So I try not to take anything too seriously, though I sometimes fail at that. I try to learn about as many things as my brain will allow. I'm a consummate geek. There are very few topics that I won't find interesting. Except, perhaps, how big your bank account is, or how much you car costs, or how fast it goes.
Most would label me a hippie; with all the free-thinking, love everyone, peacenik, mind expanding ideas that go along with it, but don't worry I do bathe regularly enough. I try to live a life of moderation and I'd probably do well living as a Buddhist monk, but my attachment to society and all it's variety prevents me from living a life as an ascetic. I find human interaction, relationships and sex absolutely fascinating; in intellectual, physiological, and sociological ways, as well as for the obvious reasons, and consider myself to be very sex-positive, and a feminist. Also, to complete the decathlon of hippie stereotypes, I'm a vegetarian, an absolute pacifist, I do yoga, I volunteer and plant trees.
I think humans have a biological imperative to learn and discover.
We are all on this one little tiny rock floating through space, and we should probably start acting like we are all in this together if we don't want to wind up as a tiny footnote in the history of the world as the destroyer of many millions of years of evolutionary development and life. Therefore I don't take too kindly to people whose only concerns are the accumulation of wealth, as it is counterproductive to the aforementioned survival of our, along with many other, species. And I'm no saint, but somehow or another, lately it seems like helping out your fellow man and not being a selfish asshole is somehow the deviation from the norm? Do people really have to try that hard not to be a complete bastard to everyone around them? Really?? This is honestly pretty troubling to me...
Speaking of hippie tendencies, I have little use for of the way in which society has labeled and partitioned what interpersonal relationships can be. You have a "relationship" in one form or another with everyone you know, some deeper than others, but to draw specific lines seems arbitrary and silly. Obviously, human connection is the most important thing in our lives, so I'm certainly not discounting it in any way and very much encourage and seek such connections with others. I'm just not selfish enough to want to keep someone's love just for my own; I wouldn't want to stop someone from exploring themselves in any way. Our own personas are constantly changing and evolving, so I think putting some sort of set of restrictions on that evolution is detrimental to our own growth. Seeking one particular type of relationship sets one up for disappointment, in my opinion. It's happened to me many a time: looking for what I think I want, only to be disappointed, and becoming unhappy because what I have doesn't match what I want. I'd like to think I have a more Taoist approach to relationships: go with the flow, let things evolve on their own. I am trying harder to take pleasure in the current moment, as I, like many others, have the tendency to over think things and not notice what's in front of my face. I am a supporter of polyamory and am more than willing to meet new folks and see what connections can be made.
I listed myself as bisexual for a while here, but I felt weird since it was more theoretical than anything else. I am open to connections with anyone, regardless of sex or gender presentation, and are probably closer to being pansexual, but I guess I'm just kinda picky on a person-to-person basis?
So, all that said, I'm just looking for new and interesting people with whom to share observations about this ludicrous world. What becomes of the relationship, I shall leave up to the chaos that is life.
Ok, I lied. There isn't any cake. I'm sorry.
