Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My best moments are when I'm able to be fully present with both my
internal state and external environment. When I can fully savor and
take in a moment, I am blissed out!
I thrive when faced with the challenge of exploring a personal
edge. A recent one has been cultivating self-compassion.
Others might say that I'm giving, nurturing, assertive, confident,
stubborn, and humorous. I am passionate about relationship and take
a lot of pride in cultivating deep, meaningful connections.
Although this self-summary sounds pretty serious, I don't take
myself too seriously. Having fun, laughing, and being playful and
silly are right up there with self-actualization. I mean, what's
the point if I can't have a little fun along the way?
Oh, you should also probably know that I am an empowered, sex
positive, feminist enthusiastically practicing polyamory. Say that
three times fast! I am in a loving, committed relationship and am
interested in dating individuals and couples.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working in a healing profession some of the time and exploring the
world (on both micro and macro scales) most of the time. One of my
favorite things to do while walking is to stick my nose in a flower
in the hopes of getting blasted with a sweet, sensuous fragrance.
Another favorite is wandering aimlessly in an unknown city.
I am passionate about the neuroscience of addiction and spend some
of my free time blogging about it so others can make informed
decisions about drug use. Knowledge is the best prevention!

In my spare time, which I make sure I have plenty of, I enjoy doing
things that stimulate me intellectually and spiritually. This can
range from philosophical debate over Pliny the Elder to backpacking
the Sierras to dancing at Public Works to deeply connecting with
another person to stuffing my face with the delicious foods found
in our beautiful city.
And like everyone else in the Bay Area I enjoy biking, yoga,
traveling, DIY projects (especially costumes), and spending as much
time outside as the fog and chilling Pacific winds will
Of late, I've also been very interested in pursuing new hobbies
such as acroyoga and sampling funk and soul tracks. I'm also
curious about kayaking, sailing, and surfing.
I’m really good at

cooking, being affectionate, communicating, pinball, nerding out,
listening, making you laugh, kissing, getting the cuddle puddle
started, playful sex, back rubs, directions (seriously, my internal
compass surprises ME at times), dancing, rhythm, upcycling,
decorating, and instigating (good things only, of course).
