Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Me in a nutshell: Nerdy, silly, mildly adventurous person who is a
bit unconventional and eccentric. Grad student after working for a
few years. I'm an INTJ who's good at coming across as an extrovert.
I really enjoy going to social events and working with people but
also value staying in and relaxing.
A few important things you should know:
1-I have a grammar fetish. The better your grammar/spelling, the
sexier I find you. Using things like "bc" instead of "because", "u"
rather than "you" or not using periods/commas are ladyboner killers
for me. (Not trying to say I have perfect grammar/spelling! I just
like when a basic amount of effort is put into messaging me)
2-I am a left-wing, feminist, sex-positive person
3-Sense of humour and lots of laughter are a must for people I am
friends with or date.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After doing the 9-5 thing for a few years in the non-profits I went
back to school to study things and stuff at the graduate level. I
just finished my masters degree, and have started a PhD. I also
work part-time at a shelter and as a teaching assistant.

Books: anything not academic? Vonnegut, Atwood, Rowling. Hitch
Hikers Guide to the Galaxy was a formative book in my teen
Shows: a pretty eclectic mix... Star Trek TNG, Mr. Selfridge,
Scandal, Bob's Burgers and the Walking Dead. I am probably too
obsessed with the Walking Dead.
Food: I am a foodie. I love trying new restaurants for food and
drinks. Favourite foods include: burritos, Ethiopian, chocolate. I
have an unabashed love for Chipotle.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Coffee, glasses, literacy, books, cuddling, comfortable bed.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Planning and organizing work/school stuff.
-Thinking about how awkward it would be if someone else heard the
silly things I say to my dog.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Likely drinking wine/beer with friends out or watching TV on the
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are open-minded, think critically, and have a great sense of
humour. Feminism and left-wing ideas don't scare you away, but
rather excite you.
