Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm compassionate, creative, and a little bit crazy. I lose my mind
if I don't have some sort of creative outlet (it can be as simple
as coloring). I derive my joy from bringing happiness to others. I
knit, I read, I goof around on the guitar, I've recently started
meditating but don't practice enough. I try to enjoy myself, even
when life makes it hard to.
Right now I'm focusing on myself, doing what I want to do.
Kayaking, hiking, reading, sleeping, dancing, getting back in
shape, learning to ride a bike, making guacamole, cooking, watching
movies, and having intelligent conversations and banter. I want to
try new things, so if you've got suggestions, I'm open to
Oh, and I love to travel. Addicted.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm temping as a paraprofessional. I love working with
children, but didn't find that out until I finished a bachelor's
degree in English and Women's Studies a few years ago. I adore
working in the public school system and I plan to go back to school
to get my masters in Early Childhood Education.... probably. I'd
always thought I'd teach high school English but quite honestly, I
don't think I have the self esteem for it. Children are honest, and
open, and heartless, and haven't been jaded by the world yet. Every
day I spend with them brings me more joy. Beyond that, I want to
travel as much as possible in what time I have. The world is huge,
and I don't think I'll ever see enough of it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening to people, and figuring out how they think. I'm a very
good friend, extremely loyal. Smart. A pretty decent writer. I feel
things very strongly and occasionally manage to express those
feelings. I'm incredibly passionate about many things. Ask me about
them and I'll tell you.

I am attracted to talented lyricists. Books: Anything by Jeannette
Winterson. If you like her, we'll have lots to talk about. I'm a
huge fantasy and sci-fi nerd from back in the day, Tolkien and
Douglas Adams and the like. John Fante, Ken Bruen, both beautiful
lyrical writers. I'm curretnly reading Michae Cunningham's A Home
At The End Of The World. Different genres appeal to me as long as
its excellent writing. Also many, many others. Suggest a book that
blows me away and I'm yours.
Movies: Love many; London Boulevard, Particles of Truth, A Home At
The End Of The World, Seven Psychopaths, Lord of the Rings, Harry
Potter, Walk on Water, Star Wars... impossible to name them
Shows: Doctor Who, 30 Rock, Modern Family, Game of Thrones,
Supernatural, Suits, Californication, Queer As Folk, The Office,

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 hanging out with my best friend or staying in with my cat,
netflix, and my books. Or babysitting, more often then not.

You don't mind a bit of a nerd.
If you like to try new things, think deep thoughts, and share them
with others. You need to be open minded in terms of sexuality,
identity, and feminism, as these things are dear to my heart and
the ones I love. I have a deep well of compassion, understanding,
and patience, and hope for someone who shares some of that. If you
find me interesting, there's no harm in giving things a try
I don't judge people based on what they do or know how to do, but
on what they're willing to try and to learn. I hope you'll do the
same for me.
I'm a bit bored and a bit lonely, and I'm just looking for someone
to get to know, hang out with, go on fun dates with, and see how
