Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a fun person with a sarcastic, slightly morbid sense of humor,
lots of curiosity about how things work, lousy attention span when
it comes to hobbies, a strong love for peace and quiet, and low
tolerance to people who treat others without respect. I'm still
blurry on the specifics of what my life is supposed to be
I know for a fact that I'm happy by the water. Unless it's very
cold. I go to bed early most nights and wake up - not necessarily
get up - early most days. I listen to a lot of music. I can't
believe there are people who don't read - I appreciate a good plot
more than many things people find exciting. I like listening to all
the little stories from your life. Fun! I'm rather low maintenance,
the downside of which may be that I'm also rather messy. If you
want a guarantee that your cup is clean - wash it yourself.
In truth I don't normally capitalize "I" and the first word in a
sentence. I do it here to appear more solid. Or something. Normally
I think text benefits little from capitalization of things other
than proper names.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wasting it away. What else is there to do?
Honestly, though, I'm just trying to live day by day without
disliking myself. This has started working pretty well by now, I'm
getting the hang of it. (You might guess from this that it hasn't
always been the case. Feel free to congratulate me, overcoming over
a decade of depression it a pretty awesome achievement. Haven't
come around to setting up any more major goals just yet, though.
Just being a good person on a daily basis will do for the time
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Organising. Planning for trips. Practical applications of math and
geometry. Knitting. Reading books til my eyes bleed. Doing things
with my hands. Keeping my cool when I really just want to tear
someone apart. Teaching others what I know. Learning stuff as I go.
Taking the lead when nobody wants to. Stretching.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Long, long hair if it's down... And if they see me every day, they
might notice I have a huge collection of earrings. Otherwise I have
no idea. I'm torn between not wanting to be noticed at all and
being a total diva.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I have rather eclectic tastes. I like both kitch and snobbish
things, and countless things inbetween. To name a single example of
each: Margaret Atwood, The Lion King, anything by Joss Whedon, The
Daily Show, HIM, sushi. (I'm intentionally listing few things here
cause I hardly ever have the patience to read through other
people's detailed lists in this section.)
Also, this doesn't ask about games, though it should. I play card
and board games with friends, and periodically I dive into the
World of Warcraft and stop having a life for a while. And I also
like comic books as a medium. I really want to be the Engineer from
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(Attention) (I can, but would rather not do without it.)
I did say I was low maintenance...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How miserable I am. How not to be miserable. What's for lunch.
Music. Being rich and famous. Being a superhero. Numbers. Knitting
projects and other crafts. Love. Earrings. How stuff can go very
wrong. Money and how to need it even less. How to say something in
Finnish. How to move to Canada and not starve or be thrown out.
Life, death and everything inbetween.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At my computer, solving puzzles while listening to music. If
there's some cool event out in the city, I may be there instead.
Sometimes playing card and board games with friends. Sometimes
reading. And in my WoW phase(s) - WoWing.
You will not find me clubbing or at sports games. And I won't be
watching TV either, since I don't even have a TV set.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have no trouble admitting to private things, but nothing
interesting comes to my mind right now.
Oh, hey! I have issues with alcohol. If you drink frequently, I
will probably deem you an alcoholic and be scared of you, cause I
have no idea what "normal" alcohol use is supposed to be like, and
you can't tell me that either, cause alcoholics live in
Also, I really don't like kids. I would only consider having my own
if there'd be a guarantee I wouldn't need to work, ever. Which is
unlikely to happen, so if you're looking for a pair of child
bearing hips to come along with your home budget contributor, go
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're brave enough to search for the awesomeness in me despite my
many shortcomings (nah, I'm great!). You're Finnish (or Canadian!
or both!) and are looking for a trophy wife. You wanna learn to
knit. You wanna spend tons of money taking me out to sushi. You
like Joss Whedon and want me to take you to the greatest costume
party ever. You wanna take pictures of my cats. Or if you simply
feel like it.
You shouldn't message me if your profile is empty. Also, messaging
and instant messaging are two very different things. I do not
respond to "hi".
Oh, BTW, smoking is an almost certain deal-braker for me. Not sure
how awesome you would need to be to be able to trump that. Sadly.
