Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
You know what I miss in life?
One of those conversations that lasts for hours, makes your throat
go hoarse, and leaves you wondering if you'll ever find anything to
say ever again.
And with the person, you do. It just falls into place. The ease,
the casual joy of even small moments together, the feeling of being
Since we all like to see those little flags fluttering about that
say, "yes, she is like me," here are some basic points of
commonality we may or may not share:
military brat, college grad, only just now starting to see where I
might be going, foodie, blogger, fan of old and musty books, cheese
enthusiast, muser, surprisingly spiritual
Other things you may or may not need to know about me:
physically, emotionally, and spiritually large; living with family
for now; INFJ
I was going to move away, because Kitsap can feel a little too
small. Then I drove back up from Vancouver, WA, saw the mountains
settling in for the evening behind the Narrows Bridge, and was done
thinking. I'm staying here. Now to save up for acreage!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finding different ways to blend my interests into income-generating
and life-sustaining opportunities.
Right now, I work as a substitute teacher and as an assistant
manager for a local farmers market. I eat really, really, really
good food and teach kids about kale whenever I can.
Conquering fears and sweating regularly.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Feeling things deeply
Abusing spice cupboards
Cutting carrots into little triangles for that rustic look
Finding very good deals on very strange things
Sitting quietly and patiently in international airports
Smiling at babies
Carrying too much stuff in hoodie pouches
Noticing the lighting
Spouting curious turns of phrase
Making things work
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I look like someone they know.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
As much as I love literature, music, food, and, well, all creative
endeavors, I find these specifics to be kind of insignificant. I
whiz past them when reading other profiles.
Isn't it way more amazing to hear your new "friend" play your
favorite song without them knowing anything about your musical
repertoire? Or to see a much-cherished tome on their shelf?
The only thing you need to know is that if your profile shows Milan
Kundera as the author of any of your favorite books, my heart will
do a pitter patter. Same with Saramago.
Even with that, I've said too much.

What happens in a meadow at dusk? Everything.
Music: Folksy, mandolin-filled songs that either
break your heart or make you sing along.
Last year's obsessive Pandora station was Ben Howard. This year's
will be Noah Gundersen.
Food: One plate of food constitutes thousands of
years of cultural, historical, evolutionary, and geological
interplay. It links all, and should be appreciated more.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A pen (and ideally, a piece of paper that was not once a grocery
Time to collect
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why I'm alive, and what I should do with that.
Whether or not I really could pop up a tiny house somewhere and
build a great garden.
What an ENTP is like.
The next project!
Jason Silva makes me feel less alone:
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Dogs, cats, internet, TV, ice cream, gardening, pajamas, craft
beer, loud laughter
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

A two-fer: I cut my own hair, and I meditate everyday.
I want to sing.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're kind of a philosopher lumberjack. You have a kind soul,
think deeply, and cherish the gift of life.
The thought of living in a handmade house, growing veggies, and
sharing your ideas of life and meaning sounds sublime.
You have a suggestion for something entertaining or amusing to do
in this general area (Kitsap and beyond).
You have an existential issue you'd like to process.
If you're a similarly wistful, heady, and floaty person who prefers
to examine, experience, and observe. Or, if you're a sturdy,
grounded person who can appreciate my own floatiness. If you're
someone open to following your own guide. If you're someone who
doesn't mind fermented food and a woman who's relentlessly
passionate albeit sometimes too often in her own mind.
