My self-summary
My mom says I'm a catch. I like handmade things, compelling stories, good design, art, symbols, patterns, mindfulness, house plants, profanity, graffiti, ceramics, olive oil, garlic, salt, hiking, cities with hills, the ocean, the country, horn sections, footwear, seasonality (especially Autumn and Christmas), heirlooms, figuring out transit systems, pot, wine, liquor with limes, and Saturdays.
What I’m doing with my life
Generally having a blast. Trying to be generous in spirit and time. Trying to surround myself with considerate people and thoughtful and well-made things. I'd like to raise a dog when I have the time and space.

Recently left my secure but dead-end fashion job to build a brand with friends. I'm a little bicoastal right now, which is pretty wild.
I’m really good at
Recently learned the word hygge, and I'm really good at that. Making eggs. A few other things too, but I don't want to tip my hand too early.

I really like to cook. There are few things I don't like to eat, but blue cheese is at the top. I fundamentally disagree with people who don't share food.
The six things I could never do without
I can do without, but if I had my way...

naps
knolling
headphones
campfire smell
swimmable body of water
the first 10 seasons of The Simpsons
I spend a lot of time thinking about
habits, quality, reciprocal altruism, loyalty, space, sex, history, growing older, what that must've been like/is like/will be like.

"It's absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious." - Oscar Wilde
On a typical Friday night I am
A) Probably NY (native) or LA (learning...slowly).

B) Highway to hell

C) If I'm really lucky (Trying to love the art, and not the artist.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was a kid, I had to wear my socks inside-out, and I only wore sweatpants for about a year. I remember being very comfortable.
You should message me if
You're intelligent and nurturing. Adventurous with good manners. You're active and artsy. You know how to flirt. You'd be down for a cocktail party, or the outdoors. And some deviant behavior.

In NY, hopefully you live in Brooklyn or lower Manhattan.
In LA, north of the 10? Los Feliz, Silverlake, Echo Park, Downtown.
Sorry, proximity counts

Looking for ethically non-monogamous casual dating. Open to different kinds of connections - flings, or regular (and potentially deeper) things. Good conversation and laughter first. I'm a big fan of honest communication, and I try not to waste people's time.

Must love rap.
