Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I like books, being other people, finding life actors like myself.
People who are looking for mobility upwards, sideways and
backwards. I consider myself backwards compatible with most life
softwares and want to learn Linux.
I am interested in people who have great ideas or something
original to say and who make me laugh. As Oscar Wilde said, "If you
want to tell people the truth, make them laugh, otherwise they'll
I spend my little free time reading, writing, watching movies,
crocheting or on the internet invariably doing something or other.
I have studied literature, foreign languages, education and enjoy
academic discussions as well as the more mundane.
I quote a lot of people especially if I think their words are more
salient or beautiful than my own. As my friend Cryderman wrote in a
song, "I put you on a pedestal so I can't see/ It's the perfect
height for you to kick me in the teeth."
I write poetry and prose and have a few blogs for those interested
ilygirl.blogspot.com is my main poetry blog. It isn't the only
thing I do but a major part of my life. If artistic, passionate,
intense people aren't for you then we may not get along. If,
however, you find women who know their own minds and have a lot to
say interesting we may just hit it off. I am a good listener as
well as gregarious so I enjoy conversations with all sorts of
people on almost any topic
I could keep adding on here but I'd rather have a conversation with
someone than have them judge me by just my profile. I could write
many more things about myself but anyone worthy will be willing to
put in the time to chat and become friends first.
"AND I am aware of my own attempts to ESCAPE
into other people
AND places BECAUSE they feel like parts of me
AND I know all the things that you might say
BUT I only dance now lightly through other people
AND always follow the path which leads back to me."
I am eclectic, mysterious, and cacophonous
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working minimum-wage-ish and tutoring always looking for better
opportunities. Cooking occasionally, living with my stepchildren
p/t. Enjoying being married. Not looking for romantic entanglements
on OKCupid, just friends. Loving life, music, nature, my family,
friends and considering adopting a child or buying a puppy, not
sure which yet.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
reading, talking, embarrassing myself
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am tall. Yeah well ... I am also a fan of brightly coloured
clothing too ... so the height might be the second thing that
catches people's eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
paper, pen, shoes, my heart, my arrogance, my mind
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
everything -- I am slightly obsessive
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out on the town or asleep ...lol
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
private? what's that? ... maybe I am secretly judgmental towards
conservatives, people with bigoted/ignorant world views, racists,
homophobes, sexists and anyone who thinks I should be what they
tell me I guess.
