New Mexico was home the last three years and I loved it -- now spending the summer on the east coast, and then moving to Edinburgh to begin a PhD program. Looking to meet some like-hearted people who love life and don't take themselves too seriously.
I am a contradiction and i prefer to deal with situations as they come rather than following a rigid set of ideals. i like walking, and spending time with people who know what they want and are also open to exploration and experience as a guiding principle. i think there's a world of difference between sensuality and sexuality and appreciate both. i thrive on intellectual connection and love silence and simplicity in equal parts. i think poetry might be the highest expression of the human soul. i can't go to bed angry. i like slow mornings that revolve around espresso.
i'm on here as someone who's used to having a wide range of friends with different interests and I'm exited to meet new people and learn new things and of course new experiences.
i have a sense of humour and i'm not afraid to use it. i adore witty-vulgarity and love people who will take it to the next level, and the next after that. i find other than toronto natives, the only other people who seem to get it are people from new york. i think it has something to do with growing up in an overwhelmingly multicultural setting and learning to take nothing as sacred and making fun of everyone equally. americans think canadians are polite, but for the most part they're actually just passive aggressive and are only nice to americans because they feel culturally superior to them.
I find it remarkable how many women on here describe themselves as "easy going" and "laid back." The funny thing is, in everyday life i've *never* met anyone who is always "easy going" and "laid back." I can only assume that you're lying to yourselves, or are putting forward an incomplete representation of yourselves in the belief that a potential partner wants you to be pacified and not carry any strong convictions. This video offers a brilliant perspective on this:
