My self-summary
I moved from Flint, Michigan to Cincinnati in late April 2012, living outside of the Flint area for the first time in my life. I bought my first house June 2013, so I guess I'm staying! I have an old, lovable lap dog and a huge, insane puppy who thinks she is a lap dog. I have a job that I enjoy most of the time and good friends.

I'm geeky and silly and random. I want to eat healthy and local, but find it easier said than done. I was raised a Christian, but am now just confused. I support gay rights. When I get angry my tone has a distinct ring of ebonics (I am from Flint, after all.) I don't want kids and am not terribly interested in dating someone who has them, although I might make an exception for the right guy. I am not adverse to men with piercings or tattoos, so long as he can still look presentable when necessary. I'm open to many ideas and love discussing important topics such as religion and politics. I would love to find someone who also enjoys this and can have a comprehensive discussion, not just defend their side of the aisle while they berate the other. I'm not much of a drinker and have basically outgrown the club scene. I've also grown out of sending inappropriate pictures via text.

I'm looking for a man who is silly, smart, sensitive, sophisticated and sexy. I honestly don't know who the ideal man is. He has common sense and is kind and intelligent. He appreciates the finer things in life but knows how to be silly. He is emotionally and financially stable. He is a bit of a geek and a bit of a hippy. He replies to texts. He isn't a serious religious advocate who is going to try to convert me. I don't have a comprehensive picture, but I'll know him when I see him. I don't need to be in a relationship to be happy and I certainly don't want to be in one that makes my life more complicated, but I'd like to find a good thing :)

To reiterate my body type description - I am a chubby woman. I don't say this because I'm insecure, I'm a beautiful chubby woman ;), but if you're not interested in some extra cushion you should keep looking.

I love music and going to concerts. I love to travel - some of my favorite destinations so far are Washington DC, England, Chicago, New Orleans and Paris. I like to go to sporting events, taking walks, going to the park, visiting new places, photography, museums, crafting, going to the movies, card and board games, festivals, theater, art galleries, markets, playing paintball, arcades, the ballet, poetry, and just hanging out at home. I enjoy playing mmorpg's, organizing and decorating the house, playing with my dogs, watching Netflix and reading at home. I like to think that I have a wide range of interests.

I used to play Roller Derby in Flint, but I'm out now with a jacked-up knee. If you enjoy Derby bouts, that's a major plus.

I appreciate your messages, but if you do send me mail please say something more interesting than "Hi, what's up?" Introduce yourself. Display an actual interest and demonstrate that you did indeed read my profile. Thanks.
What I’m doing with my life
I work full time as an administrator for a financial group and actually like my job most of the time. I went to school at the University of Michigan Flint for Anthropology and graduated with my Bachelors in 2010. I've considered getting my masters so I can teach Anthro at a community college but I have no interest in returning to school atm and am enjoying my job so see no reason to.
I’m really good at
Being a friend, procrastinating, seeing things from different perspectives, hand-eye coordination, being honest, listening, snuggles.

The six things I could never do without
My friends, sunshine, my dogs, my cell phone, good music, quiet time.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My friends, social issues, religion and theology, politics, human behavior, my future, my actions. Also lately: human rights, the institution of marriage, how to eat healthier, which house project to work on next, whether politics is just screwed regardless of who is in office.
On a typical Friday night I am
Relaxing with friends, napping, watching Netflix, screwing around online, etc. Friday is just another night to me, not an excuse to go out and drink.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like beef or beer.
You should message me if
you're intelligent and a good conversationalist, especially if we have something in common that you think we could discuss. =)
