I'm affectionate and usually light-hearted even though I think life is pretty much an epic battle and most of us would benefit from a revolution (inside and out) :)
I laugh and smile easily. I really appreciate trees and natural beauty in general, and yes, I have dreads, but I swear I am not a hippie! Actually, sometimes I'm not sure. Anyway, I enjoy hiking and camping, yoga and dancing, music and cooking good food, and a number of other things that will put me in a meditative state, like running in the greenbelt, which is one of my new favorite things!
I like to think of myself as an exceptionally rational person, but I try not to limit reason to the empirical, the obvious, or the comfortable, so some of my interests may seem strange. I'm a dabbler, pretty interested in most things at least for a little while; I read regularly, fiction and non-fiction, random internet searches, text or research relevant to my work. Besides having a general sense of curiosity and wonder about the nature of reality and life itself, I'm most interested in human potential and related subjects--psychology, interpersonal communication, metaphysics, holistic/alternative health, nutrition, science, religion, spirituality...also, I'm a massage therapist and am absolutely in love with my work. I'm currently building my private practice.
What I'm looking for in a partner...I believe that mutual physical attraction and chemistry are essential, but beyond that here are a list of adjectives that might be helpful :)
Honest, self-aware, positive-ish (I am no Debbie Downer, please don't be a Buzz Killington!), curious, affectionate, , expressive (I like to talk, but I also like to listen and learn!), self-sufficient, reasonable, kind, and authentic (as in capable of being your natural self)...I'd like to get to know someone who is content where they are, but understands that personal growth is essential to happiness and would like someone to grow with. If this sounds anything like you and you're interested, don't be afraid to message me!
Ok, I won't be so lazy, I'll offer a small slice...
Books: Currently reading the Psychology of the Body. I'm almost always reading something non-fiction, these days. But I love a good novel. Standard favorites: Atlas Shrugged, The Wheel of Time, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, almost anything Stephen King--especially It and the Stand. That man can write the shit out of an epic novel.
Movies: 40 Year-old Virgin, Eternal Sunshine, Death Proof, Tropic Thunder
Shows: Dexter, Supernatural, The Office, Arrested Development, Scandal
Music: Bonobo, Stevie Wonder, Tool, Fiona Apple, Theivery Corporation, Beyonce, and almost anything that will compel me to shake my ass. And, honestly, my ass is not that discerning :)
Food: Anything delicious and nutritious (this definitely includes meat, as far as I'm concerned) anything of the Asian persuasion, seafood, roasted turkey legs are heavenly...
You understand the difference between a conversation and talking at someone!
You are generally content with yourself and are looking for an excuse to be more contented.
You understand the true nature of reality and want to teach me your ways ;)
