ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

WHY I'M HERE:
I have a really great life on my own: Amazing friends and family, finally running again after a long few months off, moving to the St. Louis area for a job I can't wait to begin in August, volunteering with fantastic people, learning on a daily basis, laughing and smiling (smiling's my favorite!) and being happy. But things are more fun when they're shared, so I'd love to find a partner who makes my life better just because he's in it.

I'm looking for my last first date. Will that happen here? Friends have managed to do exactly that on Match... And I guess weirder things have happened in my life.

YOU:
- Intellect and a sense of humor are imperative; I believe smart and funny go hand-in-hand. Plus, in my family, we only make fun of you if we like you.
- Have a passion for something important and awesome in life
- Are physically active more days of the week than not
- Understand ambition, have it, and act on it
- Are intellectually curious
- Believe in fun
- Are open-minded
- Know how important kindness is to life

WE:
- Understand the importance of mutual respect and communication.
- Challenge each other, and like it.
- Believe independence is a good thing. My best relationships were where we maintained our independence while combining forces to be uber-amazing together.
- Shared interests are a great starting place, but we both want to try stuff we've never done before, visit places we've never been.

ME:
- Been told I'm the girl next door (with qualifiers), but I've also been told looks can be deceiving. I'm not sure I'm flattered by either option.
- It makes me happy when the apple peels in one long curl or when the orange peel looks like a palm tree.
- Good gin or vodka will make my night.
- Sometimes I snort when I laugh. Also, if you lose me in a crowd, you can just listen for my laugh. Yeah, I'm one of THOSE girls.
- I can keep score at a baseball game, break down basketball film, and have had sporting experiences many are jealous of, but I also dig tall, cute shoes, quirky films, discussing world events, and traveling (just give me 10 minutes to pull my passport and get my toothbrush).
- I worked in collegiate athletics for nearly eight years. Now, I study the intersection of sport and culture, teach college students, and LOVE it.
- Aside from being totally absent-minded, I'm not a typical academic... Wait. What was I going to say next?

WHAT I DO AND LOVE:
- Time with my friends and family
- Dinners, drinks and coffee with interesting people
- Run and otherwise just be physically active, especially outside (ran a marathon for my dissertation in 2013, looking to do it again in 2015)
- Volunteer with Junior League
- Read
- Listen to live music
- Learn stuff just by hanging out and talking to people (there's so much to know!)
- Root for Michigan State (GO GREEN!)
- Work on my golf game (seriously lacking from where it was 15 years ago)
- Play with my dog-nephew
- Be silly with my kid-nephew (he's 2.5 years old and amazing)

P.S.:
Photos are important - as in, you need to have them (Guys. It's a DATING site.). Winks are flattering, but send a real email and let me know you did more than look at my pictures. Yes, that's kind of a contradiction. I'm ok with it. Plus, I read everything you wrote. ;)

Interests:
Alumni connections, Book club, Coffee and conversation, Business networking, Cooking, Dining out, Movies/Videos, Museums and art, Music and concerts, Exploring new areas, Performing arts, Playing sports, Religion/Spiritual, Travel/Sightseeing, Volunteering, Watching sports, Wine tasting
Sports & exercise:
Golf, Running, Walking / Hiking, Yoga, Other types of exercise
Exercise habits:
I exercise 3-4 times per week
Pets:
Political views:
Liberal
Sign:
Don't display my sign
College:

For fun:

When I have free time, I'm usually with friends and family, out for a run, volunteering with Junior League, baking (I do not suck at baking), at a concert, reading, or just doing something random. Good game in town? I'm in for sure!

Favorite hot spots:

May's Cafe is my favorite coffee shop of ever. Friends and I dig Shorts, Saloon, Stella, Banditos, Donnellys, 126, Wig and Pen, or Wedge for food and drinks. Traveling? Let's go! Europe and Thailand were cool. Just need 7 states to get to all 50!

Favorite things:

Favorite color: Green
Favorite hobby: Laughing (I do this loudly)
Favorite TV shows: Community, Parks and Rec, and Big Bang Theory
Favorite music: U2, The Shins, The Hold Steady, Arcade Fire, J. Buffett, David Gray, Black Keys

Last read:

I read all the time, and I'll gladly tell you about it, but it's definitely teaching/research-related. A recent fun read was Bossypants by Tina Fey. I totally want to be her friend.
