Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I enjoy the simple things: Black coffee, great conversations, cute
animals, well-fitting dresses, and the smell of desert rain
I love to read (I spent most of my youth in the public library) and
travel (Last year, I lived on the road in a car for about two
months). Food and art keep me alive.
I am only looking for girls (or a cool couple) to have adventures
with me and my boyfriend, Quim_Font
. We're nice! I promise!
The Los Angeles area is new to me. I am a small(ish)-town girl who
can't wait to experience all that the big city has to offer. Let's
go see a show, people-watch in a dive bar, gallivant around town,
or make an elaborate meal together!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Enjoying myself. Enjoying others. Going places - doing anything
that seems fun and appealing. Having adventures. Making art.
Working at a job I actually like, for once! Eating all of the
things. Completing the weekend NY Times crosswords. Taking pictures
or collecting old cameras. Building elaborate hair sculptures.
Stumbling into awkward situations.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Baking, standardized tests, "Jeopardy!," satire, observation, arts
and crafts, hugging, listening, learning new things, Scrabble,
Being good-bad (but not evil).

Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Desires and connections. The world is bound with secret knots.

drawing, watching The X-Files, and spending the night indoors with
