Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Thank you for visiting!
I'm much better in person than in a random self-summary paragraph.
I'm funny (at least in my own head), and smart. I relish good
conversations and interesting adventures. There's much much
more.... but you'll have to meet me to experience it all.
"I think dating, at least at first, is about finding someone that
is fun to be around and engaging and happy. OK, thoughtful and
interesting too. Ideally someone that can challenge you and make
you think and whom you can respect and admire while also helping
you feel really relaxed and accepted and at ease. Adventurous,
energetic and outgoing is good. Someone unafraid of being stupid
and hilarious and ridiculous can be awesome. And someone you think
is hot. I don’t really have a checklist or formula, but some
combination of the above, I think is good."
I'm looking for a connection. I'm open to all the possibilities in
between. Let's see meet and see if there's anything to build on.
I'd love for you to be receptive to seeing what happens.
I'm a funny, energetic and generally happy person. I'm naturally
curious and love to learn new things. I appreciate music and art
and hope you do as well. I like men who are confident without being
I'm not interested in dating anyone from outside the Seattle area.
I want real human interaction, not texts.
I'll almost always be smiling and would love to share my evenings
with someone who appreciates all I have to offer (and is willing to
learn what those things are).
I could be the person that changes your life, or someone that you
have a couple of cool dates with or you may not remember me five
minutes after you leave our first meeting, regardless, isn't it
exciting to see which it is?
I'm still very human (read: I have insecurities, fears and
anxieties like anyone else, even when you can't see them - but I am
mature enough to deal with them.)
Here's the truly bragging portion of the self-summary: I'm a catch!
I look and act much younger than my age (in good ways), yet I've
had enough life experiences to be thoughtful, kind, and a good
communicator. I own my own house. I have a job I like. I have
friends who love me. I am only responsible for myself (which means
impulsive drives down the coast or a midnight show or a 7 movie
Saturday afternoon on the couch can happen with no fuss or
planning). I have a life that I'm willing to share. My 'baggage' is
pretty much an overnight bag. I'm very interesting, open and
adaptable. My insight and listening powers are legendary. I'll
almost always give you a smile when I see you.
I feel like I should talk about what I'm looking for and all that.
It's pretty simple. If I meet you and that's IT (i.e. you're my
forever person) game over, I'm IN!I don't have an agenda or
specific goals beyond finding someone to enjoy life with whether
that's for a couple weeks, months, years or forever.
There's lots of layers to me. Let's meet and see if we have any
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am having fun, laughing as often as possible, occasionally
getting annoyed, learning about different things, and solving
I'm a big observer of people and situations. I love learning new
things and figuring out better ways to be.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
bunches and bunches of things... or nothing at all - depending on
my mood and what we're talking about.
I strive to keep learning. I have the ability to keep lots of
little bits of information about lots of different things in my
rather crowded brain, which makes me pretty good at trivia.
I'm also a very good planner!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: i read and I read and when i get tired, I read some more.
I'll read most anything. Let's talk about our favorite books! I'm a
sci fi and fantasy junkie. Recently I started a mini-book club just
so I have people to chat with about sci fi/fantasy (my regular
bookclub is more 'traditional' in its picks).
Movies: I just love movies. Love them! I'll watch anything that
doesn't have Ben Stiller in it (I think Adam Sandler might now be
on the do not watch list as well). My secret (oops) weakness is the
Resident Evil movies! Generally i really love movies made by people
who really love movies. The most obvious examples are Christopher
Nolan, Werner Herzog, Guillermo del Toro and Danny Boyle, but there
are loads more.
Music: yes, there is music I don't listen to, but i can find
someone or group in every single genre of music that do i like. A
friend recently said, "music sounds like feelings feel" and that is
very true for me. My music reflects my mood, my surroundings and my
Food: I love a great meal! Mexican and Italian are my favorites. I
do try foods i don't like every couple years and/or in different
ways. I will skip the 'just okay' cafe to wait for the 'amazing
food' cafe no matter how long the line.
Drink: I'm a wine and bourbon girl (no, not together!). I really
love trying different wines as well as drinking the wines I know I
love. Bourbon is my drink of choice on most outings. I love how
unique every bourbon is. Naturally, it reminds me of some of the
joys of wine.
Yes, I like to travel and have lived in a foreign country. I only
have one state left to visit to finish my 'tour' of the U.S. Let's
plan a trip!
For the past couple of years I've been making sure I try new
things. This summer, I plan on learning how to drive a motorcycle,
maybe to buy my own, maybe just so I know how and can take over in
an emergency if I'm on the back of someone elses. By the way, I
love being taken on motorcycle rides (that was one of last year's
I'm a huge sports fan. Not crazy paint my face, decorate my house
in team colors and refuse to do anything during game times, but i
can TALK about football, soccer, cycling, and hockey. I can fake my
way through a conversation about other sports as well. I am always
happy when i meet fellow fans, but don't need everyone around me to
be fans or even like sports. There is a book, movie and tv series
about my high school sports team, i really had no choice but to go
down the sports fan road. ;-p
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
six! limiting me to six?!?!? how about a rotating 6.... a different
group every day:=) i can always come up with six things i can't do
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

more like laundry stuff); where i'm going (that's the deep stuff);

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hanging out with friends, getting ready for the rest of the
weekend, crashing on the couch or doing other typical things.
You should message me if

you like geeking out on scifi, fantasy, pop culture, music, sports,
want to take me out for a motorcycle ride;
something in all this appeals to you.
I do send messages, and would love a reply (even if it's 'thanks
but no thanks') and I will reply to your message so send one if
you're interested in meeting! (Note: I don't reply if you live
outside of western WA state)

Bonus points if you have/like tattoos, love to have conversations
about deep stuff and fluffy stuff, read books, listen to (and like
to go see) music, are up for both spontaneous and planned
adventures, and are willing to try new things and to keep repeating
the good ole oldies!
