I am aromantic, which is a word that means different things to different people. For me, it means that I experience all significant relationships as strong friendships which may or may not include sexy times. It also means that I am sometimes uncomfortable with certain displays of affection. But I like hugs! They're great!
Yes, I care a LOT about anti-racism, economic justice, labor rights, feminism, healthcare and immigration reform. If you are not down with my values, I do not have space for you in my life. Unless you're giving me money (i.e. family or employers), don't expect me to let any bullshit slide.
Explanations and disclaimers out of the way, I'm quite friendly as far as misanthropic bastards go. The best way into my heart is long conversations over beer about anticapitalist discourse and comic books. Or take me on a long drive along the coast. I've always been a sucker for the seaside.
PS. I suppose I should mention that I'm kinky? I enjoy a lot of SM things, and am kind of involved in the BDSM and leather scene. So feel free to ask me about that. But if that isn't anything you're into, I'd still love to bond over whatever else we may have in common.
