Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm the classic case of an outgoing introvert. I'm a fiercely loyal
friend, but I am awkward in social situations involving people I
don't know. I hope that someone will find my introverted side
endearing. I love going out, but I also love staying in and
watching Netflix until it gives me the "Are you still watching?"
message (I usually am). Also I like nerdy things. I'm obsessed with
the MCU, Star Wars, Harry Potter...and I really enjoy reading,
which I don't see as nerdy, but a lot of people do. If you are not
afraid to laugh at potentially offensive or silly things with me,
and yet can have a serious conversation too, we will get along
well. If you message me "hey gurl want 2 txt," I probably won't
respond, because...grammar. Come on, at least pretend you took an
English class at some point in your life.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach middle schoolers how to make beautiful sounds on
instruments...at least, that's the goal. I'm also a freelance
musician in West Michigan, mostly playing orchestra and pit gigs. I
want to use my summers off to travel the world (preferably the UK,
Ireland, and Scandanavia)...after I finish my masters degree.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm good at listening. Some people mistake me for being a quiet
person because of this. I'm also good at memorizing useless
information and self-deprecating humor.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
-I laugh a lot!
-I am very passionate about my career.
-I don't get offended easily.
-I tend to overwork myself.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
This is a tough one...I can do some serious damage on
thriftbooks.com...Harry Potter is my favorite book series of all
Stuff I watch on TV: HIMYM, Friends, Whose Line, Agents of
S.H.I.E.L.D. (I'm super into the Marvel cinematic universe, and
holy crap...INHUMANS!!!), Parks and Recreation, and HGTV when
nothing else is on.
I am definitely a music person. I love Ben Folds, Mumford &
Sons, Maroon 5, Fun...and lots of band music. Also, I've been on a
40's Jazz kick lately. I think all music has some sort of value,
even if I don't necessarily enjoy listening to it.
I like to try new foods. I really enjoy Thai food and sushi, and I
love (trying) to cook things!
Also, I like beer. A lot.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Glasses. I despise contacts.
-My sense of hearing. It's pretty important for my job.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I either think about the answers to really odd questions (like, if
I move away from Michigan, can I still show people where I live on
my hand?) or the future. I'm always trying to figure out what the
next step is in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I'm out with my friends, trying to find the best hole-in-the-wall
places in Grand Rapids, watching my favorite local rock band,
playing a gig somewhere, or relaxing at home watching Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I feel like the fact that I'm on here is embarrassing enough.
People say there's no stigma, but why do I feel so weird?
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-If you have something to say.
-If you think you can make me laugh.
-If you know what my username means (no, my name isn't Jane).
-If you don't mind coaxing an introvert out of her shell. Promise
I'm a riot once I get to know you!
