Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I just found, when I got matched with myself, this profile that I
made about 6 years ago and totally forgot about. I have another
one, so if you bump into me there ("substituted") you now know wtf
is going on. I'll get round to amalgamating them at some point
(probably, possibly). Meanwhile here's how I described myself in
Usually, the fortress is being manned by me and various historical
friends that I call on to give me a hand, but somewhere down in the
peasant village of my consciousness, there's that little devil that
appears on cartoon characters' shoulders, running around pulling
the odd lever that I don't even know is there.
The angel dude is acting as the undercover agent that's trying to
find the bastard, gag him and bring him back for sadistic
torturing. It's a constant game of cat and mouse.
Though it's a bit of a fortress, school of hard knocks and all
that, there is a door in the wall that opens from the inside. I'm
not bitter :)
I love people of all races and origins. I love all religions
(really) and all body shapes and sizes. I love people who laugh at
themselves and love people, and I love compassion and giving people
the benefit of the doubt - but I'm no sucker.
I am versatile, tenacious, and really weird, but in a good way
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Researching and administrating. Studying French and Latin. Looking
after my kids. I am a single parent.
Trying to become a better person, with varying amounts of success
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Research. Languages. Making tea. Knowing lots and lots of stuff
about all sorts of things that aren't much use to anyone, and then
not being able to change a washer on a tap (faucet) or put up a
shelf. Arty stuff. Mathy stuff. Bit of a polymath, really.
I don't know if I'm good at these things, but when I do them,
people seem to be satisfied with the result.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
It used to be my wacky haircuts and dye-jobs, but since I got scalp
problems I've just had to be a grade 1 man... so nowadays I don't
quite know what it is people notice about me. And I guess it would
depend on who it was and in what circumstances they met me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
How many books I've read or films I've watched isn't important.
Lots of people read lots of books and still learn nothing.
How a person behaves is the greatest testament to what they really,
The stuff I like is enormously varied and not limited to any
particular language, historical period or genre - enough said.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Assuming this is a desert island scenario... Reason, water, food,
an intelligent but docile person who is fit and strong and will do
whatever I tell him, robusticity (I heart making up words) and a
big survival manual. In that order. If I had those things, I could
produce all the other stuff.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wondering whether I'm listening enough. Just where I should draw
the line with regard to how much crap I'll take and if there should
even be one at all, and if so, shouldn't it be the same line for
everyone, or should blood relations get special dispensation?
Also - how much can a person be into Star Trek before they're
officially obliged to confess that they're a Trekkie?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Maybe playing Scrabble or coming up with a possible premise for a
sci-fi movie or comedy sketch. I don't get out much because of the
kids, but that's fine with me - I'm not really into big social
circles anyway. My social activity outside of home is mostly during
daytimes. But quite a bit takes place actually in my home - it's a
sort of open house.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not from what you'd call a close-knit family.
Oh, and when I was born, everyone thought I was a girl.
