Beware, there are lots of words:
I'm functionally poly/nonmonogamous at the moment with a few amazing people I'm dating locally, a mutually-non-primary East Coast partner and a kink "play partner" here and there sometimes. I'm interested in finding a compatible partner for a primary long-term relationship, but I'm open to great dates with more awesome humans, too. Definite preference for people who are open to connecting on a deeper level, affection, and all that jazz, should things lean that way, though.
I've recently been described as tenacious and diligent, and I would not disagree. I work hard, have endured many trials over the last two years working my ass off to survive independently in SF, and now I'm seeking companion(s) to add more fun and spontaneity back to my downtime.
I don't Instagram because not everything looks right in square. I did just upload a bunch of other photos that make me happy, though. But then I realized that I have wayy too many.. where should I share them?
I carry $2 in quarters at all times in case of a pinball emergency, and visiting new-to-me National Parks probably excites me more than it does you.
In progress. I'll add things as they come to me..
I have a very lengthy autobiography of a profile here that has existed for many years, but I thought I'd try something new, so this one is a little more raw..
85% of the time I am highly analytical, 15% I'm completely oblivious.
^I'm trying to change this a bit and add a buffer of "relaxed and present" to the middle
Nature is my religion.
Honesty, integrity, and not being an asshole are my morals.
I like people who are introspective.
Artfully posing nude on driftwood is one of my all-time favorite activities (mostly retired).
I like horror films [and other genres, but horror is the one that most people don't share]..
I am 4 parts mountains, 3 parts beach, and 1 part huddled under a heavy pile of soft blankets.
As a kid, I played nearly every sport available to me at least once (but nothing really stuck for long, though I would love to join a casual soccer league in SF!) I was a Girl Scout for nearly a decade, a Rainbow Girl (Freemasons but for girls), and a national-level competitive cheerleader. I've worn lots of hats over the years and am trying to find my West Coast tribe(s), having left one on the East Coast.
I like to use handmade [wheel-thrown ceramic] dishware and hand-blown drinking glasses. Preferably those made by my own hands (though I'd imagine gifted pieces from loved ones would be pretty rad, too.)
I need intense experiences on a regular basis to keep me level/calm me (be that a strenuous day hike, some time watching/hearing the endless waves or staring into the distance from a scenic mountaintop, or stimulating and challenging activities through kink)..
I just returned from a spontaneous 19-day, 8300+-mile, solo looping cross-country road trip.
From a small town deep in central Appalachia, I moved around a bit in adulthood- Pittsburgh<3 - more than once, Florida (Tampa), and Baltimore before my adventures in SF..
