Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Red-haired, grey-eyed, short.
I'm not good at these sorts of things. I'm both shy and really
reserved, so talking myself up is sort of excruciating. I'm pretty
positive, I've been assured I am funny once I'm comfortable with
people, I laugh a lot. I'm a geek and I like geeky things. I am a
life-long Star Wars fan. I love Lego and books. My favourite comic
book character is Tim Drake as Robin. I am easily distracted by
shiny things, sort of like a magpie.
I like hiking and going for walks. I strength train and do yoga,
and I don't own a car so I walk pretty much everywhere. I like
traveling, seeing things and places, history, rocks, and anything
that is really old. I majored in Archaeology and Medieval history.
I went to Paris last year with my best friend and fell in love with
it. I love cathedrals. My favourite artist is Mucha. I like to cook
and hate to do dishes.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was an accountant until this year, when I got laid off and
decided to move to Victoria and go back to University. So I'm in
the middle of a big, kind of scary life transition! New city, new
focus, new life. It's equal parts fun and terrifying!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
my job. Knitting. Spinning my own yarn. Writing (even though I'm
bad at filling out profiles).

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: too many to list. Barbara Hambly, Bujold, GRRM, Terry
Pratchett, LM Montgomery, Robin McKinley. I like non-fiction but
lean heavily toward SFF.
Movies: Star Wars, movies with big fuck-off explosions, period
dramas, independent films (but not the artsy kind that don't make
sense), Trainspotting, Indiana Jones. I don't watch a lot of movies
in the theatre.
TV Shows: The Big Bang Theory, Hoarders (I *know*, but it is very
inspirational when you need to clean), Mad Men, The Borgias, The
Walking Dead, Game of Thrones. Documentary style shows that are not
about WWII. Anything about ancient and/or medieval history or
archaeology, though sometimes just to laugh at how wrong they are.
DIY shows. I don't actually watch a lot of TV.
Music: I like a lot of music. My tastes are...eclectic. I like folk
music and rock. I don't like acid jazz or opera.
Food: chocolate, indian, mexican. I don't really like red meat.
Celery is the vegetable of the devil.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Unless I'm reading a book or concentrating really intently I
seriously have an attention span of about 30 seconds. So I think
about a lot of different stuff, all of the time.
...okay, that makes me sound like a flake. I'm not a flake, and I
don't have ADHD. I just think a lot, about a lot of things, and
unless I am really interested in something I will not give it 100%
of my attention. For example, I can't sit down and just watch tv; I
have to watch tv and knit.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm a home-body, so I'm usually at home, chatting with friends
online, reading or playing video games. (My best friend lives in
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I don't admit private things on the internet.
