Match.Com Help

Some might say I am a little too open here on the blog so posting this is no big deal. I'll take your constructive criticism. I'd like to know what you think.

So here it is:

I  am friendly and outgoing. I can talk with most people easily. I am looking to meet new people and possibly start a relationship. If asked, my friends would say that I am a good catch. I have a great sense of humor but with a sarcastic side. I am active, loyal, responsible, honest and caring. I am close with my family. I am originally from Boston though I have lived in other areas of the country.

I am looking for someone who would enjoy visiting the nooks and crannies of the Boston area. Have you found a good restaurant or bar lately? Let’s check them out together. Can you discuss everything from the Patriots offensive line to history over a cup of coffee on a rainy Sunday afternoon? If you think you’re up for the challenge, send me a note. I’d love to hear from you.

for fun:

I love to explore the Boston area or just staying home watching movies. I enjoy playing trivia each week at a local pub. I knit and can sew so I am sort of crafty. I love the summer and the warmer weather.

my job:

I work in commercial real estate.

my ethnicity:

My ancestry is half Irish and half Italian.

favorite hot spots:

I feel at home at small local bars or restaurants. I love to devour the Sunday newspaper at home over coffee. I have been to Denver, Louisville, NYC and soon to be Pittsburgh this year. I love to travel. Castle Island is my favorite place in Boston.

favorite things:

I love all sorts of food but mostly into healthy eating. I am a fan of Lost, Burn Notice and White Collar. I have all sorts of music on my MP3 player. I am a life-long Patriots fan. I am a jeans and a t-shirt kind of girl but I get dressed up also.

last read:

This morning's Metro.

my pets:

I have a 3 year old tuxedo cat named Boots.

I don't think it sounds bad. Some things like Favorite Hot Spots and Favorite Things are maxed out with words.

What do you think?


  1. Travel! I'd add that to your for fun section.

  2. If I am completely honest (and I hope that's ok), I think it's a bit dull. It's all coffee, newspapers and Boston. Topped off with knitting :)

    In my last comment, I said you should be honest. I stand by that, but I doubt you are doing yourself justice with what you have written. I am sure you are more exciting than rainy Sunday afternoons :)

    Your opening paragraph needs to demand attention and display your uniqueness. I expect that most profiles are not read in their entirety, so this has to be your opening gambit.

    I hope that wasn't too honest. I won't be offended if you decide to delete my comment :p

    If you would like more of my input (unlikely!), just let me know.

  3. Oh no, I am not offended. I asked for help and a guys pov is great. I will work on spicing it up a bit.

  4. ohhhh I like what Mark wrote but not because that's what I was thinking. Okay the first thing I saw is, switch "history" with something else. Something cute, catchy or funny. You are throwing a big one out there that you like football, but keep the attention span going...Then yeah I don't like the 2 sections you mentioned. How about rewriting those sections and trying to stick exactly to what they are intended to include. Then go back and revise to make them sound more catchy.


I love your comments!
