Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My profile says I don't message back often. This is true, but
mostly because I get an astounding amount of messages saying
nothing but "what's up" or "why haven't we had sex yet."
If you dig me, let me know.
I'm not very into playing hard to get.
If we have over a 80% match, chances are you should message
If you're into not being a bad person and checking your privilege
you should probably message me.
If you're a stand up comedian probably don't message me.
Poly identified, but currently partnered and not particularly
looking, open to surprises though.
About me: A bit of a difficult thing to say. I suppose I'm what the
stereotype would call alternative or quirky.
I consume and criticize pop culture, go to not enough poetry slams,
blog a bit, write a bit, read zines and get emotional over concepts
like "productive tension" and "radical vulnerability". I study
science and global health and equity.
I think that quirky is a rather dull class though, don't you?
Anyone who can be so easily summed up is probably boring, and I
like to think I am not boring.
For the sake of the Internet however, and for the sake of
communicating the complexity of a person via the page:
I like to phrase it like this: I like a lot of things and get nerdy
about a lot of things. I get passionate.
I am always in the active process of decolonizing my mind and
breaking free of societal structures and biases I have. Let me know
if I upset or offend you.
Queer is a better word than bisexual for me.
I'm currently focusing on two of my passions, studying the human
mind and process, both as a human biology and psychology student,
and as an endless observer and listener. And education, in helping
run a sex ed centre.
When I grow up I want to do public health outreach, focusing on
mental health or sex ed.
I'm a strong personality. I make myself known, and I'll converse
with you and do a bit of debating. I like hearing opinions and
having my mind changed. I will call your bluffs and catch your shit
and be a bit of a brat, know its for the sake of learning, both
about the topic and about you.
There's not much I like more than learning a new person.
I like educating and learning and being told new things and being
I like listening to slam poetry that makes me want to destroy
everything I've ever written.
I like to write everything I've ever destroyed.
I like walking around the city and feeling that buzz of
I'm a work in progress.
I gave up a long time ago on being aloof.
The main thing is I try not to take myself too seriously. I can be
very silly and that's important to me.
I love thinking about how people work and I love stories and
factoids more than I love history. I love clothes that you can feel
the owner on and abandoned journals and old pictures.
I like abandoned buildings and full bars and anything and
everything that screams it's personality.
