Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
hey, i'm emily. i like crosswords, cloudscapes, root vegetables,
sharp knives, alpacas (and llamas), knob creek, playing in the mud,
being barefoot, spooning, cat whispering...
i'm (not so) recently single, taking some time to explore myself
and the people around me. i want to follow the butterflies..
i'm interested in the connections we make with people. on whatever
level, with whomever it is in our lives. i like making eye contact
with people and i will smile at anyone, which gets me in to some
trouble sometimes (but it's overall worth it) i'm great at flirting
with people, but terrible at flirting with women. i'm always on the
search for co-conspirators. let's run amok, at least in spirit.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
slinging espresso in an independently-owned coffee shop, bending
wire and throwing pots, trying to get serious about selling my art,
constructing varying degrees of cat furniture, hiking, biking,
kayaking, snowboarding, skydiving, zip-lining, generally brooding
and playing in equal measure
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
mental math, waking up just in the nick of time, cat massages
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
freckles, smile, and i get lots of compliments on my rad gauges
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
books: salinger, brautigan, vonnegut, kingsolver, tom robbins
(though i feel like i'm growing out of him), all of tolkien,
michael crichton is a guilty pleasure. ugh, what a sausage
movies: most of wes anderson's movies (especially rushmore, not
darjeeling limited, or the new one), milo and otis, fried green
tomatoes (also love the book), contact
shows: breaking bad, arrested development, jeopardy!, golden
music: bluegrass, indie, cello-heavy (or double bass), other stuff
food: fresh market veggies! greens with bacon, garlicky mushrooms,
green beans, copious amounts of freshly ground black pepper over
everything. also goldfish crackers, ipa's, and ginger beer
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my sandals; a cat, most any cat will do; a pair of pliers and at
least a foot of wire; dreams, i live for my flying dreams; garlic;
climbing chalk, i need lots of it
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
fractals, the nature of god and the universe, the secret lives of
inanimate objects, climbing routes, my next art project, trying to
remember all the details of my epic dreamscapes
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
contra dancing! i may make an exception for a compelling date..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i still have a flip phone, also, i sleep with a beatrix potter
