Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I would love to say that I'm laid back and easy going, but that's
untrue and I don't want to start our relationship with a lie. I
love to laugh and spend time outdoors, and I spend a little too
much time (and money) trying new restaurants and eating out with
friends. My biggest indulgences are travel and things that are sold
on late night TV (it slices and dices???) and I'm a sucker for
anything sold at the Container Store.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but I'm not one of those people who
brags about not even owning a television and I can usually be
convinced to watch any really bad 80s action movie. I also watch
France 24 in an effort to improve my French, but so far no luck. I
read a fair amount, but it really depends on the week and how much
I go out. I try to read two books per month and lots of current
affairs magazines (ok, Glamour is not exactly the Economist, but I
subscribe to them both so they cancel each other out).
I'm outgoing, like to talk to strangers and I like all vegetables
(although I am not a big fan of eggplant). I'd be interested in
hearing from you if you are the type of person who: helps old
ladies cross the street; likes to sing in the shower and think you
sound good when you do; thinks brunch is the best meal of the day;
and have never been involved in a sex scandal (college years do not
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm still working that out. If you have the answer to this question
then I would like to meet you as soon as possible. Until then, I am
living in New York after having lived in Geneva and Bangkok the
last 3 years. Mostly I am getting settled in my new(ish) job,
hanging out with friends, getting reacquainted with the city and
still trying to learn French. I am also still wondering why they
cancelled Arrested Development, but some of life's mysteries will
never be solved.
Oh, I'm also looking for a potential love interest, hence the time
spent on this site. If you are the answer to that then I would most
definitely like to meet you.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I have a distinctive laugh? My firm handshake? My uncanny
ability to see into the depths of their soul? I have no idea. When
we meet, please make note of your impressions so we can laugh later
about how incredibly wrong you were.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like different genres of writing, including non-fiction,
biographies, fiction, history and how-to books. Recent reads
include books about the assassination of President McKinley, a
history of the mob in Cuba, time management and mindfulness. In
terms of music I like soul/neo-soul r&b, electronica, pop,
rock, salsa, some country, some classical. I like action movies and
thrillers and I usually detest historical dramas and period pieces
and/or anything with Keira Knightly. I like all food .. alot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Passport, iPod, books, breakfast, exercise, my friends, my aunt

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Writing the great American novel, world domination and how I can
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out with friends or passed out on my couch by 9pm. It depends on my
week at work.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have a bad sense of smell because one nostril doesn't really
work, and it also prevents me from diving. Also, I like to watch
Murder, She Wrote and the Golden Girls on the Hallmark Channel;
don't judge me, I am a work in progress.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you like to meet new people, you are funny and don't take
yourself too seriously. Also, I have a filter for messages that
have fewer than three words and that begin with "hi sweetie" or "hi
baby", so if you send me a message please say more than "hi" and
don't call me sweetie or baby.
