I am a creature of habit who is infatuated with changing. I am content within my comfort zone, but I greatly enjoy novelty. I am opinionated but open minded, and indulgent but not wasteful. I am a highly logical absurdist, a hopeful realist, and a practical idealist. I'm lazily ambitious and often envious (but rarely jealous.) I'm overly trusting yet perpetually skeptical. I have high hopes and low expectations.
I've been practicing non-hierarchical polyamory for 5 years and I am not single. I am very liberal with my boundaries and don't maintain many agreements outside of completely honest communication and safety related rules. I'm very hesitant to date anyone without a basic understanding of how to be emotionally responsible, self aware, vulnerable and communicative. I would prefer if potential partners have had some experience in a stable polyamorous relationship, but if you haven't, please check out Morethantwo.com for the basics before contacting me with questions about it.
As my day (and sometimes evening) job, I work as a nurse in a residential facility for people with special needs. I've been there 7 years and I absolutely love it.
I own a house in Bensalem where I live with two partners and two cats.
I started a social group for nonmonogamous folks in/around Philly called Polydelphia a few years ago. We have online discussion and local events. I am currently in the process of handing off my responsibilities to this group, as it has outgrown my abilities.
I'm really bad at
spelling, definitions, lying, paying attention, pop culture references, staying the same, being loyal, getting out of bed, monotony, commitment, confrontation, trivia, being on time, puns, packing, using new technology, saying no, being alone, throwing anything away, reading fiction, finishing projects, driving stick, buying things, keeping plants alive, cleaning up after myself, word association games
Don't bother reading the rest of this section, it barely matters.
Music: Really love the folky stuff with a ton of instruments and chorus singing. I usually listen to a lot of local music and XPN. Honestly, though, I've been listening to a ton of mainstream pop recently. Let's call it "market research." You can never go wrong with classic rock or old school hip hop. Some faves are: Tom Petty, Pasty Cline, Cake, Feist, Queen, Regina Spektor, Death Cab for Cutie, 50 Cent, The Postal Service, Tegan & Sara, Rilo Kiley, The Eagles, The Bee Team, The Doors, Vampire Weekend, CCR, Carsie Blanton, Meatloaf, Bright Eyes, Wu Tang, Rolling Stones, Jenny Lewis, Johnny Cash, Journey, Ben Folds, She and Him, Freelance Whales, Givers, The Lumineers, Avett Brothers, Head and the Heart, Brandi Carlile
TV: I have or will probably watch all of: LOST, Arrested Development, Firefly, Dexter, Supernatural, The Guild, Orange is the New Black, Derek, Luke Cage..
Movies: I only go to the theater to see super hero flicks in 3D. Old faves include: The Princess Bride, Natural Born Killers, Harold and Maude, Love Actually, Old School, The Other Sister...I have to much nostalgia for Disney, too.
I barely read books anymore. I sometimes read non-fiction that's pertinent to my lifestyle. I read a ton of stuff online. I like poetry and short stories. Childhood favorites: The Stranger, A Happy Death, Free to be You and Me, My Side of the Mountain, Six of One, The Girl With the Silver Eyes
