Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like birds and words.
I am a heterosexual, cisgendered, redheaded, and able-bodied
linguist, feminist, atheist activist, and likely the biggest Amanda
Palmer fan you'll ever meet. (And if you're like "CHALLENGE
ACCEPTED" to that, by the way, then we should most DEFINITELY
become best friends immediately, if not sooner.)
I'm a huge advocate of the ampersand (&), the interrobang (‽),
and the Oxford Comma.
And ... I don't know what else to say?! (See what I just did
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm still trying to answer that one for myself ... Ah well, I'm
I recently graduated from Northwestern University with a B.A. in
Linguistics, and I'm currently working in a bar that specializes in
craft beer while I sort out my greater life trajectory.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Kicking your ass at Scrabble, identifying birds, and painting my
face like it's my job.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either the fiery red hair, the resonant laughter, or the fact that
I shave off my eyebrows, but I don't shave under my arms.
I'm ironic like that.

or anything by Nietzsche, Montaigne, Carl Sagan, &c.
I don't read books very much anymore, but when I do, they're
usually on science or philosophy. Not a big fiction person.
Eek, how much time do you have ...
Although, in terms of TV, I should mention that I have a gigantic
hard-on for Peep Show. David Mitchell is a god among men, my
friends. And I'll watch anything with Gordon Ramsay in it.
Although, I must say that Boy Meets World will forever remain the
greatest show of all time, and that's a fact.
Amanda Fucking Palmer is the air that I breathe.
Mother Mother comes in second.
Beyond that, I'm open to anything.
Anything with mushrooms involved. Also, I really truly hate
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) THE INTERNET. OH, INTERNET, Y U SO GOOD?!
2) That's all I can come up with right now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social justice, feminism, sex education reform — the works.
Also, what birds must be thinking when they're perched on telephone
wires. "Look what they made for us!"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a survivor of repeated sexual assault. I suffer from PTSD,
depression, and EDNOS. I'm in recovery, but these things take

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're willing to read my blog series on surviving sexual
It's a bummer, I know, but hey, shit's real.
**EDIT: After receiving a rather disturbing message on here, I
would also like to add DO NOT MESSAGE ME just to victim-blame me.
Please and thank you!
