And if you're a guy and feel like defying gender norms by describing in interesting detail what it's like to be you (on this site, or elsewhere if you prefer), I'd be interested. But here are the things about what it's like to be me that affect what my profile is like.
It's dangerous to even *mention* sex. The second I do, the fraction (but not number!) of messages that interest me plummets towards rock-bottom. I'm a dangerous woman (citation needed) so I persevere, but it kinda sucks, and encourages more sexual austerity than I'd like to see from myself on a dating profile.
A lot of people who message me here know me from irl. That's cool, but if you want to ask me out, you're also welcome to do it the old-fashioned way (by text or Facebook message, obviously). I never think less of people for asking me out, even if I say no (doing so would introduce some perverse incentives, no?). I tend to think more highly of them for asking someone out, which I'm usually too scared to do.
No matter how much I like to write shit on the internet (and I do), I can't help but think there's something a bit crass about asking me or someone else to describe themselves right off the bat. I'd rather sidle into it a bit. Then if we decide if it's less than unlikely that we'll end up spilling our guts to the blank and awkward apathy of someone who, we've all realized too late, could never be anything but a stranger, okay, fine, I'll spill my guts. Otherwise I imagine you accidentally happening upon my soul here, it looks like one of those pale, half-dead worms you see on the sidewalk after it rains a lot, and raising a single justifiably skeptical eyebrow.
