Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
If these words interest you, read on...
I dropped out young, and then dropped back in and ended up in a PhD
program. Academia had me in its grip, but after a few years it
became clear to me that happiness lay elsewhere. I travel often, to
places both exotic and mundane.
Right now, I'm immersed in a life of quiet, happy debauchery. I
laugh at people who think "queer" is an insult... I am probably too
in love with ellipses. I've long since stopped writing poetry, but
even though my pen has been replaced by the sterile keyboard, I
still feel like a poet in my heart...
Be bold and write me.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Through talent, a lot of hard work, (privilege,) and some lucky
breaks, I am making a life out of my joys instead of grinding it
out at a shitty day job. I get to have fun with some wonderful
friends between trying to hit my deadlines for editing and writing
geeky articles, getting game publishers to give me the information
I need, and getting the details down in all manner of promotion and
consulting. Also, there is booze
and other sinning...
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Ideas; real conversation about nearly anything; grappling with and
connecting with people; putting words
together nice; and speaking of nice:
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Good lord. Why not just ask me about which organs are my favorites?
(Though, to be fair, Shortbus
manages to embody parts of my
version of utopia...)
tells me that my most listened to music of
this year is, in order:
Screamin' Cyn Cyn
and the Pons
(... probably subject to change frequently)
See movies, above.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Those I love, a wonderful home, my wits, the tools of my trade,
challenges, and passion and intimacy...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
. Queer theory
Other random thoughts:
I travel a lot. Sometimes when I'm traveling I find myself
wondering what the hell I'd do if a zombie apocalypse broke out at
that very moment. I think if it happened when I was home I might
survive that first wave, but out in the unknown, could I make it
without really knowing the lay of the land?
Which states are a part of 'the Midwest'?
What does "Short-term dating" mean to people?
What is the nature of demi-fame?
Why isn't there enough time for everything I wish I could do?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
On the road in some random city... Lazing in bed with good food and
a movie... At a show letting the music hit me...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
- People keep telling me I'd make a great Companion (a la Inara); I
take that as an incredible compliment.
- I met my dear friend wildenights
on OkC, so I have high
expectations of just how good a connection is possible here.
- I use the profile name 'HedonistPoet' on things like FL and AIM
[Pro tip: This section of your profile is giving you an
opportunity to let us know who you are. It is not
asking what your most private thing
is, but, rather the
most private thing you are "willing to
admit". If that is simply that you love spaghetti, so be it (but I
bet you can go deeper than that).]
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
An incomplete checklist for the organized types - not all need
* You view yourself as a stand-out
* You are queer
-identified (or understand what that
* You have an excellent grasp of social rules so that when you
break them, it is with a purpose
* You are smart and can be challenging without being
* You like to reward yourself with little treats
* You know that something fun and casual can also be rich and
* You rock
Or, in other words:
strong guts, warm heart, bright eyes, sharp mind, hot
breath... hopefully, all in the same package, though others may
