Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi! I'm Tiffany. I'm 26, finished my MA in Poetry at UChicago last
year, and I have a BA in English with a minor in Chemistry.
Basically, I like words and explosions. I'm a bit of a bro, in that
I love superheroes, Star Wars, and the gym. I absolutely love
reading poetry, or reading anything for that matter, and I write
poetry as well. I'm just a pretty chill person. I'd be equally
happy to play in the mud or to have a rousing philosophical debate.
Both at the same time would also be acceptable.
I'm really into personal health. I live a mostly plant-based
lifestyle, and I lift and practice yoga. I couldn't be with someone
who didn't think it was important to take care of their body.
I love to sing, act, dance, write, and play music (guitar, piano,
and bass, and I'm learning the harmonica). I've been in bands
briefly, never seriously, but I really miss the band dynamic.
I like to consider myself a mixture between Kerouac and Ke$ha. Just
let that one soak in a little bit.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just started a new position with a property management firm in
River North. Living that 9 to 5 life at the moment.
I'm preparing to go and spend 3 months living in a tent at an
ashram in the Bahamas in February. After that, we'll see. :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Alphabetizing, balancing chemical equations, climbing things,
diagramming sentences, drinking coffee, face massages, making
smoothies, making to-do lists, reading, Robot Unicorn Attack,
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes I dress like Pat Benatar.
And I tend to sing in public, when it's probably not totally
appropriate to do so.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine. Books. Yoga. Meditation. Fire. Friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I must admit I've turned into a bit of a conspiracy theorist over
the past couple of years. But like, the more you learn about the
CIA and fucked up shit that happens behind the scenes among people
of power, the harder it is NOT to be, amiright?
Also, minimalism. I've been downsizing my life, but there's still a
lot of stuff that I could definitely do without. I don't really
understand the point of placing much value in belongings, aside
from like my books, musical instruments, laptop, and some clothes.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Well last Friday night, I just watched Hocus Pocus in my underpants
and ate a bunch of Oreos...so if that's any indication...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been pulled over multiple times for drunk driving when I was
entirely sober, because I became really involved in talking to
myself in the rear-view mirror...
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think I'm neat and you are also neat.
You know how to do acro-yoga or can swing dance.

You want to find groupons for things like rollerskating, boat
rides, extreme trampolines, or pole-dancing classes...and then do
You should not message me if you have a kid, are out of my age
range, are bigoted in any way, don't actually live in Chicago, are
a Republican, or just want to sex me up. No thanks.
You should definitely message me if you have a tattoo of Donatello,
the Ninja Turtle, anywhere on your body...or Donatello, the
Renaissance artist...that would be pretty cool too.
Be passionate. Be mindful. Be authentic. Be kind.
Side note: some of my question answers are really old. I may or may
not still stand by things I said when I was 20....
