I'm trying a new approach to PlentyOfFish. Instead of trolling for dates, I'll shift my focus to meeting new friends. What a concept. The 'dating' part of online dating never felt organic to me, anyway. It was stressful, and who needs that?
HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
~Just moved to L.A. in Oct 2010 from beautiful San Diego. I miss it very much, but I'm excited to get to know my new city.
~Work nights at a restaurant; creative pursuits during the day.
~I have a small dog named Chico. He is my world, but I don't carry him around in my purse.
~I love singing. Especially in the car. I call it car-aoke.
~I spend a ridiculous amount of time on the internet. On the plus side, I am always happy to conduct research for friends.
~I use my camera phone to take photos of unimportant things such as sleeping strangers, my food and sometimes just my cleavage (if it's lookin' good that day).
~I have a dirty sense of humor.
~I am not much of a traveler. I wish I was, and I hope to get better at it someday. But I've never had a problem finding adventure right where I am.
~Most of my friends are guys. I am not a tomboy and I'm no sports fanatic -- I just get along better with dudes. Many girls are shady, but I've managed to find a handful that I would trust with my life. That's all I need.
~I am a bit of a schizo when it comes to eating. I love food, from fine dining to IHOP. I cut pork out of my diet a couple years ago, but boy do I miss bacon. Sometimes I cheat. At home I try to keep it healthy so I can be bad when I eat out.
~I cut my own hair, and I'll cut yours too, if you let me.

You are rad. Based on my list of interests and activities, you think we'd get along. You are adventurous, open-minded, a good sport and most importantly, you are super duper fun. If you are not already a fun person, please do not attempt to befriend me. I am not interested in bringing out the fun in someone -- unless of course you are hilarious and you're just in a rut. You might have potential.
