My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
WARNING: Whatever you were expecting... I'm not that. Stereotypes are only good for a bad first impression. Whatever you think of me, don't bother. I'm something a little different, and if you shove me in that box there are going to be some awkward bulges.

I am one of the few, the Strange, the ones they warned you about, but not. I'm so much else.
----------------------------------------------------
I am Strange Dave. I eat awesome-sauce for breakfast, and I am uninhibited (or unhinged) by usual standards. As such, normal people are often either impressed or very scared of, and, or for me. Some people tell me I'm enlightened. Others call me a freak. I just think of myself as exceptionally open-minded, not afraid of death, and occasionally willing to flaunt it for a friendly audience or a friendly check. My only fear is not Living while I'm alive, like my father (deceased) and all the people who spend their days trying to Plan the future or being Upset about the past instead of Loving Every Moment of the present.

Before you start making snap judgments, let me offer you this. In reality, I am a genuine and sincere introvert who sometimes acts the extrovert butterfly but is in truth relatively modest, fairly humble and all too often, shy. This entire profile is a playfully written advertisement for my brain and sense of self, not to be taken too literally. Or is it?

I've been called both a Freak of nature and freak of Nurture ... both are pretty accurate, since I'm a contortionist and a masseur. I love my crazy life, and I love the awesome people who grace it, for however long they do. I was raised in a nice Christian home with a lot of love and affection, and so that is my usual mode of behavior once we get past society's contact taboos and cultural negativity training.
I just -oops- outgrew the Antique Christian morality codes imposed on us and started forging my own path through the Present like some kind of free-loving polyglot. Open hearted, inclusive Not exclusive. My love is as a shield, not a cage.

If you're looking for a normal friend or a normal relationship, look elsewhere. I don't play by the rules you're used to. My Brain works a bit differently. My body bends Very differently. My life Runs differently. I'm not interested in nine-to-five jobs or monogamous relationships. I'm not climbing corporate ladders or laying groundwork for children with everyone I date. I have vastly different views on love, sex, relationships, society and Humanity than you.

I am looking for a chosen family, a modern Tribe, but not a hippie commune. Maybe later.

I don't just think outside the box, I live a dodecahedron.

I am a phenomenal companion-person, and I'm looking for partners. Business partners, performance partners, partners in having fun, making art, and um.. other things ... but if we can't be friends, we can't be lovers. Secrets distort truth and I'm not any good at those games. Side note; lately I've been on a radically open communication kick. Creating safe space to discuss anything, from fears to desires without judgement or scorn, setting boundaries that are comfortable and fun, with the purpose of getting the most out of life... And it's working.

the Dave is...
Trouble.
..to some.

But otherwise,
creative, intelligent and insightful;
warm, friendly and empathic;
dangerous, exciting and fun;
Looking for partners in life, love and trouble.

Notice: Available for massage, first time free. Also down to play with fire, practice yoga, make art, conspire to rule the world with new businesses, or sit around tangling up and watching Netflix. If you're learning to do costume prosthetics, I do love playing dress up.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Helping random people with random projects, because i can do pretty much anything and i like to help out.

I cannot believe my luck sometimes. I had this in my profile for a few months...

---------------------------------------------
LOOKING FOR HOUSING.
-With a dance floor I could run yoga classes.
-With an art studio I could run drawing workshops.
-With a metal shop I could do welding / sculpture.
-With a wood shop I could make furniture / stuff.
-With a small secluded room I can do pro massage.
-With a yard area I can do landscaping / gardening.
-With a safe yard I can do fire breathing / spinning.

Any of the above would be nice, as many as possible is cool, tho none are actually required. I'll make do with whatever seems like a good fit, its really more about the people I live with, and finding something affordable / commutable. Anything from West side to east, as long as it's in LA. Best fit might be Burners, might not. Know of something? Pass it on!

For roommates I'd be happy with burners, techies, nerds, students, party-goers, party-throwers, artists, models, performers, actors, yogis or pretty much anyone who is Living their lives and not sitting on idle. I'm a social chameleon, and unless you suck I'm sure we'll get along just fine. Rent between $600-900/month would be nice, private room preferred. House, studio, loft, warehouse, whatever. I'm Open.
----------------------------------------------
--Update--
Got everything on the list. I'm in a house in Glendale with awesome burners who are in the process of changing the world. Came with All of the amenities I was looking for, including 95% of the combined personality types and lifestyles I was interested in being around. I've already built a great garden at the house, and a hot tub is soon on the list.
...

I'm not a relationship entree, but I make a fantastic appetizer, side dish or dessert. Single but unavailable. I'm in a committed open relationship with... myself. Luckily, myself is very Compersive, and thus willing to share me with awesome people and takes pleasure at my happiness, anywhere I find it. If I love you, I'll treat you the same way. Be free to Love.

--Update-- I'm looking for Tribe, but I've recently been shown that I haven't quite ruled out having children with the right match. In general, I'm only looking for a primary partner in so much as a lover I could cohabitate with, get a little domestic and build a garden with the option of seeing other people.

I'm more and less busy in LA right now, and feeling an itch to travel. If you think I should spend one or two months in your area, tell me so and I'll line up a sublet for my room. If you can help me line up some work while I'm in your town, even better. Working vacations are my favorite, because I suck at being idle. Just went to Portland for a week and would be happy to go back. Otherwise considering San Francisco or New York as prime options for my next trip..

I'm an art model, and plugged into every side of the industry. I even used to organize and host a sporadic Figure Drawing Club at my place. Now that I'm in a house with a cozy studio, I can do so again, whenever the urge strikes. If you'd like to pose nude for us, or come to paint the unveiled men and women who grace my stage, say hi and encourage me to set it up. It's a labor of love, and once the model is paid I'll be lucky if I break even. If you hear of someone needing a male model, get in touch and I'll give you my website.

Yoga classes. Not taking them, but running them. I am preparing to teach Ashtanga Yoga in my home studio, once I get back into practice. $15 to come get your ass kicked and only yourself to thank for it. To that end, I am on the hunt for a yoga assistant. Your job would be to come early three days a week and make sure I'm up. Who wants free contortion training? Male or female, as long as you'll commit to coming and be willing to try and keep up.

That said, I'm also a natural contortionist. Something about a genetic mutation I share with Abraham Lincoln and just about ten thousand other people on the planet. Makes me special or something, and gives me an easy avenue for a performance outlet. My circus repertoire also includes stiltwalking and breathing fire.

I've been doing performance for about three years now, and one of my favorite outlets is character roles for tv and film. I've been on several shows and shorts, the most recent being The Smiling Man which is winning a bunch of awards at fear film festivals, and Hellevator which will premier this fall on GSN.

Building a massage practice has been very rewarding. I'm a self taught massage artist, been actively practicing my craft for over ten years and these days I'm told that I'm better than most therapists with formal training. People-sculpting is much more fun than working with clay. Message me to book an appointment, ask about intro rates (or first time free).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- Being flexible in every way. I'm a yogi contortionist who believes in constant change and an intense form of relativity. There is no "right" way to live, think, believe or perceive but I'm curious how you do it anyway.

- Bringing change. I am a chaos element. Free of charge. Hang out with me and you'll learn something. Maybe about our activity, or maybe about yourself. I usually see things on several levels of perception, so I can probably offer at least one alternative viewpoint to any situation.

- Making out like a teenager! Just kidding. I kiss like it's performance art, and we're the audience. A slowdance, not a swordfight. Ok, maybe sometimes it is like a swordfight, but the kind where they call it a draw because both fighters come to deeply respect the skill of the other and enjoy the fight so much, that they can't bear to kill them and rob the world of an artiste.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
My eyes are pretty and kind, my touch is warm and gentle, my words are carefully considered, my presence is calming, my smile is infectious, my projects are crazy fun and my legs are really Really long.

Contortionist goofball with a 320 turnout.
a Talent in many fields.
Clearly INTP, except in public.
Empath with healing hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
The door to a man's heart is through his stomach!!
Feed me and I'll come back like a stray cat.
I like it spicier than you do, but that isn't a challenge. Unless a challenge is what you need to get the brass to meet someone off this site. In that case, bring it. When my brow is sweating and my mouth is burning, I probably have a big happy smile. Feed me on a regular basis and you'll have a friend for life.

The best movies and shows come from even better books. For example, read Fight Club and the Game of Thrones series. Epic.

I have a decent TV and about 3 terabytes of movies and shows. If you need a marathon, come on over.

--Fantasy requisites for an Inspired mind: Atlas Shrugged. Ender's Game. The Truth Machine. Dune. A World Out Of Time. Ringworld. Riverworld.
These all include a good mix of fantasy with future tech, human psychology and conceptual morality.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Need an art modeling partner for paid gigs. This isn't just professional, its personal. Work becomes play. I am an artist, a sensualist, a contortionist, and I express it as a muse. What I want is to establish a strong dynamic with a regular partner, so that when we hit the model stand together... the chemistry of our interactions will ignite the souls of the artists and Inspire them to Create. I've been in the industry for a decade, I can coach you if you need any help getting started.

Friends - The ones who love you for who you truly are, regardless of who you're trying to be.
Understanding - We are different, and that's okay. 'Normal' is an oppressive paradox.
Love - In a thousand forms.
Sensuality - There's so much more to life and relationships than marriage, missionary and monogamy. Your moral fortress is actually a prison. By wrapping yourself up within your beliefs, you are not protected from the world, you're trapped in yours.
New Experiences - Evolve, human. You have more in you than this. Try something you're afraid of, with an open mind. Try it twice, and notice the differences the second time around. Fear is the only enemy. Conquer it.
Touch - Whether its a light therapeutic massage, or something involving a tangle of limbs, touch is intoxicating. My favorite drug, because we both get high and I've got an endless supply. Lately I've been charging $100/hour as a massage artist. I used to sculpt, but I found that I like working flesh better than clay, and most humans already feel like exquisite works of art to me. Invite me to visit for a free demo.
My Passport - I need to go somewhere. Take me home with you! (and feed me. I like couches) Especially if home is in another country (and the food is spicy). I need a month somewhere else.
Multiple Relationships - I'm not looking for someone to 'complete' my life, but a couple people who can make it (more) awesome. I'm less interested in sleeping around than finding some vibrant lives to blend with mine. If you're driven and busy, we'll probably get along.

... and probably cats. More and more I'm noticing and being told I've got a lot of natural feline characteristics, including but not limited to anatomical articulation, behavior and movement style. I'm not a furry in any regard, but I have started using the creature concept a bit in my contortion work. I especially blame cats for the some of the way I touch and like to be touched. They were a major part of my light massage training.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Bartering. Take two products or services of relative value, and exchange them without the use of currency. I like bartering. Its much friendlier than buying and selling and trying to assign some kind of absolute value to things because value is entirely relative and in the end has more to do with the confidence of the seller than the item or service in question. I happen to have a multitude of skills and services available, and even a few products. At times these things are given freely, and at other times will cost up to $100/hour.

I offer: Yoga instruction; Pro massage; Welding; Art modeling; Photo modeling; Furniture building; Sculpting; Performance in Fire, Contortion; etc.

At this time, I am looking for: Haircuts; Headshots; Voice reel; Film reel; Art collaborations; Art modeling; Contortion/cirque lessons; Pro massage; Costumes; Accessories; Anything awesome; etc.
Now we can meet, exchange useful services and both come out happy without spending a dime.

Notice: sex is not on either list. Please do NOT ask to barter for anything sexual. Though.. if you believe you're the exception, I recommend disarming me with food before making any moves. I'm far more malleable when well-fed.

Human interaction, and how limited it is these days. Life is a choose-your-own-adventure book, and you can write-in new options. Try to realize what choices have been made FOR you, so you can discover all the choices you really have.

Love, truth, respect. I don't understand why people go so far out of their way to avoid these ideas in their lives sometimes. Why they allow themselves to act in an opposing manner... especially when they are self-aware enough to see it, and smart enough to understand it. These things are on the path to inner peace, and straying from them just creates strife in your life and others.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Probably working. This month alone (May), I was paid to...

-Do a photoshoot with my motorcycle and a nude model.
-Pose nude for art students at four different art schools.
-Deal a poker table in two different tournament.
-Breathe fire for a music video filmed in the Mojave.
-Build drawing benches out of wood for my online store.

BUT that doesn't mean that every Friday is busy, and with a schedule like mine, Friday is relative. If you have something fun to do on any night of the week (or just need a massage) feel free to invite me along.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I am not exclusive with my mind, heart or body, and I hope to connect with others who are as free to Live and Love.

I have been slow to admit it, but I badly need a muse. Someone who likes being naked without sexual expectation, who is (or wants to be) totally comfortable in their own skin, who is willing to be trained as an art model, and bold enough to pester me to practice my craft. My arts include drawing, painting, sculpting, and massage. I've already got some level of mastery in the tactile arts, so I'll be mainly working on sculpting and getting into painting, but you are of course welcome to free bodywork anytime you see me if you ask.

Every relationship is different, unique. I value the people I keep in my life. I don't just look for attraction to people, but some kind of soul connection. Once discovered, its there pretty much forever. Family isn't just who you're born with, but who you connect with. Sometimes that bond is innate, sometimes it is developed.

Want something that is /actually/ private? I may or may not be bi. Haven't experimented with guys yet. I just support diversity and often use that label as one of several filters against narrow-minded people. Heteroflexible would probably be the best way to label me, if you really feel the need to try.
Notice: That does not mean I'm looking to date single men. No. If you want to talk, try something more than "Hi" or "How's it goin," those are not conversation starters. Once again.. not dating gay men. Not here just to 'hook up' with anyone, of either gender. If you mention FWB in your initial message, the answer Will be No. I'm also picky about my physical relationships. If my skin doesn't tingle every time you touch me, there isn't enough chemistry to make that a major element of our interactions.

I am willing to say that I've had some pretty incredible sex with a few incredibly sexy people, and while not nearly as many as most of you must think, still plenty enough to feel that I'm living a charmed life.

Aaand I'm not 25.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
NOTE: I am currently and especially interested in someone to go Riding or Fishing with. Don't get pervy now, I mean riding horses and motorcycles. For fishing, I don't really care what sort as long as you don't think it's code for bar-hopping. Its been so long that I won't be picky, though I hope you have a spare rod and tackle I can use (again, not innuendo). Only preference is that its a little more interactive than the "throw your bait and wait" approach like lakeshore fishing.
(I only do that with online dating, ha!)

If you are interested in designing a custom relationship - borrowing from tradition and convention, but basing it on what actually works for the unique individual(s) involved. This could be sexual, sensual, romantic, artistic, or even completely platonic and still go several unelected directions.

If your living space offers privacy enough to lounge around nude, or you don't feel the need for such privacy. I sometimes get the artistic urge myself to draw or sculpt, but am pretty awkward at initiating it. Group motivation! Get nekkid! And on the other side of the coin, if you ever want to make art, just tell me to take my clothes off. Doesn't take much.
please note.. nudity is Not a precursor to sex. I've been nude in front of Thousands of people I have not had sex with. I can do it, so can you. Its only scary until you try it.. And then only for about five minutes.
.. especially looking for an artist who would like to trade off posing nude, or models/anyone who will pose for me in exchange for massage or yoga training. I need many hours of drawing practice.

If you are ready for change in your life.
I am a chaos element. I'd say I brazenly ignore social norms, except that I don't always notice them in the first place. The status quo is a joke without a punchline and vastly different between families, communities, states and countries. That thing you're hiding from, or hiding from others, is clear to me. I see it because I don't buy into it, I'm not a part of it. I'll help you deal with it and grow past it, or into it as the case may be. I'll eventually see your true self, and I can help you see it too. If you need to keep your skeletons in the closet, keep your distance.

If you want to buy me sushi.
Will gladly trade with therapeutic touch and/or massage, private yoga instruction, fire-dance lesson, relationship/life counseling, or whatever else I can do to coerce you to put that delicious manna into my mouth. Just buy me sushi, and we'll take it from there.
EDIT: sushi makes me an instant fawning fan, but any food type will still make me extra friendly. Especially Pizza. Offer me pizza. Do it.

I'm especially looking for people who can impact my life. TEACH ME something, be it social, emotional, sexual, productive or enlightening. Help me grow, and I'll love you for it. Add something cool to my life, and I'll keep you in it forever.

I'd like to meet someone who is Dominant. I'm a switch by nature, but most hetero relationships assume a dominant male, and I'm tall so it reinforces the stereotypical expectation. I rarely if ever encounter people who are naturally dominant enough to bring out my untested submissive side.

============MORE NOTES=============
If you're looking for a husband, look elsewhere... Unless you are a unicorn, or riding one.
If you're looking for a one-night-stand, just go away.
If you're looking for friends-with-benefits, see disclaimer*.
*must actually become friends, and still.. no promises. I'm nude friendly, touch-positive and sex-positive, but still not especially promiscuous. I don't look for sex, I look for friends, and occasionally things go further. Chemistry is only One of the requirements, and the bar has been set pretty high.

SO.. you want the candid post-script?
Cuddle buddies and modeling-partners need enough restraint to keep extensive physical contact in a non-sexual context. Control your kundalini! Bedroom applicants should be very intelligent, emotionally aware and very generous with your affections. If you are biologically capable of purring, you'll get frequent reasons to do so. For serious involvement potential, please include financial responsibility, moral/ethical flexibility, personal drive/motivation, belligerent creativity and an eagerness to go on crazy adventures. Must also have a valid passport, and all of the above should be aware of my proclivities and be non-judgmental. Once again.. if you have a problem with my lifestyle, it is simply that. A problem that You have. Deal with it on your end, or stay out of my life.
Just curious? Ask me about something. Anything.
Comments get read, Questions get responses.
Thank you.

In case you didn't know...
Periods of bliss are not optional.
When do you expect to ever be this young again? Don't just build your life, live it. Right Now. You might die in fifty years, or in five years, or five days.. Don't waste it with fear and hesitation, or by following a bunch of rules made by someone you'll never meet, that don't benefit you in any way.
