I love intensity and I run to where the action is. I crave sensation. I like to drive down the highway with all the windows open, with the music turned up as loud as it will go, screaming along. I eat the most flavorful exotic food I can find and I like to run outside naked during thunderstorms.
My life is an adventure and I’m out to try everything and do everything I can. I jump at every chance I get to try something new.
I'm a gamer and I spend a lot of time in geeky pursuits. I can spend hours reading Wikipedia for fun. I play video games like a lot of people read books or watch movies, and I think they are an incredible medium for story-telling. I also enjoy board games, card games, pen and paper RPGs, and pretty much any type of game. I'm a connoisseur of Android and iPhone games and I will defeat you at Words with Friends and beat your high score on Angry Birds. I believe that anything that was fun when you were five is still fun when you're an adult. When it’s warm out I've been known to start spontaneous midnight games of tag and hide and seek.
I have a BA in Psychology from the University of Michigan and a Masters degree in Social Work from Columbia University; and at this point, I can read minds. I find people absolutely fascinating and I’m always trying to find out what makes them tick. I like meeting new people and sometimes manage to maintain the facade that I'm not 6'3" of socially awkward. I find small talk unsatisfying but I love a good debate and I thrive on deep conversation. If we talk long enough, chances are you're eventually going to tell me that one thing that you've never told anyone.
I grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and I'm a bleeding heart liberal, a long haired hippy, and a sex positive feminist.
I've been in open and polyamorous relationships, attended swinger parties, and hung out in BDSM dungeons. Ah the stories I could tell… but I'm trying to keep my OKC profile polite. If you want to learn more about this side of me you’re better off checking out my Fetlife profile - TallAndBitey.
I REFUSE TO BE BORED! EVER! And so should you!
After graduating with a degree in Psychology from the University of Michigan I’ve spent the last couple years diving into the mental health field. I’ve worked with kids and adults with developmental disabilities like autism, I’ve worked as a substance abuse counselor, I’ve facilitated support groups for individuals getting out of prison, I’ve worked one-on-one with perpetrators of domestic violence, and I’ve worked in just about every capacity at the nation’s only all-volunteer crisis center (think suicide hotline) for over 4 years. I’m ecstatic to have this opportunity to take my work to the next level and I’m sure it’s just a matter of time before I have my own sidewalk booth charging five cents for psychiatric help!
It’s always good day when a 300lb, 6’4” drug dealer who never smiles starts bawling in a circle full of abusers because I got him in touch with his feelings.
I moved to New York City in August of 2012 and graduated with my masters of social work from Columbia University in 2014. Now I work as a therapist at a mental health clinic in Brooklyn, helping adults, families, teenagers, kids, and couples navigate their trials and tribulations. I have too much to read, too much to write, too many clients to help, and not enough time, sleep, or caffeine; in short, I love my life.
Knowing really obscure, useless trivia about EVERYTHING! (Thanks Wikipedia!)
If you're a good girl you'll probably notice my blue eyes and huge smile. If you're a bad girl...well...let's just say my ass is FANTASTIC!
I've been going to see this in theaters at least once a year since I was in High School. I wish yelling obscenities in a group was the social norm at more functions
Music – Anything that’s loud and fast and full of energy! I like a lot of punk, rock, and metal but I’m pretty eclectic and will listen to just about anything, depending on my mood. I like going to live shows and concerts. Some that I’ve attended in the last few years include Blink 182, Green Day, Flogging Molly, The Offspring, HIM, Kittie, Angels and Airwaves, and Mindless Self Indulgence.
Shows - I like funny stuff. The Office, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development (The first three seasons), South Park, The Simpsons, Family Guy.
Authors – Chuck Palahniuk, Douglas Adams, and literally everyone who writes for cracked.com See: http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-reasons-your-online-dating-profile-isnt-working/
Food – I love food. Especially sushi, lobster, and steak. I have a weakness for junk food aND a fetish for decadent abominations of food porn. Ask me about the bacon and cheese stuffed pizza burger. There is nothing in the world that cannot be improved with the addition of bacon and/or whipped cream.
I also love live theater and stand up comedy. I try to see an on or off Broadway Show at least once a month, and live comedy just as often. Sleep No More is my favorite thing I've experienced since coming to New York, with sitting 10 feet away from Chris Rock at a tiny Manhattan club a close second.
Entertainment – Be it video games, my laptop, music, movies, books, board games, stories, good conversation, ect. I MUST BE STIMULATED AT ALL TIMES!
Physical Affection – without it I’ll wither and die. I also need every muscle massaged and my back scratched daily. I'm pretty high maintenance in that way.
Laughter – I will laugh at the most high concept performance art stand up comedy and then laugh equally hard at the dirty limericks written on the bathroom wall. I’ll chortle at Voltaire and then I’ll append “that’s what she said” and “your mom” to the end of your sentences. Also, in my line of work a sense of humor is a coping skill. The darker the better.
Variety – the spice of life.
Good Friends – we all need somebody to LEAAAAN OOOONNN!!!
Could this situation be described as ironic or is it just unfortunate/hilarious?
What am I feeling right now?
What would be good to eat right now?
Other times I like to get out and have grand adventures throughout this crazy city.
-You’re fun loving, adventurous and willing to try anything!
-You're a gamer girl who likes dorky boys.
-You're well educated, driven, and ambitious
I am a very empathic, accepting, caring, supportive person, and these are the traits that have helped me succeed in my professional life. That being said I am not looking for someone to take care of, and I am not looking to be taken care of. What I am looking for is a reciprocal relationship with an equal; a best friend.
