Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a poly-amorous anarcho-queer originally from Raleigh, NC but
I'm in the process of buying a house in Durham. I am pretty shy and
don't really have a whole lot of friends but the friends I do have
I am really close with. I like movies, dancing, walking in the
woods, knitting, yoga, meditating, bird watching, cooking delicious
vegan things, and hoping to get my scuba diving license. I've taken
on a few new hobbies as well such as I'm learning the violin, I
started taking capoeira, and I started volunteering at the bike
co-op in Durham.
I am currently working for a nonprofit that works with people
living with severe and persistent mental illness. I am passionate
about my work and love every day I get to spend there. Not many
people can say that and I feel pretty fortunate about my life and
where I am right now. I worked hard to get here and am so glad to
finally be done with school and to be able to say I finally have an
MSW. I hope to further my career by getting my LCSW and maybe even
someday have my own practice.
I am a vegan and I used to be a chef before deciding to become a
social worker. One of my favorite things to do is bake delicious
vegan treats. I love spending time in the kitchen while singing and
dancing as I cook.
I am Latina and my family is from Cuba. I believe strongly in not
just my blood family but of my friend family as well. I am a pretty
emotional person and like to talk and process things and feel
connected to the people I am with whether it be politically,
romantically, friendly, or what ever way there may be. I don't have
anything in particular that I am looking for on this site. I just
want to feel more connections to others in what ever way that might
I am shy, empathic, and queer.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I had been living in Durham for the past four years and I love it
there. I loved that I live and work in the same city doing what I
love to do, making people's lives living with mental illness a
little bit better through the power of food and self
I broke up with my longtime partner of 3 and a half years in late
January and am feeling pretty heartbroken currently and am really
not looking to start anything serious any time soon but would like
to meet new people and get out and do something fun. There's always
the possibility that could change as well.
I spend a lot of time making myself busy with lots of activities
such as capoeira, violin practice, working out, meditating,
practicing yoga, working on bikes, and learning what I can from
being in the woods.
In the process of buying a house in Durham and can not wait to have
something that is my own. I've been feeling less grounded in my
life right now and am excited about what the future holds for
That's about it. My life is not not that settled currently as I
shift my living situation and figure out where my future is headed
but I feel optimistic. I'd like to find more fun things to do in
Durham and things to get myself involved with and fun people to
hang out with as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking, gardening, bird watching, and helping others. I can vegan
bake really well which I never thought of as a skill until recently
because it always came so naturally to me.
The first things people usually notice about me

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Harry Potter, Phillip Pullman-his dark materials, hunger games,
twilight saga (I wouldn't say it's a good series but I enjoyed it
for what it is), I am not really an avid reader because I have ADD
which makes it hard for me to concentrate on anything other than
easy reads but I tend to surround myself with well read
American Beauty, Rent, sailor moon, Lord of the Rings, Harold and
Maude, Garden State, I love b movie horror flicks, anything by
Quentin Tarantino, I tend to like shows like Glee, and nashville.
Recently I have gotten into BBC shows like Dr. Who (not the
classics but the new revival), and sherlock. I love a good Rom Com
and a bottle of wine sometimes. I like disney movies (my guilty
pleasure). I haven't been watching a ton of movies as of late
because I've been trying to keep myself busy with other things but
I'd love to cuddle up to a good movie sometime.
current selections include bad pop music (because it's fun to dance
to), Mika, and all the divas out there. I like belly dance music
like Gypsy Caravan and Beats Antique. Recently I've been listening
to the grunge station on serius xm. I kind of like a mix of
anything vegan really but my favorite is comfort food like vegan
mac and cheese and eggplant Parmesan. I love dark leafy green
things and lots of fresh veggies from the garden.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
compassion and empathy
My electric blanket in the winter time
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I tend to change what I think about all the time but currently its
been how lonely I feel. Things are not going really well for me
right now as I shift my life around in a major way but I feel
confident that I will get through it and hopefully things will come
out better in the end.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with friends and watching movies. I like to go out
drinking sometimes but I'm not a heavy drinker and I don't go out
often. My life is pretty chill on the weekends. I also have violin
lessons on Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I do not consider myself a girl or a boy really but I do go by she
and sometimes they.
