My self-summary
I initially signed up for this site after a lot of convincing from friends to try it and I've slowly tried to add more to my profile and keep an open mind; I figured why not try something different. I don't want to write an essay about myself. I'd rather just learn about each other in person....

So i think i'll put a few quotes here instead:

"One good thing about music...When it hits you feel no pain" -Bob Marley

"Because inside everyone is a loser...afraid to be loved, and out there is the one person who can kiss us and make it all better." -Never Been Kissed

-"I can make no apologies for following my heart." -Gavin Rossdale

-"For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You want it to be with someone you can’t get outta your head, so that when your lips finally touch, you can feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot, so deep, that you never want to come up for air." -Grey's Anatomy

-"Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent." -Victor Hugo

“I'm scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life, the way I feel when I'm with you.” -Dirty Dancing

"The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.” -Emil Ludwig

-"Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured."
-B.K.S. Iyengar

-"That evening, after we have been together for several hours, I realize that our visits are starting to run together in one delicious blur of talking, touching, dozing, and simply existing together in a warm, easy silence like the perfect beach vacation, where the routine is so blissfully uneventful that when you return home and friends ask how your trip was, you can’t really recall what exactly you did to fill up so many hours. that is what being with him is like."
-Emily Giffin, Something Borrowed
What I’m doing with my life
I'm new to LA and I'm looking to meet people. I have always viewed this app as just another avenue to meet people you usually wouldn't get to cross paths with. Maybe you just have a new positive experience or learn about a new place, food or topic. Maybe we become friends. Maybe we date casuallly. Maybe we date seriously. But none of that can happen unless we meet and learn about each other and see if there is a connection to develop. I've met an ex on here, I've made good friends and even met my best friend on here cause I didn't come in with any judgement or expectations other than show up, meet, converse, share a new common experience, decide if you want t keep getting to know each other and develop a friendship and go from there.

Commonly asked questions or stmts that I no longer want to answer cause either I already answer in my profile or am shocked by the amount of you in 2017 still thinks it's weird or unsafe to meet someone online when out whole world is online and you don't even really know half your Facebook friends or you think it is wifey shopping or instagetlaid. Or your incapable of thinking men and women can be friends or shouldn't be friends first and you get soooo offended when a woman doesn't want you romantically. I can tell you right now I can get along with anyone and find something interesting and valuable in every person. So if I do decide to take it to more than friends I need that chemistry and that spark and that something else not someone with a checklist I hit.

Yes I am willing to meet
Yes I've met other people. Yes I'm talking to other people
No I don't want to meet you for a drink. I don't drink alcohol. Don't care if you do just not my thing. No it doesn't mean I won't meet friends out or be social
No I am not looking for a boyfriend to have a boyfriend I am looking for new friends and if it turns into a greater connection great
No I will no be impressed by who you know, how much you make, what car you drive, your six pack or your dumb ass pick up line.
Don't try and impress me with inauthentic crap just be you. I like realness and honesty and good humor.

And if you laughing that guys actually do this like I say below, we'll get along. Hit me up.

Sorry for the preface. Just literally getting so many messages and am a little overwhelmed and really want to meet people who are also open minded and not only expecting a hook up or girlfriend or are so closed minded they won't meet people or prejudge them and further limit their connections and experiences.

So a little about me...I worked in the music industry doing royalties for 6 years. Left the record company I was at in June 2015 to follow my heart and pursue career in wellness industry.

Just Moved to LA in January 2017! Los Feliz/Hollywood/Silverlake area.

My journey took me from Brooklyn to Boston August 2015 to do a intensive yoga training with my yoga teacher from college. During training I made amazing friends, was offered great job opportunities and found a sense of community I was looking for so decided to stay in Boston until January.

A private client joked I should get a Masters in Yoga and I couldn't sleep one night so I googled it and Loyola Marymount University here in LA has an incredible Yoga Studies Program only one of its kind outside India so I stared flying out last Fall for weekend classes for a Certificate Program in Yoga, Mindfulness and Social Change and then I moved out here in January to be more involved in the program and event on campus and also am doing one on one leaning from my teacher/mentor in Silverlake in which explores Yoga as a system of neuroplaciity and utilizing positive psychology and tapping as tools of neuroplacicity . I also volunteer at a meditation studio and am always reading and dorking out in something. I currently am looking for part time job while I get my coaching business established here and have been on a hunt for a great coffee shop/alternative places to study and get work done. If you have any recommendations I'd love to hear.

Otherwise just adding learn social media and revamp your website to my never ending to do list. Lol

The pics are from a trip to the Bahamas January 2015. Really enjoyed kayaking on the ocean and biking around rocky paths on a seemingly desert island and already thinking where I can go next. Love to travel and explore and learn about new cultures. I love to try new food, check out fun events, watch movies, and check out new resturants and neighborhoods.
I’m really good at
I love trying new things and talking to new people. I've made friends by interjecting into people's conversations, travelled to europe alone and was never alone if I didn't want to be and even get some perks being friendly and loyal to small shop owners I get to know by name. Being friendly is really underrated sometimes. I think everyone has something interesting to say regardless of their current station in life and its amazing what people will share if you just listen . I think connecting with others is so important and fulfilling which is why I love yoga so much because it's essentially study of understanding yourself and others to have a better experience moving forward through life.

I like being adventerous and active and outdoors but also like being lazy and staying in and cuddling up with a good movie. I like exploring and learning and want a guy that will push me to do so/does so with me.

I'm the kind of girl who is just as comfortable sitting around a fire or bbqing with friends or riding on the back of a motorcycle or doing something outdoors as i am going to a show or dressing up for a nice dinner or event.

I'm open minded, not judgmental and like to do a variety of different things. A lot of people tell me I'm not what they expected, in a good way.
The first things people usually notice about me
A friend says "My Spark"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ask me over dinner....I love all kinds of food, i think you should try everything!
Six things I could never do without
1. Stella McCartney Perfume
2. Baby Lotion (Johnson & Johnson of course)
3. Cozy Sweaters
4. Music
5. Yoga
6. Passport
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Communication...When did it become acceptable in society to communicate like total crap? When did it become okay to replace a nice short phone call with hours of crappy incoherent texting when trying to make plans? When did it become acceptable to make plans with someone and not really mean them? Or to just disrespect people and their time and just totally blow them off? Or calling people and answering people when it is convenient for you and you need something but not be there when that friend needs you in return? And also if texting and platforms such as this make communication and connecting better or worse.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having dinner with friends? At a meditation or soundbath or anything that lights me up!? Home curled up watching a movie or reading with some takeout? At a show? Out with you? ....I don't think there's such a thing as a typical Friday night
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I want to travel more and some days I wish I could drop everything and just travel the world...i want to see every country, see all the beauty, have crazy adventures, try all differnt kinds of food and experience different cultures.

Or I'd really love to meet someone special to explore and have adventures with then come home cuddle up, watch a movie and smoke a j and enjoy each other's company....
You should message me if
-You want to meet for dinner tonight. I'm craving Asian.

-Bonus: You like to Cook, you are tall, you have a sexy beard, you want to eat your way around the world with me....

I apparantly have to write this cause common sense chiverly and respect apparantly have evaded half of you out there. This is not instant messenger, just cause it says I'm online doesn't mean I am cause of the app nor does it mean I'm free to respond instanttaneously. Besides the fact that you shouldn't be damanding an immediate response or sending offensive messages if I don't respond or don't respond as fast as you'd like is totally unacceptable to any woman. Sometimes I'm taking a class, sometimes im teaching a class. Or working. Or doing anything other than instantanously responding to every message. So if I am using my free time to talk to you, appreciate that. This is a way to connect with and meet new people you usually wouldn't. If you're demanding attention, interviewing your wife off your checklist or have no patience or respect we're not gonna get along. Can't believe I had to write this but not in the mood for any more disrespectful messages and having my time wasted with mean immature messages. . Also, please don't just say hi, have no pic or no info on profile (if u can't put any effort into this profile to meet someone how r u going to put effort into a relationship). And please don't try and insult me or correct my Grammer, as if ur making me feel dumb if I choose to not answer cause I'm busy or say I'm sorry I don't think we'll get along. I'm lucky if I type you vs u let alone spell check my messages. . it's not going to work and I'm very intelligent but this isn't English class.

And if your sitting there thinking WTF is wrong with these dudes giving other guys a bad rap, message me well probably get along. It's why I stay on this site. I know some of you are really great. I don't let the shitty ones cloud my judgment, just really don't feel like even dealing with it anymore to be honest. Got to be too much.
