Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
At the moment I am interested in dating and making new friends, so
let's meet up for coffee (or tea as I don't drink coffee) and see
where things go. I have no preference regarding race, ethnicity,
sexual or gender orientation in my partners or friends. She/her
pronouns are fine.
I say what I mean and mean what I say.
Activism and politics are my passion.
I am happiest when I am wandering in a park or garden with my
camera or hanging with friends playing board games.
I often find myself looking at nature with childlike wonder. If we
didn't laugh at the small things we would cry when faced with the
overwhelming suffering in this world. I choose to laugh and ride
every carousel I lay eyes on.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
My life is a bit in flux. I fought and won my battle with Lyme
Disease. After a few years in treatment I went back to school and
graduated with an MSW. I now work as a therapist on a psychatirc
hospital. I hope to move closer to NYC in the near future.
On the whole I love to spend time with my cat Ginger, my family,
friends, the newspaper, and a good book.
I’m really good at

Also: making people laugh, photography, cross-stitch, giving
massages, and deep conversations about politics, mental health,
sexuality, film, or nonsense.
The first things people usually notice about me

My glasses, curly hair, and smile.
I look a lot younger than my age though I have an old soul. I was
sitting in my supervisor's office the other day and one my
coworkers who I do not know very well thought I was a patient. This
was on an adolescent unit, where the oldest patient is 17 years
old. We had a good laugh about it.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A favorite book?! I could go on forever about that; but I love
books on history and politics because I want to understand the
world in order to change it. Novels and memoirs nourish my soul.
There is so much to be learned and explored by opening the pages of
a good book.
Some of my favorite books include Snuff, Nervous Conditions, The
German Ideology, this Common Secret: my journey as an abortion
doctor, sexuality and socialism, The Lord of the Rings.
I like movies, just not horror films because I will scream in my
chair the whole
Yup, I watch TV. My favorites are How to Get Away with Murder, Game
of Thrones, Big Love, Coupling, Sherlock, and Dr. Who. I grew up
watching and will always love my 1980s and 1990s Britcoms, M*A*S*H,
and Monty Pythons Flying Circus.
I like whatever music is playing, especially if I can dance to
I am also a huge fan of theater, musicals, opera, and ballet. Some
of my favorite shows include: Spring Awakening, Hedwig and the
Angry Inch, Wolf Hall, Macbeth, Hamlet, Something Rotten!, Les
Miserables, and My Fair Lady. I adore Shakespeare and am working of
reading and viewing all the plays.
I like to explore different culinary experiences by trying out
restaurants that serve authentic ethnic food as one part of
learning about other cultures. My favorites at the moment are Thai,
South Indian, and Greek food. I'm not much of a cook but I try.

If I don't have plans I usually try and catch a movie at a local

When I have plans I am usually hanging out with friends, catching a
play in NYC or locally, happy hour with my coworkers, or catching
up on reading.
