My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I really wish OkCupid had an "it's complicated" option. I'm not really in a "relationship," but I'm not really single either.

Shy extrovert, nerd in the old-fashioned sense, radical politics, saving the world from itself.

If you live "in the bay" or you're "from the bay," you'd better be either a sea captain or a mermaid.

Note: there is about an 80% higher chance of me being into you if you happen to be interacting with at least one kitten/bunny/puppy/baby goat/other unspecified animal in at least one of your pictures. I can't help it.

Creepers, assholes, and idiots, be prepared to be mocked by strangers on Twitter.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
All the school. All of it, all the time.
Learning how to make my body move through space in new and interesting ways.
Stretching.
Working.
Singing songs that your grandmother loves.
Hugging all the cats. And the dogs.
Getting angry on the Internet.
Advocating for my rights in my chosen profession.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Drawing graphs (economics is 80% drawing graphs, and 20% having unpopular opinions).
Balance.
Bending myself into interesting shapes.
Remembering song lyrics.
Remembering faces.
Taking care of people.
Making people look pretty/interesting/weird.
Cat whispering.
Confidence.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Babies: oooooh shiny (while grabbing nose ring)!
Grownups: wow, you're tall.
Old ladies: cool hair
Creepy dudes: damn girl you are an amazon goddess fine thick real woman blah blah blah barf where you goin bitch I'm just tryin to talk to you oh what so you're too good for me well fuck you too then. One guy the other day looked me up & down real slow & said "you keep on making big beautiful." I don't even know where to start.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll pick just one from each category:

Margaret Atwood,
Children of Men,
Star Trek (all of them, but mostly DS9),
Creepily slowed-down remixes of 90s R&B,
The Niño Pobre sandwich at Sol Food.

Also, pretty much anything produced by the costume drama wing of the BBC.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My cat, or animals in general
Glasses
Dancing shoes
Foam roller
My trusty scientific calculator
My mom
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be happily living in Europe, Canada, Britain, New Zealand,or Australia raising adorable multilingual children & pets, totally killing it in the economic research & sex worker rights fields, & generally beating the shit out of people's expectations for a former dropout & unapologetic whore within 10 years or so.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working. Doing homework. Rehearsal. Eating oysters & drinking champagne. Drinking homemade beer at a house show. Cuddling with my cat watching Star Trek. Dancing my ass off. Any or all of the above.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an uneasy relationship with my own heterosexuality.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Read this first: http://christianbvega.blogspot.com/2013/04/how-to-date-sex-worker.html

Grownups, sex workers, allies, queers, scientists, and musicians, move to the front of the line.

Also, an inborn lack of jealousy is good.

My types: Viking, Alien, Professor, Nice Jewish Boy™

I am predisposed toward beards and moustaches, but extremely anti-goatee, chinstrap, and soul patch. Van Dykes are acceptable, as are muttonchops (friendly or otherwise).

If you can teach me a new dance.

If you have an EU or commonwealth passport, and you're not afraid to use it.

Also, I am not your unicorn, nor am I your manic pixie dream girl
fantasy savior. Save that shit for your therapist, or another
well-paid professional. I am not interested in joining anyone's harem, either. And no cults, please.
