I am a hard core, sex positive feminist. However, I find it more than a bit disturbing to get a message asking if I want to hook up. Not with you... I want to be intellectually stimulated and challenged, conversation is important to me, and nothing piques my interest more than someone who clearly has a brain, and uses it.
Still with me? Good! I like purple. Nutella is amazing! I own way too many shoes. I am obsessed with my iPhone and never go anywhere without it. I am right handed. I seem shy but won't shut up once you get to know me. I am a grammar and spelling snob. I would love it if you message me to correct a spelling or grammatical error, as it's something I would probably do to someone else's writing if invited.
I am originally from New England but hope to live on the west coast. I value highly walkable cities where most don't drive. I love attending concerts. I highly value art and movies and hope to find friends or partners who enjoy the same.
I have recently started to run, but easily get bored with the treadmill and hope to find running partners. The longest race I have run is an 8k, but I'd love to do a half marathon. I love cycling.
I am highly adventurous. I used to downhill ski and rollerblade. I enjoy snowshoeing, hiking and rock climbing. I dream of biking across the country and skydiving. I love food! I studied French and am obsessed with Paris, French culture, and French-speaking countries. I love to travel and have studied abroad in France. I have also been to Beijing. After graduate school, I am contemplating a trip to Ghana to volunteer.
I like going dancing but am terrible at it. I have tried salsa lessons and enjoyed them.
I am a reformed slob and highly value living in a tidy organized space.
Dog haters need not reply. I have a seeing eye dog, as I am almost totally blind. Don't let this fact deceive you. There are so many myths about blindness, and I can assure you you don't really understand what it would be like to be blind. For me, blindness is merely one characteristic of who I am, not a factor that limits or defines me. I don't let it limit me.
