What else can I add? I joined Care2 because I wanted to know there are likeminded souls out there, somewhere. I'm a reclusive feminist.
I'm a quiet, bookish type who would be a placard waving activist if I could only leave the house. I'm a manic depressive, I have M.E/CFS. I'm a hyperactive insomniac.I never grew out of being a tomboy. Some days I wear skirts, most days they make me feel like I'm in drag. I'm a Sagittarian Fire Snake. I always read my horoscopes before disregarding them as nonsense. I'm a sentimental romantic and cynical enough to be slightly embarrassed by that. I'm afraid of people. I'm fascinated by people. The more eccentric you are the more you'll interest me. I'm a lifelong feminist. I can't understand minority groups attacking each other rather than combining their strengths. I have a constant thirst for knowledge. I'm a bundle of contradicting thoughts and emotions. Who I am really depends on the season and the ebb and flow of my moods.
I don't collect friends for the sake of it. I'll only add you if it looks like we have something in common. If you're aggressive, bigoted, insensitive, lacking in empathy or only communicate in text speak and abbreviations I will run a mile. And if you're a man looking for more than friendship there's no point adding me because I'm not interested.
Anyone who sends me rambly, handwritten letters about life, love, the world and the complexities of being human wins my heart very quickly.
