●Please be aware that I do have a boyfriend. We have an open relationship, we're each others primary significant others's, and we live together.
●If you want to date me, you will be dating me, not both my partner and I. We're not a package lol.
●I'm open to all types of friends, but I am only interested in dating therians or otherkin. I define both later in my About Me section.
Male friends: 30-39 years old
Females friends: 18-26 years old
Exceptions: 1) If you know of a part time and under the table job I may be able to work, or 2) If you're otherkin.
●Anyone messaging me, with the exception of customers, should live in California.
●Please don't go off complementing me; it makes me really uncomfortable. Instead, make your message interesting!
●I know it is long, but please read my entire profile, especially the 'Message Me If' section. I promise, its relevant.
Thank you! :)
Hello lovely people! My name is Jiriah. I'm considered pretty weird by most people's standards, and you should know that before you start. I know my profile is long, but everything I've written was included for a reason.
First of all, I am genderfluid, which means that my gender identity fluctuates. I am physically female, but on any given day I may identify as/ feel internally like a male, a female, both genders, or neither gender.
I practice BDSM, which is an acronym that stands for Bondage and Disipline (BD), Dominance and submission (D/s), and Sadism and masochism (S&M). I have been in the BDSM community for about 5 years. I am a Dominant and a primal. This is purely informational; I am not currently looking for submissives or slaves at this time. If you are interested in learning about BDSM, Fetlife.com would be a good place to start.
I am both a therian and otherkin. Otherkin is an umbrella term for individuals that identify as something other than human on a non-physical level. A subset of otherkin, called therians, identify specifically as earthly animals. After over a decade of research and analysis, I have concluded that this is a spiritual condition rather than a mental disorder (and being a psych major, I feel that I know a thing or two). The Werelist, an online forum, mainly focuses on a subset of otherkin called therians but it is nevertheless a great resource that I'd highly recommend. If and when I do start dating again, I would be looking for a partner that is also otherkin. Also, what someone specifically identifies as (wolf, dragon, fairy, etc) doesn't matter to me really; just being otherkin is enough.
In regards to my religious beliefs, I am am Omnist. I recognize all Gods, Goddesses, religions, and spiritual paths. I primarily practice Kemetic polytheism. I incorporate various types of witchcraft into those practices, in addition to many of the essential concepts of Zen Buddhism. I have been a practicing witch for over a decade now. However, just because I recognize all paths, does not mean that I like or agree with them all.
I make custom bone necklaces and do tarot readings; check out my 'What I'm Doing With My Life' section for more details!
I am German and I take great pride in my heritage, and I'm currently working on speaking German better. I'm also learning Japanese. I would love to become friends with someone who could help me practice either or both languages in person. As well, I am beginning to learn how to read, write, speak, and transliterate Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. I am learning sign language too (but very slowly lol).
I am very much the otaku. I love anime, cosplaying, manga, Magic The Gathering... too many things to list here! I will go on about this stuff for hours if you let me.
I am an INTJ personality (Introversion, Intuition, Thinking, Judging): "Mastermind/ Architect". Introverted intellectual with a preference for finding certainty. Skilled in analysis. A builder of systems and the applier of theoretical models.
It's worth mentioning that I am disabled. I have several physiological conditions that can best be summed up as 'chronic pain'. However, so long as I take my pain meds before hand, I can usually do most activities, such as hiking, dancing, swimming, etc :)
I have Bipolar Disorder Type II as well. The difference between Type I and Type II is mainly that Type II has an effect on mood, not sanity. I am choosing to put this out there because not everybody wants to be with someone who is bipolar, or can even handle it. If you cannot handle it, that's fine; just move on to another profile. For the record, I do take psych meds.
I love piercings and tattoos. I currently have 14 tattoos and 11 piercings (7 of which I counted as pairs), and I still have more I want to do!
I'm a rivethead, meaning I'm into the industrial music scene and subculture. I am highly individualistic and fiercely independent. I do not respond well to the concept of conformity. I am unapologetically me. Leave your expectations at the door; I don't abide by the social contract.
I am a professionally trained and recorded flutist as well. I have gone on about two tours with my former Wind Ensemble (both out of state), and two with my former String Orchestra, as well as performing live in both solos and duets.
If you have any questions that are not covered in my profile or in any of the websites I referenced, then I would be happy to answer said questions, so long as they are asked respectfully :)
