I'm, a nerdy, cuddly, intelligent woman seeking same! I´m a hobbyist fantasy writer, cartoonist and lifelong Vancouverite. I´m always looking for creative outlets, which I often find in other bundles of imaginative energy. I adore listening to fellow hobbyists discuss their own work, be they artists, writers, or even craftsmen! I also enjoy joint projects and find them a wonderful way to bond.
Shared passions are integral to a successful friendship. I find it impossible to become emotionally involved with someone who shares none of my interests. Hobbies, fandoms, etc. may be superficial, but they're the only bonding agent that'll guarantee my attachment.
We don't have to be wildly in love to start a relationship. That sort of thing takes time, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't have fun on the way. I believe physical expressions of attraction are super important part of coupledom, whether you'll be together forever or just for a year. Who knows? We might even fall in love~ I'm open to all the possibilities.
I don't have exceptionally high aspirations, but I enjoy pondering hypothetical 2020s in which I've a steady income, intimate friend/girlfriend and some semblance of respectability. Currently, I lack the income and the woman -- or maybe all three, though I'll let you be the judge of that. ;-) For now, I've devoted myself to pursuing happiness within the constraints of an unremarkable lifestyle. I live at home.
My musical tastes are all over the place. I fall in love with tracks, not artists or genres. =) That said, Lenka, Mika, and Regina Spektor are my go-to musicians when I've had a rough day!
A sampling of the novels I've read: Swordspoint by Ellen Kushner, Airborn (and sequels) by Kenneth Oppel, Havemercy (and sequels) by Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett, Stardust by Neil Gaiman, Chicken Soup for the Soul series (aw, don't roll your eyes!), Leviathan (and sequels) by Scott Westerfeld, and The Queen's Necklace by Teresa Edgerton, anything with characters my inner slasher can latch onto
A sampling of the films I've enjoyed: Shrek 1+2, Inception, Stardust (adaptation of the Gaiman novel), The King's Speech, Big Fish, Hanna, Zombieland, Sherlock Holmes 2009 + 2011, Real Steel, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Star Trek 2009, anything with characters my inner slasher can latch onto
I'm fiercely devoted, and just as discerning about whom I choose to be devoted to. I'm always down with 'intimate friends' scenarios, though, so long as we can actually be friends! I'm super duper physically affectionate.
Above all else, I value honesty and communication. I hope you do, too.
I was raised in a conservative Filipino Catholic household, but I've been out to my more-or-less tolerant mother since 2004. Unforts, my family is unsupportive of my sexuality and integrating a partner into my home life will be both impossible and tragic. All my friends know I'm queer as a Double Rainbow. Mind, I'm a 'good girl', but my loyalty doesn't come cheap -- friendship and affection need time to bloom. If you can make me your princess, I'll tear down the sky for you.
That said, I hope you aren't under the impression that I'm mega uptight! I'm a child at heart and lots of fun, so long as we have a mutual interest. Don't be afraid to drop me a line, okay~?
For the talker type: Let's go someplace quiet and talk for awhile. You and me at the park; at a bookstore; at a cute little coffee house on Broadway. We'll introduce our energies to one another with fingers crossed, playing it all by ear. Maybe we'll have media players along. Maybe we'll even share earphones. =)
For the doer type: Let's go to the mall or eat at a restaurant. Maybe we'll see a movie (great bonding agent!) or window shop. We can mill around for hours, taking in the sights and sounds-- and each other, of course. If you won't lose me, take me around the city. Let's buy snacks from a food stall and laugh over a day well spent.
For the undecided: We'll figure something out. ;)
