Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Necessary foreword: Generally, I won't respond to people who live
outside of Austin. That said, some of my best friends I've made
from different cities who messaged me about common interests! I
also won't respond if we have nothing established in common. I will
respond if you're interested/read in social justice, or a POC, or
queer, or a lady, and especially all of the above.
Austin transplant from Plano, UT grad from Plan II/English. I love
going on dates, whatever that means to you: board games, movie
night, walking down the park, futzing around in a library, setting
things on fire in the backyard, robbing a museum, just casual
I love deep conversation and fart jokes. Especially at the same
I'm a pretty outgoing introvert, which means I'll chat up any
random stranger for hours but I prefer staying in with close
friends ogling naked bodies on Game of Thrones and talking about
life. Becoming a more educated person about oppression, power, and
subversion, and money (because I like money).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I get a massive headrush when learning about new people. As for
hobbies....knitting lace, getting back into powerlifting, learning
ASL (would love to meet someone to practice signing with), physical
stuff like hiking. I'm very much into exploring activities that
have gendered histories. Gender is a performance, said Butler
(citation needed), and I like to really act it out. I've got very
ladylike Victorian lolita days and super butch low-budget 80's
movie denim days.
Working as a manager in dat corporate lyf.
When I have free time I'm usually at home writing on some projects,
mainly short stories (would love to hear your favorite ones).
Currently working on building my tea collection, using my Aeropress
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
This question is way more fun if I tell you what I'm bad at:
getting cultural references, straightening my hair, flirting with
cute girls, starting big books and then not eating until I'm done,
getting my cats to behave, living up to my Chinese immigrant
mother's expectations of me becoming a leader in the medical field
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really proud of my resting bitch face.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books - One Hundred Years of Solitude, Sense and Sensibility,
Shades of Grey (BY JASPER FFORDE, not the erotica!)...I really like
sci-fi and post-apocalyptic stuff, but right now the market's
inundated with silly romantic YA novels.
Movies - One of my many talents is crying during every movie I
watch. Like Fast and the Furious.
Music - My perfect Pandora station: Chopin, Gottschalk, Clazziquai
(a Korean alternative/experimental band), Janelle Monae, Justice,
Shows - There is no show I watch that distinguishes me from the
whole set of slightly hipstery, austinite
doctor-who-and-game-of-thrones crowd. Guilty pleasure: Scandal.
Brazen pleasure: RuPaul's Drag Race. I love me a documentary show,
Food - I cook a lot. Holla at me.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. my extensive collection of pens
2. coconut-flavored sunflower seeds
4. LIFTING HEAVY
5. bobby pins
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to be a better person. Social justice and action work. Books
I'm reading. New ways to socialize with people. How nice it feels
to make out with somebody you're mentally intimate with.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Organizing my brain, hanging out intimately with friends, catching
up on shows, planning Saturday. I get along well with people who
are both very social and not too social at all.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have two laughs: a pretty giggle that I practiced in the mirror
in my insecure teenage years and a uncontrollable guffaw so crude
that I'll actually drool.
Also, I'm currently in a poly relationship. Right now I'm seeing a
couple of people casually aside from my boyfriend, and have
funtimes with friends too, so if you message me, please keep that
in mind. I am very NSA, so overtures about how you'll treat me like
a princess and be loyal to me, whereas kind in intention, are
meaningless. Also, I'm pretty kink+ so I'd love to hear if you've
got an out-of-the-box one!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You wanna do activities (I mean this in both the literal sense and
the Stepbrothers sense)...or if you're a lover of queer politics,
or a reader of fantastical things, or a terminally ill and
extremely rich person.
I generally respond to people with something interesting or funny
to say, whether it's about you or me or the history of potato
farming. Once again, if you're queer, femme, POC, and especially
all three I'll always respond.
