However, I find that I'm usually not big on doing stuff that other humans seem to enjoy. I don't drink, don't smoke, don't do drugs, don't like being in loud places with lots of people... I dunno, I guess I'd always much rather sit around with one or two or three interesting people, brew a nice cup of tea (I'm kind of a tea snob), and watch a movie or play some videogames or debate questions that have no answers.
I have a rather wonderful significant other (frellasaurus), but we're doing the long distance thing for a while yet and our relationship is open for play with others (though not for additional romantic partners).
For explicitness: I am interested in making new friends with interesting interests; if some of those friends happen to come with benefits, that would also be great. You need not be interested in sleeping with me to message me. Similarly, a message from me doesn't necessarily mean I want to get in your pants -- more likely, I just think you're cool and that we'd have things to say to each other.
-- I've been to as many continents as I have American states.
-- I've bought tea at what's probably the oldest teahouse in the world.
-- I've been officially enrolled at 17 educational institutions for at least one term each.
-- I'm certified to teach English as a foreign language to adults.
-- I can "read" (that is, turn graphemes into phonemes, though not necessarily with access to the semantics) 7 different character sets/alphabets.
-- I don't know how to fart.
Oh, also, I've spent the last 5-6 years constantly being about to get back into aikido. If aikido is something you do or are interested in doing, I'd love to have an aikido buddy in the area to help keep me accountable.
(If you do the FL thing, you can find me there at the same handle.)
