I'm a married, poly, geeky, kinky, liberal, feminist government
I'm currently looking for a second partner (with the knowledge and encouragement of my wife), and love meeting new people. Ideally, that person would be someone local, but I'm open meeting someone who is in town intermittently too. That being said, I tend to be tightly-scheduled on weeknights, so like to plan things several days in advance.
I work for the D.C. city government, and love my job, but love doing other stuff more.
I love tabletop RPGs, but hardly ever play them, due to the recession-induced breakup of my group. Hope springs eternal for a new one, though! I'm also a big movie buff (all kinds from art house to mainstream).
I'm happily married to HelDC since December 2010,
and turned 30 in January of 2013. I admittedly look a lot older though. I think of myself as "zaftig" by which I mean "fat." And there's nothing wrong with that--which is to say down with the fat-haters. :-) I'm also working on my physical fitness (though, I don't really care if that affects my weight, as long as I'm healthy).
I have a fairly surreal sense of humor, am very ADD, and considered pretty serious by people who know me professionally. My friends laugh at this idea.
I'm higher-strung than I should be, but I'm working on that.
I'm still on here an average of once every 1-2 months, so, really
please just email me at t h a n e dot t u t t l e @ g mail dot com
(just remember to remove the spaces and turn words into
punctuation). It's the best way to get in touch. Link me your
profile though, and I'll definitely come check you out. :-)
I'm also Thane on Fet.
Finally, a note to guys: I identify as heteroflexible, by which I mean that I find 95% of women in my age range attractive, and about 5-10% of guys in my age range attractive. This is something I'm still exploring, but don't be surprised if I don't reply to your message, or if my answer is, "sorry, not interested."
Funny how that works.
I'm also trying to learn everything I can about everything I've
heard of, stay close to my good friends, and have fun doing all of
Also, Cooking, throwing dinner parties (hey, maybe I should do one of those again!), random trivia, swedish massage
A couple of friends have said I missed my calling as a 19th century snake-oil peddler, though I like to think of myself as more of a raconteur.
I'm told I have nice eyes too, but I'm not sure I buy it. And I must admit, despite my non-apparent youth, I've been going bald since I was 15. Que sera sera.
On the more popcorn-ey side: Anita Blake, Dresden Files, Laundry Files
Authors: Charles Stross, John Scalzi, Jim Butcher (three most recent favorites), Hunter S. Thompson, Damon Runyon, Kurt Vonnegut, Ovid, Hemingway, JK Rowling, Laurell K Hamiliton (go Anita Blake!), Jasper Fforde, and Raymond E. Feist (a childhood favorite that's still going).

I love food. I like cooking too. I cook a mean lasagna and decent enchiladas. My weinerschnitzel's not bad, either. And, don't get me started on my made-from-scratch chocolate sour cream cake. It's yummy! More generally, I like just about anything spicy or exotic. I love Tex-Mex, having grown up w/ it, Thai is great, pho noodles are good too. I love Belgian waffles.
- Art (more specifically, great books books and films)
- The Internet (which, I'm told, is for porn (hard to understand,
considering that it is a series of tubes; actually on further
thought, maybe that's not such a stretch...))
- Great libations (good cider, rum, scotch, etc.). I'm also getting into artisanal moonshines.
- Great food and friends to share it with
- Sex + Cuddles
- Air, water, food, etc.
- The cuteness that is embodied by our kittehs
And yes, I know that was more than six.
I've also been tackling the larger philosophical questions in life recently. What will make me happiest? How can I become a better person? How can I become awesomer (yes, I just said that). Things of that nature...
I also spend a lot of time thinking about how to get our disaster of a house in order. We have too much stuff, and are working on how to organize it.
It really depends on the night, though. I tend to stay at home quite a bit. Occasionally, though, things are wild, or at least hedonistic. I really dislike loud bars and clubbing, though (except for the Crucible and Black Rose events, which I've attended only a few of thus far).
Dinner (with a few friends and a few drinks) and a movie is always good. I've been meaning to go to a good hookah bar for a while now, too.
Next, as stated above, I am involved in an open poly relationship with my wife, HelDC. It's fun and works for us. We're both on here, and we have both dated other people. I just want people to be aware of this going in (b/c I just realized OkC may not list me as "seeing someone" on my profile).
Finally, I recently came out on Fet as heteroflexible. If you're a guy on OkC, I'm probably not interested, but feel free to message me anyway.
More generally, you should message me if you're into polyamory, D&D, kink, French cinema, law & government contracts (heaven forbid), generalized randomness, or eating/drinking something yummy while discussing any of the above.
Geeks are welcomed and preferred, of course, but please don't let that make you think that you're unwelcome if you don't consider yourself one.
Also, if you actually would be willing to meet after we get to know each other. I love having long-distance internet friends, but, honestly, I'm really bad at it.
Having something to say also works.
Oh, and if after reading this (or before), you hate my very essence and want to see me wiped from the face of the earth, I'd kinda like to hear about that too.
