My self-summary
I'm nowhere near as egotistical as my profile name sounds, but I do like getting on stage and pretending to be. If you're interested in getting a sense of me, check out my pics - I'm keeping my face out for professional reasons, but they still capture my personality pretty well, I think.

I'm moving to Seattle in August, so I'm hoping to use OKC to get a sense of the city, meet friends and activity buddies, and begin building a community. I'd love any advice you have about the move, the city, etc. I'd love it even more if you offered to show me something about Seattle that you love - I'm especially interested in seeing or dancing to music, hardcore yoga, rock-climbing, and fire play. I'd love to meet some musicians - I'm hoping to start a proper gigging band again, once I meet musicians I'm sufficiently excited to play with.

Incidentally, that also means it's worth mentioning: OKC doesn't do a terribly good job with polyamory categories, though it's still probably the best thing out there. Even though I'm currently seeing a few people, I list myself as single because a) none of them are committed, long-term relationships, and b) none of them will be with me when I move to Seattle. I'll keep in touch with them over the interwebz and likely get some visits from them, but will be very much looking for new friends and folks.

Also, I was in a very different place in my life when I did the bulk of my OKC questions, and I was looking for very different things at the time, so some of what OKC thinks about me is inaccurate (e.g. I'm actually very love-driven, thank you very much [profile-tab!], but I wasn't looking for a serious relationship at the time and the OKC robot-monkey misinterpreted).

So, tooting your own horn is pretty much required here. Since I have a severe distaste for it, I'm going to list some things my friends have said about me instead: the most idealistic person in the world; considerate; sensitive; weird in all the right ways; sexier than 98 % of people on the planet; naughty little schoolgyrl; an adorable stray with floppy ears and a patchy spot over one eye; sexcellent; way too rambunctious for pants; ridiculously and quite unjustly cute; sweet smile; a gregarious fluid; smart, sexy, and respected by peers and mentors; a really good dyke; you are such a weirdo, in all the sweetest ways; people sure are enthusiastic about having sex with you!; easy to be yourself around; subsists entirely on pure audacity (I'm especially proud of the last one, given that it came from my friend with a rainbow mowhawk, antithestasia). I also have a friend who graced me with the sentence "I hang out with all these interesting people, like magician and jugglers and fire-eaters and Taz!" and a recent partner told me "You make what I had thought were unreasonably high standards of behavior in a relationship seem perfectly reasonable."

And some phrases I've been stealing from others' profiles, because I like them and they apply to me (in no particular order):
"bohemian, adorkable, and hippie-go-lucky"
"work on developing myself in each moment, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically."
"orgasm enthusiast"
"I am queer in every sense of the word."
"I'm a feminist and a vegetarian. I have a good sense of humor. I don't think those last two sentences are mutually exclusive."
"[I'm really good at] Cuddling and making strange sounds in the place of proper sentences. Getting distracted by shiny objects."

Big, important parts of my personality and time are spent on: music, yoga, feminism, social justice activism, learning and teaching, reading and writing, art and culture, travel, dancing to loud thumpy music in interesting and unexpected locations, finding/making/eating yummy vegfood.

Oh, and I switched my profile from "bi" to "Straight," because, quite honestly, the vast majority of guys who send messages on OKC are annoying and problematic (my sincere apologies if I am "that guy" to anyone reading this!), and I'm sick of getting messages from them. Bi- isn't really the word I most identify with anyways. But, if you happen to be male/masculine identified, feminist, and think we have enough in common that messaging me is worth your time, please do!
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to make the world a better place in whatever ways I am best suited for, trying to make life better and happier for the people around me, and trying to keep focused on being grateful for all the amazing things in my life.
I’m really good at
Not these profile thingies! Um... creating loving community spaces, playing acoustic guitar and electric bass, writing songs, arguing feminist and social justice causes, making people laugh and grin, hugs, cuddling, crazy yoga poses...
The six things I could never do without
I've never managed this sort of thing, so we'll consider this a tentative, ongoing project:
1) human contact/touch
2) sunshine
3) yoga
4) community
5) all the varied emotions and experiences we tend to ball together and call "love"
6) internets
I spend a lot of time thinking about
"Just so you know: my weird mind wanders and my brave heart breaks
I have nailed some milestones, but I make mistakes
because I've got more faults than a map of California earthquakes.
I am taking a nap beneath your covers.
Wake me if you like me;
wake me if you want me;
wake me if you need another poem.
Your once and future lover
has made himself at home."

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I first got on OKC, I was teaching classes at a nearby college and I accidentally found one of my former students' profiles; the robot thought we'd be a really good match. I figured it was best to at least acknowledge this, 'cause she'd see it sooner or later anyways, so I sent her a message, figuring we could both laugh at how awkward or wrong or ridiculous it was. Her inbox was full, so in a not-too-bright moment, I hit the "wink" button (which doesn't exist anymore!). In hindsight, that was probably a mistake.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–38
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating, short-term dating
You should message me if
yes :)

I'd especially love someone to pair up with for rock climbing or seeing some live music, good vegan restaurants, or advanced yoga classes. This is a strong enough desire that I've decided that (*for a limited time only!* as the advertisers say) I'm going to accept any invitation and meet up at least once with anyone who wants to. Maybe this will lower the fear-of-awkwardness-rejection barrier and I'll get some interesting messages and invitations.

Oh! And if your'e going to Critical Massive, pleasepleaseplease contact me even if you don't particularly like me ;P I'm hoping to go, and would really like someone to talk to about the event and organizing things for it.
