Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
A recent graduate completing a B.A. in International Studies
(Interdisciplinary major) with a developing interest in anything
that requires creativity, problem solving and from a broad
perspective, is ultimately a marriage requiring both
intellectual/technical mindset with physical abilities whether it
be endurance or strength.
Developing an interest in abstract architecture that challenges the
very notion of what constitutes a home. I like to think about, "Why

mechanical workshop. A sanctuary that I can have the tools and

as I live.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to interact with someone outside your immediate homogenous
circle of "friends" and are seeking to date someone who is ususual
(whether that is a positive or negative trait is subjective) in

friends" (as a disclaimer).

general (In plain English, "Don't Judge a Book Entirely on Its
