Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**In the process of editing this profile to target platonic
relationships rather than romantic ones. I wonder how well OKC
works for making new friends?
Nerd, optimist, autodidact, enigma.
I think I'm a good mix of emotional (thoughtful, caring etc.) and
rational (good at stifling insecurities and all of that girly
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Getting lost and unwanted pets into good homes, avoiding housework,
practicing my ongoing impersonation of an adult, and plotting my
Exercising more these days, which is nice.
Really what I'm doing is working a lot. Suitors beware,
availability is limited.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking. Walking in other people's shoes. "Reading" animals.
Cooking. Self-sufficiency. Procrastinating.
My co-workers have all told me that I'm extremely patient (we work
with very difficult people sometimes). Anger and ignorance don't
faze me much.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Apparently I always look tired. My resting expression is also kind
of serious/stern, which is a bit dismaying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The books that have probably had the greatest impact on me in the
last few years are the Farseer and Tawny Man trilogies by Robin
Hobb. Also a fan of the Song of Ice and Fire books, though I hit a
bit of reader's apathy at book four and haven't picked it up again
yet. I LOVE Jorge Luis Borges and Mervyn Peake. Also Calvin and
Favorite movie, if I had to pick one, would probably be Shawshank
Redemption. It's such a serious movie, but I love it because it's
about hope and the triumph of character over circumstance, and
friendship. I also think 12 Angry Men is one of the most perfect
movies ever made.
Favorite shows? I re-watch Firefly often, secretly hoping it won't
end abruptly this time around. I recently discovered and watched
the entire run of Community, now I'm on to Parks and Rec. Old
favorites are Friends, Scrubs, Star Trek: TNG and NYPD Blue. I
watch the Late Late Show regularly, more for the host than for the
B celebrities that come on. Favorite animes are Cowboy Bebop, FMA:
Brotherhood, and FLCL... and Cowboy Bebop again.
For music, safe to say I will happily listen to rock and roll and
most of its sub-genres. I don't really have favorite bands or
artists because everyone has a handful of bad/just average songs,
but I do like most things by Pink Ffloyd, Counting Crows and They
Might Be Giants. With other genres I like things on a case-by-case
basis, I can enjoy some rap but not all, same with classical, etc.
My phone is full of film and video game scores and weird silly
songs like Yes We Have No Bananas and Kung Fu Fighting.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sarcastically Literal Six -
Materialistic Six -
Good sharp knives
A good pair of shoes
Money... this one might belong in the literal six.
Spiritual Six -
Trees and birds and all those nature-y things (yet still I love New
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Deep philosophical questions, the origins of random words, and the
problem of how to have a social life when one works weekends.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Work late, get home, walk dog, read/Reddit/Rocksmith/study. I will
go out sometimes as well despite working the next day.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hate Harry Potter. I read all seven books just to make sure he
didn't develop any redeeming qualities.
