Originally from the Midwest, I spent some time on the east coast in New York before relocating across the country to California in 2013. I love it here and don't really plan to ever leave, except to travel.
I am polyamorous and more than a little bit kinky. I am in a relationship with a pretty awesome guy who has another pretty awesome girlfriend besides me. I don't have time for people who think they have a right to dictate what I should be doing with my body, mind or soul. I thrive in my autonomy and enjoy alone time as much as I love being with other people. If you care about that sort of thing, I am an ENFP. I'm not the settling down type, so I prefer those who want to run free with me instead. I *am* looking for a serious relationship - but I don't have any desire for marriage or a family in the future. I enjoy dating both single-type people as well as those with existing partners. I am HUGE on consent and ethical nonmonogamy. If you are dating/sleeping around behind your partner's back, don't bother contacting me. I won't be party to cheating of any kind.
Intelligence and sharp wit send my heart a-flutter. I love educated people, but I don't think all education comes from books and institutionalized learning. A thirst for learning and self-improvement does not require an expensive piece of paper, and education is a privileged system that is not a one-size-fits-all.
I'm not just looking for sex or boring dates where we struggle to come up with something to say to each other. I want romance. I want to go to the beach at sunset and marvel at the exquisite beauty of nature with you. I want to seek out foodgasms at hole-in-the-wall restaurants with you. I want to laugh until one/both of us snorts with you. I want to attend a concert at a small, intimate venue and feel the music reverberate through my soul with you. I want to bar hop until 3am with you. I want to stay in on a Tuesday evening and play Scrabble or watch too many episodes of some hilarious TV show with you. I want to cook with you then drink wine in the hot tub together under the stars after our meal (yes, I have a hot tub). I want to discuss books and childhood memories and weird history with you. I want to learn from you. If any or all of that sounds good, send me a message. I want to hear from you.
