For now, I'll start with the quick big ticket labels.
I'm a nerdy progressive liberal Atheist, feminist, and freethinker as well as a fan of anime, science fiction, fantasy, and the Oxford comma. I hate gender roles and if you're not LGBTQ friendly, I'm not YOU friendly. I may be straight but I am hardly masculine. So if you're looking for MAN™ then keep looking. If you read all of that and thought "well that actually sounds pretty awesome and/or acceptable" then we'll probably get along great. Now, I get along with literally everyone, however, if your first thought was "YUCK" to any of the above, then I hate to break it to you but we will probably never be BFFs.
Now for what I'm looking to get out of this site. Firstly, I could always use more friends. I do want more than that, but I'm not going to put the burden of being THE ONE on, or immediately dive into the bed of, someone I've just met. Some would say that this puts me in risk of landing in the friend-zone, but I say it's the only sane way to go about this. I don't believe in the friend-zone anyway (attraction to a person does not confer a right to that person).
