Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
To be honest, I'm not overly thrilled to be "getting back in the
game" at my age. As a young(er) girl, I always thought I'd be
married by the big 3-0 but I suppose life doesn't always happen the
way you'd imagined.
For full disclosure, I admit I am coming out of a recent breakup. I
know...sounds like a horrible set up for a rebound. Therefore, my
expectations aren't that high for now. Don't get me wrong, I AM
looking for true love. I never date someone for any other reason
than marriage...but I know I'm not going to find it instantly. As
an eternal optimist, I'm hopeful that the right guy for me is out
there but as a pragmatist, I know I'm not going to find him moping
around at home. So I'm giving this a chance....if only to see
what's out there.
What I am looking for: someone with a warm, genuine, and caring
heart. I think if someone has that basic trait, everything else
will fall into place. More practically, I want an old-fashioned
gentleman - someone who will open doors for me, carry my heavy
luggage, make the first move, etc. I am looking for a confident man
who knows what he wants and knows how to get it, who continually
looks for ways to improve himself, takes care of his own physical
and mental health, has his own interests, and someone who will love
my family as his own. Finally, I want someone I can look up to and
admire, who will introduce me to new things and a best friend to
experience life with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a surgical resident training to one day become a vascular
surgeon. My work is time-consuming and often physically and
emotionally draining but I love what I do and wouldn't have it any
other way. I always make time in my life for those who are dear to
As a side note: I am originally from the San Francisco Bay Area and
am definitely clamoring to get back there. I have about another 3
years left in Boston. Therefore, I know this may sound somewhat
close-minded and will likely greatly diminish the dating pool for
me, but I should probably avoid anyone who is rooted in New
England. After going through several relationships, I've learned
it's important to just be honest and upfront about the fundamental
things you want/need in a relationship. Thinking that these things
may change or that you'll learn to compromise on the stuff that
really matters to you is an exercise in futility and ends up
wasting everyone's time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Affection - love it, need it, AWESOME at giving it =)
Being domestic - cooking, baking, knitting, sewing, you name it! I
would have made a fantastic housewife if I'd been born 100 years
Anything that involves working with my hands.
Killing house plants with love.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My parents and sister are the most important thing in my
2. My BFFs of course
3. Food - yes, I'm one of those "live to eat" kind of people.
4. Some sort of creative outlet. In the past, I used to paint (oils
and acrylic) and had a lot of crafty endeavors. Nowadays, because
of time constraints, my creative energy is funneled primarily into
5. Physical exercise/activity/exploring - hiking/trekking, camping,
running, snowboarding (although it's been a while), swimming, and
6. My iPhone. Don't worry, I'm not one of those people with my
iPhone constantly plastered to my face. It's just I'm still in awe
of just how powerful and enabling this little device is.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Honestly? Often working. Being a surgical resident definitely comes
with some s**ty disadvantages. But when I do get some time, I'm out
finding new places to eat with friends or dabbling in one of my
hobbies (photography, cooking, building terrariums, planning my
next great getaway). I feel like I'm a little too old to be
routinely frequenting the bar scene but I do still enjoy a crazy
night out once in a while.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never have time for it anymore, but back when I was in med
school, I published a sweater pattern in a knitting magazine.
