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 am actually looking for a relationship, not just platonic friends. Ideally, I'm looking for something long-term and exclusive. (But, I'm also accepting applications for cuddle buddies, hiking buddies, salsa dance partners, business partners, and ... masseuses? (One can dream, right? All platonic, of course))

Back to the dating thing, when I rate you highly it means I am interested in chatting with you. I often don't send messages, not because I'm lazy, but because I'm trying to utilize both of our time efficiently. No point in one of us writing a message when the other person isn't interested in the first place. So, if you get an email saying I've rated you, and you want me to write you a message, rate me back and I'll send you one. (But bear with me, it might take a while. Sorry, I'll just apologize for that upfront. If you want to take the initiative there, please do. I won't complain :p)

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?
Oh, and if you're into the acronym things, apparently I'm ENFJ. Interesting, since I used to be an introvert. Also, this means on the Star Wars personality type chart, I'm Padme Amidala. I think this is acceptable, I've even got the outfit. :)

Personality Traits (You???):
...is passionate about what they do (job and/or hobbies).
...is optimistic, and generally happy with their life
...can put up with all my craziness (I tend to coerce my friends into celebrating wacky holidays with me)
...challenges me & challenges himself/strives for self-improvement/continuous learning
...is intelligent
...is interested in science
...is as enthusiastic about traveling as I am
...is outdoorsy hiking and camping are mandatory summer activities that we must share!
...is genuinely interested in bettering society by what they do (that's my main motivation for scientific research. I want to make a meaningful contribution)
...is communicative
...is artistic/open to artistic ventures
Basically, I'm looking for someone intelligent and diverse with a zest for life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
TL;DR: I have a great work/life balance. I 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)
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: Apparently I was too busy for marathon training, so I've dropped down to a half (full next year). I do other things too (weights, swimming, stairs, etc)
Baking: I like challenging baking projects
Learning some programming!
Starting a dating business ask me about it sometime, I like to talk about it & opinions are always helpful.

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.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being picked out of a crowd by street performers to be used in their shows... :/ I've been told it's my red hair.
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
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.) I love discussing it and getting feedback, so let me know if you want to chat about it.

Also, I sometimes wonder why no one comments on the animal and bouquet beards, or the Disney Princess Bathtub board game, or the Darth Vader videos, or the kissing video? And then I realize I have a lot of random things on my profile... :)
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)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really tired of first dates. Can we skip the coffee/tea and cuddle? (I'm actually serious about that)

Also, I'm kind of intrigued by this social experiment: Fair warning: I may or may not greet you in such fashion. (I probably won't, but maybe...).

Ok, ok. I'll admit it. I'm probably more into my dating business than actually going on dates at the moment. Dating is exhausting and I'm kind of on vacation. :) However, if you are awesome, I'll make time to meet you. :p
I’m looking for
  • Straight guys only
  • Ages 26–32
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You get a message saying "Yay_New_Friends likes you!"
-You get a message saying "It's a match!"

The rating system is my way of saying I'm interested in talking to you, asking you if you're also interested in talking, and prioritizing who I message. If I "like" you, I guarantee I will respond to a message. However, I will admit I am absolutely horrible at sending the first message (I used send quite a few messages. Now... I have 2 jobs. But I will respond to messages! It might take a few weeks though. Sorry).

You can also IM me. I like IMing. If I'm signed in and chat is on, send me a message! (but please, bring your manners)

Deal-breakers! (Because, let's be honest, those are important. So important, in fact, that that's the basis for my dating business)
-smoking
-getting drunk often (drinking is fine, I actually drink fairly often these days, just not in excess)
-very religious (I'm a pretty serious atheist and we wouldn't mesh)
-regular drug use
-dislike of cats (I have one! If you're allergic, that should be okay though, my cat is hypoallergenic!)
-lack of ambition and/or passion (Generally I use the doesn't have a college degree yet criteria to filter this, but that's not always entirely accurate.
-passive: 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.
-children from a previous relationship (I have a kitten. That's my max level of commitment right now)
-no interest in a long-term relationship That's what I'm looking for. However, if you don't want one... and you seem interesting (but not too much of a perfect fit) message me and maybe we can be cuddle buddies. :)
-flakiness
-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
-you have an animal beard :p Need I say more? Beard bouquets on the other hand... are just as amusing
