Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm empathetic, affectionate, and intelligent, and I like people
who share those qualities. I love music, books, good conversations,
physical connection, food, tea, and adventures. My friends and
family are extremely important to me.
Recently I have been told (by two separate people) that I am a
"good egg" and a "smart cookie." Not only are those awesome
compliments, but I'm really into this food imagery, so I'm going to
continue to strive to also become a hot tamale and maybe even the
I find it difficult to describe myself adequately on a dating
profile. I dunno, does this really sound like me?
I'd love to find someone who can spell and write in complete
sentences, who can make me laugh really, really hard, who will hold
up their end of a conversation with someone who thinks quickly and
talks fast, someone who's an adult when necessary but still knows
and enjoys a good night of ridiculous fun, and someone who isn't
going to mind if I'm not drinking (because I don't) but can fathom
that I'm having fun regardless of a lack of alcohol. Don't be too
buttoned up - be a little weird sometimes, you know?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a job that's reasonable but doesn't define me. It's good but
not great. You know how jobs are.
I really like to find new and ridiculous things to do, like joining
a dodgeball league or deciding to learn new circus skills (I'm
basically in Cirque du Soleil, you guys). I go to a lot of music
shows, both local and touring. Food is great, I enjoy cooking it
and also eating it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing, thinking, reading, conversing, friendship, laughing.
The limbo, the hula hoop, knitting, taking silly photos. Seriously,
you don't want to challenge me in a limbo match. I won so many CD
singles at so many bar mitzvahs in my youth, I've learned all the
Also cuddling, spending time upside down, shoveling snow like a
goddamn boss, and building flat pack furniture.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Boobs. DEFINITELY boobs.
No, but really, probably my hair. It's curly; sometimes it seems
like there is an awful lot of it.
I'm an introvert who is often mistaken for an extrovert.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like all of these things. I like reading things, eating things,
watching things, and listening to things. I especially like
listening to things.
I find it overwhelming to try to list all the things I like but
rest assured, I'm happy to talk about it in person.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Fresh air and water
Fun, interesting, and creative people
Something fuzzy and squishy to hug, like a stuffed animal, a cat, a
dog, or a person
That's more than six isn't it? Shit, guess I'm fired.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Just way way way too much stuff. I think I need to learn to

Also, although it's possible that I might want to see you naked at
some point in the undefined future, that time is not now. So, you
know, no dick pics. Save that for when it's not creepy. :)
I like getting messages that indicate that you've seen something on

cutie." I promise my messages to you will be equally well thought
