Truly, one of my favorite things about the city is that I can look out my window and people are out doing things, running, biking, gardening. Signs of actual life. I love it.
I'm intelligent, articulate, and I love discussing ideas. I'm looking for someone in this same general area.
I think self-improvement is extremely worthwhile and I value people who can point out my blind spots or offer advice. I have positive associations with the idea of changing myself.
I am an organizer for a weekly rationality meetup. A lot of the folks who attend this also come to board game nights can strategize the hell out of a game of Dominion.
I'm employed as a Game Designer (with now one commercially released title as writer/designer), and beyond that I have a filmmaking degree, have spent the past 12 years doing various sorts of writing, and play/write musical instruments (but not especially gifted at music. *In Charlton Heston voice* Damn you, marginal aptitude!)
I have kind of a two pronged approach I suppose; I need expressive, imaginative, creative work in my life, but I find it valuable to have rationality skills alongside those to make sure the subjective, personal elements are there with good reason.
I really like talking. I like talking to learn things and teach things. To hear what's going on inside of other people's heads. The kinds of conversations where it's 3 in the morning but there's *still more to say*.
Honesty, vulnerability, and candor are important to me. I want to know what what is going on inside people, beneath all the daily considerations and distractions. I want to know the real, raw stuff that people don't always talk about. I'm excellent at drawing this out if people let me. It makes the world sparkle.
I've met some people here who have been in solid, healthy polyamorous relationships, and this gave me the courage and conviction to try it out myself. So I'm trying it out.
I love dancing, making delicious food (I make some great black bean burgers), camping/backpacking, I just started playing in a MUFA league this summer, and it's become seriously addictive.
