My self-summary
Not everyone's cup of tea :p

Probably not in any place to be good dating material, but I can be a good for a drink and a chat if nothing else.

Itinerant teacher and literary hack. Currently in the middle of nowhere (sort of the Minneapolis region), so don't really expect anything to come of this. This profile is something of a message in a bottle. Maybe someone interesting will float along...

Colorado native. College in Seattle. Brazil for a year and a half. Nepal for 2 years. Northern CA mountains for a year. Houston for a year. NYC for almost 10 years. Woodstock for 6 months. Now the Great Lakes woods.

INFP type if that tells you anything
What I’m doing with my life
House sitting in Bisbee for the summer.

Teaching college philosophy (specialize in Asian but also do western. Also into gender studies, feminism, and lgbt issues) at a small college on the banks of Lake Superior. Not a permanent position, so the gypsy life will resume in a year or so. Who knows where... Fingers crossed for Austin, Nashville, LA, Bay, or Portland.

Other than teaching I translate French and Tibetan sometimes and work on my own scribblings.
I’m really good at
kvetching

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Building a life that works for me.
What I'm reading and writing about.
The Denver Broncos.
On a typical Friday night I am
All the days are pretty much the same right now: Work all day, take a hike, drink some wine, repeat.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I didn't hold much back in the questionnaire section. Better to be open and put deal breakers on the table.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–42
  • Located anywhere
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
You're a free-spirit

It would be cool to make a friend in Minneapolis or Madison or someplace not too far away to hang out with occasionally. Not much social life where I am. Otherwise, I'm not much use unless you have something interesting to say and feel like sending a random message just to chat.

I think the match % thing is pretty accurate, so the higher the better. In my experience, it's really a waste of time if under 85%. Maybe just for a beer and chat is fine...
