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 looking for a relationship , not just platonic friends. Ideally, I'm looking for something long-term and exclusive. ...hmmm, I'll just leave it there for now (updated regularly). Aside from dating, I'm also accepting applications for cuddle buddies, hiking buddies, salsa dance partners, business partners, and ...masseuses? :p (A note on the cuddle buddy thing: It's cuddling, and it's platonic. Yes, it works, and yes, it's awesome. Not interested in casual encounters)

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 And while I realize beggars can't be choosers, please read the "you should message me if" section. It's easy, I promise. Your message is half written for you!)

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... I don't have an answer for you. Every time I take the test, I get a completely different answer. I think this means that the way I react depends entirely on the context. The only thing that's consistent is the J. So apparently I'm judgmental. Sorry. :p Oh, also I'm pretty sure I'm an extrovert. Yay extroverts! I feel like the vast majority of people are introverts.
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). (This is actually a much larger aspect of my personality than comes across in my profile. I love having a job that is not only intellectually stimulating, but also allows me to directly contribute to helping people. I like it quite a bit.)
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.
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 wonder why no one comments on all the random links I have in my profile. They're amusing, I promise. :p
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!
I'm really tired of first dates. Can we skip the coffee/tea and cuddle? (I'm actually serious about that. Cuddle buddies are awesome!)

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...).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Hmm...so, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to make online dating work more efficiently and I think the solution is to create an entirely new dating business. :p I'm working on that, but since that's not going to be up any time soon, I'll try to make OKC work for me. Please play my game!

Step 1: Check deal-breakers list. Good? Proceed to step 2. :p
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!)
Children from a previous relationship (I have a kitten. 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.
You have an animal beard :p Need I say more?
Beard bouquets on the other hand... are just as amusing (ok, this last one is silly, I don't really care about your beard status).

Step 2: Pick a few of these lovely and only somewhat random questions and write about them.
• 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?
• Favorite places you've traveled to/places you want to travel to.
• Ideal vacation: Minimalist vs. luxurious and relaxing?
• Favorite things to do in Seattle/the surrounding areas?
• And lastly! How do you feel about putting yourself into ridiculous situations? (costumes, strangers, candy, Monty Python coconuts, etc)

Step 3: Profit! :p
(Ok, actually, step 3 should be... your turn to interrogate me! In all seriousness, I'm much more likely to respond to a message that has questions in it.)
