I have on occasion written about ethics, and travel, and other stuff at http://leithmc.livejournal.com/ though not recently.
I have good social chops for an introvert. I'm pretty confident most of the time, and love to perform. Being an introvert just limits my endurance for these things.
Labels are sometimes useful
Poly: I've been in a committed open marriage since 1995. My wife and I both date other people individually, but not as a couple.
This blog post explains my feelings about love, sex, and dating better than I ever have. http://brighterthanabuoy.blogspot.com/2014/01/casual-love.html
Sex positive: As far as I'm concerned, sexual expression is as natural and appropriate as any other kind. I've had a lot of partners and always been open about my intentions.
Kink: I sometimes go dom for the right person. Otherwise meh.
These days I've come to really appreciate a quiet night in more often than not. But for a more active date, blues dancing or salsa, or doing something else with an athletic component tends to work well.
Meeting for tea, snacks, or cocktails is fine for starting out.
Availability: I work and have a full family life, so I'm really only available for occasional dates unless we have a scheduled activity in common.
Also, I'm not much of a night owl these days unless I have a really good reason.
Space: My house is too full to bring dates home. What about yours?
Kids: I have twin girls in middle school. Not making any more. It also means that, most of the time, I can't bring dates home. This last bit is expected to change in September 2014.
I communicate best in person or by e-mail. Phone and text is for "Where are you? Okay. See you in 10".
I'm better one on one than in groups unless I'm performing/teaching/presenting.
I'm a physical guy regardless of my intentions, and I have a highly developed sense of touch. (Musician hands.)
I'm not a fan of cigarette smoke, so drink something before you kiss me. If you're drunk, give me a chance to catch up. And I have little patience for loud parties unless I'm performing or putting moves on someone.
Here's a compatibility test from a couple of years ago. Includes some sexy stuff. It's about 90% accurate so far.
