Shocking I know!
Hoping to find a cool cat that likes to have fun; follows through
on their word; has an interest in what's going on in the world,
art, music, and social justice; is a bit quirky with some edge to
them; likes to dance, cook, perhaps go for a bike ride; and tends
to make traveling a priority. Also someone who is a bit done with
hooking up for the sake of hooking up; someone who is open to a
relationship with the right lady.
When you hang out with me what you get is the following: a woman
that is a bit quirky, has a great sense of humor, someone who likes
to debate and discuss what is happening in the world, a laid back
attitude, a pretty decent dance partner, someone who can and likes
to cook and a music aficionado.
While my family lives in the area, I just moved to LA after living
in DC for 8 years. Glad to be on the left coast again and look
forward to exploring the city with someone.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
When I am not on a bike, you can find me dancing somewhere,
watching movies, enjoying live music, preparing a good meal, on my
yoga mat, exploring new places or hanging out with friends and
In DC, I worked in international development and traveled often to
a variety of countries in Africa. Became pretty jaded with the
whole development scene and now look forward to my job working in
public health in LA. I feel like a fish out of water since I don't
work in entertainment but I also like the fact that I'm unique! To
be honest though I would rather discuss our hobbies, ideas,
thoughts, and life experiences then our jobs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Laughing, cooking, budget travel, dancing and love to discover new
music from around the world.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like to take initiative; you are confident but not cocky; you
think you can make me laugh; you feel like bustin' loose; and you
are simply ready to meet a pretty cool down to earth woman. You are
cool with exchanging one or two messages and if things seem cool,
meeting in person. Life is too short to have a virtual relationship
(platonic or romantic). Also simply liking me isn't going to get a
response. Send me a message. I don't bite. Happy searching!
