The Novella: I'm not the type of girl to get all squeamish at the prospect of gutting a fish or all weak in the knees after a hard crash from my mountain bike....
Well, crap, the issue I find with creating a profile is that it's simply impossible to find a good stage to represent myself from without speaking from a soap box. Even if I devoted myself to hours of editing and writing and produced a novel, you still wouldn't know the person that I am. Sure, you'd understand the gist of me, but certainly not the nuances.
Further, how can I know others from only a few paragraphs? I know that as honest as I attempt to be in a profile, that still I've invested time in tailoring it to seem more approachable. But the thing about people is, is that we're messy and imperfect and dynamic. That's what I love about meeting new people, is the chance to get to know the unplanned moments and the unedited versions of people.
So, this entire profile is just a summary of a whole person. You'll get the gist.
