I will not have sex with you. I will not be your poly unicorn or the middle of your Blondie sandwich. Don't bother me if you're looking for a booty-call. Ignore this and you will deserve the response you get.
^ My apologies for leading with a negative, but I do love valid disclaimer.
I'm one of those gamer nerds. I attend several Bay Area conventions throughout the year, though it's mostly for the LARPing, since I don't get to do it very often outside of con. I prefer the White Wolf system over the needlessly complicated and loophole-ridden D20, though I'm warming up to Fudge.
I love animals. My family and I ran a cat rescue out of my house for most of my teen years, fueled almost entirely by neighborhood kittens who'd wind up on our doorstep. I'm very likely to pick up strays, though it's not often that I keep them. I'm good at pet adoptions. I have cats and bunnies.
I like personality theory. I like MBTI and numerology and all that silly stuff that makes most people roll their eyes. I don't like them because I believe IN them, I like them because they're different sorts of tools that facilitate examination of a person's personality and behaviors. You take bits here, turn them all over and pick them apart, throw out the bits you don't like and mold them into who and what you are -- not because you want to change these systems to force them into reflecting you, but because the process of studying these systems forces you to look at a person's sense of self in a different way and from there leads you to a stronger understanding of yourself and those around you.
I'm that loud girl who talks with her hands and wiggles when she gets excited. I loves me some nonsensical tangents and casual conversation tends to ricochet from topic to topic that often hedges on the silly and bizarre.
I get along best with people who act as a sort of counter-weight to my personality. I enjoy people who are more altruistic and consistent and calm. Mellow people are good for me. Most of my friends are introverts.
I need a nontrivial amount of alone time to recharge after shenanigans have been had. I appreciate a person who knows how to leave me alone; the fact that I'm not talking doesn't mean something is wrong, it just means I don't feel like reformatting thoughts into words at the moment.
Being genuine and self-accountable is important to me, in myself and in other people. Set aside your pride and be honest: admitting to the things you don't know is just as impressive as sharing what you do know. I severely dislike pseudo-intellectuals who desperately want to sound smart but in actuality do nothing but regurgitate the ideas of other people and have the emotional and intellectual depth of an Axe Body Spray commercial.
I'm a pretty deliberate person. I appreciate people who take what I say at face value and don't try to read between the lines because there's really nothing there.
I am obsessed with red everything. If left to my own devices, my house would look like it was bleeding, and it would make me all warm and fuzzy.
I like to throw random wine and cheese parties as an excuse to act all highfalutin. My little tea sandwiches are killer.
I love wine. I like good-tasting alcohol in general. Some regular favorites are barenjager and a neat Glenlivet 12. Floofy mixed drinks are good in their appropriate time and place, but I prefer the classics.
