My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Let's try something different...

***I don't wear make-up, high heels or dresses. I don't go clubbing or partying. I like snakes, bugs & dirt. If any of this is a significant issue for you, please make use of the "back" button & move on to the next profile.***

We now return to the regular scheduled profile:

*looks around* So this is the box I get to put my self in? I'm not a contortionist...

Not only do we instinctively hide the most meaningful parts of ourselves from others, but the most meaningful things that make up our selves cannot be understood through words alone. It's all about perspectives, so why don't you tell me about myself? No? Mmk then, here it goes (in no particular order)...

I enjoy basically any craftwork/creative endeavours. I spend the majority of any free time I can get reading, creating, &/or out in nature. I draw, paint & write poetry to prevent my brain from exploding & to remind me of my self.

I can appreciate simplicity, but I generally prefer the complex, complicated & interconnected. I search for intensity & have an insatiable curiosity.

I enjoy manipulating metaphors. I contradict myself A LOT but I can usually come up with a logical explanation that I can at least convince myself with. I'm an empathetic misanthrope...how's that for contradiction? (Ask me & I'll explain)

I sing when I'm certain no one is listening. I don't dance. I will hug a random person if I think they could use one...& yes, trees count as people. I will also randomly give back massages to people if I think they could use one...in this case, trees don't count.

I'm an IN(T/F)J. I spend a lot of time thinking about how I feel & about how I think. Sometimes I get frustrated when people misunderstand me, but I can also understand why they do because I can't figure myself out half the time either.

In most situations I usually appear to be quiet & shy, but I also have a tendency to be random, especially under the influence of coffeine, more so under the influence of sleep deprivation (which occurs often). Yes, COFFEINE...no, I didn't spell it wrong. I hate sleeping. I love coffee. Think what you want, they are completely unrelated...mostly...unrelated I tell you! I love the smell of coffee at night & the smooth taste of it anytime. I have a love/hate relationship with sleep, because while I think there are better things to do than act comatose for 8 hours, dreaming can be good.

Apparently I step outside of my comfortable shell of introversion if I feel passionately about something. I guess my intense need to fight against what I feel is wrong overrides my intense desire to avoid the rabble.

I'm frequently found star-gazing/sky-watching & I seek solitude, which is why I love the night. Being awake, outside, at night refreshes & revitalizes me. I'm captivated by rain & I long for a good storm. Rain at midnight seems to be most brilliant than at any other time. I also love the ocean so I don't think I'll ever be able to live anywhere not close to it or some other body of water unless I'm surrounded by forests. I think part of it is because I find myself desperate for fresh air when I spend too much time in the city.

I came here for the tests, found the (original) matching system fascinating & stayed for the interesting conversations.

***Be forewarned: if you hate tree-hugging dirt worshippers (ie. ecogeeks, otherwise known as environmentalists) then move along, quickly. Also, if you resemble anything like the polar opposite of such a person, move along much more quickly & take your Hummer with you.***

I might as well get this out in the open right away. I'm a "No, Rarely, Never" (smoking, drinking, drugs) kind of person & if I do feel like interacting with people, it's generally of the same bunch. I suppose I should mention some of the types I usually don't get along with for extensive periods of time, (though I can be friendly with most): capitalists, the closed-minded, the immature (not child-like, that's okay, childish is not), those wrapped up in the media, fashion & fads, people who dislike learning & those with no manner of respect (for other people or the rest of the living world).

This warning label is cleverly disguised as a user profile.

"I am Independent, Curious, and Abstruse"
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Searching for balance, trying to find my self. I thought I had it all figured out then I ran away from my self to go find out who I was supposed to be. I'm still discovering who I am & who I can be; I don't expect it to be a short trip.

Just graduated with an Associate degree in Environmental Studies on the mainland, moved to Victoria on August 1st, and I'll be going to UVic in the fall for a double major in Geography and Environmental Studies. I also want to take some courses in Forest Sciences, Ecological Restoration, & Ethnobotany/Anthropology. I'm also fascinated by Philosophy & Forensics, & interested in Criminology, so I am trying to fit some courses in those areas as well. Learning is my life (which stems from my intense curiosity). I'm leaning more towards environmental stewardship than law enforcement for many reasons, but mostly because of one complicated reason that I won't even attempt to explain here.

I'm trying to get my passion, ambition, drive & focus back. It took me so long to realize I lost all of it & now I'm taking even longer to figure out a method of turning myself back into me again.

Eventually I believe I will study something...no, I mean my career will have to do with studying things...no, I mean studying everything; I'll be a researcher. The plan is to have a career doing forest ecology & biodiversity research/restoration in old-growth forests, though I'd settle for studying that on the side & having another career...I'm leaving that open to possibility.

The only place I have ever wanted to visit (outside of Canada, as Haida Gwaii calls to me) is Ireland, though recently I've been on a Belize kick (there was an ethnobotany field school at the college recently, based in Belize, so it's probably just a phase). There is so much to explore & beauty to see in my own backyard so I never had the "grass is greener on the other side of the fence" desire to go anywhere else, despite my curiosity. I get excited when I learn something new about the place I call home. I like knowing why it always rains here (on the coast), why there are deserts in certain areas of the province, why plants grow in some areas & not others. The natural history of British Columbia fascinates me.

I also want to try & improve my health (& get back in shape) while going to school. I plan on spending a lot of my future surrounded by untouched wilderness, which means I'll have to find some creative ways to get to those places so I better make sure I'm relatively fit...Learning Yoga is also on the agenda, though. Exploring the island on foot is as well.

I used to spend all of my extra time volunteering. Currently I only volunteer at a local science center when I have time...& I pitch in with a local environmental group occasionally. Once a year, I volunteer at a writers' conference for a week.

When I'm not working or in class, I spend my summers doing research in the forests & grasslands in the B.C. Interior.

Est-ce que vous être impatient? Je. ne. comprende. pas. Français.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"Good" is relative...I'm better at some things than other things, I'm better at those things than other people are & other people are better at them than I am.

Some say I'm good at being stubborn & difficult. Others say over-analyzing everything. I suppose I'd say thinking about things from different perspectives, being curious & self-aware. I'm pretty passionate about gaining new knowledge & anything that piques my curiosity or leaves me feeling inspired I tend to do relatively well with.

Est-ce que vous courir à sa perte? JE NE PAS COMPRENDE FRANCAIS!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This question is too awkward, how am I supposed to know what other people think or notice?

If I weren't me, I would probably notice my eyes first. I've been told they can be intense & they do change colour with my moods & surroundings.

If I'm happy it may be my smile. If I was someone tall, I'd notice how (incredibly) short I am...If I'm bending over then no one would see my eyes first.

See my problem with this question? Each person will see some different feature first...& it depends on the situation, & their perspective.

Okay, putting my animosity towards the wording of these questions aside, at work I've been accused of being a "people-person"...if I wasn't at work I would've (metaphorically) slapped them...most other times people mistake me for being angry because if I've found something that has caught my interest or piqued my curiosity (which happens a lot) I focus intently on it...apparently my intent, focused face looks like an angry she-bear when someone gets too close to her cubs...

...Someone told me I'm a Biologist with a Geographer's mind & I found it exceptionally fitting...

Oh, my favourite compliment that I've received: "Your smile is an energy source," though this probably shouldn't go under "the first thing people notice" as it has been pointed out to me that I don't smile so frequently.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Much of this section really should just be skimmed over...as it's probably the least important, though I see its usefulness, however limited in its depths (Omg! You like CSI/The Princess Bride/Bacon too? It must be true love!). The reasons behind someone's favourite things are more important.

(A) I have too many favourite books to name them all here. But when it comes to fiction some authors I love that come to mind would be Michael Slade, Thomas Harris, Kim Stanley Robinson, John Case, Dan Brown, Nevada Barr, Michael Connelly & Kurt Vonnegut. I enjoy any book that makes me question life or opens my eyes to different perspectives.

One amazing book that I've read recently is Natural Flights of the Human Mind by Clare Morall. It's one of those good books that you don't realize is a good book until you're too far into the story to stop, so you read it all in one sitting. Another book I enjoyed immensely was Land of the Living by Nicci French. The Silver Key by H.P. Lovecraft is one of my most recent favourite pieces of fictional work. One of my favourite short stories is Lukundoo by Edward Lucas White.

Right now I'm in the middle of reading The Walker Papers series by C.E. Murphy (again), Seeing the Forest Among the Trees by Herb Hammond, The Portable Nietzsche, Basic Writings of Heidegger, & Being & Nothingness by Sartre (the latter three of these I doubt I'll fully finish anytime soon [or at all], but I'm enjoying them). I also currently have bookmarked Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis, a bunch of Vonnegut & The Varieties of Scientific Experience by Carl Sagan. I semi-recently finished The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Celestine Prophesy, The Rule of Four & The Forest Lover & enjoyed them immensely. I've also recently read a few books about local plants & herbs & a bunch of ecology/environmental books.

...This list will constantly be needing revision.

(B)I can't stand most chick flicks or horror movies where the only purpose of the movie is to inflict terror. Though a decent horror movie that has a smooth story line, believable characters & still manages to give you nightmares is great. I will also watch practically any movie once if someone else is watching it & I happen to be spending time with them.

I generally (there are a few exceptions) don't enjoy movies based on books. I'm the type of person who will try to read the book before watching the movie (if I'm aware that the movie was based on a book), knowing full well it will probably ruin the movie for me. I would rather have a movie (that will probably be terrible anyway) ruined instead of a book ruined by a movie. I won't get into the details, but if you're a book-before-movie person, you know what I'm getting at.

I enjoy movies that have you guessing the whole way through & you can't figure out what's going on until the last few minutes (or you have to watch over & over again before you get it all)...& I'm disappointed that there are so few of them.

*Memento*, Office Space, Zodiac, Fracture, *Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind*, *Stranger Than Fiction*, Wall-E, October Sky, Waking Life, The Prestige, *Howl's Moving Castle*, Princess Mononoke, Ponyo on a Cliff, *Avatar*, The Lakehouse, Gattaca, *Sherlock Holmes*, Inception, Once, & Thunderheart are a few of my favourites.

The most amazing movies I've watched somewhat recently are *Stay*, Agora, The Fountain, *August Rush*, & *What Dreams May Come*, The Age of Innocence.

The most intriguing film I've watched is both a short film & a dance film, *Asylum of Spoons*. It was grand.

I was also happily surprised by Les Miserables; I was not expecting much of it, but I actually really enjoyed it.

(C)Music is something I don't think I could feel alive without. I enjoy most music besides rap & twangy country & I don't generally listen to jazz or blues, but under the right circumstances I enjoy them (say if I'm at a bistro or something that has live music, I don't mind, & often enjoy most of it).

I hate being one of those people who say "I like everything but rap & country" because I do enjoy listening to some songs from those genre, but GENERALLY I just don't listen to them as I find them lacking of originality & creativity...though if you mix the two together you'd get an amusing combination of "My dog got run over by your ride, after you did my wife over and over again in my brass bed, so tonight I wanna cry & I hope you die a slow & painful death while it's raining on Sunday."

A few artists I appreciate (in no particular order) are: *The Goo Goo Dolls*, *Lifehouse*, Red, 3 Doors Down, Default, Matchbox 20, Rascal Flatts, Evanescence, *Sarah McLachlan*, Yellowcard, 12 Stones, Incubus, Framing Hanley, December's End, *Breaking Benjamin*, Boys Like Girls, Neve, The Calling, The Fray, Death Cab For Cutie, Poets of the Fall, One Republic, Savage Garden, Josh Groban, *State of Shock*, Joshua Radin, Train, Creed, Enya, Enigma, Switchfoot, Dashboard Confessional, Faber Drive, Emerson Hart, Buckcherry, Staind, Our Lady Peace, John Butler Trio, Wintersleep, Bon Iver, Rise Against, Graham Colton Band, Art of Dying, Sigur Ros, Matt Nathanson, Matt Wertz, Matt Pond PA, Mae, Shinedown, Secondhand Serenade, Andy McKee, Better Than Ezra, Trading Yesterday, Within Temptation, Halestorm, Eluveitie, Nightwish, *Imogen Heap*, *Loreena McKennitt*, Flyleaf, Eagle & Hawk, Medicine Dreams, By a Thread, Xavier Rudd, Sleeping at Last, My Latest Novel...OK I give up, there are too many to name.

I've had to limit this list, because I realized that while I may have a favourite song from an artist, I definitely couldn't consider the artist a favourite.

One of my more recent (weird) loves when it comes to music is Margot & the Nuclear So & So's, but my two most recent loves are both local-ish, Sound Refuge (Markus Michelucci) and Nick Sherman. The most brilliant thing I have heard in forever? Shane Koyczan and the Short Story Long.

(F) The only thing I can think of is Sushi, but maybe Thai or Indian food for a treat. Though, I prefer fresh fruit (especially green grapes, tangerines & berries) & veggies to any sort of processed version & I'll take a wrap over a sandwich any day. I don't eat much meat at all when I'm in the city, but when I go back home I eat wild meat, mostly fish. The term I'd call my diet is "flexitarian." Oh, but if Coffee is considered a food, then that would be my absolute favourite.

I also get cravings for certain foods, mostly spicy food, bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon, Salt Water Taffy, Cranberry Almond Nougat or weird combinations of ordinary food.

One thing I'll never eat again, though I've tried, is uni (sea urchin).

(S) Favourite Scents: freshly squeezed lime, freshly baked bread, cilantro, mint, lavender, sagebrush, Petrichor, rain, forests, ocean...I almost want to say my favourite sense is the ability to smell...but any sort of intense stimulation of any one of the senses is amazing. If I had to give up one of the five senses, I think it would be sight.

(Q) My favourite quotes:

"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."

~Joseph Campbell

"We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves."

~François Duc de La Rochefoucauld


"I know you believe you understand what you think I said. But I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant."

~ Alan Greenspan

"...And what you do not know, you will fear. What one fears, one destroys."

"The time will soon be here when my grandchild will long for the cry of a loon, the flash of a salmon, the whisper of spruce needles, or the screech of an eagle. But he will not make friends with any of these creatures and when his heart aches with longing he will curse me. Have I done all to keep the air fresh? Have I cared enough about the water? Have I left the eagle to soar in freedom?"

~Chief Dan George

(X) Favourite T.V. Shows: I used to watch X-Files, Psyfactor, Mysterious Ways, God, the Devil & Bob, Dead Like Me, Whose Line is it Anyway?, Holmes on Homes, Supernatural & House. I was watching Criminal Minds and Dr. Who for awhile, but not so much any more.

I rarely watch T.V. at all now, (I don't ever watch cable, I only have some seasons of shows on DVD) but if I do it's usually Haven or Republic of Doyle. Oh, & apparently I like Joss Whedon's work (Dollhouse & Firefly).

(Z) Favourite Word: Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia (I love irony) tied with Syzygy or Petrichor...defenestrate & snarky are pretty close as well...no, I think the winner would be Petrichor.

*pousser un soupir* Qu'est-ce que vous as? Je parle Anglais, seu
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why six? I think maybe nine would be more significant: isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, histidine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, & valine...

...water, oxygen, food & the like, which are the only true things I could never survive for long without (if you want to get technical then just energy & matter).

Freedom.

All jokes aside, here are the types of energy & matter that matter to me; that I don't feel like myself without:

{} An open book (I need to keep my mind occupied because I'm addicted to learning)

{}Coffee (which I won't admit I'm addicted to)

{} An open mind (in this case, that encompasses logic, intuition emotion, creativity & imagination) & some way to express it all (ie. creative outlets, mind puzzles, etc.).

{} Other (non-human) beings (plants & animals)

{} Music

{} Rain (& most especially thunderstorms)

OK I'm going to break the rules here (OKCupid censors close your eyes)...

I can't get enough of HUGS & cuddling. I probably could live without them, but I know I wouldn't enjoy it.

Another list that I quite like, that deals more with energy (or non-material "things") rather than matter ("things"):

{}Empathy

{}Philosophy (most kinds of -ologies too, but most especially Ecology as well as Ethnobotany)

{}Beauty

{}Euphony

{}Aromatherapy

{}Creativity

Le dictionnaire Anglais-Français. :P
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...Everything & Nothing & Being & Time. At the same time. All the time.

This question is even worse than the "self-summary" box. How am I supposed to fit all of my thoughts, ideas & memories into a box?

Well, one random thing I keep working over in my brain is "Justified true belief" as a definition of knowledge.

I wouldn't say I spend a lot of time thinking about this one, but sporadically I think of how awesome it would be if the Religion options on here were changed to previous options like: "No," "Sometimes," "Rarely," "Desperately," "Never," "Only When Drinking," or "Trying to Quit."

I think about many things from as many different perspectives as possible to come up with an answer that will satisfy my curiosity at the time.

Right now I'm trying to define what I believe in one term. Am I agnostic? Atheist? An Agnostic Theist? Definitions that are closer would be Irreligious (associating organized religion with negative qualities, but still hold spiritual beliefs) or Ignostic ("God exists" is inconclusive until further evidence is met & the term "God" has a definite meaning). Another one that is pretty close is Metaphysical Naturalism ("nature is all there is & all basic truths are truths of nature."). Maybe an Irreligious Ignostic Metaphysical Naturalist...

I've been casually studying existentialism, so I'm thinking about life a lot, more specifically human existence. I ran to science when religion failed me, saying my curiosity would lead me to the devil, & it served me well enough to bring me to college, but I found the possibility of the missing pieces in Philosophy.

I'm open-minded when it comes to spirituality & religion, but I also think that organized religion has a tendency to relieve people of the burden of thinking for themselves. It frustrates me like nothing else when people use their religion (or any world-view) as an excuse to not take responsibility for their own actions. Even worse are those who believe in their religion (or world-view) only when it's convenient for them. Here are my thoughts on people like that:

"God told me I needed to kill someone, so I had to do it."
ME: "But God also told you to jump off a bridge, why didn't you feel you had to do that?"
"Because if I did that, then I couldn't kill that person"
ME: "So in that case, maybe God was actually telling you that you had the choice to NOT kill that person"
"But...then I'd be dead"
ME: "Well...that's a really good option as well."

...People in general wear down my soul, but I know there are individual persons out there that would fascinate me, rekindle my spirit & my opinion of humanity, so I hold on to the possibility that we'll cross paths one day. I wouldn't go as far as hope...Hope is a fickle & cruel...mistress.

I often wonder why & how is it that we think (& if other beings think to such an extent that we do, as well). I also ponder about the processes behind thought & the idiosyncrasies of the English language. I also occasionally wonder if I would not be so contradicting to myself if my native tongue was a different language than English, as I'd have more/different words to describe my thoughts & feelings. Unfortunately I'm a bumbling idiot when it comes to learning other languages, so I can't test that hypothesis...This is one main reason why I draw, as words alone often can't sum up how I feel or what I wish to express.

Like I said, my curiosity gets the better of me, so I spend a lot of time thinking about a lot of things. I lose track of time (& depth perception) when I'm lost in thought...or when I've lost my glasses, wondering where I put them. I walk around bumping into walls & tripping over penguins like a bumbling idiot, until I finally find them exactly where I knew I put them but I just couldn't see that they were there.

Sometimes I have so many unrelated thoughts (usually half-formed) racing through my head that they crash into each other (it's a great visual which always amuses me; high-speed train-of-thought crashes in my mind) & I can rarely make sense of any of them. My thoughts often contradict each other as well, but I usually can come up with convincing justifications for their conflicting natures...or at least I like to tell myself that.

I think a lot about goals & my future. Yes, I'm sure many do, but I should admit that sometimes my obsession with plans & plan b's get out of hand. I've been trying to figure out how to reach my goal of being self-sufficient, living off the land as much as possible (ie wild harvested food, earth homes, renewable energy) but still keeping the basics like deodorant & hot showers. My dream of being able to live off the land like my ancestors was sort of shot down when I first realized the state of the ecosphere & what we're (humanity) doing to it...which is why I'm pursuing the life I am now. I mentioned I was stubborn right?

On a related thought, the destruction of our ecosphere (ie the part of the planet that hosts all life) through mass over-consumption, greed & carelessness bothers me more deeply than anything else.

Lately I've been getting distracted easily and my memory... O0o is that a penny? Hmm, I think I want sushi...Oh, hey it's raining!...What was I saying?

This brain tangent is not so cleverly disguised as a user profile.

Rien d'autre que tout.

Comment faire le nécessaire. Ce qui est juste. Ce qui est possible, ce qui pourrait être et quelle est la différence? Qu'est-ce qui nous attend?

Réfléchir profondément, tel que: Quels sont les faits reprochés? Manchot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading a book, sketching, writing poems, watching the rain fall, watching a movie, listening to music, rallying, gardening or going for a long walk (possibly in the rain, or with my camera in hand) with no goal/destination in mind. Occasionally I'll have a 3 a.m. coffee with a friend. Sometimes I'll be playing video games, though not so much anymore.

Well, that's what a Friday night generally used to look like, but usually I'm standing in solidarity with an environmental or Indigenous group...so that applies to any night I'm not working, volunteering, rallying, doing school work or research.

Which brings up another thing I was trying to avoid mentioning because it just gets sticky, but I've realized is too important to me to not bring up. If you are against people fighting for decolonization, or you harbour discriminatory thoughts against First Nations/Aboriginal/Native American/Indigenous peoples, move along to a different profile, swiftly. We will not get along. Ever. Go now.

Update: I just moved to the island, so there is no typical Friday, or any other day unless you count unpacking and working on not getting lost.

Back to the question at hand.

What's so special about Friday nights anyways? The stars shine on all the other nights too!

If you're wondering if I enjoy partying (as Friday is a typical night to party) then no, I dislike parties, clubs & bars. If you're wondering what I do on the first night of my day(s) off, then it's usually doing things that I didn't have a chance to accomplish on the days I had work/class/research/volunteering.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
As this is a public profile, once I admit it here it will no longer be private, will it? If you want to know something just ask me and I may or may not answer it.

OK, OK...I despise this formation of words strung together in a fashion that's supposed to be of some resemblance of my self for others to peruse and try to decide if they would want to interact with me. I'm terrible at keeping in touch, no matter how interesting the person or conversation and I'm mostly here to pass time by doing meaningless tests. There is no point in reading this profile to get to know me, as the me I pretend to know and show you will be different from the person you believe you may know.

...If this is a trap to try and get me to admit that I have some hot fantasy that maybe someone else in the world shares, so if they read this then they'll have a sudden urge to message me so we can have some hot cybersex, then it's not going to work. I'm not here to find a "date"/someone to have sex with.

...

OK, OK, OK! I know this is supposed to be juicy and all, so I'll write something of that sort to amuse a random stranger:

I joined an online-dating site. There, happy?

No...I didn't think so. Alright...I stalk people's profiles who have a high match % with me so I can see what tests they've taken to discover interesting new tests to do. I then rate them almost solely by their personality, mostly so I can easily find their profile again if I need more tests to do.

Alright...I think things like Tardigrades, Glycosides, Biogeoclimatic Zones, & the Golden Ratio (list to be expanded soon) are incredibly sexy.

Clowns...they're inherently creepy. Come on, now! Whoever thought it was a good idea to let their child take candy & balloons from an old man, wearing a disguise & hiding his face with a permanent smile?

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
So this is where I'm supposed to list every premise that defines when you should message me? There's a countless number of possibilities that could give you reason to message me. For instance:

The mood strikes you...

The mood struck you so hard you're looking for some sympathy... No, I won't kiss it better...

You have nothing better to do so you figure that you might as well do it, even if you have nothing to say or what you think you may say will hardly make any sense at all...

You're bored (or you feel like it)...

You're curious about anything & you want to share that curiosity with me...

You're a book-before-movie person...

You're an ellipses person...

You're a tree-hugging dirt worshipper...

You think fighting for what is right is important...

You're for decolonization...

You want to know what decolonization is...

You feel like discussing or debating anything at all...

You want to verbally maul me for my opinions on controversial topics...

You have a new perspective to share with me...

You want to harass me for having such a long profile...

I missed a 'u' in favourite, colour or any other word that should have a 'u' in it (Regardless of what the generic American dictionary states!) & you would like to point it out...

You're wondering what hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia means (& don't be scared that I've used words like abstruse & hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia; I'm not a sesquipedalian, there are just some large, obscure words that I love & sometimes I wish the English language was still colourful & exciting in every-day conversation)...

If the idea of spending your entire life on the capitalistic treadmill in a crowded, polluted city gives you nightmares. Or conversely, the idea of small self-sufficient, sustainable communities, that fit in with the local environment (or similar notion) makes you happy inside...

You agree that Petrichor is not only the best thing ever, it is the best word ever...

You want to know what Petrichor is...

You can convince me there is something better in this world than Petrichor...

You think OKC should revise these profile questions too (especially this one)...

Really, almost anything goes. You may message me & I might feel like responding, but I may not. If the question was worded "I'd like you to message me if" then this would've been much easier...or even better "Don't message me if..."

On that note, don't message me if you're going to proselytize (even atheists can be preachy). I'm very open-minded but I can't stand people preaching their world-views, be it religious, political or other belief. Don't force your beliefs on me & I won't force mine on you, though I'm interested in discussing & comparing different beliefs...

If you fit into any one of those categories (or any other for that matter), you've made it this far & you haven't been frightened away yet, then maybe you should consider messaging me...

Or I should consider giving you a medal...
