Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I travel for work and my location updates based on where I am
staying. I'm looking for both friends and maybe a lover. I live in
Southern Oregon where i grew up - returning after 20 years of
living in Portland and the East coast. I miss having strong queer
culture and would welcome more queer identified progressive friends
of all ages and interests. I travel to Portland every 5-6 weeks and
Roseburg monthly for work. I travel to Phoenix, AZ several times a
year and Denver usually at least annually for training.
I'm a femme, PhD educated, employed, and physically and mentally
healthy. I am fit. For a lover, I do require someone with similar
offerings in the financial, physical and mental health stability
areas. I also can't be partnered with a smoker as I respond
negatively to cigarette smoke (migraine trigger). If you want to
hang out, I can hang as a friend only if you aren't a heavy smoker
and can refrain from smoking during social settings for several
hours at a time. I'd never consider a romantic relationship with a
I do like and enjoy the company of men as friends and I am not into
hanging out with women who are either man haters or are "bi for a
guy" types or curious women (non-virgins only, please)....
I am liberal, conservation/environmental leaning, non-smoking
(again), local food supporting, dark chocolate, coffee drinking,
non-addictive type but drink occasionally, omnivore, enjoy a good
belly laugh, etc.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I recently decided to abondon my doctoral disseration after
attaining ABD status and completing all the research - foolish but
I lost interest. I've been riding motorcycle (long rides of several
hundred to a thousand miles over a long weekend or week) and
creating other mayhem. I'm working for my mortgage and paying off
my student loans but I do enjoy my job fortunately - yet still I
work to live and have good work - life balance. I am trying to keep
up with the yard - but I don't really enjoy the grass part (one day
I will covert it to all edible to the dismay of my neighbors). I
have a classic car under restoration that is fun to cruise in
shows. I enjoy all the seasons and company of friends pool or
fireside! I also don't mind time by myself. I'm also training a
young dog (or she is training me).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Procrastination - particularly completing one big dissertation
which I finally decided not to finish! Getting ready in a hurry and
still looking fabulous! I'm faster than most butches (love women of
all types though). I"m femme on the outside, tomboy on the inside -
grew up on a farm and know how to use power tools (besides the
Hitachi). I eat meat and yes, I know where it comes from! I've
raised it myself! I am at a loss for being verbose at this moment
although everytime I come to the site it encourages me to add words
- I'm not sure to what end!
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My shoes - lots of Fluevog wingtips (because I line retro style but
can't wear heels) and novelty socks! If they see them below my
large chest! I'm trying to score a 500 (now 1000) word profile so I
can feel more "complete"! How does being boring and wordy make one
more "complete" anyway!?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I own several televisions but I do not subscribe to cable or
satellite television services. From My Facebook Profile: TV Shows:
Fringe, The Wire, Law & Order, Torchwood Music: Lilith Fair,
reggae, bluegrass, classic rock, 80s, Candye Kane. Books include
mostly non-fiction right now due to the school gig (update - now I
can catch up on my fiction). I do enjoy some hot vampire erotica,
crime suspense/thriller type books, some horror (thriller style). I
read more than watch tv. I love good food (support your local CSA).
I an a member of a few local wineries, but I'm not a wine snob - I
just know what I like - mostly reds and sweet whites. I also think
beer should be opaque but will sometimes drink something light but
not often! I eat meat and yes, I know where it comes from, I grew
up on a farm and buy local meat only. I loathe Monsanto and factory
farms. When the temperature reaches 100+, I like to take the day
off and float the river. I don't work most of December and as I
don't observe religious holidays, I often find myself traveling.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Water for hydration, the Hitachi majic wand (power tool reliant),
water based Lube, Moisturizer with sunscreen, dental floss, and my
papillon & Rhodesian ridgeback dogs (that makes it six, huh?)!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
my naval and figuring out how many words does it take to be
complete?! How many licks does it take? Why do results vary and
what happens if I try it at home?! I think about eating sushi at
least 5 times a week and often eat it at least twice a week. I
would eat it every night if I could. But, I do know that most sushi
is not sustainable and it guilts me - not enough to stop eating it
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Looking for something to do but rarely finding it - ending up
surfing the web or walking the dog.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Shhhh it's not private if I tell - okay, I have piercing, tattoos,
and other body modifications (now don't you want to ask).

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You've been naughty! Or if you're nice! You generally have good
grammar (lack of spell check is okay), don't use made up words
(except in texting), and know the difference between your and
you're or there, their, and they're! No, I'm not the grammar police
- it's just a pet peeve!
