I am twenty eight years old, currently living life and loving it. I'm an interesting broad, truthfully - I have incredibly strange, geeky hobbies that can range from a slight obsession with Star Trek, to a renewed fondness for comic and anime conventions as of late. I like going to renaissance festivals, and art shows. I love museums, and learning interesting new information about the most random of things. The History Channel is one of my favorite things in the world. I have a passion for French culture and French things, and I have a love affair with coffee that borderlines on the obscene.
I am an optimist. In regards to pessimism and realism, I feel that attempting to see things in a realistic way will only lead to overthinking, and overanalyzing. If you honestly look at your life and think to yourself it can always get better, it will. I believe in appreciating what you have, the talents you maintain, the friendships and family relationships and lovers you gain in life - it's better to appreciate than to look around and wait for something more, or something better to fall into your lap. I believe that people are inherently good, and I trust people all too easily.
I've realized over the past several years that while I love women primarily - and god do I love everything about them, their smiles, their eyes, their bodies, every single thing they do - I'm not as gay as I once thought I was. I'm attracted to men, women, and everything in between, truthfully, but the men on here tend to be somewhat too pushy for my tastes. It may sound cliche, but it's not what's between your legs that's most important - it's honestly, truthfully, who you are and how you present yourself. If you're smart and have a sense of humor, you'll win my heart in a second. I'm no longer looking for a purely sexual partner - friends with benefits is one thing, but unless you're interested in me personally I don't think that's going to work out well.
I also am realizing that I am largely polyamorous. Not so much in the sense that I am not comfortable with only one partner, but moreso in that I have the capacity and ability to love more than one person at a time. If this is a deal breaker I entirely understand. :)
Dealbreaker possibility number 3: I am under the trans-umbrella. I identify as genderfluid and/or genderqueer depending on the circumstances. I am ultimately neither sex, yet I'm both in one body. This means that I have masculine and feminine energy in one state. I channel it in different ways. It's an odd thing, and an odd little bit to move forward through, but you can ask me any questions you'd like.
I also have a tendency to spend some lovely time with people I care about most. I love being able to play board games or go to movies and hang out with others. I have my tribes that I love and hang out with.
I am a mental health advocate and am looking forward to more being able to help those who suffer from a lot of the same issues I have. :)
I'm also rather quiet in person, but if I get comfortable in a situation, I'm incredibly quick to resort to sarcasm and wit. I like to come off stronger than I really am. I love laughing and smiling. Few things make you feel better, right?
Movies: I love the new Star Trek reboots, Pacific Rim - anything that's funny, interesting, science-fiction and actiony tends to woo me over. I also really like quirky, romantic, sweet movies that leave me feeling refreshed. I love Moulin Rouge, Little Miss Sunshine, RENT, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and I admit to being a bit of a nerd with the Harry Potter and now the Hunger Games movies.
Music: I really will listen to almost anything. I have a weakness for older music - anywhere from the forties to the eighties, and I love rock n'roll. Journey, Queen, and AC/DC are some of my favorites that I will literally sit and listen to for hours. I also get in moods for Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. I also really love classical and instrumental songs, I regularly will listen to soundtracks to help me write or draw. Anything that inspires me is good.
Food: I love Italian food and sushi. Those are probably my top two, but I also have a weakness for French food and good old American cooking. I really wasn't kidding when I said I have a love affair with coffee, because some of my favorite dinners are made even better with a Starbucks run after.
I think about people a lot too. People I know, people I care about. Making sure they're alright. I love sitting at a cafe somewhere and watching people go by, wondering what kind of person they are. It always amazes me -- rarely human interaction happens just from an offhand hello or awkward handshake. It's always about conversation.
Also, I'm a little picky about spelling and proper grammar. Some things are okay. Other things are not. I realize that sounds ridiculous, but simply put - it makes you sound a lot more intelligent, which is incredibly sexy to me. It does not necessarily mean that I will refuse to respond, but keep it in mind. Also, if you're a couple looking for a third -- I might be okay with it, I might not. But I've been down that road before and it usually doesn't work out, so we'll have to talk about it a lot before anything actually happens. ;)
I am very endeared to puns and silliness. The more charm you lay on me, the better. :P
