Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
WARNING: This is going to be an essay. So pour yourself a glass of

I try to live by this mantra:
"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain
make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take
pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you
still believe it to be a beautiful place." - Kurt Vonnegut
^ As you can see, I am an idealistic dreamer.
I am a walking contradiction. A ball of dynamite but I can be meek
and soft too. I am feisty but I prefer a man who can take the
A born and bred city gal who loves to be in the country. Nature
heals and I would love to be much closer to it. I feel my best when
close to hills, valleys, lakes, mountains.
Shy and reserved on the outside, underneath is someone who is
playful, cheeky, loves to tease, witty, loves to laugh and naughty!
That's how I know if we have chemistry because you are able to
bring that side out of me.
I would like someone who can see my qualities, challenge me (but
not push) to be a better person and bring me out of my box.
Essentially I am an extroverted introvert.
As a passionate person, my emotions are rich and powerful.
Therefore if you don't like to handle someone with feelings, then I
am not for you. But don't worry, I am very reasonable and stable
and do not go crazy....well...not often anyways ;P Please also be
able to express yourself well, have a personality and not be a
I value honesty and trust above all. Even as a friend, I would
expect the person to be reliable and trustworthy, anyone who
doesn't meet these expectations would be banished pretty quickly.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just Started Post Grad at PSU.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
......seeing both sides to every story. Empathizing with people. I
consider myself a Jill of all trades. I can cook, bake, has really
good and discerning taste for all things. How true are these, you
......blending in. I am a chameleon and kinda adapt to my
surroundings and the mix of people I hang out with. I feel at home
in London, fancy myself half-Californian, could see myself living
in Paris and equally comfortable in Cambodia. I can eat at a hawker
center or dress up for fine dining. I can enjoy a slapstick ala The
Dictator or savour a day at Musee du Louvre.

1. Sunblock. Yes I take care of myself.
3. Sense of humor
4. Sense of curiosity
hmmm what else....why do all begin with the letter 'S'? Trying to
think of 1 more ;)
But seriously, besides our basic needs, is there really anything we
can't live without?
So let me rephrase and put down 3 things I would need for my life
to be complete.
1. Love (friends, family)
2. Laughter (from humour and not taking things too seriously)
3. Passion (for my job, for life and with the special person)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Is there such a thing as soul-mates? How do you define it? Will I
get to meet mine in this life time?
Will l ever find someone who can meet me in all 3 ways, mentally,
emotionally and physically? It's worse than a needle in a haystack
but anything less wouldn't work, I think.
Why so many people with high match scores and interesting profiles
are all thousand of miles away.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
wishing I was attending a rock concert, visiting a musuem, snow
skiing, watching a play, at a vineyard, cuddling up with you....
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Never had sex in public!
And that isn't my real age. Sorry. Had to change that because some
people are ageist and I just want to be caught in the wider net.
Ask and you will be told.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are ENFJ/ENFP as we are supposed to be a good match and I would
really like to test this theory out. I would be interested to meet
all intuitives ...and I find myself really drawn to the NTs so if
you are INTJ, INTP, ENTP, message me! I am INFJ btw.
IF you have no idea what those 4 letters mean but you are MATURE,
intelligent, has depth, well travelled, well educated, kind, witty,
playful, enjoy meaningful conversations, nonjudgmental, good
looking.......... haha.... i better stop here or no one would
message me at all ;P
You no longer feel the need to prove yourself to anyone because you
are sure/confident of who you are. You're either going after your
goals or you feel like you've been there and done that and not just
any woman would do. You want someone worthy of you for long term
partnership but understand that I am still evolving and finding my
way at the moment and you have to be patient and willing to walk
the road with me too.
You like CUTE, adorable, girly sexy- yes I giggle much and laugh
loudly (gorgeous, sensual, stunning I am NOT)
Not always sugar and spice but with a healthy dose of feistiness,
is spirited who enjoys a good discussion, has a naughty streak, who
might appear unyielding but wants to be yielded.
Thanks for making it to the end. As you can see, I am wordy and if
you think you can get away with a one-liner, have no pictures and a
short profile, think again. It's my one pet peeve on this site,
people who contact me without reading my profile first duh!
