Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm an outgoing, creative person with a love for learning new
things. I love animals--I'm paring down at the moment but last
month I had a dog, a cat, five angora rabbits, five chickens, a
ferret, and a duck; I enjoy cooking, playing video games, and being
outside. It's been awhile since I've been horseback riding but I
love to do both that and camping, and I hope to find someone who
can respect and appreciate the person I am. I have two kids. I've
never minded getting dirty, I'm merely an okay swimmer, and I'm
currently going through a divorce, as well. I'm equally at home at
a black tie event, out on the farm, or curled up on the couch in my
pajamas. I really like who I am. I'm confident in myself, I know
what I want. I know what I don't want.
I'm a nurturer, an extrovert, and an organizer.
I'm a bit of a hippie.
I’m looking for the same things I offer: respect, loyalty,
generosity, honesty, love, romance, and true partnership; for
someone who knows that I'm a mom first and knows how to communicate
I am not a novelty. This is who I am and this isn't changing.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now I'm having tons of fun with my kids and critters every
day, and am part of a new podcast starting up called Geeks Gone
Mom. I'm also learning how to play the ukulele and am super active
with Cream City Hens, a community movement that recently legalized
backyard henkeeping in Milwaukee. I'm still a Girl Scout, read a
lot, knit, sew, and bake. I make killer homemade bread, yogurt, pad
thai and butter. When I've got the time and extra funds I show my
Cardigan in conformation. I'm working on my plan for homesteading
in my yard next year, and want to include dye plants and medicinal
I've also got a photo series on Tumblr called #simplejoy.
I go to work. I go to school.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I consider myself to be a creative person, and there are a lot of
things that pique my curiosity, resulting in constant learning.
Every day I look at something new, learn something new, and grow
into a new person.

"Wow, your hair is really long!"
"Holy cow, those are weird shoes!" (If my hair is up in a hat)

poke my toes.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Oh man. Okay, I love Harry Potter (though I actually refused to
read it at first because of all of the hype), the Song of Ice and
Fire series by George R R Martin, the Outlander series, Jane Austen
novels, the Kate Daniels series, Hitchhiker's Guide, Neil Gaiman,
Terry Pratchett, Doctor Who, Firefly, Sharpe's Rifles, Star Wars,
Queen, Amanda Palmer, The Beatles, Nickel Creek, JT Spangler,
Supertramp, and barbeque sauce (give me chicken wings and a beer

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
- A book
- Vibram Five Fingers with skirts
- A dog
- The wind
- Sweet things (possibly sweet nothings, as well)
- Daffodils and peonies
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Possibilities. I am such a dreamer. I'm an eternal optimist. I am
filled with hope almost constantly.
This can get me into trouble--I can easily make grand plans I then
commit to and then something crazy will happen like a kid gets sick
and I'm stuck. Or run out of gas.
I also think about my desire for a larger family but complete
unwillingness to ever bring more biological children into the

I have a geographic tongue.
(In looking this up, I've found that this definition appears to be
some sort of disorder or something. It's not. My tongue just
doesn't look uniform. This goofy and unique appearance does not
affect kissing skills. I really do love to kiss.)
The two bottom personality traits, and the four top ones in my OKC
profile are the only ones that are remotely correct.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You may want kids (I have a ten year old and a seven year old),
love critters, don't mind cooking half of the time, have something
to talk about, can deal with goofy shoes, have an interest in
sustainability, and know how to sing. (...okay, so that last one
isn't a requirement...) Extra points if you're a Whovian, know how
to dremel a dog's nails, like to mop floors, or can't decide if
you'd rather be a Jedi or a wizard.
Message me if you're a feminist, aren't condescending or
patronizing, if you've got a good vocabulary.
Message me if you love in deep pigmented saturated tones of
emotion. If emotion isn't a dirty word.
Message me if you're too much, or if you're not enough.
Message me if your message will give me something to work with. If

I do have a non-traditional view on relationships. I'm polyamorous.
The only thing OKC will accept is that I'm in an 'open
relationship' which seems to be the closest to where I'm at. I do
have a primary partner that I'm very much in love with. I'm an
While falling so deeply in love that I can't tell where I end and
the other person begins will happen to me someday, I don't know if
I'm ready for that yet.
