I'm a (current) student, a (former) nanny, a (former) chef, a friend, a lover, and an all around good time. I don't tend to care for sitting through movies, but I love watching TV shows, and I have a nasty addiction to the internet. I went to culinary school, and so while you might think that would make me perfectly suited for cooking romantic meals, I'd rather cook together. That said, cook for me, even box mac and cheese, and I will love you forever. Well, unless its the Velveeta mac and cheese. I don't eat that shit. Powdered "cheese" only, please.
I'm polyamorous, and currently sharing my local love life with the amazing chitownhero. I am also super fortunate to have several mindblowingly great long distance partners. Basically, what I'm saying is that I'm super duper fortunate, and also super duper busy. This isn't me telling you not to email me, but to keep your expectations casual. My interest drifts mostly towards female identified people, but my dating history skews to the male end of the spectrum. I'm really goofy and nerdy, but I am fiercely loyal and take my relationships seriously. If going out on dates, cuddling and making out, and watching a lot of Netflix together sounds fun, let's see how we match up OFF of OkCupid! I'm really not that swell at random introductions on the internet. I also kind of loathe the process of dating. It can feel a little like a job interview.
I am mordacious, intelligent, and more introverted than you'll think when you first meet me.
Meyers Briggs type INFJ, for whatever value that may hold to you.
After I get sick of changing the world, though...the circus! Except for that nasty phobia of clowns I have, I'm sure it could work out. I always wanted to go somewhere where I felt like people saw the world the way I do, bright and colorful and very, very strange.
Movies: Not a big movie person, but I will admit to loving big action movies with scads of special effects and scantily clad people. I'm not a cinema buff, and I make no claims to be one. If you are, that's totally cool with me, just be prepared to explain what you're so excited about.
TV shows: I vastly prefer TV shows to movies. Coupling (the British version), Community, and early episodes of Good Eats are favorites.
Music: Modest Mouse, Nellie McKay, Marilyn Manson, The Killers, Aesop Rock, Dessa, opera and classical, etc...again, eclectic is awesome.
Food: I'll eat just about anything. I love traditional ethnic cuisines, and any seafood. If you pick a decent restaurant to go to or cook me something delicious, I will be a happy person. I've finally learned to like specific types of olives, and I'm allergic to bell peppers, but most any food is interesting and enjoyable to me :)
-my iPhone (Siri and I are BFFs, or something)
-my chefs knife (Its shiny and big and sharp, and it loves me)
-my stuffed elephant (Her name is Ellie and if you buy me a drink, I might be coerced in to telling you about her)
-my cat, Trysten (she's super adorable and quirky...just like every other cat on the internet)
-a car (I like to go places that aren't wherever I am)
-out having adventures
Also (bonus private thing!) - People that present as female tend to make me stammer, blush, and in general act like a shy 12 year old boy. I like ladies, I do! I just...can't really manage any passable conversation at first. I warm up in time!
if you know something I don't and want to tell me about it. I have an almost fetishistic desire to understand things I know nothing about, so even if the thing you're passionate about means nothing to me, I can get pretty excited about it. If you're not passionate about it, though...don't bother.
if you like low-key dates and queer identified people that think chapstick and mascara is a makeup routine, but also love having an excuse to get all dolled up.
if you're tall.
if you like to try new restaurants.
Or...you know, if you're bored. (I have GOT to stop using ellipses so much.)
Also, if you'd kiss me first.
You should NOT message me if:
You voted for Mitt Romney or plan to vote for Donald Trump (frankly, I'd be startled if you made it this far in my profile if you met either of these conditions).
You feel it necessary to tell me how no, really, you are WAY kinkier than me.
