Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an introvert
so it can take me a while to open up to new people. Once I feel
comfortable around someone, I'm pretty friendly and I've been
mistaken for an extrovert once in a while.
I am constantly trying to learn new things and improve myself. I
would like to find a guy who is also passionate about
learning/exploring new things, places, and ideas. The subject
matter doesn't really matter, just the enthusiasm and willingness
to discuss and share things together. By no means does this mean we
have to share/do every activity together. I actually tend to be on
the independent side and will need time by myself. I would support
and encourage a guy to have time for himself too.
I'm in my head a lot and can sometimes take myself too seriously so
I would like to find someone who can make me laugh. I love when a
guy can say something that surprises a laugh out of me and when I
can do the same for him too. To me there's (almost) nothing worse
than making a joke and having someone stare back at me with a blank
expression. I tend to gravitate toward silly/goofy/random, witty,
and sometimes sarcastic humor.
Just a note, I tend to miss nuances and social cues so it's
probably best to be direct with me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My job involves engineering and other left-brained activities. So
outside of work I tend to enjoy right-brained activities,
especially if it involves arts and crafts
. I love to
but I find I tend to get bored after a while so I move on to
something else. I love to learn and try new things
. In the past I've
been interested in knitting, scrapbooking, card making, and paper
cut art. Right now I'm really getting into glass fusion and
I also enjoy puzzles
, and card games
. I used to play a low
with some friends before we graduated and they all moved out of
town. About once a month a bunch of my girlfriends get together and
have a Cards Against Humanity game night. I almost never win but I
don't care because we laugh so hard every time we play.
I tend to watch a lot of television
, and I'll watch movies
occasionally. I mostly like comedies
(The Big Bang Theory
, The Middle
) and I'll sometimes watch dramas, especially if they
are science fiction based (Once Upon a Time
, Person of
I like to travel
and have been to Europe, Asia, and South America. I'd like to see
all 50 states but I only have been to 13 so far. I'm planning a
trip to Texas next summer so that number should increase in the
near future :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

The first things people usually notice about me

I'm vertically challenged. I also take a long time to warm up to
new people, but am very friendly once I do.

I love comedies
the quirkier, the better! (TV: Arrested Development, The Big Bang
Theory, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Movies: Mallrats, Spaceballs, The
Princess Bride, Back to the Future) Recently I've been getting into
dramas too: Once Upon a Time, Scorpion, and Person of Interest.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I had to think about this for a while to weed out the obvious
things (food, water, shelter, air, family, friends, etc) and create
a list that reflects my preferences. Here they are, in no
- a comfy chair (or even better, multiple comfy chairs)
- television with expanded channels (not premium but I need more
than just network tv)
- radio (internet radio is included, basically I need access to
- computer with internet connection (should this be two
- online banking (okay, I know this sounds kind of strange but hear
me out! I'm not always the best at keeping track of things so I
love that my bills get paid as they are due. I'm pretty good at
keeping an eye on things so I'm not overcharged.)
- chocolate (I decided to keep the last spot for my favorite food
and I'm not sure that I nailed it. Runners up included: Pizza,
popcorn, french fries, cookies, and brownies. This answer could
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Traveling. How long will it take me to save for my next trip, where
I will go, and if I have enough vacation time. I value my time off
so much I take a pay cut every paycheck in exchange for more time
off from work.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually I'm at home relaxing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have horrible peripheral vision. My coworkers sometimes like to
mess with me by seeing how long it takes before I notice they are
in my cube. Sometimes I'll look up at or down from my computer and
jump in my seat because someone is standing within 2 feet of me and
I did not see them enter my cubicle.
