My self-summary
I'm an outspoken, Greek yogurt loving, queer lady with a tendency to speak in hashtags. I consider myself an extrovert who is very curious about the world. You can hold my attention with fun facts, acts of kindness, etymology, bad jokes, recipes, and Joss Whedon quotations.

If you're into labels: ENFP (Myers Briggs), 3w4 (Enneagram), Ravenclaw.
What I’m doing with my life
Is this where I talk about my job? I work in media. I love to cook and have thought about starting my own Youtube channel. I enjoy practicing Spanish and nerding out over words.
I’m really good at
Cooking. Figuring out solutions to problems. Speaking my mind. Reading social cues. Starting a dance party.

Did I mention laughing? Kissing.
The first things people usually notice about me
My hair, my lips... My general outspokenness and ease in first date situations. My Totoro tattoo.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Food: Greek and Middle Eastern. I love food in the my-eyes-light-up-when-I-see-a-new-recipe-way.

Movies: I went to film school. I am somehow not a movie snob, but I can articulate what I love and hate about films. I'm attached to the medium, not its genres.

Shows: Mindy. Shonda. Comics. Issa.

Music: Can I dance to it? Can I write to it? Is it being performed in front of me? Does my niece like to sing it? I'll listen.

Books: I was born to a woman who turned the page of a book the way some people caress the face of a newborn. Currently reading: Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing.
Six things I could never do without
Olive oil.
Good conversations.
My family.
Running water.
A balance of hard work, recognition, and critical feedback.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I'm going to cook. My niece. My next side project. How to be more kind. Grammar/words/nuance. Critical race theory. Queer culture. Philadelphia.
On a typical Friday night I am
Collapsing into a work week induced coma with Star Trek NG playing softly in the background...

Or HH with my colleagues. Or a wedding.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a quick judge of character and don't give third chances.
You should message me if
you're not closeted...

You know how to clean a plate.

You know how to hang with all different kinds of folks.

You are sex-positive.

You are a kind, communicative person.

You used to live in Philadelphia.

You smell good.

You are not new: to the city, to being out, to being an adult.

I generally (and genuinely) love women who can make decisions, are extremely independent, have life long friends, and can speak about their past with kindness and insight.

**Not interested in the following: jungle fever fetishes, rape fantasies, threesomes with your boyfriend, outings in loud bars, #AllLivesMatter debates, hotep politicking, picky eaters *due to taste, not illness,* basic grumpy or negative people. I'm here to have fun and spread love.

Last note: whether it's with a lover, a partner, a friend, etc, I am uninterested in sub/dom roles (as a relationship characteristic, not necessarily a sexual one). I want to be around my equal, complimentary person. I'm not going to order you around and I don't want to be ordered around.
The two of us
