Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a cheerful, vegetarian, feminist, and often sarcastic graduate
student in Detroit, and I spend a lot of time working or studying
(or more accurately, lately, procrastinating). I like to loaf
around, hang out with friends, play games, watch tv, and read, in
my free time. I'm in two awesome and polyamorous relationships (one
I'm busier than I like to admit, which makes me a bit flakey.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
School, more school, science, video games, reading, and fawning
over my cats.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Mastering games like clicker heroes or tower defense flash games.
Talking a little bit too much about med school or science. Multiple
choice tests. Sentence fragments (apparently).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Big hipstery glasses, I'm sure. I still notice them first when I
look in the mirror. I'm real happy with how cute and functional
they are, at the same time. Go glasses.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'll read almost anything, and I like most of what I read. I like
sci-fi, fantasy, general fiction, and nonfiction. My favorite books
are the ones that I can't predict; I like authors that can keep a
step ahead of the reader or that do things a little bit
unconventionally, and I am SO disappointed by formulaic fantasy :-/
I like taking recommendations from friends and looking at lists of
award-winning books and just picking one from a genre that I don't
often read. You can find some real gems that way. I used to dislike
short stories, but now I guess I'm into them.
I watch too much tv, and most of it isn't particularly good. My
favorite show is Firefly, but that might be just because they
didn't stick around long enough to get bad. I lean towards
electronica, and I'm mildly embarrassed about how much I like
trashy pop music. As for foods, if it has mushrooms or garlic, I'm
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A good sundress
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People, whatever classes I'm currently taking, the books I'm
reading, food, politics, ethics, science, medicine, whether or not
I'm a total failure at any of the above, cute animals (I can't even
handle them, they just get me, every time), the internet, whatever
exciting things I have coming up, and crafts I'd like to do but
will never actually get around to.
Also, the ways in which the internet differs from real life; like,
do people really describe each other as "fit?" So many people on
here are "fit" or are looking for someone who is "fit." It's weird.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Staying in with a good book or video games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I see someone's profile that lists a bunch of books I like, I
totally read other books they listed, using them as my personal
book recommendation service. Without telling them.
Also, I'm way weirder in person.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you like board games or league or biking or running, and need more
people to do those with, or want to bike with me to Belle Isle for
a picnic. Or, if you're a reasonable and decent human being that
treats the people around you well and thinks we have something in
Ooh, or, you should message me if you know when I can pet all of
the cute animals everyone has in their pictures. Jeez. I can't
handle them. I need some petting farm/exotic animal
preserve/whatever it is in my life, apparently.
My social life tends to hover around about where I want the ceiling
to be, so if I'm not interested in meeting you, don't be surprised.
I don't respond to everyone that messages me, like most people on
this site. Good ways to get into the no-response category are to
just say "hey" or message me to tell me you think I look good.
