Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
balance is key. though i'm an extremist when it comes to some
things, i mainly find that i'm
energetic without being obnoxious,
cerebral but not aloof,
open-minded but not gullible,
intellectual but not pretentious,
curious but not nosy.
okay, that last part isn't true. i'm totally nosy.
i'm an ENFP (or INFP) if that means anything to you. good
conversations are pretty much my favourite things. i'm a really
curious and passionate person, and find that i'm drawn to people
that are similar to me in this way, but i am drawn to people
dissimilar to me in most other ways. i like having common ground
with people, sure, but what i like even more is learning new things
and being exposed to different perspectives. i feel that most
relationships work best when there's less of an echoing and more of
a balancing out... i'm extremely accepting, and would love to be
exposed to new hobbies or art forms or experiences or places or
interests or lifestyles.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
right now, teaching second grade. i guess i also spend a
significant amount of time being active and gymming and hiking and
things... i'm pretty addicted to hot yoga while simultaneously
being apprehensive about american yoga culture. i like music and
coffee and drinking wine and cooking, i appreciate art and writing
and books and architecture and gardening, hosting parties and
having guests, learning and trying new things. i wish i spent more
time dancing, reading, watching plays. i also miss being a student
and am thinking about getting another degree.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
not taking slutty pictures of myself and putting them on a dating
getting the perfect gift.
being completely wrapped up in my thoughts so i'm oblivious to my
showering and being ready to go in less than 10 minutes.
being cheerful, open-minded, and accepting.
making people feel comfortable.
i'm really bad at obeying speed limits, remembering passwords,
playing pool, sitting still... trivia, or anything concerning
celebrities or pop culture whatsoever.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
probably that i'm nice? (though i kind of hate that word) nice
meaning cheerful or generous or positive or loving... something
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
favourites are things i mostly don't understand, because it seems
to me like eveything is in constant flux and so our favourites
would (or should?) fluctuate all the time... but if i had to
book: salinger- catcher in the rye. i also really like catch 22, a
prayer for owen meany, the crying of lot 49, and the great gatsby.
when it comes to fiction.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
that's a difficult one... in no particular order:
2. ice cold water and steamy hot showers
3. a winding mountain path
5. coffee (black (and for the taste, not the caffeine))
6. a good long drive
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
lots of things.. it fluctuates depending on what's going on and
what (and who) i surround myself with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i feel like things being "private" is really contingent on people
you know finding out.
that being said, there's not such thing as secrets from strangers
