Things you should probably know about me:
* I'm happily married to galens. I'm open to new relationships, and I'll tell him about them. This basically makes me poly.
* I'm politically progressive, philosophically analytical, and religiously Christian. Intelligent debate is awesome; closed-mindedness is not. Regardless of your beliefs, as long as you respect me as your equal, I'll do the same to you.
* Some things that interest me: cycling. Cooking. Sci-fi. Parks. Ancient history. Public transit. Food trivia. Technology. Degus. Storytelling. Shiny dice. Anthropomorphization. Regional fiction. Empathy.
* I respond best to well-written e-mails that either ask me an interesting question or suggest a fun activity. I'm hypothetically open to pretty much anything, from platonic activity partners to pen-pals to kinky scenes, but giving me a reason to find you interesting is a crucial first step.
I recently rewrote this profile, but these paragraphs from the old profile still encapsulate me pretty well:
I like playing geeky board games, and visiting museums, and curling up under a blanket to listen to the rain. If I'm in a park, I'd rather swing in the playground and feed the ducks than jog around the lake. I enjoy intelligent conversation, especially when I'm learning something new or explaining something I love, and I'll admit that I have a weakness for shamelessly nerdy in-jokes.
I have a habit of acquiring a soft spot for odd genres: for example, Bollywood, Europop, dating sims, and British chick lit. I think it stems from a combination of my tendency to look for the best in something, and my need to unpack and decipher anything inexplicable. Please do not be alarmed by any apparent lack of good taste.
