Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey! My name is Annika pronounced On-i-ka (like monica with a
silent"m") hence the username turnmeannika haha. But don't get too
excited- it was the only thing I could think of that wasn't taken
and I wasn't about to take the suggested "Annikasaurus" username.
I've never done a dating site before but I moved to Chicago about a
year ago so I thought it would be fun. If I meet you and you're
super creepy let me just warn you-- my ninja skills....well my
ninja skills suck but I can do some pretty potent damage with a
fork. Just saying. I'm not going to say too much else because then
we would have nothing to talk about and we could run into some of
those long awkward silences so just go ahead--message me and ask
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
If anyone figures it out- let me know because I'm pretty
Oh...it means like a job? I'm a flight attendant. If you like mini
pretzels then I'm sure we'll get along.
I love traveling, I love languages and I love meeting people from
other countries so I gear my life towards furthering those things.
I really would like to learn Arabic so if you can teach me, holla
atta playa yo. I've been trying but every time I find a tutor I
either move or they move. It's like a curse....
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
laughing at myself and accruing freckles. Seriously I think
real-estate was cheap on my face and they all decided to settle
down there. And then have children. And then the in-laws came and
moved in down the street. Although that's mostly in the summer.
Apparently a lot of my freckles are somewhat affluent and have
summer homes somewhere else in the winter.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm not really sure....My glowing personality? Haha- You tell me!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Empires of Sand, The Power of One, Lamb, The Phantom Tollbooth,
Harry Potter, Ironfire, Ugly Americans, Anything by Carl Haissen or
Roald Dahl, Tin Tin comics, Calvin and Hobbes, Powers of
10.....really there are too many to count. I never had a TV growing
up so books were my main staple for indoor entertainment. If you
really like something, suggest it! I love hearing about new
I like action, comedy, french and mystery movies. Hate horror and
gore (shudder). I'm a chick so chick flicks are in there as well.
(I hope this has put your mind at ease that I'm not some middle age
balding man. I just saw that catfish show on TV the other day and
am highly amused/ slightly horrified...okay a lot horrified, what
exactly did I sign myself up for??)
Food...um..yes please? All of the above?
Music- can't live without it and I love pretty much everything. Not
so much punk, heavy metal or ska but most everything else and I'll
groove right along. Sometimes I find myself awkwardly walk/dancing
down the street.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
You mean they can't all be coffee and sleep? Alright, off the top
of my head: Coffee, sleep, family, friends, music aaaaaand probably
heat. I swear, our heat was off for like three days when I first
moved to chicago- I think I was wearing almost every piece of
clothing I own and I refused to open the fridge. I was like the
Michelin Man rolling around the apartment. Also I got one of those
electrically heated blankets which means I've now developed this
innate fear that it is going to catch on fire while I'm sleeping
and make a nice little Annika Roast- Annika Roast- the other white
meat. It was a bit of a scarring experience.
Wait wait wait- am I allowed to have 7? Can I break the rules that
way? Because unfortunately I could never do without my phone. I
always thought I was pretty free from the shackles of technology.
That was before I lost my phone for a week. I had no alarm, I
couldn't navigate anywhere, I didn't know how to contact anyone but
my childhood house phone number....it's a cold cold dark world out
there without a phone, I know that now.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out on the town. Or flying around in a plane. It could go either
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

So sometimes( not often) I do several loads of laundry and instead
of folding it right away like a real adult I just pile it on my bed
so that I can do it all at once. Which I inevitably don't because I
either get distracted or decide I've put in enough work for the
afternoon and I get on with life. Then when faced with the giant
laundry pile at bedtime I just kind of burrow under it and consider
it an extra layer of warmth for a day or two. Okay it happens
often. Don't judge me.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You follow these simple rules:
1) you want to
2) you are literate
3) you aren't thinking in your head, "Hey you know what will thrill
this girl's mind and make her really want to write back....if I
write "Hey" or "what's up" instead of a question or some response
to her profile. That should give her loads of things to say back!"
