[10/10/14 - I keep seeing people "like" me on the Quickmatch thing. I would love to hear people's reasons for clicking.]
I am currently dating the wonderful JMVirginia. Please feel free to say "hi!" to her, she's awesome. I'm mainly on here looking for a primary partner of my own, but I won't rule out anything. There is a possibility that you arrived here from my FetLife profile. If so, (waves). I can be found around town semi-frequently, occasionally over at the Crucible or up at Glen Echo for dancing.
I'm living in the Southwest which is quite a hoot at times. My street looks a bit run-down compared with anything even a block or two over, but the rent is cheap and I can hear when the Nats score a run or when Bruce Springsteen plays "Born to Run". I will say, I would do awful things to get a Wawa within a few blocks of my apartment.
I consider myself a bit of a geek and a borderline dork at times. Apparently, some people find it cute.
What am I looking for?
I would like to find someone who is a bit silly, yet can carry on a conversation about passionate topics. I like talking about beer, but I would like to talk about more than just beer. Tell me your thoughts on the current Supreme Court docket or on the apparent disconnect between feminism and submissive BDSM roles or the amazing new sci-fi/fantasy/noir novel you just finished. I love finding new music, introduce me to a band you love. Favorites I have found this way include Nina Simone, Neutral Milk Hotel and Robin Bullock.
As mentioned above, yes, I currently have a partner. I love her dearly and I hope we have many many years together. However, the more time goes on, the more I feel the need to find a person I can call my own. I know this cuts down the pool of available partners by something like 99.73%, but polyamory is an essential part of me. I hate the cliche, but when my partners are happy, I'm happy. When my girlfriend tells me about the lovely dinner she made for her husband and how he spoils her rotten, I get all warm and fuzzy inside. I appear to do compersion well. At the same time, I would like to find a primary of my own. I don't generally like the primary/secondary dynamic, but the terms are good for dealing with things like time allocation. Polyamory: the only relationship type that requires Excel mastery. I actually have met people who use spreadsheets to keep track of all of their partners and connections. No, I do not want to have nearly that many commitments. There does come a certain point where poly can get silly.
Okay, if I haven't scared you off yet, send me a message. :)
