Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm still pretty new to Tucson and just starting my master's
program so I'm still trying to figure AZ out. Anyway, I'm from San
Francisco and really miss the fog and the food. If anyone has any
food adventures they want to have, holla. Or any other adventures,
really. I'm pretty much open to whatever.
I really like having those deep conversations that seem to happen
most naturally at 2AM. I'm not much into small talk (though I do it
when I need to) and I'd much rather talk about things that mean
anything, from intellectual things to politics to food to hopes and
I tend to be a bit of a optimist and a hopeless romantic type. I
enjoy making people happy, myself included.
Also, I identify as queer, not gay (my option here), because it
includes everyone I'm attracted to and doesn't limit
Oh, and I think cuddling is pretty much the best thing in the whole
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being generally low-level stressed out and reading a lot. Ah, the
life of a grad student. After this, though, I'm not really sure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
-reading maps, both fancy and paper kinds
-being weird at random moments
-scoring well at singing/karaoke type video games, but I'm pretty
sure the singing is still bad
-cuddling and hugging and whatnot
-mixing drinks when given appropriate supplies
-reading a lot
-petting puppies and kittens
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm quiet but totally paying a lot of attention? I'm not
actually that quiet, but the first ten minutes are a short period
of shyness. Or maybe that I play(ed) rugby based on one of my
sweatshirts? It (the sweatshirt) always gets strangers asking me
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-fog and water and beautiful outside places (living in Tucson has
been strange because the first two missing)
-my car, because it's nice to be able to get away
-Rachel Maddow. I don't believe everything she says 100%, but she
is damn cute.
-my phone, not because I like talking on it so much as because I
need it to waste time
-headphones so that I can listen to music or npr or porn at
-martha stewart magazine, because even though it makes me feel
almost painfully hetero and hegemon, I really like the recipes and
not included because they are essential for all living creatures:
food, water, and lots of cuddles and sex.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
All kinds of things. Sometimes, I get really in my head and can't
really succinctly put into words what goes on in my brain when that
happens. Other times, my mind is so fried from grad school that I
can't think about more than simple, immediate things.
Oh, and like any good 20-something, I think about what I am doing
with my life and what everything means and why everything is both
so great and so fucked up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Reading for class, probably. Which sounds kind of lame, but it's
not actually that bad in practice. Ill probably be drinking a beer
or three, which helps. And I'm not opposed to going out, it just
isn't something that has happened very many times recently.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Grad school occasionally makes me feel like I have no idea what I
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I sound maybe interesting, even though my attempt at filling this
out might feel a little lackluster.
You want to do friend things or casual date-y things.
You own puppies.
You have a neat and teachable skill.
Specifically, you cook something really well and want to share it
as food or knowledge.
I mean really, if there is anything that makes you feel like we
could talk for more than 15 minutes, I'm game to attempt to do
Oh, and I—like many others— am a tad shy and initially hesitant to
start a conversation up, so really, message me. I won't bite...
