Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
After being on this site for a while, I have realized that finding
a connection with another person isn't about WHAT we do, but HOW we
do it. Reading about my hobbies won't tell you anything about how
we will get along. I am not looking for pen pals. Although I do
enjoy long discussions about everything under the sun, I feel empty
when at the end of it all in am sitting alone in front of my
computer. So if you are interested in chatting, LET'S MEET UP.
YEAH, like in the flesh. I have found that I learn more about
people in the first two minutes of an encounter than in hours of
internet small talk. If this approach suits you, send me a message
about when and where we can meet up.
With that said, here is the WHAT: runner, calligrapher, drawer,
listener, lifelong learner.
And more importantly the HOW: freely, silly, anti-conformist, I
fully commit & give 100% to everything I do (which I've found
results in "talent"), open-minded, self-critical, overachiever,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After working in the pharmaceutical industry for a year after
graduating from college, I realized I hated it, so I quit, moved
back to Oregon from Massachusetts, and decided to go back to school
to become a nurse [in progress...].
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
My most valuable quality is that I am an impeccable listener. In my
opinion, listening is seriously underrated in American culture...
But that's a conversation for another time.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A blanket for snuggling.
My journal for doodling and writing.
Freshly cut grass for smelling and dancing around barefoot.
Music that perfectly fits my mood for the moment.
Post-it notes for lists... Lots and lots of lists.
Moments during intense downpours when the sun shines through the
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually having a hot date with my pillow.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
To be honest, I'm not sure exactly what I'm looking for, but I
certainly know what I'm not looking for. So, you should
NOT message me if...
-you use "words" like "u" and "r"
-you want to "trade pix" (I won't, I guarantee it)
-you run out of things to say beyond "how are you"
-you feel the need to call me demeaning names, like "baby,"
"sweetheart," "cutie," etc.
