"Am I a deeply, intensely interesting person with a firey passion for movement, dance or circus arts, an extroverted personality, an enthusiasm for conversational sparring and an nigh-inexhaustible appetite for adventures of the traveling variety?"
Next, consider whether you're just messaging me to comment on my flexibility. Consider whether a contortionist has likely heard this comment before. Briefly imagine how bored they might be with this line of conversation if it's not coming from another circus artist.
Are you about to say something about astrology? Stop. The person you are considering messaging is Not Woo. They are not from the West Coast. They appreciate your religious practices with skepticism, and from a distance.
Are you kinky? Poly? Not-straight? Good for you. I don't much care unless you're actively critiquing your communities and considering ways they could be more intersectional from a class/race/ableism perspective. If you understood the above sentence and are thinking "Yes! Yes that!", I want to get a beer with you and talk about how fucked up the BDSM scene is.
If you saw "poly" and thought "My girlfriend and I....", stop. Why all the endless couples looking for a single, unattached, female third for their triad haven't just all connected with each other to create a large pool of female "thirds"who could go triad up as much as everyone pleases while their male partners go have bonding sessions over boning two girls at once is a mystery to me.
If you've actually made it through this text block, believe yourself to fit the descriptor in the initial paragraph, can sidestep all the following caveats outlined, and still want to message me, go ahead. I'll be pleasantly surprised if we don't already know each other.
