Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
How do you summarize all that you are? Ok. I have jokingly
described myself as an old Polish hippie grandma that wears red
lipstick. I think in life we are expected to categorize ourselves
and not have conflicting parts. I am an amalgamation of those
parts. I'm pretty comfortable in my own skin, I'm kind, giving, but
to a point. I can tell when I'm being given some b.s., and will
call a person out on it. I have a strong personality and am
stronger than I appear. But I'm also able to laugh at myself and
accept other people for who they are. I hope that sums it up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a nail technician. I love my job, and I'm good at what I
do. I hang with my kid, read, strive to constantly improve as a
person, cook, and do mostly domestic goddess type things.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dropping things. I'm also good at accidentally hurting myself. Its
a skill. Um, but seriously, I'm good at taking care of other
people, cooking, growing stuff, and so many other random things
like removing splinters and sniffing out bullshit.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes, my hair. The fact that I usually look lost in thought. I'm
frequently asked, "Do you work here?" Even when I clearly don't.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: memoirs. I love people's stories. I dig Bukowski, he was
such a crabby cool dude. Any Audre Lourde, Steinbeck, Vonnegut. I'm
currently tackling The Communist Manifesto just because, then on to
War and Peace. I'm a bit of a bookworm.
Music: jazz, jambands, pop, classic rock, Gaga, 90's rap, folk,
just about anything other than country. My Spotify is a ridiculous
mix of various styles.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My kid, my phone, mascara, a toothbrush, coffee, and a good knife
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be more resourceful, what I need to do tomorrow, that stupid
song stuck in my head..., why so many guys are thinking about a
zombie apocalypse. Really though, I like to immerse myself in a
topic I'm interested in and think my way through it. Nerd alert...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Working at the salon, then coming home to chill so I can have
sleepy time. Not opposed to going out, but there is a simple joy in
sitting on the couch and enjoying a bowl of cereal for dinner.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are an intelligent, hardworking, normal guy. If you're fairly
open-minded and creative. If you have all your teeth(yes, really),
if you know the difference between "there" and "their." If you're a
quasi-hipster/hippie that enjoys good food and coffee. If you've
ever listened to the Dead Milkmen as an awkward seventh grader. If
you think we would connect. If you're interested in more than a
short-term type of situation, and want to actually date, have a
