Six things I could never do without
I was reading someone's profile that noted that it assumes the existence of a lot of sociopaths for all of us to put down our friends and family. And I personally find answers like "oxygen" and "water" eyeroll inducing. So aside from the necessities and the givens (and not in order):

1. cheese 2. garlic 3. coffee 4. books/my nook 5. ladyblogging and 6. comfortable bras
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Lebanon, The Baha'is, TV shows, my friends and family, feminism, LGBT issues, BLM, and social justice more generally, how many students there are at hogwarts, the works of Lucy Maud Montgomery, theoretical housecleaning
On a typical Friday night I am
Let's be real, it's this.

I am also very into board games. If you want to Smash-up or boss some monsters or qill some quarriors in a quay I may be your lady.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love cheesy holiday themed rom coms. Like Mindy Kaling, I have not yet tired of watching attractive people fall in love.

This is me, winking at you.
You should message me if
You're not looking for a cool girl with no emotional needs. I have never in my life been chill.

If you're kind to people and animals and passionate about something, I'll definitely consider it. I am not looking for anything very casual, I pretty much have that covered. I am looking for love. I am not entirely sure how I want that love to look, and I'm open to suggestion, but if you know at the outset that you can't or don't want that, it's probably best if we just don't.
The two of us
