By which I mean soulmates. Not whales.
EDIT: Scotland for a bit in August, if that explains why I'm perusing your profile, Caledonian friends.
"Lifetime learner" - sans irony. Obsessive listener of Radiolab. I SOAK UP data and I think the kinship of curiosity is the best of kinships. Audiophile, cinephile, bibliophile. I'm pretty ruthless at

Wrapped things up with my ex of four years in January, and I've told myself that I'm not getting into anything monogamous or long-term until, at a minimum, this coming January. God, that's now fast approaching, and I'm enjoying myself too much. So we'll just see, I guess. OKC forced me to opt into "hookup" but I'm way more into genuine friendships-with-benefits. I'll make you dinner and we can drink wine and watch shows or go out and play pub trivia. And maybe sprinkle in other activities, if you're down - I'm very GGG, for what it's worth. Just non-exclusively.
