Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Girl seeks boy for fun and hilarity, deep discussion/inane banter,
and the usual girl/boy datey stuff.
I am smart, social, sometimes silly, and really quite lovely. You
are taller than me and can crack good jokes. A sense of humanity is
also a plus.
Likes: dancing, avocados, margheritas, PBS on Saturday afternoons.
I have come to believe that plain chips are preferable to salt and
Dislikes: goat's cheese, dickheads, soggy bread.
For references, please see my friend Kel. I am confident she will
say nice things about me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Endeavouring to have fun while I fumble along. I have given up
trying to work out where the hell I am headed. I guess that's part
of the fun.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making baba ganoosh. Sticking at things I say I'm going to do.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Margaret Atwood, Tim Winton, Jonathan Franzen, Milan Kundera.
Breaking Bad, The Wire, Mad Men. My sister just introduced me to
Dexter. Hilarious! Fight Club, Donnie Darko, all of Charlie
Kaufman's films. Kiwis make good movies: the Piano, Whale Rider,
Boy. Reality Bites is an enduring favorite.
Nick Cave! Dirty Three, PJ Harvey, David Bowie, Pixies, First Aid
Kit, Warpaint, Neko Case, Fleetwood Mac. Brazilian funk, Balkan
gypsy music, African drumming.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Cups of tea
Pottering about in the kitchen
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How much more pleasant the world would be if mosquitoes didn't
exist. Whether I'd be much happier in life if I was a florist. How
much longer humanity has got given our propensity towards self
destruction. How people can possibly find goats cheese appetizing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I expect it would be pretty tedious and unoriginal if I said
'drinking wine somewhere'. Last Friday I went for a swim. Then I
cooked a stir fry. Never a dull moment, me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This is neither the time nor the place. Please.
