There are a lot of words in this thing, but it's okay, just take it one paragraph at a time and we'll get through it together. Or you'll move on. Either way, I'm cool if you're cool.
Firstly: I'm seeing somebody. It's a long distance thing, she's married and poly, I'm single-ish and undeclared. I like her a lot, we're eerily similar and complementarily diabolical. She is on OKCupid, but it'd be weird for me (and likely her) to link her profile. The best evidence I can present that it's not a skeezy uptrading or cheating situation is that I'm mentioning her at all. And that's that. Questions are welcome.
I've resisted giving a self-summary, but an outside appraisal of my Personality section may lead visitors to believe I am (in relation to other OKCupidites) an amoral, horndog prick.
Such an impression may be true, but would be unleavened by other, finer qualities, such as my humor and openness; also, I can spell words and donate generously to the humane society. Okay, that last bit was a lie, but I do like animals.
Some days, I feel like I'm defined by the people around me. Like I'm a blank space whose borders become tangible only upon contact with other persons. How much I like or loathe them; which tasks are forced upon me by contact with them; they blink and my past is fixed and another frame of me begins. Other days, I am the pure sophist, my mind refusing to countenance the existence of beings outside its scope of self-reflection. Most days, though, I spectate.
To thine own self be summarized.
