Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I take pride in the fact that I have unintentionally lived in the
home towns of some of my favorite NPR shows (Prairie Home
Companion, Car Talk, and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me).
I'm here mostly because I am keeping myself open to the possibility
of love (in either the form of friendship or romance), even though
I find it difficult to connect with someone online. Chemistry can
only really be experienced in person.
I have seen the word sapiosexual thrown around on this website. It
sounds a bit pretentious, but it's a pretty accurate way of
describing myself. Demisexual is another good term.
I would really like to change my profile name, but am too cheep to
change it, and too lazy to create an entire new profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently getting my MA in Art Education and certification to teach
K-12. I just finished student teaching this semester out in the
suburbs, and will hopefully be teaching high school next Fall.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the good in people and situations. Trusting my intuition.
Seeing the big picture. Conversing at length about random
philosophical stuff. Unconsciously giggling to myself at
inappropriate times when I remember something funny.
I'm also moderately good at understanding and appreciating
empirical research. So if that's your field, I will at least
understand what you mean by a "p value" and why it's significant
(does that count as a pun?).

Someone told me once that it looks like I know what I am doing all
the time; do not be fooled by this...

Food: Anything with lots of flavor, nothing boring or safe except
for my Mother's pasta, although that isn't boring, just comforting.
I consider myself to be a foodie. I think most of my spare cash
goes towards dining, travel and art supplies. I try to eat healthy
and keep away from processed foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
"What am I forgetting... I know I am forgetting something!"
What different versions of myself are like in alternate dimensions.
Also along those lines, how much parts of our cultures would be
different if our physical bodies or environment were slightly
different (such as six fingers instead of five, or if we were cold
blooded instead of warm).
The intersections between art and psychology and just visual
culture in general.
My friends, family and loved ones.
Politics, playing devil's advocate.
Color - How beautiful, intriguing, fleeting and relative color is,
and the science behind it. Because color is just a wave of light
and light is universally fascinating.
How language - religion - culture - social roles - tradition - art
- etc. are all relative and arbitrary but still imperative for
living a meaningful life - and how we negotiate when these things
no longer serve to add meaning to our lives.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably exhausted from my 60 hour grad school week and watching a
good movie with a glass of wine.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It might take me a while to warm up to somebody new, but once I do
I am fiercely loyal.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have managed to read my entire profile and have a filled out
profile of your own for me to read.
If you don't mind hanging with a girl who is a bit nerdy, a bit of
a jock, tall and artsy.
Ultimately I am looking for the yin to my yang (which according to
the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator would be someone with an ENFJ
personality type, if you take stock into that sort of thing), which
means that we don't have to love the same TV shows but have similar
values and long term goals.
I hope to find someone who can push me intellectually and connect
with me emotionally. I want someone who is different enough from me
to complement my personality and keep things interesting, but has
similar enough morals and long term goals to keep our relationship
grounded. It sounds cheesy, but I am looking for someone who is a
friend first, someone I can trust, respect and adore. Someone who
gets my humor and is easy to talk with. Then the sexy stuff is like
the frosting on top of the cake.
