I don't do casual hook-ups & I'm not interested in sex without emotional attachments; so if you're only on here looking for sex, keep moving. I'm not for you.
I enjoy people who understand the importance of their words and actions matching. I enjoy people who aren't afraid to be emotionally available and to try new things.
I am honest, quirky, funny, and expressive.
I am a writer. That means I often have Lively conversations & frustrating fights with the voices in my head (if you get that, then we'll get along fine. If you find that odd & disturbing then we won't.) I write fiction & I am happiest when I spend hours alone with only those voices in my head & bring them to life on paper. I live for those moments when I am immersed in their world & discover what makes them tick by putting them in challenging situations & seeing what happens.
This is a core part of who I am.
I'm non monogamous.
I'm a vibrant mix of tomboy, irrepressible romantic, dreamy philosopher, badass independent spirit, & shy gentle creature.
Unless you want me to jump out an airplane or swim with sharks. I'm allowed two irrational fears and those are it.
To make up for it, I have had a lot of wacky adventures. Although that may also be the writer in me craving experiences. I'm sure that spontaneous road trip where we ran out of money & had to spin stories to strangers to get donations for gas money will end up in a novel at some point.
A bottle of champagne chilling in my fridge is paramount to a good life. You never know when you need to celebrate the little victories or cheer up a friend in need.
I also have a firm no drama policy for my life. As such I have no desire for the drama that comes with secret affairs, so save yourself a wasted effort and don't ask.
I often have an irreverent sense of humor, but I don't like crass.
I grew up in the South. As a displaced southern girl, I have a fondness for practicing the art of flirting. Flirting is meant to make the other person feel good. It is not about sexual aggressiveness. Sending me a picture of your bits is not a flirtation and will get you nothing but scolded. Engage me in witty banter and you may just get yourself a date.
Sexuality should be celebrated not shamed, but if it's all you have to talk about then you won't hold my attention.
I value honesty and consideration.
I require integrity, transparency, and thoughtfulness. Kindness and compassion are must haves too.
I'm not a damsel in distress and I don't need to be rescued, but I do like a man who knows how to treat a woman with respect and a little bit of old school chivalry. Pull out my chair, open a door, offer me your arm when walking down a street, these are things I will greet with a smile and appreciate.
I'm pretty focused on my writing these days, but I do love a nice flirtation. If the chemistry is right, I'm open to seeing where it goes.
I love to dance, hike, watch movies, go to comedy shows, & try out new things. I have far too many playlists on Pandora. Each one is a tiny snapshot encapsulating a moment in my life. It's funny how music does that. Every time I hear the Cowboy Junkies or the Sneakerpimps, I am transported back to a road trip with the first girl I fell in love with. My Spanish Guitar station reminds me of my first year in college and seeing the aurora for the first time.
I have a broad intellect and enjoy being able to discuss a variety of topics. You get brownie points if you can make me laugh.
