My self-summary
Hi there...I won't say cliche stuff like "living it to the fullest" and "must like animals". And I'll never, ever desecrate an inspiring vista by mugging some yoga pose for the camera.

The world of people is big and intriguing. Traditional relationships never worked, enclosing, eventually crushing my life force. Selective, ethical non-monogamy is new to me.

I wake up with a smile. I'm clever, light-hearted with a dash of irreverence, and you'll giggle. I say hi to other runners when pounding the pavement and they look at me strangely. I harass the cats and they come back for more, purring. Underneath I’m one to challenge my beliefs, refresh my assumptions and create new challenges. My routine isn't at all based on the 40-hour kind. I'm nomadic, curious, frequently come-and-go from home to absorb something, somewhere, new.

I'll notice your scarf, and remember the little thing you mentioned last week. I can find good words when times are tough. I'm drawn to connections and meaning. Time resolves the eventual direction but I'll root for your well-being from day one. ISFJ...and pretty true to form. Secondary type: ESPN ;-).

Not an A-lister: I won't know if you 'liked' me. But if you do, it will still make me smile.

Giving just the right change to a cashier in order to minimize the amount of coins I receive in return.

Waking up at a an ungodly hour to see the cat's face 2 inches away.

Breaking a sweat, in some way or another, followed by a good beer isn't just possible, but sounds great to you.
