Overarching Goals: to live in a simpler/more earth-friendly/more peacemaking way; to savor life while it is given to me. To go deeper and live broader.
Short-Term Objectives: to seek out/make opportunities to sing and dance; to become a better friend; to connect more deeply with the people I meet.
*Some degree of solitude
*Food, shelter, water
*Independence--being recognized as an autonomous adult
*Access to kitties!
*Ways to express myself--music, song, dance, writing...
Okay, I admit that depression has been and is a part of my life--sometimes it settles down in the middle of the room, a fuzzy gray presence that sheds its fur everywhere, starts eating my cheese curls and plays music I don't like. Learning to navigate around it is an ongoing process for me.
I find it interesting that in some situations in my life, it's higher-stakes to reveal my struggles with depression, while in others it would be my bisexuality; in others, being a fanfiction author; still others, not identifying as explicitly Christian. To you, OkCupid, I unveil all of the above!
*You are either in Philadelphia or willing to come into town occasionally (I'm car-free and busy enough that I rarely cross the city limits).
*You've set up your OKCupid profile thoroughly enough that I, in turn, can visit it and get to know you better.
*You pay attention to the OKCupid friend/enemy percentages (I'm unlikely to respond to messages from folks whose friend percentage is under ~70% or enemy percentage is over ~30%).
*Both seriousness and play are important parts of your life.
*You aren't put off by lack of dating experience in your partner.
*Conversation is as much a part of your idea of a good time as canoodling.
