I'm a Michigan transplant by way of Oakland, having technically lived in Southern California for nearly a year at the time of this update.
I do tech support in a largely male-dominated field. I travel more often than I want to, but am hoping that changes. When not working or otherwise obligated to be somewhere, I prefer to find myself with a heart raised in downward dog, hands wrapped around a bell, bar, or barbell, cold feet warmed by slapping pavement, core challenged to keep hips in close on walls peppered with plastic. I'm on a self-imposed mission to find the best cigar (LFD Camaroon Cabinet is currently in the lead), the most decadent chocolate (TCHO milk), the most voluptuous glass of red wine (the jury is still out), and the best Mexican joint within stumbling distance (Which apparently, according to my palate, is in Michigan. Don't judge me.). All this to say that I am, a busy kid. Out of necessity and choice, I go full force pretty much until I collapse.
My iPod is a never ending work in progress. I love to write, but tend to do more thinking about writing than actual writing. I climb rocks and swing dance for fun. I also make magnets and knit and/or crochet. I'm currently good at making straight lines, with little to no intricate patterns; I'm a forever beginner.
I contradict myself quite often. I love thrift store shopping, and thoroughly enjoy a good purge. I'm lightly pierced and somewhat tattooed and enjoy other...alternative activities. But nothing illegal.
I'm not here to find my future husband. I'm not here to find the person I'll spend the rest of my life with. I'm here to, at best, make some friends. If more develops, awesome. If not, that's fine too because I'll perv on your profile either way.
I'm attracted to older men (>35 ish, <50 ish), and although I'm not opposed to getting to know someone my age (30-35), I'm not likely to go into it looking for more than friendship.
I currently consider myself non-monogamous, but with a renewed curiosity for monogamy. I don't quite know what my flavor of poly is, but I'm definitely not looking for a "family," I do currently have no qualms with dating and forming meaningful relationships with more than one person at a time, but - again - I am open to a monogamous relationship with the right person. Heads up, this will involve much discussion.
I know how to work on cars but very very rarely do so. I love to cook and bake. I also appreciate good grammar. While I realize that no one is perfect and typos do happen and whatnot, if you don't know the difference between two too and to, or between their there and they're, I might have a hard time making it through your email. I'm also not too keen on 'lol-speak.' At least I think that's what it's called. If you drop all vowels and are always rotflyao, or lol at everything, I'm definitely going to have a hard time getting to the end of your message. Sorry, but 'tis true.
