I'm intellectual, honest, respectful, and completely irreverent/goofy in the right company. The labels dork, scientist, and artist all apply, though I could argue that scientist-me has artist-me locked in a basement somewhere and she's desperately trying to escape. I have lived on three continents, visited four, and would love to pull that up to six one day. When people get to know me they call me things like snarky, feisty, fun, and free-spirited, but at first they tend to think me aloof and/or intimidating. I do fly in the face of gender norms, which confuses people. Think of me as a dude in a chick's body, who happens to wear make-up and high-heels when the mood strikes. I am polyamourous, body-positive, sex-positive, and kink-positive, though pretty picky about who I share the second two interests with. I'm interested in people from whom I can learn new things. I want to meet others who love to learn but don't think they're better than everyone else for trying. So there.
In all seriousness, I'm looking to connect with friendly, creative people who are also turned on by intelligent conversation, strive to live with purpose, and know how to enjoy life (not read as "love to drink heavily").
