I'm in a stressful and busy period in my life, so it may take a while to get in touch, and I'm more likely to be interested in meeting up if we're doing something I'd want to be doing anyways. I'm especially interested in seeing or dancing to music, hardcore yoga, rock-climbing, and fire play. I'd love to meet some musicians - I'm hoping to start a proper gigging band again, once I meet musicians I'm sufficiently excited to play with.
(Worth mentioning, because I seem to be confusing some people: I see OKC as a really good algorithm for meeting people you're likely to get along with and finding people with certain shared interests. That means if I message you, it isn't necessarily because I want to date or have sex with you; if I say I'd like to play music together or go rock climbing, there's a pretty good chance that all I mean is play music, or go rock climbing)
Also, I was in a very different place in my life when I did the bulk of my OKC questions, and I was looking for very different things at the time, so some of what OKC thinks about me is inaccurate (e.g. I'm actually very love-driven, thank you very much [profile-tab!], but I wasn't looking for a serious relationship at the time and the OKC robot-monkey misinterpreted).
So, tooting your own horn is pretty much required here. Since I have a severe distaste for it, I'm going to list some things my friends have said about me instead: the most idealistic person in the world; considerate; sensitive; weird in all the right ways; sexier than 98 % of people on the planet; naughty little schoolgyrl; an adorable stray with floppy ears and a patchy spot over one eye; sexcellent; way too rambunctious for pants; ridiculously and quite unjustly cute; sweet smile; a gregarious fluid; smart, sexy, and respected by peers and mentors; a really good dyke; irritatingly brilliant and lovely; you are such a weirdo, in all the sweetest ways; I love your wild enthusiasm for life; people sure are enthusiastic about having sex with you!; easy to be yourself around; subsists entirely on pure audacity (I'm especially proud of the last one, given that it came from my friend with a rainbow mowhawk, antithestasia). I also have a friend who graced me with the sentence "I hang out with all these interesting people, like magician and jugglers and fire-eaters and Taz!" and a recent partner told me "You make what I had thought were unreasonably high standards of behavior in a relationship seem perfectly reasonable."
And some phrases I've been stealing from others' profiles, because I like them and they apply to me (in no particular order):
"bohemian, adorkable, and hippie-go-lucky"
"work on developing myself in each moment, physically, spiritually, emotionally, and psychologically."
"I am queer in every sense of the word."
"I'm a feminist and a vegetarian. I have a good sense of humor. I don't think those last two sentences are mutually exclusive."
"I'm insatiable but a little bit ADD"
"[I'm really good at] Cuddling and making strange sounds in the place of proper sentences. Getting distracted by shiny objects."
"DO message me if I've messed up in my profile somewhere and you just need to tell me to check my..., privileges. Seriously, call me on my shit."
Big, important parts of my personality and time are spent on: music, yoga, feminism, social justice activism, learning and teaching, reading and writing, art and culture, travel, dancing to loud thumpy music in interesting and unexpected locations, finding/making/eating yummy vegfood.
Oh, and I switched my profile from "bi" to "Straight," because, quite honestly, the vast majority of guys who send messages on OKC are annoying and problematic (my sincere apologies if I am "that guy" to anyone reading this!), and I'm sick of getting messages from them. Bi- isn't really the word I most identify with anyways. But, if you happen to be male/masculine identified, feminist, and think we have enough in common that messaging me is worth your time, please do!
1) human contact/touch
5) all the varied emotions and experiences we tend to ball together and call "love"

Wake me if you like me;
wake me if you want me;
wake me if you need another poem.

I'd be really interested in what my friends call a "Schrödinger's Date," where we meet up and do things, but don't know in advance whether it's romantic or friendly or what. I'd especially love someone to pair up with for rock climbing or seeing some live music, good vegan restaurants, or thrifting.
Worth mentioning: now that I'm here, I'm way busier than I expected to be! I am not on OKC often, and I don't have time to write a lot of messages or do a lot of planning, so just go ahead and message me, and maybe invite me to something.
