My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
(try and overlook my awkward writing style)

I am a tad simple and not an extroverted sort of person.... but still.. I wouldn't say I get troden over easily ;)
It could be Canadian politeness that masks a dangerous Greek low boiling point. (there must be a better way. am working on that last bit.. that's why I'm trying to understand Buddhism see?), the 'euro' streak covers about 43% of me, at least. PS. I am here on a VISA, so please marry me. ;)

If I don't have a partner I fill my free time with sports, sometimes involving a bicycle, running shorts, a frisbee, swim goggles and a yodeling elephant. I have also recently been converted to rock climbing.... the East Bay religion... although this is something I'm still not that good at. and of course film, music, literature and food and all the ramifications of living in various places.

But I would like to improve with age, and try to be more mindful and think of the bottom half first, who slip away in the enjoy-yourself-to-the-max-attitude. I would like to want more than just wineries, Tahoe, surfing and constant traveling etc... and it is something I'm working on again..

I am idealistically drawn to the radical fringe. I do NOT want to be part of any 'bewildered herd' (Walter Lippman, may he rot, sorry Buddha)... even though you couldn't guess it: no tats, bike with carrier or recent dumpster diving. I think I can sense a Heritage of Social Struggle in me, but I over-romanticize that a bit. When I do hear about people sacrificing selflessly for others I get a baseball sized lump of emotion in my gullet though.

I have a strange fascination for the Spanish Civil War and the Brigadas Internacionales. Otherwise... I am olive, sea, and coffee
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My career is in research science, doing some very nitpicky and focused tinkering. I'm still trying to make it work for me. But I would like to be able to come out and think bigger too.

Trying to stay fit, go outside and camp in the forest, climb or cycle or run or swim and stay involved in all this wonderful social justice work in the Bay area.

I can also be a single-speed-cycling thrift-store-trashing hipster and/or movie snob.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Breakfast. Fixing things, extravaGANDAsizing projects. Putting blinders on to avoid sleep and food. I'm also good at being a lazy turd and rolling out of bed at one. Funny that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am *polite* and *quiet*. No one would ever know I grew up yelling my head off! Mitera, SKASMOS! the second thing would be that I can be a little judgemental, which is why I am trying to learn about Buddhism!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
1. BOOK: well... "The Great War for Civilization" by Robert Fisk. It's heavy, you can defend yourself with it. FEEL the force of political-history.
2. MOVIE: "The Third Man". Why? well.. for things like Vienna, Double 'X' R-au-nch and CU-ckoo clocks
3. MUSIC: Music is for heathens. I listen to it all and retch.
4. Animals rock! but not as FOOD.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Stop! Buddhists also find a ridiculous amount of things to number. It's getting intolerable!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what was I here for, what did I want?
(yes yes a red-hot soulmate)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
if luck is with me? packing all my camping gear.
if not... still at work.. then going home to clean up cat-ate-grass barf.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
that is a bit of an oxymoron.

Who I'm looking for????
Other than Compassion there aren't many things I need in you. Thinking about someone to be with, hmmm, someone that...

- doesn't mind being athletic
- is childishly curious (we have a lot of playtime ahead of us)
- she doesn't think she's already gotten 'somewhere' and knows enough ('En ida oti ouden ida' or I can see that I've seen nothing, said by some ol Mediterranean so and so).
- is antsy. Jah, some choatic energy now and then!
- ...but outwardly people would still always think that she is: 'mature'
- is thinking about starting a family (a likeminded childish clan)

(maybe she describes herself as a renaissance woman? a fit mind in a fit body?)
