My self-summary
I'm a funny person who believes in kindness, love, and living creatively.

I like to communicate openly and for my partner and I to feel free to talk about anything, no matter how silly or irrational or heavy or anything else. I think I basically wrote that idea here before, somewhere in my profile. This here is just an impromptu clearing of some thoughts I'm having today.

As far as what I'm "looking for," I guess the simplest answer is that I'd love a girlfriend in my life. The whole truth is not simple, though, because I do not require that every woman I go on a date with or spend some intimate time with be a potential "serious" relationship. I really view human relationships in general as just too varied and layered and complex for me to waste time perceiving or labeling them in categories as rudimentary as "relationship" and "fling," or whatever other Aristotelian options people may be inclined to rest their perceptions on.

Sorry for the clunky sentence there. The above is all first-draft stuff off the cuff. I'll probably delete it soon, unless it starts to seem well-received, or I just forget about my okc for a while. And now, ladies and women who don't necessarily identify as "ladies," here is my standard, more polished profile content:

I love caves, theatre, my bicycle, books, thought and consciousness, astronomy, ontology, camping, women, movies, love, music, acting, and improv. I love to write. I'm a co-producer with an Austin theatre company, and I play a lot of improv with a couple of troupes. I even tour sometimes with one of them; I love to visit different cities and perform in them--or not perform, and just enjoy them.

I seek out beauty and authentic moments. I find some kind of joy in finding the beauty that is kicked around and overlooked and under-appreciated in this scary and lovely world.

I've never been married, never cheated on anybody, never contracted any std's, and I've never procreated... so for any of those events, you have an opportunity to be my first!

I love being able to be fiercely and creatively and dynamically myself with another person. Despite the popular wisdom that we must all be independent and nobody needs anybody else to be complete, I am happier when I can share my life experiences with someone. That doesn't mean I need to be with someone all the time. My partner and I should be free to have our personal space and time whenever we want. Freedom is good stuff. And I think every relationship has its own dynamic identity and "rules," and it's always good to talk openly with each other about that, and about nearly everything, too.
What I’m doing with my life
Most recently, I'm working on getting back on my own two feet, so to speak, after a financially disastrous move to Istanbul, Turkey this year. I moved there to teach English, and it was a very interesting experience, but ultimately it didn't work out as well I'd hoped. I'm looking for employment in Austin, but staying with my mom in Corpus Christi for the rest of 2015, probably. Hopefully, I'll be back in the swing of things sooner than 2016. Ultimately, all I really want is to afford a livelihood from doing what I love: acting, writing, producing, all the possible creative stuff.
I’m really good at
... whistling and humming at the same time. Kissing. Copy editing. Camping. Driving safely. Making puns. Listening to sounds and people.

I'm also really good at being funny. It's the truth, I am definitely good at making people laugh, but I've often been reticent to say that in this profile, because I've never been able to make my profile funny.
The first things people usually notice about me
I just wanted to reserve this space for beaming about my cat Amaya. She is a young black cat I found four Halloweens ago at Austin Pets Alive. She makes tiny little "mao" sounds, unless she wants someone to open a door for her, in which case her "mao" sounds are louder. She is a complete sweetheart. I love her.

TV Shows:
This was my facebook post the day after netflix released season 4 of Arrested Development:
"I just wanted to say here real quick, especially before any complaints of sour, thwarted expectations started showing up around here, because they often do in this forum, that I saw all 15 episodes of Arrested Development, and, I dunno, maybe because I was in a good mood following a nice bike ride, maybe because I was watching with a good friend, maybe because I was delightfully stoned a great deal of the time, maybe because we were watching on a 40-something inch TV, and maybe because we prepared a bunch of delicious chocolate-dipped frozen bananas for snacks, and maybe it was all just a perfect storm of context for enjoyment, but I really loved the show, and after the first three episodes, which I consider to be mostly set-up and exposition for the most complex "sit" ever devised for a "sitcom," I was laughing heartily and consistently through the remaining episodes of the season, and that was really very satisfying, and I give this unusual pop sensation of a series resurrection at least an A, if not an A+."

The six things I could never do without
bicycle music film trees rain books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
... who I am and what I'm doing here and where I'm going and how to keep growing .
On a typical Friday night I am
In a show, or seeing a show, or watching samurai films.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like boobs. That is the most private thing I am willing to admit here, and at the same time, you already knew that before I said it. Boobies.
You should message me if
it seems right.

I'm including a kind of epilogue for my profile here. This is like, if you want to know me in a nutshell, these are the basics: I love acting, laughing, dancing, Radiohead, rain, road trips, hiking, biking, marijuana, watching movies, all kinds of playing with words and language, and intimate, creative, meaningful moments with people I care about.

If that sounds good, then tell me something.
