Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm short, round, ginger, and driven by curiosity. I'm a walking
contradiction and an admittedly terrible cynic.
I like scientists who are poets and poets who are scientists. I
like the free exchange of ideas and information that is the
internet. I like knowing my place in the universe and how deeply
I'm connected to it while still being an infinitesimal speck. I've
got the cosmos swirling between my bones.
I should note that while I understand they're necessary for the
algorithms to work, I find the questions posed by this site to be
really (annoyingly) prescriptive. I have trouble answering a lot of
them, so I wouldn't take my answers too seriously if I were you.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just left my life insurance job of three years to go back to
school full time. I'm terrified.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Napping, being painfully introverted, internet window shopping,
wishing Morrissey weren't such an insufferable tit, drawing dead
trees, and understanding the importance of the Oxford comma.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm human, I suppose.
Also, I am fat and am okay with being fat. Not "chubby" or "curvy"
or any other stupid cover-up word. Fat. I'm not a raging social
justice warrior but I don't have patience with people who are
shitty about fatties.

Help your potential matches find common interests.
BOOKS: All of them.
MOVIES: I'm not TOO picky, but I can say that I'm not a big fan of
SHOWS: I don't watch a lot of TV. Just The Office (US), Parks &
Recreation, Black Books, The IT Crowd, I'm Alan Partridge, and
Doctor Who when I feel like it. Also, I'll watch any dang thing
that has Karl Pilkington in it.
MUSIC: The Smiths, The Decemberists, Joy Division, Bright Eyes,
Bis, Nick Drake, Sufjan Stevens, Matt Costa, Iron & Wine,
Driftless Pony Club, Death Cab For Cutie, Modest Mouse...Don't let
this list fool you. I like quite a lot.
FOOD: I drink at least three cups of tea a day (just plain black
tea with a splash of milk, thanks), and am an avid consumer of
clementines, spinach, and muenster cheese. I could also live
happily on lemonade for the rest of my life if given the chance.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Animals, NPR, curiosity, love, books, and houseplants.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Trying to grasp at wispy moments of nostalgia. I'm such a
sentimental little thing.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Wondering when 90s grunge fashion will be stylish again and
preparing my collection of oversized cardigans for that glorious
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm an atheist but I think High Church art, music, and ritual are
just the most beautiful and fascinating things. At the time of this
writing, I've been listening to Gregorian Chant for 3 days
Also, the summer I spent embalming bodies was the best time of my
life and was the closest I will ever come to having a "spiritual"
