My self-summary
I spent my childhood flipping through the pages of my favorite superheroes and watching Star Wars well past the point where I could recite the movie. I played league baseball, and spent most of that time daydreaming in the outfield and silently praying a ball wouldn't get sent my way. That said, these days I can talk all things geeky/nerdy with you, but it can't be helped if my eyes glaze over and I go catatonic if you start talking about sports.

I imagine myself a pretty compassionate, easygoing person, and prefer to surround myself with the same. Sure, I have my flaws and foibles, but last I checked, it kinda comes with being human. I invested a great deal of my time in magic beans, and the ensuing stalk took me to a place that was not for the person I’d become on my journey. While my path through life has been far from a straight line, I have no complaints. It has helped keep me from becoming rigid in my thinking and worldviews. Live and let live, all that.

I'm hoping to find a kind-hearted, funny gal I can share laughs, adventures, and stories with. Maybe even someone to build a future with if I'm lucky. All that said, I'm happy as is. To be frank it has taken a lot of work to get there. My partner will know how to be an emotional support when it's important, and let herself be supported when she'd in need. After all, who else should be your strongest emotional support?

Just to throw out a big fat disclaimer, my car recently flopped on me and I opted to try out Blue Indy. While I've found it particularly satisfying so far, it can obviously complicate the logistics of dating. I thought this might be an important factor in deciding whether or not you would want to meet me, and there isn't a "have car" box I can check anywhere.
What I’m doing with my life
Recalibrating my life's vision to fit the reality of who and where I am.

I'm working for a nonprofit involved in the mental health industry as a policy/research analyst, which has been pretty rewarding thus far. That, a decent regimen of exercise, and friend time keep me pretty happy.

I have hobbies and stuff. They're cool too.
I’m really good at
Humor. Wry, dark, self deprecating, et al. Helping people move. Physically rigorous activities. Seeing multiple sides/angles on an issue. Refilling the toilet paper dispenser. Being a caring and attentive friend/boyfriend/etc.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: There are a lot of interesting memoirs out there. I'm a big fan of fantasy/sci fi work; it's a different kind of writing. When reading most stories, the reader has a certain understanding of the world the book takes place in, but with fantasy/sci-fi, the author has to take you on that journey. Between that and good character development... love it.

Movies: I grew up on Star Wars and comic books, so you can imagine. As with books, anything with good character development. The most recent Netflix movie that stuck out was Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. Absolutely loved it. I enjoy giving indie films a try, and really dig cheesy B-horror movies.

Shows: Let's go to the Murat. I know, not the kind of shows you were thinking of. Kimmy Schmidt is pretty badass. I'm enjoying the Netflix Marvel series'. They're really telling stories rather than creating formulaic sitcoms. Jessica Jones is my fav so far.

Music: I tend to stick to the various forms of rock.

Food: I don't need a list here. Yes. All of it. Birds of a feather digest together.
The six things I could never do without
Imagination and humor.
On a typical Friday night I am
Typical.

Game night or conversing with friends, reading or writing, or braindead.
You should message me if
You have a horrid, sordid, degrading pick up line you'd like to try. What? It's 2016. Feminism. Women's lib. You have every right to be just as terrible as men, go wild.

Oh yeah, if you managed to see something interesting in the above drivel, that might be a good reason to message me too. Doesn't mean we're gonna go steady or I'm gonna try to get in your pants. Just means we might have a drink and a chat, have some fun.
