I've been in Providence just long enough to be a townie, but not long enough to be a local. The latter category, I think, requires "since you were born" if not "for three generations".
A collection of mostly true things that are mostly "I" statements:
I'm not a vegetarian, but I don't like meat very much, and I never eat red meat any more. It doesn't bother me when people eat meat, but it bothers me when they do so without seeming to understand that it came from an animal.
I have a strange knack for finding four-leaf clovers.
My wife calls me Princess. It can't be true; I cook. *
I used to have a crush on Pippi Longstockings, Red Fraggle, and Polly O'Keefe. For certain values of "used to".
I'm awfully fond of the sorts of things people associate with coffee shops for someone who doesn't like coffee.
I'm a feminist, but only for the chicks.
I am not corrigible. Could not possibly be corriged. Try to corrige me, you'll just be disappointed.
I am judging you for your answer on the 89547 question, but just a little. More if you've marked one of the wrong answers as the only acceptable one. Hint: you probably have.
I don't have a degree. I mention it because it surprises a lot of people. I'd refer to myself as an "autodidact" if that weren't both pretentious and redundant; who *isn't* self-educated?
My gentle, all-natural formula will soothe away aches and pains. For topical or alimentary use only.
I act like a gas in social situations, both in the sense that I'm funny and in the sense that I expand to fill available social space. Maybe this just makes me a gasbag.
I like you in those glasses.
I'm told I'm like a "svelte bear", but I don't know if that's the member of the family Ursidae or the large and hairy brand of gay men.
I prove the rule.
I am over 30 years old and standing on my balcony filling my neighborhood with soap bubbles.
I'm famous on the intranet.
Things I have brought to a first date include: crayons, chocolates, handcuffs, Good Omens, absinthe, and a duffel bag with three day's worth of clothes. Different dates, though.
I am a skinny little emo kid trapped in the body of an Indiana farmboy.
I get along best with women who get along best with men. I don't pretend to understand why that is.
I tune out anyone the moment they say something about how "girly" or "manly" they are. I may not be androgynous, but my politics are.
I am low but non-zero maintenance.
I moonlight as a game designer, for card games, board games, tabletop games, etc. I have a few published credits that I'll point out if you're curious.
I have a song in my heart, a kite in my pocket, and a bottle opener on my head.
I'm not so superficial that I'll look at your pictures instead of reading your profile, but I'm just superficial enough that I'll look at your pictures first. Then I'll read your profile.
I get a little weirded out when I have a high match percentage with someone who looks too normal.
