helping them with their problems
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends, going to bars probably in midtown,
studying, or relaxing trying to unwind from the week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have yet to meet a guy who is up to my standards. Maybe you will

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Have found me interesting, someone you can potentially get to know
better, you have a good head on your shoulders, have goals and are
very driven, intelligent, are not obsessed with drinking but likes
to go out and have a good time, and likes dancing, oh and you can
challenge me (I don't want a guy who is so nice that allows me to
walk all over him), sensitive but probably wouldn't openly admit
