I've recently moved from DC down to Woodbridge. It's so lovely to have not one, but two Wawa's within short driving distance. I was already sort of used to the commute, so the transition hasn't been nearly as rough as I feared.
I consider myself a bit of a geek and a borderline dork at times.
What am I looking for?
I would like to find someone who is a bit silly, yet can carry on a conversation about passionate topics. I like talking about beer, but I would like to talk about more than just beer. Tell me your thoughts on the current Supreme Court docket or on the apparent disconnect between feminism and submissive BDSM roles or the amazing new sci-fi/fantasy/noir novel you just finished. I love finding new music, introduce me to a band you love. Favorites I have found this way include Nina Simone, Neutral Milk Hotel and Robin Bullock.
I currently have a partner. I love her dearly and I hope we have many many years together. Right now, I'm not looking for anything terribly serious. I know this cuts down the pool of available partners by something like 99.73%, but polyamory is an essential part of me. I hate the cliche, but when my partners are happy, I'm happy. When my girlfriend tells me about the lovely dinner she made for her husband and how he spoils her rotten, I get all warm and fuzzy inside. I appear to do compersion well. I'm looking for "secondary" types of relationships. I have made the rookie mistake of trying to have two primary type relationships at once and it wasn't fair to anyone. Polyamory: the only relationship type that requires Excel mastery.
Okay, if I haven't scared you off yet, send me a message. :)
Somehow I can't shake
the feeling I might make
a difference to the human race.
I would describe my job a bit more, but I'm fairly certain it is boring enough that doing so would be considered a war crime under the Geneva Convention.
