I'm an outgoing introvert, so I'll chat up strangers for hours but love drunk craft night with friends/working alone/making out with someone I'm mentally intimate with.
I'm passionate when it comes to learning and am fairly ambitious, and I like people who are similarly engaged with progressing their lives. It's important for me to be excited about my city and my own life, and I gravitate towards others who exhibit a similar sort of joie de vivre.
Werk stuff: I write columns for magazines, short stories, and work in people operations at a tech company (and let's be real, you probably work in tech too)
Feminist, queer, and POC theory is all incredibly important to me. It doesn't comprise my entire conversational repertoire but I love discussing it in depth with people, whether they agree with me or not. Discourse and flirtation!
Music - My perfect Pandora station: Chopin, Gottschalk, Clazziquai, Janelle Monae, Justice, and Glass Animals. Throw some Biggie in there too.
Shows - There is no show I watch that distinguishes me from the Austinite doctor-who-and-game-of-thrones crowd. Recent pleasure: Black Mirror. Brazen pleasure: RuPaul's Drag Race.
Food - I cook a lot - the hotter the better. If there were a spicy food question, it would be set not even at mandatory, but exclusionary. Listen - Chinese people have an actual word for those who don't like spicy food, and it's not nice.

Send me some longforms and I'll send you back my feelings charted on Excel.
I like experiences over things. Especially when it's the experience of fine Italian leather over starchy polyester.
I'm poly/open (not currently in a primary-type relationship), so if you message me please keep that in mind (I don't mind if you aren't, as long as you don't mind that I am!).
You read fantastic things (preferably with great statistical analysis or anthropological data, or something postmodern that isn't motherfucking Franzen)
You're a terminally ill and extremely rich person
You have a favorite historical epidemic
You're down for long conversations about incredibly intimate things, and getting into the weird nitty-gritty
You wanna do something most people think is boring (aka bingo nights/going to university lectures)
You're amused by terrible dancin and romancin
Also, my POC, femme, queer community - hit me up!
