My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm passionate, free thinking and adventurous. I currently identify as bi-sexual and poly, but believe that sexuality can fluctuate over a lifetime. I love to be surrounded by inspiring, intelligent people who take an interest in the world around them.

My politics lean far to the left, and my sense of purpose comes from a desire to make the world a better place. Granted, this is a rather cliche and vague ambition, and I can hardly call myself an activist anymore. I used to be active in environmental issues in particular. But these days, rather than holding a picket sign, I am searching for a more effective means to generate change.

I'm creative and dabble in various artistic pursuits, from knitting to pottery, because interesting people have interests. I'm more the outdoors type than the nightclub type. I like to camp, hike and swim. But I love living in the city, and going out to pubs and cafes. I also love checking out live music, theater, and pretty much any other form of art. Any of these activities are even more exciting when I get to try them while traveling.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I hope to explore as many parts of the world as I can. My desire for new experiences often compels me to jump on a bus, train, or plane, book a place in a backpackers' hostel, and assuage my sense of adventure. Put simply, I love to travel.

On a more practical level, I have worked as a primary school teacher for some years now, when work is a thing I am doing. I chose this profession when I realized it was time to find a grown up job. Some days, I enjoy it very much. Other days, I am tempted to run screaming out of the classroom. I could write a whole lot about how great it is to get to help shape the young minds of our future generation. But I wouldn't be honest if I didn't also mention that school holidays are pretty fucking awesome.

I also did a Masters by research in Education, which kept me off the streets for a few years. Who knows what might tickle my fancy next?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Apparently, I read a lot of narrative/memoir/autobiography. Other people's lives inspire me, particularly when a person overcomes adversity, then writes about it with clarity. I also own a lot of children's books, which is both a testament to my current profession and lifetime love of books. The rest of my shelves are dominated by instructional books, (some outlining hobbies I have yet to engage in), 1960's political history, old textbooks (some are for subjects I never studied, but still wanted to learn about) and pulp fiction.

Lately, I have been listening to entirely too much Kimya Dawson. I also have a soft spot for Ani Difranco and Lisa Mitchell. But when I don't need to get in touch with my inner self-righteous feminist with a guitar, I often listen to music from generations that precede me. Sometimes, it's Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel or The Grateful Dead. Other days it might be David Bowie, The Clash, Elvis Costello, James Taylor or Joni Mitchell.

Many of my favourite musicians arguably hit their peak sometime in the 1990s, such as The Lemonheads, Tom Petty, The Shins, Erin Mckeown, Modest Mouse, Belle and Sebastian, They Might Be Giants, The New Pornographers and Built to Spill. I try to be aware of music that's been recorded in this decade. Beirut, The Mountain Goats, Sarah Blasko, Lisa Mitchell, Regina Spektor and Florence + the Machine come to mind.

I like to cook Mexican food, usually simplistic versions of the foods I ate when I studied abroad. I generally prefer simple meals over long preparation times, but if I really like you, I might endeavor to prepare something more elaborate. I enjoy Thai, Indian, Italian, Japanese and the cuisine of cultures I have forgotten to mention.

I was five years old when I saw The Simpsons premiere on prime time TV. Other TV shows have tickled my fancy. But I strongly identified with Lisa Simpson as a child, and have been hooked ever since. I went on an Archer bender while I was teaching up north. The absurdity helped keep me sane.

I watched Empire Records 37 times when I was in Year 8; it was alright too. I'm a big fan of Hedwig and The Angry Inch and Shortbus. I once filmed John Cameron Mitchell at a forum on Queer Media when I was an intern at Dyke TV in Brooklyn. But mostly, TV and movies serve as a backdrop to my crafting activities.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the freedom to travel
wool for knitting
music for listening and playing
iphone for keeping connected to my friends
my vibrator
sensible shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How lucky I am.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
feeling really old if I am content to be at home enjoying some "quiet time".
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an online dating profile.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you read my profile, and still want to get to know me. I am eager to make new friends. I generally don't want to date anyone who I wouldn't be friends with, though.

I don't know you. I've at least crossed paths with all of my top matches. I had no idea everyone I knew had a profile on here before I joined. Why did no one mention it? Is internet dating still taboo? I guess the matchmaker stuff must work, since I do have stuff in common with the people I already hang out with.

Please don't message me if you are too lazy to use punctuation rules and a spell checker. I know this alienates people who struggle with literacy, and it makes me sound elitist and judgemental. But I won't put in any effort to respond to you if you put no effort into a message.

I also don't want to hear from you if you are betraying a lover. I have no desire to be involved in cheating.
