My self-summary
I'm having a really hard time figuring out a way to describe myself that couldn't invoke the response, "wait, that's not me. That's EVERY PERSON EVER." Ah, well, such is life. As it turns out, we're not unique and precious snowflakes, and if ever you need proof, go Google something and see how quickly your exact question pops up as a suggestion.

Want to be reminded of our insignificance? Stand by the ocean. Want to be reminded of our lack of original thought? Get thee to a search engine.

Anyway, self-description. Here were go:

More than anything, I hope that I'm a kind person, and I try really hard to be one. I compliment strangers, make friends at bars, and try to do right by my fellow humans. I don't believe in criticizing people for the sake of it - especially other women - so while I probably won't trash celebrities with you, I will agree with you anytime you want to pay a woman in Hollywood a compliment, so I call that a silver lining.

I'm originally from southern California, which some people say is why I'm pretty laid back, but I only credit it for my love of the Lakers and avocadoes. In that order. I moved to D.C. for my job, which I love, and while I miss LA fiercely, I can't imagine leaving. I'm the Policy Director for a LGBT organization, and my work plays a really big role in my life. Not only does it take a lot of my time, but the issue owns a big part of my heart, and so do my progressive politics more generally. That's definitely something I would need to share with someone I dated, so if you're not a liberal, odds are, we're just not going to have enough in common.

I walk a pretty fine (and hard characterize) line between being pretty goofy and quite serious. I think a lot of things matter, and those I take incredibly seriously. But I think many more things don't matter that much - and matter much less than we think they matter - and I have a really great time refusing to take those things seriously. I love to read, I love watching television (seriously. Love it. Don't get me started), and I will generally watch any game that's on (because I'm my father's daughter), though my favorite is basketball. I also love to meet new people and just sit and talk. I ask a lot of questions (don't be alarmed!), and I genuinely love the process of getting to know someone.

I don't really have a type beyond loving men who are smart and funny. If you can make me think and make me laugh, I'm happy.

Anyway, if you think we'd get along, drop me a line! Hope to hear from you!
