I sometimes have long conversations with homeless people.
I am Blunt. I think this is a good thing.
Sometimes I foot my put in my mouth. Hehehehehe, that wasn't even on purpose!
I have a ridiculously loud laugh. I am proud of this fact.
I cut my own hair.
I am extremely driven career-wise but I still like to live a fairly spontaneous lifestyle.
I live for crazy adventures that sound completely unbelievable, for example I once swam with a Bull Shark by accident (these are the most aggressive type of shark in the world, although thankfully this one was really friendly). *yes I have a picture*
I got a degree in something I don't really use but I'm still glad I did it.
I'm currently in the process of training to be a ninja and an astronaut. I believe that in the coming climate and economic change the world will soon have a high demand for ninja astronauts.
Also I'm a dinosaur. My favorite color is Azure. My favorite tree is Birch. And my favorite Fruit is the raspberry.
I'm crazy about my Mom.
I'm currently in a long-term, committed, POLY relationship with UmaWren. So we can totally meet up, but you need to be ok with the whole poly thing.

The wonder that is New people and places.
I know that's 7. Deal with it. Notice math is not on the list.
Feminism and Queer theory/culture. How to combat privilege/nationalism/patriarchy/all the other bullshit and isms that people deal with every day. How to be an effective ally without dipping into appropriation. How much in-fighting I see between people in alternative communities and how I can steer discourse away from that sinkhole. How weird i feel about the fact that I'm a stocky bearded guy who identifies and feels infinitely more feminine than I outwardly appear. How strange it is that my wife and I are both queer, yet we present as straight, and how to maintain my queer identity within that structure.
I also think about new technology a lot and how most of it seems to come straight from Star Trek, which is wicked. I had an astronomy professor who gave lectures on how different Star Trek technologies could actually work. He wore thick glasses, a pocket protector, and listened to SLAYER. I love that man.
I spend way too much time thinking about the coming economic/energy/climate collapse and what I would subsequently do in a post-apocalyptic scenario. But on the plus side I know a bit about field medicine and basic engineering and agriculture, so it ain't all bad.
You strike up conversations with strangers on public transit.
You love your Mom.
You love animals and the outdoors.
You don't take yourself too seriously.
You are driven.
*Being into some musical instrument is a plus but not a requirement, other bonuses include: Being into nerdy things, being a Habs fan, being petite with fair eyes, facial/armpit hair (no sweat if you can't grow any though, obviously).
Keep in mind, nothing on this list is a requirement, Some of my best relationships have been with people I never would have expected.
I'm currently in a long-term, committed, POLY relationship with a lovely young woman. So we can totally meet up, but you need to be ok with the whole poly thing (and ideally also into it).
If you happen to know how to play the Game of Thrones board game and want to come play with us (even if it's just that) we're always looking for more people! (we're both a bit addicted to that game)

Obvious disclaimer that you should have sorted out by now:
If you are racist/homophobic/transphobic/misogynist/etc/etc/etc then please don't message me.
Also sending me one sentence about how you'd like to lick my asshole or whatever will never garner a response.
