I love travelling, quirky restaurants, bumming around the city, sampling craft beer, hunting down homemade peppermint stick ice cream, writing, making things, hanging with friends and fam, and taking FAR too many pictures. Mostly of things that no one else finds interesting.
I'm also an atheist, and only interested in dating other non-religious people. Figured I'd better put this up front to avoid confusion.
I am Creative, Quirky, and Dichotomous.
I love arm warmers.
Pottermore sorted me into Gryffindor. Just sayin'.
Movie scores are my favorite genre of music.
I like ice in my milk and my orange juice. Haters gonna hate.
I like the smell of skunk. I have no justification for this.
My sense of style is a bit eccentric. I'm good with whatever your style is, as long as you HAVE one. Wal-mart jeans and XXL gamer tees do not count.
My favorite word is consanguineous. My second-favorite is extirpate. My least-favorite word is phony. It will not endear you to me if you use it in a message.
I find the word "non-conformist" slightly terrifying. It makes me imagine psychotic paratroopers bursting through the door in an attempt to capture me and prevent the spread of my insidious ways. For the same reason I find it fairly exciting.
I have a mild, irrational fear of my cell phone being lost, losing service, and/or running out of batteries. Thanks, X-Files.
...seriously, every time their phones fail alien motherships descend and Scully ends up getting molested and impregnated with alien spawn. No thanks.
I am often complimented on my facebook updates. Yeah, weird right? But seriously, check it out: "Your posts are some of the few that don't make me want to vomit all over the person who wrote them." Awesome.
My favorite form of matter is amorphous.
My favorite font is Tagettes
People who like playing devil’s advocate for fun
People who list the Bible (or any religious book) as one of the 6 things they cannot live without

I’ll tell you what I’m NOT doing…I’m certainly not out saving the world. I’m NOT fighting he-who-must-not-be-named, combating Nazis in a fedora, facing down Moriarty, or exploring the fire swamp. Who, me? Never.
Also, I have a TERRIBLE short-term memory…except when it comes to song lyrics and movie quotes.
Anyway, I'm more or less an open book...I've been told that I don't have much of a filter.
Frankly, I’m not really a white picket fences and 2.8 kids kinda gal. I don’t want a love like Edward & Bella, mostly because they’re both annoying as hell, but also because having a sparkling significant other would be really inconvenient at the beach. Long story short, I’m not in this to be swept off my feet. Fairytale love is kinda bs—which is why they always gloss over the rest of the story with “and they lived happily ever after.” What I really want is a full-time friend, an adventure amigo, a beer buddy who wants to wake up every day and decide that I’m the Han to their Leia, the Mulan to their Shang, the Obama to their Biden, the Gred to their Forge. You be Rose, I'll be the Doctor. Or you be the Doctor, and I'll be Rose. Or we can just be each other's Captain Jack Harkness and call it a day.
Let me reiterate: you should NOT message me if you're racist, homophobic, misogynist, in the military, or answered anything other than "no" to the question "should evolution and creationism be taught side-by-side in public schools?" Super serious.
Also, no couples. You're poly or looking to spice things up that's fine, but DO NOT WANT. Now quit messaging me.
If you're creative, smart, cute, funny, atheist, and quirky, email me. Now.
