Recently, I've become particularly interested in appreciating things outside my comfort zone and empathising with people who are substantially different than me.
Thou art god and I am god and all that groks is god.
Some part of me has an illusion that I will fit in "reunion tours" with my former a cappella troupe and bellydance troupe, or getting back on the Faire circuit and jumping horses. And in the no time left after that I want to learn contortion and to sail a tall ship.
Fair disclosure: I am not looking for a primary relationship. I am mostly looking for friends but am open to super-casual, infrequent dating. There are three people I have slept with before whom I would sleep with again.
Food: I've got my veggie and meat CSAs set up in New York, but still need to find foodie bars and a favoured specialty shop.
Former Chicago answer: I get the majority of my food from Farmer Tom's, Cedar Valley Sustainable, and Provenance. Honorable mention: Jam, Rootstock, Owen&Engine, Longman&Eagle, Telegraph, The Bristol, the Barrelhouse Flat, and oyster happy hour at Shaw's.
That's the only thing.
Okay, I'm going to add another one that I don't usually get into in real life, but as this is a dating site, it is relevant. I am chromosonally female and identify as mostly male. I have decided to live with the body I was dealt (which makes me feel like a lifestyle drag queen, but that's kind of fun) and just get over my 'trans-agnst.' For the most part, I present male professionally and female socially. I answer to both pronouns interchangeably. But if you ever tell me I do not present adequately to either bianary role, we are done.
I'd love people who are not trying to have sex with me to dance with, cook with, jog with, knit with, eat with, and torment the cat with.
I take very few sexual partners. The ones I do take are usually male-presenting individuals. You have better odds if:
* You are slim and pretty with angular features, a full compliment of hair on top of your head and minimal-to-none on your body. See: bltoaster, Harrelll, the Warwick University Rowing Team Calendar
* You are smart, well-socialized, and not shy. Professional performers usually fit this bill.
*You have a disciplined, purposeful vocabulary of movement. Physical actors, circus performers, ballerinos. Good news: as a well-fleshed bellydancer, I eat about three times as much as all your ballerina ex girlfriends, so dinner with me is a lot more fun.
* Bonus points if you sing collegiate a capella. I also <3
