My self-summary
I love cats, critters of all sorts, nature, science, music, art, gardening, dancing, singing, the outdoors, thrift stores, and BDSM. I'm open, adventurous, and playful. I love exploring and learning new things. I love road trips, camping, and hiking. I also like to spend time alone reading, and crafting. Sometimes I am lazy and I do nothing and that's good too. I love wind, storms, the moon, crystals, candles, flowers, and rainbow colors. I've gotten into exploring my spirituality in the past couple years and I'm pretty involved in the pagan community these days. I'd prefer to date someone who practices some sort of magickal path.
What I’m doing with my life
At one point I was in a Ph. D. program, on the track to becoming a serious research scientist. I dropped out. It wasn't for me.

I'm totally better at sales. Been doing various sales jobs for a few years and I like it. Actually just started a new job in digital marketing which I'm pretty excited about.

Outside of work, I snuggle with my cats, grow plants, dance around, and do some priestessing.
I’m really good at
I'm friendly, flirty, and outgoing. I talk to people wherever I go. I am very approachable, and random strangers tell me all kinds of personal stuff. In sales, my big strength is establishing rapport.

I know a lot about biology, science, genetics, evolution, entomology, etc. If you find some creepy thing with lots of legs, I can probably tell you what it is and all about its lifestyle. I'm kind of a critter expert.

What I'm bad at is keeping my mouth shut for 5 seconds. Filtering things out is a struggle for me. I tend to say what pops into my head. I am honest, open, and straightforward. I suck at hiding things, lying, and keeping secrets.
The first things people usually notice about me
Well I'm fat! I have been fat in varying degrees all my life (oh, it fluctuates... I've ranged from size 12-28 through the years), but I will always be a fat chick. If you can't accept that, I don't want to meet you. I might gain weight and lose weight now and then... but I'm certainly never going to be a size 4.

People also notice that I am perky, hyper, and high-energy. People tell me that they love my laugh. And people tell me to pipe down, I am too loud and I talk too much. And I tend to be quite raunchy and perverted. I'm a big freak. People usually say I'm giving them TMI.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some authors I like: Barbara Kingsolver, Daniel Pinkwater, Christopher Moore, Roald Dahl, Francesca Lia Block, Jasper Fforde.

I read trashy light novels, silly and weird books. Magical, fantasy, scary, or spooky supernatural books too. Lately I'm reading a lot about different spiritual practices. And I have tons of gardening books, and books on sexuality, relationships, gender, feminism, body positivity, etc.

Movies: Mostly quirky, offbeat, artsy, indie stuff, and I love musicals. Also visually interesting stuff. (I'm a sucker for movies that are all trippy and surreal looking.) Some movies I like: Across the Universe, Amelie, American Beauty, Edward Scissorhands, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Garden State, Ghost World, Idiocracy, Into the Wild, John Dies at the End, Little Miss Sunshine, Little Shop of Horrors, Moulin Rouge, Rent, Requiem for a Dream, Shortbus, Thumbsucker, What Dreams May Come.

I have a broad interest in music. I love finding new bands and new kinds of music to listen to. One of my favorite things to do is going out to see pretty much any kind of live music. I have some musical background in playing trombone, a little piano, and singing. Recently I started taking drumming classes.

Some faves: they might be giants, ben folds, cake, daft punk, belle and sebastian, beatles, squirrel nut zippers, bjork, bowie, planet smashers, rasputina, indie, broadway, jazz, ska, reggae, jambands, electronic, pink floyd, stereolab, dresden dolls, of montreal, new pornographers, widespread panic, grateful dead, new monsoon, tori amos, aquabats, sublime, sufjan stevens, aphex twin, animal collective, the shins, no doubt, robert earl keen, dixie chicks, lucinda williams, bluegrass, folk... and much more!

I love food. I love fresh garden veggies. I'm pretty obsessed with tomatoes, peppers, avocados, mushrooms, spinach, onions, potatoes, cheese, garlic, sour cream, olive oil, fresh basil. I like spicy food, indian, thai, sushi, mexican, pizza. Sometimes I get really into "clean" eating, but sometimes I eat tons of junk food. I don't like to be rigid or restrictive about what I eat. Ideally, I eat whatever makes me actually feel good. I'd love to hook up with some wild vegetarian organic chef person who would cook me delicious gourmet meals all the time.
The six things I could never do without
BDSM, cats, plants, the universe, acceptance, love
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Improving my conscious contact with my higher power.

And I think about buying a few acres of land a little bit out in the country... where I could have a magical cozy cottage, gardens, fruit trees, and eventually get a few chickens and a few goats. It won't be this year, but maybe in a year or two... maybe. I'm country at heart.

Also finance stuff, numbers, business plans. How to monetize my friends' creative ideas.
On a typical Friday night I am
Frolicking in a field of moonlight and sparkles, or dancing around a flame with a gathering of woodland creatures.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a thing for managers. I love commanding authority figures. When I have a boss who likes to push me hard and put a lot of pressure on me, I feel all warm and fuzzy. Someone being in charge of me and telling me what to do all day drives me wild! Soo... if you have any management experience...

And I have a tattoo on my butt.
You should message me if
You are a fun, smart, kinky person. (I also tend to get along well with nerdy and geeky types.)

You are some sort of pagan, shaman, magickal being, healer, or spiritual seeker. I am seeking a magickal partner, or mentor who can guide me in spiritual development.

You are interested in being my slave!

You are a satyr (or horned god of some sort) seeking to seduce a wild and fierce wood nymph.

You can be mean and evil and scare the crap out of me. If you fail to pull this off... unfortunately, you may never fully excite me.

You want a subby girl to play with. (Or you want an all-powerful Goddess to worship. Hey, I switch it up...)

You're looking for romantic dating, not casual hookups. I don't knock it, I've had plenty, and I don't think it's a bad thing to do, it's just not what I'm interested in at the moment.

You get really hyper/loud/giggly sometimes. I gotta have a partner I can be extremely goofy with.

You know lots of stuff. I love being with people I constantly learn from!

You're a badass chef. It's so appealing to hang around people who cook well and feed me awesome things.

You like babies! OMG BABIES. Well not right away, but I do want one at some point, so let's be on the same page. I don't have 1 yet.

You love to be outside, want to go camping, like looking at plants and bugs, play in the mud, have a garden, or feel some kind of spiritual connection with nature.

You listen to tons of obscure bands and will expose me to new music.

You like fat girls. (Or you're attracted to women of diverse sizes/shapes. Or you think my photos are SO gorgeous, hehe. I dig it when people think I'm totally hot the way I am. I dislike people who want to date me "in spite" of my fat, because of my "inner beauty" or something. You gotta love the body I have. If you don't, move along!)

You don't drink much. I've been clean and sober for years now and I don't want to be around a lot of heavy drinking.

You have some interest in open relationships/polyamory. I prefer at least some degree of openness, but there are many degrees I can do! (HOWEVER, I'm NOT looking for married men. Please no married men or married couples! I am seeking a primary partner, and anything else has to build from that! I just don't like being everyone's secondary, I only like being secondary if I already have a primary I can focus on, otherwise I feel crazy and make drama. Right now I'm single and NOT looking to date anyone who is already committed to a primary partner.) I'm ready to be in a serious committed relationship, I'm not trying to make things casual! But I like to have some openness as a part of that commitment.

You gotta tolerate (preferably love and snuggle) cats! (I have 2 cats, and I will never not have cats! There are too many cats in the world that need a good home and lots of love... so if I can provide that, I always will. Yes, they are allowed on the bed, the kitchen counter, etc!)
