Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am in some ways very go-with-the flow, but in some ways not. When
I am in a group, I don't make the decisions of what to do. I
usually am very quiet.
I am loyal and not promiscuous, quirky and intellectual. I am not a
partier, really. I am probably not the type to go bungee
I'm a bit foul-mouthed in everyday life, but around my family, who
are very conservative. Few things are taboo for me.
One of my favorite quotations is from John Donne: "No man is an
island, entire of itself". Poetry can be beautiful, but I don't
really get the comment from my high school literature teacher to
use words that give a thousand pictures.
I enjoy hikes in the woods, and kayaking. I used to play guitar in
a mediocre way but pretty much gave up on that.
I tend to think in a literal way. Like the music arts (rock music,
folk rock, some folk, and some country) and somewhat like visual
arts (especially Vincent Van Gogh's paintings). I am terrible a
creating arts, though; I couldn't write a good poem to save my
I tend to to over-think and analyze a lot :-).
I am recovering from Calvinism :) Getting close to being totally
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working while living life.
It would be nice to get a Masters degree some day in biology from
GVSU, but I don't know if I will ever do it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Thinking outside the box. Critical thinking. Reading people. And,
I'm a compassionate person. Also, speaking my mind.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My height (they think I'm a basketball player). Shy at first but
open up very fast online.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Shakespeare's Othello and Kenneth Miller's Finding Darwin's God.
Also, Michael Crichton's Sphere.
I loved Star Trek and Star Wars movies. Used to like As Good as It
Gets, but that has run its course. Also, used 50 First Dates (but
I've seen it almost 50 times); Along Came Polly
I was a big fan of Xena and Mad About You.
But, for both movies and TV shows, I rarely watch much these days
Right now, it's U2, Sarah McLachlan, Suzanne Vega, Mumford &
Sons, and Sugarland.
Pizza and almost anything Italian.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
4. Fellow humans
5. Access to the internet!
6. Bed (to sleep in - no I don't sleep around)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This varies. Sometimes I think about such diverse biological topics
as what biologically makes up a thought to evolution.
Sometimes I think about things that surprise, such as the fact that
one girls I met on here had up had a percent match in the low 90's
and we did not connect well at all, whereas another girl had a
fairly low match -- in the low 70's -- and we connected very well.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Right now I don't see Friday nights to be all that different from
other nights. OVERNIGHT I am sleeping.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have, in the past mostly, struggled with anxiety and depression.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to! And, I might add, I am looking for someone who I think
of as a fairly nice person.
You are the kind of person who doesn't care that I don't have a
