I am an avid reader,love classical and other music, scenic photography, work out, practice yoga, meditation and fasting and last but not least I am a mushroom hunter (profile pics # 3 and # 4) and I forage wild edible plants for food and as a reason to be outdoors and in the wilderness. I have been a vegetarian for 22 years and a vegan for 6.  My initial reason for vegetarianism has been animal rights and I upgraded myself into vegan due to health reasons, animal rights and environmental concerns. I would say I am an ambivert (between extroverted and introverted).  I am interested in politics, social sciences, philosophy and spirituality including mysticism.  I believe in reincarnation.  Starting in my adolencence I have become attracted to eastern religions and when I was in college some of the greek philosophers.  I have lived in four countries, but now prefer more settled life.  I have a son living abroad.

Friendship, Romance, Passion. There's more to it than that, but you get the idea. So what brings me to this web site? Probably the same things that brought you here. Once we are a few years out of school, the usual ways of meeting people become less usual, and the odds of meeting compatible people drop off quickly. I am honest and sincere, emotionally balanced, and financially stable. I enjoy good conversation and evenings out at dinner and the theater. I read more than I watch TV, exercise regularly (but am not a fanatic about it), and enjoy being outdoors in both summer and winter. I'm an amateur stargazer, I practice yoga, and I do NOT spend my weekends and evenings watching sports on TV. My spiritual outlook is Eastern (i.e., India and Tibet, not New York and Boston), my political outlook is left of center, and my sense of humor tends toward British comedy (esp. Monty Python and Blackadder). In brief, my life is good. But it would be better if shared with a woman who values friendship, romance, and passion.

The Original Plan:
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. -Genesis
Back to the Original Plan:
 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the ox: and dust shall be the serpent's food. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, says the LORD. -Isaiah
How many remember it as the Lion and the Lamb?     -The Mandela Effect?
(~ten years ago hippy tenants... claimed to be vegetarian...left candy everywhere, damaged house & a mess)     There were two groups of rats:
The first ate sprouted seeds, lived in harmony and mated often. The second ate candy, quarreled, got divorced and had to move back to Aurora.
Middle pic replacement panel I just made for broken out French windows in rental.
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith. -Proverbs

How could you pass up this offer I'm about to make?     Left corporate job to live dream: wood carver on family farm: apple trees, berries, wild grapes, black walnut trees & lots of edible green plants.    Moo!   No kidding deer!

Generally easy-going.   Open to the possibility of a great relationship one day with the right lady.  

Became vegetarian after Charlotte Gerson Straus explained - "It's easier to eat raw veggies & stay well - than to have to go to her cinic & fight your way back to health."

Some of the authors whose books I have read: Arnold Ehret, Ann Wigmore, John Robbins, Napoleon Hill, Michael Gerber, Tony Robbins, Seth Godin, Jack Canfield, Brian Tracy. Have you read The Essene Gospel of Peace?  It teaches some startling things about Natural Healing.

Casual style - although I have told me that "I clean up well".    Former Democratic candidate.

 Sometimes I sing when feeling good. Women have said they like my voice.

I am very busy making things for people.

If there is time, I make carved Christmas gifts - see rocking triceratops on facebook link to website. 

Accomplishments: I used to bandsaw heart shaped boxes by hand. now draw them with a mouse & program my ShopBot to make them and other shapes.

Anything you can imagine (and then some)  - I can make - using everything from Ancient to high tech equipment.
One of my goals is to train vets some of these skills - to keep them interested in life.

 Most of the time, I am articulate and spell correctly. 

I remember the little things - and surprise a Lady with things that she Loves.

goals include: I am becoming even more: raw/live vegan healthful lifestyle,  skilled at my craft, personally improved, ecological, energy and food independent.

I am building a 'Sprout-Ponics' Tower.   Why? and what is it?  Grow fresh food in your kitchen, all year - automagically!


 Can cook: Lasagna, soup, pies, cookies. Even Made Pizza Oven - that uses branches that fall from the trees as fuel - off grid.

A goal is to do sort of a wine and cheese for a handful of  wood working clients, occasionally.


going more raw, Microgreen - looking for someone with similar goals for encouragement.

Favorite things: dancing, nature walks, watching red cardinals, listening to owls at night   or woodpeckers "knocking" on trees.

Veggie/vegan diet.

Like Mary Oliver, I thrive on long walks among the trees.  I enjoy finding time for being outside, urban farming, camping, making veggie food, going out for Ethiopian food or a chai tea.  I am pursuing adult studies in environmental work and horticulture.  My background is in watercolor painting and Walorf/art education.  I now enjoy integrating art into my everyday life, such as making cloth bags for my bulk goods.  I enjoy reading as well as listening to podcasts, especially On Being, Marjorie Alexander, Rob Bell, Richard Rohr, and Seth Godin.

I have been a vegetarian for much of my adulthood.  I now eat a nearly vegan diet, and I love to pack my fresh organic veggies in my mason jar lunch each day.  I do some fasting along the lines of Valter Longo's FMD diet.

I need to stay in the Chicago area for the next four years, as I am a divorced mom, but I hope to someday move out of the city into a small home in a larger landscape.

Hello, there!  I am smart, sassy, confident, and kind. At times, I'm sensitive and moody.  I love reading books, walking in the rain, watching all genres of films, and spending quality time with my cat and dog. I'm more of an introvert than an extrovert so I need some down time every week.  I love to listen to music and dance.  Also, I am extremely intuitive and can easily pick up other people's vibes.  Currently, I'm obsessed with watching NFL football, the Greenbay Packers are my team.

I'm a very eclectic person with diverse tastes. I've studied Computer Engineering as well as Graphic Design at Purdue University, and I've also taught photography and graphic design at a small private college in Indiana. Currently I write for the technology news site Ars Technica and occasionally freelance for Chicagoist and Alternative Press. I'm pretty easy going but I can be stubborn about things that are important to me. I tend to be very extroverted and have been known to get pretty rowdy at times in public. At home I tend to be pretty quiet and subdued. Things I often spend my time doing: karaoke, dancing, music, photography, autocrossing, crafting, cooking, reading (mostly non-fiction), sudoku, computing, skateboarding (not necessarily in that order).

I'd like to meet a woman who is athletic, accomplished, beautiful, and affectionate. In return, I pledge the following: 1. A voyage at one of my biannual parties: my best friends humor me, boogie until the break of dawn, and when I find them plunging into the leftover moist vegan chocolate cake, they always, always leave a piece for my date. 2. Bootcamp to my favorite beat. I'm a disciplined fitness aficionado, and when the dance music starts, you and me will bear crawl to the top, even if I have to carry you on my back (all about teamwork, baby!). After a good workout, we'll hit the tennis courts (I'm a 3.0), and end the day with a little salsa/merengue. Bachata, anyone? 3. Charisma. I've actually had to work at this one, but it's paid off: chairing political, animal protection, and graduate school alumni groups; and running my own successful business for 17+ years. I strive to be the best-dressed man in the room (people often steal my ensemble for their own...Halloween costume:)).

I love to smile and am looking for someone to smile with. I am a woman who loves to laugh but has no problem carrying a serious conversation. I believe in being honest and have no time for those that don't. I'm open to new adventures but also love staying in and cooking, watching a good movie or reading a good book. I love the sunshine and being active. I try to learn from all experiences in life and enjoy every day to the fullest. In essence, I love life and all that comes with it. I love trying different events and places and it would be great to find someone who is open to the same.

To be called a "Renaissance Man" used to be a compliment. However, to survive in today's society individuals must be "focused" on one thing in order to succeed well. Therefore, persons like myself find it hard to fit in since I have so many interests. One of my favorite things to do in life is learn and master new skills and subjects. I believe this is what breathes new life in us giving fresh perspectives concerning our existence. This also keeps us young:-) Things I have learned well are classical piano, electric guitar, carpentry, bricklaying, physical fitness. Lastly, I believe the most important subject we can learn about is PEACE. Right now I am working on a Master's in Computer Science.

Hi, I'm Josh; pleased to e-meet you! I'm vegan since '93, veggie since '92. I've a BA degree in Music/Biology, with a concentration in Technology/Policy Studies, but formal education is over-rated. I'm tall, with a long, natural mono/omni/uni-dread. Biodiversity is my first love. I sometimes go by the native name Mpchgwb in activist circles, or sometimes Boots.

I'd ideally like to move to the Southern hemisphere, to a car-free community.

I'm a permaculture practitioner.

I'm a biodiesel and WVO/SVO mechanic.

I love to play guitar, piano, bass, and sing.

Ride bikes, grow food.

Resistance is fertile.

If there's nothing left to do but fiddle as Rome burns, I want the song to be really good!

Have you felt the need to reach outside the box? Maybe just phone text with a person on the same page a bit challenging lately? It would be outstanding to have communication and friendship with a person who is different (to keep it interesting) yet likeminded. I am a slender in shape white (German/Engish) 5'9" dude. Western burbs of Chicago, repair vintage electronics, own pit bull rescue dogs (who all are on a vegetarian diet), DJ part time at a club in Chicago. Still have an analog 24 track recording studio. Recorded a lot of house dance music hits with artists over the years. Over 20,000 promo vinyl records in my house that record companies have sent over the years. Not religious or spiritual and do not like to travel. Years off I plan to move to a state with a warmer climate. Now anchored in Illinois with some family, a six bedroom house and a ton of old electronics (mostly vintage televisions). I am open minded on lots of topics and you should be too.  I live with a person who is not vegetarian however a good person. I am not vegetarian for any health reasons, just for basic animal rights. Life is short. Send a message if dare is to improve and expand your circle with a like minded person.

Hi my name is Anthony. I have to be honest I am not a terribly exciting guy. I live alone at my house with my cat ChiChi who is the love of my life. I am 27 years old and work as a Registered Nurse. Most of my days consist of me working, occasionally exercising and laying around with my cat. By reading this I can understand if you seem excited to meet me.

I've had a strange and interesting life; I spent my first years in Alaska, experienced boarding school in India, became a teenager in Chicago, discovered myself in Barcelona, received a degree in Colorado, worked/lived all over the US including Honolulu. Moved back to Chicago in 2010.


Share something unusual or extra special about yourself:

I went to boarding school in India from ages 7-10.

What do you like to do for fun/activities?

Biking along lake Michigan, yoga, hiking, walking around the city, playing basketball, seeing live music, watching a good movie, playing games, going to cultural events in the city, attending spiritual events to name a few...

What does being *conscious* mean to you?

Having awareness of self. Willing to look inside and call yourself on your own issues. Willing to take accountability and responsibility for your issues and work to heal them no matter how difficult. Having a daily practice that focuses on inner growth; mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Constantly working to improve oneself in relation to others. And having fun along the way!

What types of healing modalities do you practice or would you like to learn?

I have a personal spiritual practice with which I look internally to discern where I'm out of alignment and what would be beneficial to heal mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and sexually. My ultimate goal is self mastery; to have a primary relationship with my self so that I may be able to share my self with another as the basis of the relationship.

What are you most passionate about?

I love volunteering my technology and leadership skills/experience at non-profits. I also enjoy mentoring and tutoring people from grade school up through college. Helping others where I feel I can make a difference.

What type of travel do you enjoy?

I love traveling in general and learning about new cultures. I've been fortunate enough to see a lot of the world and I have a lot more on the list!

What types of books/authors do you enjoy and why?

Lately I've been on an audio book kick. Most recently listened to a book on forgiveness by the Dalai Lama and Leonard Nimoy's autobiography.

What kind of music moves you?

Some of my favorite bands include: Radiohead, Phish, Pretty Lights, Bassnectar, Umphreys McGee, String Cheese Incident, Beck to name a few...

What makes you smile?

The beauty of flowers, especially flowering trees.

Where to begin, there is more to me than just a few short paragraphs can tell.   It is hard to tell you about my inner self other than to say I know the value of life.    I know all animals have interests and can be benefited or harmed.    I have a hard time watching a movie when an animal is harmed even if it fictional.    Overall, I cannot help but give a handout to animal that comes to my door with a bowl in his paws. 

A little bit more about me is that I became a vegetarian for ethical reasons.  In addition to believing in animal rights, I am very interested in history.  My favorite topic would be biographies on some people I admire.    I enjoy playing with my dogs and watching documentaries.     I find most everything interesting so I am rarely bored.

Romantic, kind, and gentle guy with a virtually endless variety of interests. I'd like a partner to help me explore the world, and to build a lasting, loving, and supportive relationship. I am able to move almost anywhere to spend life with my twin flame.
Easy-going, witty, patient, loving, compassionate, non-judgmental, and a good & loyal friend. I am very open and emotionally available; some would say evolved. My attitudes and behaviors are very positive, light hearted, and consistent. I will never let go of your hand or stop hugging you. I believe that common values are more important than common interests, and that simple pleasures are the best.
Some of my interests: travel, kayaking, biking, hiking, swimming, keeping fit & healthy, yoga, beaches, mountains, volunteer work, biographies, classical music, NPR, continued learning, word games, writing Haiku, American Southwest, French language & culture, contra dancing, museums, fine art, foreign cinema, and romance in any form. Animal rights supporter and member of many vegetarian/vegan/raw groups.
Thirty-five years of a plant-based diet and a lifelong healthy lifestyle have blessed me with a body, mind and spirit far younger than my chronological age (except for accumulated wisdom, of course). My photos are about three years old, but I have not suffered any significant physical deterioration since they were taken. My diet is 75% raw.

 I will reply to any signed message.

Sometimes, I wish I was born rich instead of handsome. I'm wishywashy, a procrastinator, and introverted. I love sunshine and also warm summer nights. I haven't gotten into the whole cold shower thing yet, but maybe in the future I'll enjoy it as much as a hot womb. I exercise almost daily, and prefer someone that does too, though, it's all a convenience factor for me. I'd rather not drive to most things. I cycle when it's warm and project an emotionless staring 1800's-esk gaze when it's not. Coffee, smoothies, water, and water fruit are the bare essentials. If possible, barefoot or toed shoes.  I like knowing deep dark secrets and won't call the police unless you steal from me or kill things. Somewhat learning programming. Big Apartment building, small square footage, not quite minimalist. I went to public school and speak in one-liners. I dabble and I hope you do too.

 Enjoying life on this amazing planet and looking forward to exploring it more. I consider myself thoughtful, easy going and kind, a good listener, enjoy intelligent conversation and love to laugh. I'm an engineer, environmental and animal rights advocate, handyman and a news junkie. Love documentaries. Outdoor enthusiast, hiker, photographer and cyclist. I'm a bit of a science nerd. Interested in philosophy, consciousness, ecology, earth science and history. Passionate, compassionate and sometimes a bit overwhelmed by all that needs to be done in this world. I grew up on a farm in Illinois but have been an urban dweller for the past 25 years. I spent several years working as an engineer and now have my own independent environmental consulting practice. My work provides me with a good degree of financial independence and a flexible schedule. One of my newer passions is sailing. I've joined a sailing club here in Chicago and volunteer teaching new sailors. My dream is to one day sail around the Mediterranean. I enjoy traveling, hiking through the mountains, and visiting other cultures. I'd love to have a partner that wants to travel with me - South America, Africa, India, Europe; to far-flung places in the world. I don't want to do it alone!

I’m an outdoorsy guy who loves to get into nature. I’m gregarious and have an Airbnb just so I get to meet people. I don’t take myself too seriously and I’d like to meet a woman who’s up for life’s adventures.


Work takes me around the world so I find the time to tour the luminous streets of Hong-Kong, sampling non-dairy gelato’s in Milan or haggling in the quirky streets of Rio.

I live a whole food, plant based diet life.

I’m happiest when I’m home because some of the best times in life, I’ve spent spent sitting around tables with family and friends. Laughing and eating into the night, I guess I’m just looking for someone who wants to be there laughing next to me.

I have just recently joined the online dating scene, because at my age and lifestyle it is difficult to meet someone with the same dreams and desires. I have always had pets and finally became vegan because I cannot be a part of the animal suffering.  I cannot even watch animals get hurt in fictional movies. I enjoy spending time with my cats and my dogs and taking care of them. I have a huge heart and have a hard time turning them away.  If I ever win the lottery (which I rarely ever play-maybe three times in my life!) I will own a shelter and maybe even a vegan restaurant!! 

I like many activities but seem to not do them much anymore. Anything outdoors, like kayaking (twice this summer). I like sports, but I'm not a fanatic. I used to own a motorcycle, but finally sold it due to lack of riding it.  I like to watch movies to relax, especially those based on true events and inspirational movies.  I know that no two people are the same and have different likes, but my two big things are my animals and faith. If you have those two desires as well, all the other things are secondary and will work themselves out. I don't mind trying new things and I do like to learn new things.

I also have a strong faith in God and my desire to visit the Ark and Creation museum has not been fulfilled yet.  I was a high school science teacher for 13 years but relocation circumstances after my divorce has kept me out of teaching. I currently tutor and wait tables until a new door opens up.

I have a coffee cup that reads "Pet rescuer... my pocket book is always empty but my heart is always full".....i work hard so that my pets can have a good life. Don't get me wrong, I like to do things for myselft too!

I'm not a fancy person, I prefer to be comfortable...but will dress up when I need to.

If I had to label myself for this site, I'd say "ethical animal rights vegan." I'm bookish but also physically active. When I'm not working, you can find me at the gym (the dance class is my favorite) or in a wine bar reading a book. My full-time career is in farmed animal protection. Putting my best foot forward, here are some adjectives that I think describe me: kind, caring, romantic, energetic, intelligent, and independent.

I thought my grad school essays were we go..I once wrote an award winning essay on Snoopy on how he's a Renaissance Man much like Leonardo Da Vinci. I're thinking...what? Here's my logic...Snoopy was a dog whose best friend was a bird (Woodstock) and a human (Charlie Brown)... he's so likable that even other SPECIES can relate to him. He's a WWI flying ace, plays tennis at Wimbledon (I played there also in 2001..great story here...ask me about it!) drives a car and can speak French....he is one cool dude (or canine...whatever)! I guess I see a lot of me in Snoopy and Da Vinci! You still reading...;-)

I grew up in the Chicagoland area so have solid Midwestern values with a global perspective. Have traveled far and wide (seen 30 countries and counting). I'm hard working, ambitious and generous. I am financially secure and invest wisely. Very in tune with my intuition and have a soft touch. ;-) The foundation of a great relationship is communication. Both looks and money can be fleeting but it’s the emotional connection you make with someone that sustains you. Authenticity plus Vulnerability = Connection. Active listening is the key.

Face to Face is where its at, but I'll give this a shot.

my kids come first....

Honesty, loyalty, faith and respect is how I operate.

I'm totally new to this online dating crap and I'm NOT looking for a "hook up".

Everybody says they think I'm in my twenty's.... my friends seem to always poke fun at me. Somebody the other day thought I was my daughters boyfriend.... Yeesh....

I really don't act my age... Not that im immature.... But um...yeah....uh right. Selected few "get" me. I have a young heart.

I'm not a player or friend collector.....I've never even had a Facebook account..or any social media (personally.)

I'm silly, but a great friend....someone to depend on.

I do impersonations....I make voices of all sorts... Lol.

I still think prank calls rule.

I love to travel.

I was born and raised in Florida on the beach, and also spent 9 years in New Orleans.

I've been in Illinois for 3 years.

I'm a musician/songwriter, construction business owner and an recreational chef. I play in a band (sing and play guitar), and have always since I was in high school(different bands) (so cliche lol)  

I have a home studio and I write music on a multitrack recorder. I play multiple instruments.

I Love music. No really..   I need music.... everything from Country to punk to ska to soul to surf to rock to r n b to hip hop to jazz to reggae records.....

 I love to dance and let go.

I like to be fun and free, but also responsible and forthright.

I'm a southern gentleman who is looking to enjoy what life has to offer. I would like to go exploring the Midwest, while also enjoying the local festivities in the surrounding areas in Madison and Chicago.
I love going to the Farmers' Market on the weekend. Especially when the sun is shinning. I love cooking! And I strive to try out new recipes throughout the year. So be prepared to have your taste buds rocked.

A few years back I went through a health phase in my life, which led me to trying to improve my diet. It eventually evolved to my current plant-based life-style (>6 years), which I enjoy. I like it when my grocery store has something new for me to try.
I like sci-fy, and how it opens up the mind to thinking outside the box. I'm also a big fan of the classic video games, and I would take a Mario game over the latest Call of Duty game.

Hello! I live with an 11 y/o Akita-bull companion named Lilly. I am living vegan for a few reasons that I believe define me as a person. Animals - through activism I have come to realize they are really number one! I am outraged by what humans are doing to animals. Health - with a history of preventable disease among my family. Science & Politics - our life choices should be guided by the facts in almost every way. Sustainability - I have always had a deep feeling of connection to all life on Earth. Ethics - the vegan lifestyle allows me to push myself to live more purely & challenge others' worldviews to be more in line with justice. Discipline - I enjoy the routine of meal preparation & food exploration. 

I have a bachelor's degree in Community Health and have done some relocation & travel for work in the past. Today, I enjoy being back home in Chicago, as this city has everything the modern world can offer. I have a network of friends and vegan community for which I am very grateful.

I enjoy all seasons,and all animals with the exception of a few insects & a couple reptiles. I am an athlete at my core.  My most practiced sport was wrestling, while my hobby sports will always be hockey and biking. I have traveled for sporting events & music and really enjoy camping. I'm into all kinds of music, especially live. I've love exploring the local music venues for talent in Chicago! I enjoy all kinds of activities & new experiences. There's nothing like some good wine and deep conversation though!

For Fun

I can best describe myself and my ideal companion as someone who: likes to go for walks through the forest preserves, and appreciates nature. Someone who is into EXPERIENCES above materialism. Someone who is spontaneous and has a sense of adventure. Someone who is DOWN to EARTH, NOT SUPERFICIAL. Someone who is unique maybe even eccentric, who knows how to be themself. Whos idea of a goodtime is to see open-sky national parks rather then concrete jungles, shopping malls and bumper to bumper traffic. Someone into fitness, physical health and staying active/ shaping up. Someone who loves animals.

I also am a big musical fan especially Hamilton as cliche as that sounds.

Vegan, pansexual, Asexual. Southern Liberal. Equality Feminist. Foodie. Single parent. straight edge.

i like different kinds of music, indie, electronic, rock.I like Empire of the sun, and Grimes. Music with poetic quality, not mainstream music with no moral value.

I like animals, and healthy food, and quiet public places.
i love personal intimacy, and intellectual conversation, but mostly just some chill, good clean fun.

 I'm abstain but not religious , I'm also alternative but don't live an alternative lifestyle.
I don't put up with racism or sexism, or abuse in any of its forms. Mostly pacifist, but I defend my virtue if disrespected.

Im allergic to cats, and grass, but i dont let any of those things stop me from doing things.
I do like to cook and make new food.

Im very ambitious, i just like to take my time and relax no matter what im doing, i love peace and quiet but i can be silly and loud half of the time. Sometimes i can be hyper too but i try to stay 
chill as much as i can lol

I dont take myself seriously,i like to laugh and tell jokes, but i do take life and relationships very seriously.

I enjoy my solitude but get silly and loud when I feel like it, I'm practical, logical, mostly organized. I'm loyal, responsible, and extremely dependable. 

tend to be observant and good with facts, and I believe I'm very calm and composed - I rarely lose my temper, and when I do I try to handle it in a logical manner. 

I've got my feet firmly on the ground and I can take criticism quite well, but ignorance not so much. 
Some people might call me stubborn sometimes, but that is only because I don't readily accept opinions which are based on irrational emotions instead of verifiable facts. 
In love, my motto is "Love is based on duty and responsibility". 
I prosper with the male Nurturer (ISFJ) or the Guardian (ESTJ).

Hi beautiful veggie lovers,

My name is Keeley. If I were asked to describe myself in one word, it'd be passionate. I have set an intention to find an equally passionate partner and my first step is this website. I've been on OKC and tinder for years and I'm dooone with meat eaters. Part of me feels like I'm done with men because of the crappy experiences I've had with them over the past 10+ years. I'm totally open minded, but I find myself attracted to those who have a balance of ying  and yang. I also find myself very attracted to earth signs. Touch and affection is very important to me. Eye contact, too. I have lots of preferences but I am very open to whoever comes my way. If the idea of a partnership that is full of sleepovers, cuddling, making out, engaging sex, home-cooked vegan meals, dancing around my apartment to 90s r+b we're likely a great match. Feel free to message me and if you can't think of anything clever to say just send me (an) emoji(s) and I'll find something cute to begin the conversation with. Just considering all the sweet shy guys/gals out there. Much love to you all and I hope to talk to y'all soon ??????

I work in the medical field as a cytotechnologist. I have my specific tastes in music but I don't judge others because we cannot control what type of music our brain likes. I can listen to different types of music from jazz to pop to heavy metal, with a preference of rock/heavy metal.

Not consuming animals is also important to me, I do not believe they should suffer for me to live. I could really go on and on because I'm an open book, but I'm more interested in hearing from you and getting to know one another hopefully in more convenience means, like talking on the phone or even sitting across from one another- I'm old school that way ;-)

I am working toward a PhD in Physics and Astronomy. I have few more years left. Activities I enjoy include most sports, camping, hiking, and seeing and learning about new places. I go on and off with binge reading and binging netflix. 

I have always leaned toward the left side of the political spectrum, but have recently moved farther left. I am member of the Democratic Socialists of America. Over the past two years I have spent much of my spare time trying to educate myself on intersectional issues of racism, sexism, gender and sexual identities; additionally how these and other issues play into socioeconomic issues we face. I am eternally looking to learn about other people and their struggles so I can do what I can to help as a white cis-male. Once I learn, I love to educate. Originally, the educating was focused on general environmentalism and how veganism plays a major roll in helping our future. I probably will not stay in science to too long. The other thing i would like to do is use my knowledge of coding and data science to help nonprofits that help the world become a better place.

Hi! I'm Brooke, I'm 18, and I'll be going to university in the fall for philosophy (and staying in Chicago). I used to be really into the punk scene and I've always been straight edge (meaning I refuse to drink, or take any substances with the purpose of achieving a high). I like older music usually leaning towards the alternative spectrum. I've been an ethical vegan for about a year now but before that I only ate absolute junk and I have the body to show for it haha. Although I tend to live off chipotle and oreos at times, I do enjoy cooking healthy meals and I'm gradually losing weight :). I don't work out for the purpose of working out, rather, I like to hike, explore nature, etc. to get my excercise in (sorry, no thnx to crossfit). To be quite honest, though, I don't care too much about appearances and I'd like to meet someone who feels similar. Our bodies are so fragile and temporary. Not to mention, they aren't completely up to us and I think our minds hold the important stuff. What'd you expect me to say? I'm a philosophy major. I love literature, history, psychology, theatre and music. I'm an absolute nerd. I sing a lot of opera/art songs and I've been in too many productions to count. I was almost a music performance major, too! I'm also the biggest procrastinator you'll ever meet. I like going to concerts, movies, bowling, plays/musicals, and just the arts in general.

I am a fun loving and easy going gal.  I am independant, content and grateful for my lovely life. I am fine being single, but I am only single because I haven't found my soul mate yet....I am a passionate person and I don't have the capacity to settle for a relationship that isn't soul awakening and uplifting.

I have been vegan for two years and I have never felt more wonderful! Giving up animal cuisine has been the best decision I have ever made. I am healthy and strong and compassionate in a new way, and I am looking for a man who is the same.

I have a daughter who lives with me full time, so you must be a family man. If you have your own child or children, all the better as far as I am concerned, but I can't deal with your overbearing ex or drama in any way. I have worked hard to rid my life of that junk, so i am not about to take on yours.

I have a Masters Degree in Clinical Psychology, but I am raising my daughter on my own so I am currently working in her school district as a high school study hall monitor. This allows us to have a parallel schedules so I can earn a living and still be a "stay at home mommy" for her. I drop her off at school, go to work and get off work just in time to pick her up from school in the afternoon. Working in a high school is challenging and fun, but not my life's ambition. It only demands what I am willing to give to my profession- not much. I am unwilling to give less than everything I have to my kid. Being a psychologist right not would take more of my resources than I am willing to give to a job at this time. Raising her is my privilage and I am honored to make sacrifices on her behalf. So, if you want a woman who is all about her career and making a lot of money, I am NOT your girl. I don't care about money. At all.

Finally, I have a lot on my plate, so unless I think you and I will be long term, I will not pursue a relationship with you. But, if we do hit it off, I will be true and honest and loving and all in.

My name is Robert.  I have three professions; I estimate construction and save tax payers hard earned dollars, I'm a professional photographer and I'm a Reiki Master Teacher. I love all the work that I do for its very rewarding.

I shoot Photograhy for some not for profit groups gratis as this is my way of giving back to the community.

The Reiki that I do is also very amazing. I work with all your chakras placing crystals on them. Reiki relieves stress and if stress can be eliminated..this allows the body to heal.

My lifestyle is very easy going. I love life and do my best to live it to the fullest everyday. I've been eating a plant based vegan diet for the past 23 years and was raised a vegetarian.

I'm a very down to earth person who loves life.

I am a tall, caramel complected, medium brown haired (wavy and natural), city girl with brown eyes. I grew up in Chicago, but went to school on the east coast. I have no kids, but have a large 4 year old dog. I am a Project Manager and Yoga teacher in Chicago. I love traveling, reading, watching movies and trying different veggetarian foods. My 2 favorite mottos in life are ..."Know Thyself"...and ..."Honesty is the Best Policy". I am seeking a secure, ambitious, stable and confident man who is willing to have a fun and exciting life.

 I'm honest therefore, would like someone who isn't afraid of the truth. I like when a man is confident ...and secure enough to give me space sometimes, yet comfortable with expressing his love, and passionate enough to lead me to his love. I like to learn, and enjoy progress. I surround myself with people that embrace personal development. 

   In my off time, I enjoy new restaurants, movies and travel. (special note: I am a Vegetarian and enjoy trying new things). In my down time, i enjoy rest, reading in bed, and Meditation. - I am blessed with a close knit family with solid values.  - When I'm not in a yoga session, .it's time to have fun, explore and enjoy life to the fullest.

I love surrounding myself with positive people. I feel the ingredient to success in life is to be around the right crowd. I am always optimistic, and like to make others smile and laugh. I can be talkative but also a great listener. I live and work in downtown Chicago. I like living in the city, there so many activities to engage yourself in. I am always working hard, trying to be a professional in my occupation. On the weekends and weeknights, I like going out for coffee with friends, maybe watch a movie, and check out the nightlife. I live by the motto, "time is scarce", so you have to make the most of it, or else time will pass you by.
