OKC says that I may be "more cool" than the average user, but I'm pretty sure this is not actually true.
I'm hoping to meet good-hearted, well-mannered, politically progressive people--male, female, or in between--in the Boston area. Graduate school and part-time jobs are taking up a lot of my time and energy right now, but I'm still interested in finding local dates and play partners--maybe even a boyfriend or girlfriend, if things work out that way.
The older I get, the more I believe in emphasizing the "friends" in "friends with benefits." I don't think sex has to be romantic (though it can be), but I try only to sleep with people I genuinely like. Also, if you're attached, honesty and the cheerful consent of all parties are essential: I'm not interested in sneaking around.
I'm open to a range of dating possibilities, from a potentially serious (but nonmonogamous) romantic relationship to a more casual, friendly involvement. Either way, though, I hope that if you write to me, you're thinking of me as an actual human being you might want to have a conversation with. Until recently, I included "casual sex" among the things I was looking for, but the creepy one-line responses from random straight guys started making me feel tired and sad.
