Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I’m a “solo poly” woman by identity, but currently in a
relationship that is a priority for me. I’m keeping this profile
active because I am polyamorous; but I’m not actively looking for
new partners right now, other than, possibly, very casual partners.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I’m the single parent of two teens who are rapidly becoming
independent. I work full-time, have a long commute, I guard a few
evenings a month for my serious partner; so I try to squeeze a
social life into the limited hours that are left.
But despite that, I enjoy meeting new people, whether as lovers or
friends. I’m not a fan of drama, and so I tend to like low-key and
relaxed people who are simply looking for companionship and
conversation as opposed to a traditional commitment. I identify as
bisexual, and I am interested in trans people (both women and men).
I also tend to prefer bisexual men to straight men. I am
potentially interested in participating in occasional threesome,
foursome or group situations, on my own or with my partner; but I
am very selective – not so much about looks, but rather with
respect to compatible personalities and maturity.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Making others feel comfortable. Empathy. Writing. Remembering song
lyrics. Solo travel. Crisis management. Nurturance. Achieving
contentment regardless of circumstances.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I smile at strangers. If a person is scanning a crowd to decide
whom to ask for help or directions, they choose me, every time.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't watch TV (except sports). I'm a slow but attentive reader.
I like John Irving, Barbara Gowdy, Bill Gaston, A. M. Homes, and
many others. I love war movies (but don't love war) and sports
movies. I enjoy live theatre, don't go as often as I'd like. I love
live music and struggle to fit it into my life (shows start so
late! I have to get up very early for work). I love many genres,
but especially blues, bluegrass, funk, and punk. I have a new
African drum that I can never find time to learn to play. Love
community drum circles. I am learning to sail these days, and
loving that too.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine, music, books, football, sand between my toes. Beers on
the deck. Campfires and fireplaces (and i don't have one). Whiskey.
Really good quality bedsheets. The awful/brilliant things my
teenage sons say. Okay, more than six.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Wondering what other people's inner lives are like, and what their
joys and regrets are. Sex. Food. Music. Travel.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Tired from the week... wishing I had planned ahead so that I had
better plans...planning for Saturday night...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I used to be a competitive cheerleader. Yeah, really. I am as
upbeat and as flexible as you'd think, based on that revelation,
but hopefully not as vapid.
