Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My most important personal tenet - always stop for lemonade stands.
If you ask kids what they plan to do with their money, 99% of the
time the answer is "Um. Save it."
I find it alternately amusing/infuriating that "active" and "laid
back" are used synonymously on this site.
I think the most important objective in life is how we treat each
other. This encompasses not only The Golden Rule but also using
common sense and being aware of how your actions directly and
indirectly affect others - never make anyone else's job harder. The
second most important objective in life should be how we treat the
Earth. I don’t think perceived futility should be an excuse for
I am too lazy to take sexy selfies specifically for this site. Here
is a near perfect representation of my body type -
I absolutely hate online dating* I am extremely extroverted - (by
true definition of the word, not the talk-your-ear off/get in your
biz-naaaz/other over-the-top traits some people don't care for) I
gain my energy from being around other people. This site does
nothing for me. I would much rather meet people in person, but
alas, no man will ever ask me to the cinema after "accidentally"
brushing my hand while we reach for the same potato in the produce
section. So here we are again.
*FYI: If you exchange more than a few messages, ask someone out,
make plans/exchange numbers, then subsequently DELETE your profile
- you have attained jerk-status. Lose interest? I get it. Change
your mind? Fine. Find somebody else? Go for it. Just let me
know!!!!! One sentence will do. You wouldn't get up and walk away
in the middle of a conversation with someone, so don't do it here.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am a self-employed horticulturalist. Horticulture and botany are
not the same. Being self-employed is both wonderful and terrible.
This is not the end goal.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Choosing/making gifts for people. Paying attention. Eavesdropping.
Remembering. Procrastinating. Baking. Experimenting with baking.
Failing at experimenting with baking. Getting mad when my baking
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am very short.
In case you were wondering, I am not a "little person" (aka dwarf)
- just a short girl by normal genetics.
I am always confused/amused when people ask me "So, what's it like
to be short? What challenges have you faced?" - as if I am
handicapped or the world is completely different from my point of
view. Well, actually the world is a little different from my point
of view, but this is my normal body and I'm used to it. I don't
feel small until I hug a tall friend, or need to climb Mt.
Grocerystoreshelf to reach the delicious summit of Reese's
If a genie popped up and offered me an extra 6 inches, I wouldn't
turn him down (that's what she said) but I generally like myself
and don't have a problem with my height.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

- Wide-brimmed hat
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- Father John Misty
- The West
- The Far West (Australia)
- What steps I can take to stop being so methodical
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Trying to keep my energy up after the work week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am very honest, but I only admit private things if you ask me
about them. If you don't have the "howboutyou?" gene, we are not a
good match. *This is extremely important. My first instinct is to
ask about you, not talk about myself. If you are the inverse we
won't go very far.

2. You treat everyone you meet with not only respect, but kindness,
appreciation, and interest.

right. You don't think being gay means being wrong.
5. You agree that humans have an impact on our global climate. And
more importantly, that it is our responsibility to be doing
something about it.
6. You are not addicted to social media. You do not need to post
