My self-summary
A unique crossbreed of values and perspectives. I know I'm smart and quick-witted: serious about life, but with a couple one-liners in my back pocket to keep you smiling. Die-hard introvert, but not so broken as to be beyond putting a couple quarters in the machine and making a night to remember.

Lots of enthusiasm for day-to-day things, but try to avoid getting caught up in the issues of our time. I don't campaign for humanism, but am ardently devoted to reducing my environmental footprint (save a little of this magical planet for those who follow, please). I'm not especially religious, but I am a believer. I won't preach about anything that isn't compassion, forgiveness, and a suspension of personal judgements.

A once-upon-a-time hopeless romantic, who's been looking way too long. Maybe the internet has ruined the idea for the rest of us. Don't you ever get tired, and just want to come home? Well, I'm the doey-eyed gentle spirit, in the back of the coffee house, ready to share a smile, lend a shoulder to cry on, and push-off on that weekend adventure. I'm sitting there, sketching out all the little details so many are missing, and all I want to do is share.
What I’m doing with my life
For the past 5 years I've been living as part of an intentional community at an off-the-grid hot springs retreat center. Mo car, no cell phone, no microwave, no Chinese food on-demand; just acres and acres of national forest and a small collection of crazy neighbors.

It's like that episode of Portlandia everybody knows/talks about. Don't ask where your chicken comes from--just eat it, and be happy!

No, seriously: can you help me escape? I'm a highly functional human being with a well-developed resume and a lot to offer.
I’m really good at
Expressing myself.
Navigating without a map.
Seeing the details.
Telling time with no watch.
Keeping plants alive.
The first things people usually notice about me
"People" continue to say I have dreamy eyes and luscious lashes. Thanks, people!
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I usually skip this section when reading other peoples' profiles. When it comes to books, music, and tv: we all like what we like, right? And if someone doesn't like the same things as you: who cares? I, for one, welcome your variety and individual tastes.
Six things I could never do without
You wouldn't believe some of the things I go without...
however, I'm especially fond of my cat;
...and I really enjoy midnight snacks.
Coffee is a must if you hope to get anywhere with me before 1pm.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What life will be like in the real world when I get back there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Compared to a lot of you, I'm pretty vanilla--and that's okay! 🐦
You should message me if
Looking for wholesome women, only. If you need sex to jump-start a relationship, I'm just not interested. Looking for something more traditional.

Other things that might give us an edge would include:
Sustainability being a priority in your lifestyle.
You think a man without a full head of hair can still be sexy (or at least cute, in my case!)
You enjoy staying up late (or at least don't mind if your partner does).
Dialogue with someone prior to meeting is an enjoyable and desirable part of this OKC process.
You thinking material to be generally overrated.
Adventure is always calling...
A desire to proliferate happiness, at home and throughout the world!
The two of us
