My self-summary
I started an online dating consultancy- Frog2Prince- to help people out with their dating profiles. If you're interested in gaining some advice, shoot me a message or do a quick Google search. I'd love to hear from anyone - girls looking for guys, girls looking for girls, guys looking for girls, guys looking for guys, and anything in between. All ages, backgrounds, shapes and sizes.
What I’m doing with my life
After coming back from South Korea where I taught our complicated language to Korean middle schoolers and spent most of my time in elevators, I got a job working at a content marketing agency...and then I moved on to a way better job at a company that makes small phone systems. I write and manage the blog, which caters to small business owners and entrepreneurs.

I met my boyfriend on OkCupid and we co-founded our dating site. He's a mathematician and can do things like build web sites. For the record, his online dating profile was great, but I would've given him a 75 for photos on a 1-100 scale.

I'm a writer. That's what I do. It's probably what I'll always do. I hope to go to grad. school to study poetry.
I’m really good at
instigating, making people laugh, telling stories, shopping, engaging in conversation, expressing myself, writing stuff, cooking entire meals in one frying pan
The first things people usually notice about me
Probably my hair...it's big and blonde...someone once told me I looked like Shakira (I don't). Also, my voice (it's scratchy...a french man once heard me and yelled "EDITH PIAF" and an Indian guru recommended a gem treatment for it, but some people think it's normal)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Gone With The Wind, Narcissus and Goldmund (and other books by Herman Hesse) and Murakami books, though I realize it's become a little too "cool" to like Murakami (my favorite is South of the Border, West of the Sun). I like poetry (Billy Collins, Sharon Olds, Whitman, etc.) I just finished The Corrections by Franzen. How amazing and scary is this book? Anyone read it?

I think I have eclectic taste in music: I like American music (not country, though I'll dance to it for the novelty), but folk music and bluegrass (is bluegrass considered country?) The blues is great (It started in Mississippi, so is it also a little bit country?) Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver, The Beatles, James Blake, Deb Talan, Bob Dylan are all favorites. Anyone into Ray Lamontagne? I love house music and electronica. I am insanely into Ellie Goulding. I love going to see live music. Take me to a show!

Lately I have been watching a lot of really bizarre foreign films on Netflix...like "The Swimming Pool." I loved the recent Bollywood film called "Rock Star." "Crazy, Stupid, Love" was surprisingly good--I watched it on an airplane. I saw "The Departed" on an airplane (should've seen that one a while ago). I LOVED THIS MOVIE. Leonardo DiCaprio is a good actor.

I love food. Meat. I love bloody mary's (marys? maries?)
Six things I could never do without
The people in my life, my wonderful memories (!), my iPhone (help me be less addicted!), some money (also sad, but true), good conversations, and my passport (but I'm not a snob!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
whether or not I can survive in a place with winter, my new business
On a typical Friday night I am
in a really great outfit with my friends, in a bar without a tv, sometimes in a bar with a tv, at home in my big blue bathrobe, at a show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Someone wanted to pay me to be their girlfriend. Also, my sister and I regularly buy Nerds candy and polish off a box in under an hour...because of this we are now OFF candy. Check in with me to see how I'm doing.
You should message me if
...you're interested in talking about our weird world, if you have a recommendation for a great date restaurant in Boston, if you're struggling to get responses to your messages, if you feel that dogs should DEFINITELY not be allowed in bars, even if you like them. Message me if you want dating help!
