My self-summary
I am a total geek and proud of it. I love games, museums, animals, cooking, books and crafty stuff. I watch Sci-Fi. I go to conventions. I LARP. I talk about what I'd do during a zombie apocalypse and wish I could travel in space. I love British television. I read. A lot.

I have a quirky, sarcastic, somewhat dark sense of humor and I love to laugh. I need a lot of alone time. Politically I am super liberal. I am a socialist. I detest organized religion.

I really like tattoos. I have two and I am planning on more. I think they are super sexy on other people.

I like being upfront and honest. I'm not looking for anything casual. Being nonmonogamous and being not serious are different things. Don't panic! I won't try to propose on the second date or anything. I just mean that if serious relationships aren't an option for you, we'd both be wasting our time.

I am passionate about science and teaching. I place a high value on education. I have a B.S. in zoology, a B.A. in psychology and an M.S.Ed. in Environmental Education.

I'm a teacher.Currently subbing, I'll be starting school to get my certificate next month. I have plans to build a Tiny House. I want to move to England to teach.

The six things I could never do without
1. Family. I come from a huge family and we are fairly close. If you want to be with me, you have to get along with them as well.

2. Books. I love the smell of libraries.

3. Pets (preferably cats)

4. Laughter. Everything can be funny. Nothing is sacred.

5. Science. There is order to the universe and if you test it properly you can discover it.

6. Chocolate. I'm a girl.

You've gotten this far. Don't be shy.

A note to the guys: Want to make your profile better?
1) Post close up pictures of your face WITHOUT hats or sunglasses and not taken in a bathroom.
2) Fix ALL the typos. Use complete sentences with proper grammar, spelling, capitalization and punctuation.
3) DON'T use the following terms: laid back, easy going, "females" (Ugh! We're not cattle!), lonely (you'll seem desperate), I hate online dating/making a profile (why are you here then?)
4) Write about what makes you unique. What are your goals? What do you value? Show off that sense of humor.
