Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I haven't a clue how to tell you who I am in a paragraph you'll
want to read, so here are some decent schemas to attach me
I'm a pseudogeek. I can't fix your computer, but I can suggest a
better program for you to use, or find the taskbar you lost. I love
many forms of games, including cards, board games, and RPGs. I've
even been known to paint miniatures.
I'm madly in love with theatre tech, but it isn't good for me, so I
dumped it a few years back. We do see each other occasionally. In
the meantime, I've been with psychology for three years now, and we
have a pretty good relationship. It has been suggested that it will
take another five years of school before I'll be able to properly
diagnose my own mental diseases, but I've determined that I'm
almost exactly as sane as is healthy.
I set a great store by creativity and individuality, and I
sometimes see them where other people don't. I'm very selective in
who I associate with, but highly devoted to the people I choose. I
appreciate most forms of humor, but particularly wit and
I fancy myself something of an artist, but haven't found a single
medium that quite works for me. So I'll dabble in poetry,
playwriting, photography, dance... I'm even considering
a) The tattoo was temporary. I miss it terribly much.
b) OKCupid has learned to spell "witty"! I'm very proud of
I am warm, witty, and weird
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just started grad school, so trying to get a job/pull my life
together/get grades/stay sane.
Long-term, I will probably shrink heads. By which I mean, be a
therapist. Unless there happen to be some unused heads handy.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Misapplication of psychological theories, sewing, giving hugs,
confusing poor innocent passersby, over-analysis, organizing
things, listening and learning.
I'm not necessarily all that good at music, but I indulge in it
I'm also good at dancing poorly.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The madness that is my hair, that everything I'm wearing at the
moment is black, or the fact that I'm inexplicably singing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
a) Ender's Game, Sabriel, American Gods, Catch 22, Brave New World,
1984, Snow Crash, LotR, etc.
b) I don't see enough movies to have strong preferences, but I'm
fond of V for Vendetta, Much Ado About Nothing, The Incredibles,
and most recently, Some Like it Hot.
c) Dar Williams, Vienna Teng, Flogging Molly, Gipsy Kings, Leonard
Cohen, Jonathan Coulton, Solas and lots'n'lots of Broadway
d) Indian food, udon, and chocolate.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love (in the broadest sense), music, things to create, chocolate,
hugs, and fiction.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How puzzles/machines/shapes/people/stitches fit together. The fact
that I should be doing something more productive. Potential future
worlds or sci-fi/fantasy universes. Personality analysis.
Unintended meanings of words (for instance: Unwooable. In an older
iteration of English, this would have meant that it was pointless
to flirt with the person in question. On OKC, it just means that
you actually have to talk to them if you want to tell them they're
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading, singing, playing a board/card game, dancing, talking with
people I love, stabbing people with duct tape daggers, gaming, or
maybe even attending a party.
Well, actually, since I no longer live on a college campus, I'm
more likely to spend my Friday evenings having dinner with my
family, playing Civilization, or attending an event at the local
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I effectively don't keep secrets, at least on my own behalf. I
usually take my desire to hide anything as a signal that I haven't
dealt with it properly yet, and should discuss it for my own
Private? Well, I'm rather paranoid. I'm afraid of heights, spiders
and the dark. Most people don't realize, though, because I don't
much like allowing myself weaknesses.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Honestly, you probably shouldn't. I almost never log in, and
usually only do so to play with personality tests or read the blog.
