My self-summary
Open-minded, easygoing, feminist, hippie, committed to friends and family, honest, loyal, nonjudgemental, hardworking, bad at online communication.

I'm ultimately interested in finding something serious and long-term, but in the mean time I can enjoy and appreciate a wide range of kinds of relationships, and am open to pretty much anything so long as everyone's on the same page.

If I message you it's because I enjoyed your profile, find you attractive, and would be interested in meeting up and seeing if we have actual chemistry in real life. If at any point in our messaging I have convinced you that I am interesting enough to warrant grabbing a drink with, please let me know! Since different people prefer different amounts of messaging before they feel comfortable meeting in person I will often hold off on asking for the actual date for longer than I personally need to avoid scaring off someone who would prefer more time.
What I’m doing with my life
Working (I'm a software engineer), hanging out with friends pretty much whenever I'm not working. My friends are by far the most important part of my life.

I love activities! Skiing, snowboarding, rock climbing, scuba diving, sky diving, going to the beach, theater, comedy, concerts, etc. Always open to trying something new.
That said, I also have a huge appreciation for a night in watching netflix or playing board games.

I love meeting new people and going on spontaneous adventures.
I’m really good at
Buying books faster than I can read them
Climbing onto roofs and up trees (getting back down is another story...)
Swiping my metrocard on the first try
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love movies that make you think or have a twist at the end.

I'm also into theater and love going to shows, though I don't do it nearly as often as I'd like to. If you can recommend some good shows for me to see, let me know!

On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging with friends - usually either out drinking at a bar, in smoking a bowl and watching a movie, or off exploring Mars.
You should message me if
You are enthusiastic, energetic, and love life. You're confident but not cocky. You're an optimist who prefers to see the best in people and in life. You're easy-going, take things as they come, and are always open to a new experience.

You want to go see theater and/or comedy with me.

You want to keep things casual, at least for a while, and not rush into anything too serious, but are ultimately looking for something serious eventually. I had once assumed that any 'serious' relationship would be monogamous, but I no longer feel like that is *necessarily* the case. I am, however, looking for someone to be my primary partner, and I theirs.
That said, I'm not totally disinterested in a more casual situation - I suspect I could be happy in a variety of arrangements, what's most important to me is that everyone is honest about what they want (both with their partner and themselves) and everyone is happy with the arrangement.
