My description:

Please note:  Back when I was filling out this profile I was strictly looking for a boyfriend. I'd be happy to find friend-friends, male, female, or other, as well. If I make a male friend who rings my chimes and I ring his, cool--but chime-ringing is no longer a must for me. Now onward to the profile:

Possessor of a goofy sense of humor, collector of off-the-beaten-path music, and lover of indie and classic films, wordplay, trivia, and intelligent TV shows. Enjoy bookstores way more than bars. Voracious reader of fiction, literary nonfiction, memoirs, more. An ethical vegetarian for more than half my life, I'm now a vegan and will be for the rest of my life. Having my diet and lifestyle match what's always been in my heart is the greatest. Volunteering for animal advocacy groups takes up much of my free time; working for the betterment of animals is enormously important to me. I also volunteer to help humans and serve on my office's sustainability team to do my bit to help the environment.

I'm a copy editor. If you can spell, or at least care enough to spell-check, I like you already.

I'm a liberal nonsmoker who only wants to date the same. Socially I'm kind of conservative; you won't find me donning lampshades, though I'm pretty darned affable once you warm me up. Though I'm not big on sports, I run, walk, and otherwise exercise (and rhyme!); I like to hike and canoe, too. I love kids but have none; I share my home with two rescue cats. I love dogs as well; I hope to someday adopt a grehyound or two. I recycle, and I try not to acquire lots of stuff (but books, LPs, and CDs don't count!). Race is not an issue; if it is for you, you're not for me.



I love funny, smart men who read smart books and watch smart films and appreciate funny, smart women. Sassy but not mean-spirited humor is swell. Please be ethical, forthright, and secure in your convictions. And silly sometimes. Life is better when there's silliness to share.

I'd like to meet a cracklingly bright, sassy, funny, non-Republican, honest guy who loves offbeat books, films, and music and doesn't take moral shortcuts. I hope to meet a compassionate, sensitive, expressive, youngish (preferably within 10 years of my age, plus or minus) fellow with a kind and open heart, someone who's tolerant, nonmisogynistic, emotionally available, and communicative, and loves animals, but not just the ones we've been socialized into thinking of as pets. As I alluded to above, I hope to find a fellow reader. I don't really get people who don't read. 

Deep conversations, yes. Playfulness, yes, too, please.

Unless you're in a position to do most of the traveling yourself, I'm not currently able to pursue a long-distance (i.e., non-Floridian) thing. However, I actually like road-tripping, so if you're within driving distance of me, holler.

Thanks for reading, and good luck to you in your search.
