That being said, I try hard to meet people where they are in life. I just try to chat with maturity and honesty. I am eager to share my life with good people wherever knowing each other leads.
I gravitate toward people who challenge me (and everyone else) to grow & think, laugh a ton, be curious, tell great stories, have adventures (both lived and mental) and are focused predominantly on the whole of the planet, not finding a person to live a life removed from what billions of others are experiencing.
I love to be around people with a giant sense of humor who make their own fun wherever they go, yet are serious about important things.
I work hard to broadcast that being close to me is a safe space where you can be 100% you. I treasure this experience myself when I am lucky enough to find it. I like to be informed when I flunk.
I spend equal time with friends and by myself. I like talking, animals, baking, cooking, reading, thinking, practicing massage, hiking, studying anatomy, walking, day tripping, exercise, sleep.
Life is great right now, but it would be nice to make some friends and even share life with someone who prefers the company of good people, silence, stars, sun, water and all kinds of animals. I get tired of activities that are centered around looking perfect, acquisition, increasing wealth/status, buying things, & networking. I find the natural world and honest human company the best entertainment in life.
It's nice to be around things you don't have to impress.

Message me if you like a person who is a mix of a lot of different ideas and cultures, a traveller, humorous-serious balanced, flawed, honest and excited to meet compelling people; a thinker; a wanderer; someone who talks in stories and lives to hear them; and if you aware of the privileges you were born with, whatever they are, and are figuring out how to use them for other's benefit. Message me if you want to gain a true friend.
I believe I can connect with anybody, but I have a really hard time with circuit life, arrogance, materialism, deceit and people who: have to be the center of attention; Are looking for sex primarily but tell yourself you're not; Are looking for an LTR immediately; Lie as a lifestyle; Are controlling with no desire to change; Don't have a serious problem with power imbalances in relationships; Are not at least somewhat invested in social action or important dialogue; Fall apart without your cell phone; Consider celebrity gossip important; Can't take a compliment; Only want hot and/or wealthy friends; Live to be seen; Fear silence
