My self-summary
I'm just another tortured artist with a job selling sex toys.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm constantly on the lookout for brilliant people, so that I can bring them back to my lair, feed them, ply them with booze, and steal their genius.

But really.

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.
I’m really good at
Communicating though frantic gestures. Gifts. Noticing the ways in which even the media I like is problematic (although I probably won't point it out to you unless you bring it up first). Cutting classical texts down to 90 minutes for performance. Making literary jokes on social media that ten people will find uproariously funny and everyone else will roll their eyes at. Having fun getting lost.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm laughing loudly at something. I laugh a lot, often inappropriately.

Also, a lot of people probably look at me and think, "Ugh, fucking hipster."
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books and plays:
True Love (Charles L. Mee), Autobiography of Red and everything else Anne Carson touches, Melancholy Play, Self-Help (Lorrie Moore), The IHOP Papers, Love Poems (Anne Sexton), any and all T.S. Elliot, The Bell Jar, Endgame, The Waves, Embassytown, Whipping Girl, I Love Dick, Passing, Nightwood, They Call Me Mad Dog, Written on the Body.

Movies: But I'm A Cheerleader, Lock, Stock, And Two Smoking Barrels, A Midwinter's Tale, old movie musicals, Ghost World, Brazil

Shows: I watch Slings and Arrows over and over again.
Also: Parks and Rec, Orange is the New Black, Last Week Tonight, Degrassi: The Next Generation. (I wish that last one was a joke. It is so far from being one.)

Music: The Dresden Dolls, The Mountain Goats, Neutral Milk Hotel (basically whatever I liked in college), jazz standards, David Bowie, the dude who plays live organ music at Moonlight Rollerway

Food: millions of cups of coffee as far as the eye can see, really good produce, curry, cayenne pepper on everything, spring rolls, cinnamon rolls
Six things I could never do without
coffee, access to nature, good conversation, interesting art, compatriots who give a shit, terrible gay media
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Plays. I get very worked up about them. Elaborate travel fantasies. Inclusivity. How relationships work. The brilliance of my friends. Old-timey novels.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably in a rehearsal. Or I'm with friends, having an intense conversation about love, art, or social justice - after which we will turn on the tv and make fun of The L Word. Or I'm out walking, night hiking, or seeing something arty. Or I'm at home with my gent and some takeout. In any case, there is probably good beer. I'm a bit of a beer hound.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once killed a man in a duel.
You should message me if
You like to go on dorky, activity-based dates. Drinks are fun; mini golf, outdoor movies, museum visits, roller skating, beach days, tipsy trips to the used bookstore, picking a part of town to get lost in, cake baking, and hikes with picnic baskets are much, much better.

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.
The two of us
