Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I moved into town about a year ago. I'm still in the market for
some new friends.
I'm pretty much just a huge music nerd. I'd be happy spending
pretty much everyday just listening to albums, looking for new
music, going to the record store and then going to hear a good band
play. I try to make it out to a shows at least a few times a week.
If you want to talk music, recommend a new band to me, or trade mix
tapes-I'm pretty much always willing to listen.
Otherwise, I really enjoy learning. I'm interested in a pretty wide
variety of things---history, culture, science, etc---and I get
pretty excited when I learn something new. I read a lot; I think
it's incredibly important to read as much as you can, and that kind
of ties into my love of learning. I also read a pretty wide variety
of things because I tend to pick up books at thrift stores and yard
sales for next to nothing. Right now I'm reading a book about
nuclear testing on people and after that I'm planning on reading an
oral Mats history, that Keith Richards bio everyone was talking
about a couple years ago, or a book about Freud's interpretations
of dreams. (This needs to be updated...will get to that
I can't remember the last time I was actually bored; there's so
much music to listen to and so many books to read. Not to mention,
there's always something worth doing in Nashville. I'm not sure I
could have ended up in a city I would have loved more.
Besides listening to music and reading, I love to write. On top of
the traditional stuff, I've had several blogs. I like to cook (not
to mention eating). I love rainy days. I'm usually a night owl. I
love to shop in thrift stores. I had a whole blog about thrift
store outfits and how to shop second hand. Rainy days are my
favorite. If it's raining, I'm automatically happy. And, I have two
cats, Gypsy and Jagger.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.

making you think I'm actually not 4'11 by wearing huge platforms.

I'm not sure. People always talk about my height or my hair. Or

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
going out or staying in. who knows. every night is friday night to
me. Lots of nights I go to shows. On the off chance that I don't,
I'm most likely cooking a good dinner and reading or listening to
records. But that's pretty much any night. I love my life, but I'm
ready to try some new things, meet some new people and have some
new (exciting) experiences.

I'm weirded out by men in v-necks.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-You're my best friend and I just don't know it yet.
-You think my cats might actually like you (Or you think I might
actually like you. That's important, too, if rare.)
-You're done waiting around and are ready to actually experience
something. Teach me something. Take me somewhere new. Have a
conversation with me.
