My self-summary
The geography of my life so far: grew up in a little town in Vermont, went to college in a little town in Ohio, spent some time in London and Italy, lived in a Jewish collective in Chicago, just moved to Portland.

I could spend hours getting lost in a strange city, wandering through a museum, or leafing through a book, especially with a big mug of tea. I love languages, trivia, word games, and all kinds of new knowledge. I'm staunchly progressive and get pretty worked up about politics. I like to hike, and don't consider a day complete unless I've been on my bike.

I'm sarcastic, punny, and honest. I have a small group of close friends and I'm pretty quiet until I get to know someone well; I like folks who can fill the gaps in conversation without being overbearing. Cuddling makes my day.

I'm poly and in an open relationship. My boyfriend is my primary partner, but I'm open to getting involved with other people who are okay with non-monogamy. New friends are also always a good thing.

I spend a lot of time thinking about sexuality and gender. A few concepts that are important to me: sex positivity, body positivity, consent, queer identity, non-binary models of gender, pro-choice politics. If you're nodding at this list of buzzwords, high five! Let's get coffee! (or tea, or vegan milkshakes...)
What I’m doing with my life
In undergrad I studied archaeology, classics, and chemistry, and all the ways that they intersect. (Is it really really old? Can I grind it up, dissolve it, run it through a machine, and tell you what it's made of? Awesome.)

My real passion, though, is health. After college I worked as a health educator and am now a medical assistant at a large reproductive health clinic (you've heard of it). My dream is to become a clinician, focusing on primary care and mental health in queer and trans communities.
I’m really good at
talking about consensus and cooperatives. getting lost on a bike. baking vegan things. figuring out that last bewildering crossword clue. trimming latex gloves into non-standard barriers. learning fascinating tidbits, forgetting them, and getting overexcited about relearning them. accidentally telling the same stories over and over.
The first things people usually notice about me
short guy on a bike with a large book bungee-corded to the rack, singing Josh Ritter as he rides and insistently stopping at every stop sign.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I'm a pretty omnivorous reader. Right now I'm splitting my time between Jeanette Winterson's The Daylight Gate (queer take on witch trials in 16th-century England) and Mountains Beyond Mountains. On Goodreads: http://www.goodreads.com/user/show/4300624

Movies and TV: I almost never watch movies. One time someone asked me what my favorite movie was during a job interview, and the only thing I could think of was Shortbus. I've seen Angels in America and Harold and Maude about a half-dozen times each. I have recently discovered that television exists and am halfway through Arrested Development.

Radio: NPR is the soundtrack to my life. Ira Glass and I have a close personal friendship in my daydreams.

Music: Lots of folk and some indie stuff. The list of acts I've seen live recently is pretty representative: Josh Ritter, Richard Thompson, Girlyman, The Magnetic Fields, Ani DiFranco, Chris Pureka, They Might Be Giants. (On last.fm: http://www.last.fm/user/linearbbq) I was a fairly serious musician when I was younger and still dabble on piano, clarinet, and ukulele, in addition to studying Javanese gamelan.

Food: Not picky, as long as it's cruelty-free: I've been a vegan for about five years. Left to my own devices I eat a lot of variations on noodles and stir-fries, with probably way too much peanut sauce, tofu, and nutritional yeast. I love to bake.
The six things I could never do without
- someone to be with
- something to wonder about
- somewhere to go
- something to do with my hands
- something to listen to
- deep breaths
I spend a lot of time thinking about
what to make for dinner.
On a typical Friday night I am
Cooking Shabbat dinner; going to a contra dance or a folk show; hanging out with friends to bake, watch obscure movies, or play board games.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm a big spoon trapped in a little spoon's body.
I’m looking for
  • Guys who like guys
  • Ages 22–30
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
- you're in the mood for someone short and sweet.
- you need a companion for a hike or long bike ride.
- you appreciate tea and board games on a Saturday night.
- I can play with your dog. not a euphemism. cats with canine personalities are also acceptable.
