I'M NOT COMFORTABLE BEING PROPOSITIONED BY RANDOM STRANGERS. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS.
I don't need to love someone to sleep with them but we really should at least like and respect each other. That means we've had at least one actual conversation. If all you have to say to me is "wanna fuck?" then you obviously have no interest in me as a person, I'm just something to touch your genitals with. It wouldn't be sexy or attractive in real life, it's not better on the internet.
Also, yes I have a spiritual side. I'm wiccan/neopagan in a kind of lazy half-assed way. I'm happy to discuss or explain it, if you want. I'm not interested in defending, justifying or excusing it. I'm pretty rational and practical in my daily life, and I make an effort to be a positive influence, hopefully that's more important to you than whether I maintain a few comforting and harmless delusions.
We good? Good. Now on to the fun stuff.
I talk too much, laugh too loud, eat too much, drink too much when I can afford it, and occasionally I even get enough sleep. I get really enthusiastic about things and can be aggressive, but in a friendly way, like a big dog. My favourite people tend to be (but aren't always) the ones who can either hang back and laugh at it or agress back.
I spend a lot of time thinking, either about practical issues or weird-ass ideas like how cool it would be if our species had prehensile tails. I love discussing ideas, coming up with theories and stories, and building structures of logic with other people or in my own head. I read a LOT, especially science fiction and fantasy.
I also sing a lot, almost compulsively. Combined with a longstanding talent with words, I am attempting to turn this into a livelihood. Progress is....progressing, if not as steadily as I'd like. There is a capacity for creating empathy in songwriting and performance that I've never found anywhere else. It may seem like a stupid way to change the world but I really do think I'm onto something here.
I am fiercely devoted to those who earn my trust. I will also call them out, without hesitation, when they're being stupid, cowardly, or cruel, a courtesy I ask them to return. That way we can all help each other be better people. 80 percent of the time I will gladly grant any reasonable request (90 percent for people I like) so long as you're honest with me. Anyone who does try to manipulate me through lies or fear will find out pretty quickly how stubborn I can be.
I'm poetic and pragmatic, emotional and analytical, impatient and methodical, cynical and optimistic. I can't see any objective reason to be good, but I feel the need to do it anyway. I haven't got faith so much as a vague hope that something out there gives a shit. I'm probably not entirely sane, but I think I function quite well.
