My self-summary
NOTE: I have reached polysaturation and am not currently seeking other partners. Thanks.

I am a curvy, geeky, and nerdy smarty-pants who is damn proud of her academic achievements. Intellectual pursuits, namely English language and literature are my passion and vocation, which explain my voracious appetite for reading and intense enjoyment of research and analysis. Share your knowledge with me, teach me something, and/or let's learn together. Challenge my mind for smart is sexy!

Polyamory is working fairly well for me. I'm enjoying dating but am still looking for someone with whom I share crazy good chemistry. Due to childbirth and maternity leave, I took about 18 months off of dating to deeply bond with my daughter (she is so incredibly CUTE!) and adjust to being a parent (OMG, I rock at this). I am ready to meet more people, get to know them, make new friends, find new lovers, and have as much fun (platonic and otherwise) as possible in the process.
What I’m doing with my life
I am thoroughly convinced that if I stop learning new things, I will die. I work as an English tutor at a local college, so I get paid to be a pedantic grammarian and expand my knowledge. Therefore, I have collected five degrees so far and am researching graduate schools (M.A. in English) to begin in the Fall of 2017.

I also work two passive online side gigs as an Avon Independent Sales Representative (started 6/29/16) and an Amazon seller (mostly books) to help supplement my meager income from being a permanent, part-time state employee at a community college while I look for a permanent, full-time job either with the government or private sector. (I love my students and the merits of my work, but the pay is just meh and I get zero benefits.)

After earning my master's degree, I plan to become an adjunct English professor online and/or in the evenings to supplement my day job. With luck, my students will appreciate my liberal politics, unnaturally colored hair, tattoos, and honest, open approach to teaching and be inspired to love English as much or more than I do.
I’m really good at
Academia (GPA: 3.846 overall; 3.95 in major, summa cum laude)
Cooking (I enjoy making tasty food and being loved for it.)
Foreign languages (C'est la meme chose. Mein Hut, der hat drei Ecken. )
Intellectual chats (Let's cuddle, talk all night, and bond until dawn.)
Parenting (My daughter is teaching me so much about myself!)
Research (I can easily find information on just about anything.)
Writing (I have mastered resume types and MLA style.)
The first things people usually notice about me
Unnaturally colored hair (pink, blue, and green so far)
Sense of humor

The six things I could never do without
1. My little family (husband, daughter, and dog).
2. Netflix, Amazon Prime, and other streaming services.
3. Tutoring clients (I absolutely adore my work and helping people.)
4. Polyamory (Less boredom; more connections, love, and sex.)
5. Friends who are "feminist as fuck." Love you guys!
6. Sleep; alone, in my dark and quiet bedroom.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Becoming a better person
Making more money
Building up my self-esteem
Whittling away at my "To Do" list
Helping people
Academic improvement and mastery
The art of classy swearing
Getting out of debt
Eating healthier
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with my husband and daughter, out on a date, at a concert, hanging out with friends, or spending some much-needed downtime with Netflix and a healthy snack (usually watermelon or Greek yogurt with fruit and almonds).
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have psoriasis, a genetic skin condition, which causes small red, scaly patches to appear. It is harmless, painless, and innocuous. Thank you in advance for your acceptance and understanding. Telling me I'm beautiful, pretty, sexy, etc. tells me you don't mind it.
You should message me if
You are super cool, feminist (as fuck?), kind, patient, insist on consent, consistently practice safer sex (I am allergic to latex), are at least a little bit romantic (flowers and little gifts are so nice), and are matched to me at 80% or better (that tends to bode well for offline compatibility). You want to get to know me and form a friendship before becoming intimate. I am into polyamory, not polyfuckery; there is a HUGE difference!
