Demographic

31 years old, male, kinsey 2

Goals

Leaning very strongly toward wanting kids

Type of Guy

Zest for life / high hedonic setpoint, really into epistemic cooperation in the sense of strong injunctions against manipulation/witholding (as well as all the other "believing true things is hard" stuff), my "golden rule" / kantian intuitions run very deep so many asymmetries are on thin ice.

Seeking

Woman, romance, spouse, housemate

In Berkeley CA

Unclear where to buy house / raise kids, though, and willing to travel a bunch for the first few months of dating a serious primary/coparent candidate.

Swoonworthy traits

Irony is poison. I admire anyone who's above average in earnestness.

  • How to threatmodel asymmetriees in romance: like agency, intensity (energy, voice volume), your favorite big five trait, status/prestige, IQ, libido, etc.
  • Affection styles / love languages
  • Your (least?) favorite failure mode of "Radical Honesty" -adjacent practices
