Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
TAKING A BREAK FROM ONLINE DATING:
There is worth in brevity so I am in a long-winded nutshell:
artistic, athletic, health-conscious, intuitive, intellectual,
funny/goofy, quirky, strong, spiritual, empathic, direct, intense,
laid-back and grounded yet driven and passionate about new ideas
and creating cool stuff with ambitious trail-blazers.
I value friendship, family, honesty, respect, reflection, personal
evolution, philosophy, rights, sexual freedom and fluidity, art,
music, freedom of expression.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I simply love traveling. I identify as a world citizen and in most
circles am not proud of being an American-in case you are not
paying attention, we don't have a good track record over these past
I came to Australia to get my masters at University of Sydney in
Human Rights policy-there is plenty of abuses here in downunder
(see: Aboriginal land rights and "boat people") I am interested in
social justice, law, psychological impacts of unlawful detention
etc. I will be moving home to San Francisco after three years of
working in Australia and gaining a permanent residency visa, which
allows me to return to OZ whenever I want because having two
summers in a year ain't too shabby :-) For now, I want to plant
roots again and work by my family and friends in SF further
pursuing my interests in law, social justice & human rights.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
understanding people, laughing, traveling, resolving conflict,
sports, kissing, dancing for hours on end, singing, uniting people,
finding the humor in a hard situation, positivity and perspective.
I use to play soccer for the United States U-21 National Team and
went to Wake Forest in North Carolina to play in the ACC. I have
since had a few knee injuries that keeps me off the field intensely
but I still love the game and plan to coach in the future. If you
like the REAL football (aka soccer) then we will probably have
something to talk about. If you are amped on testosterone and live
at the gym then probably not. I always try to strike a balance
between my athletic and artistic self. I am seeking someone who is
multi-dimensional and balanced.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
vibrance, plethora of hats, vocality, big smile, buff arms
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: ahh music is one of the most important things to me-Nina
Simone, Tribe Called Quest, Lupe Fiasco, Eva Cassidy, Aretha,
Janis, all the divas :-) jazz, soul, rock, hip-hop funk and blues.
I simply love both listening and playing music. I am a
singer/songwriter and believe music is the best healing medicine.
My mother said I sang in the crib before I could talk. If you are a
musician lets play some tunes!
Books- we need to talk in person about this: I majored in English
Literature and Philosophy at Wake Forest University in NC so the
classic novels are my jam. My bookshelf has so many different
genres that I am not quite sure what my bookshelf says about me. I
like feminist black women authors and political writers. I love
Alice Walker. I once took a "World Poetry" class with the late and
great, Maya Angelou*much respect*
Shows: Colbert=Rad. Also, John Stewart is sexy-I am a sapiosexual
who digs the smart, grey-fox types. Also like The Wire and 6ft
under. I am not a huge TV girl in general but I like good shows
without commercials. Still haven't seen "Breaking Bad" but its on
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
the sun, laughter, the ocean, social and kinetic movement, chosen
family, music, avocados
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-history and herstory-the past depends on perspective and who tells
-what music projects I want to do next
-the ocean, sea life and how we are destroying our oceans :-(
-what is truly important to me in this short life and what I need
to prioritize to make the best of my time and resources
-how relative 'time' really is
-social justice, social movements and social transformation,
racism, homophobia and equality
-spirituality and meditation and personal growth
-the human brain
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like a variety of people. I identify as bisexual, which means
that I have had sex with both men and women and not necessarily at
the same time.
So, Kinsey introduced the sexuality spectrum (im a 3). We are all
on that spectrum and we all have our own sensualities, tastes and
tendencies. I have dated both men and women in the past and have
experienced the differences between them in many ways to form a
unique perspective on gender and love.
I am balanced in my male/female energies and desire to meet other
people who have explored these things as well. I want someone open,
knows what they want, does not mess around, is deep and committed
but open for adventure and personal freedom. I am still looking for
my life partner and making friends along the way. I want to meet a
man who is my opposite but compliments me too. I want to meet
someone who expands my world exponentially, would like a family of
their own and shares in these same values.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you like my profile and think we could connect in a genuine way.
You want a cool friend or maybe more.
I've had many relationships in my life but am now looking for a
longer-term, deep connection with a grounded and loving man, who is
kind of a badass but doesn't know it-silent confidence and humility
is sexy. I am still looking for my partner in crime and a wonderful
guy to have a family with.
Please do not message me for threesomes or poly relationship
options because I am not interested. I am seeking a relationship
with a man, preferably intelligent, artistic, athletic, kind and
thoughtful-if you are showing your abs in your photos then you
probably are not for me. I like a guy who is confident enough not
to boast or to brag. I hope you have an active inner and spiritual
life. If you are of African-American descent then I will probably
find you much sexier than most white guys. I have gone black and I
just find it really hard to go back :-)
