My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I don't think you've met a kid like me, but here goes...

I thought I wanted a boyfriend after 18 months of being single. I met an amazzzzzing guy who had never dated, and we were so new it started to hurt. I am experienced and don't want a guy who is new or has newness. I'm not sure at this point if I'm ready to date or not. Maybe the right person will sway me.

I am a huge fan of music- mostly dance and progressive trance but my favorite band is The Killers. Avicii is a recent favorite. If you like progressive trance we will get along famously.

I am not a very creative person, and it might be a fatal flaw, but I am definitely outgoing, intense, affectionate, capricious and spontaneous!

I am a political person, I studied politics in college. I am a blue blooded democrat but I don't push my ideas on anyone. Some people might categorize me as a socialist. I am tolerant of all different types of people. When I was younger I wanted to be judge.

I am vain enough to admit that looks matter, though they only go so far. You probably won't like this, but it means that being in physical shape- at least decent shape- is a direct reflection on your values. Taking care of your body is one of my values.

Typically younger guys are cute but we don't have a lot in common. I like a guy around my age, maybe a few years older but not into guys beyond ten years my senior.

I write poetry and read; a hopeless loyal to authors both classic and dead. I have a strong love for existentialism and philosophy in general despite the fact that I disagree with the philosophy of existentialism itself. Anything in art or literature thought provoking is of great interest. I also love architecture; specifically skyscrapers. Very knowledgable about urban issues/policy and I always enjoy discussion.

I am a very affectionate person, ruled by my emotions to a fatal flaw. I am a Gemini sun and moon, if that matters to you, and true to my sign.

I love experiencing new things. I'll try anything twice and I like meeting new people even if I can't remember them a few days later. I am a socialite when it is convenient but I am also a nester. I am a top notch cuddling pro and think with my heart.

A boyfriend might be nice, but I haven't had much luck with them. In fact I don't think they might exist on my level, as I love a twin. I have vain tendencies at times.

I tend to gravitate toward people on the responsible and grounded side even if I am not the most stable person out there.
I have a good combination of book and street smarts.

I have so, so many acquaintances but also many some deep and rooted friendships. I believe in spending a lot of time together but also value some time apart and in our own lives. But, yo, not too much! Love time with my guy.

I am not, not, NOT about a hook-up. Chemistry is huge and if there is any I will know quickly. A bad kisser can ruin things. Monogamy is important to me.

I am spontaneous, free-spirited, and I am told I am addictive and the "fun" friend. I have even been likened to the Bad Idea Bears.

I like to include people in my ranks of friends and welcome new experiences and opportunities. I have soooo many great people around me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I was born and raised in Portland but I have lived in Montana, San Francisco, Denver and Seattle. I am a bartender by trade and also hold a license as a nail technician.

I am high profile and easily recognized. I used to bartend in my current city at some of the gay bars so I am well known. I do not discrimate my friends or acquaintances on the base of their age, wealth or appearance.

Say hi! At least you can make a new and fun friend.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I am also very focused toward anything that teaches me something. I am very passionate about both American and World history and the political system. I am a news junkie and it is the first and last thing I do every day. I have a strong love for Justices Kennedy, Breyer, John-Paul Stevens and Ruth Bader-Ginsburg.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Movies The Stepford Wives, Crash, The Hours, Rosario Tijeras, Personal Velocity, Romie and Michele's High School Reunion, The Point of No Return, Carrie, The Devil Wears Prada.... or anything with a good bitch for a main character. I love bitches.

Television CNN, Court TV, Food Network, Nancy Grace, Lockup, To Catch a Predator.. Cold Case Files.. City Confidential..but my favorite show is American Justice or The People's Court. I'm also a sucker for American Idol. Don't judge!

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) my lesbian besties
2) a couple gay boys who understand and appreciate me
3) politics, though I keep this quiet
4) alcohol. Sorry but I like a drink!
5) cuddles. Much more important than sex
6) love, fleeting and evasive
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
