If you are non-monogamous, kinky, gamer, intersectional, feminist, trans, gender-queer, fujoshi, goth, or just a nerd with your own fun stuff to share... I invite you to drop me a line. I am always looking out for interesting people, people who build their identity around what they love, rather than defining themselves by who and what they hate. People who are nice, intellectually curious, open minded, sex positive, and most importantly who have found a healthy balance between adult responsibility and childish fun. A kinky streak does not hurt unless, well, it kinda does, but only when one asks nicely first. That being said, if "50 Shades" or "Gor" are your guides to kink, we are probably not going to be on the same page, even if I will admire your literary fortitude.
I am not here for anything specific in that I do not have a script regarding how relationships should develop or what milestones need to be aimed for. I prefer a more organic process and see where the connection goes. Though to be honest, I actually am on here mostly for the waffles, and I am starting to lose patience since not a single slice has shown up yet. I think those poly people were lying to me....
I do not have a solid self identification within the rather broad domain of 'non-monogamous'. Each of the terms floating around has many usages and problems, and depending on who you are talking too they can mean radically different things. Though I am kinda digging 'intersectionalist non monogamy'.
I also hesitate to describe myself as a 'gamer' at this point, since GamerGate and the amount of casual support it got kinda soured the community/identity for me.
Professionally I work in research, trying to figure out how to get simulated people to hate each other in just the right amounts. It is actually a lot harder than you would think, esp since they do not let me anywhere NEAR students much less perform experiments on them.
I generally spend my free time time reading, watching anime, DIY home improvement, multispectral photography, Minecraft, and trying to get back into sewing. At some point I hope to learn jewelry making.
Though realistically, in this heat, I am spending most of my time simply huddled in an air conditioned room trying not to move too much.
For TV I have mostly been working my way through my backlog of anime fansubs. Outside that I tend to jump between documentaries or mindless cartoons as background when doing hobby type things. I am really enthusiastic about the cluster of series like Adventure Time, Steven Universe, Gravity Falls, Star vs the Forces of Evil, Bee and Puppycat, Bravest Warriors, etc. I have mixed feelings about Rick and Morty, but am curious to see if the show improves if they hold to their promise to actually *gasp* hire a woman writer next season.
Food.... Japanese, Indian, Thai, those seem to be top of my yummy list.
Music... mostly dementia and filk, though I have a few others like Jethro Tull, Splashdown, Switchblade Symphony, Concrete Blonde, Eve's Plum, Jack Off Jill, Vanessa Mae, The Piano Guys, Laura Shigihara, Live on Release, Eve's Plum.. but mostly stuff that would appear on Dr Demento or The FuMP ^_^
On a flea,
On a tail ,
On a frog ,
On a bump,
On a log ,
In a hole,
In the bottom of the sea
Ok that is more than 6 things, but I don't actually believe in frogs and that cuts out two right there.
I think I will take a different approach and say 'contact me if you don't want to.' Starting conversations with strangers can be stressful and I know us shy introverted types often really do not want to deal with those awkward initial messages even though we do like the connections that can develop from it.
So I invite people who are uncomfortable with the idea of starting a conversation, but think we might get along, to say hello. I am always looking for a cute excuse to wander around a museum for an afternoon or explore some park with a couple cameras. If nothing else, I tend to be a good person for those who do not have many spoons to spare.
I would also suggest checking out my SO cheerfullygoth who is a spiffy person, is also poly, and is looking for new connections of her own. I am also involved with VeganPhD, who is not looking but does have a profile here.
