Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
People always tell me I have really good manners, but I think this
is just because I was raised by a mother from the rural south. I
suppose I spent my childhood and adolescence rebelling against her
notion of being ladylike, as she happens to think my manners are
terrible! Anyways, if I could describe myself, I'd say: optimistic,
extroverted, a little cynical, kind, passionate and intelligent. I
took some time in my twenties to travel, and I am yearning for a
partner in crime to explore new destinations with. I'd like to find
someone funny, kind, adventurous, affectionate and interested in
the world around them.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love Italian food, rich pastas, and taking time enjoying a meal.
My favorite movie of all time is Vertigo, as I enjoy the thrill and
plot twist Alfred Hitchcock is so well known for, as well as seeing
old San Francisco on screen and the fashion of the 1940s and 50s.
My favorite author is Tennessee Williams. Right now I'm reading
"The Case for God," by Karen Armstrong. It is interesting, in part,
because it forces the reader to think of how the history at the
time in which different religious texts were written effects how we
should interpret them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Travel! Yummy, healthy, fresh food. A comfortable bed and a
plethora of blankets. Good walking shoes. My sunhat (and maybe my
cell phone and passport too).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to live a balanced life in modern society.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I enjoy checking out art shows and events, parties my friends are
having, or educational workshops/talks going on in the community. I
am a bit of a science nerd too, and I really enjoy science talks
and museums. I like going out to dinner and enjoying delicious
food, then dancing after. I also enjoy staying in, cuddling and
watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I didn't get my drivers license until I was 21 because I failed the
driving test three times. I got three automatic fails. But it's a
good story to share with you all now.
