Though my values are not traditional, my morality is based on harm
and fairness. I do not believe in god or an afterlife, so how we
treat each other in *this* life is all we have and all that
matters. I take this very seriously (and not much else).
If I were cast in a major motion picture, I think I’d be the
“hooker w/ a heart of gold” stock character. Tough exterior, rough
around the edges, but internally a big softy. (Sigh. If you don't
understand what I'm talking about here, wikipedia it. Hint: I'm not
actually a sex worker. BUT, if I *were* I would still expect to be
treated w/ dignity and respect. If you disagree, we are probably
not compatible. Also, if you do not get the sarcasm and humor in
this description, we are probably not compatible.)
I vacillate between thinking I'm the baddest bitch to ever walk the
planet to believing I'm the biggest loser to ever exist. I feel
like that's normal. ;) Most of the time, I feel strong and
confident and capable, but sometimes these emotions give way to
feelings of weakness and inadequacy. I guess I’m looking for
someone who sees me as the former, but accepts me when I’m the
I think that's why self-deprecating humor is so appealing to me. It
acknowledges the neurotic, frightened children in all of us and
then laughs heartily. How delightful.
Profanity has no effect on me. You can call me a bitch, a whore, a
cunt, anything really, and I will not be the least bit offended.
Tell me I've been inconsiderate, however, and I'll be lethargic for
a week. Insults with substance will always have a much more
profound effect on me than meaningless profanity. I do enjoy
profanity when it is used in humor, however. Or to inject intensity
into a situation which really doesn't call for it. i.e. "This
fucking bagel won't toast!" Douse in a little sacrilege, all the
better. "Christ on a stick! If this fucking bagel doesn't fucking
toast I am going to punch babies!" Or, ya know, something like
that. I'm just riffing here.
I am probably one of the most assertive people I know and I will
not back down from an argument. I generally will never *start* an argument, either. And I will go out of my way to find common ground among people. I am big on inclusiveness.
While intellect is my number one turn on, pretension is my number one turn off. For instance, I think drinking wine out of a wine glass (especially when your at home, by yourself) is for amateurs. Are we enjoying a glass of wine, or congratulating ourselves on how fancy we are?
At the end of the day, the quality of the company you're with
matters much more than whatever activity you're doing. I've had the time of my life at a free event at the Nelson or sitting at home watching a movie b/c I was with people who were smart, funny, and engaging. I've been bored to tears at expensive dinners and bars b/c I was with people who didn't interest me.

Oh, btw, I also think people suck at introspection, so you should
take everything I say about myself w/ an enormous grain of salt. ;p
