conversations, and beautiful things. I graduated from an Ivy League

I'm here, in online dating land, to meet people, not to chat
online. I'm turned on by brilliance and passion. I'm not looking to
commit to anything at the moment, but I'm always open to the
possibilities that come around.
I'm not the best at being social, I often want to crawl into bed

whatever is good to sing with.

The six things I could never do without

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Social justice! Feminism especially. Why why why people can't see
the inequalities that persist that are so wrong. So horrible. My
