i visit NYC literally every month. so if you're a new yorker and i seem nifty to you, don't despair.
i am looking for friends with whom to share long talks over coffee, creek-stomping and swimmin' hole adventures in the summer, playground jaunts with the kid (maybe you have one too?), ridiculous ideas, unpopular truths, etc.
i'm interested in making friends with anyone who's intelligent, quirky, and open-minded in ways the average person who says they're "open-minded" isn't. romantically speaking, i'm only inclined to court women right now (and no, not for threesomes or whatever, but a meaningful one-on-one courtship). i'm not too hung up on it, though, just friends is fine - but i'm open to it if it happens to happen. :-)
i'm a poor communicator (i even have trouble expressing positive emotions like "i love you"), but i've been working hard at it for the last few years and i think i'm getting better. sometimes i'm a neat freak and sometimes i'm a slob, but whichever it is at the moment, i do have some clutter. i'm a hopeless potty mouth. i'm naive and trusting in many respects but there are many things locked away in such dark places inside of me no one will ever uncover them. i've been hurt, i've lost a few of the people i loved the most, but i'm trying hard to heal.
i love to treat people in little ways and sort of constantly shower them in tiny gifts - bowling trips, concerts, movies, fabulous home-cooked meals, a bag of their favorite coffee or tube of their favorite lip gloss - but only if they appreciate me. i'm fiercely loyal and will do anything within reason to help the people i love. i'm pretty much a goofball. i pretty much can't stop myself from yelling "PUPPY" every. single. time i see a dog. i'm a good listener and random strangers often tell me their life stories with no provocation. i can get along with almost anyone (and lots of my friends despise each other as a result). also, i give a pretty killer scalp scritchin'.
i'm a grateful mother to my favorite person on the planet, as well as a frenetic snowball of a cockapoo/terrier/mutt thing and a big dopey pitbull who i find snuggled close to me every morning when i wake up. i spend a lot of time inside my own head. i love beautifully dark art, wide open spaces, bugs, books, old things, and sunny patches of grass. i'm a voluntaryist. i dig absolute individual liberty, the non-aggression principle, nonviolent communication, the powerful potential of permaculture, & the healing power of gentle touch.
so, yah. inasmuch as one can be encapsulated by a few paragraphs, that's me. hi.
