I've been with my partner sidekickempress for over 8(!!) years, and we've been through a lot in that time. In 2010 we decided to try polyamory, since it fits with our philosophies of enjoying life and people. We don't want to deny ourselves experiences, and the opportunity for fulfilling relationships with other people. We've both dated outside of our marriage, and it's been pretty enlightening. It's taught us a lot about ourselves and our relationship. As a bonus, we've gotten to meet some excellent people! We've always talked about one day living in a community of close friends, so polyamory fits well with that idea as well. Why not live with friends and people with whom you have intimate relationships? We can't think of a good enough reason not to, either. So, yeah. We're working on that. My partner and I live with her other partner DRWise in the San Francisco bay area. It is quite nice to have a roommate and a built-in network.
I like almost anything having to do with the outdoors. I was in a frisbee league, I really want to play soccer again, I hike or go trail-running every week if I can, and I'm trying to make time for yoga and swimming! I'm also looking for someone to run with. I like to rock climb when I get the chance, ideally outdoors. Know any good spots?
I met my partner in an acting class, and we've worked on several theatre projects together and individually since then. I am exclusively an actor, while she does acting and directing. We are hoping to start an independent theatre company that is accessible physically and in attitude to people with disabilities.
Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty, Snatch, Dazed and Confused, Fight Club, Dark Knight (the whole trilogy, really), Out Cold, That Thing You Do!, Legends of the Fall, Super Troopers, The King's Speech... I could literally fill pages with movies I like. I can also quote most of them unnaturally well.
I don't have cable, but Netflix comes through with White Collar, Dexter, and Face Off ( I usually hate elimination shows, but that one is just incredibly cool ).
Music is pretty eclectic - anything from AC/DC, White Stripes, OK Go, The Beatles, Bullets and Octane, lately the Black Keys and Jack White's new solo stuff... I stick mostly to rock, but I can listen to almost anything.
Food is something I have been exploring more recently. I enjoy trying new things and I'm always interested in finding a new favorite spot. Like almost every other white dude in San Francisco, I love curry and ramen, which are plentiful near work.
some kind of vehicle - just got a new MINI Cooper Clubman (stick-shift, of course), but I make it a point to ride my bicycle as part of my commute every day. Note: auto-correct thinks 'commute' should be 'conjure'.
A way to keep in touch with friends- I tend to be the one that randomly calls people out of the blue to catch up
a job - I would go crazy without something to keep me focused (edit: I do NOT need a job to keep busy! I've been a stay-at-home dad for a month, and it's great! I don't want to go back to work...)
open space - there is SO MUCH to do in the bay area. I will never be able to complete it all...
ethnic food. and american food. food in general. I like it.
I also fantasize about going to sleep at 9pm and getting 10 hours of sleep. It never happens though. I have much more important things to do than go to sleep at 9, but it's still fun to think about.
I work weekends, so my nights for going out are actually Tuesday and Wednesday at the moment. That usually just entails going on a hike with the dog and maybe friends during the day, and having a whiskey at home that night. Enthralling, yes?
Also, if you know the bay area better than me (so, basically everyone), TELL ME ALL OF THE COOL THINGS THAT I NEED TO GO DO/SEE/CONSUME/POKE-WITH-STICKS.
Or, you know, if you want to go rock climbing. Or running. Or just talk over coffee (hot chocolate for me!) or over the internet(s). I try to get back to people in a reasonable amount of time, but as my life is generally chaotic, sometimes it takes a few days.
Additionally, if we're a high percentage match, we should be friends. Seriously.
