Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Your basic INFP. Introspective and self-aware to the point of
excessive rumination that can lead to intense one-on-one
conversation. Looking for a date or a fling or a lifetime of
adopting dogs- like I said, your basic INFP. I have trouble making
decisions. I'm a successful young professional who still dreams of
someday writing a novel, becoming an astrophysicist, saving Detroit
from itself, teaching creative writing to teenagers, or something I
haven't thought of yet. Also really bad at elevator pitches.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Dreaming of the day when my student loans are paid off so that I
can feel more comfortable taking professional risks. In the
meantime, working an awful lot as a management consultant. Pretty
freaking good at it, too- but still getting comfortable with the
shmoozy bizniss stuff.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Returning calls from my mom 10 days later. Pondering the big
questions. Ignoring the little questions. Thinking about the end of
the world. Deciding to make brownies from scratch and then having
them in the oven in 5 minutes flat.
The first things people usually notice about me

My mysterious aura? I don't know. Let's go with arm hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love sci-fi. I won't apologize for it. Deal with it. Three books
you should read: Accelerando by Charles Stross. The Light of Other
Days by Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter, and Hyperion by Dan
Simmons. Oh, and for good measure throw in The Integral Trees by
Larry Niven. Movies- I like to watch em once. Shows- Rupaul's Drag
Race makes me happy. I'm currently somewhat obsessed with Dr. Who.
Music- Roisin Murphy and Kate Bush seem to have stuck in my
playlists for a few years. Food- I like to date guys who like
pickles, because otherwise they go to waste at restaurants because
I hate them.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My best friend Katie, who is like the reason I'm who I am. 2.
Cynicism (or you can call it healthy skepticism if that makes you
more comfortable). 3. Documentaries about the Universe. 4. Coffee.
5. Frequent solitude. 6. A backup plan.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Cosmology. Why I'm so awkward. Why I think so much about how
awkward I am. How to get away with yet more sleep. What the hell
Jean Grey ever could have seen in Cyclops. Compound interest.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out with friends singing karaoke (I LOVE IT and I'm only
mildly ashamed) or staying in with a friend debating which movie to
watch before settling on something that one of us certainly had no
interest in but ultimately end up enjoying.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have given up trying to quit diet cola.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're into it.
Oh yeah! One other thing you should know about me: I'm into casual
cuddling. That means that 1. I tend to get affectionate early but
2. it doesn't mean I want us to adopt a dog and wear matching
sweaters. Or whatever it is that the gays do these days.
