My self-summary
UPDATE 11/21/13: I have more on my plate life wise than I can handle. I'm not making use of OK Cupid or dating at this time.

I like an adventure and I like someone to share it with. Travel rates high on my list of hobbies I don't do enough of. When I travel I always manage to get hopelessly lost once and I like it that way. The best stories come from the things I never intended to find.

I'm also into being stimulated and challenged. I like intellectual conversation and would far prefer a museum to a bar. I'm really looking for someone who is into expanding other people's horizons and having their own expanded as well.

Over the years I've realized that connection has very little to do with having things in common. After setting aside a few common values, all that really seems to matter is if I stand near to that person and feel driven to move closer and vice versa.

What else? I'm trans (ftm). I was assigned female at birth, but now live as male. And I'll just slip in queer for those doing a key word search.
What I’m doing with my life
Learning, honing my craft, putting myself out there and trying something new.

I teach reading and writing to adults at CUNY and I love it. There's just something about the inattention of college students I can't get enough of. "Wait, there was a paper due today?" It never gets old. :)
I’m really good at
Computers and I click or maybe it's google and I click. I have a motto: I can do all things through Google who empowers me.

I also have the kind of patience it takes to saw through a metal lock with a butter knife. I can't claim that I always exercise it, but it is there.

When the next Andrew Lloyd Webber will come along.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't drink alcohol for the same reason some people don't drink milk. It doesn't agree with my digestive track. How's that for personal? I'm not anti drinking.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 29–37
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
If you want to talk me.

Actually, to be fair, I'm not interested in meeting anyone at this time. I'll try to respond to messages, but it will likely just be a friendly thanks for saying hello. I'm not currently seeking dates. I might be back in the future. Hard to say.
