My self-summary
I love my job, my hobbies, and my life in Portland. I plan on living here for the rest of my life. (Though I'm still highly interested in traveling abroad more.)

Here's my disclaimer (novel):

I want a man who wants to have ridiculous conversation, laugh to the brink of accidental urination, do romantic things (excluding bouquets of flowers...Why buy something that dies, gets gross, and then I have to feel guilty about trashing them? What a waste!), eat vegan food, snuggle up with kettle corn, a movie, and some cider/wine/etc.

I don't want someone who is passive aggressive, ignores a girl until she breaks up with him, doesn't value people for who they are, and doesn't put effort into the relationship. I've been treated that way for way too long and I've learned to cut someone loose the moment I get that vibe. I deserve more than that, a lot more.

I'm not interested in casual sex. I want all the relationshippy things without all the surface level hook up bullshit.

In other words, I'm looking for a relationship.

(I'm also totally committed to not reproducing. If you want a woman to someday have a family with, I'm not the right person for you. I'm not wavering, it's not a phase, and no, I won't "meet the right person and change my mind.")

I guess that's my summary.
What I’m doing with my life
Doing what makes me happy, not doing the things that make me unhappy.
I’m really good at
Peer pressure.
Sitting for long periods of time for tattoos.
Playing cello. I'm classically trained and miss it dearly. I prefer being in a band to being in an orchestra.
The first things people usually notice about me
Hopefully that I'm a nice person.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I only read scifi and fiction. I like anything Orson Scott Card (NO, I'm not seeing the Ender's Game movie), Chucky P, all the Harry Potters (and NO, not the movies), and Neil Gaiman.

Action, comedies, not scary movies. I'm a baby about scary movies because I'm afraid of the dark. I'm a pretty huge Star Wars fan and love extended universe stuff.

Lots of stuff on Netflix.

I mostly listen to ska, reggae, rocksteady, psychobilly, I love Jason Mraz, classical (the crazy stuff like Shostakovich) and I have a fondness for a majority of folk music/anything with banjo.

I like to eat just about anything I'm not allergic to. It might seem like I'm a picky eater, but the honest truth is that I probably like the things I'm turning down, I just don't want to go into anaphylactic shock.
The six things I could never do without
My Apple stuff.
Coffee & Cider.
Tattoo ink.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The present. I don't concern myself too much with the future. I also don't really believe in goals. It's not that I'm unmotivated or okay with mediocrity, but I've learned that I'm happiest when I deal with the now and not worrying about the future.

Oh, and daydreaming about my next tattoo (that never actually seems to end).
On a typical Friday night I am
There isn't really a "typical" Friday night for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like Desperate Housewives.

I have a thing for Ginger men. I don't know why and it came on suddenly. People think I'm weird.
You should message me if
The Good:
-You want to show me cool out doors things and take me on easy hikes and maybe have a picnic. I like going on walks.
-You appreciate good alcohol in a non-addictive way.
-You are ready to be in a relationship and treat a lady the way she deserves to be treated.
-You don't mind the ticking of clocks, I collect them. They are everywhere. And they all work. All the time.

The Bad:
-You don't have kids. If you have kids I am 100% not interested. Even if they don't live with you and are like 6000 miles away. They are absolutely a deal breaker. Sorry.
-You don't mind that I might not be able to keep up with your active lifestyle. My knees are demolished.
-You didn't lie about your height or diet. No point in lying, I WILL find out.
-You're my age or younger. I feel like I'm at a point in my life that exceeds where most 26 years olds are. I want to date someone who has their shit together emotionally, financially, and professionally. I'm not looking for someone with a career necessarily, but someone with a stable job that they feel passionately about.
