I really enjoy deep intellectual conversations, especially with self-aware, secure, straightforward people, but who know how to cut through the seriousness with a joke or snide comment at just the right moment ;)
ESTJ / ENFJ for those interested.
I value open mindedness and humility a great deal and love learning about perspectives and beliefs different than mine.
I also enjoy finding humor in and poking fun at all of them, including my own. I don't take myself too seriously and have a hard time breaking boundaries with those who are easily offended.
I'm in an open relationship. Looking to meet awesome people to share fun times with, platonic or romantic. Happy to chat more about this; just ask.
Some current / interested in hobbies: soap making, comedy / improv, magic, triathlons, obstacle races, massage.
Location note: I split my time between SF & Concord.
Napping. Seriously, I've perfected the art.
Deflecting arguments of why my favorite shoes are called five fingers when really, they're on the toes. Hopefully I'm running with the dog so I just call him back and play the cuteness card. Win.
Listening. That's right, baby girl, I'm all ears.
Mario Kart 64.
But when I want to be seen:
I've been told I have nice eyes. That or the fact that I'm always wearing sandals.

A good challenge (I'm game if you're game).
Chipotle 13.5 times per year. No more, no less.
With my remaining, very limited, brainpower:
- How I can mentor someone in the most impactful way.
- What the world would be like if people were more compassionate. I'm a big believer in the power of habit, 1% change over time, and bottom up grassroots movements - the "if everyone turned off a light.." idea.
On my not so daring nights, I can be found:
Hosting potluck game nights - friendly competition in charades, board games, cornhole, ping pong, sports, croquet, you name it!
Or out in nature / on a weekend camping / backpacking trip - I really appreciate the simple things.
You think we'd be great adventure / activity buddies. You have a hobby you'd like to share or start.
You want to share a Chipotle burrito. Haha just kidding I want my own.
