Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Here's a little something I've noticed - I've been told I'm not
like other women. (Not in a 'Wow, so you're a vampire' kind of way,
just to clarify.) It seems I didn't inherit the shopping-as-hobby
gene. I also don't subscribe to the 'chocolate is better than sex'
philosophy. If you believe that, I'm guessing you're not doing
something right. Granted, I'm not a big chocolate fan but still, no
dessert should be *that* good.
What else...I'm a left-wing, sarcastic smart-ass with a kind heart
and a long fuse. I know myself fairly well - superpowers, weird
bits and all - and don't believe in pretending to be otherwise. I'm
good to have around in a real crisis, but also at times when the
crisis seems to be that we've run out of wine.
Looking to eventually find a partner but taking my time, cause I
think love is the easy bit...trust and respect are harder but make
the rest possible. So I'll happily go on living my life til I,
hopefully, find what I want - a guy whose superpowers and weird
bits complement mine...
It should (but sadly, doesn't) go with out saying that I don't want
to spend my days with someone who is racist, homophobic,
fundamentalist, etc. You guys should check out 'Ok Ass Hat' maybe.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
- listening to people's stories - I love to know where you're from
and how you got that little scar on your forehead and why your
grandfather was the greatest guy ever.
- wishing I'd known that, once I chose my OKC nickname in a moment
of impulsive smartassery, I'd be stuck with it for all eternity.
- working for a great non-profit with people I love, who do great
things for others
- meditating, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot
- choir! choir! choir!
- learning the guitar
- at the moment wishing I played the guitar well enough that I
could say I play badly
- wishing I had a dog. A lot.
- throwing stuff out
- swimming, being on/in/near water whenever possible
- trying to be a good aunt to the fabulous kidlets in my life
- did I mention choir! choir! choir!?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
See above list - I don't want to brag, but I'm really quite good at
sucking at the guitar. Plus, I've been told I'm an above average
kisser, and I make pecan toffee that will curl your toes.
I've also recently started doing career transition counselling -
career therapy, really - for people who want to make a change or
just feel stuck. It's a pretty intuitive process, partly cause I've
had some really horrible work experiences, leading up to a career I
love. I deeply, passionately believe that everyone deserves to feel
good about what they do when Monday morning rolls around...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably not the first thing, but several people have told me
recently that I make friends easily. I've never really thought
about it, but given the family of friends that surrounds me, I'm
taking it as a damn fine compliment.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Lots and lots and lots. Some of the same stuff you like. Some you
don't. I was trying to avoid being all list-y, but here are some
random samples...Fall on Your Knees, Good Night and Good Luck,
paneer, Joni Mitchell, good tequila, Louis CK, A Fine Balance,
watermelon and cherries in the summer, Chuck Palahniuk, The
Newsroom, plus The West Wing, Charlie Wilson's War and anything
Aaron Sorkiny. Ditto Joss Whedon. Popcorn. Miles and Ella and Nina.
Cocktails with gin and cucumbers. Homeland. Bubbly. The smell of
garlic and rosemary on my hands after I've been chopping them
together. Any meal eaten near a wood burning fire on a cold day,
accompanied by red wine and making out.
There. So much for not being list-y.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Strong tea in the morning
A good bed
A good shower
Six more things
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What's next. Great love. Big, hairy life questions. Sex. Really
great kisses. Silence. Vegans - vegetarianism I understand, but a
life without cheese just mystifies me. Scary, batshit crazy
politicians...and lately, an unfamiliar, post-election feeling of
hope. Where I put my metropass.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm pretty damn strong and used to doing things for myself, and
happy to be independent . But sometimes I really miss having a
partner to lean on and share things with. Not earth-shattering, I
know, but still kinda hard to admit sometimes.
