My self-summary
**Blowing it up and starting again, still long-winded and think people who can't read all of this are definitely not worth my time.**

I'm a generally decent individual who's spent the last year getting acclimated to living in the bay and making sure I've got that job thing going on. Found a lovely partner who shares my love of non-monogamy. We prefer drama free folks into the kinkier side of things. We play together, but also have our own things going on.

I bike, hike, camp and enjoy the outdoors. I also watch a few shows via Netflix, am fascinated by movies that stretch the imagination and push the grey matter and generally am looking for the type of fun that normal people don't bother with. I'm an Ex-Burner who still goes to regional events now and then, but think the Big Shindig in the Desert is a bit much anymore. I got involved with it for the explosions and snark, things have taken a more chakras and sage bend which doesn't interest me. The Detroit community I helped grow over the 10 years before moving west included the event Theatre Bizarre. Look it up and if you know of anything like it out here, let me help and become a part of your community!

Logically liberal without being too left, trying to figure out a moderate balance between wanting a better neighborhood and not being a gentrifier, sex positive, body positive and freak-flag-flying. Going through some major self discovery and growth which has been amazing. Trying to find a community family to be a part of here in the Bay.
What I’m doing with my life
Newish to Oakland, by way of Detroit. I grew up in the suburbs and then spent the last couple living within the city above a gallery/venue space where a lot of eclectic events happened downstairs. Currently staying in West Oakland while working in a new field and finding my own challenges to overcome on a very personal level.

Changed my outlook as well as my intake. Breathing deep, learning to let go and discovering my next chapter. As my name implies, it's a winding journey. Figuring out what I need to level up in order to do what it is I want to do. Concentrating on what I need to create.

Spending time exploring the kink/poly/sex positive scene here in the bay. Events like Kinky Salon, Bent, Folsom Street Fair, Luscious, etc are all on my radar and would love to find a partner in crime to attend. I trend towards the TNG variety of kink instead of the Old School one. If you're into protocol and strict roles, keep walking.
I’m really good at
-finding my way around on my bike
-Intelligent yet inane conversations about random correlations
-researching topics that interest me to no end
-hurting people who enjoy it and learning to enjoy being hurt more
-finding the bright side to almost any situation
-exploring innerspace
The first things people usually notice about me
-I don't like to look people in the eyes until I trust them
-my laugh
-I talk, a lot

food: I eat things that taste good. My friends tell me the taco truck a block from their apartment is the best in the area. I'm down to compare with yours and find out if it's true. Because friends are vegetarian, I'm sensitive to people's food needs, but I'll eat pretty much anything.
The six things I could never do without
my bohemian family
my bike
intelligent conversation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
why people let society dictate what they do instead of what makes them happy and fulfilled.
On a typical Friday night I am
I have no typical Friday night, everything is new.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I judge anyone who puts "I like to have fun!" in their profile as the most boring person ever. Seriously. Everyone likes to have fun. Use your words and tell me something about yourself.
You should message me if
-you want a cycling partner. I like to do 3-4x around Lake Merritt for exercise after work and love 20+ mile rides on Saturday mornings.
-You love to talk about random things
-you can show me around Oakland or San Fran and help me find my type of weird here.
-you actually read this to the end
-you don't have a problem when I send you my cell number to text.
-you're a liberal who thinks extreme liberals are funny.
-you think people scared of Oakland is silly.
-you're poly or poly friendly
-you can send a message that isn't 1 or 2 lines
-If we are a match above 80% you should think about it. If we're above 90% you should do it just so we can squeal like schoolgirls about all the things we have in common, like breathing and our love for "dance-off" movies.
