ABOUT HER & WHO SHE'S LOOKING FOR

I'm what most people would call a guy's girl--I love beer, sports, pipes, burgers/pizza/bacon, inappropriate jokes, whiskey, and general hanging out with the guys. I'm spontaneous, laid back, and real easy going. I've always been a big fan of open space, but after living in the Grand Canyon for a year and a half, I'm kinda addicted to it. I really love hiking and camping, though I don't do nearly enough of it since moving back to NC a couple years ago.

I love words and grammar/punctuation--I'm that annoying person who not only corrects everyone's grammar, but explains why mistakes was incorrect. My personal library is labeled and organized by the Dewey Decimal System (I'm fairly certain it doesn't get much nerdier than that). I really enjoy reading about and discussing religion--lately, I've specifically been enjoying spiritual memoir, monasticism, and sexual ethics. You know how you're not supposed to talk about religion or politics with people you don't know well? I tend to go out of my way to break that rule. Most folks would call me a feminist--you can take that however you'd like, but I'll simplify it a bit by saying that I believe in civil rights, nonviolence, and opposing patriarchy. I don't expect someone I'm in a relationship with to agree with me on everything--in fact, I rather like disagreeing about various issues, so long as we can talk about/discuss those things in a rational, non-judgmental manner. But I do expect someone I'm in a relationship with to respect the things that I believe, whether or not they agree.

I'm looking for the pretty standard, simple stuff in a partner. Someone to just be real with. I have no interest in games. I'm looking for some I can argue with, someone who will challenge me and call me on my crap. I'm looking for someone to laugh with--I really like to laugh and I really like to pretend I'm funny. I'm looking for someone who will be a total goofball with me, and will also connect with me on an intellectual level. Basically, I'm looking for a best friend. Dating is a really strange phenomenon to me, and it's not always something I'm comfortable with (I much prefer getting to know and developing feelings for someone casually and organically...or at least over beers and just hanging out, rather than dinner, etc).

Honestly, what I'm not looking for is to be treated like a princess. So if you're looking to shower a girl with compliments and protection and adoration...I'm probably not the girl you're looking for.
