My intention here is to attract those who are also positive (or otherwise very familiar and comfortable with HSV-2) and save the time of those who aren't. So, if you have no experience with the virus or you simply don't know where you stand on the matter, please don't write me. Unless maybe if it's to give me some words of encouragement or advice or something.
If, however, you are also positive, AND you think we could have romantic chemistry (see “message me if”), I'd love to hear from you. I promise that regardless of where our interaction goes, I will not share your identity/status if that's important to you. I'm just seeking some ease and transparency (like I always have) as I figure out how to go forward with my love life from now on.
Also, there's a little poem in my pictures that has reminded many times over to be myself, openly, freely, and without shame - which has been my truest route to kindred spirits.
Ok! Wanted to get that in first, so you didn't spend time falling in love with the rest of my profile to no avail, hehe. Now that that's taken care of *phew* here's me:
I'm a happy dreadlocked hippy chick just trying to be zen :) I'm confident, open-minded, open-hearted, honest, ever-curious, and pretty self-aware. I love the sun, the night, the road, philosophy, naps, movement, coffee shops, animals, movies, kisses, vodka-pineapples, travel, peace, smiles.
I'm polyamorous and partial toward triads, but for now I'd be happy to bond with one other kindred spirit.
I'm also a Burner. Also switch. (If any of these terms are confusing to you, feel free to ask me about em).
I'm an eternal optimist.
Massage therapy is my calling and my career. I commute between Mountain View and Palo Alto regularly.
Personally, my optimism/compassion maybe. I tend to seek out the light in any given event or person or whatever you got. Not that I'm stubbornly positive-thinking (shit happens, man), just that I will always attempt empathy first and foremost. And I'm usually smiling.
I LOVE movies/TV shows. Too many to make a list that would represent me well. Light animations, heavy dramas, pop action flix, querky/dark comedies, sappy romcoms.. Let's just go with everything except horror, I don't much like feeling scared, haha.
Music is awesome. I'm not super savvy, but I like at least a few songs from every genre. As mentioned, I've been diggin EDM these days - such a burner :P
Food is delicious. I really can't think of a type that I sweepingly dislike. I lived in Austin for a couple years, and I miss that Texas BBQ sometimes. Thai and Indian have been favorites of mine lately.. Basically, I'll try anything once. And probably like it.
Open lines of communication
My car (for trips, my bike for daily transport)
Non-judgment, non-attachment, non-resistance.
The four agreements.
Home with friends/movies/wine/snacks. or...
On a drive/walk, talking to someone interesting. or...
Doing something else, heh.
Willing to consider lifestyles/values different from your own
If you think I have no business making such a list, I respect your opinion, but please don't use it to try and hurt my feelings. Regardless, I want you to know that you are amazing just the way you are! I simply know myself well enough now and have enough experience with the online thing, that I honestly just want to save everyone some time and energy.
Oh and if you've messaged me in the past, and I haven't responded (been off Cupid for a long time), you might write again. I'm sorta starting from scratch now, so it's likely that I won't act on the messages I've received up to this point (6/7).
