I'll edit this later, to remove the want to date bits, but otherwise it is the same. My personality hasn't changed!
I am looking for someone to have fun and spend time with. I am an active person. Not in the exercise sense, but I like to be busy in some way, even if it is just hanging out chatting or watching tv. Even though I often complain I have no free time, I can't stand having nothing to do for any length of time. I would prefer to date, that's why I'm here, but I am 100% open to a straight forward friendship as well. My interests are diverse and not necessarily the norm, but I love them and feel no need to conform.
I can be kind of shy until I get to know someone a bit, and then I just kind of open up and can chat nonstop about whatever. I have a lot of hobbies, most of which are indoorsy things. I love to read fantasy books and manga, and watch a lot of anime. I like going out to movies or museums when I have the chance, shopping, or wandering around Boston. When the weather's good I like walking along the Charles or just hanging out outside at a park. I am also a member of the SCA, so I do some medieval reenactment, which includes sewing my own renaissance clothes, and I enjoy archery and thrown weapons (learning to throw axes and knives). I'm not particularly athletic, most of my hobbies are fairly low key, but I do enjoy walking, volleyball and swimming (when I get the chance) and I'd love to do some (gentle) hiking.
Right now I am a research technician, and I am am going to school part time to get a masters degree in pharmaceutical science.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Happily in a relationship. But I guess it is going out to dinner and getting to know each other. That worked for us!
