I'm Ian. I value kindness, gratitude, and humor. I dislike cynicism, arrogance, and hypocrisy. I have a day job that I'm good at but it's not my be-all. 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 fitness and media. Is that you!?
