My friendships are very important to me, as is my family. I've never been married and have no children. And now I'm looking for a partner. If you're using the site seriously and honestly, please keep reading.
My perfect match is kind. He is a magnet for strangers and enjoys meeting new people. He likes music over television and isn't scared to be exactly who he wants to be. He is not against us doing our own things away from each other, but he definitely has his "own thing." And being that I am a tall woman, he is tall.
--listening (I often hear, "I don't know why I'm telling you this, but..."),
--making fun of myself,
--being 5 places at once and making it a priority to keep in touch with all of those who have touched my life,
--direct communication (I really don't like subtle hints. I miss them every time.),
--and making sure that there is F...U...N...in every single day.
That I'm always happy
My potty mouth
My "weirdness". (I brought Portland with me.)
That I'm looking at them, in the eye, and smiling.
Music is always playing. Some of my favorites: Kaneholler, Rhye, Caribou, James Blake, Bjork, Portishead, Beastie Boys, Stan Getz, Buena Vista Social Club, Prince, Radiohead, Otis Redding, and Nossa Alma Canta to name a few. My newest craze is deep funk (see The Fun Company).
My two favorite songs of all time: "Caramel" by Suzanne Vega and "I'll Be Your Lover, Too" by Van Morrison.
I'll never turn down a Yacht Rock block or a sultry Bossa Nova, just try me.
My two favorite movies of all time are Joe vs. the Volcano and LA Story. Throw some Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and Princess Bride into the mix and you've got yourself a date night!
Currently reading Gulp by Mary Roach. italo calving's Cosmicomics is always on my bedside table. I heard Liev Screiber's narration on Radiolab and instantly fell in love.
2. My family
4. Music (Anything, but new country)
5. Connecting with strangers and sharing our stories
my home. As soon as one project is finished, another appears from nowhere!, and
Every week is different. Could be a show, art gallery, dancing, late night run, or staying in.
