I'm also non-monogamous, and tend to be very affectionate. I live with my primary partner and our cattle dog, Leche. Chances are we'd all like to hang out with you, and if you're not comfortable meeting my partner then we probably won't be seeing much of each other. I have a number of partners spread all over the place, but since my last soul-crushing job occupied all hours of the last 15 months I can't say I've maintained those partnerships as well as I'd liked.
Looking to find some community!
At some point in my life I'd really love to live in a sustainable community of some sort. If I ever gather all the necessary skills I'd totally build my own tiny house. I've been offered the opportunity to start my own microdairy back in my hometown, so that's a possibility for the near future... the idea of settling down so soon and so close to home is a little terrifying...
Making weird faces, voices, and sound effects
Making friends with animals
Wrasslin' folks and critters
Eating with my hands even when it's not appropriate
Being shy and awkward
Running around in the woods
Cooking and baking
Eating. Really, really good at eating.
Forgetting everything except the things that don't matter
Being a space cadet
Living in the moment
Things I'm terrible at:
Making small talk
Recalling memories on command
Staying in touch with people from a distance
Movies: Blues Brothers, Children of Men, The Royal Tenenbaums, Death to Smoochy, Kung Fu Hustle, House of Flying Daggers, Blade Runner, Rang De Basanti, Matilda, Princess Mononoke, Silence of the Lambs, Rocky Horror. I have a hard time watching horror movies... but I'm always down for nature documentaries! When I was a kid I would sing and dance along with Cats and whenever my parents asked what I wanted to watch it was usually Lion King or Dragonheart. Poor them.
Shows: I hardly watch TV. If I have access to cable I jump to the cooking channels. Sometimes I watch cartoons like Bob's Burgers, Archer, Adventure Time, or anime. Not really one who follows shows without another person being like "omg you have to watch this with me"...
Music: I listen to just about anything, though it does depend on my mood. Classical, heavy metal, jazz, r&b, hip-hop, folk, old stuff, new stuff, whatever. My fallback is usually bluegrass.
Food: I'll admit, I'm a food snob. But I'll also eat just about anything and everything—waste not, want not! I've eaten plenty of offal and haven't been disgusted by anything yet... well, kidneys taste of piss and I prefer my liver pureed, but y'know. I love animals and I also love to eat them (preferably humanely and locally raised, even more preferably by my own hand), although I respect those who don't.
Just keep the mangos, cashews, and sumac away because I really don't care for itchy lips and assholes. Nobody likes an itchy asshole.

How to not be socially awkward around people I think are cute...
All the things I should be doing instead of sitting on my ass.
Nothing. I'm usually just observing and appreciating the things I see. Semi-nonverbal visual creature.
Why things work the way they do.
What kind of tree/bird/rock is this?!
How beautiful the clouds/mountains/bit of lichen etc. are at the time.
How to be a better person/friend/partner.
If you want to get together and chat over a coffee about queer things, food, science, growing vegetables, animal husbandry, art, polyamory, how to change the world, etc. —SWEET DO IT. I like meeting new people! I prefer outdoor adventures to being stuck in a booth somewhere, but whatever's clever.
I have a bias for good spelling and grammar which I'm working on deconstructing.
Racists, Sexists, Homophobes, etc need not apply. On the other hand, if you want to talk about oppression, let's. I've been missing those dialogues.
Also, I can be shy and sometimes hate sending the first message, so don't be like me...
Aaand if I don't respond immediately, I'm sorry! I get a fair number of thoughtful messages (and a lot of shite, as well) and I get a little bogged down/overwhelmed and let them sit around for a while before I buckle down and bust out a bunch of replies. Definitely have some solid messages from a year ago that I haven't touched yet... I'm sorry! But also not sorry, because this is OKC and I have a life to live.
