I'm a native of Cleveland, OH, and have been in the Asheville area for about a year, working on various alternative education and consulting projects. I'm a generally a head person -- science/inquiry/cognitively oriented -- and am considering going back to school for neuroscience. I've been an fMRI lab rat, warehouse supervisor, and fast-food Japanese "sample hand-out person." I've performed in Severance Hall (as part of a symphony ensemble), my Ohio pride can get kind of perverse (that may be more accurately stated as Cleveland pride), and in response to my general head orientation I try to spend a decent amount of time doing things that don't involve thinking. In a formal sense. Using words and things. Per se.
I'm interested in and familiar with various structures for living in community and am always interested to learn more! The same goes for contemplative practices.
I lived in Vienna for a few months where I studied art and architecture and spent a disproportionate amount of time staring at the statuettes in the Egyptian section at the Kunsthistorisches Museum. I also tried to hang out with monochrom but some combination of being too introverted / not wanting to speak English / being totally convinced that I wasn't cool enough prevented me. I did see a lot of operas, tho.
I'm pretty sure I sound super pretentious but I'm not super pretentious *all* the time I SWEAR.
I only accept compliments from my mom.
I like to discuss futurist and transhumanist stuff but there's a 100% change it'll be flavored with "The future is already here — it's just not very evenly distributed." (ty Willy Gibson)
all sorts of ridiculously aggressive electrohouse
classical music, for serious
The fact that water floats when it freezes.
Circumstellar habitable zones.
Regular sleep cycles.
Also food, which is technically another one of those things.
Reading a book.
Asleep before 10 PM.
Dancing aggressively to ridiculously aggressive electrohouse (even after 10 PM -- it's been known to happen).
When I say "impeccable consent practices" below, this is a part of what what I'm talking about. I'd love to receive a message from you that says "Hi! You seem really interesting. Would you like to get together and tell me more about yourself?" because I now have a clear idea of what you want -- to which I might say no. Besides, you already know way too much about me from reading this profile and are giving me funny looks in yoga class. (I see you.)
Personally, I'm on OKC because (this section did always strike me as a "What I'm looking for" section) I appreciate the mild (tho often still inaccurate) screening process that OKC offers, (situationally) enjoy meeting new and interesting people, and am eventually looking for romantic companionship. And I've made several friends this way, so. I know it works. On some level. If we meet, it's probably because I wanna watch how you think and get a sense of your politics. And now you know!
All that being said, online dating can reduce me to a miserable two-year-old of a person as well, so if your cognitive function just isn't at the moment, and you feel the need to message me exclaiming "You've got hair!" or "I like red!!" or "WOW! Things n stuff," I'm not going to stop you. I fully admit to using this strategy in regular conversation on a semi-daily basis. (Do note that "exclamations" are revealing about your thought process. :D)
I'd love to hear from you if...
You'd like to propose something engaging, whimsical, and/or hands-on to do together. Uninteresting conversation starters (and the occasional actively abrasive ones) make me sleepy and/or prone to throwing my smart device across the room (which is not good for said smart device). If you're having trouble thinking of something, might I suggest:
- Hosting a speed-folding origami competition, limited to off-square pieces of paper
- Inviting me to book club -- I shit you not. Let's read a book and discuss it. Or, given time and monetary constraints -- maybe an article or two
- Wandering around a grocery store and telling life stories based on what's elicited by the environmental cues (i.e. "This artichoke reminds me of one time at my grandma's house...")
- Communication only by drawing three-panel comics
- The "silent vipassana retreat"-style date, in which neither of us can speak, touch, make eye contact, or pay for anything
- [insert adventure of your choice here]
You're full of rad politics and enact them. (i.e. Don't call yourself a feminist and then fail to have any works created by woman artists out of the 4,765 things you list under your "favorites." You know who you are. Not that consumption habits imply politics, or that I'm perfect, just... think on this.)
You like to think deeply and patiently about things.
We already know each other. So that we can laugh about this, plz.
You want to trade fave WHY? lyrics.
You have impeccable consent practices.
You'd be fine seeing someone who doesn't tend to fully identify as female.
