My self-summary
You do genuine polyamory a disservice by thinking it's a "secret" you can spring on someone on your second or third date. (And then throw up your hands and call her closed-minded when she says that's just not her orientation.) Don't be that guy.

Let me just take a big breath and blurt all this out there. Trying to give a good snapshot.

I am a long-divorced skeptical-atheist-agnostic with no kids. I am routinely estimated to be 10 years younger than I am. I am either the middle child, the youngest, the oldest, or an only child, depending on how you're looking at my family. I've lived in metro-Detroit my whole life, but have no intention of dying here.

I have enjoyed the Amazing Meeting, CSICon, the Mensa Annual Gathering (I'm not a member), the World Steampunk Convention, American Atheists National Convention, Detroit Anime con, ScareFest, the American Sewing Expo, and other even more unrelated conventions. (I love gatherings of like-minded people, even if I'm not of their mind.) I have spent the night in Lizzie Borden's bedroom and in the upper gallery of the Mutter Museum. I write for a local arts and culture blog and see 40+ art/music/performance shows a year. On the other hand, I've also been known to come home Friday and not leave again until Monday morning.

I sew/craft/make, and feel best when wearing something I've made. I made a genuine, but futile, effort at learning the accordion. I watch debates for fun. I wrote my own version of Poe's "Annabel Lee," also just for fun.

Even mediocre improv will make me laugh myself silly, and there's nothing funnier to me than good standup. Except maybe chickens. Chickens crack me up.

BOOM.

PS
If you email me any variation of "hi how are you" I'll know you didn't read my profile, and I'm not going to respond to you. I know it's long; that's partially the point. If there isn't ONE thing in here you can specifically respond to, there is no hope for us.
What I’m doing with my life
I've been in the same career for 25 years -- since I was actually a teenager -- and last year was laid off from the position I'd had for 10 years. Rather than rush back into exactly the same job at a different desk, I took some time to recoup, kickback, and daydream about what my next career may be.

...still don't know. :)

But in the meantime, I am working consulting jobs in my field of expertise, which is graphic design/art production, and a little retail at one of my favorite stores. But if you're looking to hire a smart, talented woman with no travel restrictions, I may just be your huckleberry.
I’m really good at
Laughing really hard, much to people's surprise. (People tend to think I'm quite serious.)
The first things people usually notice about me
The piercing intensity of my gaze. Wait, I can be even worse than that. The world-weariness of my affect, interrupted by my tiny, child-like grin. Seriously, I don't know, probably my green eyes. And big hooters.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I think this is first-date conversational material, don't you? I prefer documentaries to fiction, and listen to a load of podcasts (mostly science/skepticism/comedy) when I'm not listening to Pandora. Happy to swap stations. :)
The six things I could never do without
Just give me six good learning opportunities.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to understand people, and how to help people understand me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I just started wearing glasses, but it seems like I should have been wearing them forever. Also, I have a bones-deep prejudice against long-haired men.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like girls
  • Ages 25–51
  • Located anywhere
  • Who are single
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
If you'd like to chat, don't just skirt around the edges, send an email. None of this stalky stuff!
PS -Everyone- hates it when your first message is "hi." Everyone.
