My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
First thing you should know is that I'm active practitioner of ethical non-monogamy. If you don't know what that is, feel free to ask. I have a partner that I'm very much committed to:

lady_earlgrey

I have other partners as well, who I see on a more casual basis. Just to be clear, I have a one on one arrangement with all my partners (as opposed to a group arrangement, like a triad). I'm open to the idea of group arrangements in general, but I'm not in any rush to get into one. My partner and I don't believe in a relationship hierarchy or anything. I'm a believer of letting every relationship find its level.

My experience with non-monogamy has taught me that affection, generosity, nurturing and empathy are not finite resources (though sadly time and emotional energy are), so don't feel like I'm going to keep you at arm's length or be inconsiderate of your time and/or feelings.. if I am lucky enough to meet you, that is.

For a lot of people open relationships, and non-monogamy are nothing new, but for a lot of people they are. I'm also aware of the negative stigma around open relationships, thanks in large part to people who attempt them without any tools for dealing with potential bumps (Or they're just fucking bat-shit sociopaths, in which case they should probably keep their dilapidated trailer park of a relationship to themselves. Sorry if that sounds harsh. I've only experienced one such instance of this firsthand. I'll tell you about it some time between generous sips of smooth, smooth bourbon). So if you have any questions or concerns about my open relationship, ask away. It's a subject I'm not the least bit shy about.

It's come to my attention that being a girl on this site can really suck because the second your profile goes live, you're bombarded with copied-&-pasted messages from unsavory gentleman who are sure you've been waiting all your life to be ground up on by them. I've also learned that there's a plurality of guys who can form complete sentences in the Queen's English and appear decent enough in their profile, but when you meet them in real life they have the emotional intelligence of the first category of dudes. I could launch into a lengthy rant about how I'm definitely not one of those guys, but I know the only way to prove that is through good behavior and open communication.

Beard (Seasonal beard. Sorry beard lovers, but this season's beard has an expiration date of Memorial Day and then it'll be back some time in late October. If you want to hit me up before the end of May for some NSA beard fondling, I think that's weird, but I live to facilitate)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Tearing up to episodes of 'My Cat From Hell' on Netflix.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never driven a car or taken a driving lesson in my life. But I will soon, I promise.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to exchange witty banter.
You want to exchange witty pheromones.
You would pay a street musician to stop playing Sublime.
You don't mind seasonal facial hair.

I'm also interested in networking with other film/video professionals, shooters and editors in particular. So feel free to reach out for that purpose, and I will keep it oh, so platonic and professional. I know there's other sites for that, but Linkedin gives me a rash.

Oh, and here's a deal for those of you who may want to message me, but are suddenly overcome by writer's block (this happens to me quite a bit, and I can't be the only one): Feel free to write a very brief (even single word) message ending in "Mayonnaise." This is partly to test if you've closely read my profile, and partly to give you an out for aforementioned writer's block. Bonus points if you can catch the literary reference.

And in case you zipped right to the bottom of my admittedly lengthy profile, please keep in mind that I'm in a committed-open relationship, and it's a pretty serious-major part of my life. If that's not a deal breaker, then bless you, and let's get to know each other!

I will be more likely to message you first if we have a high match rating, AND it say's you're open to open-relationships. In fact I won't message anyone who says they're not out of respect. However, I know from experience that some of you out there are interested in open relationships, but have a valid reason for not advertising it publicly. If you fall into that category and think you might want to date me, please feel free to message me for some winning conversation that WON'T involve shaming you for not being out about your non-monogamy.
