Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am so much more than a self-summary.
I am a poststructuralist building my life w/ words.
I am evolutionary.
I practice the art of happiness daily, & I fully believe that
there is more good than bad on this planet, & I think that the
only reason anyone could disagree w/ that statement would be
because they are looking at all the wrong things in all the wrong
If you need more convincing about what a beautiful place this
universe is, read anything by Joseph Campbell or Rumi.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am staying in the moment, gaining wisdom from the trees &
befriending the sea. We are all beings who, at our core, are made
of eternal energy, & I think we are our own source of
I am laughing, & I am living, & I am breathing.
But mostly, I'm trying to find Carl Sagan's soul because I want his
ghost to make sweet, cosmic love to me.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Everything--especially humility & modesty.
We are here to live, laugh, love, & give so I do these w/ all
of myself, & I do them unconditionally. (I learned how to do
most of these from a dog, & no, I don't find that at all
I'm really good at thinking, & I'm also really good at
reminding myself to remember the Alamo but then forgetting why I
needed to remember it in the first place.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Are that I am a grrl, that I am funny as fuck, & that awesome
pumps through my veins, but...I don't really know what goes on in
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The last two movies I saw that were absolutely worth recommending
are Beasts of the Southern Wild & Never Let Me Go. Anything
Michel Gondry does is fabulous. I like indie films, love comedies,
& I am obsessed w/ documentaries, but think most action films
are lame--because they are so trite. I want laughter,
contemplation, creativity, & art to be a part of my talkies.
(Yes, I am 105 years old. Really.)
Dave Eggers is my favorite author. Jonathan Safran Foer is my
half-favorite-author-that-comes-next. I find poems, poets, &
poetry itself in almost everything. I need words to create beauty
for me everyday.
In terms of music, I am a sucker for banjos...but my musical tastes
are too extensive & eclectic to be summed up here, so let's
just say I have awesome taste.
I watch The Daily Show & The Colbert Report regularly, & I
listen to true crime documentaries while I'm at work because I find
serial killers--& the awful things man can do to his fellow
man-- absolutely fascinating. No, not in the
cool-I'd-like-to-try-that way, but in the
how-could-anyone-fucking-do-that way. Again, no, I don't find this
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Love, nature, music, art, laughter & learning, traveling &
writing...& joy & pain.
That's six, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Stars, space, art, life, purpose, meaning, how to be a better
person & how I can make the world a better place...& then,
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Stressing over stupid shit when I should be drinking, not stressing
over stupid shit because I am drinking, going on psychedelic
journeys, stargazing, dancing, walking the streets alone, or
writing poetry by candlelight.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I loved my dog more than I've ever loved anybody.
I really want aliens to exist, & I would really like it if
they'd just abduct me already.
I'm a big fan of getting drunk & peeing in semi-public places
that are outside. So. Freeing.
I dragged my very Christian preacher's-wife-of-a-mom to San
Francisco's gay pride, ditched her, got drunk, & then found her
later, sleeping on the street like a homeless lady. That isn't at
all private, & I don't know why I just relayed that other than
to say, that woman knows how to sleep.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If we're under an 85% match, you probably shouldn't message me.
I've gone out w/ people who weren't, & we had too little in
common for it to be worthwhile. I'm not trying to be rude, I'm just
trying to be practical & save us both a little time &
energy. (So really, I'm being pretty damn polite.)
I'm interested in people who are social & are actually down to
meet in person. I'm not really interested in internet friends. I
like real interactions. Let's get to the substance of life,
If you're a writer, message me now. Please. I host a weekly writing
group at my house, & I want to drain you of yr creative juices
& leave you in pain. Or...I want us to create things together
in beautiful peace & harmony...
For those of you who aren't the cumguzzling, douchebaggy, date
rapist type, there are no ifs. Just fucking message me.
Just know this before you do:
My openness when it comes to sex & enjoying it & loving it
doesn't mean that is all I am interested in. I am over one night
stands, & booty calls no longer do it for me. You won't get
that from me. I want more than just a fuck buddy. Yes, I want great
sex. No, I don't want that to be our only exchange. Yes, I want to
connect w/ you as a person, like who you are, enjoy yr company
& do more w/ you than just bang. No, I don't think a
relationship or commitment need to be part of our exchange. I'm
just looking for someone that stimulates me emotionally &
physically, intellectually & spiritually.
I'm interested in genuinely good people w/ an undeniable streak of
I don't believe in norms. So let's be creative. Let's fucking make
