My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
TL;DR:
I live an exciting, adventurous, silly, social, and healthy life. I'm pretty happy with it. I'm looking for someone like-minded/like-demeanored to do random acts of kindness, absurd acts of silliness, outdoor activities, intellectual discussions, and of course, cuddling, with.

Type of relationship I'm looking for
Despite the implications of my username, I'm more interested in finding a romantic relationship here than platonic friends. Ideally, I'm looking for an emotionally invested, long-term relationship. If you're not open to this at the moment, you should probably move on. I definitely understand the not wanting anything serious/feeling disgusted by the "boyfriend"/"girlfriend" terms, but I'm not there anymore. :) Also, sometimes this is confusing, but... I'm open to the idea of either monogamy or polyamory depending on the person/people. Please ask me about it for clarification. :)

I should also probably warn you. I'm going to be ridiculously busy for the next few months. I'm working on grad school + trying to start a business.... (in other words, yes, I am actually crazy). But, I love meeting new people, so I still make time for it. In any case, if we've mutually matched and I haven't sent you a message.... sorry, that's why. I will now shamelessly promote my business! It's an OFFLINE dating business! If you're interested in being a beta tester, please let me know! You can check out (and like!) my facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/accelerdate

Personality traits (Me):
Vibrant & exuberant, friendly, outgoing, extroverted, and welcoming but not loud. I dislike loud people.
Optimistic and Cheerful I am pretty much the embodiment of the word "happy"
Creative/Artistic
Competitive- I like challenges. Physical challenges, board game challenges, baking challenges. Any challenge! The weirder the better. (Mostly I compete with myself though, so no worries)
Adventurous/Outdoorsy
Lightly nerdy I'm on the not-so-nerdy end of the spectrum. Although that's relative to my friends and not to yours... so you might think I'm way nerdy. :p
Confident
Silly Have you seen my pictures?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
TL;DR:
Much to the dismay of my boss, I have a great work/life balance. I do, however, have an absolutely terrible work/life/relaxation balance. I'm working on adding in this whole sleep thing to the schedule.

Long version:
Grad school: Regenerating the pancreas! (to cure diabetes). (I love having a job that is not only intellectually stimulating, but also allows me to directly contribute to helping people!) Want to learn more? Please check out my video! (it's understandable, I promise). Full disclosure: I sound like a 12 year old. (In case that link didn't work: https://www.thediabetesresearchconnection.org/project/can-we-repair-damaged-pancreas-creating-new-insulin-producing-cells)
Becoming an entrepreneur! I'm starting a dating business! It's equally terrifying and exciting. (Ok, more terrifying). But, ask me about it! I like to talk about it & feedback is always helpful.
Outdoor Adventuring!: Hiking, camping, picnics in Seattle parks
Playing board games (see below for list)
Creating artwork: Digital photography, painting, building a cat tree made from driftwood...
Decorating myself: Henna, facepaint, wacky hair, costumes... :)
Dancing Salsa, bachata, Kizomba, swing (not clubs)
Exercising: Training for the Big Climb in March. Want to do a marathon at some point this year, but not sure when I can fit the training in (summer is for camping!), I do other things too (weights, swimming, etc).
Baking: I like challenging baking projects
Learning some programming!

Less frequent (but not less awesome!) activities:
Paragliding, White water rafting, White water kayaking, Flyboarding, Flying a plane, Glassblowing, Jetskiing, Zip lining, Skiing, and Snowmobiling.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Different take on this one. I asked my friends what they would put in a guide to living with me/being friends with me and here's what they came up with (verbatim):
"I know it sounds weird, but just roll with it, and it will be awesome. That could be the entire guide."
• "As far as living with you, I am kind of drawing a blank because you are seriously the easiest person to live with."
• "You kind of perpetually exist in a state of running 10 minutes late, which takes some getting used to. I learned to roll with it, for the most part." sorry, that's entirely true. I do, however, text early to say that I'm running late
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Warmth, friendship, feeling safe, relaxation, and oxytocin. = cuddling!

Okay, I should probably admit this. I think I'm a cuddle addict. Sometimes, when I'm not in a relationship, I cuddle with my friends or find cuddle buddies. Unbelievably enough, it's pretty uncomplicated. We're just friends who happen to cuddle. Everyone needs comfort and cuddling sometimes! It's completely platonic though. We talk about the people we're dating to each other and hang out with mutual friends. It's great. Anyway, just wanted to put that out there. Also, if you read my profile and think "she seems cool, but I definitely don't want to date her", fantastic! Send me a message about cuddling and maybe we can work something out. :)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...dating. Due to my frustrations with the time commitments of dating, I have decided to start a more efficient dating business! (Because starting businesses totally gives you more free time.) In any case, I actually really like my idea and am learning quite a lot from the process. Sometimes it's overwhelming, but mostly it's just a cool challenge. Plus, I get to do all these weird social experiments on people like you. :p I love discussing it and getting feedback, so let me know if you want to chat about it.

Update! My team and I are conducting a survey on dating preferences to make sure we're on the right track. Please help us out and take the survey! Here's the link: https://accelerdate.formstack.com/forms/dating_preferences Thanks!

Also... how awesome it would be to have a zipline from Capitol Hill to Ballard. Any ideas on how I can convince the authorities that this is a great plan??
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Sometimes I sit on the floor and wrap my hands around my knees. Why? Because that's how I roll! :p

(See "What I'm doing with my life" section. It's usually busy. Very occasionally, delightfully not busy.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
• When I go to the gym, I almost always pick locker #42...

• I have recently decided that my "favorite food" is leftovers. They're just so convenient!

• I may or may not have been kicked off of OKC previously. (nothing bad, I promise)
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
TL;DR: Click that like button, and if we both like each other, then let's talk

As a busy person, I understand that free time is valuable and online dating takes way too much of it. So, let's keep things simple.

Step 1: Check deal-breakers list.
(I try to avoid negativity on my profile, but these things are called deal-breakers for a reason. You don't need to address them, just read and acknowledge.). That said, I am both personally and professionally interested in YOUR deal-breakers. Please tell me what they are! These are mine:
Smoking
Getting drunk often (drinking is fine, I actually drink fairly often these days, just not in excess)
Very religious (I respect religion and religious people, but I'm definitely an atheist and it seems like strong differences in religion just cause relationship problems)
Regular drug use
Dislike of cats (I have one! If you're allergic, that should be okay though, my cat is hypoallergenic!)
Children from a previous relationship (I have kittens. That's my max level of commitment right now)
Living far from Seattle(No car for me! I live in capitol hill )
Disbelief in evolution, dislike of stem cell research, and/or PETA membership
Pessimism. I'm an eternal optimist and pessimists kind of rub me the wrong way.
Lack of ambition (Generally I use the doesn't have a college degree yet criteria to filter this, but that's not always entirely accurate.)
Passiveness: It took me a while to put my finger on this one, but basically, I'm looking for someone who's energetic, curious, driven, and passionate and it shows. If you're just kinda meh, that's not going to work. You have to keep up with my ridiculous energy.

Step 2: Click "like"/that golden star
The one thing Tinder has going for it, is you can only talk with people who like you. I've tried to convince OKC to do this as well, but they're just not listening. So, I try to implement this in my own use of the site. Occasionally I break down and message people I haven't matched with, but I try not to be hypocritical and wait to see if we mutually match. So click like!

Step 3: Profit! :p
Erm... I guess then we should message each other. I'm most interested in hearing these things from you:
• What are you most passionate about/what do you get really excited about doing/working on/ talking about? And why?
• What are you most excited to learn about/how to do? Why?
• What type(s) of relationship(s) are you looking for? What qualities are you looking for? What are your deal-breakers?
• How do you feel about putting yourself into ridiculous situations? (costumes, strangers, candy, Monty Python coconuts, etc)

Nerdy, and awesome, pick up lines are also appreciated. :)

Or, if I'm online, feel free to IM me. I like IMing. Sometimes I sign in just to chat.
