27 Helens agree: I've always been a very creative type with an old soul, but I'll never say no to a good concert or a lively party. I'll always say yes to karaoke. Dancing keeps me young, laughter keeps me grounded. I'm a loyal friend that can be goofy or sentimental, whatever is called for.
On a personal level, I'm very passionate about improving my skills as a dancer, artist, and chef. In fact, I'm setting out on a long journey away from my current sales/marketing career, hoping to find myself back in the arts world. On a global sense, I'm very passionate about food politics, animal rights, environmental causes, and people finding their joy and calling -- because, doesn't everyone deserve that chance? Just saying. I have a very broad taste in music (everything from The Knife to Hossam Ramzy to Simian Mobile Disco to The Specials).
I'd like to find someone who shares similar interests, or at least can understand them. I appreciate dedication, compassion, hard work, and integrity in a person, and especially in a partner. Anyone in my company MUST LOVE FOOD like I do. It's also helpful if you're sure you'd be cool with my cats. They're cool, too. I would like to (eventually) be in a long-term relationship, but that doesn't mean I'm not open to just meeting some new, positive, fun people to hang out with! I always love adding new friends to my circle. Or creating new circles, or squares, whatever.
P.S. Perhaps it's worth noting that I have tattoos and am very open to/interested in tasteful, thoughtful body art. If that is something that makes you squeamish, I'm happy to explain why I believe in it as self-expression. If you're completely turned off by this, then don't bother telling me why you think it's wrong. Live and let live!
