Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
i'm vivacious, passionate, and love dinners out with friends. but
i'm also shy, humble, and treasure cozy nights at home. i love to
dance to house music and i'm a dedicated groupie of my friends'
bands. i love plants and dogs, and other living things. i care a
lot about all people being treated right and about fighting for
social justice in the little and big ways. i get giddy about
karaoke and spearhead concerts and really good arugula salads and
going to the beach. i have a big, complex, multiracial family and i
love them a whole lot. i'm a devoted auntie and i love kids, though
i don't know yet if i want to be a parent. i'm full-figured and
beautiful, a pretty good singer and a sometimes pool shark. i love
big as often as possible, i cry hard when it's in order, and i
laugh out loud at every opportunity.
i'm mixed, and feel very connected to both my black heritage and my
scandinavian heritage. i love my diverse family, and the dear
friends i've made from all parts of my life.
i'm looking for a guy to hang out, laugh, and explore the world
with - someone with his own rich life but who wants to spend
quality time doing the little and big things together.
i don't drink, smoke, or do any drugs - i'm living a substance-free
and very fun-filled life! if alcohol or drugs are important to you
or a significant part of your life, we're probably not a fit. but
if you're willing not to do them or be on them when you're with me,
then feel free to be in touch!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i manage an urban farm in boston - four and a half years ago i made
the switch from grantwriting to this new career. i am so happy that
i'm committed to living a long and healthy life, and getting there
is a journey. healthy eating is important to me, and swimming,
dancing, and hiking are favorite ways to move.
i try to have fun whenever possible! a recently discovered passion
is knitting. i love the art of comedy, and get a kick out of
breaking down why something is funny. i also love a good heated
i want to be practicing yoga and traveling but they've taken a back
seat lately. i'm planning to pick up kayaking next season.
i'm a podcast fiend and have aspirations of being a comic book nerd
- always happy to get recommendations!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're playful, thoughtful, adventurous, love art and music, like
dogs and kids, like full-figured women, looking for something
relatively serious, care about making a contribution to humanity,
and want to see the world!
if you do write, please say more than just "hey" -- especially if
we have a low % match. show me we've got something to talk
also, please don't message me if you're out-of-state - local folks
only! and don't message me if you're looking for someone to
dominate you, or some other similar arrangement. that's not for me.
