I'm happiest when I'm directing a play, so I try to be doing that as much as possible. In my perfect world, I'd spend the majority of my time writing and workshopping with my rad collection of collaborators.
I'm a sweet lady with a lot of feelings about etiquette, a deadpan delivery, and a loud cackle.
My sexual identity is hasbian. Or invert.
I'm poly. (Even though I'm poly, I don't really like the Renaissance Faire, and Doctor Who makes me feel kind of icky. It's okay if you like them, though. I cleave to the stereotype in other ways.)
My dance card is relatively full, between work, plays, people I like, and being a big old introvert. I'm figuring out how to be a goofy romantic with a limited time budget.
I teach sex ed to adults and make dick jokes on the internet for money. I didn't expect to work in this field, but I love being able to help people feel comfortable around a subject that can be so scary to talk about.
Also, a lot of people probably look at me and think, "Ugh, fucking hipster."

You want to be my date to a play, or to many plays.
You can be a bit of a homebody. Going out and doing things is great. Snacks and movies are also great.
You flag left. Better yet, you have LOTS OF COMPLICATED FEELINGS about how that intersects with your politics. I appreciate my fellow overthinkers.
Any partners you have are basically happy for you to be dating someone else. If you would describe your partner's feelings about your nonmonogamy as "grudgingly willing" or worse, then we're not a good match.
