My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I was little I wanted a dreamcatcher so I could hold my dreams in my hands when I woke up. Biggest disappointment of my life.

I like that all of us on here are fundamentally dissatisfied with some aspect of our social lives, so I add myself to the line of faces thinking themselves so full of merit and worthy of love and happiness, longing for each other.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Wiping the dust off of my creative writing degree every now and then, just to keep it looking nice.
Enrolled in a web and software development program that starts in January.
Trying to find the poetry in all things.
Teaching myself Portuguese so I can eventually do some literary translations.
Knitting my a$$ off.
Remembering to reach out and be kind.

Just rented a house with still_a_bikeman (OKC success story circa 2012!) in Washington Heights and we both are incredibly thrilled with it.

In the past year, in addition to my regular job as an office manager, I've moonlighted as a barista, a baker, a figure drawing model, an editor, and a farm hand. This has less to do with trying to make ends meet than it does with being endlessly curious about everything.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
quoting Mrs. Doubtfire. HTML easter eggs (obvs). introversion (INFJ!), which sometimes involves being real shy when my inner state doesn't translate into charming affability. making over-easy eggs in a teflon pan, the most beautiful ode to cancer I can think of [edit: I've upgraded to a cast iron skillet]. reading people, empathy, patience in general. being the best driver on the road and accelerating quickly past everyone else to let them know who has the bigger dick (me, bitches).
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't have bangs and I don't wear glasses, so I'm thinking it's the terrible bluntness of having a face untempered by fashion.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I'm innately distrustful of anything that's too easy to like. This has given me a deep appreciation for black coffee, arcane literature, discordant tunes, and misfits.

This song? Ineffable. This song? What an ache.

Richard Brautigan, Tom Robbins, Annie Dillard, Frank Stanford, and John Berryman are some of my favorite word-hounds. I read too much. This poem chokes me up every time.

I worship at the altar of the olive, the most wonderful of all foods (funny, I hated them a few years ago). I had sauteed hen-of-the-woods mushrooms recently and they blew my mind (another hatred overcome). Stinky cheese and a baguette is always a good idea. Potato pancakes and taco salad are also very fine.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-a sense of wonder, which holds hands with curiosity, which is married to imagination. Threesome!
-affection, in any of its forms--texts, hugs, letters, head rubs, etc.
-a challenge, project, or goal to keep me engaged.
-new ideas, to remind me that everything is mostly a mystery.

I take a lot of pleasure in seeing just how much stuff I can do without.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
whether my rabbit feels as uncomfortable when I pet him in his litter box as I would feel if a large hand reached through the bathroom door and started stroking my head while I was on the toilet.

How I can best package and sell my complex humanity to strangers on the Internet!

Why the people on this site who are only looking for new friends incidentally are only looking for new friends that correspond to the gender to which they're sexually attracted. Y'ALL IS FISHY.

No, but really: how a psychological redistribution of energy is the quickest way to feel alive. love--how to do it richly and honestly, without dependency or complacency, with the constant mutual challenge of pushing the other to be their best self. if it's true that everyone in this age is addicted to something (if you don't think you're addicted to anything, I want to pick your brain). how to best maintain conviction about one's sense of agency in the world. how to create meaning. remembering that having a passion for something means suffering for it.
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 super disenchanted with Wisconsin's drinking culture. It might be nice if you didn't fetishize alcohol too.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'd like to surround myself with people who bring the best out of me, and vice versa. Symbiosis, dudez.

Smart, funny weirdos who are into low-key hangouts, the occasional adventure, interesting talks and with few expectations for anything more involved than good friendship (which, c'mon now, is its own reward) are encouraged to apply.
