@JoshRollins I spend a lot of time on graduate school obligations - internship, research, dissertation - so I don't have a ton of time and energy for multiple relationships. This might change for me in the future, but for now I feel polysaturated with my husband and other partner. I'm not actively looking for new connections.
@JoshRollins well, I don't have enough experience to have identified a pattern. I think the number one thing I look for in a potential partner is someone who listens to my point of view and demonstrates overall respect for me and my bodily autonomy. The guy I'm seeing now, I had met him at parties a few times and thought that he was funny, attractive, and easy to talk to, but I didn't give him a second thought until he asked me about the #metoo movement and really listened to what I had to say.
