I am a creative individual with dreams and the drive to realize them. I graduated Harvard in 05 with a degree in Folklore and Mythology. I focused on Old Norse and wrote my thesis about Beowulf. I do a lot of freelance work in Financial News lately, but as part of the new media space. It's amazing how much storytelling as a field of study is the same or at least cross applicable, across so many kinds of media.
I've come, over the past 4 years and change to really embrace polyamory. There are currently two people, neither of whom is local right now, with whom I consider myself in a relationship. If you want to have a more than casual connection with me, you need to be okay with, or at least be willing to try formalized nonmonogamous arrangements.
My primary partnership has just become long distance, but the hope is we'll be together again by Summer 2014. I'm not looking for a new primary so this restricts to some extent the directions I'm open to having a romantic relationship evolve, but I do have a fair amount of practical availability for a local partner, and I would Ideally like someone local with an emotional component, but that would have to evolve out of the right combination of friendship and fun.
I never was tremendously social in high school or before, but now, I'm known for throwing legendary weekend long parties, once or twice a year, and other less extravagant gatherings that still leave people thoroughly entertained.
I am attentive, considerate, and witty.
I recently had a conversation wherein I asserted that it would be better in general if people put their flaws out there more prominently in online dating. So, one of mine: When someone is telling me about an upset in their life, I cannot always tease out when blanket emotional support is going to be more helpful than stepping back from a situation and discussing potential solutions. I am good at providing support when it's clear that it is what is needed, but the fact that I'm extremely solution oriented, tending try to fix a problem before offering a response mostly about emotional support sometimes ends up making me look less compassionate/passionate than I am and feel internally.
