Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a vaguely humanoid shaped being who desires things and stuff.
Mostly food and beer. Sometimes to ride my bike. Often to nap.
Art, gender and feminist lit/theory, science, and really bad puns
are my current passions in life. The moment I can do them all at
once, I will have achieved Ultimate Perfection (TM) and will have
no more need for this puny mortal form.
They/them pronouns, please.
For some aggravating reason, OKC only lets me be interested in Men,
Women, or Everyone; I've chosen "women" explicitly to dissuade cis
men contacting me. If you're queer, and not a man, you're someone
I'm interested in.
I'm currently in a non-monogamous relationship, so am open to
dating but am probably more interested in friends for now.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been in Portland for about 8 months now, and couldn't love it
more. I'm hoping to get into either Reed College or PSU next year
to finish my Bachelor's (Fine Arts probably, depending on what
programs are available/interest me).
I currently split my time between working part-time, drawing,
painting, crocheting, writing, and staring into the abyss
(Facebook). I've also recently picked up learning to design
websites, but with all the free time I've left for myself I manage
to read a bit for fun.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
stuff and things.
I have a problem where I get interesting in something, and then I
learn a bit about it (usually over the course of a week), and it's
a skill that I keep, sort of, but maybe never use again. Crocheting
has been my longest-term hobby so far. I can crochet the f*ck out
of a scarf.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my t-shirt. I like graphic tees, to an absurd degree.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
2. Peanut butter
4. The internet
5. My computer
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
feminism, gay rights, the interaction between my feminism and my
queer identity, why people are shitlords, why I love peanut butter
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've read the entire Twilight series. Voluntarily.
I haven't been in a serious, long-term relationship for most of my
adult life. I kind of want one.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you find something grammatically offensive in my profile
...you have any good book/movie/comic/music/food
...you are a nerd, geek, or generally pro-science kind of
...you want to chat (does this even need to be said? I mean,
theoretically, this is a social networking site, so that means a
great majority of the people on this site want to socialize, and
chatting is usually an accepted part of socializing, so this may
very well be redundant and I'm okay with that)
