Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm in love with a lot of things. Books and movies and music and
theatre and art, to name a few.
I grew up as Northeast as you can get in the state of North
Carolina (on one side is the Outer Banks, on the other is Virginia
I'm pretty clumsy. I fall a lot. :)
I like things from and studying different cultures.
I studied abroad Spring 2010, and that influenced me in a big
I love going to bookstores and finding random performances in the
city to go to with friends and silly events no one pays enough
attention to on campus and downtown.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just received a BA in English at UNC Greensboro; I moved to
Pennsylvania last year to get my Masters in Publishing and
I aspire to be a book editor; I might have to move to NYC, but I'd
prefer to stay in Philly or go to Boston/DC/Baltimore. Back-up plan
is to work in a bookstore. I am Assistant Manager at an indie
bookstore on the Main Line, and I LOVELOVELOVE it there. Some days
I toy with the idea of opening my own indie bookstore, but I just
don't know at this point.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Anything with words.
I can read, write, edit, debate, all that jazz.
I'm also good at talking, listening, having fun in arbitrary
situations, sleeping, making lists, falling down, being
I'm sure there's more.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
tea (sweet, chai, and English Breakfast above all)
a kitty of some sort in my life
family and friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think and think and overthink every aspect of everything.
It’s just what I do.
I like thinking about happiness and the future and different
aspects of life.
And I think about people a lot.
Who they are, what makes them that way, all that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching bad TV.
Out to dinner, at the movies, or playing Wii with friends.
On special Friday nights, I like going to some event (play,
musical, concert, etc.).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I never want kids. I think I would make a terrible mother, and am
too selfish to compromise any of my dreams or goals for a family. I
have the utmost respect for those who do want kids, but it's just
not what I'm looking for.
I do not compromise my beliefs for anyone, so don’t ask me
This doesn’t make me a prude or a jerk. It’s just a fact.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
--you're interested in friendship.
--you want to tell me something.
--you have some question or comment.
That said, I do have some minor tips when it comes to sending me
messages. First; if you want me to consider you, give me a reason.
Show me you're considerate enough to read this section, if not my
entire profile before messaging me. I also prefer to date within my
own age group, so if you're older than 25, I'd suggest using your
time a little more productively. If you have kids already, it's
unlikely I'll be the right choice for you. If you have a low match%
with me (below 70%) it seems pretty likely to me that we won't get
along the best, and I might not really consider you. I'm also NOT
interested in casual sex, so if that's your objective, look
I'm not very good at meeting new people -- it gives me the willies.
So mostly I'm looking for some interesting people to talk to and
get to know, a lot more than dating.
Finally, I'm a college student. My education takes precedence to
most other things now; so I will not move somewhere else for you,
or drop out of school for you. If you don't support me, then you
aren't for me.
