Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I graduated from a University in the UK a couple years ago and have
a lot of friends overseas. I'm planning on going visiting at some
point in the not too distant future!! I like to be outside,
gardening and walking/ light hiking. I miss living in a place where
I can walk to anything I need. My stories are flamboyant,
exaggerated, loud... and very entertaining!! I love my family
(extended and otherwise) and enjoy spending time with them.
As far as dates go, I would much rather grab my telescope and go
star gazing, or do something creative than go to a trendy
restaurant. That said, every once in a while a fancy meal is VERY
nice... It's all about balance. I enjoy cooking, and I make a mean
roast, so if you like traditional Sunday dinner, message me!
I am NOT looking for someone who will be nice to me and take care
of me (although if I'm sick, that would be lovely) I am looking for
someone who will challenge me intellectually, argue with me if it
is warranted, support me when life's challenges get overwhelming,
be my partner in crime/ life/ eating Ben & Jerry's in bed while
watching movies, and let me do the same for them. I do not do
relationship drama... just as a matter of course.... And I love to
cuddle. Just saying.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working a few jobs at the moment with an eye toward completing a
PhD proposal and getting funding to do said PhD. GOD! I miss
academia SO MUCH!!! In the mean time I am doing as much theatre as
I can be cast in, or a get any job in. If I'm in a theatre, I am a
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Shakespeare. I'm also a pretty good singer. I have also been told
that I'm quite funny... not funny looking, just funny. ;) And I
give GREAT hugs. Several people have said so, and I don't think it
is something people usually comment on... so it must be true!!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It might be the laugh... If I laugh really hard I snort...
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: The Book Thief, Miss Marple and the Cormoran Strike
Novels... really, anything that is a mystery novel will lock me
down for a day or two.
Movie: anything old, but especially Roman Holiday
Show: Rizzoli and Isles, Castle, Bones... again with the mystery
Music: calming, slightly folksy stuff. Lisa Hannigan, Mumford and
Sons, Nick Drake etc.
Food: FOOD!! My Vietnamese flat-mate once gave me a candied chicken
foot, and I ate it. It was actually pretty good... mind you, that
was on one of those rare occasions when I was well and truly
sloshed... but I think if offered, I would try it again sober.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My WONDERFUL friends
Complete works of Shakespeare
Complete Sherlock Holmes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Arts and Crafts... I like to make pretty things.
I also spend a great deal of time thinking about "The Winter's
Tale" and Shakespeare's other romances...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
asleep, or watching TV, or out with one of my friends, trying
desperately to get in trouble and failing miserably. I am actually
just that inhibited.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to sit in my bathtub with the shower and overhead heater on
and watch documentaries. The shower head is over the bathtub...
just to clarify. It is like being in a warm rain; surprisingly
pleasant, and the most un-eco-friendly thing ever. I'm trying to
curb this particular eccentricity.
