Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Things you should know about me:
I don't pay for this site so if you "like" me, I won't see it. Send
me a message. I almost always respond. That's not to say that I'm
the biggest pimp of okcupid. Rarely does a convo actually turn into
a date. Kind of wish that would change.
I identify as queer femme. I am a femme who likes other femmes.
Where are the other femmes? I want to know.
I am a feminist. This defines the way that I see myself and other
women. Consent and communication are huge for me.
I don't meet many date-able (read: queer) women in my day to day
existence. Hoping I can women here, even to just be friends. I
really need more queer friends.
I believe that "chemistry" is defined as complementing each other;
not being overly similar. As long as two people share the same
values and life goals, they can be as different as they want.
I answered most of these okcupid questions years ago and don't feel
like re-answering all of them. I've changed. People change. The
best way to get to know someone is to talk to them, right?
Chemistry is not mathematical.
I don't really understand this site. I don't want to be that cliche
person who bitches about the other women on okcupid but seriously
WHY DOES NO ONE EVER TALK TO EACH OTHER??? This is a dating site
right? People do join to meet people to go on dates with, right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a Master's Degree in theatre which means that I love
Mondays, because then I get to work again! I teach high school
theatre and direct, while also doing some set design and lighting
design on the side. If I don't so something creative I get cranky.
It's like those snickers commercials. I also do a lot of research
and I write scholarly articles. Sounds boring but I'm a huge
research nerd so I love it. I'm looking to pursue a ph.d. in the

without expecting anything in return. This is a rare skill indeed,
and worth mentioning. This is the main reason that I thrive in the
arts. Now if only my love life could catch up with my professional

Sometimes people don't know what to make of me when they first meet
me! I'm sure they notice my strong personality and my height!

Help your potential matches find common interests.
Ya know what? Why don't you ask me! People read about other
people's interests on online profiles and automatically eliminate
first date conversation, thinking that they already know that
person intimately. I mean can you really base a relationship on a
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(I'll leave the last one open)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I over think everything. I am a Gemini. I am an air sign. I exist
in my mind, in the clouds...
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Taking it easy. Hanging out with a friend or a small group of
friends. Maybe seeing a play in Philly.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been single for a long time so I may not have the best
perspective of how to be in a relationship with someone because
I've had to be on my own for so long. I'm not always the best at
opening up and I'm kind of "macho" with my feelings at first, but
it's usually because I'm not used to having someone to share them
