Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I have strangely cold hands. I'm not sure how is relevant
information for okcupid, but a friend and I were talking about it
today, and suddenly it feels like a "need to know." I mean, who
isn't interested in my hand temperature?
I'm not really sure what I just did there. This self-summary is
kind of terrible. I will probably delete it soon. Self- summaries
are much harder to write than one would expect. And now I am
thinking that my inability to write a self summary is a reflection
of the fact that I lack a self awareness. But I over think things
like that all the time (at least I know that about myself,
I guess I'll talk about what I am looking for in a person/
I want someone who will push me into trying new things and having
new experiences. This is not to say that I can't do this on my own,
but that I like someone who will try these new things with me, and
in turn, I would like to be that same kind of person for my
partner. (maybe I just have a dirty mind, but now I am worried
about people writing to me about new sexual experiences. Does me
mentioning this negate it or make it worse?)
I also want someone who will chill with me and watch a million
hours of netflix in one sitting while eating from separate ice
cream cartons. (or you can eat whatever you want I guess, but I
just need an entire ice cream carton to myself - it's rare that
Someone who will have entire conversations using only inside jokes
and who appreciates when a person repeats a joke to the point of
not being funny.
Essentially this has become really long and kind of weird. I am
going to stop here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Is it a cop out to say that "I'm figuring things out"? It's a total
cop out, but it's one I'm going to make. I am figuring my life out
right now. I graduated in 2012 and found I missed taking classes,
so I am now taking classes in improv, printmaking, and some
occasional poetry. It's been interesting.
My day job is at a non-profit on the administrative side of things,
we do work in health and resilience, I really love the organization
but I am hoping to get into education reform in the future.
Also sleeping. I am a proponent of sleeping.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Family holiday parties
4. My lake (although I don't actually own it)
5. good books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Honestly, God. Which is kind of weird to write on a dating site and
I don't mean it in an existentialist kind of way nor a "what would
jesus do?" kind of way, I just find theology to be fascinating,
and, at times, beautiful, so I tend to think about a lot. I think
James Cone is a God-send.
I also spend an embarrassing amount of time thinking about things
like Scandal and Veronica Mars or the new Beyonce album. I try to
look at these from a feminist perspective so that I feel as if I am
bringing depth to the subject matter, but it's still a large amount
of time I spend ruminating on the world of pop culture.

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes I am out hanging with friends at a local bar or doing
something interesting like going to an art show
and sometimes I am doing my laundry and watching Netflix.
