You may find yourself in a similar situation: pretty good at being single, and enjoying your satisfying life. Maybe you, too, are on OKC because it's a lazy weekend or an idle vacation. That "I should be in a relationship"-feeling isn't strong enough most of the time. Too much satisfying work to accomplish. But something has helped it along today.
Or maybe that's just me?
What I’m doing with my life
I do what I like, and I like what I do. Teaching kids and writing software. Very brainy work.
I’m really good at
Computers. Arts and crafts. Learning languages. Fixing broken things. Teaching (I've been told). Over-explaining things (I'm trying so hard to be concise on this profile).
The first things people usually notice about me
I look exactly like my photos. Seriously. Tall, skinny, curly hair. People tell me I look 5 to 10 years younger than I actually am.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Avocados get special mention. So does Hamilton the Musical (free to listen on Spotify).
The rest of it makes good conversation for later, so ask!
The six things I could never do without
Teaching, Computers, Science, Creative thinking, Success, Feedback from Unintentional Failure (because success will not teach me Humility or Wisdom).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Really nerdy hobbies. Side projects. My students. Spiritual awareness. Finding someone special in my life. The Future. Reality.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had a long OKCupid profile once, thousands of words long. Some joked that it was a 'novella'. I may share it if you are interested.
I try to be extremely open+honest with myself, and with others. It helps me grow. Ask about my story when you meet me. I want to find the time to ask about yours!
You should message me if
my profile seems interesting.
I'm probably not going to message you first. And certainly not if you are browsing anonymously. I'm not shy, just focused ... and hoping to get distracted by someone-I'm-not-expecting.
