Shy and intelligent gender-neutral woman looking for friendship first, open to more. Independant spirit but some physical disabilities. Devoted friend and partner, looking to come first in someone's life some day. Anyone answering must be queer-positive, including trans-positive, open-minded, and patient. If you have a cat, I may not be able to come visit you in your home, but that's okay with me.
Presently, my writing career is just starting to take off. I've dabbled in fandom and fan-fiction as well and am very fan-positive, though I no longer participate myself. My favourite shows are Silent Witness, Dr Who, Torchwood, Stargate: SG-1, and (for brain-candy) any of the American crime/forensics shows. My favourite novel is 'Invisible Cities' by Italo Calvino. I like challenging and intelligent writing; my bookshelves are full of classics and pulp science fiction and a handful of prime small-press publication. On the other hand, I love comic books and need someone who will put up with my complaining about how Marvel has jumped the shark (AGAIN!).
I'm interested in you whether or not you're academic, as long as you're a learner who loves to challenge themselves with new things. I especially like smart people who aren't afraid to get their hands dirty.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
First dates should be quiet, somewhere comfortable, with good food and good music, where the atmosphere doesn't overwhelm the conversation. Walks in the park, rain or shine, are also fabulous. Umbrellas, park benches, books, and a bit of something to feed the birds all sound lovely, too.
