A good friend recently said, "You have been dating wookiees when what you need is a jedi." I'm not ready to rush into anything, but he may have a point.
I would prefer a more organic settings to meet each other,
but I have realized that I don't want to waste a lot of time with
people I share no interests with. So :)
I would guess that most of us are looking for healthy partners who have good relationships with family, friends, and exes (especially if
co-parenting). People who have goals, care about and respect
themselves, and manage their money well are also fair expectations. :)
I am into trying new activities and foods, plays, board games/cards, yoga/pilates, climbing, roller coasters, live comedy, camping, jogging, hot tubs, spas, LGBT events, Free Thinking Parenting group activities, philosophical conversations about politics or science, dinner parties or cookouts, dancing, finding adventures together, volunteering, sitting by the fire in my yard or house, taking my kids to the science museum, etc.
But really, it's life at home that is super important to me... a simple evening of making dinner together and getting the kids ready for bed can be surprisingly fun and romantic if we make it that way.
I'm a bit of a foodie... I LOVE when people cook for or with me: Japanese, Italian, Indian, Vegan, Moroccan, Mexican, Yum...
If you want a party girl or need that lifestyle yourself we won't
be a likely match. I am not into bars, TV sports, horror films,
video games, fast food, wasting money, hunting or fishing, loud
crowded places, waking up super early, drama or secrets, getting
drunk, or smoking anything. It's not that I can't enjoy a party, it's just that for the most part I don't care or seek them out.
Best of luck on your search! Have some fun- we only live once :)
I have a degree in philosophy, psychology, and family violence prevention. I am going to school for nursing and plan to become a nurse practitioner and/or midwife. I also plan to be on the ethics board of the hospital.
I currently advocate for children in court.
I just moved into a new place, so I am spending time getting it set up the way I want it... I'm in need of a trip to Ikea :P
I am a Unitarian Universalist. I love my fellowship. :) There are lots of cool atheists with children that I spend time with there.
I'm really bad at:
reading your mind
The first thing I notice about people is their teeth or mischievous smile...
I love music. It soothes me in times of pain, and energizes me in times of joy- or when I am running. I listen to all kinds.
My movie choices are eclectic but oh well; "The Brave Little Toaster," "Kissing Jessica Stein," "Sliding Doors," "Kill Bill," "The Count of Monte Cristo," "Ever After," "Erin Brockovich," "Step Mom," "Knocked Up," "The Family Man," etc. My sister loves cheesy chick flicks so I've seen plenty of those. For some reason I like prison break movies and anything with an element of time travel or fate.
TV: The Daily Show, Arrested Development, House, L-Word, Sex and the City, Lie to me... I honestly don't have cable or use a TV in my house... I like watching a series on hulu or netflix with another person but I don't really use much time for TV alone.
Food! I have been a vegetarian for about 22 years now, and am a lot more vegan these days. I love sushi, indian, pizza, italian food... Some places I like are Pizza Luce, Broaders, Indian lunch buffets, Q-Cumbers, Paielli's Bakery in Kenosha Wisconsin, WildBerry Cafe in Illinois has amazing tiramisu pancakes, this cuban place in South Beach Florida, and a number of places in NY and CA. If you know of a great restaurant do tell! :)
People: My dad, my three little girls, my closest friends that have been in my life for over a decade
I'm extremely passionate about consent and how consent works within the medical community, within relationships of every kind, and in alternative communities. I'm sure my graduate school thesis will be based in this topic.
Sometimes I am at home with my kids or out doing something kid friendly like going to the park, plays, friends houses, walks, bike rides, ice skating, canoeing, etc.
Other times I get a babysitter and see friends. I am pretty flexible and open. :)
I like fairly nerdy euro-games.
I am a sapiosexual polyamorous person for the most part. This doesn't mean I can't enjoy monogamy, it just means I'm a lot more flexible than that.
