But if I message you, I'm transparent. I note that I am in an "Open Relationship" right up top there, and it means that rather than trick you and reveal over dessert on Date 3 that I'm seeing other women, I let you know upfront that I practice ethical non-monogamy. My "status" is not for everyone, I know.
It's also not what defines me as a person.
I've continued to grow and appreciate the vibrancy of this city-- what do they tell us, "You must live in NYC at least once in your life." Who am I to disagree with good advice?
After years in DC, I celebrated my five year anniversary in the city at the beginning of October 2015. I enjoy it here.
This might be a little too optimistic and chipper, but when you've worked in Siberia, fled a coke-dealing father to live in a truck stop as a child, and gotten run out of paradise by a corrupt island dictator, you tend not to complain.
It wasn't quite Jerry Maguire, but I was pleasantly surprised that my "who's with me" brought a team and several clients (I didn't poach, the contract ended) with me (but still no goldfish).
Autonomy is one helluva Benefit.
Ya, I'd say I have "make people comfortable and be yourself" down pat.
In NY, this politeness seems particularly pronounced, as it appears "thank you" and "Excuse us" shocks.
Not satisfied with that? Sorry, but site analytics of this section on OKC have proven it to have high levels of eye-bounce.
Sadly, my parents didn't own a Mac and I liked girls too much that I didn't "want to become a nerd."
I regret my unfinished project, especially considering the success of RPGs and Rockstar Games, and the multi-billion dollar gaming industry.
you like wine and want some suggestions;
you're friendly to ethical non-monogamy;
you don't believe that meeting for tea/coffee=picking out china patterns;
you ARE NOT bored. Why people say 'if you are bored' here is beyond me. You have expectations for those with whom you expend your valuable time and likely hoped they reached out to you with interest, not ennui;
you have baggage, but at least it's properly tagged.
