Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Well, I could be all "Oh, I want to find someone who 'gets' me and
blah, blah, blah..." But, I prefer a more "let's see if we have
things in common and go from there" approach. Because the idea that
opposites attract works with magnets, not people, and if you're the
opposite of me we will not get along. So with that in mind...
Things I do with my free time....
.... Play on the internet, watch movies, and read.. a lot. Go to
museums, plays.... My favorite is going to burlesque and drag
shows. I've been with a theater/burlesque group for a few years
now. I love the challenge and the fun of it. And I'm not stopping
anytime soon. So if you're not sex positive, not okay with gender
fluidity, and not okay with me taking clothes off in front of
strangers for fun... we will not get along. I'm not really into
sports except for roller derby and I've recently joined a
recreational derby league. The goal: don't break a hip. The last
few years I have been going to CONvergence! And I've also become
involved with the planning of said CON and also the Skepchickcon
track/party room. Science + scifi + cosplay x beer = FUN! I belong
to the local Barley's Angels chapter and enjoy touring/tasting all
the great MN beers, and just because there is no such thing as too
much beer I've started home brewing.
... Volunteering, dancing, random meetup.com-ing, groupon-ing,
going to concerts, and random other things. I'm raising golden
retriever and training him to (hopefully) be a service dog (STOP
... and, lastly, two words... BEER FEST!
What/Who am I looking for? I'm not really sure. The idea of "one
true love" seems to work only in romance novels and Lifetime
movies. I have not had a "serious" relationship for a very long
time and am very independent. So, if you want someone who lives
only for you... I will disappoint. I have a very full life. But,
while I love living and spending time on my own, it would be great
to find someone who shares my interests and to try new things with.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
For whatever reason I went from working part-time in a hospital to
full-time in home care. So, we'll see how that works out. I spend
time my son (he's 28) and cuddling with my pets. I've traveled and
have been to Europe a few times and random places around the US.
Life is way too short to never leave Minnesota.
I'm also determined to try one of every beer. Thanks Untappd App!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

That I look like, or remind them of, someone else they know.
But really... I'm short. I smile a lot. I like to laugh. I'm nicer
than my profile. When I talk I wave my hands around, a lot. I think
my humor tends to come off a bit bitchy in an online format..
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read, a lot.. I have yet to meet a zombie apocalypse book I
didn't like. In fact, I think my goal is to read every one ever
written. BRAINZZZZZZZZZ.. Lots of fiction, especially if it has a
bit of an edge to it. I like it dark, what can I say? Books about
science and skepticism, because I live in the 21st century and we
are figuring out how stuff works. Random books about history,
whether it be about the Roman Empire or about the civil rights
movement. Random biographies if I find the person/story
interesting. I've started on graphics too.. Why not? Life's too
short to be snobbish about my reading material.
I'm getting good use out of my Netflix account.... My favorite
movies are horror, whether a good old-fashioned slasher or a
monster movie. I prefer indie-type comedies over slapstick. Lots of
foreign films. And lots of random stuff television shows .. I would
have to say, though, that Park Chan-wook's vengeance trilogy is the
best thing put to film EVER! And Lars von Trier films are
Music... I'm open. I was a child of the 80's and loved the
bands, they will always have a special place in my heart. I'll
listen to thrash metal, soul/jazz, rap, whatever. If it speaks to
me, I'll listen. I also like classical music. I even like some
country, well folksy country anyways. I've been enjoying the local
And food.... I've been enjoying getting out and trying new
restaurants. There are a lot of great places to eat in the metro
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The trappings of 21st century technology and civilization,
skepticism, science, modern medicine (we're all here because of
antibiotics, anesthesia, and vaccines), secular democracy, my
electric blanket to snuggle with.... The dream that one day I'll
have magical superpowers and control the universe.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either working, on the computer, or doing something, or not.
Also, I've made it a goal to wear pants.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Whenever I drive by lottery billboards I daydream about what I'd do
with all that money. I have a tendency to leave cupboard doors
open... I hate talking on the phone with a white-hot passion. Text
messaging and email have saved me from a complete life of solitude.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... I sound interesting enough to you ...
I'm simply looking for someone to hang out with, get busy with, and
who won't make constant demands for my time. Is that really too
much to ask?
and... You're not in your 20's. You're not looking for a random
hook up. If you're religious, conservative, or have rigid gender
conformity standards we will not get along. If you smoke, that's a
deal breaker. And, I'll add, if you live out of state don't bother.
I'm not looking for a dirty pen pal. And not having a picture
either, it's an on-line dating site for goodness sakes. I know what
I want and it's an enormous pet peeve that guys don't bother to
read this or is it that they do and just don't care.
