My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Okay take 37 or so...

I am a fixer and a healer. That means when there is a problem I like to work to fix it whether it is a clogged sink or a broken heart. I often spend a lot of time talking and processing with people. I enjoy being someone that people know they can go and talk to. I get strength from supporting people. I also get strength and energy from being productive in general. I have trouble relaxing, turning my mind off, and enjoying the moment. That is not to say I can't, but it doesn't come that naturally to me. I hope to find people who can help me with this.

I challenge people. If you say something that I don't agree with, I am likely to say something about it. I enjoy discussion and value others people's opinions. If I am wrong about something, I want to know. Being wrong is learning something new.

I am sensitive and I care. This can be very painful in a world that is so self-centered and insensitive, but I would not go back (even though sometimes I wish to numb it all). Joy! I enjoy a lot of feedback and support and try to provide that as well. This means acknowledging actions and feelings often as well as being willing to listen.

I do not believe in monogamy, marriage, or breeding. I am open to exploring all different relationship models as long as there is honest and open communication.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
fixing cars, working with food not bombs, trying to help, talking to people about ployamory, veganism, and other politics. trying to love people although i have found that many people do not want my love which makes me sad. also, i have trouble being loved.

practicing yoga and learning to be more accepting of myself, others, and the world. i am trying to just be.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I can fix anything. At least anything that can be fixed. I also build things. I love working with new materials and trying things I have never tried before.

Being there when the shit hits the fan.

Cooking, i have an amazing talent of scrounging whatever happens to be around and creating something to eat. also, i dumpster a lot.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Music. Friends. Intimacy. Yoga. Sunshine. A challenge. intellectual stimulation.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Lately I have been trying to figure out the line that is self-righteousness. I think if you are having honest discussion about issues, this is a very tricky line to draw.

Feminist philosophy and how to get more people to identify as a feminist. Basically if you are not a feminist, you are either unaware of what that means, or you are an asshole. https://www1.villanova.edu/villanova/artsci/gws/resources/myths.html

Balance: How to live a more sustainable, healthy and happy life. How to become a better person in every way; mechanic, cook, lover, and friend to name a few.

Why so many people, including myself, get lonely when there are so many of us out there. And how to be a better slut and love more, not just through sex but in general.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
hopefully enveloped in a discussion about something important and/or cuddling
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A series of traumatic events have left me with a very low sex drive, and all but impotent. I am probably not able to jump into a sexual relationship with anyone, but with a little patience and some intimacy, I promise it will return. My body basically shut me down and it is scary and embarrassing.

i am an aspiring slut.
