A. I have recently been ejected from a long term (3.6 year) relationship. It will take some time to fully recover, but that doesn't mean I am completely damaged or emotionally stunted; I just need a little tenderness and understanding in that area.
2. I am looking for a reasonably close-by source(s) of and receptacle(s) for affection, companionship, and company. Sex is nice (and I am very sexual) but not required. Short-term is assumed, but if something happens to blossom, I'll gladly accept it.
III. I'm a proud gamer. I write my own table-top games, develop my own role-playing systems, and will sink hours into the right form of electronic entertainment. For example: I recently spent a total of roughly 34 hours over the course of a week or so on a "quick" game of Civilization V. I won in 1952, via diplomac votes, by a huge margin.
Δ. I am an avid reader and writer of narrative fiction. See below for details.
5. I am more of a bi-curious male than a bisexual one, but I have been hurt very badly by men that I've dated in the past, so I will be very critical and particular about seeing someone with a penis. Sorry if that offends you, but it doesn't mean I'm not worth a try.
