My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My name is Meredith. I tried to do the open relationship thing, but it didn't seem fair to my boyfriend (now husband) since apparently I'm not so good at the whole jealousy thing. Maybe we can try again later, but right now this is a traditional, exclusive relationship. Which is really really too bad since the quality of guys on here recently took a turn for the awesome. :/ But I'm still up for going out and hanging out with new friends for sure.

I just graduated from SF State with my BA in anthropology in 2012 and now I'm in limbo figuring out what my next goal is. (Do you need an executive assistant? I am FUCKING AWESOME.)

I'm very crafty/domestic. I knit, sew, bead, and I can crochet and embroider, too. I love cooking. I graduated from culinary school in 2006.

I like animals, especially little dogs. Taking your dog for a walk would be an excellent date. Maybe your dog and my dog can be buddies.

I'm very interested in astrology and I believe that it works. I love to talk about it. I'm a double Libra and Pisces Moon, in case you're wondering. If I like you, I might do your chart. It's very educational.

I like to go dancing (though I'm not very good at it), and I'd rather drink at a club than a bar because I'm not a very good conversationalist. I don't believe in talking to fill silence. If I don't have something to say, I don't say anything.

(Sigh. Now I work in a very casual office environment so this next paragraph barely applies. Give me a reason to dress up, and I will!)
I'm very into this vintage/pin-up girl look, so I try to do my face and hair every single day. I wear a lot of dresses and other vintage-look stuff. I've posted a couple photos of this. Also, Marie Antoinette was one of my more recent fashion fixations. I'm trying to work some 18th century France into my normal clothes, but it's tough. *shrug* Ostrich feathers are just hard to pull off as a daytime look.

I am candid, impatient, and playful.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Trying to figure out what's going to happen now... paralegal certification? MA in Library Science? Cosmetology school? For now I've just joined a costume guild, so email me if you want to geek out. (Update: I think I settled on bookkeeping- do you teach? Need an entry level assistant?)

I'd like to travel more. In 2008 I went to Egypt and Paris (check my flickr account for photos!). We just came back from Morocco in October 2013. I'd like to travel more in Europe and go to South America.

My ambition is to be a student for the rest of my life. Learning and education are important and fun. I just started a quliting class, and I'm about to begin accounting fundamentals, and then maybe a calligraphy workshop. Join me?

I am also busy being a stepmom (my stepdaughter is 12) and thinking about my own future baby.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
... being domestic. Knitting, cooking, sewing, designing stuff, organizing, helping out in general. I love learning new skills.

I also love to play and I'll drag you in if you're even a little willing. I think it's important to remember how to pretend and have a good time doing things like riding carousel horses and playing on a playground.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am almost always overdressed for every occasion. Especially casual ones. (SF guys take note- no teeshirts on first dates.)

I've been told that I seem "mysterious." Whatever. Someone suggested "detached," which I feel is a good word. If you're very observant, you might notice the way I scurry behind friends or run away when being introduced to people. It's not that I don't like you, I promise. If I didn't want to meet people, I wouldn't have a profile here, n'c'est pas?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: I like retold fairytales, biographies, historical fiction, popular nonfiction. I hate the entire "short story" genre. Character development is important to me. I just finished book 5 of Game of Thrones (and season two). I'm also reading a book on Russian aristocrats during the 1917 revolution.

Movies: Johnny Depp is the hottest guy on earth, so any of his films. He's also an amazing actor. So is Audrey Tautou, and Meryll Streep. My favorite film of all time is The Bridges of Madison County, which is a cry-your-eyes-out film about a lonely housewife in Iowa and her lost love-of-her-life. The acting is incredible. It's based on a book, which is equally sad. I also cried during Gone with the Wind. I love sad movies.
I tend to pay more attention to the use of light and color in films than the actual plot, so beautiful films like Marie Antoinette (2006) and Velvet Goldmine are high up on the list. Also (unrelated) I like old films set in San Francisco, for obvious reasons. I like to see films in old theaters, too, like the Castro theater. I saw Milk there. That was emotional.

Music:
I LOVE mashups. Period. You want to go to Bootie on Saturday?
Also...
-Goth (Cure, The Smiths, Siouxsie, Voltaire, Cocteau Twins, Bauhaus, My Life with the Thrill Kill Cult)
-Disco/Gay Pop (Scissor Sisters, George Michael, Lady Gaga, Mika)
-Motown/Oldies/Philly Sound (Elvis, The Temptations, The Spinners)
-Bluegrass/Folk/Blues (Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Alison Krauss, Cat Stevens, Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco)
-Burlesque doesn't really fit in the folk categories, even though it's jazz/blues.
-Lots of classic rock, the cornier, the better.
And other random stuff. Music is not really my thing like it is for other people. Prefer to not listen to recent R&B, recent rap, or recent country. I know. Typical. I'm way more into...

Podcasts: I'm adding this because it kind of goes with music/interests/books. My favorite podcast is Stuff You Missed in History Class (not anymore, I hate the new hosts). I also like 60-Second Psych, This American Life (all things NPR), the Thomas Jefferson Hour, APM Dinner Party, and Slate's Culture Gabfest. Please suggest things to me- I also like the history lectures series' like the Byzantine Emperors series. Recently started a British history series, a history of oil, and Japanese history.

Food: non-spicy Indian food (the flavors are so intense- why cover it up with spiciness?), French-fusion just about anything, "new American" cuisine, Italian food (unoriginal, but comfortable and good), some not-too-crazy sushi, Americanized Chinese food (takeout), vegetable soup (homemade, please), risotto, portobello mushrooms (marinated and grilled), lamb, steak, waffles, pizza (of course, but hold the pepperoni and sausage, please), and a ton more. And anything my mom ever made.

By the way, vegetarians or vegans need not apply. I think my last boyfriend becoming a vegetarian contributed a lot to our break up. SRSLY. Not kidding.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
physical affection (not necessarily sex)
internet
portable music
something to read or knit (or embroider!) (or quilt!!)
iPhone
an excellent selection of kinda high-end restaurants with fully stocked bars (so many places do not keep mint, or cream, or even peach schnapps! wtf?!)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
FASHION
making stuff
chort0
kids and discipline, literacy, pregnancy, child development
polyamory and alternative relationship structure
social dominance and hierarchy
what the hell am I going to wear for (fill in the blank) next weekend
my little sister growing up
efficiency and organization
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Relaxing at home after a busy work day. I barely ever go out anymore. This is a major problem. My favorite club is Bootie at DNA, though I don't really like the crowd anymore). I also like Hubba Hubba and burning man parties in the summer. I also love costume events, like the Edwardian Ball, Dickens Faire, and renaissance festivals. Getting dressed up is half the fun (at least)! I'm going to go to more costume events this year with the Greater Bay Area Costume Guild. Open house next weekend (Jan 18).

I'd love to find a happy hour on the penninsula, and maybe a book club where we mostly drink wine and not talk books, though books are good too.

My favorite bar is Bourbon and Branch- you must have a reservation for it because they book out fast. Exclusivity is sexy, no?

If you see me out, please do say hi. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm really an open book.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
...you are a gentleman, with elegant table manners, a dapper dresser, looking for a lady for his arm. Same guidelines for a woman. Lots of machismo, please. My sexual orientation should really be "heteroflexible," since I'm mostly interested in men or masculine women.
...you know how to behave in public and be an adult, but you don't take yourself too seriously.
...you are a mythical hot bi babe (I am one myself), and you'd like to play with me or me and chort0. We're not trying that hard, I'm sure someone will find us when she wants to. Also, this might apply to guys, upon inspection. ;)
...conversely, I'm not really that interested in being the third in a threesome. I did do that successfully one time, but in that case I first had a relationship with one person and then was introduced to the partner and we hit it off. Please no more requests for threesomes without prior relationship.

Allow me to reiterate. Please eat meat. Please be a foodie. I don't live in SF to eat take out every night.

I am extremely turned off by cancellations. I know that sounds harsh, but if you cancel our first date, I will almost certainly not want to try again. It's a matter of respect and being considerate, even if you have a good excuse. I'm also paying attention to how much you tip. Have some compassion, please! Your server is working harder than you are.

Don't IM me on here, this IM thing sucks and I can't turn it off permanently. Just email and we can text like grownups, for heaven's sake!
