Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm a romantic person, for sure. I really like getting to know
someone intimately, their ins and outs. I'm very one on one that
way. I like long conversations, and long silences, and just being
where you are with that person.
I've been single for a while now, almost a year and a half. I've
been very focused on finishing grad school and thinking about the
future and being very focused. I've dated here and there, but
really haven't met someone where we really sparked.
My last relationship was short, just a few weeks, with someone I
met here. She was wonderful, a writer, a very intelligent and
pretty person with a huge heart. We got along very well, but we
just had some very serious personality differences that didn't let
us progress to that next level.
Before that, I had been seeing a woman who'd moved here from Italy.
She was very quirky and funny and cute and fun and had come here to
work in the fashion industry. I really really liked her but she
kept moving to different cities. We had met through mutual friends,
and were very affectionate, but in the end couldn't get into the
same city together.
My next couple relationships before that are very much the same
story -- we really really like each other but we are in this stage
of our lives where we're moving around trying to get our lives
situated for the long run. I had longer term relationships before
all that, but all that seems like a lifetime ago.
So that's a little about me and my romantic history. I'm definitely
ready to get on the horse again and go for it. I really like the
romantic experience and sharing time with someone special. I'm
hoping that now i've got grad school almost in my rear view i can
focus more on love life and on paying attention to a partner and
enjoying that side of life again in all its depths.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Currently I'm a cook at a farm-to-table restaurant in Old North
Columbus. I'm finishing my graduate degree. I'll have a masters in
fine arts here in another month.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at drawing comics, and at cooking healthy meals,
and at adventuring and being creative.

Not sure. You'll have to tell me!

Right now I'm about 2/3rds the way through Murakami's 1Q84. It's
starting to drag out a little, and feel kind of repetitive, to be
honest. Just watched Mad Max Fury Road and that was a blast and a
visual treat. I think however that Sigourney Weaver was more of a
badass in alien.
I've been listening a lot of animal collective lately. tried out
the panda bear but it was just too much the same so i went back to
the animal collective.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
a pen and notebook
a good meal
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I've been thinking a lot about feminism lately. A lot of my art
centers around relationships between men and women and i'm always
concerned whether my portrayals are feminist or whether they are
sexist. it's definitely a journey i'm on.
i also think about ways to be healthier. i eat well, and walk
everywhere, but maybe i should start working out? and oh god, the
smoking. that needs to stop.
i think a lot about getting over to the culture centers more to
bolster up my cultural understanding. like more trips to Los
Angeles and New York City.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
honestly, lately, i'm usually working on a comics page, or out at
the coffee shop. or out on a walk when the weather isn't too humid.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I don't want kids. I tell myself that, but I also tell myself that
I got into a long term committed relationship and the two of us
wanted to have kids then that would be a situation where i would
want to re-evaluate the no kids thing.
also, i've done a few kinky things. not more than most, i'm sure,
by my age. i'm usually vanilla. but i've had a three way before.
and i've dated someone who was in an open relationship with her
husband. and when a lady has asked me to tie her up during sex i've
obliged. i'm pretty open minded to various things as long as at the
core there is a relationship of respect and mutual
AND i've got to say something about single moms here, because 80
percent of you over 30 have kids so says the census so that's
definitely a thing. Kids are not a deal breaker for me. Having my
own kid is different than you coming into the situation with your
own. In that case, it's definitely something i'd have to take into
account (duh), whether or not i'd be a good match for you and for
your kid(s). It's something I'd be open minded about. I kinda have
to be :)

honestly, i'm looking for more of the same. i've had some great
experiences and some great relationships. especially with working
artists and people who work as activists to make the world a better
place. i'm not going to say no absolutement pas! if you happen to
be a soccer mom or a financial analyst or whatnot, but that's not
really what has happened in the past. as i said, i'm always open to
new things as long as it involves kindness, respect and mutual
oh, one thing. if you're super dark or mean spirited or really
enjoy negativity, that's a huge turn off for me. i've worked hard
to achieve balance in my life, so in turn i'm looking for someone
who has done the same.
also, if you are into guns or violence or republicans or right wing
religion, those are deal breakers. i'm intolerably liberal-minded
when it comes to political stuff.
