My self-summary
All profiles are narcissistic and self-serving. Most of the important stuff in profiles is found on the "Explain my Answers" part of the match questions, where people attempt to inject nuance to the often inane match questions.
What I’m doing with my life
Just another passionate, unrepentant, rebellious semi-reformed delinquent and semi-settled nomad pretending to a higher social class than my ignorant white trash upbringing entitles me to.

I'm a ghostwriter, translator, editor, rogue.
I’m really good at
Sensing emotions. Empathy.

My world is language -- spoken language, translation, programming languages, teaching, you name it. Most of what is good in my life comes from language.

Words, morphemes, and phrases, to me are like little functional parts that combine into machines for our thoughts.

(But then again, I believe that one of the great constants of human nature is that when people ascribe characteristics to themselves, they almost always actually display the exact opposite of those characteristics. People that claim to be nice are assholes. People that claim to be classy are usually trashy. People that claim to be smart are usually pretty dim, etc. So what the fuck would I know?)
The first things people usually notice about me
I can pull on a sparkly gown and go to the steakhouse or I can strap us both to a boxcar and ride the rails.

I work hard, I PLAY HARDER. I'll rest when I'm dead and I'm NEVER GONNA DIE.

Got your passport? Let's go parasailglidebiking.

I can wear the same outfit for five days or I can crouch, naked, in the shower, and get real small.

I sleep hard. I DREAM HARDER. I'm on a rollercoaster with my dogs and Beyonce. I will get up WHEN IT'S TIME.

Got your library card? Let's go pay off some of my fines, because I don't borrow books. I lease. I like there to be a public record of my stealing something.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I burn through food like a blast furnace, so I prefer heavy, filling foods: Italian, Mexican, Indian. I love cooking.

I do have a soft spot for country music and have converted quite a few people to this poignant and ridiculous genre. I swoon for strong female vocalists -- Dar Willians, Bjork, Reba McEntire, Loretta Lynn, Sara Bareilles, Rihanna, Suzanne Vega, Dolly Parton, etc...

Why not talk about the rest of this stuff in person or something? I actually think the huge lists of interests and compatibility questions are kind of silly. What happened to mystery?
The six things I could never do without
Some stuff that's important to me:

Good family relationships.
Domestic life (cooking, maintaining a nice space, healthy routine)
A fully stocked kitchen. Cooking is like artwork you can eat.
Dancing, music.

I really enjoy dancing. Salsa, swing, others.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have been in love. Nothing else really compares. When you're both happy and excited just to fall asleep in each other's arms. To wake up with someone you care about. To cook meals together. Life is just so much better when it's shared with someone you love, and I won't give up until I have found that love that is worth hanging on to.

I don't really trust people who lack basic life skills.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You want to run a half-marathon (or fuck it, a full one) as a team.

I'm looking for someone clever, witty, and adventurous. These are seriously important qualities. You should be able to keep up, literally and figuratively.

You are kind, emotionally aware, and actually interested in a relationship rather than flitting around the internet dating forever. You are capable of giving and receiving love.

Please don't message me if -- you are rude to service employees, fundamentally unhappy with your life, get wasted like every day, look down on others that are different from you, or are otherwise a jerk in some major way. But good luck with that!
