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 who used to have a profile, but deleted it
because men in this city are the worst.
The second thing you should know is that I'm spending about half my
time this month in New Paltz, so I might pop up there or in NYC.
Stay tuned to find out where I'm going to be and when.
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
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.

A couple people have told me I'm reminiscent of Paul Rudd, but
taller. A "Tall Rudd" if you will. Personally, I'd love for that to
be true, but I just don't see it.
If you swiped right because of the GORGEOUS pup in my current
profile pic, I begrudge you not (If that pic is no longer my
profile pic, and I forgot to amend this section, feel free to send
me a gentle reminder).

I'm now in my thirties and I find it's not so big a deal because
I'm a white, able bodied male and society doesn't treat my sex
appeal like a bottle of milk that's starting to get sour. It bums
me out that people outside the bubble of privilege have to deal
with that. It's also occurred to me that I'm seeing a lot more
lovely older women on Quickmatch now because they set their minimum
age to 30. Good move ladies! I'd probably set the same parameters
if I dated guys (though as we all know, for most men, adolescence
ends around the same time as the ability to chew solid food,
amaright?!). What I guess I'm trying to say is that I'm happy to be
here, and look forward to proving that sex and dating will only get
better with age if we can all get past our culture's ridiculous
Dorian Gray body standards!
Looking through my answers to questions on OkCupid, and thinking:
"Oh shit, why would I ever say that?! I sound like a misogynist

The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I've never driven a car or taken a driving lesson in my life. But I

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 (We can
probably still date if you like Sublime, but not to the level that
I have to ever hear it or acknowledge that it was once a thing.
Sorry, I have my reasons for this and I'll gladly discuss in
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. Nobody has so far, even a few
who are familiar with the author, so here's a hint (NO GOOGLE
SEARCHING!): He's a late beat / proto-hippie poet who migrated from
Tacoma to San Francisco to Montana, and once wrote a story about
watermelons that grow black and soundless on a certain day of the
week. That particular story doesn't contain the "mayo" reference,
but if you're familiar with the author, you'll know that it's
included in a three volume omnibus along with the story that does,
and you'll know it's the right omnibus if you look at the back
cover (There's three omnibii of the author's work by the same
publisher. Also, that's the correct plural form of omnibus, no
matter what spell-check says!)
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
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 open to non-monogamy, out
of respect. However, I know from experience that some of you out
there are interested in open relationships, but have a good reason
for not advertising it publicly (not that you should feel the need
to defend that reason to me or anyone). 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.
