So there's the dating page advertisement. The rest is just gravy right? Or icing. But really, icing is the real reason for eating cake, as cake is just a delivery system for icing (much like pancakes/syrup, pita/hummus, everything/bacon). Whereas the gravy/turkey/mashed potato triumvirate is much more evenly matched in the personal "I want to eat this" equation. So therefore, "the rest is just gravy" is a more apt statement than "the icing on the cake" in this situation.
So here's the gravy.
A long long time ago (November 2011) I moved from Brooklyn to Seattle amid a whole bunch of crazy debilitating drama. Thus began the worst year of my life coupled with the most personal growth I've experienced since I learned how to talk.
Now I'm a much more complete human. I discovered why Seattle is so amazing. I have the best friends I've ever had in my life. I've worked some really great jobs. I really like my current job. I'm stable, happy, and engaged to be married.
Oh that. I'm in a very happy non-monogamous relationship with the most wonderful person ever. Some people can't really handle the whole poly/non-monogamous thing. But don't let that stop you from writing to me. I'm not really actively seeking outside romantic relationships. Mostly I want friends for adventure, couch-cuddling-movie-time, sushi-fishes, and whatever else the day brings. If there's a romantic spark, that's gravy (see above paragraph re: gravy).
I'm a bit poly-saturated these days. So while an extremely casual friendship-with-groping isn't out of the question, I'm definitely more in the market for straight up friendship.
*I firmly believe that any made up word is valid as long as everyone in the conversation understands it.
