First, I need to admit that I am far from photogenic, not the best trait to have when trying to advertise one's self online, but it is the truth. I'm not a supermodel (you probably aren't either). With that said, I am told on a nearly daily basis by complete strangers that I am pretty or beautiful so clearly something comes across in person that evades the camera. All pics shown were taken in 12/12-01/13.
I like the obscure. I’d rather venture to someplace like the Mutter Museum than a sporting event.
You’ll catch me singing along to Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service, The White Stripes, Modest Mouse, Ben Folds, Phoenix, The Shins, Aimee Mann, Fleetwood Mac, Nina Simone, The Beatles, you get the idea.
I like to communicate. We will talk. I will listen, I will have my own opinions, I may even say things you don’t like. I won’t try to hurt you. I know how to be in an adult relationship. When I am in one I am on your side, we are a team. If you lose I lose and I don’t like to lose.
Take me on a walk, take me someplace with a lovely view, let’s people watch and have some fun making up fake scenarios, keep me caffeinated and we will have a great time. I have a knack for needing little to have a great time. I make my own sunshine.
Fall is my favorite season. I love to wear dresses and skirts but don’t act like a princess. In fact, I abhor the princess complex that Disney has infected upon our feminine population. I still love Disneyland despite this. I am complicated and occasionally conflicted. At least I acknowledge it. I am honest.
I play commitment, very well. I have never cheated and don’t plan to start. You should engage in monogamy as well. I will not accept less. Once in a serious relationship I have a very active interest in physical affection and seek the same in my partner.
Something I feel good about: on Christmas eve I was at a Starbucks reading. While looking up to rest my eyes for a moment I saw that there was a blind man across the street waiting to cross the intersection. The crosswalk sign came on and he began to proceed into the intersection but was walking into traffic. I bolted from my seat and ran out into traffic to assist him. We did make it safely to the sidewalk. Later the same day, I was on a walk and saw a chickadee sitting on the sidewalk with its eyes closed. I stopped to see if it was hurt. I tried calling the humane society but they were closed. Eventually, a nice lady walking along stopped and offered to get me a shoe box to take the bird home in. I was reluctant to touch it since I have a flock of chickens and was concerned about an avian disease. While waiting for the lady to come back with the box, the bird opened its eyes and hopped over to lean against my leg. I did take it home but unfortunately, it did not make it. It departed before we made it back to my house. At least I tried. To save one life is still something to be proud of. That should give you some insight into the kind of person I am.
