Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm mostly sweet though sometimes feisty,
tons of love to give (a tantric approach to life: not jaded, not
still very much a kid at heart,
Definitely long winded (just look at the length of this profile!)
And to quote Sir Mix A lot: an LA face with an Oakland booty.
Curvy, and thick 42 inch hips.. but sleek. Hourglass figure.
Im here for creative, inspiring connections. Silliness and laughs.
I love geeks and creative types, people who, like me, love life.
Warm, enthusiastic personalities. people who like to make stuff and
want to make stuff together. I'm a studio artist and graphic
My disclaimer: I want to hear from people who want real connection.
Is that too much to ask? I hope not ;) This site is full of people
who want to "keep it light" and I like it deep.
I'm hard to define. Sometimes shy and sometimes brazen. Equally
comfortable at a black tie affair as I am playing Playstation or
crafting. (I love video games for their artistic merits, honestly)
I'm well rounded and can wax poetic about topic ranging from
Bitcoin to Buddhism. Ayahuasca is an amazing teacher. Definitely
not afraid to get dirty, take that how you will. I am a bit
dominant in personality (though not in the bedroom) and men who are
nurturing and sweet suit me best. I've never really clicked with
seriously alpha males. I live a pretty kinky lifestyle. More on
that when we meet, perhaps
I live on the edge of Emeryville/Oakland....and am San Francisco
all the time and don't mind the thought of dating someone outside
the Bay, especially if it means spending more time on a farm.
I meditate, love philosophy, appreciate Buddhism and Taoism for
it's wisdom-isms. I'm pretty witchy. That said, I'm also down to
earth and can hang with just about anyone, logical, business-types
and atheists included.
In an ideal world I'd find someone who has both the time and means
to travel. I'd love to find someone who lights me up. A best friend
who I can't keep my hands off ;)
That said, I do take things slow, believe in being friends before
anything else. Ultimately, someday, I'd love a partner to go deep
with. You know, co-habitation: The final frontier. Someone to share
a home with, a space for creating and a big round table to gather
friends around. I want a creative life full of projects and travel
with my partner. I'm not so interested in raising a family.
This last paragraph is meant to scare you off. If it hasn't,
awesome :) xo
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Self employment has always been key for me
I run a few businesses and enjoy a lot of freedom.
I assist at a gallery here in Oakland.
I paint, and sculpt, and adore installation and video. I've studied
at several fancy art schools, exhibited in galleries, and have been
lucky enough to actually sell most of my artwork. Fun, right? I
balance all my artsy-stuff with good, entrepreneurial business
sense. no starving here.
And in true Renaissance style: I've been studying Chinese Medicine
for 3 years, part time.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
being nurturing. Being straight up. cuddling. sticking with things,
reading people. rapping (poorly). making stuff. bringing something
interesting to the table. planning adventures. making things grow.
taming wild things. Being brave. smiling...
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I am not a 9-5'er so fridays do not stand out for me. I'm just as
likely to stay up late on a wednesday night. Sometimes I'm out
dancing, or maybe at home with a friend and a film. (pretty sweet
set up: projected movies in bed!) if I'm lucky I'm at a hot spring
getting witchy. Or I'm working in art. I'm mellowing out these
days, and finding more pleasure in simple things...but I still love
to dance, check out bands, attend art openings and what not.
Typical retired hipster stuff.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
like me, you are happy to not procreate. I do not want kids. Its a
deal breaker for most.
The rest of this stuff is gravy:
~you're silly, you're able to get ridiculous
~you dream of an urban homestead: chickens, bees, gardens
~you're great at sexy stuff ;)
~you're extroverted / have a big personality
~you have done some work on yourself, you are emotionally
~you value stability. this includes financial stability
~you love love
~you love nature: hiking, diving, snorkeling, camping, hot
~you like to make stuff
~you wanna go out dancing
~you have a stellar music or film collection you want to introduce
p.s Fellas: online dating is completely fraught with weirdo's and
scammers, men who don't read profiles, and other bad news bears. If
she seems a little uptight, perhaps that is why. You men seriously
have no idea. This place is full of landmines, be kind! Xo
