Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a Socially awkward penguin. An aversion to drinking and
partying means the normal social networking options do not connect
me with people I am attracted with. I prefer to sit around reading
books, watching sappy shows or developing further nutrition
research opportunities. Whilst socially shy, I am by no means coy
or demure. I love questioning and breaking social norms, especially
publicly. This is even better if done with two!
Verbosity aside, I am a dangerously fierce feminist, prone to fits
spontaneity, and insufferably optimistic. Gender binaries can get
buried in a hole. I identify as omnisexual. I am
sex positive and ascribe to The Ethical Slut manifesto.
My socially "adept" peers sing me this mantra of OkCupid. "The odds
are good, but the goods are odd." They think it derides this site
for having weird, mentally unstable, and unacceptably socially
dissident members. I say, that saying is perfect! My definition of
hell is having to date/cojoin with a normal person.
I think that going out to a restaurant solo is perfectly normal.
I've been known to go to the cheesecake factory singleton as a
reward. I get odd looks, but hey, I'm odd and unrepentant.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After a grand foray with initially lackluster academic interest, I
worked full time for many years, after turning down management
possibilities for several years I opted to return to school. I am
in my final year of a Nutritional Science degree to become a
Registered Dietitian. From there the world is my Oyster.
Recently I am pushing for a swimmer's physique again. Oh the
cyclical nature of fitness.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being humble first and foremost.
Next off, I am extremely good at being gullible and loving
Recognizing that Good sex should be giving more than you're getting
and doesn't end nor start with a penis.
Googling me, the true test of how an individual is known, might
reveal that I am an affluent competitive magic player. I play card
games that make Poker look like a circus. For my first two years of
College this yielded more income than my job at my hotel would
My left brain thinks strategically (raised in a house of cutthroat
business folk), my right brain tries to smother the left side with
love, sex, and insanity (see social deviance).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am inseparably connected to my ipod or iphone. I always have a
book-on-tape or some form of energetic music rolling, and I am
rarely seen without the iconic white wires running from my ears or
reading a Thriller/Mystery/Romance novel via the iBooks app that
poops all over Kindles everywhere.
Unfortunately, this often makes me less approachable than I always
am, but I crush the geek stereotype of social ineptitude. I am
willingly awkward, not insufferably so.
I also have a near-fetish-like fascination with imperfection. All
my clothes have slight (sometimes more than slight) tears or
unseamed bits in them (see profile pic 1). Tattoos, piercings,
scars, freckles, you name it are enticing to me. Someone willing or
engaged in activities that could alter their bodies shows a
confidence that is not socially normative. and THAT is highly
attractive to me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Rick Riordan anything and everything, JK Rowling when
seeking out a guilty pleasure, Veronica Roth when feeling
emotional, Scott Lynch when feeling saucy, Dan Brown for my glimpse
at history done chanvist. Douglas Preston & Lincoln Child for
suspenseful horror and crime. Terry Pratchett when I'm opining for
Anglophilia. Vanessa Gray Bartel, Laurell Hamilton, Brent Weeks are
a few other guilty pleasures.
I really try to enjoy Jim Butcher and George R.R. Martin, but
they're misogynists who can die in a hole.
Movies: I am a die-hard-movie fanatic (not the Willis series, the
genre), and rarely will say no to a movie-viewing, especially with
others. Whether in a movie theatre, a home system, on a computer,
or long distance over Skype, I enjoy sharing movies with others.
Even better if the individual is nearby to share warmth with. And
even best when cuddling may ensue whilst watching. The best movies
I've watched with company I don't know how ended.
Music: Withstanding Scream-o and highly derogatory-towards-women
music (oft some rap or punk), I have yet to find music that I don't
enjoy. My ipod and iphone have a collection spanning from classical
to metal, from euro club music to Polynesian tribal chants.
Chillstep and marina and the Diamonds are my two most recent
eargasmic pleasures. I DARE you to find me a music
genre I wouldn't pseudopod into my collection. Withstanding blatant
misogyny or overt hate.
Shows: If there is romance, i'm interested. If you combine that
romance with comedy and cuteness, I'm on it. If you then add on
good writing and intriguing storylines, I will rub my face in it
and love it. I am particularly fond of witty and
quirkly-verging-on-cheesy shows. Here's just a few I adore and
could watch over and over. "Elementary, Castle, Dr Who (both pre
and post 2005), Firefly, Davinci's Demons." I also guiltily
pleasure myself by checking out competitive cooking shows of the
hilariously dramatic bent.
I also enjoy watching old campy cheesy sci shows with others. Star
Trek TNG, Seaquest, SCG-1 to name a few.
Food: I'm willing to try anything, including the most gross-out
foods you could subject me to. I prefer spicy foods, although my
tolerance for spicy is nothing to boast on. As a Nutritionist I
often have to curb my talk about food on dates, as sometimes
learning more about something so intimate can ruin the essence of
it. I make dinner dates a nightmare, and I'm aware of this. I can't
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sound: I live vicariously through my ears. All my emotions are
amplified from sound.
Romance: Whether in a form of book or a tangible reality, my brain
always needs to fulfill my inner romantic.
Smiles: Being able to see positivity despite foul circumstances is
a skill I cherish both in myself and others.
Sex: Not necessarily the visceral fluid exchange, but rather
intimacy on some level.
Friends: Socialization is important!
Hiking Boots: White Mountains in New Hampshire know my soles
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Withstanding being dragged away by friends to some equally geeky
event, I am at home, reading a book, watching a show, or studying
for some exam whilst my neighbors are rocking the house down.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I shave every day, just not my face.
My skin is a mess. Poor genes mixed with a loathing of the sun.

perfect 1-2 day old facial hair length.
