Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Just your basic weirdo on a dating site, who couldn't really care
less if I get any dates. Most of the conversations have been
interesting in some form or another, though. Meeting new people in
any medium is just about always fun, regardless of what ends up
I'm rather frustrated with OKCupid's questions. Just because I'll
accept any answer on a question from a potential partner does NOT
mean the question/issue itself is irrelevant to me. It simply means
I have an open mind, and don't insist that everyone I interact with
have the same outlook as myself. The romance of a kiss in Paris vs.
a kiss in a tent in the woods depends greatly on who I'm with...
and the weather. Do I believe in God? Depends on how one defines
"God" (or "god", for that matter...).
Apparently OKCupid defaults one's status to "Available" if one is
looking for dates. To clarify, however, I'm very happily married,
in an open relationship. My husband will always have top priority
in my life, so keep that in mind.
In related news, my husband has an OKCupid profile, and I find it
amusing that OKCupid rates us as: 66% Match 47% Friend 33%
EDIT 05/07/2014: Apparently, OKCupid has filters now. I hate this
idea. Granted, I toyed with maybe setting up one for % match, but
the percent I'd set it at would have ruled out my husband right off
the bat. It also means that any message that is sent to me has the
potential of never being seen by me. It takes away my own power to
judge for myself. I find that insulting. I also dislike that
someone might message me (or anyone else), and never even get the
courtesy of a reply, even if the reply is "Thank you, but I'm not
interested." or even "That was an incredibly rude way to approach a
person. Not only am I not interested, but you might want to
re-think your approach to others in the future." Everyone deserves
a hello, and not to have their message floating around the ether
EDIT 02/03/2015: Just found out you can set your orientation to
pansexual and sapiosexual. w00t! Also, I'm displeased with the
dropdown choices for drugs and drinking. I drink more "sometimes"
than "rarely", and I'd classify my drug use as "rare", if that. I
hate to put none, 'cause that would mean, to me, that I've never
touched any illegal drug, ever, which isn't true, either. *shrug*
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work a full-time job, a part-time job, and I'm also taking
classes. I try to fit a social life in there somewhere, but
scheduling is a bitch.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That's not meant to be self-deprecating. It's just that you'd kinda
hafta be blind not to notice. :)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - controversial history; Laurell K. Hamilton; new and/or
controversial science; George R. R. Martin; "fluff"... whatever
strikes my fancy at the time
Movies - Contact, Love Actually, The Princess Bride, American
Beauty, Dogma, Se7en
Music - prefer rock/alternative, but like most
Foods - local
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
One can pretty much learn to live without anything except
food/water and shelter/clothing (depending on the climate).
Everything else is superfluous. That being said, my life would be
very different, and very much LESS without my husband, my cats, my
friends, my family, and my connection to the Universe. I'm also
terribly fond of sustainable just-about-anything, the internet,
sex, a clean house, and financial security - whether or not I have
any or all of those things at any given time is questionable.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my own motivations and evolution.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
