I am very clever and tend to speak quickly. I drink a lot of wine. I am a loyal friend. I kind of wish it was still the 90s before everyone was addicted to their cell phones--I have very fond memories as a teenager, making new friends by getting lost in the city or waiting for hours at "the cube" at St. Mark's Place. Nowadays those little serendipitous moments tend not to happen with a cell phone safety net, which is a shame.
I have traveled all over the world. I sometimes get concerned that humans don't do enough to help each other out. I like making art, I like to dance, I like to swim, I do yoga. I also like meeting up to ride bikes like I am still 10 years old when it is nice outside. I try to do it all with passion, but grace. Pretty much everyone I have ever dated has told me I am the most fun person they have ever met, so you are in for a good time.
Books: The Great Gatsby, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, anything by Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, or Margaret Atwood.
Movies: I like nostalgic movies--80s high school John Hughes, Almost Famous, old movies, foreign movies, interesting movies. I could sit and watch Saturday Night Fever if my hair was on fire, I love that damn movie so much.
Music: New Wave, punk, old school hip-hop, metal, industrial, anything played on Little Stevie's Underground Garage. If it has a beat and I can dance to it, we are in business.
Food: I actually really like cooking for myself, and I am very good at it. I enjoy eating healthfully and mindfully, but have evolved away from a vegetarian diet because I enjoy eating fresh fish and my mom's delicious home cooking. (Those skills didn't come out of nowhere). But I have retained my awesome vegan chocolate stout cupcake recipe.
Here's maybe some more important information--when NOT to message me:
1) If you already have kids. Sorry, I'm sure they are awesome, but I don't want them to be a part of my dating life.
2) If you have cats. I am highly allergic to them, and because of that, I really don't like them. It's not going to be fun if you have to keep your pets away from me every time I go to your place.
3) Can't go wrong with proper grammar and proper manners. If you're not up for either, I'm not up for meeting you.
Finally, a note on my sexual identity--I chose sapiosexual because I am just as likely to find a man or a woman attractive if I find them intelligent, or sassy, or witty, or whatever causes that little spark. I don't prefer any other identifiers. Similarly, if you don't prefer the identifiers man or woman, that works for me too. I'd rather have someone message me and we can see if we have a connection, than thinking they are out of the running because I checked the wrong box on a dating site ;-)
