Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a laid back, cheerful, nomadic sort of person. As much as I
enjoy having a cool little apartment I like the freedom of
travelling more. Yes, I'm an anglophone, but I'm working very hard
on becoming bilingual.
I'm pretty active, I spend a good chunk of my time running or at
the gym trying to get better at running. I'm not into the bar
scene, but I love live music, hanging out with friends at chill
pubs and cooking massive meals for huge groups of people. Having
said that, I like crashing out with a movie too. I love music and
mostly listen to indie type stuff (except for the mp3 player I run
with, which is an embarrassing mix of pop punk from my teenage
Besides work and travel I do a lot of random stuff. I am terrible
at pretty much all sports as I have zero hand-eye but I just ran my
first marathon and am starting to rock climb. I can pretend I know
how to play soccer, I do some art work that involves spray paint
and exacto knives. I cook, attempt to play the guitar, read too
much, ski whenever I can and hike through the bushes as much as
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My goal is to work with Doctors Without Borders and maybe,
eventually, the World Health Organization. I think that if I can
make that happen I'll be able to keep travelling forever, but still
have a great career and some stability. Best of both worlds!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. No seriously, I really am.
Setting nearly unachievable goals and pushing my self incredibly
hard to achieve them.
Playing one of the 3 songs I'm really good at on the guitar and
then stopping so that everyone thinks I can play.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never asked, to be honest. My smile, maybe? Possibly that I
forget where I am and bop along to my music in public a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books- Anything by Steinbeck, most things by Vonnegut, A
Confederacy of Dunces, The
Count of Monte Cristo, City of Thieves.
Movies- Amelie. I can never think of anything else I'm willing
call my favorite but I flat out love this movie.
Shows- Game of Thrones, Criminal Minds, the Mindy Project. I'm all
over the shop when it comes to TV.
Music- Mostly folky indie. I have a soft spot for West Coast Indie,
because it sounds like home.
Food- anything that comes from any part of Asia.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Pretty much the basics- food, water, a bed. I'm absurdly good at
going without. It's a talent.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What country I'd like to go to next, what I'd like my Masters to
focus in, how to get my housemates to start washing their dishes
and what I'm going to make for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out for a weekend hike, cooking dinner for a giant pack of people,
planning my next excursion, crashed out in front of a
I don't think I have a typical Friday, actually.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm afraid of ladybugs. There's a story behind it, it's not as
irrational as it seems, but it still seems to amuse people when I
panic when confronted with one.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-you give awesome bear hugs
-you want a surf buddy that can't actually surf but greatly enjoys
flailing around in the waves.
-you own fewer shoes than the number of countries you've been to
(or want to go to)
-you won't think I'm crazy when I suggest hiking for a first date
instead of getting a drink.
