Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**First and foremost...if you're going to message me, please do
better than "wats up," "how u doin," "what are you up to" (at 6:30
or 7am) or any variation of that. There's a damn good chance you
won't hear back from me if that's all you can manage. **
**Secondly, being bisexual in no way means that I have any interest
in getting involved with a couple. Do not send me solicitations to
be your third, please.**
I'm a bit of a conundrum, but somehow that works for me. I like a
pretty large variety of things, and I'll try most anything once.
It's fun to surprise myself and I have certainly learned to laugh
at myself. I am a very graceful klutz. I can't live without music
and dancing, even if it just takes place at home. I love my little
brother, but a character in one of his shorts was wrong when he
said "Milli Vanilli in your bedroom is NOT an ethnic club!" I dare
you to make a club in your bedroom!
I tend to think too much which is both good and bad at times. I
have issues with blueberry flavoring and I am very fed up with MSG.
I have the stupidest food allergies ever, but at least they don't
kill me (I tend to eat and drink things I'm allergic to anyway when
I can't stomp out the cravings...then again, it's more difficult to
avoid them than not).
When I was very little I refused to wear pants except for on my
head and then spent about the same amount of time refusing to wear
I am very much a sap and also very much okay with that. I think I
have teared up at every episode of Extreme Home Makeover that I
I was out of the US for the entire second half of my 20s...and even
after being back for 3 years, I'm finding adjusting rather
difficult. It's odd being where I grew up again, but feeling
homesick a lot. Hopefully that will subside, but there's now
another home that will forever be a part of me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Occasionally finding a use for my BA in psych and still haven't
given up on the 4 and a half years I spent in art school. I miss my
darkroom and being able to find the 'right' kind of wire and
moulding plaster. Ace Hardware Pool City, Baer Fabric, and Tandy
Leather all being gone has been extremely hard to take.
I wear contacts most of the time, but if you see me without
glasses, it doesn't mean that I can see you.
I'm constantly amazed and amused by things I quietly took for
granted before. Like clothes dryers. It's truly odd the things that
I could and couldn't find in China... (add to that deli meat, shoes
and pants that fit properly, aloe vera gel, garlic salt, raw
However, I discovered that I actually like scrambled eggs,
mushrooms and offal. Still won't do curry, cilantro or Indian food
However, I go through bouts of trying to cut back out and/or reduce
my intake of certain foods/ingredients. I do best cooking for
myself...but brilliant restaurants are worth indulging in.
I used to live a large portion of my life online. The easiest way
to explain what I used do would be to say that I was an Internet
strategist. However, I have recently taken that to VERY part time
(only retaining 3 clients that I respect and admire) as I just
started a job as a social worker for individuals with
developmental/intellectual disabilities. It's a TON of work, but so
worth it. I am extremely happy to finally have a job where I am
working to help people instead of working to make money for someone
I like to make things. And I always listen to music and dance
randomly and shyly trying to convince myself that no one is
Trying to get to a gym more often. Thought having one that is open
24 hours would help with that, but didn't after 6 months. Joined a
better gym…but then they were bought out and went way downhill. I
go to my alma mater's gym when pain doesn't prevent me.
I can be very word-oriented. I believe that action and non-action
can speak just as loudly as words. There are a few words that would
be nice to all but eradicate from the dictionary, or at least
change their general usage of. I'm a fan of respect for others'
beliefs, and if you ask me to stop saying a particular word that
you find offensive and/or damaging, I would hope that you would
make an effort to stop saying it so much around me as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
laughing, untangling things, dancing with myself, but not so much
at dancing with people, cooking, knitting, making odd things,
driving, being adaptable and rolling with it, making all sorts of
mashed potatoes and fudge.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
would be my eyes and my booty...less so how truly shy I can be.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love sandwiches more than any kind of food. Giving up my
tastebuds' love of wheat in favor of my body's dislike of it has
not been easy.
I'll read at least 100 pages of anything, listen to any song twice,
and watch at least 30 minutes of any movie. I don't play favorites,
and I like to give most things a real try before writing them
I am very addicted to So You Think You Can Dance.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
music, quotes that stand on their own, essential oils, a good
hoodie, hugs when i deeply require them
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
work, the state of the world, art, books I've read, trying to get
past the occasional writer's block, wondering if I am going to
adjust to living in the US again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
lately just working, but I make it out to various places if I hear
of something worth checking out.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I was adopted at birth and feel very lucky to have been. My
family is amazing. Sometimes the universe corrects itself and the
results are as they should be.
i sometimes watch very silly stuff on belated TV. i can't help but
be occasionally intrigued by what fictional people experience when
it's vaguely based in some bit of truth. and i'm simply addicted to
So You Think You Can Dance.
clearly i have issues with being redundant... especially on days
when i forget to put my brain back in.
You should message me if

you actually have something to say. If you just send me a message
only saying "hi," (or a variation of that and nothing more) there's
a good chance I won't reply. Same goes for redundant questions. If
you don't have time to at least skim my profile, then I probably
don't have the time to reply to you.
