Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
So, probably the most important thing to mention first is that I'm
transgender (and MTF, just to be clear). I know that might be a
stumbling block for some of you, and I totally understand that,
but, since OK Cupid doesn't have any options outside of the gender
binary, I'm a bit stuck with this. (Also, that means that I'm
unlikely to send the first message, so, keep that in mind.)
Anyway, what that means for you is that if you see me out on the
street, you'd just think I'm a guy, unless you noticed my legs, and
thought 'oh, there's another one of those guys that shaves his
legs'. But, that's not really who I am, or who I'm going to
As for the other stuff - I'm from the boundary between the Midwest
and the South, and have quirks and charms associated with both
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been collecting degrees, and now I'm trying to find someone to
hire me who doesn't think I'm overeducated. Because I am.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Telling really corny jokes about polar bears.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
It's such a cliché, but I can quote just about any line from
Arrested Development. I don't watch much other than that, except
for Community and Archer religiously. Also, I tend to base my
schedule around Jeopardy!, and will apologize in advance to the
friend I always watch it with (over gchat) if I know I won't be
able to watch that evening.
As for music, I'm in love with Belle and Sebastian, but I judge
myself for that from time to time. I've also come out to Johnny
Cash's grave, have gotten into Gillian Welch recently because I had
a crush on a woman who works for her, and stalked Ben Folds when I
was living in Nashville. I'd also rather listen to the "This
American Life" podcast while driving than music, anyway.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Passports (the one from the Department of State for going abroad,
and the National Park one for internal travel).
Haribo gummi bears.
Two other things to be determined at a later date.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to go exploring. I'm always looking for people to go to
new places. And I love it more if we can make fun of the place
after leaving it. I'm thinking a road trip to the unbuilt Noah's
Ark in Maryland for starters.
