Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is my OkCupid profile. I hope you have as much fun reading it
as I had writing it.
Here are things I like: video games, horror movies, British
television, good books, hanging out with kids, museums of any kind,
old movies, volunteering, having too many pets, sarcasm, penguins,
cartoons, big cities, puppets and animatronics, video editing,
mostly pointless yet overly passionate conversations, and cuddling
Here are things I don't like: People who are mean for no reason,
stabbing myself in the eye with an eyeliner pencil, the movie
Moulin Rouge!, the word "guesstimate," spiders, that part in every
action game where your character gets captured and you lose all
your stuff for forty minutes and you worry that the game will
glitch and you'll never get it all back, earbud style headphones,
and sunsets after it rains and the sky's that really weird
pinkish-purplish color, that creeps me right the hell out.
I think that about covers everything.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I do a lot of volunteering with youth, so a lot of my time is spent
planning and executing programming and worrying about funding and
grants, but it's all worth it when I actually get to hang out with
the kids. Except when they're awful. And kids are always kind of
Also I have some meaningless job or another. Eventually I'll get
sick of mindless jobs and go back to school for cosmetology, like
I've always sworn I'd do but haven't followed through with because
most beauty school students are basically velociraptors with hair
extensions. Not nerdy awkward girls who think makeup is neat, like
In my spare time I attempt to do creative things, mostly with
writing or video making. You may have caught that interview I did
when I did the late night talk show circuit in my imagination.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing academic papers deconstructing novels. But I'm not in
college anymore so I should pick a skill that's still relevant to
my life...so, hmm, I guess mouth trumpet.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I tend to read the so-called "classics," some horror (gothic
ghost stories <3), and then random contemporary stuff if it
tickles my fancy.
TV: I watch a lot of things, but I'll especially watch anything
animated, from The Simpsons to Adventure Time. I love shows from
Britain (like everyone else who's cool), and I'm still a diehard
Buffy fan. I also like anime, but like I don't shout "kawaii" or
anything. Anymore. Much.
Movies: I lean toward horror mostly, but I also have a particular
love for older movies, like pre-80s. And I like so-bad-they're-good
movies. But I'm up for literally anything, and I have my guilty
pleasure favorite action movie, romcom, kids movie, etc. Movies are
just fun all around to me.
Video games: My favorites are horror games, old school style
adventure games, and weird indie snobby "art games." But I won't
turn down a Half-Life or a Metal Gear Solid, either! But I WILL
turn down a Halo or a Call Of Duty, and I will totally cop that
it's because I absolutely suck at playing them.
Food: Thai, Mexican, Chinese.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Diet Pepsi
It's a bit of a problem.
2. My iPhone. Obvs.
3. Cardigans, because they make it look like you're wearing a
coordinated, fashionable outfit that you actually put thought into
putting together when literally all you did was put on one extra
article of clothing.
4. Extension cords.
5. My carefully organized shelves of books, movies, and video
And obviously there's a lot of people who are incredibly important
to me, my friends, my Dad, my gramma, plus my dog and cat, but
that's boring to list those kinds of things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
