Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am very passionate, ambitious, and an over-achieving
perfectionist (until I get bored).
I have traveled a lot in my life and have been to 16 countries. I
can't even really remember all of the names of the countries I have
been to, and I certainly can't count them all--I only have 10
fingers (I say "only," but this is actually an above average number
I excel at many things (except surfing, speling, and thinking
inside the box (and anything involving strength, wit, intellect,
emotion, or skill of any kind)).
I have trouble eating the very last bite. Conceptually, it is
always appealing, but physically, it is impossible. I need someone
who will eat it for me or I will feel like things have been left
undone for the rest of my life. Are you the man who will eat the
last bite for me?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Biology, medicine, science, playing with animals. Smiling at silly
things that not many people will understand or find funny. Packing
light when I travel. Getting literally the very last drop out of
the toothpaste tube before throwing it out.
I am an artist. Oil, watercolor, pencil, blood (just kidding
(unless you like that (then I am totally serious (but not
really)))). That was not a complete sentence, but I am okay with
that because I took some poetic licence. I also write poetry and
prose. Additionally, I used to act in school plays (don't worry; I
won't upstage you (unless you make me mad)).
I was worked like a horse when I was little and learned to paint,
sand, fix toilets, and build things by the time I was eight. I have
my own (very respectable) toolbox and usually do things myself
before calling anyone else to do it (unless I am feeling lazy or if
its a gross job--insert more squealing here--then it's a job for
you (but I will certainly watch and offer loads of moral support
(eg. my big strong man is reaching in and pulling my friend's cell
phone out of the toilet! I'm so proud!))).
The first things people usually notice about me

I am a human female. I am chasing an animal of some sort while
squealing. I am laughing at something that you cannot and probably
will not ever understand. I will marry the man that laughs before I

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Brain, food, water, room to move, a body, time, seventh answer.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This is a true statement.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Rolling in the dead leaves of a nearby deciduous tree, getting hit
by cars, hitting others with my car, taking pictures of members of
the animal kingdom, NOT rolling in snow, NOT securing myself
appropriately, missing my bus stop, burning myself severely,
choosing an outfit for my takkitak, contradicting myself,
reluctantly having gum removed from my mouth by another person
(photos upon request), being either too friendly for my own good or
too unfriendly for your own good.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I poop and fart. I have freckles in strange places.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
--You are asexual.
--You are empathic, laid back, easy going, fun, caring, human,
sensible, intelligent, passionate for your career, interested,
curious, generous, loving, cuddly, sweet.
--You are Mr. 90 Degree Angle. If you don't understand what this
means, please do not send me a message asking what it is. I get
about 10 of these per day. If you don't know, and you (a) didn't
look it up yourself, and (b) send me a stupid message asking "wha
is dis means?", talking about how beautiful I am, or mentioning sex
positions at various angles, we will most certainly not get along
and I will delete your message en masse with the others.
--No beards. Sorry. It's not you, it's me.
--No identical twins. It's you, not me
--You are not a pissant.
--You must not be holding a weapon in any of your pictures.
--You will not use the word "beautiful" to describe me unless you
are talking about my brain.
