If you want a response, glance at my disclaimer before writing !
I'm less likely to respond to generic messages like:
'Hi how are you.' or 'What up sexy?' or 'Gee, you are interesting'
I AM likely to respond to humor &/or intelligence (:
You can demonstrate this by writing a coherent sentence….
maybe even a few in a row (:
when someone writes to me,
i often compare our OK cupid Q & A
(especially the ones with explanations)
if you see "Ya'all got issues"
instead of "the two of us",
it usually means red flags…
…As far as timing and responses to emails, i do not have any automatic expectations of anyone... nor do I like them placed on me…
…. i do not have time to become pen pals with everybody who writes to me but i will be genuine and honest in my responses (:
Also, I am not currently seeking out any new sexual/romantic partners…
…so "Why are you on a 'dating' website ?!?", you ask?
Well, the conversations I participate in can provide:
1) Connection… ( w/current friends & anyone
interested in logic & reason, skepticism, liberty, etc )
(i've had many amusing conversations here on ok cupid)
3) Stimulating Conversation…
(meeting curious individuals who want to explore the Non Aggression Principle & possibly pointing em in the direction of stuff that helped me understand the logic & reason, skepticism, liberty stuff)
thanks for reading (:
MY SELF SUMMARY:
I am a bit on the unconventional side ...
my physical appearance:
i am tattooed, dreadlocked, tallish-for-a-chick, muscular...
my mental/emotional makeup:
I am empathetic, genuine, slow to anger creative & skeptical
also 'self full' (as opposed to either selfish OR selfless)
I am not a big fan of labeling a person...
... all too often, labels can threaten possibilities for connection with what is alive in that person at that moment in time.
When one person sees/interacts with another person and says:
"oh, they're just a __, I know what a ___ thinks"
then it is easy to make assumptions about that person based on your preconceived notion of what a _____ is or believes.
Labels can often result in an 'enemy image' when seeing another individual as 'the other'... they can produce an 'us' vs 'them' mentality...
If I was told I 'had to' pick a label for myself,
i would be concerned
about the baggage that comes with the label…
and I could not just pick just one...
I'm an artist, a philosopher, a poly-atheist, a freethinker,
an Ignostic … (yes, with an 'i'...not a typo),
…and i am a 'humanist'
(as opposed to calling myself either a 'feminist' or …'masculist' ? ),
…I am also a soft determinist / Compatibilist and a liberty minded individualist rather than a statist collectivist...
as well a voluntaryist, and an anarchist...
I like honesty and I enjoy clear communication. I do not enjoy conversations where vague abstractions are used to avoid talking about what is real and true...
----to sum it up...I have an open mind,
but not so open that my brain will fall out!
...or that pseudo-science, religious dogma, statist propaganda and other bs falls in!
STRIKING THE ROOT :
Do you remember those word associations from those tests in school?
.......here's one for ya:
voluntaryism (aka anarchy) is to Government
like Atheism is to Belief in god(s)
i took the red pill of philosophy and dove down into the rabbit hole (:
... first with gods/religions and then some years later i finally applied that same level of study & skepticism to 'the state'...
ps: i do not hold any god-beliefs…
& I put 'Other' for 'Religion'
because a lack of belief is not a religion!
'Atheism' is a religion, in the same sense that 'bald' is a hair color…
or like…. 'off' is a tv channel...
& I put "laughing about it "…
because I think religious beliefs are laughable…
...i am a non-stamp-collector
as well as a tooth-fairy agnostic... (;
