I prioritize improving myself, the world, and the lives of others. I would like to find someone who strives for the same. I'm vegan. It's a lifestyle, and not just about what I eat. Don't be fooled into thinking I eat salads all day! I'm a bit of foodie, and going out to eat with my friends is probably one of my favorite social activities.
I'm probably one of the most emotionally stable people you'll meet. I don't tolerate drama or emotional lability well. I like to surround myself with positive people who strive for a healthy mind and body. I'm happy in a variety of environments, from relaxing at home to being active in nature to enjoying the city.
I am self-employed, and try to limit my work-for-pay, so that I have plenty of time to volunteer for the many non-profits that I love. I am an activist for animal rights, human rights, and the environment. I love to travel, and usually take several trips a year. NYC, DC, Austin, California, and Florida are the places I visit the most, but my favorite places tend to involve the ocean, and being in it.
I'm more into independent films than big hollywood movies, but I like any movie that is well done. I love Bollywood and Asian horror. I also like 3D movies, and the DBox theaters like they have in Austin and Houston and apparently every other big city besides Dallas. I try to make most every film festival in the DFW area.
My musical tastes are pretty varied, from alternative, old country and western, rock, pop, Broadway tunes, Top 40, to Indian music. I love local music and indie bands, but jazz puts me to sleep, and new country hurts my brain. Some of my favorite bands include Blue October, Band of Skulls, Dashboard Confessional, Bat for Lashes, Airborne Toxic Event, and Third Eye Blind.
I'm vegan, but don't think for a second that I only eat salads. I do love raw food, though, as well as Thai, Korean, Indian, Ethiopian, Mexican, and Mediterranean. Some of my favorite dishes are pad kee mao, mandoo, sukhi bhaji, pizza, purple rice pudding, and anything with chocolate, of course.
I'm not really a fan of the label bisexual. It seems to imply to others that I'm having sex with at least two people at any given time, which is actually at least two more than reality. It also implies that gender is a dichotomy instead of a continuum, with which I don't agree. I consider myself pansexual. Gender isn't an issue in attraction for me.
