Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Laura..I I moved to the Albany area two years ago from
Poughkeepsie, and now that I'm settled into life here, I'm looking
for someone to share it with. I like to just get out of the house
no matter what it is. I like the idea of trying new things but
sometimes my fears get the best of me, so sometimes I need a little
convincing to step outside of my comfort zone. I am an open book
and speak my mind, so I'm looking for someone who shares those
qualities. I need someone who will tell it like it is, challenge me
when I need to be challenged, but treat me like a friend, a
partner, and an equal. I am open to doing anything from cooking in
and watching a movie to zip-lining, as long as I'm in good company!
My friends and family are very important to me, so I need someone
who can hang out in a group and be social, and I would do the same
for them- I'm always open to meeting new people, and I like men who
value their friends and family like I do. I am a college graduate
and work full-time, though I am still looking to start a career in
my field (community health), so I'm looking for a man who is
settled into a career or at least on his way.
I am completely new to online dating, so I don't know what to
expect, but I know I'm looking for something more serious than
casual hook-ups so if that's your intention, we're just not going
to be a match. If you are someone interested in going on actual
dates and getting to know someone new who doesn't play games, then
feel free to contact me!
If you don't have a picture please don't contact me ... part of my
skepticism about online dating,.. I'll assume you're a serial
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Community Health and Chemical
Dependency Counseling Certificate, however I am still trying to
break into a career in my field, so in the meantime work full-time
in retail as a supervisor. It's fine for now, because I love being
around people, but I am working hard towards starting my

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
....just kidding... but I'm a great cook, I'm good at making people
laugh, and I'm great at procrastinating then getting things done
right under the wire.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Me! I have a big personality and I'm pretty outgoing, so I don't
generally go unnoticed, but at the same time I'm very much a case
of "can't judge a book by a cover," because I've been told I can
have a "bitch face" but it really just means I'm in la-la-land not
paying attention to what's going on. No need to approach with
But on a more serious note, most people comment on my long curly

Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm not much of a reader... college ruined that for me!
Movies: I LOVE horror movies and comedies. Favorites include
Bridesmaids, Butterfly Effect, and The Hangover.
Shows: Shameless, Nurse Jackie, Dexter, True Blood, Big Bang Theory
and Walking Dead.
Food: Seafood & Mexican are the favorites, but I'm usually up
to try anything, even though I'm kind of a picky eater... just
another way in which I'm one of a kind :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. My family
3. My car
4. A job
5. Mio... awesome invention, seriously.
6. My animals
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My future... right now I'm trying hard to break into the community
health/human services field and find my dream job, so I'm very
focused on what's to come, which is also why I'm looking for
someone who respects and fits into my goals and ambitions.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working, unfortunately. But when I have a Friday night off I am
hanging out with friends, sometimes going out for a drink, other
times just hanging out and having a good time.
