Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Turn, turn, turn. I keep rewriting this.
Here's the thing. The easiest "bucket" I fall into is "casual sex,"
but that doesn't really capture what I want. Honestly, I would like
a long-term, very loving, non-monogamous relationship with someone
who understands that I'm sort of a strange, hyper-intelligent,
radically self-sufficient, and slightly antisocial individual.
Despite all that, I'm incredibly loving (and, dare I say,
loveable), but I get that I'm a tough nut to crack.
I'm going to be living on the road, soon; I have this opportunity,
since I'm a computer programmer and I can do my job anywhere. This
means that our relationship will of necessity be sporadic.
Since I'm non-monogamous, I'm not looking for someone to "complete
me" (in fact, this concept vaguely repulses me; I'm complete
already and I hope you are, too...). There may be people I know
with whom I have a mostly intellectual connection, some just fit
too perfectly for snuggling, and some may just be incredible in
bed. Some may be several of these. It's all good; you don't have to
be "everything" to me, and I don't expect I'll be "everything" to
you. That's okay -- I know my strengths (hideously intelligent,
uproariously funny, amazing in bed, surprisingly kind) and my
weaknesses (kind of a flake, a perpetual wanderer, never sure "what
I want to be when I grow up," not monogamous at all). I'm not
desperate for a partner(s), but I don't say "no" when I meet one I
Hmm. Don't feel like more soul-searching right now. I'll write more
when I think of it/feel like it.
Aside: I seem to spend a lot of time cutting and welding steel,
lately. If you message me and I don't respond, I'm probably down in
my "shop" watching little trickles of molten metal flow and reshape
themselves... It's hypnotizing, really.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Starting a Tibetan scream-singing group.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
"I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process
anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or
processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything
sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or
processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do
I find that I'm good at almost anything I try, except dancing. That
still needs work.
Oh, and to quote the Big Lebowski, apparently I'm not "into that
whole brevity thing."
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes people notice the large African parrot I keep on my left
shoulder. It's a sort of talking, pooping fashion statement. Oh, I
should mention, he's invisible. But very noticeable. I'm
sure people notice him; they're always staring...
I have lovely warm brown eyes and a beautiful smile -- or so I'm
told. I'm very solidly built, with broad shoulders and a thick
chest. My usual expression is a wry half-smile. You decide.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I'm picky about food, but trying to change that. With my previous
weight loss surgery (a smashing success, mind you), my food choices
can be limited, so with a picky palate, that can be constricting.
But I am expanding my horizons at a rapid pace. If the only thing
we have in common is a desire to expand our palates (or even just
my palate), that works, too!
I like most music, and especially live music. I LOVE EDM -- I
produce it. I used to say that I liked every kind of music except
country and hip-hop. Well... I can't say that anymore. I went
through both Tin Pan Alley and yodeling phases. I am eclectic. And
Movies and books -- I like things that challenge me, but I tend to
gravitate towards fluff a lot of the time. I love to think, but
that shit's exhausting!
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1) tech (I'm a tech geek, what can I say?)
3) love, sex, and friendship (that all counts as one, right?)
6) lifelong learning
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think about strange things. I think about politics and science
and sociology and color theory and music theory and sex and
linguistics and the origins of religious mythology. I think about
how insects move, how microecosystems evolve, and how to solve the
embodiment problem in artificial intelligence. I think about the
problems with our broken political system, why people never change
their minds, and how to best surf the currents of popular culture.
I think about strange things.
Of course, sometimes I'm just captivated by a passing cloud or the
play of light and color on a building. I'm weird that way...
And, of course, I'm a guy, so... sex. A lot.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I had weight loss surgery. I've never been in a fist fight. I've
been arrested. I once talked a woman into an orgasm. I
licked a car once when I was in my 20's; it tasted like dirty. And
metal. I think rainbows are pretty, but I don't like ponies.
Not much about me is private, to be honest.
But okay, okay, I lied. I like ponies.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
... you're okay with a non-monogamous relationship. I don't care if
you are monogamous, but I'm not. Call me poly, call it an "open
relationship" or "friends with benefits"... call it whatever you
need to call it, but I'm not monogamous. That doesn't mean I don't
get attached and fall in love and dream of a life together, but
it's never been a dream of just one person. If that's a
deal-breaker, we probably won't work.
I don't do drugs or drink *at all* (I tend to break out in
handcuffs when I drink, and I've never found anything else that I
much like), so if you can only interact fully while intoxicated, it
might not be a good match. I really don't care if you partake, I
don't even care if you partake around ME, but if your only idea of
a good time is "getting wasted" or you can't be around me sober,
it's not a good fit.
Physical attraction matters. I'm sorry to have to say that, but
there's apparently a meme that physical attraction shouldn't
matter, that we're just floating brains and all that matters is
that we read the same books and play the same games. Don't get me
wrong, that matters -- a lot -- but if the lust ain't there, we're
not going to be anything more than pals. Which is fine, and all,
but just... set expectations accordingly ;)
Honestly, I'm fairly happy with my life right now. I wouldn't mind
what's euphemistically called a friend with benefits; not that I
couldn't handle something "more," but I just don't want the drama.
I'd like someone who's sympatico to chat with, snuggle with by the
fire, and do fun sexytimes with.
