Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
DISCLAIMER: I have received feedback from men who say that I
shouldn't post photos of myself in my workout clothes because it
gives the impression that I am just looking for a one night stand
or that I am promiscuous. However, when I remove those pics, I
receive feedback from men who say that they need to see my body to
be sure that I am not overweight. So it's catch 22. Please
understand that I am not just looking for a one night stand, and I
am not promiscuous. I am looking to meet people to date and
hopefully it will develop into something more.
Now....on to my intro....
I am petite, yet I am full of life. I am youthful in looks &
personality...no one has ever been able to guess my age. (Most
people think I look 25!) I've been described as upbeat, outgoing,
fun, honest, reliable, business minded, and loyal. I am fiercely
loyal to my friends and to my man. I am an urban girl who is
passionate about the city and all its culture. Working out
regularly is a priority for me, as I am into health & fitness.
I like to crack people up...I have a disarming sense of humor that
can bring out the fun side of even the most reserved person. But
I've also been told that I'm a good person to come to when someone
needs guidance, and I am very supportive of friends and family.
Integrity is a big part of who I am. Music is a significant passion
for me. I listen to everything from rock and pop, dance and
r&b, jazz and blues, to salsa and samba, and world music. But I
am equally content just kicking back with you, watching sports,
relaxing with a good movie, or talking about what's important to
you. I am an open book and I have depth, so I can tell you more
about my background if you're interested in getting to know
I am attracted to a guy who is confident without being cocky. A guy
who takes initiative, and who is comfortable in his own skin,
articulate, a great communicator, open minded, fun, and respectful.
I especially relate well to someone who is ambitious and
passionate. Diversity is welcome...I have had great connections
with men who work in a field different from my own, or have a few
different interests from mine. Keeps things exciting! Ultimately, I
am looking for someone who is happy in his life and down to earth.
I believe it starts with a good connection and an interest in
learning from each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in management in the media industry. I also have a
background in architecture, photography, and journalism. I'm not
the kind of person to get stuck in a rut; I'm always continuously
learning from experience, and from the people around me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Staying physically fit and youthful, writing and communicating,
salsa dancing, and making people laugh.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family, friends, laughter, music, dancing, and *SOCCER*.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be original instead of following a formula.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
In the summer: hanging out at Millennium Park, walking by the
lakefront, or enjoying a live music performance outdoors. In the
winter: catching a great movie with friends, having cocktails
during happy hour, or indulging in dinner at a new restaurant.
