Second: My freelance work involves editing leftist academic material -- so ideally we'd have similar politics and you're at least somewhat aware of grammar and spelling.
Beyond that: I'm queer and exploring polyamory. My (now ex-)wife and I opened up our marriage three years ago, but we later decided that after almost 8 years together, we'd each be able to grow best living apart (but nearby). So we've recently transitioned into a loving, supportive friendship.
While casual dating has its place in my life, I would eventually like to find someone(s) with whom to explore polyamory in the context of a long-term, supportive relationship. However, I'm also quite content with my life in a solo sense, so if a relationship isn't flowing, I'm fine to let it go (and become friends, or not). Essentially, I'm into building more commitment if it works for both of us.
