My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a barista, math student, intersectional feminist, bike commuter, socialist, beer asshole, bouldering noob, and nonbelieving Jew.

Once upon a time I lived in a place where I could buy fresh lychees for a buck a kilo, and every time I shop for produce I feel a twinge of regret that this is no longer the case, but I've learned to cope. I have now lived in Seattle for going on 3+ years, which blows my mind. I love this city and I love my life here.

Cooking is my favorite thing. Sometimes I bake bread.

I'm a B- photographer and an A+ camera dork. My favorites are my film cameras, all of which have been in this world longer than I have. The one I've used most is a '70s Pentax that only meters for 400 speed film due to a fall it took, with me, off a motorbike.

I believe in ethical non-monogamy and have been thinking a lot about the concept of relationship anarchy, which may or may not not be something I can practice emotionally, but is something I find really interesting intellectually. Either way, at this moment I'm not looking for anything serious — I recently separated from my primary partner (amicably and mutually), so I'm giving myself some time for my head to settle. I am, however, still excited about meeting new people and going on dates. There's more on this down in the very last section, but that section stupidly doesn't show up in Quick match. Hello, person who found me in Quickmatch! If you're on here expressly to search for dedicated romance, you should not message me. Well, not unless you think I'd be a fun person to hang out with while you continue that search.

I love to eat cheese, and I continue to eat cheese.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've begun the slow march toward a second degree! Right now it's just prereq math and science classes in part-time loads, but in four or five years I hope to be working for the forces of good in some field of applied science. The current plan is to pursue a BSCE degree. If you know more about the implications of that than I do, please mansplain to me with no remorse, because I'm sort of going in blind.

I also put in odd hours dispensing uppers, operating highly pressurized machinery, and engaging in a ritualistic process of gamified flirting. Some people call this lifestyle "barista." I prefer not to name it, just as I prefer not to name the crooked, onion-like milk patterns I pour in my lattes.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Cooking. Photography. Falling down Wikipedia rabbit holes. Looking like an idiot on a V3 bouldering problem.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The sun in a clear blue sky.

A sharp chef's knife.

My hot fuchsia TI-84.

A bicycle.

Temporary dorky hobbies.

My friends.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Saudade, my favorite non-English word.

Cities.

Passenger rail networks.

Dystopian visions of the future.

The banality of evil.

The bone-ality of the human skeleton. (I'm sorry.)

Expensive, weird booze.

Change.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Smashing garlic cloves with the flat of a cleaver. Or maybe dancing, or maybe doing homework. Probably doing homework.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I use a neti pot just about every day. My sinuses are stupid clean.

My celebrity crushes are Holly Hunter circa Broadcast News and Carrie Brownstein circa now.

I have a bidet toilet seat. It's life-changing.

I'm endlessly fascinated by the twisted anthropology of the professional wrestling industry.

This profile has almost no lies.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a hyperanalytical ball of neuroses who spends a lot of time thinking about food, has exquisite taste in men, and has wants and needs that are similar to mine. Right now I'm most interested in an FWB-type relationship. That acronym means different things to different people; what it means for me is that I'm very excited about the B's, but I don't think the B's are fulfilling or comfortable or fun unless it's clear that there is F potential. That means I'm looking for someone who is sweet, smart, funny, body-positive, blunt, and honest, with whom who I can share stories and laughs over coffee or drinks, and who is not a Republican or an Evangelist Christian or a bad tipper or whatever. I'm looking for communication, trust, fun times, and excuses to go drink glasses of Fernet Branca in new places with new people.

So if you're in a similar place, or a different but compatible place, you should get in touch.
