Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
**Currently at the end of my dating site douchebag tolerence
thread. Approach with caution and/or cake, cake is good ;)**
Poly, parent, pervert,
Silly, short, science nut,
Bohemian, baking, burlesque fan,
Wistful, wondering, weirdo,
Eccentric, easy going, entomologist.
But more than a list of adjectives. I love new things and
experiences and learning. I also love taking pictures, playing
games (board and card, not mind, silly. Monty Python Fluxx FTW.),
going on adventures and keeping active.
I'm looking to meet interesting people who have something to say
for themselves and are open to the idea of ethical
non-monogamy/alternative relationship styles or who just want to
have a good conversation and see what happens!
I am not looking for random hook ups or settling down into suburban
codependency, been there and done that and it's just not my bag
I live in Northampton, but the dating pool is a bit shallow for
someone of my sexual orientation so tend to do a bit of virtual
travelling from time to time by way of a location change on here in
order to connect with more interesting people.
If you're in the Bristol area you should totally check out my
sister Scarlet-firefly, she's amazeballs.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Doing whatever I can to make the lives of the people I care about
that little bit happier.
Celebrating obscure food holidays every day of the year, then from
July this year I am letting the internet (yes, that includes you)
decide what I eat for a year. http://365daysofnoms.wordpress.com

Trying to improve it. Trying to be a good parent. Reminding myself
to find joy in the little things.
Learning stuff. I'm currently doing a bunch of online courses and
feeling like I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
Loving having a hot tub!
I'd like to be an entomologist one day.
Organising the odd social get together for no-mono folk in
Northampton and beyond.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Changing my mind, but also being decisive. Talking absolute crap
after a few pints of ale or glasses of red.
Processing stuff pretty quickly. Being a coper. Adapt or die.
Cooking stuff. Fights break out over my lime curd and nobody leaves
my house hungry.
I also think I am OK at taking pictures.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Recently someone I met off here for the first time said "Hair and
smile". So there. (I did say he wasn't allowed to say boobs though,
and yes, that means you're not allowed either).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
In lieu of a proper list have some of my favourite prose
"He who binds to himself a joy
Does the wingéd life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity’s sunrise."
- William Blake
"The cow is of a bovine ilk,
One end moo, the other milk."
- Ogden Nash
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness. It took me
years to understand that this too, was a gift.”
― Mary Oliver
"May the Angel of Wildness disturb the places
Where your life is domesticated and safe,
Take you to the territories of true othernes"
- John O'Donohue

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Independence, laughter, public transport, the internet, insects,
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Do we really want to go down that rabbit hole? I do like "red pill"
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Enjoying an adult beverage either at home or somewhere more
interesting if I don't have to be a responsible parent.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I recently hired a personal trainer to help me improve my fitness
levels (I am not trying to lose my curves though, I am quite
attached to them). I don't hate it as much as I thought I would.
Sometimes Neighbours makes me cry.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You have a silly joke to share. I collect them. You want to go for
a pint of ale sometime. You want someone to go take pictures of
creatures and stuff with.
If the best you can come up with is "hi how r u" or you send me
something offensive then you'll just end up as one more
contribution to my red rating. This makes me sad. Please don't be
put off by it though if you would genuinely like to get to know me.
