I've been practicing non-hierarchical polyamory for 4 years. I live with two partners and I'm also dating another person who doesn't live with us. I am very liberal with my boundaries and don't maintain many agreements outside of completely honest communication and safety related rules. I'm very hesitant to date anyone without a basic understanding of how to be emotionally responsible, self aware, vulnerable and communicative. I would prefer if potential partners have had some experience in a stable polyamorous relationship, but if you haven't, please read Morethantwo.com before contacting me with questions about it.
I have very little time for one-on-one dates but if you want to hang out at an event I could meet you and once I meet you, my calendar might open up ;) Read below for what I'm up to and message me for current event info.
I write, play keys and sing in a folk/pop girl band:
and I've recently started playing with: http://www.postwardreamband.com/
As my day (and sometimes evening) job, I work as a nurse in a residential facility for people with special needs. I've been there 6 years and I absolutely love it.
I do a lot of dating and social networking. I'm naturally extroverted, so I spend most of my time with other people.
I'm really bad at
spelling, definitions, lying, paying attention, pop culture references, staying the same, being loyal, getting out of bed, monotony, commitment, confrontation, trivia, being on time, puns, packing, using new technology, saying no, being alone, throwing anything away, reading fiction, finishing projects, driving stick, buying things, keeping plants alive, cleaning up after myself, word association games
Don't bother reading the rest of this section, it barely matters.

I tell my partners (and I use this term fairly loosely) everything. If it's something you don't want them to know, make sure I know that.
You are an open and honest person who isn't clingy, codependent, arrogant, high maintenance, dramatic, insecure, passive aggressive, emotionally unavailable or in any way a downer or troublemaker.
You want to come to an event or show.
You are non-monogamous or a musician.
