My self-summary
Disclaimers: //// I'm looking for FRIENDS. Platonic, I'm-probably-not-going-to-ever-fuck-you FRIENDS. If that's not ok with you, which is understandable (this IS a dating site), move along. I'm sorry to disappoint.
Also, I'm in an open relationship with stuporman . He's awesome, I'm crazy about him, and we're disgustingly schmoopy in public. You've probably seen us. Sorry. ////

That said, I'm looking for people to join me in a life of hanging out, happy hours, cooking, having outdoors adventures, and witty, sometimes profound conversations.

I like good food, coffee, cocktails and conversation. I try to live sustainably and seasonally. I like people, gin, berries and going out in the summer and books, whiskey, root vegetables and staying in in the winter. I don't mind solitude, but people don't suck, either. I like kids, but think kittens are cuter than babies (and pretty much everything else). I like places and people I can walk to. I'm an INFP and I'm poly.
What I’m doing with my life
I work with preschoolers. I love kids, but get plenty of them at work. My weekdays involve a lot of nurturing-face, patience, responsibility, and silly songs. My weekends are seriously devoted to hedonism, being wildly inappropriate, and sucking that tasty marrow out of life.

I do a lot of yoga, pilates, and meditation to balance those two.

I have a degree in Psychology. I find humans endlessly fascinating, disgusting, and loveable. Women's health is SO COOL. I love art and science and the overlap between them.

I'm a visual artist without much time to make art.

CATS.
I’m really good at
Understanding people who aren't me, managing my emotions, fine art and literary criticism. My parasympathetic nervous system kicks ass.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big eyes and long legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I look for wit and depth. I love literature and art. Give me some Jeanette Winterson and some Mary Oliver and the like. I have a deep and abiding love for young adult literature, but I also bury myself in some academic texts from time to time.

I like jazz and blues.

I like food that's real and tasty.

Here are a few specifics from recent weeks: Sherlock, Downton Abbey, Philadelphia Story, Jeanette Winterson, Boyhood, Virginia Woolf, eggs Benedict, Bulleit Rye.
The six things I could never do without
Luxuries I spend money on even when I'm broke:
macchiatos
local food
books
yoga/ dance
whiskey
therapy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Individuation and evolution. Specifically the intersection of what we evolved to do, what we've been acculturated to do, and what we choose to do.

It recently occurred to me that my ideal man is probably 70% Giles and 30% Spike, and my ideal woman looks like the little mermaid and thinks like Virgina Woolf. I, myself, am 50% Lorelei and 50% Rory.
On a typical Friday night I am
Realizing it must be Friday because of the raucous night life outside my apartment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a humanist often mistaken for a misanthrope. Or maybe the other way around.

My least favorite part about relationships is meeting new people.
You should message me if
You want to get a drink, and maybe make a regular thing of it. You're creative, intelligent, witty, low drama, and self-aware. You don't mind feminists of the of-course-we're-going-to-fuck-on-my-period persuasion.

Come woo me with your dazzling intellect and staggering good looks!
