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.
Books: Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, His Dark Materials, Maniac Magee, The Giver
Shows: Sense8 and Daredevil are my current favorites. Buffy, Doctor Who (pre-Moffat era), House, New Girl, Firefly, Colbert Report, Lost, Downton Abby, Supernatural.
Music: Haim, Vampire Weekend, Mumford and Sons, Arcade Fire, Fleet Foxes, Santigold, Frank Sinatra, Lady Gaga, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Food: Anything with lots of flavor, nothing boring or safe except for my Mother's pasta, although that isn't boring, just comforting. I consider myself to be a foodie. I think most of my spare cash goes towards dining, travel and art supplies. I try to eat healthy and keep away from processed foods.

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.
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. :)
