I'm a bit of a homebody. I do like going out and trying new things, I just like some re-centering time in between. Neither "introvert" nor "extrovert" describes me very accurately: I like being around people and get sad when I don't, but familiar ones in small groups are best.
Feminism and anti-racism are not optional. I don't need you to be actively involved with social change groups (I'm not), just give a shit about how what you say and do affects others. I wish this went without saying.
Last but not least: I'm nonbinary. My pronouns are they/them. If you're puzzled by this it's okay to ask me friendly questions about it. It's not okay to ignore it. (Casually getting my pronouns right is a great way to show that you read my profile!)
I'm bad at remembering things if I don't write them down, but good at remembering to write them down.
I don't really make time to watch things on my own, but I keep up on Steven Universe when I remember, and my roommate has me going through Bojack Horseman (which is basically the opposite among American cartoons). I don't think about movies very much, so I probably haven't seen your favorite yet.
I prefer stories that charm me to ones that scare me. I also like getting warm fuzzies and being made to think. Come to think of it, that's basically my taste in people, too.
Most of the music I like is lyrical and upbeat. If you noticed that describes pop, rap, rock, and bluegrass equally accurately: exactly. Strong basslines (or bass voices) make me melt. When I'm home alone I blast jazz standards and harmonize with Ella.
Oh yeah, and I'm unapologetically on the McElroy podcast bandwagon. Ask me about my disproportionate fondness for TAZ background characters. (Also, Shrimp Heaven Now.)
2. The sort of friend I can talk to without words.
3. Regular access to sunshine and breezes.
4. Something to doodle and take notes on.
5. Affectionate touch.
6. Comfortable clothes.
That said, I've dated straight people pretty happily in the past, so if you think you can convince me your orientation doesn't contradict your interest, try me.
You don't need to be my one and only. I have a sweet partner who lives too far away, and I'm open to adding someone nearby but not replacing them.
