My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, people. So I've just recently moved home after 6 years in Missouri for college and post-college, and I don't know ANYONE -- all my friends seem to have moved away. :PP So I'm primarily looking for cool people to hang out with. (Side note: I probably don't live in whatever location my profile lists right now. I actually live in Florida, but sometimes I change my location because I like talking to interesting people. And there are NO INTERESTING PEOPLE ANYWHERE IN FLORIDA.)

HOWEVER, supposing I were to find someone who caught my interest for dating, here's some further information...

Establishing a solid, legitimate friendship with the possibility of potentially upgrading to romantic relationship later.
Guys who like the same books I like.
Guys who are kind.
Guys who love their mothers.
Guys who have lots of female friends.
Guys who have actual skills, hobbies, and talents that would be useful/marketable in the event of the apocalypse (zombie or otherwise) (such skills might include: making ANY physical object (ie: woodworking, metalwork, any fiber art), music, drawing, building things, cooking.)
Guys who like learning to do things they don't know how to do.
Guys who are passionate and enthusiastic about things.
Guys with a greater emotional capacity than that of a brick.
Guys who can dance (proper dancing, not this newfangled tomfoolery all the kids are doing these days).
Guys who LIKE WOMEN (this does NOT, I repeat, NOT refer to sexuality in any way. You can be a heterosexual male and still not really like women.)
Guys who get dressed up to go on dates.
Guys who aren't so insecure in their sexuality that they can do things like admit that another guy is objectively attractive.
Guys who don't think that periods or menstrual accoutrements (ie: tampons, pads) are gross.
Guys who really don't think it's a big deal to go out and buy said menstrual accoutrements (it's the same as buying toilet paper, everyone knows where you're gonna put that.)
Talkative guys.
Guys who hold doors open without bitching about "chivalry" later.
Guys who are interested in academic subjects like history and science.
Guys who have a damn job.
Guys who have a damn job that they're excited and passionate about.
Independent guys.
Guys who like videos of kittens.
Funny guys.

One night stands.
Sexist douchebags.
Guys who make the duck face in photographs.
Disrespectful guys.
Guys who don't pay attention and listen when I'm speaking.
Guys who can't follow directions.
Pushy guys.
Guys who think "Go make me a sandwich" is funny.
Guys who do drugs, drink heavily, or smoke.
Strangers who call me sweetheart.
(I maintain the right to add to this list as necessary.)


I do not find ignorance attractive. I'm also a former English major and a 5-time NaNoWriMo winner, and my Big Dream is to be able to support myself writing novels. I am a feminist -- if you recoil at this, then 1) you don't understand what feminism is about, and 2) you're wasting your time here. We will not get along. Move on.

I published my first novel about two years ago. Y'know, like you do.

I would recommend looking at my "You should message me if" section. I would HIGHLY recommend this.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm going to be rich and famous! I'm going to change the literary landscape!

Sewing, writing, doing an Epic Reading Project (all the winners from six influential science fiction/fantasy awards: Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, Clarke, Tiptree, Mythopoeic Fantasy.... plus a few dozen other recs -- the total comes to about 315 books, and I expect to have it done within two years.)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Writing (novels in 30 days), proofreading, tutoring, cooking, swearing like a mofo, being interesting, taking over the world, snark, a host of useful hands-on skills. I'm good at Things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can sit on my hair.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Bridge of Birds, the Vorkosigan series, The Engineer Trilogy, The Kingkiller Chronicles, The Gentleman Bastard Sequence. Stormlight Archives. Fragile Things, American Gods, the Temeraire Series, Discworld, The Dark Lord of Derkholm, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Mistborn, etc etc. Fantasy and science fiction.

Movies: Mirrormask, V for Vendetta, Stranger Than Fiction, Hairspray, The Producers, Pan's Labyrinth, Moulin Rouge, Serenity, Stardust, The King's Speech, Going Postal, The Fall...

TV Shows: Galavant, Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell, Agent Carter, Bob's Burgers, Firefly, Dr. Horrible, QI (Stephen Fry!!!), Doctor Who, Franklin and Bash, 30 Rock, Psych, Sherlock, and shamelessly, The Millionaire Matchmaker, mostly because of the crazy clients.

Music: Catchy stuff I can sing to is my favorites, but I like a bunch of stuff. In no particular order: Fun., The Decemberists, Vitas, KT Tunstall, Dar Williams, Regina Spektor, Super Junior, Shakira, ABBA, Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Irish folk music, Queen, Mozart, sea shanties, Sting, Flogging Molly, Nana Mouskouri, The Beatles, Dropkick Murphy, musicals (ie, Les Miserables, Moulin Rouge, Chicago, Phantom of the Opera, Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Book of Mormon), oldies and classic rock.

Food: Anything, except... well, I don't eat anything that fornicates in water. Or insects. Or chihuahuas. Or cats. And I'm not too fond of rabbit or duck. Or game. It tastes nasty. I hate venison. Hate it. Also, mutton. Lamb is okay, but mutton is horrible.
That sounds kind of prohibitive, doesn't it?? If it fits within these guidelines, though, I'm totally happy to try it. I LOVE Indian and Thai and Ethiopian food (chicken tikka masala, lamb korma, gulab jamun, naan, beef pho...mmmmm). And...y'know, everything delicious. Yorkshire pudding. Shepherd's pie. Tiramisu. Creme brulee. Most pies. Cake.

Video Games: I really like games that are more about the story than they are about...y'know, skill. I LOVE Legend of Zelda (Ocarina of Time is probably my all time favorite; Majora's Mask was fun, but frustrating, and I've never finished any of the others--alas!--so I can't make a good judgement call on them. Twilight Princess was pretty awesome, but I was playing it on the Wii and I don't think it worked at all well. How am I supposed to freak out and flail at things when I'm startled if that MAKES STUFF MOVE?)... Katamari Damacy. <3
Of course, who isn't fond of Mario Kart? And I do admit that back in the day, I was a shark when it came to Pokemon Snap and Pokemon Stadium. =[ Seriously.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Shit, I dunno. I think it's kind of stupid to have things that you couldn't do without. It's a very American concept, isn't it? I mean, at the end of the day, I could do without the internet. It would be painful and dull as I got through the withdrawal symptoms, but it would be possible. It's not like my life depends on having internet. I am fond of most of the amenities of modern life, such as hygiene and medicine and air conditioning.

This is a silly question.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stuff. This video:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Online. My Friday nights are sacrosanct. Completely off-limits.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My mind goes blank at this question.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I know it's hard to message someone. I've been there. I feel you. Just ask me about books or something. I love talking about books.

Just... Dear god, please don't try to get a response with empty flattery. I am not looking for compliments on my appearance. I don't care if you think I'm pretty/beautiful/adorable/cute/whatever. These words have NO VALUE TO ME when they come from strangers on the internet, so please don't say them. If you don't understand why, read these articles:
I really hate it when people do this -- there are so many things about me that are more interesting than what I look like, and I've mentioned a lot of them on my profile. Do nottttttttttttt comment on my pics. Please? PLEASE? I'm a person just like you, bro.

Edit #2: Okay maybe some examples of what I DO NOT want to hear from you will be helpful.
"hey beautiful what's up" (unsolicited compliment; boring conversation starter.)
"you have a beautiful smile and caring eyes." (Weird and creepy; unsolicited compliment.)
"Very nice photos" (This isn't a conversation starter. Unsolicited compliment.)
"I was reading your profile and thought you seemed normal enough so what is really wrong with you? HAHA" (Wow, offensive.)
"I can't believe a great girl like you is still on OKC." (You don't know anything about me, douchebag.)
"good morning how is your morning so far" (Fine thanks.....Awkward silence.)
"hi" (Hi. Awkward silence. Just skip the small talk and say something interesting.)
