I'm a polyamorous trans guy in a wonderful open relationship with the genderqueer of my dreams (bluntingedges). I'm incredibly shy and somewhat reclusive. I'm broken and I appreciate other broken people, however you define that. If you consider yourself wholly sane, you probably won't have patience with me, nor I with you. I like geeky things, and would love to meet people to come play Rock Band with me. I get anxious and prefer to do things like hang out with people I know playing video games or watching a movie.
I'm also looking for people to make music with. I'm very shy about it, but I've been taking guitar more seriously recently, though I have a long way to go. I have a bass and want to learn to play it better, but I never keep my motivation up because I have few opportunities to play with others. I'm not good enough to look for a band or anything like that - but it could be a fun element to hanging out.
I'm queer more than any other sexual identity descriptor, but I don't mind saying I'm bisexual because it's a stigmatized word and doesn't deserve to be. I tend to be attracted to gender-variant people, especially masculine-spectrum people assigned female at birth.
I am compassionate, intense, and subtle
It's funny that I assume this question is about work, when I have so much of a problem with the societal expectations laden in the whole "what do you do?" question. What am I doing? I'm healing, and by healing myself I am healing the world. I'm marking time, because so often treading water is all I can manage. Sometimes I dip under.
I co-run a support group which is incredibly fulfilling, and probably the only reason I have a social life.
Maybe it's partly that I am not afraid to be meta in social situations. I couldn't survive them otherwise. When I'm anxious, I try to talk about it if at all possible. When I like someone, I say so (as long as I'm not in a situation where I fear that would be inappropriate... and school is such a situation.) When I sense that someone's upset or that I've put my foot in my mouth, I say so. It's the only way I survive.
I like things that challenge me or relax me. In movies, I tend to be a fan of the surreal. I appreciate subtlety more than anything else. In my netflix queue I have a strict rotation between different sides of myself. I like conspiracies, but only if they carry some message applicable in the real world. I don't like made-up political intrigue that doesn't challenge any existing system or situation. I re-read Ursula K LeGuin's books on average once a year - same with L.M. Montgomery, but that's just junk food reading. I didn't list many of my favorite movies because the list is just too long.
I am a picky eater and can cook almost nothing. I live on sunflower seeds and toast and pizza when I can afford it. I like most desserts and love to go out to breakfast.

I don't know, I have trouble with this list for some reason. I have too many or too few things to say.
Also, I'd want to be able to hang out in a group, with someone else I know. I have social anxiety and that makes it easier.
Don't message me if you say things like "get over it." I am suspicious of functional people's capacity to tolerate my ups and downs without getting impatient or resentful, but I wouldn't mind being proved wrong.
