Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
(Couldn't have said it better myself.)
I'm a sweet, innocent girl, that's often too shy an often too
blunt, often too big mouthed and often too curious.
I'm just trying to keep up with life and wondering what it's all
about, like anyone else. Trying not to hurt anyone and failing
miserably too often to my liking, like anyone else too
If I have to describe myself, I'd say that I'm sensitive,
intelligent, clumsy, spontaneous, emotional, deeply caring about
animals, introspective, serious, lazy, enthousiastic, euh... I
could go on for a while... :D
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
At the moment I'm studing General Linguistics at the university and
Speech Therapy at the university of applied sciences (hbo in
Dutch). I want to finish my Ba this year and start with the Ma
Speech and Language Pathology in Septembre next year. Doing 2
studies is quite hard, but I don't it mind that much, because I
love my studies and the combination of them is very
After finishing my Ma, I probably want to work with children with
severe speech disorders or hearing impairments. But next to that
I'm also very interested in children and adults with acquired
speech disorders due to an injury.
Next to my studies I will be doing a painting course and a ballroom
dancing course this year. I hope I can also take a Jiu Jitsu
course. In my spare time I like to visit my friends, to read, to
solve puzzles, to play (board and card) games, playing stupid
girlish computer games like 'the Sims' and at the moment 'Rune
Factory', I sometimes go jogging (preferably also with my dog), I
like to do Pilates and to dance. And if I have some time left I
want to practise Pole Fitness again.
To me the best way to spent the weekend is to take long strolls
with my parent's dog. It's one of my dreams to one day have my own
dog and walk to Santiago de Compostella with my dog.
I love being near animals, so I'm always wondering whether I should
give up my academic career after getting my Ma grade and go work
with animals. Maybe there will be a day that I can combine those
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Putting people and animals at ease.
And that means a lot to me. I think it's an important part of who I
am. I don't mind telling people when I think they make stupid
mistakes, I like laughing at people and that's not something you
should be offended by. Life is too ridiculous to pretend it's not.
I don't expect you to be perfect. As long as you try not to harm
others and try to learn from your experiences, you're safe with me.
I judge actions, not persons.
The most beautiful compliment I ever got was from a friend of a
friend who had just told me how he had messed up his life. He said
to me that he had never met anyone that was so honest and
unjudgemental at the same time. I do my best to keep that up.
"An' it harm none, do what ye will. Blessed be to
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Hmm, I wouldn't know. Probably my clumsiness. I tend to drop things
on the floor, struggle with my skirt and the wind while riding my
bicycle, trying to hold too many things in my hands at the same
time and most of the time I'm laughing at my silliness. I guess I'm
not very gracious. I'd love to be, but I'm not.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I always forget the names of the books and films and music that
really moved me.
But I like most of the work of Arthur Japin, Renate Dorrestein,
Harry Mulisch, Annie M.G. Schmidt and Terry Pratchett among others.
I like children's books and verses, folklore and psychological
As for films... I like films that have a bit of fantasy to them,
like Big Fish and Up. I like European films. And I like costume
dramas. I'm not very fond of most horror films, thrillers and chick
I don't listen to music much. I love the silence. Some of the music
that I do like is Pink Floyd, Queen, Lily Allen, Nick Drake, SOLO
and music from the musical Hair, Hairspray, Phantom of the Opera,
Jesus Christ Superstar.
Food.... Now were talking. I love food. I love to cook, which I
haven't done properly for a long period of time due to lack of a
proper kitchen. And I love to eat. Eating good food is heavenly.
All the subtile flavours, the structures, the smells...
I love dining, but my every day favorites are spaghetti and mash

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What moves people and what moves me.
And at the moment where I want to do my internships. I'm not very
good at choosing. I wouldn't want to miss out on anything.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At home or with friends playing games/chatting. I don't go out
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
is that I have a very low tolerance for stupidity. I know, it's not
something to be proud of, it's even very useless, but dumb people
really get on my nerves. I get the urge to bang people's heads
against a wall until their brain start working, but that hasn't
worked out for me (yet).
It's not that I find intelligence a very important trait in people.
I have more respect for compassion and kindness. But talking to
someone significantly less intelligent than I am, bores the hell
out of me.
On the other hand, I love talking to people that are smarter than
I. That means I have an opportunity to grow, to learn to think
better. I really get a kick out of a clean theory or a nice
argumentation. I rather be wrong than be bored.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you have (a) passion(s).
you are sensitive.
you are smart.
you are sincere.
But only message me if:
- you respect that I won't give you my MSN-address, photo's etc.
until I really like you and want to be friends with you 'in real
life' (and that can take a while...). Don't worry, I'm no monster,
I just like my privacy.
- you message me because you think you'd like me and not just
because I'm a woman and you might score.
Please don't be disappointed if I don't message you right away. I
tend to forget things that are not "in real life". I try my
In the past I tried to answer every message, even the
not-so-special-oneliners because I think people can be quite
different from the first impression they make. But I've learned
that my intuition is often right. So if you really want me to
answer, be creative!
I'd love to hear from you.
