This profile is my second on OKCupid (the other is Maijstral). I
was curious how my answers to all those match questions have
changed over the years since I joined. Have I grown more

Not worrying. I have never been able to worry much about the
future. It is far too unpredictable for me to know with any

has been that things are rarely as good or as bad as I dream or
fear they will be. Reality has a dulling effect on my actions and
