want to be your friend for life. I love dad jokes. Sarcasm is also

I am a feminist of the intersectional variety who cares a great
deal about social issues. If any of that invokes any negative

I am polyamorous and find having multiple brilliant people in my
life to inspire me helps keep my cup full. I love love. Polyamory
(from Greek πολύ [poly], meaning "many" or "several", and Latin
amor, "love") is the practice, desire, or acceptance of having more
than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and
consent of everyone involved.
Intimate relationships are more than sex. Please don't ask me to
hook up unless your idea of hooking up is forming a deep personal
connection with a friend that you also sometimes sex.
