Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Seeking mutual stimulation--intellectual, emotional,
spiritual, and creative (aside from the obvious ;-)
Not into instant hook-ups--I love sex as much as the
next guy, but I like to get to know someone first.
Assuming there's some initial attraction, I want to
connect with our hearts and minds, and then the rest
will likely follow . . .
Part of what gets me going is someone who is smart,
articulate, and friendly.
We're both (you and I) socially conscious and considerate of
others, enjoy irreverence and humor, engaging our minds as well as
Self-awareness and open communication are more
important to me than sharing all the same interests,
although I'm also looking for a basic compatibility in
lifestyle and values--like honesty, most likely monogamy,
and the willingness to deal openly with differences.
Me: brown hair, blue-green eyes, German/English
background, cleanshaven, 5'9", light body hair,
fair complexion, healthy lifestyle, work out regularly

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in social services, and also spend a good amount of time on
various writing and web projects (both fiction and
I've been involved with a study/practice group for a style of
meditation I can tell you more about if interested, but fairly
eclectic and not into dogma or rigid religious beliefs.
Once in a while, I like to immerse myself in other worlds, even if
they're outside my usual range of comfort (or competence!).
Especially with some element of mindfulness or creative
This past year, I went to a software workshop for my website; took
bread baking, Thai, and vegan cooking classes; played in some
singing, song-writing, and improv workshops; attended a Magic
convention, a gay summer camp, massage practice, and went to a
Buddhist meditation retreat.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Listening, trying to understand the other person's point of

plus I make a mean vegan cookie (and home-made ice cream!)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Kinda quiet, though I can also be friendly with a quirky sense of
humor once I get to know you--
Leading a healthful lifestyle is important to me: regular exercise,
eating well, and getting plenty of sleep--
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Enjoy multi-cultural events--I've lived in Europe,
speak some German, studied Spanish while staying with
a family in Guatemala, went to grad school in Hawaii.
Other interests: outdoors--hiking, biking, and
camping/backpacking; swimming/snorkling; arts,
psychology, and meditation; writing and occasional
performing; tend more toward independent films
and plays; occasional music is great, but prefer
that it not be on all the time; enjoy travel and friends.
As you might have guessed, I tend toward vegan, but
you don't have to~

Creative activities of one sort or another~
Making plans, but also letting life unfold in a natural way--
how to be content, enjoy living in the present moment, and
connections with others--especially that one special guy!
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
catching up with myself, unless I'm dating someone, then I hope
we'll be getting together, or on our way to some adventure ~
