Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
"Terrible eyesight, but great vision"
I like guns and feminism.
To that effect, I'm a complicated straight shooter who tends to be
verbose and highly secretive.
Wily, like a coyote.
I speak colloquially, but I read and write a lot. Call me politely
aggressive, or aggressively polite. I am a walking contradiction,
unless I'm lying down.
Although a little rough around the edges, age has rounded my
corners just a little bit. If you fall on me, you're more likely to
get a bruise, than a cut. More on bruises later.
I internet like a paranoid 80 year old grandmother.
I was kind of bummed when I was told that I'm less misanthropic
than my profile may indicate.
For enjoyment, I like trying to find things... yard sales,
scavenger hunts, that exact right word, record shopping, buried
pirate treasure, it doesn't really matter what... I crave the
I just finished the first draft of my first novel. I feel like a
douche putting this in my profile. So, I guess write me if you like
douches. However, I don't have any bathroom selfies of me flexing
or pictures of myself on a motorcycle or anything like that...
I have Southern Manners, although I'm a 4th generation native of
this town. I'm also a frantic typist. What this means in regards to
this site: lots of typos, and that I'll respond to anyone who is
engaging and intelligent. However, don't mistake my kindness and
propensity to chat with strangers for any sort of
Typically, I'm drawn to brilliantly bookish/weird/awkward, creative
women who possess introspective and introverted tendencies.
Unfortunate haircuts not required, but greatly appreciated. Take
that as you will.
I'm not for everybody. I know it, am ok with it, and sometimes even
revel in it. That said, I am willing, able, and interested in
making real and honest connections.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Container gardening. Thinking about shipping container houses,
containing clutter and chaos. Also: living outside the box.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...putting the "social" back in antisocial.
But i'm horrible at small talk. Seriously, really shitty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(good) Public transit
Nice mid-century furniture
My eastern block gas mask collection
Some little toy soldiers and / or model trains
An ever shrinking, but increasingly impressive record
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
...sustainability, and living within my means.
...the implied scarcity of love, and how we as a race are training
ourselves to be terrified of actual human interaction.
...class privilege, sex, and their intersections.
...the inevitability of death, and if immortality would ruin our
creative drive as a species.
...how to carefully craft my profile to keep squares away.
...among other deep stuffs.
Also, why did they get rid of activity partners?
That's mostly what I'm looking for. Activity partners.
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 got 1/2 a blowjob at Obama's victory speech in Grant Park... and
I didn't even vote for the man. #ThanksObama!
