My self-summary
I am a language geek, a Balkan folk dancer, and a mediocre but occasionally enthusiastic gardener. I am a pork-eating half-Jewish atheist, but I cultivate a healthy sense of awe for the universe. I think people are basically good. I sing in Bulgarian and Georgian, but not usually in English. I read. I cook feasts. I am a former glass-blower. I am learning how to ride a bicycle again for the first time in about twenty years, and they're right--you don't actually forget. So basically I'm sort of nerdy, intensely empathic, more than a little intellectual, and warm and silly if I trust you. If you're not that interested in "normal," cookie-cutter people, I might float your boat.

PS to Quickmatchers: my screen name is helenskye

PPS to Polyamorists: OKC seems to think I match you, but one relationship at a time is enough of a challenge for me. Some of my best friends are poly, but I'm just not that evolved. Condolences.

I am whimsical, warm, and a wannabe polyglot
I’m really good at
chocolate. massage. languages. retaining ridiculous pieces of random knowledge.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
A: The Thirteen Clocks, by James Thurber; The Just So Stories, by Rudyard Kipling; the Harry Potter series; The Writing Life, by Annie Dillard; Assembling California, by John McPhee; The Handyman (can't remember the author); anything by Joanne Harris; so many others...

B: The Piano; Pulp Fiction; Eating Raoul; Hombres Armados; The Big Lebowski; Bowling for Columbine; etc...

C: just about anything not mass-produced (although I have a soft spot for new-wave 80s stuff). But if you want specifics... think Bitov, Klapa, bluegrass, Pontic fiddle, Boris Karlov (not the actor!), Boban Markovic, John Lee Hooker, Ella & Louie, Buena Vista Social Club, Manu Chao, Huun Huur Tu... and on and on ad nauseum. I'll spare you. I like all the instruments that everyone else hates--banjos and bagpipes and accordions and such, but I am sensitive to others' preferences, and won't subject you to my music collection unless you actually appreciate it.

D: CHOCOLATE. But also Indian, Japanese, Moorish, Cambodian, Thai, Greek, and just about anything else I've tried... except for stuff like McDonalds that doesn't count as food anyway.

The six things I could never do without
pen paper scissors Friends! duh... clean underwear. and some avenue for creative expression.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
people who are important to me. evolutionary motivation for complex human behavior. brains. etymology.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
get to know me and find out!
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 26–64
  • Near me
  • Who are single
  • For new friends
You should message me if like what you see. I'll probably write back. (but no absolute guarantees)

Update: I'm not on vacation anymore. replies are now highly unlikely.
