- I had open heart surgery a couple months ago, so I can't lift more that 20 lbs for awhile. Which is fine, because I don't really like lifting things.
- I've discovered recently that I don't like dogs. I feel like everyone should like dogs, but most have too much nervous energy. And I have too much nervous energy. And that is far too much nervous energy to go around.
- I don't cook. I've been told I should like to cook, because I'm "creative." But I do like to eat. So, I think I would be a good match for someone who likes to cook.
- I've been told I look *much* younger than I am. Recently at a restaurant I was ID'd getting a beer…with lunch. I don't know why the lunch part makes it worse. But it does.
- I used to work as a psychotherapist and I feel an obligation to tell people that, so they will know that I can (and will) read their minds.
- I'm very liberal. Like, super liberal.
- I used to draw and paint, but haven't made much time for it recently. I think I'm going to try and force myself.
- I can be quite jumpy and am easily embarrassed.
- I am much more comfortable one-on-one or in small groups.
I currently work for a startup nonprofit and luckily have a pretty flexible schedule.
- protesting sleep
- making halloween costumes
- guessing people's weight (Ok, I only did that once.)
Movies and music: Yes to both.
Food: LOVE most food, particularly sweets and breakfast food. Bacon and chocolate make me happy, separately or together.
- close friends
- my phone/camera
- some sort of creative outlet
I mean, I get it. This whole thing is awkward. You could spend 5 min drafting a message and then the person might not reply. But if you want someone to respond, putting out a microscopic amount of effort usually helps. I mean, how is one supposed to respond to "hi" anyway?
See, it's just not good. The only other thing that might be worse is "what's up?"
