Worked offshore for a while, then around the US, got back in April, looking to reconnect, for social to serious:
-Casual: for fun, up for pretty much anything with anyone. Nighttime hikes, road trips, game days and nights--board games, cards, (Bridge?) Singularity, hacker dojo, big band, PEERS, renn faire, exploring ....
More interesting: studied massage for 7 years and worked as a medic, teach me something new, teach me something in general, intimate gatherings to talk about the Singularity or travel, one on one dinners, dance, special events, pride, folsom, maker fairs, renn faire, classical guitar outside by a fire, photography, camping, museums-
Serious: Well, really seriously? Want to long term full time with someone serious and able to commit, have someone I love who loves me, but she likes someone else more, and her time is very limited. Will not hurt her for the world, so its...complicated.
Warm and gentle people make the flowers bloom. Intelligence sets me on fire. Beauty opens the doors to my heart.
Am told I am smart, kind, patient, generous
So, looking for people to go to events with for good company as well as people for romance.
-I'd like to meet someone smarter than me.
-Don't do well in photos... -
- Have good hands--did jewelry for 7 years, massage for several, (Both swedish and Japanese) and was an emt.
-Am a rationalist and a meritocrat.
-Don't really understand racism and sexism. The existence and facts yes, the why, not so well.
-I want to own my own place out in the country, with lots of room for dances and for guests to come and stay for a week or three. Want to get building, Right Now. :}
-I have lots of milage. A few screws and such, trivial compared to people who've really been banged up. But a few scars here and there.
--Enjoy nurturing and being nurtured. :)
--A little whimsical. *Sigh* :}
Find the butterfly's stomp that will change the world for the better. Thats a big deal.
-Lets go to Paris for breakfast, or walk around SF, or the marin headlands, or santa cruz.
-Dance at Fezziwig's Warehouse at Dicken's faire, or build the latest steampunk toys. :}
-Ponder words like falling stars on warm summer nights while the lotus blooms in deep pools of still water.
...when you desired a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it.
--Lois McMaster Bujold—
