Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I find Okcupid fun so I will change the first lines to my self
summary often, take tests and try to remain upbeat.
Ok, I made the move. I love my house and the weather.
Unfortunately, I'm running into the same type of social problems.
If you don't read the "about" section of these profiles don't
bother sending a message--one more picture of a dude with his wife
beater halfway up showing off his ripped abs, thinking I'm going to
respond, I just might give up--I get it " you're sexy and you know
it!" I'm looking for better.
What is written below is my best attempt at describing
I am like that teacher in junior high that you had a crush on, the
one that you wished would take her glasses off more often, and wore
her skirts a bit too long. She was smart, articulate, and left just
enough to the imagination to make you want to do your homework. You
wondered what she did after the last bell rang.
Well she plays sports, watches sports, spends lots of time in the
library, she dances and reads by firelight, she runs in the
mornings and practices her roundhouse kick at night. She cherishes
her daughter who is the person she wants to be when she grows up.
She writes poetry and dreams of the book that she wrote going
viral. She knows who she is and what she wants from life. She has
seen more of the world than most, but knows the universe can be
travelled in a really clear thought.
She can stay in or go out and is sometimes more naughty than nice.
Can be sarcastic, and is never afraid to laugh at herself. She
knows the difference between wit and wisdom, and is humble enough
to know that she doesn't have enough of either (but more than what
most people expect.) She wants more and isn't afraid to find it in
I take people as they are, not who I want them to be. I am looking
for someone to return the favor.
