Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a fan of warm days, college-ruled notebook paper, and
grapefruit San Pellegrino. In middle school, I taught myself a
small amount of HTML so that I could create and then abandon a
Backstreet Boys webpage. I have mastered the three chords necessary
to accompany myself on the ukulele as I cover top 40 hits.
I have a crippling addiction to lip balm.
I prefer biscuits to English muffins. I love the smell of citrus
fruits. I don’t think there’s such a thing as “too many” pairs of
socks. I struggle daily to remember to water my plants, but have no
problem remembering birthdays (including family members’ dogs’
birthdays). I am a huge fan of the Oxford comma.
I am terrible at watercolor painting. I have pretty decent
handwriting unless I’m in a hurry. I love grocery shopping and
don’t mind waiting in a long line to check out.
I talk to strangers in hallways, bathrooms, elevators, and in line
at the post office.
I have resisted learning how to play chess because I’m afraid I
will be so terrible at it that my self esteem will be forever
crushed. I am very good at Pictionary, both as a guesser and as a
draw-er. I was happy when Arthur Chu finally lost on
Unless there is something really exciting happening, I have a hard
time staying up past 10:30. I love road trips and audio books. I
mix limeade with my beer. If I start to read a book I have to
finish it, even if it is terrible.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have an incredibly boring job - but not to worry! It allows me to
work from home and listen to a criminal amount of podcasts and
audiobooks. I've moved to MI from the south to finish my
undergraduate degree and save for grad school, so my days are
pretty full with work and school, but I'm always willing to make
time for an adventure.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
...packing a lunch.
Seriously. You'll want to invite me to your next picnic.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My humor. I'm most comfortable when people around me are happy and
laughing, so I'm quick to diffuse a tense situation with an (often
inappropriate) joke or story.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Favorite books: My favorite authors (the short list): Ernest
Hemingway, John Irving, Margaret Atwood, Alice Monroe
Favorite Movie: I'll admit it - Lord of the Rings.
Shows: Outside of documentaries (I'm a sucker for anything from the
history of cement to nature shows narrated by Attenborough), I love
catching up on shows on Netflix and I'm guilty of loving cable
shows Game of Thrones, The Knick, Eastbound and Down, and The
Food: I have a sweet tooth - I love ice cream!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My dogs (two of the best pit bulls a girl could ask for)
Something to read
Diet Dr Pepper (judge me if you must)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What if the color green as I perceive it is really everyone elses'
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home, grilling out and enjoying a delicious beer.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
If I don't hide them, my dog will eat the crotch out of my
underwear (but not while I'm wearing them).
When I tried to outwit him and stop wearing underwear, he started
eating the crotches of my pants.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You like cashews. They are my least favorite nut and I'm looking
for someone to help me finish this fancy nut mix.
Or if you can help me practice my French.
