The idea is to make the world a better place and experience a lot of laughter, fun, and joy along the way, while also navigating the existential weirdness with as much grace and self-awareness as possible. Care to join me in this important mission?
I'm open to long-term connections, but I'm not interested in monogamy or the possessiveness that defines most relationships. I also don't want to place limits on anyone else. This doesn't adhere to the dominant societal conventions, I realize.
What is something that people are surprised to find out about you? That I'm from Louisiana. A lot of people deem my accent to be insufficiently hickish according to their notion of such things.
If you could have a dinner party and invite any 4 people, dead or alive, who'd be coming? Oscar Wilde, Mae West, Russell Brand, and Juliette Binoche, with whom I would eventually sneak away.
What kind of person are you attracted to? I like people who enjoy taking advantage of the fun things that Portland and the surrounding area have to offer. People who laugh a lot. Feminists who rejects the impositions of the patriarchy. Generous hedonists and polite societal non-conformists. Opinionated, fun-loving brainiacs with high self-esteem and high libidos.
What songs would be on the soundtrack of your life? "Another Sunny Day" by Belle & Sebastian. "Reasons" by Built to Spill.
I consider myself an open-minded person, but my deal breakers are bigots and the criminally insane.
Design your ideal mate: the brain of Mae West and the body of you. (Perhaps also your brain.)
The first section I turn to in the Mercury is Letters. I read it in order, saving Savage Love for last.

The Thing I hate about Portland is? the lack of natural predators. The thing I love about Portland is? the enthusiastic creativity.

If I found a million dollars on the side of the road, I would pay off my mortgage, donate some to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU, then travel.
