Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Self-summaries are hard. Everyone on the internet says so.
I'm a nanny, a (former) chef, a friend, a lover, and an all around
good time. I don't tend to care for sitting through movies, but I
love watching TV shows, and I have a nasty addiction to the
internet. I went to culinary school, and so while you might think
that would make me perfectly suited for cooking romantic meals, I'd
rather cook together. That said, cook for me, even box mac and
cheese, and I will love you forever. Well, unless its the Velveeta
mac and cheese. I don't eat that shit. Powdered "cheese" only,
I'm polyamorous, and currently sharing my local love life with the
amazing chitownhero. I am also super fortunate to have several
mindblowingly great long distance partners. Basically, what I'm
saying is that I'm super duper fortunate, and also super duper
busy. This isn't me telling you not to email me, but to keep your
expectations casual. My interest drifts mostly towards female
identified people, but my dating history skews to the male end of
the spectrum. I'm really goofy and nerdy, but I am fiercely loyal
and take my relationships seriously. If going out on dates,
cuddling and making out, and watching a lot of Netflix together
sounds fun, let's see how we match up OFF of OkCupid! I'm really
not that swell at random introductions on the internet. I also kind
of loathe the process of dating. It can feel a little like a job
I am mordacious, intelligent, and more introverted than you'll
think when you first meet me.
Meyers Briggs type INFJ.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
After a decade as a chef, I've decided to go back to school to get
a degree in nutrition. My last job was teaching
underemployed/unemployed people how to cook and get jobs as
prep/line cooks, and I loved it! Now I want to take all of that
experience, add a little more book knowledge to it, and go back to
changing the world. In the meantime, I am a nanny to two wonderful
kids, and I'm really enjoying the change of pace.
After I get sick of changing the world, though...the circus! Except
for that nasty phobia of clowns I have, I'm sure it could work out.
I always wanted to go somewhere where I felt like people saw the
world the way I do, bright and colorful and very, very strange.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I don't know about "really" good, but I'm good at cooking and
singing...sorta. I kind of have a deep seated love of karaoke, but
if you ask me about it to my face, I may deny it. I'm a pretty
first rate snuggler, too.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm told that most people notice my smile first. I'm pretty
animated. I keep hoping that it will be something cool like the
third eyelash from the center on my right eye, but that just hasn't
happened yet. I'm beginning to wonder if I should grow another
appendage so that I can have something original and unique to put
in this here little section.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Game of Thrones series, In Defense of Food, Harry Dresden
series. I LOVE to read, and there are very few books that don't
Movies: Not a big movie person, but I will admit to loving big
action movies with scads of special effects and scantily clad
people. I'm not a cinema buff, and I make no claims to be one. If
you are, that's totally cool with me, just be prepared to explain
what you're so excited about.
TV shows: I vastly prefer TV shows to movies. Coupling (the British
version), Community, and early episodes of Good Eats are
Music: Modest Mouse, Nellie McKay, Marilyn Manson, The Killers,
Aesop Rock, Dessa, opera and classical, etc...again, eclectic is
Food: I'll eat just about anything. I love traditional ethnic
cuisines, and any seafood. If you pick a decent restaurant to go to
or cook me something delicious, I will be a happy person. I've
finally learned to like specific types of olives, and I'm allergic
to bell peppers, but most any food is interesting and enjoyable to
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-my laptop (See multiple references to internet addiction)
-my iPhone (Siri and I are BFFs, or something)
-my chefs knife (Its shiny and big and sharp, and it loves
-my stuffed elephant (Her name is Ellie and if you buy me a drink,
I might be coerced in to telling you about her)
-my cat, Trysten (she's super adorable and quirky...just like every
other cat on the internet)
-a car (I like to go places that aren't wherever I am)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
New recipes, random sexual scenarios, whether or not I should
consider the internet an addiction or if I could give it up if it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
-hanging with friends
-out having adventures
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am way kinkier than you, and that's okay with me. No, I'm not
kidding. Telling me about the shitty plastic handcuffs you keep
next to your bed will NOT interest me, but asking intelligent and
informed questions about this admission, or sharing something
Also (bonus private thing!) - People that present as female tend to
make me stammer, blush, and in general act like a shy 12 year old
boy. I like ladies, I do! I just...can't really manage any passable
conversation at first. I warm up in time!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
SHALLOW EDIT: if you look like or sound like Tom Hiddleston, please
apply within. Quickly. Good god.
if you know something I don't and want to tell me about it. I have
an almost fetishistic desire to understand things I know nothing
about, so even if the thing you're passionate about means nothing
to me, I can get pretty excited about it. If you're not passionate
about it, though...don't bother.
if you like low-key dates and queer identified people that think
chapstick and mascara is a makeup routine, but also love having an
excuse to get all dolled up.
if you're tall.
if you like to try new restaurants.
Or...you know, if you're bored. (I have GOT to stop using ellipses
Also, if you'd kiss me first.
You should NOT message me if:
You voted for Mitt Romney (frankly, I'd be startled if you made it
this far in my profile if you did).
You feel it necessary to tell me how no, really, you are WAY
kinkier than me.
