My self-summary
I'm overweight. I'm working on it. There's even a Facebook page about it.

I'm Ian, and I value kindness, gratitude, and humor. I dislike cynicism, arrogance, and hypocrisy. I prefer talking about things and ideas over people. I like hugging, holding hands, and giving compliments. I baby talk my dog and cat. I believe you can be kind, spiritual, liberal, funny, and ambitious all at once. Do you?

I'm here looking for a partner in endeavors both silly and ambitious who cares about justice and puppies and humor and wellness and media. Is that you!?

If you want to have coffee, reach out.

Listening, being thankful, making people laugh, telling stories, finding excitement in the little things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm smiling my butt off, making a weird face, or talking too much.
