Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love music and conversations about politics and gender issues! I
also have a super awesome partner with whom I have a polyamorous
relationship. Note that this is different from cheating. Also note
that if you are monogamous we can for sure be friends!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work with kids and teenagers with autism in a residential
research setting. I am studying Child and Family Development at
Western Michigan University.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking to new people! I love hearing what people have to say. I am
not so great at talking to people online, however. I prefer face to
face conversations in pretty casual locations.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My shaved head is what strangers generally comment on first. I have
heard everything from the most positive of comments to honestly
quite negative ones. Its a good way to weed out people who probably
aren't a good fit for me anyways!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love science fiction novels, local basement shows, and overly
serious movies. I love cooking and eating new types of food. My
favorite Kalamazoo restaurant is Saffron's. MMMMMMMM.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Good friends. Good food. Good conversations. Good music. Good
weather. And of course a sense of fulfillment in terms of the
impact I am having on the world around me.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Gender inequality and the political climate of our country. My
biggest "issue" that I care about recently is the strengthening of
local communities. I think that no matter how you think the world
should be changed, starting with yourself, your friends, and your
neighbors is the most positive first step. Organizations such as
DIT Kalamazoo and the Vine Neighborhood community garden have a lot
of respect from me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At a house show or hosting one of my own, as long as I'm not so
tired from work that I just want to curl up in bed with some
puzzles books and a good beer!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I haven't shaved my legs or armpits since the eighth grade! This is
another personal choice of mine that strangers often feel
completely comfortable passing judgement on. I find it so bizarre
that my hairy legs are apparently an open invitation for rude
comments about my decisions about my own body.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You enjoy interesting discussions and love music. I am interested
in talking to anyone as long as the first message isn't either
something negative or sexual propositions!
Also figured I should add this here so people won't get offended if
I do not respond. I am absolutely terrible at online conversations
and primarily or exclusively online relationships, so I am very
unlikely to respond to messages from people outside of Kalamazoo
and the directly surrounding areas, even if you seen super cool!
