I will wow your friends, impress your parents, and swoon your
You're talented, driven, and tired of frat boys with topless
Neither of us are: "laid back, I watch Netflix, I love outdoors but
also staying in, I have no typical Friday night I do whatever but
also I hang with my friends. Lol." type people.
We will skip the small talk. We will paint the town red (and
black). We will be memorable.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Learning the secrets of the universe.
Installing linux on your toaster.
Wearing a lab coat at work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Kissing. Talking about whatever. Giving you my undivided attention.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My "dressed like I just don't care" is your "Hey, did you just come
from a wedding? You look so fly."
One exception -- plain black T-shirts are my crack.
And by crack I mean facebook. And by facebook I mean that I keep
wearing them without even remembering typing anything in the URL
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
My favorite movies are books.
My favorite books are instapaper.
I listen to hipster music circa 2010. AKA indie music, soul train,

Milkshakes, Wine, or GTFO.
If you love Tamora Pierce or Terry Pratchett hit me up right now.

will get along.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Meaningful relationships with the people around me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be a good ally/feminist. How to be recklessly compassionate
and vulnerable and sensitive. But without making people too
uncomfortable. Or maybe I shouldn't worry so much about what other
We're all going to die, sooner or later. Philosophy is the practice
of getting ready for death. Which is cool and all but I hope when
the time comes I can just upload my brain into a GNU/Linux
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sample of 4 consecutive Fridays:
Friday 1. Using my skills to help Wikipedia gets donations.
Friday 2. After a board meeting in NYC, swagging up a socialist
magazine launch party.
Friday 3. Dance. Machine. (Conference in DC)
Friday 4. Move to Oakland. Take care of my friends' geckoes.
(This is the part where you ask me out to dinner)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I ran away from school once.
Forgive me! I was young, and reckless.
Here's the story
It was 2nd grade. I won a meaningless competition; won the right to
lead the milk line into the cafeteria. Little did I suspect that
line of children would become a line of betrayal.
Noon. We form up. I move to the front. Teacher ushers me aside.
Lisa will head the line today.
Anger. I storm out of the room, and out of the building. It took a
couple of hours for the police to find me.
Don't worry, I had the last laugh. My parents were furious that it
took so long to realize I had left. They transfered the whole
family out of the school.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Message me if "meeting up for coffee" sounds a little too obvious
for a first date.
Don't know what to say? Here are some ideas:
1. What have you been thinking about lately?
2. Complete this sentence: "How about we _____"
3. Tell me I'm beautiful.
If all else fails just insert the word "avocado" somewhere and
everything will work out.
