My self-summary
I have been on OkC for over 5 years. I have not been on a date of any sort or had any romantic anything in over 3 1/2 years. I am not looking to date or meet anyone. During my active time on OkC, I have made some wonderful friends and continue to interact with them on here by using the forums and messages. I don't use fb, twitter or any other social media- this is my go-to for socializing with friends - weird? Yes. Am I going to change? No.

When it says in my profile that I am only looking for friends- this is the total truth. It's not code for anything nor is it hiding a secret of some other true desire.

I am telling you this because I don't want to you to write me a message or put in any effort thinking it's going to change my mind. I want you to go spend some quality time writing a good message to someone who really would like to hear from you and get to know you. I know she's out there. And I know that OkC has oodles of success stories.

But just know, I'm not a success story. I'm just another oddity you have stumbled upon in your search.

I belong in the 1990s.
What I’m doing with my life
Changing your life
I’m really good at
Riding in trains and buses.
The first things people usually notice about me
My capricious attitude towards capitalizing letters, determining line breaks, making full sentences, using oxford commas, and including periods in this profile. A lady has to let her hair down and live it up in one way or another, no?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I tend to like specific authors and stick with them: John Steinbeck, Craig Thompson, David Foster Wallace, Neil Gaiman; otherwise I'm probably reading some sort of how-to book.

I'm a bit behind on movies. I have a few loves like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Harold and Maude, The Princess Bride, those sorts of 'classics', if you will. But I've never seen Jaws or The Godfather or Apocalypse Now. I do like Star Wars, I'm not a superfan, but on a rainy day I'd be happy to watch the movies again.

With that said, I kind of like TV better. A movie tends to be a one shot 2 hour deal, where a good tv show, you can cozy up and get to know the characters and immerse yourself in their world for a longer period of time and I really enjoy that. Some favs: American Horror Story: Asylum, Bones, The Good Wife, Pushing Daisies, Chuck, Battlestar Gallactica, HIMYM (although I hope this is the last season!).

As far as music I tend to like college radio stuff from the 90s and early aughts. Sometimes popular, sometimes obscure. Right now I am enjoying Dum Dum Girls, Neil Halstead, Modest Mouse, Mates of State, Camera Obscura, Dirty Projectors, Rilo Kiley.

I love all sorts of food and that's one of my favorite things about NYC is the many different options available.
Six things I could never do without
Monstera deliciosa - This is a plant at work that I've been taking care of for years. Secretly I'm hoping they'll let me take it as a parting gift, whenever I move on from my current employment, even though it's like 7' tall and 6' wide and a good 50lbs-60lbs at this point. I'd also be bringing it home by subway, I don't think it's the weirdest thing anyone's seen transported on a subway, but I hope to make a top 10 list.

Electric kettle- because I love tea and am very absent minded. It's one of those things you never knew you needed until you have it.

The feeling of cut grass between my toes. As soon as spring arrives I love going to Central Park, taking off my shoes and just walking. I don't care about the funny looks or the many dangers my feet may face, there is something really magical about that feeling that is worth it.

People. I'm trying to avoid the cliche ones but this is the one thing I really can't deny putting on the list. The times I've been most happy in my life, the time I've felt most precious has been spent with people. With friends, family, strangers, students, teachers, singing bus drivers etc.

The music of Belle and Sebastian - there is such a magic to their music. It inspires me to pursue all the beautiful, wonderful, tangible things in the world.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
I want to see movies of my dreams
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There were probably birds outside of our little room.
I don't remember anything but you.
You should message me if
You believe that it's possible that internet strangers could become friends.

You want to just hang out in NYC and do something in the park, or go to a museum, or just wander around the city.

I'd love to meet and see what kind of relationship we can grow together, organically. I want to follow my heart, not a formula.
The two of us
