I've decided that I'd like to date more, get out a little more often. I'm what one of my friends calls "morally casual but picky." Heavy emphasis on the "picky" which a lot of people mistake for being aloof or stand-offish. The truth is that I'm actually rather shy in new social situations and I'm not really happy in crowds or other places with lots of noisy and wild energies. Get me alone though and I'll open up pretty fast!
So, here I am, wanting to date a little bit more but being the shy quiet type. Add in the fact that I am involved in open and/or polyamorous relationships and dating can be rather ... complicated. (In the interest of saving a bit if time, I am currently involved with a wonderful man who's profile link appears a bit farther down the page. You don't have to date him but we do live together so he'll be around.) I also, apparently, need to be a bit more clear. I am not now, nor am I going to become interested in being, the "other woman," the mistress [that's little "m" not big "M"], or a piece on the side. I engage in open and honest relationships and ALL my partners are aware of each other and hopefully on friendly enough terms we can all spend time together (yes both in and out of the bedroom if all parties are mutually agreeable.) If you are looking for a "discreet relationship" that your wife, girlfriend, partner, significant other, etc does not know about I am not the droid you are looking for so to speak.
Right now I've found myself missing girls more than men which isn't to say that I'm opposed to dating any men, it just means that a note from an interesting female is going to make me smile even more than one from an awesome man. Make no mistake though, an awesome message from an interesting man will make me smile too! In either case I'm probably going to want to develop a friendship before I seriously consider anything more romantic. But who knows, the right person(s) could probably convince me to change my mind about that!
In terms of who I am beyond all that boring stuff, I'm a mid-30s professional in search of a better job but thrilled to have a job I enjoy and that actually utilizes some aspect of my degree. Bonus! I always have a book somewhere nearby, and am addicted to playing games on my iPhone. Actually, I think I'm just addicted to my iPhone! I can text all night but don't really like talking on the phone (unless I know a person very well.) (Note: Just because I like to text does not mean I'm going to be exchanging numbers with you immediately. I'm selective about who gets my number.) I have a fondness for bad puns, especially bad fish puns, that no one else seems to appreciate. I was raised a country girl in a town that was around 7,000 on a good day but love living in the city now. I find myself occasionally nostalgic for my life back in a small town. When that happens I get in my car, drive just about anywhere in St. Louis, and say a fervent prayer of thanksgiving that I am not in the middle of nowhere anymore. Small towns have their own charm but the "big city" frees you to be who you are, at least in my experience.
I'm trying to think of what else to put in here but my mind is, of course, blank right now. Honestly I'm happy to talk about myself; feel free to ask me anything!
