My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One afternoon, when I was eight years old, I sat underneath our dining room window reading a book I had checked out from the school library. It was Journey to the Year 3000, an especially grim edition of the Choose Your Own Adventure series. The basic premise of this book was fairly simple: I had been frozen in a space capsule for one thousand years and now, upon my awakening, I had a dystopian interplanetary empire to contend with.

With increasing intensity, I flipped through the beginning bits to get to the branching points in the story, choosing a new path each time, trying to exhaustively reach every possible conclusion. Here I was marooned on Mars, left to slowly suffocate as the oxygen on my suit gradually depleted. At another turn, I was poisoned to death by Styx Mor as he decided that I was a threat to his evil dominion of the Earth. Again and again I perished, and again I would start anew. I felt I had to see every path and, more importantly, I had to find a way to escape this seemingly inevitable demise.

Finally through the sheer elimination of fatal choices I arrived at one of the only survivable conclusions. I had reversed the tables on Styx Mor. He lay dieing at my feet, having been tricked into consuming his own poison. In the final paragraph as I gazed out of the window of his throne room up into the stars, my adventure over, I realized that I had nothing to return to. Everyone I had ever cared about been dead for hundreds of years.

Back under my dining room window I began to cry. No matter how I tried, I could not find the happy ending. A terrible sense of finality washed over me. As I looked up at my mother, who was sitting across the room, I saw that she was drifting slowly, but inevitably away from me, all the time.

It was at this exact moment that I understood that we will all one day die.

I am the child of the deepest love and the coldest maths...

I want to be everything! I am driven absolutely mad by the mutually exclusive!

You will find that I have a ridiculous amount of energy.

Yes I expect you to infer my personality through literary analysis!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The human condition is my passion. I am endlessly fascinated by the human mind, behavioral patterns, the development and structure of the personality!

I want to put what I have learned into practice. I am in the process of getting into a graduate program in order to become a therapist.

In the mean time I spend my free time nurturing my soul and honing my mind. I'm in that stage where you go out and do all things you always wanted to but were too afraid to attempt. I make a point to try to something new each week.

I'm also a caregiver for individuals with developmental issues or mental illness.
I’m really good at

Reading people
Video games
Hosting things
Dealing with a crisis
Conflict resolution
Convincing people
Interacting with animals
Being pragmatic

On television: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Adventure Time, Venture Brothers, Archer, Fooly Cooly

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are only three things I need:
The Internet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Self improvement.
Mary Sue style fan fiction
Dancing with the wolf at the door.
Sexy times
The unconscious

Most of all, I spend a ridiculous amount of time trying to understand perspectives alien from my own.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a bar with friends
Playing a game
Watching a Movie
talking with a friend

I am a trans-woman!---------------RAWR!

Fun fact: Dating as transgender really really fucking blows.

Imagine: Instead of the comparing of interests and personality with potential new partners, suddenly now everyone is exclusively interested in what may or may not be between your legs. Demands that you describe your genitalia become typical first date or even first conversation fare. And even the most well meaning and intelligent individuals will, without warning, make some ridiculously derogatory comment or request.

"Well hot dog!" (You must be saying) "Where do I sign up?"
- Well sorry folks, this is exclusive club that you can only be born into...

"But trans-lady person, what if I find you attractive and want to date you myself."

-Well that depends...are you educated about what it means to be transgender? I mean really educated through positive sources who are themselves transgender. Because folks I'm afraid to say that you've likely been pumped up full of nothing but bullshit on the topic, and unless you take it upon yourself to read some google or a book or something, you're likely just going to blow that bullshit all over me. And I'm not going to be very happy about that.

"But what about your genitalia! I really need to know cause my friends, family, or sense of masculinity is afraid of penises!" or "I really want to know about your genitalia cause I really want to suck or take a penis up the A within the confines of my heterosexual identity"

-Gross! Looks like you ignored my previous advice and are spraying that bullshit. If you care about whether or not I have a penis or vagina, then you are wasting my time and yours. Cause that stuff for a person like me doesn't work the way you saw in that porno that one time. You gotta take the time to learn about what my body means to me without expectations born out of fucked up entitlement, or you gotta go get yourself lost!

So yeah, this fucking blows. I really wish I could keep my profile lighthearted and centered around my actual personality. Please give me some indication that you have read and understand all this if you are messaging me for the first time, or you are going to be filtered out.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are positive, mature, and fun.

You wanna go on an adventure!

You've dealt with most your shit already!

You are intelligent! Intelligence is very sexy!

You want to play some convoluted dorky board game, go hiking or kayaking.

You want to play some cooperative video games OR you want to play some competitive video games and don't mind that I will probably win.

You'll come with me to one of those subtitled movies that I can't seem to drag my friends to.

You think I'm attractive and want to go on a date.
So strap me on and raise me high
Cause buddy I'm not afraid to die
But life is long and it's tremendous
And we're glad that you're here with us
And since we know an end will come
It makes our living fun
