I prioritize improving myself, the world, and the lives of others.
I would like to find someone who strives for the same. I'm vegan.
It's a lifestyle, and not just about what I eat. Don't be fooled
into thinking I eat salads all day! I'm a bit of foodie, and going
out to eat with my friends is probably one of my favorite social
I'm probably one of the most emotionally stable people you'll meet.
I don't tolerate drama or emotional lability well. I like to
surround myself with positive people who strive for a healthy mind
and body. I'm happy in a variety of environments, from relaxing at
home to being active in nature to enjoying the city.
I am self-employed, and try to limit my work-for-pay, so that I
have plenty of time to volunteer for the many non-profits that I
love. I am an activist for animal rights, human rights, and the
environment. I love to travel, and usually take several trips a
year. NYC, DC, Austin, California, and Florida are the places I
visit the most, but my favorite places tend to involve the ocean,
and being in it.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm trying to make the world a better place & end some of the
suffering. Working some, volunteering some, traveling some,
snuggling with my dogs at all other times.
I’m really good at
Packing. (as in a suitcase, not a weapon) I'm not so great at the
unpacking, though. I always seem to postpone that until it's time
to pack for my next trip.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair? I'm short? My eyes?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I really don't have a lot of time to read books, and grad school
mostly killed any pleasure I once found in reading. I spend most of
my time reading psychological reports, dissertations, essay
questions, and other work stuff. My favorite book of all time is
The Monk by Matthew G Lewis. Not only is it a brilliant gothic
novel, but Lewis wrote it in less than 3 months when he was still a
I'm more into independent films than big hollywood movies, but I
like any movie that is well done. I love Bollywood and Asian
horror. I also like 3D movies, and the DBox theaters like they have
in Austin and Houston and apparently every other big city besides
Dallas. I try to make most every film festival in the DFW
My musical tastes are pretty varied, from alternative, old country
and western, rock, pop, Broadway tunes, Top 40, to Indian music. I
love local music and indie bands, but jazz puts me to sleep, and
new country hurts my brain. Some of my favorite bands include Blue
October, Band of Skulls, Dashboard Confessional, Bat for Lashes,
Airborne Toxic Event, and Third Eye Blind.
I'm vegan, but don't think for a second that I only eat salads. I
do love raw food, though, as well as Thai, Korean, Indian,
Ethiopian, Mexican, and Mediterranean. Some of my favorite dishes
are pad kee mao, mandoo, sukhi bhaji, pizza, purple rice pudding,
and anything with chocolate, of course.
The six things I could never do without
It doesn't take much to make me happy. I'm pretty sure I could do
without pretty much everything except food, water, air, and shelter
from harsh weather. However, six things that make my life
fan-f*cking-tabulous are travel, the amazing people in my life, my
iPhone, my dogs, being outdoors, and yummy vegan food.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to make the world a better place and how to help others... my
patients, my friends and family, and all the animals in the world.
Well, that and where and what I'm going to eat the next time I'm in
On a typical Friday night I am
at home watching a movie or goofing off on the internet, putting
off the work I need to do.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am on waaaay too many dating sites.
I'm not really a fan of the label bisexual. It seems to imply to
others that I'm having sex with at least two people at any given
time, which is actually at least two more than reality. It also
implies that gender is a dichotomy instead of a continuum, with
which I don't agree. I consider myself pansexual. Gender isn't an
issue in attraction for me.
You should message me if
You are vegan or vegetarian for sure, but also if you are
intelligent, compassionate, attractive, fit, like to do outdoorsy
and active things, or think we have anything else in common! Also,
only if you are interested in a being in a monogamous relationship.
No couples. Seriously.
