I can be a bit opinionated and have little, if any, problem expressing that opinion regardless of whether that upsets people or not. I am an atheist, that means I don't believe there is a god, it does not mean I hate god or that I worship the devil or dance around trees (well not for religious reasons any way)
Like many people I describe myself self with lots of words that end with "ist' but I don't like "isms" when they become someone's identity. I'm much more than one word or hopefully a collection of words could convey. I'm looking for someone similar whose identity isn't tied to "isms" or being an "ist.'
That said words are the easiest way to describe ourselves. I'm far left leaning politically, I'd be a socialist but I enjoy the decadence that only a capitalist society can provide. I'm, for the most part, anti authoritarian but I don't run around yelling "ANARCHY" at the top of my lungs. I love animals but I still eat meat, I could never kill my own food and if I had to hunt animals to eat I would be a vegetarian.
I believe that no good deed goes unpunished but that doesn't stop me from trying to perform them.
I've also gotten back into running after 5 years away from it, thanks to a partially torn Achilles tendon.

learning something new
my computer to fact check the new things I learn
a good cast iron skillet
something to read
When I make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich I use a different knife for each.
The first thing I look at on a woman's profile is what books, music and movies she likes.
If your answer here something in the vein of "it's private' then you're either boring or can't read and either way I'm not interested. This section is supposed to be a fun little ice breaker not some intimate disclosure about that one night you had in Thailand twenty years ago.
