The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Kind of an abstract thing going on there.
Especially zero. Gotta love zero.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

The regulatory functions of the frontal lobe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You can be yourself and let others be themselves.
You prefer to appreciate Life as a rich tapestry of colors, rather
than merely black and white.
You can have fun with makeup, while being comfortable without it.
You are gorgeous without makeup ... at least as far as I'm
You can navigate conflict in healthy ways. You value others, as
well as yourself. You appreciate balance, complexity, flexibility,
Body, mind, soul ... what floats your boat? Do you know what you
like--what nurtures you?
Do you ask yourself what makes you tick? Are you curious about the
world, others, and yourself?
As far as night-life, you like to go out, but it's probably not a
regular thing. Catching up on sleep once in a while is okay;
feeling as if jet-lagged from five different time zones by the end
of the week ... not so much.
You can accept the occupational hazards of being human and being
with someone else who is also human.
You want to have kids, and to enjoy the challenges and rewards that
come with our humble attempts to believe in and support children,
as well as one another.
