I like to communicate openly and for my partner and I to feel free to talk about anything, no matter how silly or irrational or heavy or anything else. I think I basically wrote that idea here before, somewhere in my profile. This here is just an impromptu clearing of some thoughts I'm having today.
As far as what I'm "looking for," I guess the simplest answer is that I'd love a girlfriend in my life. The whole truth is not simple, though, because I do not require that every woman I go on a date with or spend some intimate time with be a potential "serious" relationship. I really view human relationships in general as just too varied and layered and complex for me to waste time perceiving or labeling them in categories as rudimentary as "relationship" and "fling," or whatever other Aristotelian options people may be inclined to rest their perceptions on.
Sorry for the clunky sentence there. The above is all first-draft stuff off the cuff. I'll probably delete it soon, unless it starts to seem well-received, or I just forget about my okc for a while. And now, ladies and women who don't necessarily identify as "ladies," here is my standard, more polished profile content:
I love caves, theatre, my bicycle, books, thought and consciousness, astronomy, ontology, camping, women, movies, love, music, acting, and improv. I love to write. I'm a co-producer with an Austin theatre company, and I play a lot of improv with a couple of troupes. I even tour sometimes with one of them; I love to visit different cities and perform in them--or not perform, and just enjoy them.
I seek out beauty and authentic moments. I find some kind of joy in finding the beauty that is kicked around and overlooked and under-appreciated in this scary and lovely world.
I've never been married, never cheated on anybody, never contracted any std's, and I've never procreated... so for any of those events, you have an opportunity to be my first!
I love being able to be fiercely and creatively and dynamically myself with another person. Despite the popular wisdom that we must all be independent and nobody needs anybody else to be complete, I am happier when I can share my life experiences with someone. That doesn't mean I need to be with someone all the time. My partner and I should be free to have our personal space and time whenever we want. Freedom is good stuff. And I think every relationship has its own dynamic identity and "rules," and it's always good to talk openly with each other about that, and about nearly everything, too.
