Let's get started. I'm yet another of the apparently infinite influx of people migrating here from the less-awesome parts of the world, in this case from the Midwest because cornfields and political corruption quickly lose their novelty when you're not in control of either. I've been here for about a year and a half, and I don't know many more people than I did before I got here. I'm here hoping to change that, hopefully with a combination of dazzling personality, terrible puns and wordplay, and award-winning levels of modesty.
I won't say I'm here looking for a commitment per se, but I want to have interesting and mutually-rewarding relationships of varying duration and levels of intimacy - I'll never turn down new friends, but the less platonic, the better. So, basically, open relationships are my default preference for the foreseeable future. I want something that can either be defined as "casually serious" or "seriously casual." I don't care for meetups or hookups that only last the one night/weekend, though.
I have a nice little conga line of -ists that define my social identity, because I find labels provide and refine detail rather than restrict it, as well as demand a certain level of internal honesty and consistency. So, in no particular order, I'm an anarchist, socialist, atheist, feminist, secular humanist, polyamorist, technologist, and aspiring roboticist. I'm a casual PC gamer too, but that doesn't end with -ist so it's hard to put it in there.
I consider myself a student of life, and most of my side projects are ongoing challenges to my comfort zone and worldviews more than particular milestones. Currently experimenting with ethical non-monogamy, 420, and figuring out where I am on the kink spectrum. Anyone want to help me learn more about any of this?
