I'll give this a try!

1) My age and location: 35 and based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
2) My self-labels: This isn't something I have a lot of practice at, but: Writer, poet, cis female, Feminist, sensitive, clear communicator, perceptive, neuroatypical in several ways. I Googled other words for 'explainer' and 'decoder' came up. I like that.
3) My posts usually fall into the following categories: I talk about my life which tends to fall into musings about mental health, long-distance relationships, whether to keep my current job or move, poetry readings I take part in, working through past memories.
4) My favorite things to read on my friends list are: The above! Um... Childhood memories, thought processes, mental health, friendship musings [with backstory, not just "Ugh, I hate Sam" with me not knowing who Sam is]. The story of how you got to where you are.
5) My friendship dealbreakers are: I suppose the usual isms. People who disrespect me personally. People who talk to me on my LJ in a way I have expressed that I am uncomfortable with. And people who never speak to me. Ever. Like, in over a year.
6) I post entries on average once every [day, 2 days, week, etc]: I aim for twice a week. Sometimes I only manage once.
7) I consider myself more knowledgeable than the average person (average from people I've known) on these topics: Communication, the workings of depression and recovery cycles, public speaking and audience response.
8) If everyone alive would agree to change their behavior in a single way regarding ONLY me, I would want it to be: I get caught up in miscommunication a lot because people don't listen/read the specifics of what I'm saying. So if people would respect me enough to listen and treat me the way I would like to be treated, that would be awesome. Repeatedly saying the same things gets to a person after a point.

Very late to this, but it sounds as though we post about similar things and like to read similar posts. Could we try this?

Yes, that would be lovely! I'll add you now.
on communication, social justice, intimacy, consent, friendship & other relationships, spirituality, gender, queerness, & dreams. Expect to find curse words, nudity, (occasionally explicit) talk of sex, and angry ranting, but NEVER slurs or sexually violent language. I use TW when I am aware of the need and on request.
