Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How do I write about myself when I'm still trying to figure that
I've spent most of my life seeking an identity. I have been, in no
particular order, a pagan, a gamer nerd, a goth, and a hippie.
While I have enjoyed the sense of community these descriptors have
offered, they have all left me feeling like a child playing dress
I guess I would say that I am an interested person who is striving
to be interesting. There are many topics I dabble in: video games,
voluntary simplicity, photography, exercise,cooking, homebrewing,
and many more than I could name here. Yet, I lack the focus and
dedication to really become good at anything. I have a bad habit of
talking a lot with very little follow through that I am trying to
So, who am I? I'm in love with the world. I like good food, good
beer, and good conversation with friends. I play video games more
than I'd like. Probably the only thing I consistently do well is
write. I enjoy debate. I am rather science minded and will change
my opinions based on new evidence. I love travel.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working a job while I figure out my career. I'm pursuing
hobbies, though not to the extent that I'd like. I'll be moving to
Guam soon, so I would like to start writing again about my
experiences traveling around southeast Asia.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Honestly, I can't think of anything I'm REALLY good at. Decent
writer. Okay cook. Passable seamstress. I dabble in many things so
maybe the one thing I'm truly good at is being interested in the
world and wanting to try everything it has to offer.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have absolutely no idea. No one has ever told me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Favorite authors would have to be Tolkien, Neal Stephenson,
Neil Gamin, Terry Pratchett, Orson Scott Card, Charles Stross, and
Barry Hughart. I love sci-fi, historic fiction and alternative
histories and fantasy, but will read just about anything that is
recommended to me. The Omnivore's Dilemma and Fast Food Nation
changed my life.
Movies: I don't really watch movies but I love The Last Unicorn and
Dogma. I can also get into wire-fu flicks, especially bad
Music: I recently rediscovered my love of music. There isn't
anything I won't listen to. Lately I have fallen for bluegrass and
Americana, though punk will always hold a special place in my
TV Shows: I discovered recently at pub trivia that I apparently
watch way more TV than I thought. Right now I'm keeping up with
Archer, The League, Community, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dr Who,
Sherlock, and Cosmos (<3 Cosmos so much).
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Besides the basics that we all need to survive? Companionship? The
ability to learn new things?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm an introvert who spends WAY too much time up in her head. I
spend a lot of time thinking, period.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually at home with the husband either playing games or studying.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really have a thing for tall, thin nerd boys with no or well
maintained facial hair. Some people have a type and that is
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're looking for someone who is decently smart, interesting and a
little odd. I can guarantee you good conversation and fun times,
unless you're a party animal who loves to spend all of their time
at loud clubs. Then I'll probably bore you to tears.
I won't respond to a message that just says "Hi" or "sup". I've
written a lot, give me something to work with.
