Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I left my job that keeps me living out of state for most of the
year. I'm back to being a year round St. Louis resident. I have
also made changes in my dating/relationship direction. This last
year, I had two potential LTR that ended abruptly. No bad feelings
towards each other. Partly due to my working/living out of state,
and also we didn't make it through the adjustments couples go
through when trying to graft their lives together. In the end, I
decided to go in a direction that several of my friends have. I
have become committed to being polyamorous.
People give this title many meanings. For me, it's about making
strong connections with others and excepting that I can give and
receive many things from more than one person/partner/lover. It
means I am not trying to direct or be directed towards a specific
agenda. I prefer things develop organically without manipulation.
It also means I don't need to end/destroy a current bond to start a
I believe most people put so much pressure on themselves and their
loved ones to live up to this idea of what a relationship is
supposed to be,and to attain. When things change, we see it as a
failure. I prefer to see it as a shift, a change, but not
necessarily an ending.
So, if we exchange messages, I hope we see our common interest,
enjoy the idea of sharing new interest, and be open to what
develops between us.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working too much, although I have managed quite a few hikes this
year. Enjoying nature when, I can. Considering that I work as an
industrial painter, I see an incredible amount of wildlife.
Basically all the creatures connected to the Mississippi river.
Lots of aquatic birds, reptiles, and unfortunately, Asian carp.
Pulling myself away from the internet enough to plant my nose in a
No longer working 60 hour weeks. I have predictable weekends free
for social activities.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Dealing with extreme personalities, listening, being a good
confidant, and friend, making a good brunch, wildlife photography,
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I really do not have a clue.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Books; All of Patrick McGinley's books, Bill Bryson, A Pen Warmed-
up in Hell by Mark Twain. Most well researched books on history,
particularly the one's with behind the scenes activities by our
government. Movies include documentaries, plus Coen brothers, Peter
Jackson's LOTR, and I plan to see the new movie on Lincoln. I'm a
big NPR listener, and for about the last two years, little to no
tv. Music ranges from some rock, ballads, Celtic, folk, Classical,
opera and others. I love most ethnic foods from Mexican to Indian.
Recently enjoyed a raw (ish) food dinner with friends. Red wine,
and mimosas along with some micro beers.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Nature, camera, family, friends, newspapers, natural bodies of
water, and coffee.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I may be at home recovering from the week, having a friend or two
over, or getting out for dinner and entertainment. I enjoy my
neighborhood (Tower Grove South) and all that it has to offer. so I
would enjoy showing it off to someone new.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Well, perhaps this is judgmental of me, but when I see selfies
taken in the bathroom, I can be extremely critical. Tacky bathroom
decor is a game ender. ;-)
But wait!! There's more!! So as not to eliminate this opportunity
to date me, please note correct answers on two questions here. The
glove turned inside out fits on the opposite hand, and the sun is
larger than the moon.
Last private thing I'll admit is that I can be a self deprecating
smart ass. But usually not at the same time ;-)
