My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
luke/lux. queer. trans*. feminist.

i'm mostly looking to connect with new friends, but i'm not opposed if something romantic or sexual ends up happening.

i'm in an open relationship and believe that a poly lifestyle is best for me right now. i'm not looking to engage in another serious relationship, but anything else is fair game. i'm demi-sexual and it takes a bit for me to form a strong enough emotional connection with someone to desire anything sexual.

i'm drawn to people that are genuine and themselves no matter what. in fact, this is the most important quality i look for in a person.

i don't take life too seriously and try to laugh off most of the bad and negative shit in the world. i'm also generally very positive.

i've been told i'm down to earth and easy to get along long as i'm not lied to or taken advantage of. i'm goofy and friendly, awkward and clumsy. inconsistent, unorganized, generally disheveled. i used to be crazy shy, but i'm getting over it. sort of. dedicated, serious and motivated... when i need to be. gets frustrated easily, but usually pertaining to injustice, having severe a.d.h.d. or my introversion.

i'm sometimes a little stand-offish to new people i meet, and that has been off putting to some people. i believe in open communication and will be more than happy to talk about it if that happens, but it's mostly just because it takes me a little bit to warm up to new people and trust them. trust is a huge thing with me, and is a must if we're ever more than friends or close friends. i don't do well with feeling pressure to be physical or intimate, and unfortunately i'm not a cuddler until we become close. if we genuinely click and get along well, with patience and enough space to feel comfortable, things can and definitely will progress to whatever level we'd like them to :)
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
i am graduating in december, finally, hooray! i have studied lots of things, primarily social justice studies, women and gender studies, political science, history and sociology. i am spending lots of time scoping out the job market recently for post graduation.

i pet sit for a living. if you like animals, there are always dogs at my place :)

i love roller blading through the forest, especially with my dog. i really just love nature in general... as long as the weather isn't stupid hot or stupid cold :P

i'm an artist, but i still feel like i'm searching for my best medium. in the recent past i tried my hand in clay work and i really enjoyed it. i'm really interested in getting into silicone work next, but in the meantime i'd be absolutely thrilled to find a relatively cheap kiln i can access so i can do clay work at home. if anyone has any leads in the chicago area, hit me up :) i've recently gotten into making natural, organic candles and i've been creating and designing all natural, species appropriate treats for my pup kove. my hobbies are sort of all over the place!

i've got a rescue dog (pit mix) named kove and he's a huge part of my life.

i work with dogs professionally and have for several years, and i'm most of my friends "go-to" dog person; be it for information, finding the right dog for them, training, dog walking/pet sitting and everything else. if you ever need anybody to ask if your pup is mildly ill, acting funny, dog nutrition advice or canine behavioral assessments, i'm your person!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
getting distracted, cooking, training dogs, understanding/interpreting dog behavior, dog psychology, working with shy or aggressive dogs, surprises and gift giving, organizing queer events, being honest/straight forward, being cute, sweet, sarcastic and silly
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
red hair or cute dog?
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
i love 30 rock, how i met your mother, dexter and supernatural and a hand full of other random shows and movies that i don't have the patience to list out. i will watch mostly anything as long as i can have an attention span that day. i really like light hearted humorous stuff because life's too short not to laugh and enjoy things as much as possible. i'm also an empath and sometimes shows with strong emotions can be overwhelming sometimes.

my taste in food is always rotating. i love cooking, and i'm really creative in the kitchen. i can make delicious food with very limited supplies. wanna hang out and cook a meal together? because that's one of my all time favorite things to do with people :) it's so much more fun and genuine than going to a restaurant, and half of the time i can make the food taste yummier than a restaurant can anyways :P
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my friends, my chosen family, pets/animals, something positive to work towards (such as a project, school, something), and lots of free/down time to recharge
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
why conflict exists (especially in the context of film/tv and society), c'mon can't we all just get along and be nice and friendly and peaceful and open minded...

how to maintain peace within myself and those around me

society in all sorts of ways

queer related issues, gender related issues, queer event planning, what it means to me to ID as queer

dog psychology, activities my dogs will enjoy, things i can do to enrich their lives with me, ect.

interesting dishes/food combos i should replicate

how important it is to acknowledge privilege and how to examine every issue through an intersectionality lens

drugs and the positive impacts they can have on people's lives when used responsibly

why so many people are misogynistic and how gross it is; why feminism needs to exist
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
i don't like going out so much. i prefer chilling at home with friends and smoking or playing with animals over most things. also anxiety makes going out not so fun most of the time.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
i have a hard time with words sometimes, especially when i'm nervous. first messages aren't exactly my strong point... bear with me, it gets easier as i become comfortable with new people.

i make organic/natural dog treats and homemade dog food because it's cheaper/healthier for my dog and is a ton of fun. i recently started selling the kinds of treats i make for kove for extra money as a side project. who knew!
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you're not pretentious, negative, overly proud, judgmental, angry or unnecessarily rude. i'm a really chill, sweet guy and i prefer to stay away from negativity.

you're a switch or submissive and looking for a sex positive, body positive, fairly kinky play partner that's into lots of communication and all of that jazz.

you can totally be respectful of the fact that i can need a lot of physical space, and am not always into hugging/cuddling/physical affection and that sort of thing. not always the case, but just to be safe always ask first :)

***i will not respond to one word/one sentence messages... sorry :/ i'm not picky or judgmental, but i'd rather an awkward first message than a "hi" or "hey there". it feels more genuine to start a conversation rather than through out an empty phrase. plus it's hard for me to respond to a message like that, and the conversations usually don't go anywhere without something for me to work with.
