Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am an ENTJ, bellydancer, sommeliere, historical fiction
writer, and artist herder.
If it's ensemble improvised
anything, I'm down. I am a rational anarchist
and a foodie-centric hippie. I am a
non-conforming, and other pithy abbreviations.
Recently, I've become particularly interested in appreciating
things outside my comfort zone and empathising with people who are
substantially different than me. Puedo sobrevivir en español, o,
mas exactamente, Mexiglish de restaurante. Mon français est très
pauvre, mais à Maroc quand les autres choix étaient l'arabe et le
berbère, je l'ai appris rapidement.

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Herding writers and running a bnb. I regularly live abroad for
several months at a time and try to suck less at other languages.
Je suis à Montréal jusqu'en Septembre 5. Je voudrais un joli
homme pour me forcer à pratiquer le français. I'm working on
doing things I'm afraid of and appreciating things I'm prejudiced
Some part of me has an illusion that I will fit in music with my
former a cappella troupe, getting back on the Faire circuit,
jumping horses, contortion, learning to sail a tall ship, and
popping back to Chicago to dance with my bellydance troupe.
Fair disclosure: I am not looking for a primary relationship. I am
mostly looking for friends but am open to super-casual, infrequent
dating. There are three people I have slept with before whom I
would sleep with again if given the opportunity. I am not in a
primary relationship with any of them.
I’m really good at

I have a social gravitational force approaching that of a

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
People to communicate with by any medium (verbal, visual, physical,

That's the only thing.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I have a giant crush on Zevran.

Okay, I'm going to add another one that I don't usually get into in
real life, but as this is a dating site, it is relevant. I am
chromosonally female and identify as mostly male. I have decided to
live with the body I was dealt (which makes me feel like a
lifestyle drag queen, but that's kind of fun) and just get over my
'trans-agnst.' For the most part, I present male professionally and
female socially. I answer to both pronouns interchangeably. But if
you ever tell me I do not present adequately to either bianary
role, we are done.

I am interested in bonding as humans with all intelligent, daring,
kind-spirited people who are attempting to stay vulnerable and
humble. This is irrelevant to gender-presentation and may not
involve a sexual component. If you feel there is any reason why we
should tame each other (as the fox said) please do contact

* You are smart, well-socialized, and not shy.
performers usually fit this bill.
*You have a disciplined, purposeful vocabulary of movement.
Physical actors, circus performers, ballerinos.
news: as a well-fleshed bellydancer, I eat about three times as
much as all your ballerina ex girlfriends, so dinner with me is a
lot more fun.
* Bonus points if you sing collegiate a capella.
