Next time in Paris will be July 15 to Aug 6.
Briefly, I've been alone too long and would love to change that. I am a good guy with an interesting life I want to share. I'm an artist, designer, photographer and educator. It would be great to meet a smart, funny, handsome, kind and sexy man who is also a reasonable, reliable adult (that's not about age in years.) Looking for a man who is working hard to be the real deal. If he has made mistakes and learned from them, even better. Art, photography, design and a sense of social responsibility and justice are big parts of my life. No drugs or alcohol. I am very oral; it all starts, keeps going and ends with kissing.
Me? Somewhat unusual, talented, intense, silly, charming, gracious, infuriating, tactless, diplomatic. I can be gregarious, shy, generous, introspective, impatient, willful. Definitely a top, I'm HIV-. I have seen trouble and created my own. I don't drink, have done that enough for a couple of lifetimes. I'm glad to be alive and am grateful for second chances. I can also be extremely funny and perverse. I have old friends I love but I need to be surprised by someone new. I have traveled a good deal and look forward to more. I ended a long-term relationship a while ago and want to practice what I have learned about love to date. I have an interesting and unpredictable professional life that has included art, design, journalism, government, academia, and my own business. I work very hard, become engrossed in ideas, have a flexible mind and love solving problems. I appreciate beauty, popular culture, the performing arts, and technology and what they reflect about our lives. I like to entertain and cook. I value difference, openness, honesty, curiosity, kindness, compassion, courage, a great sense of humor and a greater kisser.
You? Masculine, out, experienced in long term relationships, successful, talented and creative, sensitive sensual and independent. If you are in the process of becoming something new; if you are independent but available for love; if you work hard and seek challenge; if you have a wild and dark sense of humor; if you are an engaged bottom who loves to be kissed, held, touched: if you enjoy giving and are able to receive; if you are a good listener; if you are articulate and understand the art of disagreement; if you are committed to finding some truth in your life and its contradictions; if you are fascinated by the details, if you want to understand the complexity of the big picture; if you are fascinated by popular culture and the new; if the arts are near the center of your life; if you enjoy fashion; if you are creative, intelligent, curious about the world; if you are still shy despite your successes; if you have seen and made your own troubles; if you are handsome, affectionate, sexy; if you go to the gym but it does not rule your life or your thoughts about others; love to kiss; if you are all or some of these and attracted to me, I am likely to be drawn to you.
Dealbreakers: Pictures of you in many groups of people who are just like you; pictures of you with cats (I am very allergic); 50+% of your pictures are with women on what would appear to be "dates" if I didn't know better and you don't indicate that you are new to sex with men; all of your pictures include cocktails; more than 20% of your pictures lack clothing; pictures with dirty, messy interiors in the background; pictures that feature many gyms or bars in the background; other evidence of active addictions....
