outofthis-world because that is what I am and what I seek - in a partner and a relationship. And because outofthisworld was taken. ;)
Boys: we need to see pictures. Lots of pictures. Okcupid let's you upload up to 10 at a time, use it! Also, we need to see skin. And high resolution. Otherwise we just think you're hiding something. See how many pics I have up? Should I give you the time of day if I'm at some huge disadvantage? And can you get a little more creative than the cell phone in the bathroom mirror? This is the digital age. You have GOT to have better digital photos of yourself.
Why do so many people think that "settling down" or "growing up" has to mean "becoming boring"?
I want a playmate. A partner in crime. A collaborator. A matching puzzle piece. Maybe someday we'll have little mini playmates and puzzle pieces together, maybe not. But either way, I just don't believe that being in a serious relationship, getting married, etc. has to mean we don't "go out", "be silly", "party", "have fun"!
I dance. I want to explore space. I laugh. I cry. I meditate. I play. I skate, I snowboard, I wakeboard, I dive, I go to Burning Man, i wear costumes and I do circus-type stuff. I like to make people laugh. I can be sarcastic and witty, yet also quiet and contemplative. I'm a performer (fire dancer, aerialist hooper, stiltwalker, etc) while being an engineer at NASA. I usually prefer to do the doing instead of the watching although I love concerts, Cirque du Soleil- type shows, and good action/sci-fi-fantasy movies. Love to watch them (out and cozily at home) though I'd love to be in them too lol. I am not always crazy about cooking but doing it as a team, or better yet having it done for me sounds nice. ;-) I'll gladly do the cleaning then.
Strong, yet sensitive. I can be a lot of fun and a lot of love. ;-) I have had quite the array of intense life experiences (world travel, "rock-star" moments, zero-gravity moments, death/loss), that I've been told I should write a book about. Highly technical and analytical but also very creative, expressive, compassionate, and spiritual. Born in Chicago to Ecuadorian immigrants, i was raised in Chicago and San Diego, and have lived in L.A., Seattle, Boulder CO, upstate NY, Germany, Spain, France, Japan, and Ecuador. No I am not a military brat. This was all for work, school, or wanderlust. Ok one time was for a boyfriend. But I was really young.
I moved to Houston in 2008 for my current job (NASA). I live in Montrose and commute to Clear Lake. This way i can have a real life. ;-) I have two adorable cats who are very cozy with humans but I got sick of their litter boxes so when I bought my townhouse in 2010 I put in cat doors!
Somewhere I read that the most successful marriages are between best friends who have the hots for each other, and I tend to agree. Let's see if we click!
