Alright, all cards out on the table!
"The point" to life, to me, is to share it. And when I share myself, it is because I'm ALL IN, and I'm looking for someone who wil appreciate my commitment to them. Everything worth doing needs intimacy or intensity! Surprises make me happy. Red wine makes me happy. Learning new perspectives makes me happy. Feeling included and appreciated makes me happy.
Mainly just looking to make some new friends, and if something special sparks, well, we'll see where it goes!
I hit it off with people who:
• play music & respect the art
• run against the "norm"
• are established in their career
• have traveled
• do what they do cuz they can't not do it!
• find it impossible not to be monogamous when in a relationship
• are somewhat spiritual, or "conscious"
Some more about me... I dabble in guitar, am a professional photographer and video producer (yup, I actually make a living without waitressing on the side!), enjoy a glass of wine and some writing, movies, or working on the interior design of my home at night, and am addicted to traveling (LA gets tedious, and the pretention makes it so fake). Traveling to me is not an extravagance to plan a year in advance; it's part of my lifestyle and I've never understood why people turn it into such an unreachable luxury.
My pet peeve is when people are all talk because I have a "just do it" attitude about most things, no matter how big - I get high on discovering new possibilities and feeling the pride of accomplishment. I get high on a killer live rock show, and am fairly spoiled when it comes to VIP...hey, I've been highly involved in music culture.
Oh, and um, really sorry you bearded and/or very muscular guys out there - like I said, all cards out on the table here, and I just simply won't be attracted. I'm sure there are other girls on here who dig that! I'm also not into competitive sports and would have a hard time connecting with anyone whose life revolves around them.
As for first dates...
I have a interesting idea...ask me.
I love being out in a commonly enjoyed environment where it doesn't have to feel like an interview...like meeting up at an event. Did you meet your best friend by sitting across from each other asking about common interests? I'll venture a guess and say it was more that you were actually out sharing an interest that sparked the friendship! Ergo I tend to veer away from a commonly structured "dating scene." Another option I think would be really cool is you introducing me to (show, not tell!) something you love doing. Then, vice versa! (Or, vice versa all together?)
