Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Please be advised for this public service announcement.
As it says at the bottom of my profile, which most do not seem to
get to, I am in a relationship. I repeat, I'm happily taken.
However, as it also says below, I still have my account because I
enjoy meeting new people. Seeing as one of the options is "for new
friends," I don't see an issue with this. I love conversation and
talking with strangers. If you'd like that as well, without the
expectation of a prospective relationship, then keep reading below,
and maybe send me a message. I'd love to meet you.
So I've heard that, unlike E-Harmony and Match.com which people use
to find their future life partner, OkCupid is basically for casual
hookups. I'll just say upfront, this is not what I'm looking for. I
am a "date for a while before getting physical" kind of person, so
if a more Craigslist kind of experience is what you are after, I'll
save you the trouble now.
Still reading? Great. Now let me throw in the next bit of news... I
have a physical disability. I won't go into extreme details, but
just think paraplegia in the upper extremities. It doesn't effect
much of my life, but it is there, and it is noticeable. I don't
often use dating sites, since the life of a college student is like
one giant in-person dating site, but in the past I have found it
was better to get any strange surprises out in the open as soon as
Now are you still reading? Fantastic. Besides having a disability
and not being willing to give a blow job behind a dumpster, I'm not
sure what else to include in my self summary. Basically, I'd call
myself a pretty well rounded person... I love reading fantasy books
and playing video games, shopping at the mall and getting my hair
done, watching movies and trashy reality television, going to the
bar for a drink and whatever Cleveland sports team I'm sadly
cheering for, or playing outside with the neighborhood kids.
I guess if I included anymore, my summary would become an
autobiography, which I already write enough of on facebook. So if
you want to know more, read more of these intense, personality
revealing questions... or just send me a message.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a college graduate, earning my BA in Sociology. I'm now in law
school to be a disability rights attorney, and I'm also working on
a Master's degree in Public Administration.
So other than seeing friends on the weekends, studying is my life,
and will continue to be for the next few years. But hey, future
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
While I have many small talents, I'm not sure I would consider
myself REALLY good at anything. Some things I like to do and have
been complimented on are singing, writing, and art (or creativity
in general). I'm a crafty person.
I'm also a very social person, and can strike up a conversation
with anyone I run into. It's amazing what interesting things you
can learn from a complete stranger.
And I guess I'll include intelligence, though I tend to dislike
people who brag about their own intelligence. I like smart people,
not pompous ones. But spending my entire life thus far in school,
I'm pretty good at being a student.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My short stature and young face. I am frequently handed children's
menus at restaurants, so the first thing many people notice about
me is my mature speech, triggering a lightbulb in their head that
says "oh hey, I don't think she's actually 12."
Other than that, I think my ease and ability to smile and laugh in
social situations is what draws people to me. Yes, I can be shy and
nervous at times, but all it takes to push through is a joke or
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Oh god, this section could take me days to write. So I'll try to
stick to generalities.
Books - Anything fantasy or sci-fi, action and adventure, or
tear-jerking and romantic. I like reading young adult novels as
well as more intellectual pieces. I also love reading personal
memoirs by my favorite actors or comedians.
Movies - Basically all of them. I have certain movies that I can
watch a million times, but I will watch anything once.
Shows - I love Fox dramas, CBS comedy shows, and reality
competition shows like Survivor (my guilty pleasure) and Master
Chef. Some of my favorite shows include Scrubs, the Big Bang
Theory, and South Park. I also love Scandal, and I just started
getting into Breaking Bad. And let's not forget our favorite
character-murder-fests, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.
Music - Everything. I prefer not to listen to a small selection
(like scream metal, dubstep, or hardcore rap), but I can listen to
and appreciate every type of music.
Food - I love most food. I especially love meat, but have recently
considered giving it up. It is really hard to want to eat meat once
you learn about the treatment of animals in the food industry.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hmm, I'm pretty sure if I were on a deserted island, I would want a
lot more than 6 things. But if I'm strictly limited to 6 (because I
do fear the internet police ticketing me for not following the
People - Not rude or ignorant or annoying people, but those I deem
worthy to have a place in my life. I couldn't imagine being alone
for too long.
Movies - If I had to pick just one form of entertainment, I'd pick
movies. I'm a huge film buff, and am at the theater at least twice
Pepsi - I seriously can't do without it. No really, I've
Nature - While I love city living, I can't spend every moment of my
life in a concrete jungle. I love the peaceful and inspiring
natural world, so being near at least a large park is an absolute
must. I'm going to throw pets/animals in with this category, so I
can squeeze a couple more things in.
Chocolate - I am a woman, need I say more?
Humor - If you can't laugh, you can't be my friend. Seriously.
Laughter is life.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social issues. Inequality and unfairness. It's what drives me to
get through law school.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I love going out as much as I love staying in. I'm not a huge
drinker, so I don't frequent bars more than once or twice a month.
But I love going out to dinner, or the movies, or a shopping
Staying in usually involves take out or junk food, and a good movie
or video game. I'm also hugely into board games right now. I'd say
it has reached addiction status.

I am in a committed relationship now, but I always love meeting new
people and making new friends. If anything I said sounds good to
