New at this so bear with me. I love a real conversation as opposed to just trading stories. Beauty can be seen everywhere if we choose to see it and the level of tribalism in our nation is disappointment to say the least. I love other cultures and ideas. A life of the mind as it were. I'm good humored with love for all and malace toward noone.
Hey I completely deny my existence prior to relatively short time ago... REALLY short time 6 years ago. One day of memorial dinner of my father, my close friend i grew up together found old black and white photo where we are standing next to our moms and we are lower than table stands. He made several glossy digital copy and handed to me one of them as memory. The rest he gave to other friends and relatives on the photo. Well, I did not want to disappoint him, because not longer than several years ago I destroyed completely my bio and all prior printed photographs including one he found(I had same picture as well) and negatives... I carried the photo to my moms house and left it inside vase All that means that I burned my past and technically not myself anymore I believe in EVERYTHING that builds TRUST. Any other problems do vanish in such society

Hello, I'm Hannah. Just another questioner of the status quo. Want to know more ? Ask. Cause for goodness sake this isn't Tinder.
Hello. Welcome to my profile. I live in the desert city of Phoenix, with my dog, and family nearby. Crowds exhaust me, but I love being social. My closest friends are my sisters, and a few amazing people I've known for a very long time. I'm one of those friends for life kind of people, but it takes a while for me to warm up. I usually have a smile to share with everyone, and I find other human beings seem to feel quite comfortable telling me their stories, regardless of whether they know me or not. I'm okay with that, I like most of the people I meet. I also like the conversations that happen on this site. I most likely have a social media addiction because of it. And here are some quotes from interesting well known people: “Maybe that’s enlightenment enough: to know that there is no final resting place of the mind; no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom... is realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.”~Anthony Bourdain "Who is more humble? The scientist who looks at the universe with an open mind and accepts whatever the universe has to teach us, or somebody who says everying in this book must be considered the literal truth and never mind the fallibility of all the human beings involved?" ~Carl Sagan "Freethinkers are those who are willing to use their minds without prejudice and without fearing to understand things that clash with their own customs, privileges, or beliefs. This state of mind is not common, but it is essential for right thinking."~Leo Tolstoy "The word 'humanism' has more than one meaning—Generally, it implies a desire to think for yourself; to 'do your own thing'; to accept the results of free inquiry, whatever they may be; and to act in accordance with those results, in the light of reason and in co-operation with others, for the promotion of human happiness." ~Barbara Smoker
Are you going for points too?
My name is Joe. But my friends call me..... Joe.
Schroedinger to find out if the cat lived or died, and Lincoln to find out how he liked the play.
I am a happy person. I could best describe myself as an introverted extrovert or an extroverted introvert! Is there such a thing? I do enjoy being around people but I have a cut off point and then I need down time to recharge. I am not necessarily looking for dates, although I am open to opportunities that interest me, but the reason I joined this site is to have a platform to interact with like minded people and not so like minded people and maybe make some new friends along the way. I love humor and love to laugh. Laughing and music my two favorite things in my world.
Yes. Welcome 😀
I will make my way into your heart... then slowly devour it. But don't let that scare you! I'm a super sweet PTA mom!! Native Pacific northwest gal here. I love my city! Im in sales and am a professional temporary body artist. (Face paint, body art and henna.) I love to create and I love people. I am an extrovert, I strike up conversations, I float around parties and talk with everyone. I'm headed back to school after 17 years of being a homemaker so I don't have *as much* free time but I still love to go out and have fun! I'm am 80s girl, love my new wave and talking about the good old days but I totally keep up and am still relevant, lol. Im am optimist; opposites don't attract me ;) I'm fairly liberal, I'm an artist. I'm also a girly girl, I wear heels all the time so I'm standing at 5'10" to 5'11" most days (5'6" barefoot) I've got curves, I'm the average size American woman. I'm funny and I flirt a lot. I sing at the store, I get down and talk with children, I love old people. I drink on occasion, go out dancing and just quit smoking for a second time (first time I quit for 11 years!) I'm told I look younger than my age and have a youthful spirit about me. Im not interested in long distance... I have two teenagers and am not willing to relocate. I need to touch people, the internet doesn't grant me this pleasure.
You look dreamy!
As per suggestions, +++++++++++++++++++ Is that positive enough for you? I would like to believe I am a realist, not a Pollyanna or a negative Nelly. But someone who sees what is real and calls it for what it is. Updated bio. Dating site woes. Been there, done that. Got the t-shirt. I am hoping to find a few like minded friends for companionship. I love the idea of love, the idea of a partner, the idea of waking up to hugs and coffee with someone. Spending time with another makes life a little easier. I saw a group was formed for singles without baggage. I don't really know what that means, we all have stuff. Some stuff other's can deal with, some stuff they can't. I would love to talk about your stuff. And mine with you. I am unafraid and willing to be vulnerable with just the right man. I enjoy hikes in the area, dinners out, coffee chats. Recently moved and have a new job, but I am open to possibilities and new experiences. I wonder if we have all been sold a story that love is just around the corner, or is just the right person we just haven't met thus far. I guess I am questioning many things. But I still want to find love, just want it to be natural and organic. Me: natural, intelligent, witty, very single, finding my place in life. I enjoy music, hiking, kayaking, gardens, dogs AND cats, good wine and food.
Both but have niether at this time. I guess I will get a 🐈 sometime in the future. They don't need much to be happy. I just don't have time or a place for a dog right now. I sure miss having pets.

I'm an artist by nature and trade, but I have a pretty good day job so I don't become a **starving** artist. And by "artist," I mean in many ways. I used to tattoo and pierce professionally, but currently my focus is on writing sci-fi/fantasy/horror/comedy/romance novels, sculpture, drawing, painting, 3D modeling and 3D printing, cosplay, props, costumes, creature fx makeup, martial arts, blacksmithing, and making music on my computer. I'm a trans woman/lesbian who is too old, poor, and scared of judgment and surgery to transition. I talk a lot, but I'm secretly an introvert. I am always trying to learn more about almost everything. I watch a lot of TV, movies, and YouTube videos. I curse like a sailor but try not to be vulgar, as I'm a bit prudish. I smoke weed and the occasional clove cigarette. I do not drink alcohol of any kind, and never have. Okay, that's about it. Thanks for reading! Message me if you want to know more!
I was working at Sears the time and a random redneck came in and began berating me for my nosering at first. It turned into a religiously based argument when he noticed I had tattoos and he brought up Leviticus. That's when I responded with, "Thank you for your judgement. I'm sure your god is proud of you for your hatred. Tell him I said 'hi' and 'I'm doing just fine without him'. Be sure to let me know what he says. You know where to find me. Buh-bye now." He didn't take the hint, so I ended up with him following me around and berating me as I did my job while ignoring him. Finally, he cornered me in the bathroom. With no witnesses, or cameras, I told him he was an idiot, a poor excuse for a human being, and a shameful example of his sincerely held beliefs. I also told him that if he followed me out of the bathroom, that I didn't care enough about my minimum wage part time-job to not make sure he left without a limp. Especially with a McDonald's, Wendy's, Burger King, Walmart, and Lowe's right across the street. He didn't follow me out of the bathroom.
I am new here and after I posted the information below I realized it might appear that I speak of myself in the third person! I do not! This was just a quick way to share a little about me from a recent local article! Currently with The American Red Cross! Jack Robinson, a retired deputy chief of emergency medical service for the Everett Fire Department, has been a Red Cross volunteer since 2006, but his interest in the organization began in his teens. As a Boy Scout, he was a Red Cross junior lifeguard. “The mission of the Red Cross is very consistent with my worldview,” he said. Last year, he spent more than 50 days in Puerto Rico after the Caribbean island was battered by hurricanes. He was involved in disaster assessment, often making his way into the mountains where roads were damaged and travel was slow. Many remote communities were hard to reach. On each outing, his team brought food and water. What the people often needed most was electricity and clean water. He felt best when he could give them water filters that would guarantee a long-term supply. He was buoyed by the spirit of the Puerto Rican people and struck by the beauty of the island, despite the widespread destruction. Robinson likes being on the front lines of relief efforts. “Most of the assignments I take are working with people directly affected by the event,” he said. “I always find that extremely rewarding.” Robinson has made friends along the way. While helping in Puerto Rico, he got to know volunteers from the South American nation of Columbia. He delayed his trip home at their invitation for a two-week stay in Bogota. He spent many days on his vacation with the Red Cross there, learning their best practices.
My personality type is ESTJ-A, which helps to explain why I have been so successful as a Project Manager. I have a master’s degree in Information Systems and Technology Management, specializing in Project Management (MISM) and work in an enterprise sized health-care company IS department. While working closely with people in health-care is not something that I would enjoy or feel I would be good at, I love that I get to make a difference in the capabilities of others to provide that care to those who need it. In my youth, I lived in a small, conservative, West Central Ohio town. I was raised in the Catholic faith, but there were always unanswered questions that never set well with me. In retrospect, the death of my father early in my youth is what kept me hanging onto the religious dogma as long as I did. Once logic and reason replaced the fantasy of religion, I was able to break free from the chains of religious influence introduced to me in my youth. While I wasn't likely to find many like-minded freethinkers living in small town America, now that I've moved to the city I'm hopeful that will change. I joined this website in an attempt to meet my significant other, but I have enjoyed the conversations outside of that pursuit. My ideal evening is a good meal and drinks shared with even better conversation. I enjoy politics and try to stay up on current events, but technology is my first love. Anything tech will spur my interest. So whether it is to learn about each other and potentially become something more, or just to have a good conversation and gain a new perspective on a topic, I look forward to meeting you in chat.
Does lifting 12oz curls count?
I'm going through a divorce and it stinks. I know that's not a surprising sentiment, but there it is. Even though I initiated the separation, it's still so difficult to up-end your life in pursuit of peace. We have one child, 9 years old. He is my top priority. My goal is to become a happier person, more truthful to myself and therefore better able to parent from a place of love and joy. I value my son's honesty, humor, and nerdliness, because generally speaking, those are the traits I most value in others. Working all the time to be more truthful, to be more able to find the humor in this increasingly frightening world, and to embrace my own nerdliness. I am a maker/artist. Sewing/knitting/embroidery/drawing/painting/baking/gardening/sculpting. I haven't met a craft I don't like, and I have a basement full of supplies to prove it. I also love to perform, but haven't done so in a very long time. Hoping that I can find the courage and motivation to get back to performing within a year. I've done water ballet (!) with a community performance group here in Baltimore, as well as a little bit of burlesque. In talks with a friend about putting together a sort of vaudeville act. I'll keep you posted. I confess to seeking a companion with whom to carry on long and rambling conversations about this, that, and the other thing. I'm not inclined to loneliness, or at least not usually. But there's something about going from living with a person, no matter how miserable that person makes you, to living alone that brings to the foreground a little bit of loneliness. I'm mostly okay with it, but do long for some quality conversation. I enjoy television. I think I'm maybe over-enjoying TV at the time, given the aforementioned loneliness. But damnit, there is so much good TV right now! Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency Harlots Penny Dreadful Bob's Burgers Lost in Space (I know these aren't all the newest latest, but they're what I'm loving right now) I like weed. I also like wine and whisky. The triple W. Moderation in all things, and best to enjoy with friends. But I resent being told by anyone that I'm too old for weed. If it's good enough for Willy, it's good enough for me. Speaking of Willy Nelson, I have a pretty varied taste in music. Recently found a 1956 album by Harry Belafonte, "Calypso!", that's rocking my world. Jack White (any of his projects, but most especially The White Stripes), Kurt Vile, Courtney Barnett, Eartha Kitt, Talking Heads, Bill Withers, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Olu Dara, Prince, Stevie Wonder, They Might be Giants, Led Zeppelin, et cetera. Having a 9-year-old son is also reintroducing me to the joy of Weird Al Yankovic. Joy! Regarding sex, I can dig it. It's not a big priority for me, however. I love the city. I love the country. I would like to travel more. I've been to Thailand and Mexico and Canada and Belize and Costa Rica. The Netherlands is high on my list, as I'd love to see Amsterdam. Iceland is also very high on my list. Must see the aurora borealis. I saw a brief little bit of in when I lived in Spokane, Washington, and it was like magic. I'd really love to be way up north and get a good eyeful. That's me in a nutshell. Who are you?
I really wrote pickle, didn't I? Haw! Also, oops! Bet you can't guess what I'm planning for my cute little cucumber bundle of joy! How embarrassing. Thanks for being gentle. 😊
Who am I? I have been an educator for over 20 years. I have been practicing yoga since 1997. I recently renewed my yoga teacher certificate. I am not gumby, but I'm pretty flexible for my age. I love classic rock, smooth jazz, and live music. I like to dance. I've been teaching myself to play the ukulele. I have four small tattoos, a one on my back, and a medium one that I am in the process of having removed. So if you don't like tattoos, you may want pass me by. I haven't traveled much, but I want to change that in the near future.
I am me, and i am getting old and grumpy!
Wow what a story, i remember as a child and young man tacoma was always a very bad place to live, but spokane is way worse now, grew up here in spokane, our whole city is turned into a pile of you know what. anyways, I am a diabetic myself, server nephropathy in feet and legs, i have tried the vegan diets only to make my sugars even more worse.

I stick to my guns pretty strongly, but if I'm presented with verifiable and undisputed facts, I would relent and accept. However, I think that this is not an exclusive trait of atheists alone
All I drink is coffee and sunshine! Consume books and vegetables. I can cook & love bake. Love lift heavy things, and put them down... But I won't ever put you down ;) Dark humor, bad puns and sharp satire win me over. I definitley don't believe in a soul or afterlife, nor any god Yet have strong beliefs and values; I recently joined The Satanic Temple and feel very at home with their values -- feel free ask me about it or look them up, they aren't hard find. I am poly and have a wonderful partner of 5 years - seeking possible partners, fwb or just something fun.
