My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Optimistic, curious, affectionate, open-minded, kind, playful, active, geeky, flexible, patient.

Get around on two wheels. Work on four wheels.

Cook at home slightly more than eat out but very much enjoy both.

East coast transplant (with a midwest mitten stint). Most of my Portland decade has been spent in N/NE but mixing it up in SE these days.

Hitting the road (or the skies) once or twice or thrice a year.

Sharing some on here but prefer to share more in person.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to seek out that which makes me happy while doing as little harm as possible.

Enjoying much of what Portland has to offer.

The incomplete list of things that make me smile and wonder from A to (almost) Z:
art walks, biking [transportation & fun], climbing [bouldering to be exact], dancing [house parties over bars over clubs], games [card, board, outdoor, roleplaying, strategy], hockey [playing roller, watching ice], library [movies, music, books, internet], movies [Laurelhurst, Living Room], outer space, pizza, serendipity, travel, warm nights, yoga, zines.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Adapting. Balance. Running around. Relaxing. Tangents. Taking a photo of you doing that thing.

Food - Mostly healthy. Many weeks include burritos, fruits, veggies, rice, potatoes, pasta, water, tipples, and trying something new here or there. Thai, Middle Eastern, Indian, and Ethiopian all rank up there too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Play (and rest).
Growth (and learning from mistakes).
Laughter (and friends).
Travel (and coming home).
Patience (and persistence).
Sleep (and cuddling).
Love (and honesty).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
This, that, and the other thing... such as the universe, that cute girl on a bike, dinner, which faraway friend to visit, why the world can't seem to get along, getting my geek on, pie (pizza or pumpkin), words, and so on.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Usually up to something different than the previous week. Could be outside or inside. Relaxing or staying up late. Solo or with others.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
This online dating thing can be a little weird but did meet a few great people during an earlier stint with it, so I'm back to at least put myself out there. Still, it seems not-quite-right to learn too much about a person from a computer screen, so I'm just trying to present a general overview here and saving specifics for more direct communication.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think our meeting has the potential for awesome.

You are enjoying life while trying to make it even better.

You combine smart, silly, sweet, and sass. Feisty is fun too.

You enjoy busy days and lazy days and those in between.

You fall outside the M-F/9-5.

You prefer to meet up after exchanging a couple messages (as opposed to a lengthy back-and-forth chat) to see if there is any real life chemistry. No matter how well people connect online, you just don't know if there's any true compatibility until meeting in person. If we click, perhaps it can lead to friendship? If we connect deeply, maybe something more? If we fall flat, going our separate ways is okay too. I mean, obviously.
