Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a quiet person, but that doesn't mean I'm always shy! When
things get going, I am be quite loud (for me, anyway) and make all
sorts of wacky jokes. Definitely I need some time around people to
warm up, but I'm not taciturn. I enjoy time with other people, as
long as these people also have the capacity to be quiet sometimes.
I am willing to head out to parties occasionally, but I would
prefer to have more quiet one-on-one or small group
I would describe myself as intellectual and artistic (I hope!). I
like reading and talking about books very much. I think it is an
enjoyable and intellectually stimulating activity. I also like
discussing characters in a TV show. The way I see these activities,
it's a little like gossiping, but about fictional characters and
more interesting subjects than the latest purchase at Saks. I also
enjoy sketching people. I am very good at pencil portraiture. I am
absolutely awful at watercolors, though. I could stare at
Botticelli's and Caravaggio's works all day. I could also chat
about George Eliot's works or the wonder of fractals and computer
chips. I'm up for discussion about anything, as long as the person
is passionate about what he likes.
I love baking and cooking and will happily spend time with anyone
doing those two activities. I like spending time at home or at
friends doing fun artsy or relaxing activities. Mainly I'm a
laid-back sort of person.
I'm also responsible: I keep sober even at a party. You won't find
me engaging in suspicious activities in a dark corner or sneaking
behind someone's back.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am definitely studying like crazy for classes but I'm also making
time to have fun with friends and laugh. I'm pursuing a
Biopsychology major and intend to be a physical therapist.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
English. I rock at essays and I love writing stories.
Waking up on time! But only with an alarm clock. Does that still
Running up and down mountains. I kid thee not.
Apparently math and science? I don't hate them, but I'd rather
spend my time doing something else, like reading Tolstoy.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
1) Short hair! She must be a dyke! Ha--no, I just think short hair
is more convenient.
2) Those Asian eyes. Can't forget 'em.
3) My smile. I've always been told I have a nice smile.
4) My pug face and nose wrinkle. :D
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Crime and Punishment, Anna Karenina, Jane Eyre, Changing,
and the Mates, Dates series. Heavy stuff, I know!
Movies: I don't have time to watch a lot of movies, but I tend to
like arthouse films with provocative plots. Really, I like movies
that are fun but make me think.
TV shows: Fringe, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey, George
Gently...anything British or with a good plot. Guilty pleasures
include Food Network and What Not To Wear.
Music: I like symphonic metal, musical soundtracks, and oldies the
best, but I also listen to the occasional pop song. Just so I'm not
clueless when a song comes on at a party.
Food: Chinese, Turkish, American (occasionally), Latin American,
Thai... Pretty much anything!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
family and friends and life, but also why laundry machines chew up
socks. There's gotta be a monster in there somewhere!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
laughing my butt off with friends, or if it's crunch time, buried
in books. Or maybe just hanging out at a cafe, crowd-watching and
enjoying a leisurely cup of coffee.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I sat down at the wrong table in a restaurant and the waitress had
to boot me out and direct me to the correct table. Embarrassing!

You're interested in spending a laid-back evening at the movies,
watching TV, doing some jogging together, or chatting about books,
food, cooking/baking, movies, and life in general. If you're
