Hi I'm Alison! My life is really wonderful & and I'd love to find someone I can spend it with and learn new things from.
Originally North Texan, now a city slicker, I'm pretty wacky and love meeting people and hearing their stories. I think it's very important to learn about other people, to try to be understanding, and to have compassion.
I adore traveling, which I know most people do, but I run a travel website and work in the industry. I'm always desperate to run off on another trip and I'm away most weekends. I would like to scuba dive more than once a year. I lurve hiking/camping and I just walked 500 miles across Spain. It took a long time!
Art historian by education and I can talk your ear off about Bauhaus photography in Texas.
People call me a Jill of All Trades and I'm fairly skilled at making people laugh. I own more than one evening gown and occasionally live glamorously. I prefer looking at people & smiling as I walk down the streeet instead of being on my phone all the time. My PlayStation name is BloodDrunkBarbie, and that sums me up pretty well.
I like pretty much all film genres, even bad horror films, which I always have to see by myself because no one else wants to go with me.
Through the Wormhole is one of the best television shows ever. It combines theoretical science with anecdotes of Morgan Freeman's life. Brilliant. Others: RuPaul's Drag Race, High Maintenance, Broad City, Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Frasier, Kimmy Schmidt, etc etc.
Classical/opera & Spanish guitar are probably my go-to favorites, and catchy pop music (because I'm a dance machine). I love crooners & Ella & Nat & Louis & company. J'aime Adele (My karaoke go-to) Lady Gaga (esp her jazzy stuff), and Elvis Costello.
