ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I have lived in Austin on and off for 20 years...and I just moved back after 5 years away. I am looking forward to all of the new things that Austin has to offer, but also looking forward to the comforts of home, including an incredible network of friends and a new job I am really excited to start in August. I grew up in South Florida, came to UT Austin for college, and have lived in Jerusalem, Ann Arbor, and Sao Paulo since then. No matter where I go, I always long for Austin, which I have decided is the best city in the world for me. It's the place I truly consider "home."

I have lived in Brazil for the past 5 years, and I have been lucky enough to hit many of the countries on this continent. (Sadly, my Portuguese is terrible and I've mixed it up with any of the Spanish I knew before I moved there.) I think that living life in another country, speaking another language is challenging...builds character, right?

Everyone on here says that they like to travel, but I really do! Traveling is what gets me through the school year and I love planning trips and exploring different cultures. There's something about figuring out a brand new city that really appeals to me...and I am an excellent navigator! I love to explore a place through its food and its people and I can people-watch for hours. I travel alone sometimes...I love the freedom that traveling by myself gives me. But I also love the shared experience of discovery that comes from having the right travel partner.

I'm a teacher, and my mom is always amazed about how good I am with kids. I try to explain to her that "it's my job to be good with kids", but she thinks I have a special talent.

I am, above all else, an extremely loyal friend. Some of the people in my life are friends that I have known since I was 9 or 10! Oddly enough, my boyfriend from the 8th Grade lives in town, so you can ask him anything. :) I'm a "connector" (did you read The Tipping Point?), or at least I used to be. In my social circles, I bring lots of different people together and I love hosting parties a few times a year. I am a huge fan of happy hour any day of the week!

In my past life in Austin, I was starting to get into the social dancing scene...I love swing, country, salsa. It's okay if you don't dance, but it's something that really makes me happy and something that I really want to get back into now that I am here. I feel like "getting fit" needs to be a priority in my life...not because I have to, but because I want to. I am looking forward to become part of a fitness community or something like that here...I still have yet to figure it out.

What else? Who am I looking for? I am looking for an amazing man. Younger or older than me..i.t doesn't matter too much as long as we are on the same general wavelength. I have dated guys 10 years younger and 10 years older...both were great experiences, but in the end, life's paths took us in different places. I feel like I need to say that I am a "young 40" (whatever that means).

I hope we have enough in common to get along but we are different enough that it keeps things interesting. You'll binge watch TV with me, but you'll also force me to go for a bike ride when the temperature dips below 90 degrees. You'll be game for a last-minute day trip, but you'll also understand when I need to grade papers over the weekend and get Thai takeout. You want to hang out with my friends sometimes and your friends sometimes. (That means that you have friends, and that they like me...A LOT.) You let me eat ice cream out of the carton.

Be fun, be cool, be dorky, be kind, and be good to yourself and others.

For fun:

I like to think I was a foodie before being a foodie was a "thing." I love dinner and a movie, live music, and if you can dance it's a major bonus!

Favorite hot spots:

I'm not sure...Austin has changed a lot in 5 years. I tend to stay away from places that are "too cool for school" or super crowded. It matters to me more who I am with than where I am.

Favorite things:

Arrested Development is back! My nyt.com subscription, podcasts, using my passport, sleeping late. No traffic. A cherry limeade on a hot summer day. Parks and Rec. Breakfast tacos, Asian noodles, Indian buffets. Fast internet. Excellent grammar.

Last read:

Looking forward to rejoining my book club, which I have been in for 10 years. I read whatever they're reading, but I have a huge list of "to-read" books and am hoping to conquer some this summer. Last great book: Behind the Beautiful Forevers.
