Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved to Wichita (though I grew up in another part of Kansas)
from Washington about three years ago. I don't particularly love
the big city and I could probably live contently in a cabin far out
in the woods sometimes. I love getting close to nature, whether its
messing around in the dirt, or just laying out on a grassey hill
staring at the sky.
I also love cooking, and expanding my cooking genres...I am a
for the normal reasons but because to me... it tastes bad...kind of
rotten and bitter. I'm not an ass about how I eat though, unless
someone *makes* it an issue. Time with a more vegetable based diet
helps me expand my cooking base a bit, which is nice. I can still
cook very good meat dishes though. I bake too, occasionally.
I really like camping and hiking, as well as having a chance to go
to the gym. I'm not a gym rat by any means, but it's a great way to
blow off steam. If you just want a gym partner in the area, let me
know! I'm good at kicking my own ass at that place.
I'm easy to get along with unless you have a knack for getting on
my bad side.
And for those who care about sports, I'm picky in what I like. I
prefer hockey and baseball. I'm an Avalanche, Canucks, and Red Sox
fan. Deal with it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I got my BA in Rhetoric/Professional Writing with a minor in
Decided I couldn't do much with that, so I got an MA in Literature
focusing on Pre/Medieval and 20/21st C. Lit. It's something I'm
good at, but I realized it's not what I want to be stuck with all
of my life. Mostly, all I could do with it was teach or go on to
law school, so now I'm finishing up a MA in Anthropology. It's
something I'm passionate about and it's very versatile.
I miss the west coast- I've been applying for jobs teaching at
community and junior colleges up in western Washington for next
year, and I really hope everything works out. (Note this means
relocation is in my near future which is why I'm looking for
"short-term" dating, keep this in mind when contacting me unless
you'd be willing to move).
So much to learn and so little time...at least I have many years
ahead of me.
I've recently gotten into running and some other sports I'd never
touched before. Can't say I'm terribly good, but it's important to
me that I keep improving. I'd like to find someone that has an
active lifestyle similar to the level I'm on.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
, and academia in
general. I dont like to do dishes but I do them well. I like
cooking, and I also do that well. I'm good at thinking things out.
I'm good at helping people through problems, and neglecting my own.
I can hide feelings well, and I have more logic than most. I think
peanut butter is awesome and strawberries are the best thing to
have at a picnic.
My annoying fail: As musical as I am, I can't whistle. :-p
The first things people usually notice about me

Maybe people notice my friends before they notice me, or physically
that my eyes change color?
As a friend added as an edit "At least one person has picked up on
my creative and artistic side as a first impression. Also, it's not
hard to notice I'm just plain awesome."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
A) Book: Einsteins Dreams by Alan Lightman, Inferno by Dante,
Illusions by Richard Bach, Most Anne Rice and Mary Higgins
B) Movie: My favorite is "Whale Rider", then RENT, and Moulin
Rouge!, but I like a lot of Sci-Fi and Dramatic movies too. I'm
also big on comedy and animated movies (which usually go hand in
hand) like Shaun of the Dead, What About Bob, Office Space, Ice
Age, etc. I think I just like movies in general.
I love Zombie movies! Of any kind! I actually like zombie
anything... I'm planning on going to the Zombie 5K this year...just
so I can run and be chased by zombies...
C) Music: All kinds except half of the country music out there, and
most of the rap. My favorite bands include Seal, Soul Coughing,
James Blunt, ZZTop,Steppenwolf, Five for Fighting and Aerosmith,
plus a bunch more.
D) Food: Depends on who cooks it, but I like the simple stuff. I
like homemade pizza, and mexican food. Particular favorites include
mushrooms, cheese, strawberries, mashed potatoes and gravy, ice
cream, and on occasion chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I secretly dream of the perfect romance, but I'm kind of bummed
that reality doesn't tend to support perfect.

Honestly, if you're a loser/mooch/etc., leave me alone. Right now
with so much going on, I can't support someone else who isn't able
to support themselves, both physically and mentally.
