I would best be described as an extroverted introvert with extremely varied interests and an insatiable curiosity for the intricacies of life.
Things I'd like to do with another person*:
Cards Against Humanity tournament
Movie marathon (w/ cuddles AND popcorn)
Dance my ass off at a music festival
Photo scavenger hunt
*disclaimer: I'm not necessarily good at any of the activities which might involve skill.
Why am I single?
Striking the balance between intellectual stimulation, shared interests/values, and sexual attraction is hard!
I want something meaningful, but things will have to progress slowly relationship-wise.
Sometimes it seems impossible finding someone in the middle of this "fuck 'n' chuck vs. marriage tomorrow" spectrum ...
History and anthro-nerd. Right now, I kind of have a foot in two worlds. I work as a project management professional with a number of non-profit entities. I'm also in beauty school getting my entrepreneur on!
The only other thing I'm doing with my life (definitely the most important thing I'm doing with my life) is raising my daughter.
Is that the first thing that most people notice about me? Probably.
But I've also gotten ...
"I noticed your smile/eyes/pretty face/laughter."
Do you know how some people on here have obnoxiously long music lists? well i could totally bust out an obnoxious book list.
honestly? i'm a grade-A BOOK NERD.
I will read anything: romance, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, about vampires/werewolves/fairies (yes Charlaine Harris of TrueBlood fame, and even that sad sad Twilight series), some manga (I prefer to just watch the anime series though), and most popular fiction.
my favorite authors are:
Tanarive Due, J.K. Rowling, Karen Marie Moning, George R.R. Martin, Jasper Fforde, Jean M. Auel, Edgar Allan Poe
Despicable Me, Toy Story 3, Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny, Meet the Fockers, The Natural Born Killers, Kill Bill Volume all of them, Johnny Depp being creepy/sexy, the original Drunken Master with Jackie Chan (really anything with Jackie Chan), The One, Rayearth, The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, All of the Star Trek movies (the last one was banging! mostly because of Spock's hot ass, though) Madagascar 2, Stranger Than Fiction, Borat , Sixth Sense ( M. Night Shyamalan completely fucked up The Last Airbender), The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, A Mule for Sister Sarah, Fifth Element, BOONDOCK SAINTS (the second one wasn't as good as the first ... i think it was the absence of Smecker AND Rocko) ...
I rarely get to see movies (let's take a minute to cry about this). It will be more helpful for me to list all of the movies I'd LIKE to see:
Pulp Fiction (and various other Tarantino movies)
Deep foreign films with subtitles and awkward sex scenes
Something about sunshine and a spotless mind
I saw the Dark Knight but I need to see it again
Tv: shameless (watching the UK version now and will get to the American version soon), the last airbender, game of thrones, trueblood, girls (I'm ashamed to admit), misfits, lost girl, the neighbors, I want to see The Wire
i'm one of those people you see when you're driving who is dancing and singing with the music cranked all the way up.
When I want to dance I listen to: go-go, crunk, reggaeton, salsa, samba, rap, Diplo and dubstep, and pop.
When I'm driving, I like to listen to music I can sing along to: Prince, Jilly from Philly, Adele, Coldplay, Mumford, Florence and the Machine, Bublé ...
Thanks to Guitar Hero/Rock Band and my big brother I'm starting to get into Rock music and Metal ... still trying to figure out how to dance to this shit though ...
I LOVE QUEEN!!!
When I want to hear music ABOUT something I like neo-soul and hip hopCommon, Jill Scott, Kanye West, John Legend, Busta RhymesMos Def, Talib Kweli,
Then, of course, there are the classics: Prince, Parliment Funk, Earth,Wind, and Fire, Smokey Robinson, the Temptations, Chaka Khan and Rufus, Rick James
other folks: Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, Rare Essence, the Backyard Band, Corinne Bailey Rae, Missy Elliot (whatever happened to this chick?), Timbaland, LL Cool J.......
foods: Seafood!! (I'm a Maryland girl). I'm a good cook. However, I like to cook FOR people. Preferably for people who wash dishes.
what im going to be when i grow up
what i am gonna read next
how the last book i read could have been better
How to start a self sustaining commune/alternative family without getting categorized as a cult by the US government and assassinated.
2.)When I see folks spell things the "British" way (ie. Favourite, realise, colour), instead of thinking, "gee, it must suck that y'all are still under the thumb of British colonialism." I think, "gee, it must suck to always have to type that extra letter in 'humor'.
3.) I only come onto this app when I know I can have the appropriate sense of humor needed to read through some of these messages ...
