Name and/or nick-name: Robyn.
Gender: Female.
Sexual Orientation (Gay? Straight? Bi?): Straight, as far as I know.
Age: 30
Height: 5'9. Yes, that's 69 inches. The only pick up line i've ever had.
Build (Slim, medium, athletic/toned, large etc): Chunky

Would you date long distance?: Oh that's the easiest way to do it.

Hobbies: Scrapbooking, Writing, reading, the internet, Adoring StarWars.
Occupation: Teacher
Religious?: Yes. Christian even.
Music?: Also, Yes. I like so much. I have trouble accepting techno, screamo and hard-core music of any sort.
Living situation (alone? With parents? With room/housemates? etc): Housemates, who i happen to be related to.
Would you describe yourself as a homebody?: Oh Lord Yes.
Any particular SA fears? (Phones, crowds, public speaking etc): People, in general. Though, I'm a theatre geek, and when i'm on stage, i'm fine, but when i'm not acting, i'm a complete... loser socially.
Do you drink/do drugs/smoke?: Not Anymore.
Do you mind other people drinking/doing drugs/smoking?: It depends... I have a healthy respect for life, and don't want to see anyone throwing it away.
How about kids? (Got any now? Want any in the future?): Have none (other than my students.) Would not mind them in the future.

Appearance? (Photo and/or description): I'm chunky, average height, brunette, average looks.
Contact details? (Email address, AIM sn, MSN messenger etc.): snoopydancer on AIM
Anything else you want to say?: I don't know. I guess i joined here b/c it's late and I do inadvisable things after midnight.

I AM LOOKING FOR:

Friends. Funny, smart, geeky, whatever.

In a Guy?
A guy who accepts me as I am. Not someone I have to change for, but someone who loves me like my friends do and more. Not a perfect specimen of masculinity, not a super model, just a guy. Old enough to appreciate that I'm a keeper and cool enough to accept that this keeper sometimes dresses up like Silent Bob and goes to Star Wars conventions. And someone who is willing to be only with me, and not anyone else. Because I don't have it in me to share. I just want to find the guy I can love, and he's not hanging out at the dives around here... or at my all girl workplace...

zyxinn
This. Is. Me.

Name and/or nick-name: Stephanie
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation (Gay? Straight? Bi?): Straight, but a gay advocate
Age: old enough.
Height: short-ish. inbetween 5 and 6 feet ^_~
Build (Slim, medium, athletic/toned, large etc): medium.
Location (Town, state, country): lol. California, USA
Nationality (if different): American (Chinese/Vietnamese/French?)
Would you date long distance?: hm. not really.

Hobbies: debating, ice-skating, reading, writing, playing with my dogg
Occupation: student.
Religious?: contemplative is the word
Music?: most types, bar metal. not metal at all. cannot stand the pounding and screaming, really.
Living situation (alone? With parents? With room/housemates? etc): with parents. (still technically jailbait)
Would you describe yourself as a homebody?: hahaha yeah. school does that to a girl.
Any particular SA fears? (Phones, crowds, public speaking etc): crowds. i cannot STAND it when strangers touch me or breathe in my space. weird quirk, I know, but i'm like quasi-claustrophobic.
Do you drink/do drugs/smoke?: NO-- none of that.
Do you mind other people drinking/doing drugs/smoking?: drugs-- depends on the situation and as long as they don't pressure me. smoking-- yes, I do mind. Second-hand kills. Drinking-- I don't mind, but I wouldn't want a loved one to do it.
How about kids? (Got any now? Want any in the future?): Future. of course.

Appearance? (Photo and/or description): hm. i have a myspace. ^_^ there's a pic THERE.
Contact details? (Email address, AIM sn, MSN messenger etc.): uh. check my livejournal. it has any details that i'm willing to divulge in user info. lol.
Anything else you want to say?: i'm cynical, pessimistic, but at the same time, i don't know. i guess i wish I had the troublesome relationships that some others have. the ones where you don't think too much about the negative. So far, i guess i'm just not interested in anyone... but would definitely love a bf for homecoming lol.

I AM LOOKING FOR: [this section is just a guide. You can write completely your own thing if you want! But sometimes a little inspiration can be helpful]

Someone older than me (i don't know why, but i prefer men 1-10 years older than me. lol)
Someone taller than me
Someone who lives close by-- yeah kinda.
A homebody/someone that likes going out/a combination-- COMBINATION. because i'm partially a homebody due to school and a tight schedule. so can't complain-- but would LOVE to go out. I've only been out once with a guy past 2 am-- but got freaked out cuz it was past curfew here. lol. curfew is at 10 pm-- so if the police catch you out after then, as a minor, you could get in potentially, a lot of trouble.
Similar hobbies/music tastes to me-- yeah. i suppose so.
Someone living alone/with parents/with housemates-- don't care.

LOL.

i just advertised myself. (shakes head). well. i suppose i'm just being odd. depressed cuz the last guy i liked, truly, had a girlfriend already. hmm. or wife.

Socially Anxious Singles

ace
Name and/or nick-name: Name's Asaph. My friends call me Ace in real life, which is a nickname I'm grateful for. You never know when you'll have too much to drink one night and wind up with a lifetime moniker like "lil willy" or "cheeks."
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation: (Gay? Straight? Bi?): Straight
Age: 25
Height: 6'2"
Build (Slim, medium, athletic/toned, large etc): Medium and improving, finally - been hitting those weights :)
Location (Town, state, country): Santa Cruz, California. Proud capital of the banana slug kingdom
Would you date long distance?: I doubt it, but then I may not have met the right person.

Hobbies: Reading (Hard sci-fi mostly, short stories, the odd poem) and writing (though I have almost no actual surviving text to show for it. I'm a perfectionist with an itchy delete key finger). I always enjoy learning about computer and internet-related stuff. I'm studying up to take various certifications (CCNA, MSCP, that sorta thing). I'm an aviation and space fanatic. I'm going to buy a plane someday even if it bankrupts me. I still want to be an astronaut when I grow up.
Occupation: My job is to keep a countertop from floating away by weighing the register on it down with cash. When there's no money to be found, I lean on it instead.
Religious?: Kinda/sorta/not really. I was raised Jewish, went to sunday school, Bar Mitzvahed, yadda yadda - but my experiences have in general not given me much hope for ever feeling like I want to really participate in any organized religion. The closest I ever really feel to anything like communing with a higher power is when I read about astronomy and cosmology.
Music?: All kinds. Reggae. "Alternative" (yes, I know, 'alternative to what?') the moodier the better. I like Coldplay and stuff that sounds vaguely like Coldplay. I really like electronic music, if it was composed by someone not simply trying to fill 10 minutes with a danceable drum loop. Plus a little of everything else - old school R&B, modern rock, classical...
Living situation: With my parents, regrettably. I hate it, but housing prices are insane where I live. I'm workin' on it.
Would you describe yourself as a homebody?: Yes, but I wish I wasn't. If this anxiety thing hadn't come along and screwed up my social development, I bet I'd be at a rave or something every night.
Any particular SA fears? (Phones, crowds, public speaking etc): Mostly speaking to new people, either on the phone or in person. I really get petrified around young women in particular.
Do you drink/do drugs/smoke?: I drink occasionally, when I really feel like I need one. As for drugs, my mental landscape is quite interesting enough as it is, thank you.
Do you mind other people drinking/doing drugs/smoking?: Not so long as it's done responsibly.
How about kids? (Got any now? Want any in the future?): No kids - not that I've ever had the opportunity to produce any. I'm not sure if I'd want them in the future. I do love kids, but I'm definitely not ready to be a father yet.

Appearance? (Photo and/or description): I should've waited to take a photo I suppose. I have dark orangish blondish hair and blue eyes. I'm pretty unremarkable looking I suppose. I'll post a pic in awhile.
Contact details? (Email address, AIM sn, MSN messenger etc.): AIM is "sporkflight," e-mail address should be in my LJ profile.
Anything else you want to say?: I'm sure I will approximately 7 seconds after I hit the "Update" button.

I am looking for: Someone who's fun to talk to. I don't care about age much, but I am looking for someone I can actually meet in person and get out of the house with.

bouncy_penguin
Hey people, thought I'd jump in and join in with the fun.

Name and/or nick-name: James, Nozzer, bouncy_penguin
Gender: Male
Sexual Orientation (Gay? Straight? Bi?): Straight, more or less
Age: 22, though I had to think about it, it still sounds like someone older than me
Height: 5'11"
Build (Slim, medium, athletic/toned, large etc): Scrawny
Location (Town, state, country): Exeter, UK
Nationality (if different): Boringly purebred British as far back as I've ever bothered to trace my ancestry
Would you date long distance?: I don't especially have dating in mind, I'm really just looking to get to know some new people who I can get on with, and I often find that easier to do online than in person (for obvious reasons, given where we are). Company of any sort and at any distance would be nice, to be honest.

Also, I'd like to take this moment to interject and say that I've rambled on at much greater length about myself already over here. (If the link doesn't work for you, it's bouncy_penguin at OkCupid.) (Also, hyperlinks appear to blend very well into the background here, but you get the idea.) That also has pictures, so that's probably the place to go if I haven't bored you already.

Hobbies: I'm a computer and maths geek, I read a lot, write a bit when I get round to it, watch too much TV and films, listen to a lot of music, don't play as many computer games as I used to, I play poker when I can find anyone willing to stump up some cash... I can juggle which sometimes wins me a few cool points.
Occupation: Student, in the fourth and final year of a Masters in maths. And four years is starting to feel like quite long enough, thankyou. About time to move on and find some office to sit and crunch numbers in for forty years.
Religious?: Agnostic atheist. I know your god's made up, but I can't prove it universally.
Music?: Is good. I used to play piano, but I guess this is more about what I listen to. There's plenty of classical and death metal on my iPod, I'm scattered all over the place.
Living situation (alone? With parents? With room/housemates? etc): Currently with Uni housemates. Then back home with parents again for an indeterminate time, then off somewhere else on my own, quite possibly.
Would you describe yourself as a homebody?: Not really, but that's not to say I'm absolutely not one.
Any particular SA fears? (Phones, crowds, public speaking etc): I've always had trouble pinning down quite how it works with me. Phones I'm not good with at all. When there's a conversation already going on between more than one of my friends, I find it very hard to get involved, and tend to feel nervous if the attention suddenly turns to me, but one-on-ones I can often do well. I open up a lot more in IM conversation. With crowds or strangers, I tend to be alright if I'm sticking to something predictable and prepared - I can ask for help in a shop or at a ticket kiosk, I can give presentations to a roomful of fellow students and teachers so long as I'm prepared and know what I'm doing. But I often can't even chip in when I'm sitting round having tea with two housemates.
Do you drink/do drugs/smoke?: Nope. Not never, but it's an anomaly if/when I ever do.
Do you mind other people drinking/doing drugs/smoking?: Nope, but if they overdo it then I might prefer to keep my distance.
How about kids? (Got any now? Want any in the future?): Nope, and not really keen. I think I'll just get a cat.

Appearance? (Photo and/or description): Try the OkCupid profile, I can't be bothered finding somewhere to host them again.
Contact details? (Email address, AIM sn, MSN messenger etc.): Nozzer42 on AIM, do say hi, or drop me a comment here. I'll tend to chat to anyone with whom I share a sense of humour.

Socially Anxious Singles

nervous_neuron
Name and/or nick-name: Kris
Gender: Female
Sexual Orientation (Gay? Straight? Bi?): Asexual. Though, I am 20, therefore at the 'I'm confused about my sexuality' stage. So, I don't like to say asexual, and that's it, perhaps I'm just late at developing. I won't go into a whole discussion here.
Age: 20
Height: 170cm
Build (Slim, medium, athletic/toned, large etc): Lanky
Location (Town, state, country): I live in Australia. More specific, in Melbourne, Victoria.
Nationality (if different): Both of my parents are Hungarian, I was born in Australia.
Would you date long distance?: Ofcourse. I've never done it before though.

Hobbies: I recommend looking on my LJ user info if really interested. I'm mainly interested in neuroscience. My main field of interest is in the bunch of nuclei in your brain, near your temporal lobe, known as the Amygdala. I'm interested mainly in emotions, and how biochemical and cellular processes effect them. Ofcourse, I love my psychopathology :) Out of the brain and into the world, I love video gaming. I love nintendo, and at the moment, world of warcraft. I also like fiction writing. I'm not actually good at writing, but what I like is comming up with plots and stories, because I have a bit of an overactive imagination. Though, I don't finish my stories. I also like cartooning. Stuff like comics.

Occupation: Second year doing a bachelor of behavioural neuroscience.

Religious?: At the moment, not really. Agnostic. But I was really into it, mainly philosophically. I went to a catholic school. My beliefs match most closely with unitarian universalism. I used to love religion, but for some reason, I don't read about it as much these days.

Music?: Mainly rock, and I'm not a fan of slow music. I don't really like R&B that much either, and rap... meh, it's okay. I'm not too picky with songs. But my favourite type of song is angsty lyrics, and happy (to me) music. At the moment, I like the Dressdan dolls, System of a Down, Panic! At the Disco and stuff like that. But most songs are random, I don't stick to bands that much.

Living situation With my mum

Would you describe yourself as a homebody?: What's a homebody? :P

Any particular SA fears? (Phones, crowds, public speaking etc): Okay, here is where we get funny. I am quiet contradictory, since I'm an extroverted introvert. Let me explain.
-First, the phone. I hate answering it, I hate calling people on it. I rarely call people, and when I do, I feel nervous about it. I try to put it off. If it's a friend, it becomes a bit better, since I know I will get a good conversation. Then I can yap for ages. I feel stupid for being nervous to ring the person, since they normally end up calling me. I feel bad for that.
-Crowds: What makes me the most nervous is having to go out alone, to a crowded place. Prime example is shopping centres. On the other hand I love meeting new people who show interest in me. That really boosts my self esteem. And I like night clubbing. Probably because I feel that no one is really judging me. Yep, that's my funky logic. Besides I go with friends. I'd die if I had to go alone!
-The 'net: I feel most comfortable on forums, and the best on livejournal. I feel like I can 'open up soul to show everyone' without thinking twice about it. But IM... *gulp*. I rarely go on msn, but sometimes, I make myself go. I'm slowly getting used to it.
-Eye contect. No, I will not make eye contact with you, though I will look in your general direction, probably your feet. It makes me feel very uncomfortable.
-Public speaking: I thought for the fun of it, I'll mention that I love public speaking! Back in highschool, I was on the debating team! I also liked acting, mainly improvisation, because I can't memorise lines. And, this is why I want to be a lecturer. Though, I still get very nervous, but it's a good kind of nervous. Bit of an adrenaline rush there - lol, how dull must my life be. Also, I work in a deli. Customer Service. Though, I like it, I have a uniform on, and I become a different person. More confident. I can talk to people, because it's my job. On the other hand, I hate getting served. Makes me nervous. Again, another thing I don't like about shopping.
Altering - my comfort zone likes to expand and contract like the universe. Some days, I get so anxious that I skip out on going to uni or work from the mere thought of other people just looking at me making me really nervous (this behaviour is what scored the diagnosis), other times, I can't wait to go somewhere, or to talk to someone.

Do you drink/do drugs/smoke?: Drink when I go clubbing, or when others are.

Do you mind other people drinking/doing drugs/smoking?: Depends. I don't really mind, unless it's making you sick, or you are doing it because you are sick. For example, trying to use drugs to self medicate bipolar, for example. I don't mind it in the "that's sooo wrong" kind of way, more in the ''I don't like to see you hurt yourself" kind of way.

How about kids? Don't have, don't really care about having.

Appearance? Under hereCollapse )

Contact details? (Email address, AIM sn, MSN messenger etc.): msn me on shinkei_is@hotmail.com IF YOU CAN, buwahaha! Or aim nervous neuron. Best way, though, is LJ friending me, and talking to me on there, and then sniping me on MSN if you see me on.

Anything else you want to say?:Bllllargh! I guess another thing is I act differently around different people. If I'm with an anxious person, I tend to me more calm. That's quiet strange of me. Probably the fact that the person is just as nervous as me makes me feel better.

I AM LOOKING FOR: [this section is just a guide. You can write completely your own thing if you want! But sometimes a little inspiration can be helpful] I can't be bothered with this question. Besides, I don't even know what the hell I'm looking for!

Someone you feel comfortable talking to, being with you, whose company you genuinely enjoy. Everything else is secondary.
