My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Not single. I consider myself polyamorous or ethically non-monogamous with very low-complexity agreements. I'm involved with someone who lives in another city and we talk about everything. Throwing this in the first paragraph to notify the folks who aren't ok with that.

I moved to Seattle when I was out of work and got a job offer and needed to continue to support my (many) (adopted) kids. I came back when I realized they were, in fact, not following me out there, and things had picked up enough here that I could get a new job. I'm going back some day. When the kids are grown at the latest. I was very happy in the northwest, but yes, when there I regularly talked up the good things about Cleveland.

Someone said I look stern in my photos on here, but I'm not going to bother to wrestle some up which show me as the happy smiling person my friends say I am.

Love to ride a bike. Any kind, anywhere. My user-name on here is kind of a zen/bicycling reference,

I am playful, kinetic, and gregarious.

I am an activist in the "everybody can look however the hell they want" movement. I love people. I love queer people. I love freaky people. I love interesting people. I consider myself freaky, and would like to think I'm interesting.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working. Living. Exploring. Supporting people. Riding my bikes. Trying to eat good food and drink good beer more often.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
throwing together a meal for whoever's around out of whatever's at hand, listening with interest, teaching with patience.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I am dancing my ass off. (Well, you know, if it's that kind of party.)

That I am kind of quiet (it's an illusion that will be broken when I get to know you a little better, it's just that I am trying to listen to get to know you, where you are coming from, what you are like, first.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Music: Noisy, dance-able, up-beat, grinding, difficult, grating, funky, etc. In various combinations. Punk roots, but appreciation for lots. My favorite live band at the moment is Rubblebucket. They can get a room moving. I am amazed by the variety available on Spotify, so I go on benders. I also enjoy various public radio shows, broadcast and on podcast.

Food: Veggie food that isn't fake versions of meat-food. Grains, beans and veggies. Rice. Curries. Ethiopian/Eritrean. Dark beers and sour ales.

Movies: I prefer something with an edge. Excitement or thought. Though fun can be fun.

Books: I don't even know. I can always go back and re-read Vonnegut, or older science fiction, but I like a wide variety. I go to the library and always come back with something. I realized recently I had missed Octavia Butler completely so I scored a couple of her books and read them.

Shows: I didn't even have a "shows" section for a long time. I don't watch anything new. I caught up on a bunch of the standard geeky far eventually. Buffy, Firefly, Dr. Who. (Not actually caught up on the Dr. anymore.)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
I like to think that all I would need would be rice, water, and warmth, and I could live forever, but in the interest of playing along, to make me happy in the life I am living:
Warm days (or at least the promise that they will return.)
Physical contact
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
what I could do to know more people. How to do well in meeting my obligations.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
recovering from the week. Cleaning. Cooking. Friday is currently usually spent with my two middle kids, so games, movies, some sort of hanging out. When that wasn't true I liked to try to make Critical Mass and Secret Soul Club on last Fridays.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
The problem is, I am an over-sharer and have low boundaries. So I can't even think of candidates for the answer to this question. Except for things I just wouldn't post. And you could probably ask me about those things the first day we met and I would answer.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
you like music, art, activity, whatever. Getting out and doing things. You aren't looking for the one to complete your life, but just want to enjoy life a bit more, and with company.
