In short I'm not going to be monogamous for you just cause you want me to, because I'm doing what's right for me and if it's not right for you than we're not right for each other. Also, be advised that if you don't mention anything about your experience with polyamory in your message or profile I will likely assume you did not pay attention to the fact that I am poly and are either assuming I am monogamous, or don't give a damn either way and just want sex and thus didn't bother to read anything on my profile. (If you just read that you clearly got through the first paragraph, so have a cookie! Apologies for being rather wordy, but I have an idea of the situation I want so I'd like to be sure it's what you want too, so bear with me and read on, fellow traveler.)
I'm a pretty shy person, around strangers anyways. I love the outdoors and nature. I adore animals and they tend to fill my thoughts and conversations frequently. I like mismatched dinnerware, cooking, fire, gardening, urban exploring, and lots of random stuff. I'm a introvert exploring the horrifying, grand world of extroversion. I live with my dog, my cat, my African Fat-tail gecko, my tarantula, and my SO's rat. I am an Independent, but while I may shake my head at articles and follow issues I feel strongly about, I'm a quiet person who likes to put things together out loud so I don't often enjoy discussing things of a political nature. I'm put off by people who are knee-jerk (or rabid) liberals or conservatives, if you're agreeing with something solely because of where it falls on a party line I'm not interested in talking to you about that subject. More so if you can't have a civil conversation about the matter with someone who doesn't agree with you and walk away satisfied that you learned their perspective, not huffy they didn't fold into agreeing with your own. I'm very much prejudiced against people who bear unfounded prejudices, but I'm not obsessed with being PC. I am an atheist, but not a rigidly scientific one, I believe in things other than god with something of a non-deity pagan bend. Though I do love me some science. I am a polyamorous, vaguely geeky, quiet creature, all in all.
