section of my profile*
I take pride in the fact that I have unintentionally lived in the
home towns of some of my favorite NPR shows (Prairie Home
Companion, Car Talk, and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me).
I'm here mostly because I am keeping myself open to the possibility
of love (in either the form of friendship or romance), even though
I find it difficult to connect with someone online. Chemistry can
only really be experienced in person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently enjoying my well earned summer break. Otherwise working
in the city near Logan Square. I teach visual art at an elementary
school. I currently live in Elmwood Park but will move into the
city this summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Finding the good in people and situations. Conversing at length
about random philosophical stuff. Unconsciously giggling to myself
at inappropriate times when I remember something funny.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Someone told me once that it looks like I know what I am doing all
the time; do not be fooled by this...

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
walking around outdoors
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The intersections between art and psychology and just visual
culture in general.
My friends, family and loved ones.
Politics, playing devil's advocate.
Color - How beautiful, intriguing, fleeting and relative color is,
and the science behind it. Because color is just a wave of light
and light is universally fascinating.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a good movie with a glass of wine.

You have managed to read my entire profile and have a filled out
profile of your own for me to read.
I am looking for someone who is a friend first, someone I can
trust, respect and adore.
The asexual/demisexual thing is for real. I enjoyed sex with one
long term partner, but we were connected intimately emotionally and
I consider that circumstance to be the exception to the rule, not
the norm. Even in that relationship, I still desired sex less than
my partner did. I could easily live without sex for the rest of my
life and be perfectly content. Do I experience emotional, sensual,
aesthetic attraction? yes! and enthusiastically! But if you are
expecting someone who will regularly initiate sex then I'm not the
right person. If you are hoping for a deep emotional connection and
down the road someone who will occasionally enjoy connecting
sexually, then I'm your girl. I've never been in an open or poly
relationship, but may consider it with the right people (a.k.a.
people who are interested in it for emotional reasons, NOT sexual
ones. I'm not interested in threesomes) I will only read messages
that address me by my first name, Anna, so I know that you have
read this paragraph. All others will be deleted. Sorry if you are
an amazing cool person and read this paragraph without thinking
twice about reading it before messaging me. You are wonderful. I
hope you are blessed with the best parking spots and/or public
transportation that always arrives on time. :)
