Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m an east coast girl displaced in paradise. I grew up outside of
Philly, lived in Manhattan for several years, and relocated to LA
about a year ago.
I love to explore—whether it’s traveling across the world or
checking out a hole-in-the-wall down the street.
I have a sense of humor and so should you. While I am begrudgingly
a grown up by day, I'm a kid at heart. I work hard, but I always
look forward to doing something fun at night and on the weekends.
INTP, but not (too) socially inept.
I’m into bourbon, and I love board games, particularly Risk. I read
the NYTimes. I dislike cats and drama. I tend to wear black, but my
apartment is mostly white. I don't think I understand
I probably won't be impressed by the money you make or the weights
you lift, but I'm always down for some good intellectual
conversation. So, if you think that spending a Saturday afternoon
at a brewery talking about something other than celebrity gossip
sounds like a good time, we might be in business. Just keep in mind
that I hate pretension, so please leave that at home. But please do
bring some seltzer (see below); that'd be awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m an attorney, and I love what I do.
I graduated from law school in 2012, and after spending two years
clerking for judges, I recently started at a firm downtown. (Bonus
points if you know what a law clerk is).
I do serious work, but I don't take myself too seriously, and I
always carry a work-hard-play-hard attitude. My only complaint is
that my schedule is too weird to get a dog. Please let me know if
you would like to walk my future dog. Thanks.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pretending to be good at things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm short. I'm about 5ft tall.
Also, now that I live in LA, I am told quite frequently that I look
like "the girl from Modern Family." To be honest, I don't really
see it, and I'm relatively certain that I'm about a decade older
than she is. But hey, OKC asked what other people notice...

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Dry, witty humor
(Yes, I am aware of the fact that I only listed five things.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why seltzer—which is apparently just called "sparkling water"
here—is so expensive and hard to find on the West Coast. All I want
is this stuff: http://www.vintageseltzer.com
. Please let me know if
you know how to obtain it in LA. Seriously.
You should message me if
