My self-summary
My values:
I'm an intelligent, deep thinking and highly empathetic individual. I care about my impact on others and the planet. I think it’s important to do what you can in your situation to make the world a better place and be considerate and responsible towards others living in it. I believe in representing the downtrodden and opposing violence and injustice.

Why I'm vegan:
I'm particularly passionate about
Animal Rights and Women's Rights. I'm morally opposed to using sentient beings as property/resources/commodities. “The value of a sentient life is not measured in its utility to others, but in its immense, irreplaceable value to the being whose life it is” –Joanna Lucus.

Scientists have declared that non-human animals have the same kind of conscious awareness as humans (which makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint, consciousness is advantageous in keeping one alive! And people seem to forget that humans are animals too!).

In this point in time, it is perfectly possible to live without using other animals for *anything*. We continue to do so only out of habit, convenience or for pleasure. These are not morally justifiable reasons to enslave, torture and/or murder other beings, who value their existence as much as we value ours. Yet we confine and kill over 56 billion land animals worldwide each year for palette pleasure alone (and about 100 billion aquatic animals!). To use animals or consume animal products is needless cruel violence. If we are against slavery/oppression on the basis of an arbitrary factor such as race, gender or age, then it is logically consistent to be against it when it comes to persons of other species too. Being more powerful than another individual/group does not give us the right to treat them as a thing or resource.

I don't agree that humans are superior to to other animals and therefore entitled to privilege over them, any more than men over women, or whites over other races (etc). I believe in respect and equality for all, not in hierarchies of power based on arbitrary factors.

Every sentient being deserves the right to legal personhood, affording them bodily integrity, freedom and protecting them from harm and exploitation. That is what I mean by rights

If you could live in a way that minimises or eliminates harm and still be happy and healthy, then why wouldn't you want to do that? That is why I am Vegan. Veganism isn't simply an objection to the way animals are treated, it is an objection to their *use*: a rejection of speciesism. It doesn't just refer to eating animals, but to owning them as property and using them in any context (lab subject, entertainment, fashion etc). If it's wrong to do it to a human child, it's wrong to do it to a non-human animal.

I'm also highly concerned about the environment and climate change. I'm always trying to reduce my impact. I don't own a vehicle, never fly anywhere and rarely go anywhere I can't walk to! I'm of course vegan (animal agriculture-aka the industrialised slavery of sentient beings-is an ecological disaster that produces more green house gas emissions than all the world's transport combined!-All for products we don't even need!) and I don't intend to breed (human overpopulation is a massive problem).

***********

Me:
I'm highly sensitive , which is a mixed bag, but enables me to enjoy the wisdom that comes from being deeply insightful, reflective, creative/artistic and highly principled. I'm an honest and deeply caring person of integrity and compassion. I wear my heart on my sleeve and hate any sort of confrontation/conflict.

I'm a classic intellectual introvert: I love reading, writing, thinking, learning, being creative and spending time in nature and with non-human animals. I prefer deep conversations and intimate connections with a few selected close individuals, rather than shallow/casual connections with many acquaintances. I enjoy peace, quiet and a slower pace to life.

Fun!:
My idea of a good time is a vegan dinner party with a couple of close friends for stimulating conversation, board/card games and laughs. Or an evening in with someone special or simply alone with a good book! I prefer to spend most of my time with my partner when I have one and alone when I don't, seeing friends sparingly. I need my alone time. (As you will understand from the next section, socialising takes a lot out of me and I need time to recover).

I love being in nature, particularly dog walks in the forest or by the coast.

Very much into my clean living, I don't drink alcohol, smoke or drink caffeine and I like to eat healthily. I'm a rationalist, atheist anti-theist, animal lover, who doesn't want children.

I'm here looking for a potential life partner not "just a bit of fun". :)
What I’m doing with my life
Endeavoring to cope with the illness of M.E/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which has set my life on a dramatically different course to what I had planned! You just never know when something like that will come along and strike you down.

My activity is limited, unfortunately I am not able to work right now. I try and remain positive, look on the bright side in spite of having to let go of my ambitions and accept that I am ill. I remain pro-active in managing my lifestyle in order to create the best chance of recovery, which amongst other things means putting my health needs first and being strict about looking after myself.

Yes it's a poo situation, but instead of succumbing to feeling sorry for myself, I try and make the best of it! I live day by day. I have learned to do what I can when I can do it and not beat myself up about what I can't.

Taking the glass half full approach, being ill has afforded me the opportunity of personal growth, and reassessing what truly matters in life. I've been on a voyage of self-discovery. I mature and evolve very quickly as a person. I suppose in a way, it's been like a "spiritual awakening"...without actually believing in anything spiritual (depending on your definition) lol! I think it's really important to "know thyself" before seeking a partner :).

I still have the ambition of running an animal sanctuary and education centre one day. I don't know how I will achieve that as yet...But I'm jolly well going to find a way! Animals are my reason for being.

Due to my symptoms I don't get out much, which of course limits the opportunities I have to meet new people. Hence internet dating! However I am more than my illness, I have a lot to offer a partner :).

(Btw, it's worth noting that my illness is not due to being vegan! I was ill long before I became vegan. M.E is a neurological condition of the brain, it is nothing to do with diet. Unfortunately I've had ignorant comments that have led me to point that out!...There's always one! D'oh!)
I’m really good at
Being conscientious, committed and caring in everything I do!
I'm a bit of an all-or-nothing perfectionist (but am certainly not claiming to be perfect or a purist!!!). I'm sure there are things I don't even know about that make me a complete hypocrite-(it's kind of impossible not to be in some indirect respect)-but I try my best ;), that's all anyone can do right?

Creative Endeavors:
I can make great vegan gluten-free cakes and desserts.
I have a natural skill for cake decorating (which is basically like playing with modelling clay!).
I'm becoming pretty good at cooking!
I'm not a bad writer.
I'm just getting in photography.

Strategy:
I'm quite a good strategist, which has left me the sole survivor/winner in games of paint ball and laser tag! (Which, ok, I've only done twice in my life, but I was pretty proud of myself for beating all the boys who had done it lots before haha!).
I occasionally play PC strategy games like Heroes Of Might and Magic and Age Of Empires.

I'm really NOT good at coming up with usernames (evidently haha!), keeping houseplants alive, or being concise...(who me?).
The first things people usually notice about me
People who have just met me remark that I am a lovely person (aww!). I am gentle and polite, smart, with a silly sense of humour!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Who doesn't love a good story? As a creative individual and an aspiring writer, I am fascinated by the art of story telling. I'm an avid fan of it in various formats-in my situation it is one of the things that has stopped me from going insane lol!

Shows:
Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse (Joss Whedon is my all time favourite story teller! I consider him a bit of a genuis. I will happily wear the mantel of geeky Whedonite in appreciation of his skill).
True Blood
Supernatural
The Vampire Diaries/The Originals
Castle/Bones
Nikita
Fringe/Lost
Battlestar Galactica (2004)
Game Of Thrones (though hate the gore).
Cougar Town
30 Rock
Big Bang Theory...to name a few!

Movies:
Serenity (if you couldn't have guessed!). The Matrix, Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Fifth Element, Leon, Die Hard, Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows. Lots of comedies.

Pretty much like all genres (particularly comedy) except war and horror-they deeply affect me. My mind is a very intense and vivid place to live, so when it comes to movies I generally like to keep it light with sexy glossy escapism/comic relief.

Books:
Fiction: LOVE the Anita Blake:Vampire Hunter Novels and the Merry Gentry novels by the same author.
Sherlock Holmes.

Non-fiction: To many to list!!!:
Rational Morality: A Science Of Right and Wrong (Robert Johnson)

The Highly Sensitive Person: How to Thrive When the World Overwhelms You (Elaine N. Aron).

Lots more feminist, animal rights, atheist and personal growth titles on my to-read list!

Music:
I like stuff that's very epic, dramatic and emotive. For me what hits the spot is:
Hurts
Evanescence
Muse
30 Seconds to Mars
I also like Pink, Metric and Lana Del Rey.

I occasionally enjoy listening to podcasts. My favourites are
Animal Rights: The Abolitionist Approach Commentary (Gary L. Francione).
NZVegan (Elizabeth Collins)
VeganFreak Radio (Bob and Jenna Torres).
Feminism For The Rest Of Us.
The six things I could never do without
Animals, the internet, books, my favourite tv shows, vanilla rooibos tea, sunglasses.

Doesn't it really bug you when people fill this section with things like "air, water, food, shelter" etc? DUH, that goes without saying! The answer to this question is supposed to tell the reader a bit more about you as a person. It doesn't say "things I need to physically survive" we already know that silly!...People irk me lol.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I have a rich inner life that includes a lot of introspection, analysing and reflection. I'm pretty much always deep in thought...and a bit of a chronic worrier!

I think about all sorts...The person I'm seeing when I'm seeing someone. The workings of the human mind; social conditioning and sociology; the causes of emotional suffering and conflict; morality; speciesism, sexism and body image (and other forms of discrimination); how to save the world from humans; how to help humans; how to save non-human animals; evolution; life, death and the universe, what causes CFS, how to achieve relaxation (perhaps by not thinking about all of the above...), my furry family members, chocolate...Just HOW am I going to start my animal sanctuary when I have no money, property or land?!...to name but a few things haha!

I expend a lot of energy thinking, my mind often feels like it's racing with 100 things at once!...Zoom, zoom, zoom!
On a typical Friday night I am
Cuddling up in my pjs under a duvet in front of a favourite tv show or a good book or baking something yummy. I'm a happy homebody (not that I have much choice about that lol) who appreciates the creature comforts and simple pleasures in life...Much like a hobbit. Evidently I'm not the partying, thrill-seeking, adventurous type!...Of course we all know what happened to Bilbo Baggins!
I do not want to date a clubber/partier. Been there, done that, hated it.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an INFJ-the world's rarest personality type (1% of the population are this type) and an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person). 15-20% of all animal populations have this inherited trait of high sensitivity (deeper sensory processing), which is a blessing and a curse. So all in all I'm somewhat of a rarity ;). In the process of learning about and getting to know myself better, I recently started to appreciate being who I am. :)
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 30–38
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For long-term dating
You should message me if
* You have actually read my profile in full (and aren't just claiming you have...Seriously guys it's easy to tell!), thus proving that your attention span is capable of managing sentences longer than 40 characters! And that you have genuine interest in getting to know me as a person, instead of just looking at my photos and going "hmm, yeah I'd do her!"

*You are searching for a life partner and aren't just cruising for casual sex.

*You agree that causing the unnecessary suffering (particularly for the sake of pleasure, habit or convenience) of other animals is morally wrong; and that you are against slavery and murder (i.e you are vegan).
I've deliberately emphasised VEGAN VEGAN VEGAN all over my profile as it is the most important thing in my life...I'm sure you've picked up on that by now! Haha ;)

*You love animals and want as many of them in your life as possible (ideally you want to rescue them like me!).

*You do not have and never want children (I am deadly serious about that, that's an absolute deal breaker. I will not get involved with someone who wants children so please take that seriously and be honest. I want a child-free life and I refuse to set myself up for heartbreak with someone who's going to leave me when I don't "change my mind").

*You are a like-minded introvert , seeking a peaceful life in the countryside, not an extrovert who needs to be constantly out partying and socialsing in the heart of the city. I've done the whole "opposites attract thing", it doesn't work. I need and want someone similar to me now. :)

Please note I am not desperate, vulnerable or needy. I'm pretty content on my own. So I'm not looking to be with someone just for the sake of it. I'm happy to hold out for Mr. Right :).

Don't like my profile? That's cool, then don't message me! lol.

Axe murderers need not apply.

Peace, love and all that Jazz! X
