My self-summary
Disclaimer: //// I'm in an open relationship with stuporman . He's awesome, I'm crazy about him, and we're disgustingly schmoopy in public. You've probably seen us. Sorry. ////

That said, I'm looking for kindred spirits, sex and romance not necessary. I'd love accomplices for happy hour, cooking, outdoor adventures, and witty, sometimes profound conversation.

I like people, gin, berries, and going out in the summer, and books, whiskey, root vegetables, and staying in in the winter. I don't mind solitude, but people don't suck, either. I like kids, but think kittens are cuter than babies (and pretty much everything else). I like places and people I can walk to. I'm an INFP and I'm poly.
What I’m doing with my life
My weekdays involve a lot of nurturing, patience, responsibility, and silly songs. My weekends tend more towards hedonism, art, and sucking that tasty marrow out of life.

I do a lot of yoga, pilates, and meditation to balance those two.

I have a degree in Psychology. I find humans endlessly fascinating, disgusting, and loveable. Women's health is SO COOL. I love art and science and the overlap between them.

I've tried my hand at painting, drawing, photography, film, theater, dance (blues, lindy, modern, ballet, african), writing (poetry, prose, and nonfiction), and just started learning the ukulele. Also I'm writing a novel.

I’m really good at
Understanding people who aren't me, the intrapersonal, raising children, a variety of arts, and informing my worldview with statistics. The big picture, grey areas, and subtlety. My parasympathetic nervous system kicks ass.
The first things people usually notice about me
Big eyes and long legs.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I look for wit and depth. I love literature and art. I have a deep and abiding love for young adult literature, but I also bury myself in some academic texts from time to time.

I like jazz and blues.

I like food that's real and tasty.

Here are a few specifics from recent weeks: Kitchen Confidential (I'd never looked at Fear and Loathing as a grocery list before, but I guess that takes a chef's eye), Mating in Captivity, Gilmore Girls, Jeanette Winterson, Sherlock, oysters, Bulleit Rye.
The six things I could never do without
Luxuries I spend money on even when I'm broke:
local food
yoga/ dance
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Individuation and evolution. Specifically the intersection of what we evolved to do, what we've been acculturated to do, and what we choose to do.

It recently occurred to me that my ideal man is probably 70% Giles and 30% Spike, and my ideal woman looks like the little mermaid and thinks like Virgina Woolf. I, myself, am 50% Lorelei and 50% Rory.
On a typical Friday night I am
Realizing it must be Friday because of the raucous night life outside my apartment.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a humanist often mistaken for a misanthrope. Or maybe the other way around.

My least favorite part about relationships is meeting new people.
You should message me if
You want to get a drink, and maybe make a regular thing of it. You're creative, intelligent, witty, low drama (no, I mean, for real), and self-aware. You're down with feminists of the of-course-we're-going-to-fuck-on-my-period persuasion.

Come woo me with your dazzling intellect and staggering good looks!
