My self-summary
full disclosure: i travel a lot. my job, which i totally love, takes me overseas quite a bit, but i do touch down from time to time. and when i do, i promise i'm worth hanging out with. (update: a combination of some weddings and other personal obligations currently has me home for over six months. it's the longest i've ever been here so am eager to find new playmates and explore.)

i'm fun, playful, and love to laugh. a lot. i know that's cliche on this site, because who doesn't love to laugh, right? but it's true and i make a serious point of not only surrounding myself with funny people, but also of not taking anything too seriously and trying to find some humor wherever i can (which leads to some very dark humor at times, thanks to my job - thick skin recommended). i think i'm pretty funny, too, but you'll have to decide that for yourself. i also love to eat, drink, dance, and get into a little trouble, in any order or any combination.

i'm originally from northern california but moved to DC about two years ago. i left my heart in san francisco and hope to return there eventually, but in the meanwhile DC isn't so bad. when i'm here, a burger and a beer on a rooftop is pretty close to ideal, unless it's wintertime of course (which i'm just learning about after a decade in seasonless san francisco). a burrito or nachos and a margarita would be super ideal, but alas, DC is not california.

despite my transient ways, i do eventually plan to be home more and have a bit more stable existence, but i'm not sure "settling down" would describe what i'm looking for. i'd like to share the world with someone, not just a backyard.
What I’m doing with my life
seeing the world, earning lots of hotel points, trying to avoid malaria and deep vein thrombosis, and contemplating what i want to do next. am also currently trying to get cozy with my power drill - just learned how to put in anchor screws (don't laugh- i have other skills, just not these. yet.)

i work with refugees, so my work takes me all over the world, sometimes to great places, sometimes to dodgy places, but almost always to places where i don't speak the language and have to pay to use a toilet (which may or may not be more than a hole in the ground). regardless, it's always an adventure and i've yet to spend time in a place where i didn't manage to eek out some fun.
I’m really good at
- handstands.

- the worm

- making people feel better.

- finding the ice machine on my floor.

-getting you out of your comfort zone but still making you feel comfortable.
The first things people usually notice about me
probably my energy (i have a lot).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
last read was mindy kaling's book and am now reading lawrence's wright's book on scientology. other titles of late usually include something involving the middle east, which is a big interest of mine. all time favorites include: lolita, a confederacy of dunces, 100 years of solitude, angle of repose (or anything by wallace stegner, really), geek love, the godfather, lonesome dove, the girl with curious hair, count of monte cristo, still life with woodpecker, east of eden, and some others i can't recall at the moment.

music runs the gamut, but in a nutshell, i mostly have the musical taste of a 14 year old girl, with some indie sensibilities. i also really, really love house music. don't be annoyed if i don't get your obscure punk or icelandic rock references. i'm just not that cool.

food: i could live on mexican and thai alone, but i'm usually pretty far away from those options, and they certainly aren't DC's strong points. i'm learning to like some middle eastern stuff, although it's been a bit of a battle (but who can really argue with a huge plate of grilled meat?). i need a good medium-rare cheeseburger at least once every couple weeks, and depression could ensue in the complete and prolonged absence of bacon. other favorites include tomatoes, figs, and most cheese. i'm also a big fan of sushi and oysters. i like beer, love wine, and couldn't do without the regular makers mark manhattan and margarita. whiskey definitely is my poison of choice.

shows- the misfits (if you have not seen this, stop reading now and watch it- you will thank me), girls (lena dunham is a genius), the mindy project, game of thrones, arrested development, walking dead, archer, 30 rock, the colbert report, parks & rec, and hoarders. and i kind of have an odd weakness for house when i'm overseas.
The six things I could never do without
(in no particular order, other than the friends/fun part):

1. my friends
2. fun
3. duct tape
4. bacon
5. my iPhone & earphones
6. hot sauce
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how lucky i am to have a passport that gets me almost anywhere, anytime.

why people insist on standing so damn close to the baggage claim conveyor belt that no one can actually see their bag. if everyone would just step back 5 feet it'd all be so much easier. which i guess leads me to ponder-point #3: where is everyone's damn common sense?

(and maybe i'm not always thinking about these things, but lately i have been. i never claimed to be deep.)
On a typical Friday night I am
ideally eating a meal with close friends, good food, and ample wine/beverages, followed by some good bars and possibly debauchery. but in actuality i'm probably either in a hotel room watching al jazeera english or wandering random foreign city streets checking out what other people do on friday nights (and then trying to figure out how to explain to the taxi driver where my hotel is).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
me, private?

maybe that i actually prefer nescafe. or that i love country. and a couple maroon 5 songs.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 28–44
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
you're intelligent and have a warped sense of humor, open mind, kind heart, sense of adventure, wanderlust, self-confidence but humility, something to talk about, and a healthy appetite. i promise to provide all of the above, as well.

you're not judgmental or religious. also, you're honest with yourself and others.

you don't exclude women your own age in your desired age range group. (i mean, come on.)

i don't really care what your interests are, so long as you have some. (i mean, i care about them, i just don't care which they are.) whether we dig the same things or you show me something totally bizarre and new like, say, noodling for catfish, it could be fun, right?

total dream situation: you are all of the above, have your life in order (yes, that means decent job/income and some stability) but still are crazy fun, have a voracious appetite for travel, and could see california in your future.

side note: a lot of people think they're funny, but they're not. like, maybe their grandmother or some lame girls at work think they're funny. but they're not. i really want you to be legitimately funny. pretty please.
