Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Gonna say right off the bat, if you don't like weird people, better
walk away. I read a lot, am an avid knitter, am interested in lots
of things (think everything from urban planning, to zoology
(biospeleology FTW!), to the sociology of gender, to the history of
railroads in North America), and am probably best superficially
described as an adorable intellectual who owns a lot of items with
representations of skulls on them. Not necessarily human
I currently am on track to work as a therapist in a few years. The
plan is that this job will A) help people, and B) not get boring.
Hopefully in that order.
My favorite people are openly and unashamedly unique... also, my
pet peeves are stupidity, narrow-mindedness, and excessive
I am eccentric, nice, and a bookworm.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Soaking up information like a sponge. Yet always forgetting where I
left my phone.
Seriously, it keeps disappearing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing. Imagining. Being diplomatic. Reasoning with people. Arts
and crafts. Talking things up. Making my characters real.
Explaining things to people. The kind of ability to follow
instructions and sit still for two straight hours that makes a
person a good candidate for a college education. Sticking to my
philosophy of pretending there's no such thing as a stupid
question. Child care, apparently.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm usually oddly dressed and often have my nose in a book. I laugh
a lot. And I'm pretty non-threatening-looking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My three favorite book series are written by, respectively:
Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
M. Alice LeGrow
I also adore Neil Gaiman's work, and am waaaaay into the podcast
Welcome to Night Vale.
Favorite TV shows are probably the original Twilight Zone,
Sherlock, Archer, Young Justice, and The US of Tara. I will also
nerd out over Doctor Who and Star Trek (Voyager's the best!).
This is an extremely partial list, but there you go.
Hands down, my favorite band is White Lies. I just love them. So
much. Second favorite is the Editors for being sorta a slightly
less good version of White Lies.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Physical things? I'm going to pretend this means physical things,
not counting other people and stuff like water/fire/weather
Books, WWW access, museums, writing implements, music players,
aaaaand... I dunno. That's all I can think of right now besides
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Complex daydreams occupy most of my thinking time. I have loads of
storylines in a bunch of different universes (from
TV/movies/books), and tons more characters. Other than that...
brainstorming for art projects, figuring how to manage my to-do
list, and contemplating how things work.
I am also currently building a career in a social science field
that requires lots of reading and writing and thoughts.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading recreationally, hanging out with friends, volunteering,
watching TV, eating while doing one or both of those things,
homework, surfing the web, working on an art project, or pacing
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm listed as "Seeing Someone" even though I'm not, only because I
get way way way more creepy pointless messages when I'm listed as
single. I'm banking on the assumption that people who read entire
profiles are more likely to be polite and respectful of this fact.

goodbye and good luck! I am currently not available for any sexual
