My self-summary
I am looking for a crockpot kind of love. Sustained and steady, warm and ready. Slow to cook and not too heady.

I'm great conversation in most situations - I try to keep up on most topics, and if I don't know something I'm happy to learn.

I've been told it's surprising I'm an avid gamer - it's probably my favorite hobby and I'd like to share that with someone.

Soft butch. Lorelai Gilmore. Liz Lemon. Bojack Horseman.
What I’m doing with my life
Consumption of media.
Being accused of witchcraft.
Playing video games when I get the chance.
Completing a Master's program (and getting too involved in said program.)
Salty snacks.
I’m really good at
Words, small talk, eye contact.

Leaving my head uncovered.

Entertaining your mother.

Worrying about all the things you aren't saying.

Six things I could never do without
My collection of vintage scrying pools.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how to humiliate my social rivals through intrigue and court politics.
On a typical Friday night I am
Probably wondering if it's worth braving the weather.
If yes, dancing with friends.
If no, whiling away til the wee hours.

For this year, it's working on grad school readings and writing before an early bed time. :/
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm actually a mannequin brought to life by an ancient curse.
You should message me if
You can deliver more than "hi" or "what's up?"

You are capable of speaking about a topic you love to a stranger with enough detail you fear that you'll bore them. You consider learning to be your life's pursuit, in or out of the classroom. You are tall. You want to hear about farm life. You're proud of your work. You think flakiness is a cardinal sin. You would never dare use "renaissance man" to describe yourself. You have fond feelings for Northwestern. You enjoy the flirtation, but know how to close.

If we get one of those match emails from OKCupid, I'm probably giving you the go ahead. I won't be mean, I promise. Seriously.
The two of us
