Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Life is pretty busy. Right now my time is spent doing work for grad
school, looking for a career job, hanging out with my boyfriend,
and self-care. I might still have time for you.
I've been shaped a lot by my involvement in the electronic dance
community. When I didn't know who I was or what I wanted, it was
there. I met a lot of my friends and learned to dance to take care
of my sanity.
I am open to many possibilities and have lots of crushes on
beautiful people. I'm in a serious long term relationship with my

looking for other men to be involved with romantically or sexually.
No boys, sending me a message saying "Can I be your boytoy?" will

Development and Spanish, which I'm hoping to use to do development
work abroad, once I make enough money to pay off my credit
I'm starting to become a burner, and love to dance and wear silly
outfits. Summer in Portland was crazy. Working in academia requires
a different sort of dancing and wearing silly outfits.
I believe in trust, open communication, and realness. I am
interested in learning more about non-violent communication.
I have lived in Portland most of my life, but knew I had to leave
to chase my dreams. I'm in grad school now. Aieee!

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Cooking fabulous grain-free food, seeing my boyfriend for the first
extended period of time in a week and watching silly scifi like
