Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This is not a summary, but a random list of facts. Because I don't
- I've discovered recently that I don't like dogs. I feel like
everyone should like dogs, but most have too much nervous energy.
And I have too much nervous energy. And that is far too much
nervous energy to go around.
- I don't cook. I've been told I should like to cook, because I'm
"creative." But I do like to eat. So, I think I would be a good
match for someone who likes to cook.
- I've been told I look *much* younger than I am. Recently at a
restaurant I was ID'd getting a beer…with lunch. I don't know why
the lunch part makes it worse. But it does.
- I used to work as a psychotherapist and I feel an obligation to
tell people that, so they will know that I can (and will) read
- I'm very liberal. Like, super liberal.
- I used to draw and paint, but haven't made much time for it
recently. I think I'm going to try and force myself.
- I can be quite jumpy and am easily embarrassed.
- I am much more comfortable one-on-one or in small groups.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm originally from CT, but fled to San Diego back in 2011. I came
back a year or so ago due to a health scare. (Don't worry. I'm
fine.) I'm now trying to figure out how I can live a bi-costal
I currently work for a startup nonprofit and luckily have a pretty
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- lip syncing
- protesting sleep
- making halloween costumes
- guessing people's weight (Ok, I only did that once.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
An odd number of people have commented on how much I smile...though
I always believed that I smiled a normal amount. Unfortunately,
many people misinterpret this as flirting, when just as often it is
discomfort and/or awkwardness.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like books, but I don't read much. However, a few I've
actually enjoyed reading include: I Was Told There'd Be Cake,
Stumbling on Happiness, and My Life as an Experiment.
Movies and music: Yes to both.
Food: LOVE most food, particularly sweets and breakfast food. Bacon
and chocolate make me happy, separately or together.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- my FAMILY
- close friends
- my phone/camera
- some sort of creative outlet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to combine my random talents and passions in a way that
positively impacts other people. And why it is the the Jetson's
morning routine is not yet a reality. I think we, as a society,
need to refocus our technological efforts and get on that.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching standup comedy, having a drink (or several), dancing at a
dive bar, or snuggling in jammies and watching a movie.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If you send me a message that says 'hi' or 'hey,' I will not
respond, 100% of the time. And I will probably hate you
I mean, I get it. This whole thing is awkward. You could spend 5
min drafting a message and then the person might not reply. But if
you want someone to respond, putting out a microscopic amount of
effort usually helps. I mean, how is one supposed to respond to
See, it's just not good. The only other thing that might be worse
is "what's up?"
You should message me if
