Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am in a loving relationship with a wonderful man. We have an open
relationship which works really well for both of us but he is my
priority at the end of the day. That being said, I would love to
meet a smart independent woman who would like to explore a
relationship with me.
I work with children with autism and I love my job. I am currently
working towards my Masters in Education at OISE part-time which
takes up quite a bit of my time. I am enjoying the learning
although I am also looking forward to being finished next June so
that I have more free time to pursue classes which involve more
personal growth than career growth.
I am interested in circus arts of all kinds but my passion is the
hula hoop. I have recently discovered "ecstatic dance" and am
really enjoying exploring free style movement. I have started
exploring contact improvisation over the past 6 months and it has
been a powerful force in my life. I consider ecstatic dance, as
well as hula hooping to be forms of moving meditation however I
definitely am interested in exploring other forms of meditation as
well. Moving meditation has always worked well for me as someone
who has a hard time 'quieting' my mind. As I continue to learn to
have better control over my consciousness I am finding myself more
interested in more still forms of meditation. It's another thing on
the list of things to explore more seriously when I am done school
although I am trying to make space for it even now.
If I were to describe myself I would say I'm a little bit awkward
sometimes, but generally really friendly. I'm shy and can seem more
so particularly if I like someone or think they're really awesome.
Generally I find it easier with people who are really extroverted
as they pull me out of my shell a bit and force me to step out of
my comfort zone. The unknown can be daunting....and generally a lot
of fun once you get over the nerves.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work with children with autism as an ABA instructor therapist. I
am starting my course work towards getting my behaviour analyst
board certification (BCBA) as well as working towards my Masters in
Education. That's my plan for the next few years and then I may
just run away and live on a beach for a while.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Hula hooping. I promise it's cooler than what you did in gym class!
It's like a cross between circus arts, rhythmic gymnastics and
dance. I've been doing it for going on three years now, and I'm
pretty passionate about it. it has given me so much from fitness,
to meditation, to an ice breaker with new people. It's one of the
few things that I will easily admit that I am damn good at.

Movies and TV are awesome for those nights when you need to turn
your brain off and just veg out for a while, but I find I feel much
more rejuvenated by engaging in less passive activities for the
most part. That being said, I watch my fair share of TV and movies,
I just try to make sure it's only in small doses.
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
Once Upon a Time
Really liking mumford and sons and the lumineers and music in that
genre lately. Laura Marling, Florence and the Machine
Shad, Basement Jaxx, Hilltop Hoods, Haitus, anything with bass and
a good beat.
I have an eclectic taste in music.
Food..I like everything! But my favourite is probably Indian. i
also like sushi, dimsum, pho, ethiopian. I have been trying to eat
healthier lately and find that I really enjoy spending the time to
make a good fresh meal. I try to avoid pre-packaged food and make
most things from scratch (that's not to say I always succeed in
this endeavor). Some of my favourite meals lately have been grass
fed organic steak with home made curried french fries and steamed
broccoli, pulled chicken tacos with guacamole, stir fried rice with
baked sweet potato cubes, ground chicken and kale. I've been really
digging collard greens lately too.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately, I've spent a lot of time thinking about the ways we
negotiate consent, how it's affected by traditional gender roles,
and how we should teach about consent in sexual education.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The last month, a typical Friday night has seen me dancing like no
one is watching at "The Move". Typical Saturday night will involve
either me sitting at home doing homework, dancing at a party or
sharing a glass of wine with friends.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you respect that I have a primary partner but still would like
to spend time with me, you're interested in having conversations
that go beyond what you watched on TV most recently, you understand
that feminism doesn't mean hating men, you are interested in
meditation or movement therapy, you are actively trying to become a
better person than the day before, you believe you are a better
person today than you were yesterday, you are comfortable
discussing your opinions even if someone disagrees....
