I'm looking for a partner-in-crime who enjoys the outdoors and isn't afraid to step on the dancefloor from time-to-time.
Don't worry if you have 'two left feet' - I spent six years training at the Gangnam-Style School of Dance, and can teach you how to do the hokey pokey for a nominal fee. As open-minded as I am, I have to draw the line at cigarettes. My cat Felix loves to meet new people, but if you're allergic to fur, the two of you probably won't get along.
She has a Master's degree in writing and a Bachelor of Arts in English and anthropology.
Her creative work has been published in several small literary magazines.
Often, when someone says “so, tell me about yourself,” your mind goes blank.
The options are so vast that it may be difficult to choose which details you might share with a new acquaintance.
That’s simply not something we can afford in today’s economy- those of us freshly out of college (and facing an impending avalanche of debt) least of all. As baffling as it might sound at first, all the info you’re about to give should (and can) be communicated within the space of about a minute, if not less.
Part of this is to hold the attention of the employer, but it’s mostly to help you keep yourself in check.
Cooking is one of my greatest passions in life and I dream of one day starting my own restaurant.No one’s saying you can’t enjoy these things, but everyone does. We would love to read an online dating profile that states “Hi, I’m Janet and I love to cry.Find a way to package and explain that in a creative, engaging way. Before we depart on this illegal odyssey perhaps we should figure out what kind of crime we will be getting our kicks to. Or perhaps breaking and entering is your date of choice. If you love to cry as well, please reach out so we can cry together.’’ Saying you love to laugh is like saying you love oxygen. We should stop announcing it as if it makes us unique and be a bit more imaginative. Same problem as 'partner in crime.' You’re clearly not working hard at coming up with your own words to describe yourself.When we’re nervous, we can have a tendency to overexplain ourselves and bury the relevant information under a wave of redundancy and repetition.Less really is more, and with these opening seconds serving as the most important element of the interview, you really can’t afford to screw them up.
