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 2010) 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 newly 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 friendship-with-groping (my term for FWB, because friendship is benefit enough) is certainly welcome, I'm definitely more in the market for straight up friendship. Also maybe friendship with naked hangouts, because nudity.
*I firmly believe that any made up word is valid as long as everyone in the conversation understands it.
8/23 - done with the wedding and now I need a new hobby. Who knew that planning a little party like that would be so entirely overwhelmingly time consuming? Well now I've got lots of fun afternoons to do adventures...or clean my apartment.
