Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm functionally poly/nonmonogamous at the moment with a
mutually-non-primary East Coast partner and a kink "play partner"
here and there. I'm interested in finding a compatible partner for
a primary long-term relationship, but I'm open to great dates, too.
Definite preference for people who are open to connecting on a
deeper level, affection, and all that jazz, should things lean that
I've recently been described as tenacious and diligent, and I would
not disagree. I work hard, have endured many trials over the last
two years working my ass off to survive independently in SF, and
now I'm seeking companion(s) to add more fun and spontaneity back
to my downtime.
I don't Instagram because not everything looks right in square. I
did just upload a bunch of other photos that make me happy, though.
But then I realized that I have wayy too many.. where should I
I carry $2 in quarters at all times in case of a pinball emergency,
and visiting new-to-me National Parks probably excited me more than
it does you.
In progress. I'll add things as they come to me..
I have a very lengthy autobiography of a profile here that has
existed for many years, but I thought I'd try something new, so
this one is a little more raw..
85% of the time I am highly analytical, 15% I'm completely
Nature is my religion.
Honesty, integrity, and not being an asshole are my morals.
I like people who are introspective.
Artfully posing nude on driftwood is one of my all-time favorite
activities (mostly retired).
I like horror films [and other genres, but horror is the one that
most people don't share]..
I am 4 parts mountains, 3 parts beach, and 1 part huddled under a
heavy pile of soft blankets.
I like to use handmade [wheel-thrown ceramic] dishware and
hand-blown drinking glasses. Preferably those made by my own hands
(though I'd imagine gifted pieces from loved ones would be pretty
I need intense experiences on a regular basis to keep me level/calm

endless waves or staring into the distance from a scenic
mountaintop, or stimulating and challenging activities through
I just returned from a spontaneous 19-day, 8300+-mile, solo looping
cross-country road trip.
From a small town deep in central Appalachia, I moved around a bit
in adulthood- Pittsburgh<3 - more than once, Florida (Tampa),
and Baltimore before my adventures in SF..
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping to raise two infants into awesome little people
(professional full-time nanny), pondering school debt vs degree
value, studying psychology, itching to make art
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Finishing books require an attention span I haven't been able to
wrangle in a while, but I like nonfiction on topics not limited to:
nonmonogamy, sideshow/circus history, and food, and I'm taking
fiction recommendations (but keep in mind the fact that the last
fiction I finished was either Wicked or something by Chuck
Palahniuk and not recently).
As the holder of a pay-per-month unlimited movie pass card thing,
I'll see pretty much anything that looks not awful, because it's
nice to put everything down for a couple of hours. I like
psychological thrillers, dark and/or smart comedies, some dramas,
and I like good horror but can't ever find horror-watching
Broad City, Orange Is the New Black,
I listen to a lot of indie rock, and I've been on a metal kick this
week. Lately: Avett Brothers, The National. As a former
choir/musical theatre geek prone to fits of karaoke, I also listen
to a pretty wide variety of anything that makes me want to sing or
might elicit dancing.
I love food and am sad to currently be so restricted in my options.
The Whole Foods prepared foods are my best friend right now, as I
am gluten free, dairy free, and also trying to avoid eating
non-organic meat and non-organic soy products. Avocado, dark
chocolate, and scotch are all things I love.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Queer, kink, sexism, environmentalism, killing my Facebook account
and running away to the woods, daydreaming about making a huge road
trip through North and South America or hiking the Appalachian
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At the Citadel, Harbin, a couch (Netflix/Hulu/HBO GO), a wine bar,
a scotch bar, or other..
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I pretty reliably have nightmares if the room I'm sleeping in is
Also, ASD/AS. This is highly relevant and informative but also
highly stigmatized and misunderstood...
