I am an intense, passionate intellectual who loves mental challenges, games, and discussions and places almost no importance on status, profession, or wealth. I don't give a crap what your salary is but if you can dazzle me with science or logic I will fall madly in love.
I am in an open, polyamorous marriage to purpleishgreen. This isn't a 'get laid on the side' sort of deal, but rather a freedom to have relationships of all sorts that compliment and improve our life together. We believe in honesty and open discussion and NOT in veto power or rigid hierarchy. The idea is to integrate awesome people into our lives in whatever way makes sense for that person or relationship. Depending on the person that could end up being anything from occasional trysts to casual dating, an intense love affair, or a future domestic partner.
The best word to describe my orientation would be heteroflexible. I am open to relationships with anyone regardless of sex or gender identity but I can't ignore the fact that my sexual attraction almost exclusively pings for female bodies. I think it would be pretty cool if I was sexually attracted to more types but it hasn't happened so far.
I lean pretty far left politically (if you think Stephen Harper is an okay dude then don't even bother talking to me) and think that 'normal' and 'tradition' are dirty words. I am also a serious atheist and will often ask you to cite your sources, provide confidence intervals, and if your study isn't properly double blinded then gtfo.
If you know about Myers Briggs personality types I generally score as iNTj. This means I recharge with quiet time and I am organized but neither in extreme. However, I am always a rational, big picture thinker. I feel tremendous passion for so many things but I make decisions about which passion to follow in a logical, scientific way!
My life took a strange path - I got a math degree, sold beds for a few years, and now I do the homemaking gig and work on raising my 8 year old along with my numerous geeky side projects. How exactly I ended up here is a bit of a mystery to me but I like it.
