I don't really identify as straight, though I have no romantic interest in men. I prefer to think of myself as queer or pansexual in theory at least. I prefer women who have some connection with a queer identity, whether bisexual, pansexual, or the many in betweens.
I play guitar and sing, do karaoke with friends, am active in the local bdsm scene, am crafty/handy/creative/artistic, would like to get more involved in volunteering, gardening, and many other things on my ever growing to-do list.
I would love some companionship while crossing some of those things off.
From childhood's hour I have not been As others were; I have not seen As others saw; I could not bring My passions from a common spring. From the same source I have not taken My sorrow; I could not awaken My heart to joy at the same tone; And all I loved, I loved alone. Then—in my childhood, in the dawn Of a most stormy life—was drawn From every depth of good and ill The mystery which binds me still: From the torrent or the fountain, From the red cliff or the mountain, From the sun that round me rolled In its autumn tint of gold, From the lightning in the sky As it passed my flying by, From the thunder and the storm, And the cloud that took the form (When the rest of Heaven was blue) of a demon in my view.
-Edgar Allen Poe
As far as books are concerned, I generally enjoy non- fiction books about the social sciences. Fiction books I have enjoyed are 1984, breakfast of champions, slaughterhouse 5, middlesex, a blind man can see how much I love you, come to me - the last two by Amy bloom... Catcher in the rye, the perks of being a wallflower, and I love what I have read of rilke's letters to a young poet.
Movies- I like all kinds, especially artsy movies. The list would be arbitrary however in relationto what I can think of off the top of my head...
Music - I love folk, bluegrass, blues, rock, and well pretty much something of every genre. My favorites are Ani Difranco, Bright Eyes/Conor Obherst, Indigo Girls, Amos Lee, Dar Williams, Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac, Chicago... the list could seriously go on and on.
Food - cheese and rice are probably my favorites. i like a bit of everything... from traditional home-style food to exotic foreign food. i love curry and sushi, what indian food i've tried, and love to try rice dishes from every culture I can.
You are willing to treat me as well as I deserve, as I will do the same for you.
