Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I felt like a bit of an update, though I'm maintaining several
things on this profile nonetheless. I was inspired.
I'm an artist. I love to read mostly fantasy, but I'll read most
things.) I write poetry when I get a passion for it and rants when
I get a passion for them--fortunately for the world, they're both
rare. I love history and am geeky enough about it to both read it
and re--enact some of it, though Renaissance Faire is my favourite
so I'm not too uptight about it.
I love being with my friends, especially since most of them may as
well be my family as I see them that way. I like people who are
quirky (though I hate that word 'cause of it's annoying
I'm both spontaneous and well-planned...only one of many of my
dichotomies--along with organized and messy, quiet and talkative,
passionate and mellow. Don't ask me why, I don't know. I just seem
to like the ends better than the middle.
I am currently married and in an open relationship and perhaps
seeking a polyamorous one (depending on the "applicant".) This
doesn't mean, "Wow! Free sex!" If you think it means that, go pick
up a dictionary and look up polyamory. I genuinely love people and
prefer close relationships of any variety, rather than shallow
ones. I don't expect an immediate "love-date" connection, I don't
expect anything. I prefer relationships to progress how they will,
in whatever direction they naturally wish to go. Friends are just
as valuable as lovers, and both in one is totally awesome.
And, btw, none of us really likes labels, but how else do we go
about describing some of the more amorphous elements of our
natures? Suck it up people. You're just a unique little snowflake
like the rest of us.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Taking each day as it comes and milking the best out of it, even in
the simplest ways. I'm a bit of a wastrel. I really should have
been one of those rich Romantic poets who dabbled in everything and
specialized in nothing but living life.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
A great many artistic and crafty pursuits. I love art in so many
forms. Careerwise, I do: acrylic, watercolour, mosaic, picassiette,
and ceramics. I also love more crafty things for my own enjoyment,
such as sewing and needlework. I'm also a very good cook, which
people comment on regularly. I love intellectual challenges at
times, but I don't like to be competitive (well, maybe a little.)
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My sense of humour and warmth. My tattoos. The seemingly endless
supply of Converse All-Stars I wear.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I love and hate this section. I love talking about all these things
I love, but I also know I'm barely skimming the surface of it all.
These are all talking points, but they really don't say as much as
they should. I hate this section because it feels limited,
constricted, and forcibly scripted. I wanna talk about all of this,
but even more I wanna talk about something new and be even more
The Dark Tower series by Stephen King, The Lord of the Rings, The
Farseer series by Robin Hobb, The Black Company books by Glen Cook,
and anything by Tad Williams. I'm an avid reader, with a huge
library of books (1900 or so.)
Movies are hard to narrow down. I love a great many. Everything
from When Harry Met Sally to Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels.
I have about half as many movies as I do books, but I think that's
I have extremely eclectic music tastes....Tori Amos to Nine Inch
Nails to Arcade Fire to the Doors. And that goes nowhere near
expressing the true breadth of my musical interests. I know
everyone says they are eclectic, but trust me...I'm not
The more interesting and ethnic a food is, the better. Indian is
still my favourite, hands down though. I really love seafood too
and wish it were cheap. I am also constantly searching for really
good sugar free desserts.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I keep re-thinking this...in no particular order:
3. a pair of black low top Converse
4. Someone who I can talk to and also spend copious amounts of time
exploring everything (sex included.)
5. Cats (they're just so damn entertaining)
6. Something creative to do with my hands.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
What I want to paint. What's going on with my friends and how I can
help them. Anything that randomly occurs in my mind. I love to
think, so I suppose nothing is really off limits. I also think
about completely random crap.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Hanging out with my friends. At home playing games, watching
movies, or making art. Or out dining, watching movies, drinking
coffee or tea, or clubbing. I do go to a particular party every
other Friday, but other than that Friday is what it is.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'll admit anything. I'm just not sure what I'd feel that private
about. I guess that sometimes I'm insecure, but I really do try to
fight that. The minute I no longer had family to wonder at the
cuckoo in the nest, I no longer felt the need to really keep things
private. I'm not out to rent a billboard, but I much prefer being
open to keeping things too close to the vest.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
I'm looking for:
Someone who respects me, someone who can laugh, someone who can
cry, someone who can have fun even with the simplest of stimulus,
someone who wants to see the world in all its good and bad, someone
whose mind is as open as their heart, someone who can make a family
from their friends, someone who knows that sharing doesn't mean
losing anything, someone who enjoys sex, but isn't afraid of
getting to know someone as a person in order to get there
I love people, but I'll admit to being picky. It isn't a normal
picky though. I want people to be themselves, in their myriad,
complex oddities. I want to like you because you order everything
with extra pickles, not because you can add up 2 + 2.
