My self-summary
"Don't take yourself too seriously. You're not foolin' anyone."

UPFRONT
Although I have always connected with women more often on a romantic level, I am open to all genders/orientations/trans/etc. My attraction to someone is based on their hearts (and, admittedly, how much of a top they are) as opposed to their physical body.

Fair warning: One of my biggest turnoff's is txtype.

Me in a nutshell:
Homoflexible, genderfuild yet hard femme, kink-loving, sex positive, hard-working, non-smoking, active, open, introverted, walking contradiction... and I have a love/hate relationship with labels.
Yep. I think that about sums me up, but here are the details...

I'm curious
I love to learn and discover. Even though I long to be somewhat of a housewife, I could never do that 24/7. I would have to volunteer, have a job/career, or something in the real world. I need to contribute to and be a part of the world.

I'm accepting
I am openly and strongly against any kind of bigotry, especially transphobia and biphobia.

I'm poly-minded
What does that mean? I'm not anti-monogamy but I'm comfortable with open relationships/poly. I am a quality over quantity person. If I ended up in a monogamous relationship with a wonderful gal, great! If we decided to open it up with others, that's great too! As cheesy as it sounds, I believe that love is love and the form it comes in isn't always what we expect or predicted it to be.

I'm a family person
I want my own family, in good time. I love kids and want to become a mother to at least 2 with a loving companion beside me.

I'm an s-type
There we go. It's out there. I go to fun "parties" every weekend with great friends. I'm usually tied up or getting spanked. Oh yeah, I prefer to be an s-type more than anything. Too much? I'm not your girl then. Don't know what SSC or RACK means? Still not your girl.

I am girly
Although I have myself down as 'genderfluid' I'm almost always very feminine. My switch comes from the difference between a femmey-gay boy vs. typical girly-girl. As cliche as it may sound, I love being "the girl" in the relationship.

I love adventure
This could mean a road trip or learning about another person's lifestyle or reading a new genre of books or anything. Life is meant to be explored and I am a curious person.

I am open
I am all about open-communication, giving and receiving. I think talking about our emotions, processing them with a partner in a healthy, loving and kind manner is the best! I used to date people who didn't want labels or expectations, although I am all about letting a relationship develop naturally, I think having clear expectations for all partners is essential for healthy relationships. Not everyone will agree and that's okay. I am not interested in playing the 'my way is better' game. People are unique in how things are approached, I am just looking for someone(s) uniqueness that is compatible with mine.

In short, if you are unable to be open emotionally in a healthy, loving manner (aka, non-blaming and non-dumping) then we won't work out as a romantic relationship.

I'm a quality over quantity gal.
I love my friends and prefer quality over quantity by all means. This is same with a relationship. I don't settle nor compromise myself in that area, but that doesn't mean I'm unreasonable or shut off either.
What I’m doing with my life
Going to school full-time while working full-time, but I also make time for play.
I’m really good at
Making pizza... from scratch.
The first things people usually notice about me
How tiny and fierce I am... Like a puppeh!

I'm also really bad at doing the awkward first time meeting questions, I'd rather get down to the real deal.

Food
I have found that my tolerance for spicy has gone up. So I am loving indian food and fajita's these days. I am NOT a fast-food person unless if it is a dire emergency, even then, I will go Subway style; never BK or Mc's style.

I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
A "typical" Friday night? That exists!?

With friends dancing the night away

Seeing a movie

Having me time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once dated someone who was twice my age.

I miss when myspace was in for only one reason: Playing music on your profile. Made my life feel like a movie!

I guess that's more than one thing, isn't it?
You should message me if
You know the difference between 'dating' and 'non-monogamy.'

You are open.

You are poly-minded or at least open-minded.

You radiate confidence while leaving arrogance at the door.

You don't pick out what's wrong with your body. Love yourself!

You know what FL means... and it's *not* Florida.
