Brief summary: I'm looking for new friends who are physically active and at least somewhat like-minded with regard to ethics and lifestyle. I'd especially like to connect with other runners. Not looking for sex partners or a primary relationship.
I'm a bit of a queer package (pun intended). I'm bisexual, polyamorous, vegan (other than honey), pacifist, car-free, and a Green party member. But I'm also very punctual and financially responsible.
I enjoy singing (rock, jazz, Broadway, occasionally karaoke) and playing piano (including classical pieces) and electric bass. I love making music with friends, and hope to do much more of this activity.
A couple things to highlight before going any further: I am a happily married woman and not looking to cheat or have a secret affair; my husband is fully supportive of our open relationship and even has a profile on OKCupid himself (boyziggy). Also, I am very unlikely to get into a serious relationship with someone who has children living at home.
Values are important to me in a long-term relationship. I have been vegetarian for over 20 years. I have never owned a car. I do not invest in the stock market. I am very left-leaning politically, close to socialist.
I dislike stereotypical female grooming rituals like clothes shopping and putting on makeup and jewelry. I have no tattoos or piercings (not even my ears) and have stopped dyeing my naturally curly salt-and-pepper hair. I do however like curvy bodies and long hair (the latter on both men and women).
Please note: my OKCupid test "profile" has swung from "Battle Axe" to "Maid of Honor" depending on my mood when I take the test. I'm just not good at answering these kinds of either-or questions. Neither characterization accurately reflects my personality anyway; you'll just have to contact me to find out what I'm really like.
Also, "atheism" doesn't fully explain my religious views, which include a large helping of Buddhism with a dash of neo-paganism. I would not describe myself as agnostic or "spiritual", however; I've been an atheist for over 25 years and that stance is very unlikely to change.
