Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I really hate these things. Don't you? How stifling is "self
summary"? A person is so complex, multi-faceted, paradoxical and
I hereby resign myself to the fact that this won't be doing my
"self" justice. I'm a (sometimes too?) serious gal that seeks
happiness most. I think that's probably true of most everyone. I
love to laugh, it's an everyday essential. Brush teeth, hydrate,
eat well but not too much, laugh. The pattern that I've noticed so
far in 25 years of life tells me this is anything but simple. So, I
try to move through the peaks and valleys of this bumpy ass ride
with as much grace, gratitude, dignity and humor as is
Hey there, you. I am alive right now. (So are you. Isn't that
I am constantly seeking to be my best and strongest self. I am
pruning what is unhealthy and cultivating what is best for me and
what most makes me happy.
I am. I am. I am.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am living up to my twenty-something panicked mantra and quite
constantly ask myself what AM I DOING with my life!?
I've been out of school just long enough to start to miss it and
still feel like I am just as poor as I was when I was a 'poor
college student'. I studied theatre and now work in human
I want to go to grad school but for what exactly? I want to
continue my acting education, but I also want to teach collegiate
theatre. but maybe I want to teach high school english? And I also
want to be a doula. My life is a little nebulous in that
My next move, from where I stand now, is to move to either NYC or
Chicago and audition for a performance group called the
Neofuturists; performing in a show called Too Much Light Makes the
Baby Go Blind. Look it up, it's awesome.
But for now, I LoVERMONT. I am not ready to leave here. So, for
now, I wont.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
forging and maintaining meaningful connections. reading people.
writing. listening, truly listening. making people smile. finding
the positive spin.making it fun. Being bad at dancing when it
matters and great at dancing when it's just for fun. Surprising you
by remembering those tiny details while still managing to forget
the things you think I should have definitely remembered. IM SO
GOOD AT THAT. Losing my keys. I can sing pretty well, too.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
able to tell you that I have no "typical" friday. I AM ANYTHING BUT
typical and that is one of the best things about me. My life is
colorful and varied. But it usually involves some sort of activity
with family or friends. I like a variety of wholesome(and
unwholesome;) indoor activities but usually thirst for new things
and am almost always up for an adventure. IT'S OUT THERE!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never been in a committed relationship yet funnily enough
people have come to me for relationship advice from very early
Why haven't I? Answer:
I have fluxuated between being indifferent to and terrified of
committed relationships. I've always been keenly aware, especially
through years of gathering evidence through the stories I would
hear, that the math in relationships has to be 1 plus 1[and yes, I
AM aware of just how cheesy that sounds]. You've got to be really
stable, sure and secure in your self before you think of wrangling
another into your own life. Otherwise you might enter into a
relationship for all the wrong reasons. I never wanted to seek
validation, security, acceptance or deep affection from another
before I could give those things to myself.
(This, for a few good years, was a terrific way to stay terrified.
"oh, im not ready yet". I've learned: It's always going to be a
little scary. and I'll never BE READY. That's probably what makes
I have no idea if now "is a good time" or if it is anything I want
at all. That's why my profile says I am seeking new friends, short
and long term dating.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
1- If my long ass answers still tickled your fancy. I tend to
speak, write and think that way.
2- If you want to talk to someone that will be genuinely
3- IF YOU ARE GENUINELY INTERESTED in listening back.
It's the most important part of this whole shebang.
