My self-summary
Independent, intelligent, a leader, mover and shaker. Quite weird. Rather hilarious. Tough exterior with a soft heart. Loyal to the end. Honest and realistic. Nature lover, history buff, antiquer, thrifter. Interested in almost anything, willing to try almost anything.

Edit 2017: Do men who are actually looking for a relationship exist on this site?
What I’m doing with my life
I work in government as a civil service employee. That's all you get to know :)
I’m really good at
Laughing, coming up with treasures in a thrift store full of junk, enjoying the little things, self-reflection, and being creative/ finding creative pathways.
The first things people usually notice about me
It would have to be my eyes and hair. And that I talk a lot and have a fairly loud voice, and the big personality that matches the voice. Like really big personality. Cannot stress enough about the personality being big. If you like shy quiet girls, or are shy and quiet yourself and like it that way, find another girl.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I am an avid reader. I have authors I fall back on time and time again, like F. Scott Fitzgerald, Truman Capote, Sherman Alexie; but am always looking for new novels to read. I have a Kindle and it's great- another place to find books for free and great for super bulky tomes and magazines. With it when I travel I always have something to read. I also read lots of cookbooks and vintage women's manuals for inspiration. I really enjoy novels that were scandals in their day (Peyton Place, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall) and really do like Victorian novels, especially by female authors. I've also been reading more sci-fi and fantasy. Give me some off beat, unknown suggestions!

I haven't seen many recent movies. I'm a big bad movie, old movie, and B movie fan, and I own a lot of DVDs of cult classics and old movie collections. I'm always a fan of horror, suspense and quasi-horror, plus, anything with Bruce Campbell in it. I also like foreign movies and Bollywood. I have really been into Netflix and Amazon Prime lately. Hello, BBC costume dramas!

I totally own a TV now, but no cable service, thanks to Amazon Fire TV. I recently got HBONow and Starz and watch a myriad of shows available on Netflix, Hulu Plus and Amazon Prime. Right now I am cycling through the Gilmore Girls, Murder She Wrote, ST:TNG and just started some more BBC dramas- Midsomer Murders anyone?

I listen to literally everything. I own a record player and have what I consider to be a decent record collection, and am always out on the town looking for additions. I also have Pandora, Amazon Prime Music, and Google Play Music subscriptions, and listen to a lot of stations and playlists through them. Some artists I love: Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Queens of the Stone Age and anything Joshua Homme does, The Beach Boys, Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris,Johnny Cash, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Dave Brubeck.

As for food- I will try anything. I love to cook- give me recipes! I'm a pretty good cook too. I really am a fan of most types of cuisine, and will go out of my way to try new things. Although I don't like olives. I just don't!
Six things I could never do without
A book, a bed, an imagination, music, conversation, dreams.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Important topics to myself, like, working with the theatre companies I do stuff with and what I need to do, what's the next step for a design, etc. Or, for example, how to inspire people to get rid of their cars and start using public transit. I don't have a car myself! I've also been very interested in urban homesteading for a while now, so I've been thinking about things like cheese and beermaking, keeping bees and chickens, and of course, gardening.
On a typical Friday night I am
I might be enjoying a cozy night in, or maybe a fun night out. Or just taking a walk down to the beach and enjoying this beautiful place.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I talk to myself. It helps me think. I know it sounds weird, but it really does. I have so many thoughts running around in my mind at all times, so speaking the words helps me to focus on them.
You should message me if
If you're looking for someone to chat with maybe, or have fun with, or perhaps just a carefree date. Mature men need only apply. I also stick hard to my age limits on here - if you're under 26 or over 46, you're a bit too young or old for me, sorry!
The two of us
