Note: I'm in Philadelphia until mid January or February then back to Portland. I'm not looking to date due to health issues, but I enjoy meeting people so if it sounds like we might get along and you want to hang out while I'm here, let me know.
Genderqueer, poly, feminist, vegan, anarchist, atheist, curious about the world hippie seeks older similarly identified with no pets for primary partnership or other compatible folks for other types of relationships (including friends, which is mostly what I am looking for right now).
My health has been worse than usual lately (sleep issues, digestive issues, allergies), so I'm looking for lower energy hanging out. I am usually up for talking and walks.
I enjoy dancing (contact improv), song circles, running, cooking, hugs, cuddling, writing, drawing, and computer programming. I have a particular style that involves simplifying complex things as much as possible while retaining their essence, playing with ideas and objects, and looking behind the scenes and at how stuff works.
I'm not into harsh or sarcastic communication, fat phobia, patterns of behavior that reinforce male dominance, violence, intoxication and drugs, references to deities, horror movies, or pets.
I came up with a brief test of basic human decency that is compatible with a wide range of ideology; to pass, you should unconditionally support (as a minimum) the following three policies: 1) Close (anything resembling) the School of the Americas 2) Release 50% of the US prison population today 3) Provide at least basic housing, food, clothing, and medical care for all people. Also you should be able to quickly name at least one other major human rights issue in the US today.
I've lived in intentional communities before and would like to somehow end up in a vegan intentional community with both urban and rural parts. Beyond the particular community I live in I would love to be surrounded by other folks who have a similar style of interacting with the world (hard to explain and I am still learning how to even think about such things; it is connected a little but not that much to "ideological" perspectives). Personal relationships could potentially take the place somewhat of intentional community connections and intentional community connections could potentially somewhat take the place of broader connections, but personal connections can in no way take the place of broader connections and I am really looking for all three to be significant parts of my life.
I like meeting most people (even if just once) but am not good at writing people online (I will try if you don't live near me and don't mind irregular timing). So if you are interested in meeting up somewhere ☕ then let me know when and where would work for you.
If I star you profile I have read it (at least the part of it that shows up under quickmatch) and think we would get along somehow (not necessarily dating). I am hoping that you will read the above and, if you are interested, just suggest that we meet somewhere.
