I'm hoping to meet good-hearted, well-mannered, politically progressive people--male, female, or in between--in the Boston area. I'm in a delightful and increasingly serious relationship, but I'm still open to meeting potential dates, play partners, and friends. I'm also potentially open to serious, committed relationships, but only with people who are genuinely comfortable with polyamory.
I can't find a way to say this that doesn't sound rude, but I want to be really clear: You need to be a feminist to date me, even casually. You also need to be somewhat aware of issues around race, class, sexuality, and gender identity. I don't mean that you have to be an activist; just try not to be a jerk around systems of power.
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.
