I've been seriously dating circus arts for the past three years, and all other relationships will likely come second. I pour more blood, sweat, time, love and energy into my trapeze than most humans.
The humans I DO give my time, love and energy to tend to be equally obsessed with movement arts as I am, whether its circus, dance, martial arts or just moving through the world with conscious physical intention.
I prefer other extroverts- anyone who feels natural in front of an audience, can produce clever lies for the sake of storytelling, or easily draws the focus of a crowd of strangers. Also, I've found that they tend to make far better dates than people who nervously stumble over their lack of conversational prowess the whole time.
If you can keep up with me and spar conversationally, I'm going to like you a great deal. If you can't, I'm going to get very bored very quickly.
Bland profiles touting your "randomness" or interest in "adventures" will be disregarded. (The least-adventurous seeming people seem to always include these elements in their profiles, for some reason).
I like other travelers- I've thus far lived in ten states, five major cities, and three countries, but somehow Portland has grown on me. I'm originally from the East Coast, and have very little tolerance for astrology, and a deep appreciation for sarcasm.
I also like people who think too much, about too many things, in too much detail. I like long conversations about the invisible aspects of life that too few people see. I like sharing beers over episodes of Dr. Who. I like dates that start in the evening, go long into the night, and last into a lazy morning together.
I can be unbelievably charming to people I find attractive. Consider that a fair warning.
I'm queer, and uninterested in straight people.
I'm "poly", although I really dislike the word and connotations and prefer an anarchic, non-hierarchical relationship model. I'm generally less interested in people who're already in primary serious relationships (and I'm completely uninterested in dating couples), but I'd consider it for the right person. The odds that I'll go out with you if you're married (even if you're poly! kinky! queer!) are infinitesimally low. The odds that I'd want to sleep with your female partner if you're a guy are laughable- I can find my own girlfriends, and they usually aren't interested in men.
I'm kinky, and uninterested in the fucked up mess that is the BDSM scene. (I am interested in tying people down in my bedroom to any of my numerous hardpoints, though. And having conversations about why the BDSM scene is a fucking mess. Hint: if your scene reproduces dominant paradigms of what's attractive and desirable while claiming to be alternative, y'all's doing it wrong.)
I'm radical, and uninterested in people who haven't given some serious consideration and critique to systems of power and oppression.
