Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Someone recently asked me if I used to be a dancer because I'm just
extremely energetic in everything I do.
And yet I'm ridiculously quiet.
Is that weird?
Yeah, I didn't think so, either. Being surrounded by people who are
always trying to talk to you about sports and cars when you just
wanna read a book or hang out in a park or the wilderness is
impressively exhausting. But I love moving. I love doing. Sitting
still is boring.
So here I am, trying to find people who are more like me. Who are
pure introverts and like being social in small bursts, but enjoy
some personal time to unwind, recharge, cool down. Who like having
meaningful conversations about important things or nothing at all,
or even wild mass guessing about their favorite fandoms. Who
understand my chronic need to fix all of the things.
I live life in the bike lane... well, the interspersed scraps
Baltimore has of 'em, anyway. Oh, I can drive, but I don't need to.
I do enough at work.
If you have a cat, you are automatically awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Fixing it, living it, taking it in stride.
Working my ass off, trying to find a better job and/or ways to pay
for the completion of my degree. Had to leave college as a senior,
which sucks like you wouldn't believe. But we'll get back in, and
finish my bachelor's as soon as possible.
Meanwhile, I write stories, ride my bike all around the city, ride
my bike to other cities, try to learn how to cook and be handier,
work on my art skills, and play a video game like once every two
Not re-entering school this semester. Trying again later.
...Interesting how much this section is becoming like a journal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-forgetting negative signs
-navigation (the human GPS, they call me)
-striking up random conversations with strangers
-planning, because I plan to be a planner

Or they notice that I'm quiet. Or that I look young. Or my bicycle

I have no idea how to do this; I'm just gonna dump stuff I've been
following lately here
Just finished The Martian, totally want to read more like
it. Science fiction, nonfiction, and autobiographies tend to be
right up my alley.

I suck at movies
I've most likely never seen your favorite movie

Avatar: The Last Airbender/The Legend of Korra, Cosmos: A Spacetime
Odyssey... I don't watch that much TV lately.
the skillful soundwaves
Metal. Yup. Some rock, electronica, exploring hip-hop/rap lately,
and various other odds and ends (like stuff from TV shows and video
games... oh, you know you have some too).
the interactive media
Life Is Strange. Also: Final Fantasy, the Portal duology, Chrono
Trigger, Golden Sun... Mostly a PC gamer right now, because Steam

I know I love Chinese, Thai, and Italian food. And now that I know
that, I should try some vegan food. Or African foods.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
How do you... oh, screw it.
1. My legs
2. Freedom of movement / travel
4. The ability to create things
6. Adenosine triphosphate
7. Red blood cells
8. g = 9.8 m/(s^2)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
..."the future", the most original answer for this question
...story plot lines and plot holes
...what things are in the universe that we just haven't discovered
yet, and how much discovering those things will completely change
everything about everything
...how to do things that aren't getting done by the people who are
supposed to be doing them

they stay on my mind... and yes, I may or may not be a bit

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Does anyone ever have a typical Friday night? I know I ain't the
only one who's off doing a bunch of random things.
Maybe I'm out doing a meetup. Or hanging out with friends (or
making new ones). Maybe exploring new places in the city? Or
sitting at home doing all those things that us nerds be
doing--taking wiki walks (or xkcd-walks... something), writing,
laughing at cat videos... Or I just go to sleep, to counteract the
joy of waking up obnoxiously early, as I do. Or it's the last
Friday of the month, and since this is Baltimore and I have a Bike,
there might be a Party of some sort piquing my interest.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

Shh, it's a secret.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm very much attracted to intellectuals... and those who are quiet
and fellow introverts. A fellow bicyclist is a nice bonus, or at
least loves being outside! I would love to find a woman who is
active and willing to get her hands dirty instead of just be a
pretty face. And someone who is responsible is a must.
Liberals, please! An atheist or agnostic is perfect! Pagans and
wiccans also very much welcome. Queer- and bi-friendly,
poly-friendly, various other friendlies, may or may not be
Friendly's-friendly, "friendly" doesn't look like a word
Anyone who has a bias against any group (especially racially or
LGBT) is not going to be a very good friend. And... if you're
anti-science, then we are two fundamentally different people and
you would be better off not messaging me... and turning off your
computer and selling it, because HELLO
In any case, far be it for me to stop you from messaging me for any
reason. Or no reason! Keeps things interestin'.
