I graduated from college with a B.A in English, with a minor in Anthropology. I'll be taking time off at home, then going to graduate school for archaeology. I'm also considering the Peace Corps for a time if I still can't decide what subfield of archaeology I want to study yet. I'm in an awkward transition phase in my life right now and I'm trying to find more purpose and meaning.
I'm in a constant battle with myself, trying to appreciate the beauty and richness of the world while despairing at the cruelty and callousness of so many of those who inhabit it. I am very prone to existential crises.
I love meeting new people and experiencing all that life has to offer. Recently, I've become even more aware of life's briefness and I don't want to let a single opportunity pass me by. I'm a bit of a hedonist, taking the most pleasure out of simple things and I'm very straightforward about what I like. Things like beer and burgers, summer rainstorms, a comfortable bed, and yellow roses make me quite happy. I intensely enjoy the arts in all forms and want to attend more concerts, shows, and exhibits when I have the means to. I also really want to begin traveling again. I traveled overseas quite a bit in high school, but as I've gotten older, the chances to venture abroad have diminished significantly.
I try very hard to treat everyone I meet with compassion, understanding, and acceptance. Treat me kindly and I will do the same.
Intelligence is incredibly important to me. I'm looking for people who are thoughtful and focus on the world outside of the themselves, who have opinions and independent ideas. Being an English major, I am very annoyed by people who are too lazy to write in coherent sentences. Please do not message me in "text speak."
An important note: I tend to be polyamorous, meaning I develop genuine feelings for more than one person at the same time. This does not mean I'm looking for random hookups, or that I'm a slut. I understand that this is not for everyone. If you do not feel prepared to work through this with me, please move on. DO NOT MESSAGE ME FOR A HOOKUP OR ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE. I didn't think I would ever have to include this in my profile, but it has happened enough to bother me. This being said, I do eventually want to settle down when I meet the right person. I'm not dismissing any options at this point in time.
Another important note: I fully support equality for all and am I strong advocate of the LGBTQ community. If you are racist, homophobic, transphobic, or bigoted in any way, do not contact me.
Sorry single fathers, I'm not looking to date you. I do not like most children and do not intend to ever have any.
Other than that, I look for people with a romantic sensibility, who can be both lighthearted and serious when appropriate. I also appreciate anyone who can teach me something new, views the world with curiosity and reverence, and is anxious to experience as much in life as possible. A bit of geekiness doesn't hurt either. In terms of a "type," I am very attracted to unconventional, alternative style, particularly those who do not subscribe to the traditional binary of sexuality and gender. I really, really, REALLY love long hair, well-done body modifications, and glasses. ;)
