Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
***Dear Bay Area, you are lookin so fine. I'm only in town for a
day or two on a truck buying mission, but I would love to go out
with someone for some drinks, maybe see something neat? Hit me up!
You know, let me preface my enticing profile with this: i hate
dogs, I don't believe in god, and I'm pretty queer.
I'm kind of an eccentric gnome. I'm a dancing fool. Most people
like me-- I'm easy to talk to and hard to offend. I'm really nice
at first, and then i talk a ton of shit when i feel
I try to have healthy fulfilling relationships, whatever the
specifics. I'm putting my feelers out for people who are down for a
bit of commitment to honest and open communication. I'm also
putting my feelers out for people who like to dance. I'm also
feeling out gardeners. Also, I'm just feelin.
I can be obnoxiously independent at times. I'm all kinds of people
and I try to take people as they come at any particular moment. I'm
a big fan of wildly diverse behavior, and can never quite put my
finger on anything. My personal style gravitates between fairy and
I don't like video games and I don't watch television.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dancing my ass off.
I finished a liberal studies degree (Biology, English, Social
Change), worked as a landscaper for a year, dicked around in
Guatemala for 7 months, and now I'm making plans to tack a BS onto
my BA, Gardening, practicing the trumpet, playing the mandolin real
shitty, amassing a tool collection and learning how to use them,
fixing up my old ass house.
I manage a greenhouse where I propagate annuals for urban gardeners
in the west end and beyond. This year Imma cultivate vegetables for
market and for subsistence on an acre in Louisville. Also I am
making tedious plans to build a rabbit hutch and raise rabbits for
meat and manure in my backyard.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding/growing food, riding and fixing bikes, talking to people,
eating everything on my plate (read: everything), remembering and
appreciating the fecundity of life, and all the fabulous ways it
can smell, forgiving people, going on with my life, approaching
cats, surviving the heat and cold of Kentucky, taking things in
from an ambivalent perspective, furious digging, going on and on
about plants, lifting and moving things, avoiding the need for
money when required
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
my awesome dance moves
Covered in dirt
my general acceptance of almost everything
The metal in and around my mouth
wanton, if subtle, disregard for gender norms
Too-willing to meet up with people I meet on okcupid without any
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Old-Time music, R&B, spicy/ "exotic"/ fermented food/beverages,
not really into TV...unless used as an excuse to sit still and
cuddle.. Are you really reading this? This is so inconsequential.
If my taste in serial television interests you, you will probably
bore me to tears. I read mostly heady nonfiction about plant
nutrition and hide tanning, but in a past life I loved the poetry
of rumi, charles bukowski, Gregory Orr, and frank x walker.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A Maddock (hoe/pick-axe, crucial for urban gardening)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
social/environmental justice: how human civilization fucks itself
and everything else on the planet, and how it could (or maybe could
not) be otherwise
political economy: what the world I live in looks like, why it
looks like that; what I'd like it to look like, how to live there
now, why and how to give a shit
gardens/permaculture: soil chemistry and composition
PLANTS: their names, classifications, growth habits, tastes,
smells, uses, abuses, physiology and chemistry
self-sustinance, interconnectedness, future earth bathed in
practical spirituality, practical nihilism
artful sentence structure, really good phrases
preventative/herbal/holistic health, and the part that the mind
Biology/ecology:where my place is in the natural world? What about
the world isn't natural?
Death:what's that all about, and how do I live with it? Is today
the day? Is this moment the moment?
Love: wtf is that supposed to mean?
The differences between who I say that I am, who I think that I am,
and who I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
dancin or hanging out with friends. Doing "insanity" (a really
rigerous cardio workout), cooking dinner, drinking, keeping an ever
watchful eye on my plant babies.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I deleted all the stuff I had written here because I think it
sounded too weird for first impressions, haha. I come off as almost
effervescent, but I can be very heavy if I think you can handle it.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want help planning or planting a garden or want to help me
with mine...or just if you want to pick strawberries and mulberries
(blackberries by mid june, i think) I'm really dying to hear your
life story and what sort of dreams you've had recently. Quiero
encontrar más personas que hablan español, o quierren practicar--
nesecito practicar! Can we just keep it light and friendly for a
minute? I'd like to go for a walk in the woods..or maybe for a
drink? A jog? Seriously though, can we meet? A date sounds really
nice ( even if it isn't meant to be). I do this line dancing thing
called Contra every Monday night, I'm sure you'll love it. Enough
with the dicking around on the internet!
