Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an out-going and caring person. I am looking for that other
person to compliment me. I love playing tennis
, going to the movies
, dining out
, good conversation
, a good cup
of coffee, and people with a sense of humor
I am a teacher. I love my job. I am looking for someone who is
passionate about what they do, and is driven by his goals and
hopes. I believe that honesty is the key to any good relationship.
I am tired of all the day to day bullshit. I just want a nice,
funny, smart (and seemingly nerdy-chic) guy to share my time
I have discovered that people who are set in their ways in their
musical choices, and not opened to trying new things in the world
of music, don't suit me at all. Actually, it is a huge turnoff
because music is such a big part of my life. If you think that
listening to Phil Collin's number one hits is culturally
stimulating, don't read any further. If you aren't opened to
listening to a variety of different genres, the same

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I decided for the New Year, I would take up swing dancing. I'm
taking lessons and going different places to apply what I have
learned. If you want to help me fill up my dance card, let me know!
Besides that, teaching amazing young adults how to make music at a
College Prep school here in Chicago and finding my way around this
city. I sing a lot. Maybe if you are lucky, you will be around to
hear it one day. I really want to get into making music again that
doesn't involve the teenagers I teach. I miss playing with grown up
musicians. Currently, I'm playing in a community orchestra to get
my fix, and writing music with my best friend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
having red hair? I am really good at teaching. I pride myself in
being the "cool" teacher at school. It's a pretty awesome title to

My hair, I suppose, if we are talking about looks. My giant nerd
glasses, perhaps?I'm also pretty tall and no stick. Outside of that
my sense of humor. I also easily fit into new social situations. I
can have a conversation with just about anyone.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In random order:
2. My great grandfather's violin
3. My career
4. The Internet
5.My sense of hearing.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The world, and how I fit into it. That and how will I spend my
weekends without being surrounded by teenagers? It sounds strange,
but I very much value my "grown-up time". Also, what I want out of
life. When I know what I want, I go for it. I don't have time to
dance around. I am really tired of wearing the pants..... I am an
assertive woman but I want to find an equally assertive man.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out playing softball, dining, concerts, movies, staying in and
hanging with my puppies, watching the shows I missed during the
week, hanging out with friends, or cuddling up with a good book.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

-That having kids in the future (distant) is extremely important to
me, and if it isn't to you, there is really no point in messaging
me, because that issue will never change for me.
-I'm a sensitive and caring soul. I care a lot about people. I hope
you can handle that....
-OH, and that I have four (have 7 in total) really nerdy
tattoos...but you have to ask for details.
