My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm afraid I sometimes get in a bit over my head, allowing my imagination to lead when my reason might object. That's why I have a semi-bi-coastal life, meaning a 180-year old house (no plumbing or electricity) in the Champlain Valley of NY that spoke to me from behind a veil of trees and weeds. I spend a few weeks to a few months there summers, figuring out what do next. Last summer it was repairing the sheathing and siding. I've learned a few things about slinging a hammer, but I've sworn off table saws...
On the other hand, I'm a big reader and I write stories sometimes, mostly true.
I'm attracted to warm-hearted intellectuals, gay-seeming straight men, and wry humor, preferably in combination. I'm an ENFP.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm in grad school and on the side I'm taking classes to get certified to teach English to speakers of other languages. I am also very slowly restoring that 19th century house. And I really mean preserving more than restoring, definitely not remodeling or modernizing.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at talking to people and representing them fairly when I write about them. I'm an enchanting conversationalist and I'm good at taking the back roads. I like to find unlikely solutions and cool objects and if you want to know something, I'll happily do the research.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably whatever expression's on my face. That, and my curls.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read all the time. Right now it's Hemingway's short stories, Faulkner, and Henry James. I'm also buried in books about early anthropology and 19th century journalism, theosophy, and American Indians.
Recent TV: Deadwood, Lie to Me, Dexter, and Downton Abbey.
Recent Movies: Moonrise Kingdom, Beasts of the Southern Wild, A Late Quartet.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Hot Baths
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I'm thinking a lot about how history is constructed, who or what got trampled or is left unremembered.
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!
The idea of having my belly button poked is as appealing as having my eyeball poked.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you're smart and warm and offbeat, even goofy, with a knack for the English language and possibly introverted, don't be shy. I'd love to meet someone handy and artistic who can teach me a thing or two or someone sporty and fun who'd enjoy taking me and my dog on adventures.
