Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I want to retire from dating. Don't get me wrong - I live the
butterflies and anticipation that come with the first few dates -
Will he be as cute as his picture? Does he like me? Ooh, is he
going to kiss me? Good stuff. :-)
But the thing is, I don't want just the first few chapters. I want
the ever after. I want to be with someone who makes me light up
just because he walked in the room.
So what do I have to offer? Glad you asked:
1. 100% of my friends think I would be an awesome girlfriend
because I'm loyal, caring and quick with a one liner.
2. I will notice your favorite beverages/snacks and keep my kitchen
stocked accordingly. :-)
3. I will always be on your side and look for the best in you even
when we disagree.
4. I'm always looking for new things to try so when you say, "What
do you want to do tonight?" I won't just say, "Whatever you want to
do." I'm a girl with ideas!! But I'm also laidback and can go with
the flow and enjoy whatever activity you want to do too. Either way
I love to be out doing different things, whether it's going for a
hike or checking out a cool exhibit at a museum.
5. Well some things you're just going to have to find out for
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
One of the big passions of my life is my career. I'm a school
psychologist and for me every day is different because every
student's needs are different so I enjoy the myriad challenges that
greet me each day. I'm a huge nerd when it comes to anything
relating to psychology or sociology so be prepared to occasionally
hear me gush over the results of some new study that indicates
things like the biological reasons why some songs become huge hits
and others flop.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Enjoying the simple pleasures in life like sleeping late on the
weekends or cooking a delicious (and healthy!) meal.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Everyone says my smile. I'm usually smiling or laughing about
something. I'm a glass half full person and I try to see the humor
in situations rather than let things get me down.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - I like historical fiction and biographies.
Movies - I tend to skew towards comedies or action movies (The
Hangover, Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man, The Avengers). I recently saw
Argo and liked that too.
Shows - I really don't watch a lot of TV but I do like comedies
like Seinfeld, Big Bang Theory and Modern Family or cooking shows
like Chopped or Top Chef. I also love documentaries on the History
Channel. And of course, football.
Music - Such a broad category. I guess I'll just say I enjoy some
current artists like Lady Gaga, Imagine Dragons, Mumford & Sons
and the Lumineers. I'm definitely getting more and more into opera
and classical music. Favorites include La Boheme, the various
Bachs, Beethoven's 7th, Brahm's 4th, La Traviata, Lalo's Symphonie
Espagnole, and anything by Mozart. I have no problem going to these
by myself so if they're not your thing, no worries.
Food - I'm an adventurous eater and enjoy lots of different ethnic
foods, including: Indian, Greek, Thai, sushi, tapas, Mexican and
Ethiopian to name a few. And there's always a special place in my
heart for Italian!!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family and friends of course. Also, traveling, my iPhone,
chocolate and good veggie burgers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Gosh, I feel like I should put something really deep here, like
world peace or the national debt. Of course, I think about those
things sometimes but honestly it's pretty varied. Right now it's
mostly thinking about all the fun things I want to do this summer.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out having dinner with friends, enjoying some cultural event or
relaxing at home on my couch.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, it's not really private but I guess it's embarrassing if that
counts. I love to sing (badly) along with the radio in my car. So
if you see me out driving around you might catch me belting out the
lyrics to "Bad Romance" or "Karma Chameleon". Don't worry, I don't
subject passengers to this, I only pretend I'm a Grammy winning
artist when I'm alone. :-)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're a funny, sweet gentleman who is a good conversationalist.
I'm really attracted to confident, take-charge guys. Basic social
skills and an open mind are definitely a must!! :-) Bonus points if
you know the difference between compliment and complement.
So you've read this far - what do you think? If I sound like
someone you'd want to meet and you've also been thinking that
you're at a place in your life where you'd like to bow out of the
dating scene, please say hi. It might work out, it might not. But
hey, it only takes one. :-)
