My self-summary
I don't reply to a lot of messages, mainly because the people who usually contact me clearly have nothing in common with me. So be sure to check my question answer compatibility and keep your message simple.

I lived in the UK for 8 years. I'm a scheming radical. I'm a cider drinker and make my own during apple season. I also like foraging and sometimes make wine from wild flowers and/or berries. I really like to ride bikes. I bruise easily.
What I’m doing with my life
Working for the higher education industrial complex like everybody else here.

I'm involved in a bunch of community-oriented/activisty projects. I have an awesome group of friends that I ride my bike with regularly.
I’m really good at
Listening. Synthesizing and explaining complex social issues. Making puns. Explaining how the World Bank works. Writing really smug-sounding online dating profiles. Making gluten free vegan food.

I used to be a professional belly dancer. I don't perform in front of romantic interests, so don't ask.
The first things people usually notice about me
I smile a lot...?
I am on a bike
I am on a bike wearing a sundress (yes, with shorts underneath)
I am not on a bike, but have a helmet attached to my backpack
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I listen to/watch a lot of BBC radio/TV period dramas based on 19th century novels. Villette by Charlotte Bronte is one of my more recent favorites. Other than that, I prefer films that don't make me think a lot. I think too much already as it is.

Lately, I've been listening to a lot of Sharon Van Etten, Kimya Dawson, and Slow Club.

I'm vegan, with a few pesky food intolerances. This means I can't eat out at most restaurants. I usually make my own food and take it with me in a mason jar. The veganism started out as an environmental lifestyle thing, but then I developed feelings about animal welfare (!) and now there's no going back. I try not to be too sanctimonious and instead try to entice my friends and family into it by making delicious food. My latest triumph was a gfv rhubarb and juneberry cobbler.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Coal trains. Food. Climate change. How emo my dog looks. The strange inability of people to comprehend or address long-term problems. Cider. How to stop myself from turning into a Zooey Deschanel character. Climate change. Sinkholes. My hair. How to convince my punk friends that pink is the new black.

Also, why Marylanders aren't literally up in arms now that Martin O'Malley has ushered in the natural gas industry into our state that is 1/3 covered in shale deposits (yes, it's more than the marcellus; yes, it's really coming unless people take meaningful action to stop it; and yes, you really should do something about it).

...and also, whether the above sentence is an effective organizing strategy. It probably isn't, but it's not like the existing enviro nonprofits in MD are doing anything that would be more useful than pontificating about their uselessness on a dating website.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends. I'm a regular volunteer at the Bike Party.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm political, but I hate politics. I'm not sure if that makes sense.

Bi- and poly- curious. I'm not averse to monogamy. It has worked for me in the past and I'll stick with it if the right person comes along. But I'm pretty focused on a bunch of different social justice projects (a lifelong commitment) and have no space for barnacles, domesticity, or jet setting.
I’m looking for
  • Straight guys only
  • Ages 27–37
  • Near me
  • Who are single

You should message me if
...you have a wicked sense of humor
...you are ok with the concept of camping as a romantic getaway
...you're a bike person
...you think that capitalism, on the whole, has been a bad thing or at least that there's potential to build something better
