Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hello, lovely okcupid-goers!
Let's see...I'm reasonably badass. I'm into creative chaos, dice
with too many sides, long books, craft beer, getting lost on
purpose, and happen to be a world class medallist in kitten
spooning. I also enjoy creating improbable back-stories for people
taking public transit.
Disclaimer: I am poly. I currently have a ridiculously awesome
boyfriend-person of roughly a year. I have the space in my life for
new people for the first time in a while, but am also admittedly
not really looking too hard to fill any specific niche. So what am
I looking for? Friends. Lovers. Cohorts. Collaborators. How am I
supposed to categorize you when I haven't even met you yet?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Right now, I coordinate service for security-related systems in the
It’s actually pretty cool – they’re essentially paying me to solve
extremely high liability resource puzzles, and I get to actually do
some good, too.
There's still a slight chance I'll scrap everything, listen to all
those prophesies, and just be a goddamn superhero already.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

re-imagined fairy tales, non-linear story lines, transhumanism, and
huge goopy amounts of symbol.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. My friends and lovers, which is possibly corny but absolutely
2. Books. I'm going to lump my sketchpad into this catagory as
3. Hot beverages--Quality tea is absolutely essential, and I also
4. Sex (this isn't in order by the way)
5. My fuzzy babies Blackberry and Jam
6. The moment you realize you've bitten off slightly more than you
can chew, and the subsequent moment where you realize you don't
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Aleatoricism--It's not a religion or anything in spite of the
-cism. Look it up if you like pretty words.
Dreams. Souls of places. Game theory. Cyborgs. Intrigues. Noise.
Quiet spots. The past, the present. People, animals, and gods.
Private mythologies. Masks behind faces. Doppelgangers. Jelly-Belly
flavours. Bloody kisses. Heavens and hells, and things in between.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Really I'm a mixed bag, and quite bad at having patterns. I like
social board-gaming and sometimes host that or Disney nights. I'm
happy going out and grabbing fancy beers or staying home for
cuddles and netflix and a homemade meal.
Next Friday, I'm free*.
*May not actually be free
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
When I was little, I had imaginary invisible horses.
My twitter account is @Messy_Muse. Go ahead, click! Be prepared
though - It's mostly furry references, puns worse than the ones
your dad makes, and cat pictures (so, basically it's entirely
representative of its author).
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
If you want to and you aren't sure you should. =)
Note however that I'm NOT looking for casual sex--That's why I
didn't tick the box. If I like you and we have chemistry sex isn't
off the table...It might even be on a table... Sexy friends=<3.
But I'm not really into the whole one night stand thing. I like
being at least friendly with my food.
I also like friends without ANY sexiness thrown into things! So you
should message me if you're into that, too, you oddball kinky
You MUST be:
-Ok with polyamory (and if you have questions, please don’t
hesitate to ask)
-Able to convey yourself well via text
-Willing to put up with my occasionally being too skittish to go
out without taking it too personally (I have intermittent social
anxiety which, unfortunately, sometimes makes itself a
-Someone willing to mess around with preconfig relationship
settings, and gender expectations if you happen to be male
