Hello internet people of the world!
I come in search of internet pen pals, random conversations, and
interesting strangers. So if you just want to say 'hello' or 'I'm a
lizard, lets talk about space' that would be awesome. I'm not going
to meet up in real life. I'm not all that into reality. Because I'm
I don't really live in the UK. I live in Canada, but don't want to
be 'matched' with people there, I want to make faraway friends! So
I change where it says I live periodically.
I'm strange, but not really intentionally. I just exist without
filtering my personality because it makes me happy, and seems to
make other people happy too.
My basic philosophy is that if you try to be perfect you fail and
end up boring, but if you try to be special you might fail, but
will end up interesting. I think all people are interesting. I
don't necessarily like everyone I know, but I also don't hate
anyone, and I'm sure I don't understand anyone, although I like to
-I like to write and act and do art, go on swings, wander across
mountains, imagine things, create worlds in my mind.
-I like spontaneity, if you have a random thought while reading
this you might want to share, tell me. I enjoy honesty, no matter
what it's about
-I like the world. It has so many fun things, like volcanoes and
-I like standing outside in thunderstorms, I dislike the
rationality that makes me come inside when I'm told to.
-I leave notes of anonymous love to strangers on buses/benches
- I would like to live in the sky.
-I really really want to be a time traveller
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm existing in the gap between figuring out what I want to do and
waiting for it to happen. I want to be a writer and an artist and
to travel and do everything else as well. Right now I go to
university for creative writing which is a lovely way to be
productive while not actually working my way towards a credible
job. I want to be a poet and live in a tree house, so basically I'm
looking into ways this might happen and finding other ways to be
happy until it does.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I would say imagining. Other people have said poetry and other
creative writing, art, photography, wearing interesting clothes,
noticing and pointing out glittery things, and saying really odd
things without realizing it. I can also do a hand stand without
turning upside down (which sounds much cooler than it is, but let's
face it - it sounds pretty cool.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That would really depend on the situation. Here are some
-My hair is really long. It makes cool shadows.
-I spend unreasonably long hours swinging, often late at night,
even in the rain or blizzards
-I'm often dressed in rainbow clothes or as a pirate. I like
wearing things that go whoosh when I spin
-I spin around for no reason sometimes. A lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I like blue-ish green glowy music with spirals and sparks in it.
This is a bit hard to explain to people who don't have synesthesia.
Examples of stuff I like are: Radiohead, Dresden Dolls, Regina
Spektor, Belle and Sebastien, musicals, Loreena Mckenitt, The
Stars. And I also listen to spoken word poetry a lot.
Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, Hitchhicker's Guide to the
Galaxy, Ender's Game, Hexwood, The Chrysalids, the Tortall series,
Time Traveller's Wife, Ella Enchanted, The Golden Compass, Beauty,
Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, the flower fairy books (I like
the pictures)...generally I like sci fi and fantasy that is full of
ideas I never thought of.
Other: I also read xkcd and post secret.
Movies: Lord of the Rings, V for Vendetta, Serenity, Pirates of the
Carribean, St Trinians, Thumbelina
TV: Firefly, Doctor Who, other things from time to time
Food: Basically anything, I have favourites but I also like trying
new things. I love frozen yogurt. Right now I also really like
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-ideas to have and words to keep them with
-things that light up, are shiny, glittery, or translucent
-the pretty, pretty sky
-freedom to think and the ability to do so
-my shadow. I would really miss having a shadow, I think it's
I would say the ocean, but I do live without it despite really not
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-planning my future tree house/underwater castle
-wanting to be hit by lightning at some point in my life
(preferably not dying... I just really like storms)
-being a mermaid
-going to space
-How awesome it would be to be friends with River Tam or Doctor who
(or both! That would be the coolest spaceship party ever.)
-alternate possibilities for my life
-story ideas and worlds I've made up.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I can't think of anything witty to say here. So my next few friday
nights will be spent trying to think of something awesome to do on
friday nights that will make everyone think they need to rethink
whatever marginally less awesome thing they were doing on fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I can write in elvish faster than I can text. Literally. That's how
much nerdiness there is here. (And not even the productive kind of
nerdiness that means I can do crazy math in my head. I'm a nerdy
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Basically, if you want to, do it. If you're super shy, just say
"hi, I'm shy, talk to me." Just the fact that I don't know you
makes you interesting to me.
That being said, please no messages trying to convince me to meet
you and/or give you my number because I won't and I'll be sad about
wasting your time :(
Also, remember I don't come to the site often. If I don't reply it
isn't because you aren't interesting, it's because the sky is
pretty and I'm exploring space.
