***Helpful Hint: There are so many handsome and charming men on this site that to stand out, you should totally respond to the bolded text at the bottom of my profile. It will totally bump you to the top of the list!***
I'm an outgoing plus-sized girl with a deep love of a good book and a bar with great manhattans. I love my work with social justice and am really committed in particular to workers' rights and ending violence in Oakland, but I also love to take time out from work to cook, enjoy a hike or a walk in the beatiful outdoors (urban or not), hang out with friends, play guitar (badly) and sing (a little bit better).
I definitely think smart is sexy (and emotional intelligence counts), and I'm a sucker for a guy who's really passionate about what he does and has developed a thoughtful view on issues relating to social justice. I'm mixed race and date men of all races, though I tend to connect better with men of color.
I'm looking for the possibility of a real relationship where we can laugh at ourselves and support each other.
If you think we might click, I'd love a message from you letting me know what you thought about the title of my profile. You'd be surprised how many guys are just looking for a booty call, so I'll probably only respond to a message that gives me something to work with, rather than just " 'Sup. You're sexy." Even if I am ;)
(A good friend of mine actually filtered men by asking them to tell her something that would make her laugh--it's how she ended up with a really wonderful, kind and sexy teacher. :) )
A great night to me would be a meal at a hole-in-the-wall ethnic restaurant, live jazz, or a couple of drinks while we get to know each other! A walk or hike would also be fabulous.
