Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Jaimie (its strange, doesn't have that anywhere else, so
now you know!)
I'm a rather good natured person who is somewhat nerdy. (Okay,
maybe more than somewhat. It took playing DnD and carrying around a
set of die in my purse before I admitted I'm a nerd. :P)
I like anime and manga. I also love to read a lot, particularly
urban fantasy (although occasionally will branch out to normal
fantasy, sci fi, and very rarely something else.) I like to watch
TV series in marathon form (usually while playing a video game,
unless it is one've my super favorites where I need 100% attention
on it). These usually are sci-fi stuff, but much more open to other
genres than I am with my books.
Um, I have a cat and live with a roommate (a guy, Dennis), and work
as a mechanical engineer on engines for cranes.
I used to be incredibly shy, and finally growing out of it. In fact
the person you meet now, while at the core the same, is
unidentifiable from who I used to be. While I'm still shy meeting
people, I also tend to be very open and cheerful.
I'm also super honest, and will say things that ppl don't always
want to hear, because that's the truth.
Speaking of honesty. I've avoided dating because I'm not as
touchy-feely as other people nor do I have many of those desires.
We can talk more about this in private, but straight up I will tell
you that I have a complete phobia to kissing so that isn't
happening, and sex, while still a possibility, isn't going to be an
anytime soon activity. It's extremely mortifying and embarrassing
being an outlier in this respect and mentioning this publicly, but
feel it needs to be said. I hate the idea of people expecting
something they may never get with me if they need it.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Lazing about... hmmm doesn't sound appropriate, but yup...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I mean... what am I supposed to say? I'm good at... watching tv?
Being a goofball? Reading? I guess reading works, because I do read
quite a biiiiit...
So yeah! I can be good at random stuff I guess -- I'm not sportsy
nor do I have any special talents to put here, so hard to really
say what one is good at. :P
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well that all depends on the circumstances...
Online? I'm a goofball
In school? I'm a goofball
Interview? I'm um... easily smiling and good humored random person
who gets slightly off topic and a little over excited at some
On the street? Nothing
So yeah! I'm just somebody that likes to smile and laugh and oh,
REALLY likes cute things. But by cute things not kittens and stuff,
but rather strange big googley eyed things (like the cat bed on the
lamp in one've those photos).

Steak (pan fried with lotsa tasty salty seasoning)

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Ability to ignore one's body (if you ever get hypersensitive to
everything, you realize how amazing and needed it is when you're
"normal" and don't feel anything)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I tend to think a lot, although most the time its nerdy what nots
(like I spent the entire trip to and from Kings Dominion to Raleigh
(~3 hours each way) thinking about how one would create a purely
mechanical calculator... and how computers came about and stupid
mechanical crap like that, but also think about stories and what if
this character was there or they came here, or whatever)
Also think depressing things as well! Like I'm quite sure everyone
else does, and if you don't then lucky you! XD
But yeh, there's not one particular topic that I think about all
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home reading a book, watching an anime, watching a tv show or
playing video games. Sometimes I'm asleep too. All the
socialization at work drains me, so when end of week comes I crash
and sleep for a good amount of time. (That doesn't mean I don't
like socializing, its just very very very exhausting, especially
with more than one person XD)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Doctors have claimed that I might have Asperger's Syndrome... and
while I'll ignore that and claim otherwise, fact of the matter is I
do share a lot of traits for it. I also (supposedly) have ADD
(ok... anyone who knows me and my family will agree that we all
And I have an "Auditory Processing Disorder." Basically what that
amounts to is that I hear perfectly fine but oftentimes information
comes in but my brain doesn't always understand it all. So I tend
to say "huh?" "what?" "sorry, repeat that" a lot. This one I fully
admit I have, the other two are maybes (they can be confused with
each other, and I function perfectly well so whatever if I
I'm also on antidepressants... while I am extremely cheerful and
goofy and fun around others, alone I tend to fall to the other side
of the spectrum. I'm not giving them up though, because they are a
big reason I've broken out of my shell and able to speak to
(Example: At start of college I wasn't able to call a pizza man. I
couldn't ring a doorbell and would wait outside someones house for
up to an hour being unable to knock or ring bell. I couldn't go
through drive through... Now though I can do all that perfectly
fine, and even able to go to an interview w/o any stress over it.
Still have some shyness and dislike of phones though, so if I can
get away with using internet or email or talking in person rather
than phone, I will :P)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're interested in me for more than how I look :X
And you read the last paragraph on self summary. It's embarrassing
saying so, but not gonna lead anyone on, if I start dating it's
gonna go slow.
