My new strategy is to be blunt and straight to the point, which is a pretty good indication of my personality tendencies anyway. I don't necessarily think the online medium is the best way for me to meet people, because personal chemistry and sense of humour are paramount to my interest in a sexual/romantic relationship, and I seem to be bad at judging that from online. Which leads to semi-awkward dates. But I'm pretty chatty so I usually do ok. Anyway, I still have hope that this could lead to something good or fun. Okcupid, why can't I quit you?
I'm super busy with work lately, so I'm not necessarily looking for something super serious right away. Having said that, if I don't actively like you, or am not interested, I'm not going to waste both of our time with casual dating and conversation.
I'm vegan and it's the best decision I ever made. If you're vegan too, that's awesome. If you're not, but you're open to it, I can handle that too.
I'm a serious feminist, which means that I think our current gender system is bad for everyone, and I am actively working to challenge it. In a more practical sense, this means my goal in life is not to be pretty (please keep this in mind if you're considering sending me a message) , I don't wear make up, I don't think weight has any kind of bearing on morality, I'm super sex positive, and I think everyone should be allowed to love and/or fuck whomever and however they please, as long as it's all consensual.
I'm not laid back, down-to-earth, and just your average person. I also do not like travelling, seeing live music or exploring the city for the most part. I think this rules out 95% of okcupid users. I do like Netflix and coffee though.
I'm super passionate about teaching and I really believe it's what I'm supposed to be doing with my life, so it's awesome that I'm finally working in my field, even if it's not the ideal situation.

- you're both charming/witty and nerdy...but actually charming, think Sam from "Supernatural" not Andrew from "Buffy" (although he's a great character)
- You didn't answer "yes" to "Do you think women are obligated to shave their legs?", and also didn't answer fake no: "No: but it's gross if they don't"
