My self-summary
I smile a lot, usually a great big smile that makes my eyes squint. I like to express myself, and am looking for new creative outlets to do so. I believe in deep communication, even if this means talking about uncomfortable topics. I love hearing different points of view and expanding my understanding of various cultures. I believe strongly in social/environmental change. I'm empathetic, intuitive, and contemplative.

I love to dance, read, write, explore, travel, hike, bike, camp, practice yoga, meditate, sing, engage in meaningful conversations, watch documentaries, play games, cultivate community, spend time with friends and family. Music is extremely important to me and I like going to hear live music. I'm non-materialistic, enjoy the outdoors, playful, genuine, sensual, and curious. I love to eat - which includes cooking and finding great new restaurants.

I like outlandish ideas, and I hold unconventional beliefs. I'm attracted to people who cross societal boundaries, but know and respect their own. I'm not interested in gossip or the latest celebrity news. I start lots of projects, but don't always finish. Have grand schemes that fall through because I'm overwhelmed by all the options (but I'm workin on it!!) Although I am an eternal optimist and tend to believe in every being's capacity for healing and transformation, I do have a brooding side that sometimes has to be put in check!

I am authentic, feisty, and alive
What I’m doing with my life

My self-awareness
On a typical Friday night I am
anywhere you can imagine. I enjoy exploring new environments and do so quite frequently. I flock to places with character, warmth, festivity, spunk (anywhere with live music). Anywhere that has a great fireplace! Under the stars, without a tent.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I had an organ removed when I was 7. Can you guess which one?
You should message me if like having intimate, controversial, invigorating,
intoxicating, challenging conversations or exchanges, not
necessarily verbal. don't hold back on the dance floor! have the capacity to really be yourself. not me, and
certainly not who you think I want you to be. Possess depth,
wisdom, and a great flair for life in all of its forms. Be capable
of great intimacy and closeness without losing your identity in
mine or pressuring me to become who you are. can make me smile, because every time i see or think of you I'm reminded of what a beautiful person you are. I'm looking for someone who is: emotionally intelligent, creative, compassionate, warm, open-minded, honest, sincere, values their family and friends (and most importantly themselves), self-reflective, intense yet lighthearted, and not afraid of taking risks.

I would like to meet a man who refuses to settle in any area of his life and defines his success based on his own values, not what society tells him to value. I respect people who see the beauty in every situation, while simultaneously being able to detect pain and feel empathetic. I like to laugh and have fun, so please possess spunk. Let's play!

Confidence, not arrogance, is incredibly sexy to me. Challenge me:physically, spiritually, emotionally, and intellectually - and I
will do the same. Have the courage to call me out on things and the strength to talk about delicate issues. Possess Integrity. Be quirky, imaginative, playful, and sensual. I'm attracted to people who are aware: of their surroundings, of what is going on in our world, and of how their actions and words affect others. Show me different sides of myself that even I didn't know existed. If you believe that Love=freedom, not ownership then we might just have a lot in common.
The two of us
