My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
LIMITED TIME ONLY: my roommate just got a new kitten. She's a tiny ball of fur and cuddles and claws (the kitten, not my roommate), and is currently passed out while draped over my shoulder. You know you want to hang out with me more now.

So here's the low-down on OkCupid: it's a lot of fun, but only if you don't take it very seriously. I've found online dating to be an interesting social experiment. It's an fun opportunity to interact with people with whom I would probably never cross paths in "real life", and to learn more about how various people perceive and run their lives and relationships. I've found it a decent place to meet friends, especially if you're into eccentric people. It's kind of fun to use OkC like a magic 8 ball... send random people questions about assorted life decisions and see what they advise you. If you are actively trying to find a romantic partner, well, a dating site that you pay money for is probably a better bet. That would weed out the people who are not taking this seriously at all, which is probably most of OkC.

I moved to Vancouver to go to grad school and I find myself still here. I signed up to this site so that I could compare personality questions and tests with friends, help my male friends write non-creepy profiles, play matchmaker for my single friends (and sometimes stalk the profiles of people they have dates with), and procrastinate from doing schoolwork in the process. The procrastination became even more fun after OkC made me a moderator. I actually ended up in a relationship with someone I met on here, but I feel like that was a total fluke. I have also made several interesting friends.

So far the quiz and test results seem pretty accurate. So instead of me listing a bunch of descriptive words about myself here and sounding unnecessarily pretentious/narcissistic, just click on the "personality" tab and pretend I wrote all of those here. In addition, I'm active, chatty, pragmatic, an avid outdoorsman, and not very girly.

I want to change my username to "femme faytale", because that would be way cooler than my current username, but I don't want to pay money or start my account over from scratch.

I just discovered this website, and think that it's a great idea and should be the next big thing in online dating/socializing. You should all get accounts there so that it has a larger Vancouver contingent.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
It is a very rare person who has this question truly figured out. I am not one of those rare people. I graduated with a Master's in Natural Resource Management. Now I have a "grown-up" job where they expect me to show up every day (even on powder days, can you believe it?), and in the morning too, of all times! This "grown-up" thing isn't all it's cracked up to be....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
OkCupid moderation. I am at least 95% reliable at telling apart a picture of a user from a picture of a cat.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
"Hey, did you know you have a monkey around your neck?"
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I do indeed like all of these things, but as far as "favourites" go I'm pretty easy going. Whatever you have filled out in this category will probably have very little effect on whether you and I get along.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I really like food and travelling. Oh, you too? Also, sometimes staying at home and relaxing and sometimes going out with friends. You don't say? Wow, we have so much in common. You like baby animals too? We're practically twins! Sunny days? Soulmates!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Here are some of my OKCupid related thoughts:

-This is probably my favourite feature on OkCupid. If you haven't looked at this yet, you should.

-Making OkCupid stereotypes. So far all the guys are computer programmers and board game geeks and all the girls are vegetarian and into yoga.

-I want to contact some people that OKCupid ranks as being really high on my "enemy" ranking, just to see if I actually wouldn't get along with them.

-There seem to be a lot of polyamorous people on here. How common is polyamory in the general population?

-I wonder how many people are actually on this site to find friends.

-What is the difference between "friend %" and "match %"?
BEST EXPLANATION I'VE HEARD (courtesy of some-guy_):
""Do you like to be tied up during sex?" I put Yes. And I want my matches to say No - because I'm greedy and want them to be doing the tying. Somebody who puts "No" is my match because they are what I want. Somebody who puts "Yes" is my friend because we have so much in common."
***Also, here's a TED talk about the OkCupid matching algorithm.

-For people who are looking friends, it seems to be totally acceptable for straight girls to message other straight girls. I wonder if this is also true for guys? Straight guys: would you ever message another straight guy on OkC for strictly friend-related purposes?

-I wonder if guys read more into what a girl is looking for based on her profile pictures rather than her "looking for" section.

-Here's an article on the Vancouver dating scene, and the response article. I can't decide to what extent I agree with them. Thoughts?

-It seems to be common for people to use the same profile picture on OkC and facebook. Thoughts?
-Also, sub-question to above, what do you do when you see someone you know from school/work/personal life on OkC?

-Here's another fun OkC-related article. I'm not convinced that it was the mathematical algorithms that helped, rather than the 88 first dates.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
-attending seminars, doing coursework, sleeping...
-hopping onto a plane/bus/train bound somewhere awesome
-heading off to the wilderness for an exciting adventure
-checking out some Vancouver event
-hanging out with friends

Maybe giving out pointers on OkC profiles. Here are some general ones:
-Did you take a picture of yourself in your bathroom mirror using your cell phone? Yeah, don't do that.
-Does any of the "six things you can't do without" include oxygen, food, etc.? It's not as original as you think it is.
-Don't put up a profile picture of you with your ex-girlfriend.
Oh hey, here's a quiz that sums this all up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm a Groupon addict.

If that's not what you were looking for, I'm being pretty open with my question answers. You should probably check there. Although sometimes, when the questions only have one answer that any sane and normal person would pick, I pick the other answer just because I think it's funny. "Only say what the dictator wants!"
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you want to discuss something from the OkCupid Trends Blog.

...you are my nemesis. ***Update: The highest enemy percentage of someone who has messaged me currently stands at 64%!***

...you want to ask me for random life advice.

...you want to join me in not taking OkC very seriously.

Messages I tend not to reply to:
-"Never read your profile, but you're cute. We should talk."
-messages assuring me that although you have nothing interesting to say in a message, you have oodles of interesting things to say if I meet you in person
-"Sex plz?"

Messages I reply to:
-Anything that indicates that you might have actually looked at my profile.
-I've taken up the general policy of not sending the first message to people who OkC lists as responding "very selectively" (I'm looking at you, ladies). It just doesn't seem like an efficient use of time. If you are the "very selective" type, you can always send me a message. I'm pretty sure OkC still lists me as "replies often".
