My self-summary
I am originally from London, UK, and moved to the D.C. area a few years ago after spending a few years in Nashville. I am non-religious, sex-positive, and left-leaning, but I'd rather talk cooking, art, and pop culture than politics. Seriously though: black lives matter, and feminism is not a dirty word. If you feel differently then that's a dealbreaker. I have a nice apartment and I keep it clean. My two biggest passions are art and cooking. I am a big nerd with an interest in space and nature. I am also planning on leaving DC in a year or two to move back to Nashville, so if you are exclusively looking for a long term monogamous relationship in DC then that may be an issue.

After doing the online dating thing for a while now, I have come to the conclusion that the most important ingredient in a good match is something that isn't identifiable online: chemistry. Something about body chemistry and pheromones is hugely important in finding a good match, and it doesn't happen often. Sometimes all the ingredients can be right but the chemistry just isn't there, and other times you can feel an amazing sustainable chemistry with somebody really unexpected... So I try to keep an open mind about new people.

That said, I tend to be attracted to big personalities, extroverts, and introverts who present as extroverts. I want to meet someone who is physically active and energetic, who embraces my enthusiasm for life, but who has their own enthusiasms to contribute as well. Someone whose idea of a perfect day trip resembles driving out to hike in the mountains, grabbing lunch at a farm you read about in a food blog online, and stopping off to people watch and look for something cool and chic at an antiques fair on the way home. Plus rum based cocktails. I also want to find somebody who likes to be affectionately snuggley at times. 'Affectionately snuggley' is a euphemism for building pillow forts, concocting experimental hot chocolate recipes, and watching Harry Potter movies.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Do all these people on OKC *really* care so much about the Oxford comma that they have to mention it on a dating profile? Are they really so put off by the thought of dating someone whose intellect isn't reflected in their grammar that they need to establish the fact in their profile? And it's only ever mentioned by white people in their 20's who love David Sedaris, it seems like a conspiracy to me, is it code for something? Is it a scientology thing? I'm on to you lot. It makes me suspicious, distrustful and incredulous.
You should message me if
You wear your hair short and your lipstick dark. (I'm joking, but only mostly)

Regardless of what you think of my profile as a dating prospect you think we would get along well, or if your need an accomplice for pokemon go excursions.
