I like to think I'm rational, but I'm sure most irrational people would like to think they are too. I was president of the Secular Student Alliance at UCSD and a part of Sex Pop (the UCSD Sex Positivity organization) as well. I was also a member of FOOSH (the UCSD improvisation organization), and I'll be looking to find more improv-related fun in Seattle as soon as I get there!
I am non-negotiably polyamorous. Specifically, I practice relationship anarchy or non-hierarchal polyamory. Love is too fluid for me ever to try anything else. I do have partners. I'm willing to independently date two people in a couple, but I don't date "a couple", if that makes sense. Similarly, I date people individually. This part of myself is not negotiable and will not be changing.
I'm rather geeky, but I love to get out of my comfort zone as well.
Related note: Lindy Hop has both 6 and 8-count moves. This did not end well when I started, but I have since redeemed myself by taking classes! I'll be looking for the swing dance scene in Seattle as well.
Also, forgetting people's names and other things. Really really good at that.
"Damn, he's pale! Does he ever get sun?"
Maaaaybe. Maybe not.
I'm a super geek about a lot of this stuff, especially Firefly.
Almost every MMO in existence.
Current Addictions: League of Legends, Hearthstone.
Was designing my own MMORPG. On hiatus for now, but I'll be looking at getting back into it soon!

I can't just choose one, so I've linked some playlists!
(Classic Rock) When I want to listen to music that my dad probably listened to when he was my age.
(Mixed Ambient) When I want to relax.
(EDM) When I want to act like I'm "with it".
(Mixed) When I'm feeling sassy.
(Sad Playlist) When I'm down.
Caravan Palace, Parov Stelar, various swing and samba artists.
In all honesty, this really is a lot of my life. I'm an absolute fanatic when it comes to programming. It's like an art-form that few people can truly appreciate, and I love sharing it with others.
Or actively suppressing the proletariat, if you talk to my socialist friends who disagree with my left-leaning Libertarian philosophies.
(Also because I found out Locks of Love has disproportionate administrative costs to their output as a charity and I'm trying to figure out how to send it to Beautiful Lengths, which is better about that.)
Okay, for more private things: BDSM is great. Kinks are great. I'm willing to try almost anything in the bedroom at least once. I'm more a fan of being dominant than submissive, but willing to do either.
Above all else. If I can't learn to love someone's faults, it's just not meant to be. Don't hide your faults. I won't hide mine.
I want to find someone with a passion for life and a passion for something in life. Not something that you're good at, necessarily, but something that you are willing to donate a large portion of your life to and love every minute of it.
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle
I want someone that I can be completely truthful with, and even if we disagree, we can do so in a respectful manner. No thought is too taboo to entertain.
If you can't stand the idea of discussing sex in an educational, non-crude, non-personal way with someone you're not intimate with, we probably won't work out.
Not just loving of a partner, but love for mankind in general. I cannot abide those who treat strangers poorly.
A willingness to change oneself for the better
I'm not the same person I was a decade ago, a year ago, or even a month ago. I'm trying to change myself in many ways. Even now, I know that I have a lot of 'soul-searching' to do.
If you didn't feel like this was overly-sentimental, send me a message!
