Polyamorous.
I don't cheat when it comes to committed relationships, and I'm not willing to engage with those who do.

Attracted by intelligence, androgyny, humor, open minds and big hearts, affection, personal integrity, creativity, self-awareness, and hedonism, not necessarily in that order.

I'd rather be approached than do the approaching, it just seems to work out better that way.

Like all redheads, I am descended from felines rather than primates (according to Mark Twain.) If you don't like cats and they don't like you, our chances of a mutually satisfying relationship are lower than otherwise, but not necessarily insurmountable.

If you are attracted by the unusual, aren't fazed by physical and sometimes emotional challenges, know the difference between faze and phase, (and use both correctly) think for yourself, and are willing to work a little to get to the good parts, the odds improve considerably.
What I’m doing with my life
Experiencing wonder and awe. Developing friendships. Creating meaningful memories. Other stuff that sounds all lofty and ideal when it's verbalized, but is really just an ongoing slog through the daily mud.
I’m really good at
Communication. Creating elegant solutions. Getting stuff done, even when it's really hard. Research, proofreading, entertaining children, compassionate listening, making weird faces, and assorted handcrafts. Emotional support. Over thinking things. Writing sentences that don't include verbs.
The first things people usually notice about me
Depends on the people; everyone notices what's important to them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: The list is close to endless. Lots of science and science fiction, but also historical fiction, fantasy fiction, non-fiction, biographies, fairy tales, cautionary tales, tales of dystopian worlds, cookbooks, encyclopedias, dictionaries--

Movies:
Serenity, The Life of Pi, Undead or Alive. The rest are subject to change without notice.

Music:
Eclectic and mood dependent. I never seem to get tired of Leonard Cohen, woodwinds, minor chords, or Prokofiev.

Food:
Well prepared, beautifully presented complex meals, Greek yogurt with cheerios, and lots of stuff in between. Flavorful but not too spicy, please.
The six things I could never do without
Words in a row, a smartphone (well I could, but I'd really rather not), asthma medicine, humor, and optical correction. Oh, and love. Can't forget that.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What if...?
Why not...?
What did I learn?
What can I teach?
What's my "next right thing?"
Patterns. All kinds.
How to get from point A to point B.
Am I EVER going to be able to shut off my brain and get to sleep?
On a typical Friday night I am
There is no such thing as "typical," but I'd rather be with friends and/or lovers, doing whatever is mutually interesting and enjoyable, than not.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I agreed to Chair a local science fiction convention, that will be held in September of 2014. Want to volunteer to help?
I’m looking for
  • Everybody
  • Ages 18–99
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
I sound appealing to you. I don't bite; unless I feel like it when asked politely. It may take me a while to write back; but I probably will, eventually. (See "what I'm doing with my life," and "I spend a lot of time thinking about." That stuff gets in the way.)
