Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My favorite thing to do is laugh. I kid ye not. That said, I do
some other stuff on occasion, such as crafting art projects,
reading non-fiction books about stuff I want to learn, hanging out
with friends, and being outside. Math and art are my favorite
things, especially in partnership.
I think work doesn't have to be miserable, and truly believe that
both work done well and learning are FUN activities. One of my life
goals is to find a way to share that belief with many people.
At heart I'm a simple child - I love to play! A sport, a game,
being a goofball, rollerskating, you name it. All-in-all, I'm a
joyful little nerd who loves her life, even when it could be
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm a software engineer at a wonderful company. Aside from that I
like being outdoors, reading, hanging with friends, and pursuing
hobbies (they change often).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Talking to strangers. Laughing to myself. Laughing at myself.
Starting (not finishing) various projects. Being a perfectionist.
Quitting stuff I don't like. Finding fun things to do. Observing
boring things in a funny way (I think so, at least).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm quite short... also I smile too much and look like I'm about
twelve years old or something. Whatever it is, I must be easily
approachable. People notice that, and approach me - often.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I am frequently made fun of by friends for claiming everything to
be 'my favorite,' one thing at a time. Anyway, the list:
The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran - unbearably beautiful.
Anna Karenina and War & Peace - Tolstoy crafts the most
believable characters I've ever read. I don't understand how he
Euclid's Elements. I'm not kidding. I LOVE me some math. Especially
straight up, original geometry in it's purest.
Harold and the Purple Crayon
Shrek - Donkey is the best goddamn character ever invented.
Wall-E - I was Wall-E for Halloween a few years back and made an
excellent costume, if I do say so myself, and I really do.
Little Miss Sunshine
40 Year Old Virgin (yep, love it)
TV: not my thing, but The Office and Modern Family cheer me.
Paul Simon, Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Dispatch, Mumford & Sons,
As for food, honey badger don't give a shit: I will eat whatever is
free-est and easiest, preferably not spoiled.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
folks I love
heater (I get cold easily - I may perhaps be a species of lizard or
insect... too soon to tell, really)
bicycle (am temporarily without mine, and it makes me sour)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Other people. I like them. I worry about strangers sometimes. And I
laugh at little kids every time I see them. They are so damn cute -
even when they are fucking annoying. I want some someday, but no
time soon, thanks.
I also spend a lot (too much) time thinking about what I'm doing
and why and how I can do things better and do more things and be
better and more productive and smarter and kinder and such. I ought
to spend more time thinking about how freakin' cool I am. Ha! more
AND I think about project ideas a lot. That I enjoy. Art projects
or app ideas, mostly.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Low key. I'm often tired by Friday. I like to have a quiet dinner,
post-week beer, ice cream and then read until an early
Saturday evenings I like to be with friends, drinking beer, playing
board games, etc.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Ha! If only there were ONE most private thing: clearly, I have few
secrets of my own... not any really. Ask and I'll tell. In fact,
don't ask - I'll tell anyway.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You'd like to meet for coffee or beer. I'm here to meet people -
and not JUST potential mates/dates. As I said, I like meeting
people, and I enjoy making new friends. HOWEVER, this is 'the
internet' and it's 'very dangerous' and ... my time is somewhat
limited (quite limited - I keep busy), so I will likely not meet
everyone that messages me. Sorry.
Also, if your message says nothing or next to nothing, there's just
little incentive for me to respond. If you comment on something
I've written - especially something that struck you as familiar or
interesting or boring or SOMETHING - then I'll have a great way to
begin a response. You know how it goes.
Regardless, if you've made it this far through my profile, I'm
impressed. Great job! Thanks for the effort. Double points! Cheers.
